Reel Splitter, from Microgaming, is a brand-new game that is sure to garner all sorts of positive attention and reviews. The symbol layout is a classic 4x3 configuration but Microgaming has figured out how to work even more excitement into the mix with the Reel Splitter bonus mode. Apart from the Reel Splitter addition, this online slot with 81 paylines also features a lucrative Free Spins mode, a Wild, and more.

Reel Split Re-Spin

To start things off, it’s probably best to get into the feature that gave this online slot machine its name. The Reel Split Re-Spin feature is triggered at random when players achieve combinations of four symbols across any of the 81 paylines. While it is not a guaranteed trigger, there is reason to get excited when you see a combo of four, because things could get pretty interesting for you.

When the Reel Split Re-Spin feature is activated, the reels split down the centre and a fifth shows up in the gap. The new reel spins while all the others stay where they were, and when it stops players should look out for any new winning combinations that the fifth reel brought to the table.

An interesting thing to keep in mind with the Reel Split feature is that it gives you the opportunity for a combination of five symbols (since you already got four in a row to trigger the mode). However, it also opens up a whole new selection of paylines, bringing the grand total up from 81 to Microgaming’s signature 243.

This exciting new feature is sure to be a lot of fun, but there are a couple of things to keep in mind to avoid disappointment. One is that Free Spins cannot be activated through the Reel Split mode, and the other is that no matter how many scatter symbols you get on the reel at any time, they will not trigger the Reel Split.

Free Spins and Wilds

Free Spins in Reel Splitter are fairly standard. Getting at least 3 Free Spins symbols on the reels at the same time results in 8 Spins while landing all 4 brings you to double that amount. One nice thing about the Free Spins here is, in a similar fashion to the Reel Split Re-Spin mode, the reels expand for the Free Spins to allow for the full 243 payline configuration. That means more chances to win big, for free! Who could argue with that?

Beyond that, there is another impressive feature as well. The middle reel that opens up is a Stacked Wild that covers all 3 rows and stays put for the duration of the Free Spins. It doesn’t take much guesswork to see how that could also translate to some hefty Ringgit payouts. In fact, we won’t be surprised to see this slot become very popular in Malaysia and beyond.

Final Words

If you like slots, you are likely no stranger to the types of games Microgaming puts out. The developer is known for quality entertainment that stays fun for hours while offering some truly life-changing payout potential. This title is a fantastic new addition to the company’s long list of successful titles and we think you would do well to give it a try. After all, a slot with an RTP of more than 96% is always worth a gander.
