The underwater theme, cheery soundtrack and cartoon-style graphics are the fun foundations for Reef Run Slot, which has 20 fixed Paylines on a conventional 5×3 grid. It’s a Yggdrasil Gaming classic that’s been floating around since 2014! And, as all pirates know, the best treasures are to be discovered below the surface.
Since this fast-paced game is set deep in the ocean, the background is quite dark, although the characters here are colourful. All of marine life is present, with rocks, bubbles and the like adding to the overall picture.
How to play
Dive in from 20p a pop or for up to £40 a spin in Reef Run, which is fully optimised for all mobile devices.
The symbols are all different sea creatures, with no card values or numbers in sight. Instead, expect to see sea horses and snails, crabs, octopuses and lobsters. Create winning combos in the usual way.
Reef Run Slot special features
You won’t find any Wild symbols in Reef Run Slot. The Scatter is present, though, and it’s a green pufferfish. (This creature might not be much of a looker, but hook five on a Payline and look forward to payouts of 1,000x stake.)
Slightly unusually, you only need two (as opposed to the usual three) Scatters to trigger this one, and you can land them wherever you like on the reels. In return, you can look forward to up to 60 free whirls, according to how many activating symbols you landed. (Four gives you 20 freebies, for example.)
Win more freebies while the round is in play when you land a minimum of a further pair of Scatters. With two additional Scatters, you enjoy a pair of free whirls. For other amounts, you get the same haul as in the base game.
What makes this round even better is that, whenever you land a winning combo, the Level Up Multiplier kicks in as a nice little earner.
The fish symbol which contributed to your winning combination adds a multiplier to your following win. Multipliers go up with each win, from 1x to 5x and 10x until the maximum 20x.
The tallies are recorded to the side of the reels.
Part with five extra coins for a ‘golden’ bet in the Reef Run Slot. This happens immediately before a free spins round, and you merely have to pick the sea creature that will swim the fastest to win. Get it right and you could win up to 25,000 coins.
The maximum win in Reef Run is €88,000.
Return to Player (RTP)
RTP or Return to Player is a generous 96.4%. Meanwhile, the variance is on the lower side of medium, slightly unusually for Yggdrasil, which typically produces games with higher volatility, meaning you can expect a steadier flow of wins. The hit frequency is high at above 40%.
While the ocean has been explored as a slot theme previously, Reef Run Slot has a style that’s all its own, along with some interesting features. You should find it quirky; equally, it offers plenty in the way of fun and entertainment.
And while the number of extra features may not be the highest, the free spins round, in particular, should be enticing enough to keep you playing.
