Wazdan Unveil New Choco Reels Pokie
Everyone loves a good sugary treat, which is something that iGaming developer Wazdan clearly knew. Their new pokie, Choco Reels, is a celebration of all things sugar based, from candy canes and squares of chocolate to the ultimate Choco Spins.
The title is certainly mouth-watering, though perhaps not the most graphically advanced game in recent months. A good amount of effort has gone into the candy themed symbols, but they won’t be described as ground-breaking.
In this case, it seems as though Wazdan were more concerned with interesting and unique gameplay, as opposed to next level visuals, and this approach has paid off.
A Wave Of Chocolate Wins
At its core Choco Reels is a standard 6-reel, 5 row pokie, backed by a decent 96.22% RTP. But a quick glance at the Ways to Win reveals that it was innovation that Wazdan were focusing on. There is a possibility of 46,656 Ways to Win, which is a number that speaks for itself. Each spin generates a dynamic Ways to Win pattern, sometimes higher, sometimes lower, but always dramatically above other pokies of this type.
An interesting feature is that Choco Reels combines classic spinning reels with Cascading Tiles. After each spin, should a matching combination occur, the winning symbols will disappear, allowing the symbols above to fall in and occupy the empty space. This creates room for chain winning combinations, should the player be lucky enough.
But those that really enjoy sweetness, as well as big payouts, will want to focus on the Free Spins feature.
The already mentioned chain combination win potential has a number of special features worked into it. The first is that for each chain win, additional reel spaces will be opened up. This is indicated by the squares of chocolate disappearing from the spaces around the edges of the grid.
Additionally, each time a chain win pays out, an icing syringe to the right of the screen will fill up 1 notch. So, the more chained payouts, the bigger the grid, and the higher the syringe climbs, which ultimately unlocks the Choco Spins bonus game.
Choco Spins is where Choco Reels really shines, providing some of the most potentially generous mechanics you’re likely to find in a pokie. First and foremost, 10 Free Spins are awarded, but this is just the beginning. More Free Spins can be collected over the course of the sequence, as well as multipliers, which are added to a counter on the right.
Tasty, payout rich, and exciting, Choco Reels is a good effort by Wazdan and it’s sure to be a hit with pokies players who have a sweet tooth.
