At first the slot seems to be a regular five-reel slot with fifteen line. Let’s face it; we have seen plenty of those. Here we have the regular set of paysymbols. Here, we may wager on one or more paylines. The interface is convenient. It allows us to choose fast by hitting a button at the bottom of the screen. In the slot, the wins are paid one way: from left to right, with the exception of the Scatter wins. Those are paid both ways. Scatters here are nice. Scatter wins are multiplied by the total bet. What’s more, they are also added to line wins.
But apart from this As the Reels Turn 1 is nothing like any other ordinary slot. It looks more like a regular TV show. It starts with the first episode. Watch it, and after you will be able to play. The slot features seven key episodes. You will be able to watch the next episode only after landing three or more Advance to Next Scene icons. After the scene is over, you will return to the game. If you want to refresh your memories, you may re-watch any scene. Just go to the Game Map menu section and click on the episode you need. Game Map feature keeps track of your progress and is always at hand – at the upper right corner of the reel screen.
When it comes to the paysymbols the situation gets a bit tricky. There are only six regular pay icons. First, there are the Don, Chrissy and Matt. Hit five and your stake will be multiplied 300 times. Also, there are three more symbols: a bottle of wine, a lobster and an envelope. They are paid less. Hit five of those and your win will be multiplied 100 times.
The rest of the symbols are Scatters. There are Scatter icons signed “Bonus.” They activate bonus rounds. The scatter signed “Advance to Next Scene” will literally take you to the next scene of our slot-show. You need to land at least three of those anywhere on the reels to see what’s going to happen next.
There are two more Scatters: Tommy W and Ivan. Tommy’s symbol comes with a juicy multiplier: 50x for five. And keep in mind, that Scatter wins are multiplied by total stake. Land three or more Tommy’s on the reels to activate the bonus round.
Ivan symbol also features a nice multiplier. Hit five of a kind, and your total stake will be multiplied by 50. What’s more, at least three Ivan icons trigger the Free Spin bonus round.
There are two Jackpot icons. The one signed “El Paradiso” offers a nice payout for the lucky ones. Hit five of those, and your stake will be multiplied by 1000. An icon with piles of chips is yet another Jackpot symbol. It offers the same wins as the previous one.
As for the stakes you may bet from one to five coins on a line. The coin value goes from 0.1 to 1. There is a Bet Max button. It allows you to skip counting and bet the maximum amount of coins on every line. You just have to choose the coins value.
What makes this slot different from the rest of its kind is the bonus feature. Or I should rather say features. The slot features several bonus rounds.
Tommy Wong Bonus Round gets triggered when you hit three or more bonus symbols anywhere on the reels. The bonus play offers you to choose between several Tommy Wong. Try to guess which the audience will enjoy the most.
Another Bonus Round is Ivan the Fish one. Hit three or more bonus symbols anywhere on the reels and start the bonus play.
Ivan the Fish is a Free Spins bonus play, where you will be granted ten free spins at x3 multiplier. The wager value for the Free Spin Round is the same as the bet value that triggered the game. It stays fixed, and you cannot change it at the Free Spin round.
The third bonus round int he Counterfeit Chips Bonus Round. It is a variant of a good old pick-me game. Hit at least three bonus icons on the reels. In the bonus game mode, you will be offered to pick between several casino chips. You may go on forever gathering the winning points until you hit a Stop Chip. Then, you will go back to the regular game mode. The winning chips payouts will be accumulated for the final payout.
But the bonus rounds don’t end on the third one. There are more to come.
The fourth bonus round, called the Advance to the Next Scene Bonus Round. To trigger this bonus round you once again need to land at least three bonus symbols on the reels. This round is all about cut scenes. You will be offered to watch some of those. After some cut scenes there may be some other bonus rounds waiting for you.
Like Terry’s Car Bonus Round. This bonus round is triggered after you have watched the second cut scene as viewed on the game map. There, you would have to choose between several cars. Pick one that Terry would like the most and collect the bonus points.
After the fourth cut scene comes The Slot Machine Bonus Round. Just pick one of the slot machines before you and collect bonus points. They will be added to your final payout. You may go on as long as you want, until you hit an empty slot. Then you will go back to the main game mode.
What happens if you hit several bonus rounds at one spin? Which is more than possible, considering the plethora of Bonus Rounds in the slot. The slot rules say, you will play the first one.
So, are you a TV shows fan? Are you into sitcoms or endless melodramatic soap operas? Or you prefer drama shows? Anyway, this slot is just up your alley. There is plenty of suspence-filled drama, jokes and romance. Who told you have to choose between two of your different past-times: watching TV and spinning slots? Now, you may have it all. As the Reels Turn is a wins-loaded i-Slot aka prime-time TV series. Thrilled and intrigued? Then, take a spin.
