Reactor (Red Tiger Gaming) - Introduction
Having been exclusively available at a few selected casinos, it's now time for the network-wide launch of Reactor by Red Tiger Gaming. This futuristic looking creation is played on a 5-reel, 20-payline reel set that allows players to win both ways. It comes with a bundle of extras including variations of wilds and multipliers of up to 10x. Reactor is playable on all devices from 0.20 to 20 EUR per spin and offers plenty of entertainment as well as great potential.
Production-wise it's well executed and pleasing to the eye. It's hard to tell exactly what we're looking at here, but there's undoubtedly a futuristic feel to this slot. We picture the action taking place in some sort of fusion reactor onboard a spaceship billions of lightyears from earth or wherever your imagination takes you. The sound effects team have done a solid job too adding excitement to the gameplay although the main theme, that has this game show kind of vibe going on, seems a bit out of place.
In any case, the result is an impressive one and it's quite apparent that a lot of time and labour has been invested into the production, not to mention the RNG working in the background to balance the slot.
Reactor (Red Tiger Gaming) - Symbols & Paytable
On the reels you'll find 4 neon coloured radioactive stones and 4 high-value reactor parts out of which the cross-shaped one is the most lucrative of the standard symbols, giving you 20 times your stake for 5 across a full payline. The ball-shaped electric cloud is the wild and substitutes for all symbols bar the Battery symbol and is worth 25x per payline.
Being a win-both-ways slot, winning combinations can start from either reel 1 or reel 5 and, as the symbols appear fully stacked on the reels, there is an ok 600x win potential on offer in the main game without the involvement of any features.
Reactor (Red Tiger Gaming) - Battery Re-spin Feature
Central to the game is the Battery re-spin feature. Above the reel set you'll see a 5-stage meter representing 5 reel enhancing features. The objective is to charge the meter by landing as many Battery symbols as possible. The more Battery symbols you land, the more features are combined in the subsequent re-spin.
For example, landing only 1 Battery symbol will award you a simple re-spin, but landing 5 of them, on the other hand, will give you a re-spin with all features activated that includes the Swap symbol feature, random wilds, mega wild, random multiplier of up to 10x and more!
Reactor (Red Tiger Gaming) - Conclusion
Reactor is an extremely volatile slot that is all about the Battery re-spin feature, which is also why the main game can get a bit tedious as essentially all potential is allocated to the re-spin feature. The reel enhancing extras on offer, however, can combine to dramatic effect with a max win potential of 5000 times your stake, so if you're a fan of high variance, you'll most likely enjoy this electrifying beast.
In writing, Reactor can come across as slightly complicated although it is not. In fact, it is a rather simple slot, and once you've triggered a couple of re-respins, you'll soon get the hang of what's going on.
