Golden Reel is a progressive slots jackpot that used to be available exclusively at Quasar Gaming. We tracked this jackpot starting from February 2018.
This jackpot is no longer available to be won.
The Golden Reel video slot is the stuff of nightmares for me. The game looks and feels exactly like 95% of the other Novomatic slots that can be played at Quasar Gaming. You'll find the same slew of fruit symbols, a jester, and lame backgrounds that makes it feel like a relic from the late 90s. If there is a positive here though, it is the fact that there is the Golden Reel Jackpot present, which offers a large cash prize should you hit the winning combination.
The Golden Reel Jackpot is a progressive prize that grows with every spin of the reels. The jackpot sees a portion of every non-jackpot winning spin that is placed on the game. This prize continues to grow until the winning factor is set off, where it then drops and has a drop down to a seed amount.
In the case of the Golden Reel Jackpot, the prize is won when players are able to completely fill the reels with the wild jester symbols in the game. This seems simple, but it's incredibly difficult. In fact, as of the publication of this write-up, we've been unable to pick up any wins on this prize, and it seems like one that will be rare to be hit.
The jackpot is perhaps the only upside to playing this slot, though. The game looks lame, lacks any real compelling features of any sort (wilds, scatters, and free spins are included), and there are just so many different games that you could play that are better. Still, Novomatic is a world-renowned brand, which carries some weight to it. Thus, the games will have some fans to it, and there's something to be said about that. If you're one of those fans, then this game is one that you should spin the reels with.
