Microgaming has proudly released yet another new pokie, this time revamping its take on the classic fruit machine experience. Reel Splitter is the name of the new title, which was developed exclusively for Microgaming casinos by independent partner studio Just for the Win (JFTW).

Reel Splitter is inspired by the retro glamour and glitz of Las Vegas, pairing this vibe with modern features and compatibility for the best of both worlds. The new 4-reel, 81 ways to win game also boasts a variety of lucrative features for its players, including wild symbols, free spins, and its innovative reel split respins.

Vintage Glam Meets Modernism

Bringing the buzz and atmosphere of old-school Vegas casinos to players’ PCs and smartphones, Reel Splitter’s classic pokies design has been revived with an assortment of colourful, funky symbols. Alongside a selection of juicy fruit icons to provide winning potential, players can also expect a smooth, 50s-inspired soundtrack to set the mood.

Land a winning combo of just 4 or more matching symbols and you might trigger the reel split respin feature, allowing a fifth reel to appear between the second and third reels and spin in a whole new set of icons. This will also boost the pokies ways to win to 243 in total, while the reels will lock in place, creating the potential to match multiple consecutive prizes.

Then, in the sensational free spins round, players can expect yet another game changing twist as the reels expand to 5 reels and 243 ways in total. Landing just 3 or 4 free spins symbols anywhere in view during the base game will award 8 or 16 free spins, giving players a chance to rake in huge cash jackpots in a bonus round that pays both ways. There is even a locked stacked wild on the centre reel to boost your chances of winning big!

Reel Splitter officially launched at Microgaming’s partner casinos on Wednesday, May 15, and is now available for real money play.

Spokesmen Comment on New Pokie

Commenting on the exciting release, Microgaming Head of Games Jagoda Barber has noted that the classic pokies experience has been updated here with sleek visuals and cutting edge mechanics from Just for the Win. Reel Splitter, he says, is colourful and traditional at first glance, but boasts some truly contemporary features to balance it out. He added that the pokie is suitable for players of all levels, including those who want to experience the timeless vintage gambling experience complete with some thrilling new twists.

JFTW CEO Johan Persson also shared his thoughts, saying that his company is thrilled to bring the dazzling atmosphere of vintage Vegas to modern players in Reel Splitter. He noted that his team had plenty of fun developing the new title, and cannot wait for players to experience it through the device of their choice.
