Mystery Reels Power Reels - Theme and Background

One glance at the Mystery Reels Power Reels grid and you’ll immediately know that you aren’t about to be blown away by immense design creativity. This slot embraces the original fruit machine theme, which I know is still very popular with slot purists. Where it does differ is in the reel layout, that encompasses Red Tiger Gaming’s signature Power Reels enhancement. For those who are new to the feature, this just means a larger grid set across 7 reels.

In theory, this increased canvas is meant to boost the player’s chances at multiple winning combinations, but we’ll get into the truth of that further below. The symbols across the reels are cherries, oranges, lemons, watermelons, bells and plums. There’s also a jackpot symbol, a golden apple mystery symbol and a glittering diamond standing in as the Wild. The soundtrack is probably more suited to an after hours party rather than a video slot, but maybe I’m just showing my age. The backdrop is a clean and simple dark green and blue gradient that forces you to place all your focus on the grid. The symbols are digitized for the added effect of spinning an actual fruit machine, but beyond that the graphics leave a little to be desired.

Mystery Reels Power Reels - Gameplay

As far as special features go, Mystery Reels Power Reels aren’t pushing the boundaries. But a slot doesn’t have to be equipped with fancily animated features to make it rewarding. Below I’ve described every player’s 2 best shots at making serious bank with this slot.

Mystery Reels Power Reels mystery symbol

Mystery Symbol

The Mystery Symbol comes in the form of a golden apple, and you would do well do get exited each time it appears because it almost always means a tidy sum to boost your balance. There are 2 ways to trigger the feature. Either at random during any spin, or when you land the symbols on the reels. This combination means it gets triggered quite frequently, which I was pleasantly surprised by.

Up to 3 Mystery Symbols can appear on a single spin, and when these combine, the really big wins become possible. Each mystery symbol comes with the possibility of being cloned 1, 2 or 3 times, spreading across adjacent tiles. Once it has spread, a random symbol will be selected and all the tiles covered will become that symbol. Depending on how many mystery symbols you land and what symbol is selected, you’re in with a chance for the game’s top win each time.

Progressive Jackpots

The slot allows players to be in with a shot at 2 progressive jackpots; the Super Drop and the Daily Drop. These jackpots aren’t exclusive to Mystery Reels Power Reels, so while this means that the value of the prize will increase faster, it also means the competition pool is larger.

How does it work? Each time a player bets, a percentage of that bet is added to the jackpot prize. To win one of them you’ll need to land 3 jackpot symbols anywhere on the reels in a single spin. The game will then randomly award one of the two jackpots

Mystery Reels Power Reels - Payouts and Wagering Limits

The lack of card suits and Royals means that the low paying symbols aren’t immediately obvious with this slot. But they do exist, and in this case they’re the cherries, lemons, oranges, plums, grapes and melons, awarding 2 x to 15 x your stake for seven of a kind. Sitting firmly in mid-range are the gold bells, offering 25 x your bet for 7 of a kind. The blazing 7s pull in the highest value with 50 x your bet for a set of 7.

But the real pay out treat comes with the glittery diamond Wilds, which will award players a spectacular 175 x the stake if you can land 7 on a winning payline. The slot’s top win of 5,250 x your bet can be unlocked if you get really lucky with the Mystery Symbol feature, which offers you the opportunity to fill the grid with a single symbol and take home a top prize of C$105,000 if you’re playing at the maximum bet of 20.00.

Final Verdict

Mystery Reels Power Reels


The style of the slot is geared toward fast play. Perhaps this is the reason why they’ve done without any bonus games which interrupt the regular flow. Now, I know a lot of people, myself included find these game interludes to be a welcome break from the occasional monotony. So this could be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on your perspective.

Considering the simplicity of the slot, I found it to be extremely entertaining, not to mention rewarding. For a high volatility slot, payouts were frequent and sizable, entirely thanks to the regularly landing Mystery Symbol. I don’t think the additional reels actually add much to the game as it’s still limited to 30 paylines, so I wouldn’t put too much stock in the Power Reels hype.
