Do gaming developers like to create classic slots just so they can say “that’s a classic”? Because with the churn-out of fruit-inspired slots, it sometimes seems like that’s the case. First, we had reinvigorated fruit machine games – slots with bars, bells and fruit aplenty. But these slots evolved to fruit-based games with new twists and features added to them. Just For The Win’s latest slot – Reel Splitter – certainly fits into that category to give us a fresh and tasty fruit slots experience.
Fruity Fun Juicy Jackpots
Reel Splitter is a four reel slot that features a lip-smacking 81 paylines. We get fruit symbols (Cherries, Lemons, Kiwis) and glammed up card values. Then, like other fruit based slots such as Fruity 3×3 which gives us nine mini-games in one or Fruit Spin which introduces Lucky Wheels, Reel Splitter serves up a unique and potentially lucrative slot feature.
The Reel Splitter symbol triggers the Respin feature, which expands the reels to five and the paylines to 243! The Free Spins symbol does the same, expanding the reels and Ways to Win, massively boosting our chances to win. In fact, we can win up to 2,717 times our stake, which is nifty for a classic slot.
That’s A Classic
As developers keep on releasing fruit-based slots, the competition doesn’t just involve updating graphics and animations. Slots need their own selling points. Reel Splitter does well in this instance, giving us a cool soundtrack, jazzy graphics and a split reel feature with Free Spins. It makes for a fun slot to play in any fruit machine portfolio and gives us more than a hankering for the next one!
