Reef Run Introduction
Coral reefs are possibly one of the most beautiful things existing in nature, and are home to countless species of fish, crustacea, multitudes of microscopic organisms and all manner of other types of sea life. In this aquatic-themed pokie, Reef Run, from Yggdrasil Gaming, you will be taking a trip deep under the water to a coral city in search of big prizes.
Along the way you will encounter a whole host of (mostly) friendly-looking sea creatures who will award you with said prizes in return for winning matches. This game is available to play on both browsers and mobile or tablet devices, making it ideal for both home gaming and when out and about.
Under the Sea
As previously mentioned, Reef Run is set underwater (like another free pokies game we have on site), against the backdrop of a vast coral city. The graphical style is modern and the design of the symbols in particular is of a high standard. It's also worth commenting on the soundtrack, which is perfectly suited to this type of game and is actually quite soothing, unlike the rather less relaxing sound tracks on other competing pokies.
There is also a fairly wide range of options for custom settings, something of a rarity for games such as these. They include the ability to configure audio and gameplay settings. This a five reel pokie with a maximum of 20 possible paylines for you to win on, and prizes are awarded for three, four and five-of-a-kind matches.
Reef Run Symbols
The symbols are a collection of anthropomorphic sea creatures, who all look very friendly with one notable exception. There are also free spin symbols which will unlock the free spins round, wherein you can also potentially unlock character-specific multipliers. The unfriendly looking pufferfish is the most valuable symbol in this game, and if you find five of him in a winning configuration, the game will award you with a maximum prize of 1000 coins.
Next on the prize table is the crab with a moustache which is worth a maximum prize of 500 coins. At the other end of the table are the sea snail and seahorse symbols, which offer top prizes of 100 and 75 coins respectively. These lower value prizes can soon add up, thanks to a high number of opportunities for you to win as well as the chance to earn free spins and some potentially massive multipliers.
Finding two free spins symbols will award you with two free spins, but matches of three, four and five symbols yield bigger and bigger bonuses, up to an impressive total of 60 free spins. During the free spins mode, you will still be able to accrue further free spins, albeit a limited number with a maximum of two available per spin.
The free spins mode also includes a character-specific multiplier that, when successfully activated, will last until the end of the round. This function can be triggered by achieving a win with any symbol, which will cause it to 'level up', multiplying subsequent wins with that symbol for the duration of the round. The multiplier starts at x 1 but can increase to up to 20 x.
