Reef Encounter is a fun reef themed slot developed by the game developer Genii. The slot was released in 2015 and have since built a small but devoted group of fans. Gennii gaming is most know for the slot 7 chakras but has also developed a long row of other moderately popular slot machines such as Zoodiac, Band Outta Hell, Vikingdoom, and Elementium.
This slot can sometimes be hard to find. Only a small percentage of all online casinos offer games from Genii and far from all casinos with games from Genii offer reef encounter. At the time I am writing this you can find the game in PlayFrank, Insta Casino, Fantasino, Masters Bet, vBet, Black lotus casino, and lucky creek casino.
The game is themed around popular reef fish. Among the symbols, you can find the clownfish (Nemo), the hippo tang (Dory), Sea horses, sea turtles, sea stars, and an octopus. The game also features numbers and letters as symbols.
The graphic is cartoony and feels inspired by the Finding Nemo movies. Especially the clownfish and the hippo tang are designed in a way that is very similar to how they look in the movies. The music and sound effects are also reefed themed and designed to boost the excitement you feel when you play. I, unfortunately, find that the music becomes annoying after a while. This is, however, not a problem since you can turn off the music and/or the sound effects. Doing so allow you to play any music you like while playing.
Reef encounters feature 3 lines and 5 wheels. There are 25 different pay lines.
According to our sources the RTP (return to player) for this game is 90%. If this is true then this is very low. We do not recommend that you play this game unless you are able to find information that indicates that this number is wrong (we hope it is). Playing this slot will if the RTP really is 90% cost you a lot of money quickly. You will lose your money 5-10 times faster than most other slots and the low RTP also make it very hard to leave the table a winner.
Reef Encounter is developed in Js and HTML5. It is therefore available for both mobile and desktop casinos. You can play this slot on all units that have a modern web browser. The games work on both PC and Mac.
The gameplay is fun and exciting. It is a happy slot to play. It offers a good balance between winning large and winning often. You do not win too often but when you do you often win big.
It is a very basic slot. There is no risk game and no bonus game. In many ways, it is a retro slot with modern graphics. This can be a very good thing if you like retro slots. It is not a good slot if you prefer more advanced slots with bonus features and advanced animations.
The game feature wilds, scatters, and free spins scatters.
The regular scatter is the sea turtle. The regular scatter allow you to win money. You win if you get at least 3 turtles anywhere on the screen. They do not need to be on the same pay line or in a row. The more sea turtles you get, the more money you win.
The free spin scatter is the octopus. The free spin scatter can be anywhere on the board just like the regular scatter. 3 octopus awards you 10 free spins. 5 octopus awards you 25 free spins.
The wild is the clownfish. This is also the most valuable symbol in the game. 5 clownfish in a row allow you to win the games biggest win 7500, the jackpot. The clownfish can as a wild replace any other symbol except for the scatters.
Reef encounters do not feature any progressive jackpot.
