Reels of Wealth from Betsoft Gaming: Slot Review - a vault worth cracking!
Do you love gold, sapphires, diamonds, and as much money as you can handle? Then you need to check out this new release from acclaimed games provider Betsoft Gaming. This game invites players to step inside a huge vault so that you can take a peek at the vast riches contained inside. Who knows if the reels are kind enough to you then you might just hit the jackpot to empty this vault and leave with a massive fortune in your hands!
Reels of Wealth is a 5 reel slot with 10 paylines that includes Repins, Rolling Wins, Free Spins, a Double Up mode, and a MegaStar Jackpot bonus game.
The first feature that I came across while playing this game is the Wild symbol. This symbol is represented by the words “Wild Multiplier” displayed in gold and blue font. Similar to most Wild symbols, the main job of this symbol is to substitute for all other symbols to help form winning combos. It only appears on reels 2 and 4 and does not substitute for the Megastar or Scatter symbols. A neat feature of this symbol is that when it is part of winning combination then your payout is nicely doubled. The more Wilds appearing in a winning payline then the bigger the payout. For example, 2 Wilds in a winning payline will quadruple your payout!
Whenever you land a win on the reels, you will be given a free Respin. This is known as the Rolling Wins feature. After landing a certain number of Respins in a row, wins are then multiplied. For instance, 5 to 7 Respins adds a 2X multiplier whereas 8 or more Respins adds a fantastic 3X multiplier to your win.
The Scatter symbol in this game is illustrated by an image of the Vault door. Land just one of these symbols on the reels and you will receive a payout and also a free Respin thanks to the Rolling Wins feature. Manage to fill the reels with 15 Scatters then you’ll be laughing all the way to the bank with a payout worth a whopping 2,000X your initial bet!
Land 3 or more MegaStar Jackpot symbols on the reels to trigger the MegaStar Jackpot bonus game. In this excellent feature, you will be awarded a set number of Free Spins depending on how many MegaStar Jackpot symbols you landed to activate it. 3, 4, 5 MegaStar Jackpot symbols award 10, 15, and 25 Free Spins respectively. Players are also given the chance to win one of 4 different progressive jackpots where you need to collect special jackpot symbols which explode on the reels to allow new symbols fall into place. Each jackpot has its own trail and each jackpot symbol only advances the trail for the jackpot it represents. The 4 jackpots vary in size from Hero all the way up to MegaStar. The MegaStar Jackpot is of course the biggest jackpot on offer and requires a trail length of 9 jackpot symbols in order to win it.
The last feature to highlight is the optional Double Up mode which is activated whenever you form a win on the reels. In this exciting but slightly risky mini-game, players can bet half or all of their winnings on the flip of a coin by choosing heads or tails. Guess correctly and your winnings will be doubled but choose wisely as if you guess wrong then you will lose all your current winnings and be taken back to the main game with nothing to show for it!
Theme, Graphics and Sound
The presentation of the game is superb as it takes place inside a purple-lit vault stocked with a vast assortment of riches such as coins, colourful gems, cash, and gold bars. It’s easy to see why the reels in this slot are considered to be made of wealth as the game title suggests! Symbols consist of a variety of riches such as Bags of Gems, Treasure Chests, Sapphires, Rubies, Diamonds, Gold Bars, as well as your typical A- J icons. The animations are a real visual treat as symbols are highlighted by a yellow sparkle-like effect and shine brightly when part of a winning combination on the reels.
Reels of Wealth features an upbeat jazz-style soundtrack. It ties in really well with the fast-paced nature of the game.

Our Verdict on Reels of Wealth
This games is made by Betsoft Gaming and is a highly enjoyable gaming experience. It features outstanding graphics, a catchy soundtrack, and a whole load of bonus features to keep players inside the vault for a long time to come! I was able to trigger the Rolling Wins feature quite frequently while playing and once a few Scatters started popping up on the reels then the payouts were greatly increased thanks to a handy 3X multiplier. The MegaStar Jackpot bonus game on the other hand took quite some time to trigger but your patience definitely pays off in the end with lots of Free Spins as well as offering the chance to win one of 4 lucrative jackpot prizes. I found this slot to be Medium to High in terms of variance as it offers much higher than average sized cash prizes when compared to other games.
