Playtech decided to kick it old school in Blazing Bells, a six-reel video slot that offers 46,656 ways to win, working on the allways pays system. In fact, the game just looks like a classic fruit machine. The truth is that the 2020 release is actually packed with additional features, thus proving the statement that players should not judge a book by its covers.
Playable from $0.10 per spin, the Blazing Reels video slot comes with Collapsing Reels, which remove all winning icons, making room for new ones to appear, increasing the unlimited win multiplier along the way. Thanks to the WaysPlus feature, special symbols will expand to cover 4 adjacent positions. Finally, the Free Games feature with unlimited win multiplier that does not reset.
Play Blazing Reels
Blazing Bells is a mutual project of Playtech and Ash Gaming. Judging by the look of the game, we can say that it is similar to classic fruit machines. Apart from 6 playing cards that act as low-paying symbols, there are four fruit icons that function as high-paying symbols, including Lemons, Oranges, Blueberries, and Raspberries, while the Bell is the highest-paying regular icon. The Star is the Scatter that triggers free spins, while the Diamond is the Wild that substitutes for all regular symbols.
How to Play
The 2020 release features six reels, six rows, and benefits from 46,656 ways to win. Land matching icons on at least three successive reels, beginning from the leftmost reel, and you will start winning payouts. The Bell is the only symbol that pays even for two of a kind.
Thanks to Collapsing Reels, all winning icons from the reel grid will be removed, making room for new ones to appear. The command list is located beneath the reels and offers all the usual options, including the Turbo Mode and Autoplay.
Strategy & Tips
The Collapsing Reels feature is connected to the unlimited win multiplier and every time you land a win, the win multiplier, which starts at 1x, goes up by 1x. After a non-winning spin in the base game, the multiplier resets to 1x.
The WaysPlus feature will offer special symbols that are marked, and you will recognize them every time. When on the reels, special symbols will expand horizontally and vertically to 4 adjacent positions if there is a possibility to land wins.
Land three, four, five, or six Scatters on the reels and you will trigger the Free Games feature with 6, 8, 12, or 20 free spins. During freebies, the win multiplier will not reset after a non-winning spin.
The 2020 release is playable across all devices. Thanks to crisp graphics and quality gameplay, the reels run as smoothly as possible both on desktops and handheld gadgets.
