Slot Game of the Week

What slot game should you be spinning this week? There’s only one answer; it’s NetEnt’s Reef Raider Slot. This game is an instant hit with players due to its generous math model and amazing artwork. Let’s dive in and take a look.

Reef Raider Slot. NetEnt, RTP: 96.02%

Reef Raider is a 7x7 cluster pay slot with cascading reels and downright stunning graphics. If you know your slot mechanics, you’ll already know the aim of the game here is to make the biggest clusters of symbols for payouts.

When you make a winning line, all winning symbols are removed, allowing new symbols to fall into the empty spots and give you a second chance at winning. Clusters can be built from 5-49 symbols, and there are multipliers, mystery, special and wild symbols on the reels too.

The main game bonus symbols correspond to four random bonuses that’ll light up the reels with extra features, including symbol swaps, extra wilds, mystery treasure features. There’s also a free spins round (which you’ll trigger by collecting symbols and charging the Treasure Trail meter), multipliers up to x50, and two wild symbols available! 

Play this action-packed underwater slot from $0.20-100, and you may see yourself winning the max payout of 8,500x your bet! Take it for a spin at these NetEnt Casinos.
