Golden Reel Slot Machine

Classic retro fruit machine action with a superb progressive jackpot, Golden Reel is NOVOMATIC at their best. I've recently reviewed a few slots from this European giant which depart from their traditional themes, so it's good to see they're not forgetting their core audience with a return to the classics.

It's a great online slot for fans of what-you-see-is-what-you-get and fans of the AWP. In fact, with some of the updates for a 2017 audience and the bonuses on offer, it's hard to think of anyone who wouldn't enjoy this game. Let's take a closer look in the fruit bowl to uncover the rewards on offer.

Fruity Action And Easy No-Download Play

Golden Reel is available on desktop and smartphone/tablet for Android or iOS. Load the game up and you'll discover five reels of fruit with a gold bar Scatter and a joker Wild. Golden Reels has 40 paylines offering you multiple winning options and a really good bet range to suit all budgets. You can play from 0.40 to 100, making it a versatile game that allows you to manage your bankroll well.

Combinations of fruit pay out for 3,4 and 5OAK, the grinning joker will offer you 1,000 coins for 5OAK on the max. bet, and those glittering gold bullion bars will bag you 8,000 coins for 5OAK.

Hit 10 Free Spins In The Bonus

But, as is the case for the modern slot, the Wilds and Scatters aren't just about their combination win - they're about the bonus they can trigger.

Wilds substitute for all other symbols, except the Scatter, offering you additional chances to make those fruity combos. Three or more of the gold bullion Scatters landing across the reels will trigger an additional 10 spins for free.

A Five Million-Coin Jackpot? That'll Do Nicely

So, lots of simple gameplay, some straightforward free spins thrown into the mix to suit a modern online slot and you have a very enjoyable game. However, NOVOMATIC do like a finale with a bang and, whilst this game is certainly simple in its look and its gameplay you can't help but take the progressive jackpot very seriously.

With a potential payout of nearly 5 million on a top bet when we reviewed, Golden Reel certainly demands to be given the respect it's due.

To score this wonderfully golden prize you'll need to land a full house of jokers - that's an entire 5x4 set of reels worth of grinning, red-cheeked joy. Inevitably your key skill in this game is patience. While the general gameplay is medium-variance and you can expect a regular stream of small top-up wins from your fruity reels, you will have to be patient and have a good bankroll to hold out for the jackpot.

Want More Progressives? Try EGT

If you like the sound of the stunning rewards that progressives can offer you can also check out games from EGT, who are well-known for their randomly-triggered and often multiple progressive jackpots. A great example is Route of Mexico: a modern online slot with great graphics which is pretty far removed from the classic/retro style of Golden Reel.

However, if the classic AWP is your bag or you have no patience for a possible jackpot then you could check out NOVOMATIC's Crystal Odyssey. It's a glorious space-age trip and with its fantastic 70s-feel soundtrack you'll be swapping progressive jackpots for progressive rock!

Golden Reel Conclusion

NOVOMATIC, masters of breathing new life into the classic AWP, have done a great job with Golden Reel. Its retro and simple gameplay has enough additional features for it to compete with the modern-styled online slots. And, of course, there's always the potential to land that magical progressive jackpot which, for almost all players we're guessing would turn 'pleasing' into 'ecstatic'.
