The Reel Splitter slots game can be found at Microgaming casinos. Microgaming as a standard now publish the slots house edge information of all their games at any online casino that holds a UKGC license (this is a requirement for all UKGC licensed casinos). As such we can say that the House Edge of Reel Splitter is 3.98%. When playing at any venue that does not hold a UKGC license and does not specifically publish the Return to Player information for their game, this information should be used as a guideline only as we cannot confirm whether or not this game is configurable.
Reel Splitter is a 4 reel game that is 3 symbols high. The does not use traditional paylines, instead you form wins when you land 3 or more of the same symbols across adjacent reels from left to right.
Wild – The Wild symbol will substitute for all symbols other than the Free Spins symbol and also come stacked.
Free Spins – If you can land 3 or 4 Free Spins symbols anywhere on the reels you will trigger the feature.
Valuable symbols – The “Reel-Splitter” symbol is the most valuable in the game. 3 as part of a winning payline will award you with 1.5 times the bet; 4 as part of a winning payline will award you with 5 times the bet and 5 as part of a winning payline will award you with 12 times the bet.
Free Spins – 3 Free Spins symbols will gain you 8 Free Spins and 4 will gain you 16 Free Spins. Free Spins are always played out across 5 reels with the 243 different win ways. During the Free Spins the middle reel always comes fully stacked and you win when you form combinations of 3 or more symbols across adjacent reels from left to right and from right to left.
Reel-Split Re-Spin – If you land 4 matching symbols across 4 adjacent reels you will trigger the Reel Spit Re-Spin feature. During the Re-Spin an additional reel will appear between reels 2 and 3. During the re-spin only the new reel will spin as the remaining reels are locked in place.
This game is very much a space filler for MicroGaming but as space fillers go it is a decent release. The symbols are all very generic and look quite similar to the symbols you will find on older MicroGaming offerings. Essentially, what sets this game apart is the additional reel that offers you a re-spin. Other than that, there’s not really much here for me to describe.
