The first thing that will charm you about Reel Rush is its unmistakable Super Mario-inspired theme with a splash of Candyland thrown in. The game’s interface can only be described as ‘clean’, with simple crisp graphics and not a single pixel in the way that shouldn’t be there.

However, the game doesn’t just rely on a lookalike gimmick to pull in players and keep them there. Reel Rush’s free spin feature is unique, as the paylines expand with each bonus round you earn, culminating in an unbelievable 3,125 ways to win if you can manage to get over five free spins in a row. While small ones, the game has its downsides but they definitely aren’t anything glaring enough to where we wouldn’t give Reel Rush anything but our strongest recommendation to more frugal Aussie pokie players.

Rating breakdown

This NetEnt creation is one of the more beautiful pokies we’ve seen in a while. Our Reel Rush online pokie reviewers all found the graphics to be simple and clean, just like the gameplay which some players might find a bit dull but many others will find to be exactly what they are looking for in an era of overly-complicated slots.

Detailed review


Jackpot & Bonus Games

Unfortunately if you were hoping for a fun Mario-inspired bonus game you will be a little disappointed, as the game lacks any sort of bonus game in general. However, any time you hit a combination of any kind in Reel Rush you are going to be awarded spins which is pretty unique compared to most pokies. You can even earn more free spins during those free games, and a winning combination after the fifth free spins gives you eight more bonus rounds.

With each re-spin the number of paylines increases, from 135 for your first re-spin (the base game has 45) to an incredible 3,125 after your fifth. Should you go the distance and unlock that many paylines, your total potential jackpot would then be 480,000 big ones.

Mobile play

Reel Rush is part of NetEnt’s mobile Touch line of apps, meaning the game’s mobile version is specifically optimized and design to be compatible with many different mobile smartphone and tablet apps.

When testing out the mobile version our Reel Rush review team loved:

  • An interface that is easy to use on mobile but keeps the spirit of the game
  • Same variety of betting options for small-screen players
  • Sharp sound even on tiny speakers
  • Paytable menu that is easy to navigate on smaller screens
  • No confusing bonus modes that complicate the rhythm of spin, win, spin, win

Why Reel Rush Is Worth Playing

Just like it’s inspiration from the simpler days of video games, Reel Rush honors that simplicity with this equally straightforward pokie. While you won’t win big (unless you manage to get the top jackpot) the team doing our review of Reel Rush made a long list of things we liked about the game and reasons we would recommend it to all Aussie pokie players.
