How To Play Reel Talent
Reel Talent has a 5×3 reels array, 20 paylines and RTP 96.3%. It is themed on a talent show and most of the symbols represent the competitors and their equipment. There’s a rabbit magician with a hand of cards, a fire-eating crocodile with a torch, a rocking wolf with a guitar and a lion singer with a microphone.
Reel Talent has a simple, compelling gimmick that gives any win a chance of turning into an epic win. Next to the reels there’s an area with space for 3 symbols; this is the Symbol Storage Area.
It all starts with a win; the winning symbol is placed in the storage area. More than one symbol may be stored; this happens if there are multiple line wins on different symbols (but note that Wilds do NOT get placed in storage).
A re-spin then takes place. If it does not produce a win the symbol comes out of storage again and normal play resumes. If it DOES produce a win, the winning symbol goes into the next vacant space in the storage area, even if it is the same as a symbol that is already there. If the storage area is not full another re-spin takes place. If all three spaces in the storage area become full during the re-spins, a Superspin is triggered.
There are three types of Superspins depending on how many different symbols are in the storage.
- Showtime Superspin – 3 different symbols in storage
- Big Stage Superspin – 2 different symbols in storage
- Solo Performance Superspin – all symbols in storage are the same
For the Superspin, all symbols on the reels are replaced with the symbols from the storage – and in the case of Solo Performance, this results in a full screen of the same symbol and a fairly impressive win even with one of the lower scoring symbols (70x stake for the lowest).
That’s all there is to it – sounds easy, doesn’t it? Well, the downside is that three wins in a row are pretty rare, wins in general are not very common and when you do win, 3 of a kind usually pays less than your stake – but that’s high variance for you!
