Talent shows are major parts of life now. That’s a fact. Britain’s Got Talent, The X Factor, The Voice – those are just some of the talent shows here in the UK. Times that by a couple of hundred (and probably more) for all the other shows around the world. They even make it into the premise for film, Sing, an animated film essentially about a talent show. So of course, how can we not have an online slot based on such a premise? Microgaming and Just For The Win team up again to give us the best talent show of them all – Reel Talent Slot, a five reel, 20 payline game that hails from the partnership between Microgaming and Just For The Win.

Gameplay

Reel Talent is an online slot that puts an interesting spin (aha) on the talent show. Microgaming and Just For The Win team up to introduce us to a range of animal performers. We take front seat at an auditorium and then the show begins. The symbols include Playing Cards, Guitars, Torches and Microphones. But the high paying symbols are represented by the performers, including the Rabbit Magician, Crocodile Firebreather, Lion Singer and Wolf Guitarist. Roarsome.

The Lion is the star of the show, giving us 15 times our stake when he appears five times across a payline, while the top-paying Reel Talent logo gives us 50 times our stake for five on a payline. When we land these winning combinations, the sound of coins entering our account kicks in, the house lights get brighter and, all of a sudden, we’re the ones who are the stars of the show.

Bonuses

Reel Talent Slot benefits from a Symbol Storage feature which comes into play during any win. Every winning symbol is stored in one of three sections on the left of the reel case. This has to be done consecutively, otherwise the symbol disappears. But when we do get three symbols lined up, we trigger the Superspin feature. This all depends on the symbols that we’ve got. For example, if we’ve got three different winning symbols (for instance, Cards, Lion and Croc) then we enter the Showtime Superspin level. Two different symbols take us to the Big Stage Superspin level and when it’s only one symbol we go to the Solo Performance Superspin level. Each of these give us the chance to see more performances on screen and more prizes to boot, especially with the Solo Performance Superspin which can give us 605.25 times our stake. Showmanship!

Summary

Reel Talent Slot is a game that lives up to its name. Not only by giving us talented performers who demonstrate their skills (have you ever seen a wolf play guitar?) but the Symbol Storage feature adds more excitement and anticipation as we play towards the bonus spin rounds. It’s fun, it’s generous and we’ll even go so far as to say it’s reely good. Aha.
