Surfin’ Reels Slot Review
I grew up in a surfing town as the only kid in my neighborhood that couldn’t stand on a board to save his life. Don’t get me wrong, I love the ocean, but I was contrary when it came to sports and somewhat of a beach goth. Looking back I kind of wish I’d learnt, but I don’t doubt I could boogie board circles and build sandcastles around those blonde haired buffoons.
Surf’s up broskis! Surfin’ Reels is a 5-reel, 20-payline video slot powered by software from Booming Games. Symbols include a hunky long-haired surfer dude, board wax, a shark tooth necklace, and royal values from J to A. The Wild is represented by a silhouette of a surfer catching a wave, a Volkswagen Kombi, the jackpot is represented by a surfboard standing upright in sand, and the Bonus is represented by a Wheel of Fortune.
Controls are located below the reels and work as follows: Paytable, Info, Total Bet +/-, Auto Play, Spin, Max Bet, Balance, Music, Sound Effects, and Turbo Spin.
So, what features can you expect from Surfin’ Reels? Wild: Wild substitutes for all symbols except the Scatter, Jackpot, and Bonus symbols. It does not have a payout of its own.
The first bonus feature you need to look out for is the landing 3 Scatters triggers the free spins round. You’ll have to choose from 3 free spins options: 12 free spins with a x2 multiplier. 8 free spins with a x3 multiplier. 6 free spins with a x4 multiplier.
Quick Hit Jackpot occurs when you land 3 or more Jackpot symbols on the reels: 3 symbols: stake x7 4 symbols: stake x15 5 symbols: stake x25 6 symbols: stake x50
The Wheel of Fortune can appear anywhere on the reels, you’ll just need to give it a spin to determine your prize (multipliers of x2, x3, x5 and x10). If more than one Wheel of Fortune lands on the reels at one time, the multipliers will be added together.
Surfin’ Reels is honestly one of Booming’s better slots of late. The graphics are fun and super retro, the sound effects are beachy and make you want to grab a board, move to the Caribbean and surf for the rest of your life, and there’s gameplay on any device.
The max coin win is a pretty generous 20,000.
Surfer or not, this is a slot that literally anyone can enjoy. With a great theme, big wins, jackpots, multipliers, and free spins, Surfin’ Reels is one cowabunga good time.
