Reef Run – Game of the Week
Picture your favourite sea food in a white-knuckle race to the finish line and if you picked the winner you’ll be rewarded with up to 25,000 coins. If you can paint this mental image then you’re pretty close to what Reef Run, our game of the week, is all about! Okay, so maybe it’s not all about that but you get the idea.
Reef Run is one of the latest creations to come out of Yggdrasil. It’s a standard 5-reel-3-rows-20-paylines game that you can play for as little as €0.20 per spin up to €100 if you’re feeling frisky. Like the name suggests, there is a very clear aquatic theme with various underwater wild life as symbols, traditional card playing symbols are all gone.
There are also no wild symbols, but since there are only six different symbols available it’s not that hard to hit winning paylines, especially since they can be stacked up to two symbols. That’s the basic of it so now we’re moving on to what really makes this game tick, the free spins game.
Reef Run Free Spins Round
First off, to participate in the race during the Reef Run free spins game, you have to activate the additional Golden Bet next to the spin button. It will add 5 coins to your bet every spin but you can deactivate this between every spin if you want to.
You need at least three Free Spins symbols to start the Free Spins game, but the more you hit the more spins you get, all the way up to 60 spins in one go. Free Spins can be re-triggered and when you’re in the Free Spins game you only need to hit two symbols to get two extra spins.
If the Golden Bet is active you have to choose which of the sea creatures you think will win the race. The winner will be the one that pays out the most during the Free Spins game. You’ll be following the race at the top of the screen. Still, there’s more to this than meets the eyes.
Any symbol that wins will get a win multiplier added onto it for the rest of the spins. You second win on the same symbol adds a 5x win multiplier, third win ups winnings by 10x, from the fourth winning spin on the same symbols it will pay out 20x. These multipliers are added regardless of whether or not you’re playing with the Golden Bet.
At the end of the free spins round, and you’ve been playing with the Golden Bet active, and your pick wins you’ll get a random coin prize of anywhere from 400 coins up to a max of 25,000 coins on top of any potential winnings. Don’t you think it’s about time that you find out if you’re good at picking winners?
