Tropic Reels, a Playtech slot with a theme that looks perfect for someone waiting for his next holiday, offers you 15 reels with 5 paylines on them, an interesting combination for a slot machine. It’s a bit of a mix between something modern and classic, though to which category it belongs more you will have to decide yourself. The overall design is that of a slot machine, as you can see what’s going on behind it as well, with the theme being focused on tropical items and fruits, with an ancient stone idol thrown in. The list of features mentions only a wild symbol, but I believe the Hold buttons qualify as well.
Graphics & Theme
In Tropic Reels, the tropical theme is unmistakable. As soon as you take a look at the background photo, you can notice the colorful and interesting toucans, insects, tropical fruit, flowers, the jungle foliage at the top and even some stone made idols that are quite visible. They work together and form an image of a tropical location that has a bit of history behind it, good for the whole family since you can both sit on the beach and explore and learn a bit of history. The reels take a big chunk of the screen, 15 of them total, with 5 rows of 3 placed on the right side. The list of symbols has quite a few of them on it, but most of them come in three versions, so there isn’t as much diversity as you might think at first. The wild tiger tops the paytable list, followed by parrots colored in red, green and blue, after which we get fruits (yellow, green, orange), frogs (red, green, purple), flowers (red, yellow, blue) and a pineapple.
The majestic tiger, the one that many consider the true king of the jungle, is the only predator on the list of symbols from this game, so it’s only natural that it would take the role of a wild. It has the ability to substitute for other symbols, and if the player uses a maximum wager and gets a payline occupied by it, the payout is 2500x the line bet. It will pay less if the player uses only 1 or 2 coins.
The Hold buttons are the other interesting part about this slot. It gives the player the ability to keep symbols from the first set of reels for the second part of the round, so that the reels above them will be populated with the same symbols. It’s especially useful when you have wilds you can hold on to, or when you have multiple symbols of the same type.
You will find that Tropic Reels offers an experience that many slots can’t match, as it actually gives you something new. There are other games with a similar type of gameplay, but there aren’t that common.
