About This Slot
Reactoonz 2 is an impressive game packed with fun features and taking inspiration from the original version of the slot. It keeps the same Cluster Pays system, and the cute monsters have also come along for the ride.
The game set up is in a grid format, with 7×7 reels and rewards of up to 3 000x the stake for each round you play. There are plenty of features to keep you entertained and winning, including wilds and multipliers that help boost payouts.
When it comes to the theme, expect the same experience as the original Reactoonz, with adorable monsters and bright colours galore. Throw in some fun background music and effects, and you’ve got a great game that really entertains. The design quality is of a high standard as well, as you would expect from Play n Go.
Game Set Up, Symbols and Graphics
As expected, the game looks familiar as it features the same theme and design elements as the original.
The dark blue, spacey background setting may seem relatively plain, but dynamic and electrical sound effects and some cute symbols add some charm to proceedings. The slot retains its 7×7 format, but there are some changes worth noting. Instead of just one, there are now two metre/charge areas that come alive whenever a cluster win is earned.
The space theme and extra-terrestrial appearances on the reels give the game a playful yet mesmerising effect. The setting is a parallel universe where colourful and bright monsters and rewarding symbols abound. Some characters that pop up include 4 small Reactoonz and 4 larger ones, with the highest paying symbol being the pink Reactoonz character. Land 15 or more of these in a cluster and receive 500x your total bet.
The Gargantoon symbol is the wild and replaces all other symbols to help form winning combinations. What’s more, this version of the game introduces two additional wilds, namely the Electric Wild and the Energoon wild, which will be detailed below.
RTP, Variance and Payouts
Winning combinations in this game are formed when you land five or more symbols in clusters, which means they need to land adjacent to one another.
The bigger the cluster, i.e., the more matching symbols to land, the bigger the payout. The paytable starts at 20p and goes up to $100 per spin, which gives players a nice wide betting range to work with.
The game’s RTP is 96.2%, which is above average for a slot game and one of the most common RTP numbers for a Play’n GO game. The slot game is medium to high variance, and the maximum winning potential is 3,000x your stake per spin.
Gameplay and Features
When it comes to gameplay and features, it can initially seem a bit complicated, but once you have the hang of it, everything is a breeze, not to mention packed with fun opportunities to win.
The Reactoonz 2 slot comes with four bonus features, which we will highlight below.
The cascade feature is the key to unlocking the rest of the bonus features. Every time a winning cluster is formed, it will be removed in many ways for new symbols and potential winning opportunities. The Cascades will continue to pop and fill metres until there are no more new symbols.
Electric Wilds, Energoon Wilds, Gargantoon Wilds and Fluctometer
On each spin, a one-eyed symbol is chosen at random to fluctuate. If this symbol ends up landing a win, an electric wild will appear and fill up the Fluctometer. Once the Fluctometer is entirely full, between one and three additional electric wilds appear on the grid. Again, the Fluctometer can start filling up but will be disabled if the Gargantoon wild symbol is released.
The electric wild symbols replace any other symbol on the reels while zapping Reactoonz as well. If any non-wild symbols are zapped by the electric wild, the Quantumeter will be charged, with each symbol being worth one charge. The Quantumeter will continue to charge once the Energoon is released, but will be disabled if a Gargantoon symbol is released. Players will need to collect a certain number of charges to reach different levels of the game – 55, 85, 110 and 135 charges to reach level 1, 2, 3 and 4 respectively. When you reach a different level, a wild will be released as follows:
- Level 1 – Four 1×1 Engeroon wilds
- Level 2 – Single 2×2 Energoon wild
- Level 3 – Single 3×3 Gargantoon wild
- Level 4 – x2 multiplier for all wins including Gargantoon wilds
Once the 3×3 Gargantoon wild activates a cascade, it breaks into two 2×2 Gargantoon wilds. After triggering another cascade, it is replaced by nine 1×1 Gargantoon wilds.
Finally, once all features are done, if an additional two or more electric wilds, the Wild Pair Explosion feature will be triggered. If two electric wilds appear adjacent, all other symbols, except for the wilds, are taken off from the grid. If the wilds do not appear adjacent to each other, the symbols between two of them and the surrounding symbols are destroyed, excluding any wild symbols. Destroyed symbols do not payout but, instead, charge the Quantumeter.
Reactoonz 2 is definitely a step in the right direction for a game that was much-loved by players and critics alike.
The slot game will be a great option for grid slots enthusiasts, while the additional features may take some getting used to, but ultimately adds to the fun and rewards of your gaming experience. Play’n GO is a top software provider that really knows how to captivate an audience, and this new slot game is just proof of that.
If you’re looking for compelling gameplay with plenty of opportunities to win, or if you are a fan of the original, we recommend giving this exciting new addition to Play‘n GO’s line-up a go.
