Appearance and Sound Effects

NetEnt has always produced slot games across a wide array of themes and the underworld criminal theme on Reel Steel is a nice addition to their collection.  Being a slot based on pulling off the perfect heist, the criminal underworld provides a good background for the reels to sit upon.  On the reels, you have numerous theme-related symbols. 

The first is our mob boss himself, along with his two associates Nate and Sam. It also couldn't be a criminal story without the gorgeous temptress lady symbol – she is the second highest paying symbol in the game.  Other symbols you will see include a gun, a safe, jewels and a bag of money, all fitting the theme well. 

Bonuses and Special Features

Unfortunately, for fans of complicated slot games which have lots of bonus features, you won't find anything like that on Reel Steel.  Despite that, the game can be pretty rewarding, and there are some bonuses that help it to be so. 

The first bonus symbol is the wild symbol, which on this game is an orange getaway car.  If you land this symbol, it will substitute for all other symbols on the reels to create winning combinations.  The wins that the wild helps to create will have a 5x multiplier applied to them. 

The second special symbol is the stick of dynamite symbol, which is also the scatter symbol.  This symbol is the only symbol which can trigger the games only bonus feature, the free spins bonus.  To activate the free spins, you must land three, four or five of the stick of dynamite in a single spin. 

Once triggered you will be awarded your free spins.  If you land three scatter symbols, you will be given 15 free spins.  For four dynamite scatter symbols it would be 20 free spins.  If you land the full collection of five scatter dynamites in a single spin, you will be given 25 free spins.  During the free spins, a 5x multiplier is applied to any wins, and wins with the wild involved can be multiplied by up to 25x.
