NetEnt slots come in all shapes and sizes and the Reel Rush slot is among those that are as colourful as they are action-packed and fast-moving. Unlike some of NetEnt’s most recent online slots that involve quite complicated storylines, this one is no more difficult to follow than Starburst. In some ways, Reel Rush reminds us of Starburst. Not just in its simplicity, but with its juicy symbols representing just about every colour of the rainbow and making you feel that you’ve just been transported to another world. Yet, Reel Rush is by far more multi-dimensional and intriguing. Want to know why?
If you’re a little bored of the usual 5x3 reel slots, when getting three Scatters to activate free spins is the name of the game, you’ll find Reel Rush to be a real breath of fresh air. The design of the reels is different, as is the method of activating the free spins with not a single Scatter symbol in sight.
Aesthetically, Reel Rush reminds one of 90s video games - particularly of the platform variant. This will no doubt appeal to those of you who enjoy old-school style games like Mario Kart or Rayman. Even the sound effects in this game are classically retro, with music straight from a 90s arcade machine.
NetEnt have gone out of their way to be different to what everyone else is doing and the result, love it or hate, is that Reel Rush is a completely unique experience. If you enjoy alternative online casino games then this is a slot worth your time.
If you’re familiar with NetEnt slots, you’ll surely know by now how to go about placing bets and activating bonuses. Reel Rush will be fairly self-explanatory to the seasoned player. If you’re a newbie, fear not - Reel Rush is simple. The first thing you need to do is adjust your stake. You do so by changing the Level and the Coin Value until you get to the one you want.
Pressing the Max Bet button saves you the hassle of choosing your stake as it just plays at the highest possible amount. But bear in mind, that’s a whopping £125 a spin, so you better be feeling lucky. Using AutoPlay allows you to play Reel Rush on automatic pilot for as many spins as you choose.
Appearing on reels 2,3,4 and 5 (both on the base game and during re-spins/free spins), the Wild symbol can substitute for all other symbols. You can have several Wilds present on the reels on any given spin.
Every time you secure a win of any variety, you’ll be awarded a re-spin, similar to the one you get on Starburst when the Wild symbol appears. But before you get it, you’ll notice that two of the squares on Reel 1 open up, meaning that two additional symbols come into play. More symbols, more chances to win. If you secure a win on the re-spin, you’ll get yet another re-spin and two additional squares will open up on the grid. This process continues until you stop getting a win or get five re-spins in a row which would then lead us to...
After five re-spins you’re awarded five free spins. That’s right. Once your fifth re-spin has been awarded, it’s free spins time and all the squares on the reels will be opened up now. It’s during the free spins that the 3,125 different ways to win come into play.
|Main Game:||45 ways to win|
|First Re-spin:||135 ways to win|
|Second Re-spin:||405 ways to win|
|Third Re-spin:||675 ways to win|
|Fourth Re-spin:||1,125 ways to win|

|Free Spins Round:||3,125 ways to win|
Reel Rush is considered a medium variance slot. That means you have to be prepared for a few periods where your bank may go down, always in the knowledge that a good run can see it bounce back to a nice, juicy balance in no time.
If you get to the free spins round, it’s because you’ve already had five wins in a row during the re-spins, plus the win that activated the re-spins in the first place. So, you get to keep all that plus whatever you win during the free spins themselves. But even just a couple of good wins in a row during the re-spins can see you secure some decent prizes.
The Reel Rush slot game is not a jackpot slot and does not have a fixed or progressive jackpot, although when free spins are in play and the coin value set to the max, wins of up to £125,000 are possible. It might not be a mega jackpot, but it's a pretty impressive payout if you're lucky enough to land it.
Online slot games that feature ways to win don't require symbols to line up in order to get a payout. Instead, winning combinations can be made with matching symbols landing across the reels in any direction. Ways to win on the Reel Rush slot basically means that there are 3,125 possible combinations on the reel's 5x5 setup (5x5x5x5x5 = 3,125) and the mechanic is in fact only available on 5-reel slot games. The full 3,125 ways to win in Reel Rush is activated during the Free Spins round.
