Lucky 5 Reeler is a rather strange slot by Barcrest. You ever had the feeling that with just one extra spin, you could have won so much more? If so, you are going to love this game! Namely, you don’t spin the reels just once, per wager, you can actually spin up to five times. The system it uses to provide this is pretty peculiar. That is to say, the chances of winning increase with every extra spin. Technically speaking, the fifth spin should always yield the highest winnings and the value of the fifth spin will never be lower than the ones of the preceding spins. Now you know where the name of this slot stems from.
How to play Lucky 5 Reeler?
At first glance, this slot seems to be a regular one. More specifically, this slot has five reels and three rows, and standard symbols ranging from tens to aces. This standard layout, we think, is a good starting point. However, there are four screens positioned right above the slot, and with these, the normalness ends. After the first spin, the result will be displayed on the first screen. The result of the second spin goes to the second screen, and so on. Also, the winnings per result will be shown below the results.
Up until now, this might sound logic. On the other hand, when you see the feature at work, you might find yourself wondering what Barcrest had in mind when producing this. When you have a winning combination on your reels, the winning symbols will stay put during the next spin. During this next spin, the other symbols will be replaced. With this, you hope that your first winning combination will become ever bigger, thus yielding a higher winning. After the fifth spin, the accumulated sum of all single spins will be added up and cashed out. Therefore, you won’t just receive the highest result or the average of the five spins; you will receive the results of all five spins combined.
Pay lines in Lucky 5 Reeler
Lucky 5 Reeler has ten pay lines, which seems like just a few. However, there is something special about these pay lines. Normally, a winning combination can only be formed starting from the first reel. However, in this slot, the only requirement is that you have three matching symbols adjacent to each other. Furthermore, that is, regardless of its starting position. This is especially lucrative when considering the mechanism of the five spins. It would also be good to know that you can actually also play with fewer than ten pay lines. However, do bear in mind that, when doing that, your chances of big, progressive winnings will be decreased.
At the bottom of the slot, you can alter your wager per spin. Also, this slot has an autoplay function, with a maximum of 50 automated spins per configuration. However, with the five-spin feature, this means that you will end up with 250 automated spins. This is a slot you just might need some time for to get used to, but it still is an appealing slot.
