How To Play

If you’ve played more than one or two online slots games in the past, you’re not likely to find many surprises in Highland Reels’ gameplay. You won’t find many innovative slots gameplay mechanics in Highland Reels either, just classic slots action for fans of the traditional style. The controls are simple and minimalist, with three buttons along the bottom of the screen allowing you to select your bet, spin the reels, or set an autoplay of up to one hundred spins. You can select from one to 25 paylines and set your bet amount per line. Once the game’s five reels are rolling, it’s simply a matter of matching symbols from left to right along the 25 paylines. Landing two or more scatter symbols in any order gets a payout, and three or more triggers a bonus feature.


Highland Reels uses a mixture of Highland games inspired symbols and the more traditional playing card symbols to populate its reels. First and foremost is the iconic Scottish Kilt symbol. Matching the five traditional tartan patterns across the game’s five reels will release Highland Reels’ highest payout of x3,000 your stake. Just behind the Kilt symbols are the Caber and Stone Put symbols, five of which will earn you x1,000 and x500 your stake, respectively. Highland Reels also features two types of scatter symbol – the Scotsman symbol and the hammer symbol. These unlock the Hammer Throw and Caber Toss bonus features, where you can win free games and prize multipliers. Finally, the trophy symbol is wild and can substitute for any other symbol except Scatters.

Highland Reels’ colourful symbols capture the theme well and, in an industry where Irish themed slots like the classic Rainbow Riches are commonplace, it’s a refreshing change of pace to see a game that takes inspiration from Scottish traditions instead.


Highland Reels features two bonus games where you can win free spins and payouts of up to x100 your wager.

Bonus Name Bonus Explanation
Hammer Throw

Landing three or more hammer symbols across the reels triggers the Hammer Throw game. In this game, you select targets to throw the hammer at and reveal multipliers. Revealing two matching multipliers earns you a payout of the revealed amount, multiplied by your total stake.

Caber Toss

The Caber Toss game is triggered when you land two or more Scotsman symbols. In this game, you toss the caber at targets to reveal prizes – either multiples of your stake or up to ten free spins. You get to toss the caber once for each Scotsman symbol you landed when you triggered the feature.
