The soap-opera casino returns in As the Reels Turn 2: The Gamble. Rival Gaming has revived this popular slot with even more characters, mobsters, and adventure. Set at the El Paradiso Casino, casino manager Matt is about to lose his headline act Tommy Wong to his nemesis The Don. However, Matt has some leverage on Tommy that might convince him to stay, which is where we enter As the Reels Turn 2. Furthermore, there are three new characters joining the drama – Danny, Jamie, and Vanessa.
Rival Gaming’s As the Reels Turn 2: The Gamble features five reels and 15 paylines. US players are promised an immersive gaming experience as this slot title is part of Rival’s i-Slot range. The slot has a progressive jackpot, and it’s very cheap to play – the minimum bet amount is at 0.01 coins per spin. On the other hand, high rollers can spend up to 75 coins per spin.
In terms of the game’s symbols, they’re mostly similar to the first As the Reels Turn, including the wine and lobster buffet, a letter marked as ‘confidential’, and all the characters that play a role in the story.
The El Paradiso logo symbol is the most valuable one in the game. Additionally, there are four scatter symbols that trigger their own unique bonus games. These include a bonus chip, ‘advance next scene’, Danny, and Ivan. Let’s take a look at what you can expect from each game:
Bonus chip: land three or more of these, and you’ll be taken to a game where you’ll need to help Matt G. find some fake chips.
Advance to Next Scene: land three or more of these symbols, and you’ll trigger cut scenes that have their own game where you’ll either have to pick Val in the mugshots or a reel of fortune that scores players prizes.
Danny: getting three or more on the reels and you’ll be taken to a game where you’ll have to pick which one of Danny’s acts are the most popular.
Ivan: get three or more Ivan the fish symbols, and you’ll get 10 free spins that have 3x multipliers on them.
Furthermore, the more you eat at the buffet, the more coins you score, winning up to 100 coins. Additionally, you can get up to 300 coins for meeting Jamie, Rex the floor manager, and Vanessa.
