Rapid Reels Slots

Rapid-ReelsRapid Reels is a classic slot machine designed by Microgaming, whose action revolves around the idea of navigating rapids on boats. The rapids in question are made out of cash, so you’re basically rowing in money. I love the idea and the theme was well implemented, with a couple of cartoon characters navigating the dangerous cash currents, but otherwise with a classic inspiration that is quite visible in most of the symbols.

Rapid Reels has 3 reels and 5 paylines, which makes it a rather normal classic slot. A wild symbol is its only feature, while its top payout is worth $30,000.

Features of Rapid Reels

The slot has only one feature inside, a wild symbol that is so often introduced in slot machines that have 3 reels. With the image of one of the two characters from the boat, the wild symbol is going to be the one to offer you the biggest payouts available, and at the same time it will act as a substitute for other symbols.

First, let’s see how the jackpot is offered. You need three wild symbols that take over the same payline to get paid, but the actual value of the prize depends on the number of the line. The lowest payout comes from the 1st line, which awards 1,000 coins. The 5th line offers the most, 6,000 coins.

As the wild, you need one or two of these icons to help you out. Symbols can form their own combinations as well, without the wild being present, but since they are available as well you tend to get paid more often.

Betting options and jackpots

Since you have to cover 5 paylines with your bets, you have to use 5 coins if you want to activate them all. For each coin, you choose the value, whose minimum is at $0.25, while the maximum is at $5. If you want a shot at the biggest prize possible, you have to spend $25 per round.

Like many other 5 line slots, it offers a differentiated top payout, depending on which one the combination lands. The best paying line is the 5th one, offering up to 6,000 coins ($30,000).

Design and symbols

The rapids of cash that the two happy tourists are navigating look pretty great, with lots of green dollar bills in them. A light blue background with mountains barely visible in the distance is used behind the game area. The reels are simple and white, while the paytable uses various shades of blue and shows off the classic icons and the one that is themed.

Symbols: Rower (6,000 coins, wild), Blue 7 (300 coins), Red Three Bar (100 coins), Blue Two Bar (50 coins), Yellow One Bar (20 coins) and Cherries (10 coins).

Is It Worth Playing?

It’s a fun looking game, and the graphics make it an appealing choice. In most ways it’s a very common type of slot though.

Rapid Reels can be found at any Microgaming casino, where you get a chance to play it for real money or in free mode.
