Your first glance at Reactoonz’s galactic visuals demonstrates the improvement Play’n GO has made to its earlier slot. The high-quality graphics and interstellar soundtrack make you feel as though you’re right on board a spaceship (although we did eventually reach for the mute button – there is only so much alien warbling we could take). Aliens with two eyes make up the high-paying symbols, while low-paying symbols have only one.
The game itself consists of a 7x7 grid where any cluster of five or more aliens is the equivalent of a winning payline. The cluster will then pay out and disappear from the reels, making room for more aliens to drop. We love the unique approach Reactoonz takes, swapping out traditional, tried-and-tested slot paylines for a distinctive alternative.
As the clusters disappear, more aliens will drop and potentially trigger another winning group. Thanks to the cascading matrix, one single win can trigger a chain of events and result in a sizeable payout. Four or more of the same symbol will automatically turn into a multiplier Giantoon. Then, if you manage to match a Giantoon, it will double the win.
With some slots, it can feel like you’re speeding through unsuccessful spins much faster than you’re generating winning ones. But with Reactoonz, multiple in-game features prolong your spins and make it feel as though you’re really getting your money’s worth. Every win in a single spin will contribute towards filling up the Quantum Leap bonus bar. You can then trigger one of several bonus Quantum features when the bar fills up. These features include:
Demolition: Clears all one-eyed and matching symbols.
Implosion: Destroys all adjacent symbols and turns up to six symbols into expanding wilds.
Incision: Creates two intersecting wild diagonals across the grid.
Alteration: Selects a one-eyed symbol and turns all corresponding aliens into new symbols.
You can have up to four Quantum features ready to be triggered when the grid runs out of winning clusters. If the Quantum Leap fills up completely, it will activate the Gargantoon, which will divide and conquer the aliens across the board. It first appears as one giant alien, squashing its first cluster. If no more winning groups appear, the Gargantoon divides in two several times. This alien mitosis results from a chain of winning events, so although you won’t see it happen too often, the rewards can be gargantuan (if you’ll excuse the pun).
Reactoonz has a high RTP (Return to Player) of 96.51%, but it is also a high variance slot. Therefore, you risk experiencing a chain of losses before achieving a substantial win. Though the cascading reels mechanism means you can win from anywhere on the grid, it also means that the aliens must fall in an adjacent pattern to pay out. For this reason, the Quantum Leap features are your best bet at a significant return on your wagers. With stakes from as low as $0.20 and with a little patience, you could cascade your way to a substantial prize.
Ultimately, Reactoonz is an entertaining slot with great payout opportunities. Not only do the visuals and soundtrack create a fully immersive experience, but they just go to show how much work Play’n GO puts into developing and improving its existing slots.
Reactoonz is suitable for any casino player with its low minimum and high maximum bet range. The generous RTP and high variance also mean that the gameplay is exciting and unexpected. There are also multiple bonus features to help boost your bankroll. So, put on your lab coat and get ready to Quantum Leap into the Reactoonz universe!
