Reel Banks: Our Verdict

Is Reel Banks the new go to Pragmatic Game? Not really.

As we’ve said before, their release schedule is rather hectic compared to others and they seemingly put quantity ahead of quality…,sometimes anyway. Reel Banks has all the makings of an entertaining slot, but none of the makings of a legendary slot.

The collect feature seems to be one of the more boring slot features, doesn’t it? It doesn’t quite evoke the same sense of excitement as Sticky Wilds, but it does have a few staple features that makes it worth a go, and decent win potential at 5,000x as a maximum win.

Enough is going on to make you feel excited when you get to the bonus round, but it’s not quite as noteworthy as others in the Pragmatic Catalogue.

It’s the sort of slot that you’ll try out if you see it in the ‘new’ section of your casino, but your impression of it will rest entirely on how it performs. Its visuals, theme and soundtrack doesn’t really give a lasting impression, but given the chance it can be decent.
