Phantasy Star Reels – SEGA Video Slot Review
Note: Since writing this review – SEGA’s online casino has closed.
SEGA Games rocks the online gambling industry with their new video slot release… Phantasy Star Reels!
Opening with outstanding music and animation, you can enjoy play on this 20-line, 5-reel video slot for as little as a penny per line up to $5 per line with a ten coin max bet per line.
Using some amazing graphics, this game features a wild symbol, scatter symbol and a bonus game as well.
The wild space station symbol substitutes for all other symbols of the game with the exception of the scatter and bonus symbols. It is the highest paying symbol of the game and will award you a generous 5,000 coins if five appear during play.
The scatter symbol is a space ship. This scatter pays you five times your bet when three appear anywhere on your screen!
SEGA’s “partner machine” symbol is found on reels one and five only and will trigger an exciting bonus round when the symbol appears on these two reels at the same time. Play begins as a space ship takes you away to another screen filled with “partner machines. Select a machine to collect free games and bonus multipliers. One symbol opens to reveal the word “Lucky” which automatically opens three more “partner machines” for you. But beware … if the Mission Instructor appears, you’ll only get one free spin and the bonus round ends.
During bonus play, the regular symbols change to other character symbols. During play you can win up to 27 free spins with an eight time multiplier. Also, you’re awarded five times your triggering bet for triggering the bonus game. Plus, should the bonus trigger during bonus play, you’re automatically awarded eight additional free spins!
Beginning with $50, I played this slot at a penny per line and ten coins per line for a total bet of $2.00 per spin. Within a total of 36 spins the scatter and bonus did not appear but the wild did complete a total of seven winning combinations for me.
Depositing another $50, I decreased my bet to $1.00 per spin. Playing a total of 104 games this time, the wild symbol completed 28 winning combinations for me, the scatter paid me five times my bet four times and the bonus game triggered once for me awarding me $10.50 for my win of that play.
Now ahead, I; once again; increased my bet to $2.00 per spin. This time, within a total of 44 spins, the wild symbol completed twelve winning combinations for me, the scatter paid me five times my bet twice and the bonus game also triggered twice awarding me $83 on the first bonus game played and $94 on the second. Ahead by a total of $83 I ended play.
Amazing! Amazing! Amazing! I totally enjoyed everything about this slot. It definitely kept my interest (I would’ve continued play on it but I had to move on to review the other Sega Games slots!). The graphics are amazing, the animation and sound equally amazing and I really was shocked by the number of times the wild symbol completed winning combinations for me. And, to have the scatter pay five times my triggering bet… well, that was just wonderful!
SEGA … Welcome to online gambling! I’m certain this slot will be enjoyed by other players as it was for me! Definitely a slot everyone should try!
