What is it with these professors? Slot games would really struggle for ideas if it wasn’t for these geniuses who seem to spend so much time in their laboratories it makes them go mad. Well, we have another one here in this entertaining slot from Novomatic.
Professors always seem to specialize in something of course. For some it’s invisibility or time travel but the one in this slot is obsessed with magnetism, hence the title ‘Reel Attraction’ Just like most celebrity marriages, opposites attract as our scientist knows only too well.
‘Reel Attraction’ is a five-reel game with three rows of symbols and a total of 20 paylines full of winning opportunities. Those 20 paylines aren’t a fixed amount so you need to decide how many of the paylines to activate for each spin of the reels and your stake. This gets as high as £500 so ideal for all you high rollers out there.
Symbols in the game really add to the quality of this slot with some entertaining pieces of animation. We get the attractive assistant (five of this on an active payline wins you 2000x your line stake), a microscope, a magnifying glass and some technical atom loop like the one at the start of ‘The Big Bang Theory’ (I was never much cop at Physics at school). There’s also the ten to Ace playing card symbols which have a colourful look but nothing to do with the theme of the game.
There are two wild symbols in this game, the first being the professor and this only appears on the first reel. The other is a magnet and when they both appear then the Professor wild expands to cover all of his reel. The versatile Professor moves the entire reel where the magnet wild has landed closer to him and this will get you a good win. It’ll be even better If there’s more than one of the magnet wilds on the screen. The wild can’t substitute for the orange liquid in a large test tube symbol which is the scatter in this game.
Before you start pumping real cash into the slot, have some free games. This will show you just how the wilds work with all that magnetism and the bonus game. Also make sure you have a look at the paytable which has lots of useful information about the rules and how much each winning combination pays.
If you can get three or more of the scatter symbols, then this gets you into the Free Spins round. You’re given a total of 20 free spins and there’s an enhanced Professor feature. He’ll be expanded throughout the free spins and this can really boost your account balance. It’s also possible to re-trigger the free spins but only once. As it’s the scatter that triggers the bonus game that means you don’t have to be activating too many paylines if you don’t want to.
The game has a Gamble feature but this is one that you really need to be careful with. When you get a win there’s the chance to gamble it and win some more cash. Just remember you don’t have to take the gamble on and if you want, you can just prepare yourself for the next spin knowing your account balance has just gone up. If you do accept the gamble, then it’s the usual game of guessing the colour of the next card to double your win. It’s not as easy as you might think and an easy way of losing good wins.
A really entertaining game from Novomatic. The theme isn’t the most unique one out there but it is adhered to really well. The magnetism idea is an attractive one and if someone came along and said they hated this game we’d be poles apart. The bonus game and the wilds can certainly get you some good wins.
