Reef Run at bet365 NZ is a bubbly and cheerful online video slot game powered by Yggdrasil. The game has an underwater theme and features top-class 3D graphics, smooth animation and an entertaining background music track. The backdrop to the game is a view of a rather grand looking underwater city. The city itself looks more like an amusement park than anything else with large oddly shaped buildings and curvy slides popping out of various windows. The reels appear translucent with the various aquatic animal symbols bobbing into place whenever the spin button is pressed.
When it comes to the slot setup, Reef Run is based on the classic slot machine setup of 5 spinning reels with a total of 20 paylines. In this game players can set the number of coins bet per payline from 0.01 coins up to five coins. Players can also select the number of paylines to play on each spin from one up to 20. The more paylines played, the greater the chance of hitting on a winning combination. On the reels, all the game symbols are type of aquatic creatures that live in the underwater city.
High Paying Aquatic Creatures
The highest paying symbol in Reef Run is the large green puffer fish. Finding all five of these guys will pay out the maximum amount of 1000 coins on a standard bet. The second highest paying symbol is the moustachioed crab followed by the lobster and glittery octopus. The two lowest paying symbols include the psychedelic snail and the Spanish looking seahorse. In addition to the standard slot machine, the game also includes a free spins bonus round where all the symbols act as multipliers.
Breaking away from tradition, Reef Run does not offer a Wild symbol or a Scatter symbol for that matter. The one and only bonus feature in the game is the free spins bonus round. The large “free spins” symbol is the key to activating the round. Landing 2 or more free spins symbols anywhere on the reels will start the round. In this game, the more free spins icons that trigger the round, the more free spins are awarded. Landing just two symbols will reward players with just 2 free spins.
Free Spins with Symbol Multipliers
If players land 3 free spins icons on the reels, the number of free spins increases to 10. Landing four will up the number to 20 and for all five free spins icons, the number of free spins increases to a healthy 60 free spins. The bonus round is where all the reel symbols take on a different role. Whenever any symbol forms a winning combination, that particular symbol will take a step up on the multiplier scale.
In Reef Run, a symbol can jump from 1x to 5x in a single spin. On the next spin, the same symbol can jump from 5x to 10x providing a much bigger win. Finally the same symbol can jump to a maximum of 20x offer huge payouts. This is the case with all the symbols in the free spins round which means big payouts for all the symbols on all free spins.
