The game features 12 symbols in total, this includes the scatters, standard symbols as well as the jackpot. One of the downfalls you will notice almost instantly is that wild symbols do not appear to complete combinations as regularly as one might like. However, with 4 scatters you might find the rewards are made up for with bonus winnings. The rest of the game theme, such as the background doesn’t explain any additional information about the storyline and what happens next, instead, the games developer has left the frame black with a golden trim and the reels with plain blue lines. The symbols offer characters in full sizes symbols with flashing lights and animations and this definitely gives you the idea that all your focus should be on the reels anyway.
As the Reels Turn includes within it 2 bonus features that can be triggered when 3 of either round bonus symbols or the Tommy W. symbols appear. Both the bonus features offer random reward amounts that could add up to quite a hefty prize. The other scatters include the “advance to next scene” and the Ivan the fish symbol. Advancing to the next scene will tell you more about the story and about what’s happening with the characters.
The Ivan symbol will trigger the free spins where 10 free games and a 3x multiplier will come your way. All the various scatters will reward 50 coins when 5 appear, except for the next scene symbols which will not reward anything but the next interesting sequence.
The game is definitely an interesting one with the storyline that is included. Personally, it makes it seem like more than just a video slot as you know the characters and what’s happening, almost like playing a branded slot featuring one of your all-time favorite movies. As mentioned, the only downfall is the background and frame design as well as the fact that wilds are not included.
