Reel Talent is a video slot from Microgaming, developed by Just For The Win, with 5 reels and 20 paylines. Released in November 2018, you can play this game at online casinos such as Guts, PlayOjo or CasinoCruise.
The theme of Reel Talent is a little unusual. Take a talent show such as America’s Got Talent and mix it with the characters from the animated movie Zootopia. Seriously, that’s what it looks like.
Various animals (wolf, crocodile, bunny and lion) showcase their talents on the reels (guitar, fire breathing, card tricks and singing, respectively). It’s quirky and entertaining and the background soundtrack is quite fun and fitting to the theme.
The Reel Talent logo is the most valuable symbol on the reels. It’s worth 50x your stake for a 5-of-a-kind win. The lion follows with 15x your stake for such a winning combination. The crocodile pays 12x your stake, the wolf 9x and the bunny 7.5x your stake for 5 on a payline.
The remaining four symbols depict the items our main players use for their talents (microphone, torch, guitar, cards).
You can play this slot from €0.10 to €100.
During the base game, you’ll be hoping for consecutive wins. The symbol that form the winning combination will be put into the symbol storage on the left-hand side. If you have one, two or three symbols forming winning combinations, each will land in the storage area. Should you start out with just one symbol due to one win, you receive a free re-spin to give you another chance at getting a winning combination and another symbol or perhaps even two.
So, you can fill up the three spots in the storage area in one spin or as many as three spins, if all of them win. Should you be unable to add more symbols, the storage will be emptied, and you begin again, which is the most frequent occurrence.
The Wild symbol is the only one that cannot be stored in the storage area.
However, if you manage to fill the symbol storage with 1, 2 or three different symbols, you will start the Superspin feature:
The theoretical RTP (Return to Player) of Reel Talent is 96.03%, which is just an average value. Indeed, it seems almost low and it can hardly be surprising because Reel Talent is a very volatile slot. You will spin many rounds without a single win on the reels, which can be quite frustrating and a challenge to your budget.
But when you do fill up the symbol storage and maybe even collect only 1 or 2 different symbols, the wins can be impressive and absolutely worth your while. Reel Talent is a lot of fun and also a bit of a challenge. If you like the mechanics but not the theme, you can also play Icy Gems, which offers exactly the same mechanics with a rather non-descript theme.
