Reactoonz Review

Reactoonz is a fun cartoonish video slot by Play ‘N Go. It’s played on a 7×7 grid, using the ‘cluster’ payout system rather than regular fixed paylines. It’s the sequel to the highly popular ‘Energoonz’ slot, featuring cascading reels, 3D animations, cutesy graphics, and tons of special features. Reactoonz is far from a traditional slot – so be prepared for something really out of the ordinary.

How to Play

Like most video slots, you have to first select your bets before you can begin the game: the minimum bet is 20p and the maximum is £100. On the 7×7 grid you’ll see lots of different wide eyed, multi-coloured, cute little aliens, and the aim is to land at least 5 matching symbols in a ‘cluster’ – i.e. next to each other, either horizontally or vertically. The highest paying is the pink, two-eyed alien, which pays out 1200x if you land 15 in a single cluster. However, the super high payouts are earned via the game’s special features which will be explained below.

Important symbols in Reactoonz:

  • Wild: Gargantoon
  • Scatter: Na
  • High value symbols: Pink, green, and orange aliens.

Jackpots

Don’t be fooled into thinking that Reactoonz is a slot with meek offerings. Despite its cartoonish and cutesy vibe, with Reactoonz you can up to 4,570x your stake with each spin! Admittedly, Reactoonz is not a progressive jackpot slot but the bonus mini-games with its cash prizes and multipliers can mean you walk away with very full pockets. Although, it is a fairly volatile slot so don’t expect constant wins. The RTP currently stands at 96%.

 

Special Features and Bonuses

Reactoonz is set in a playful parallel universe where each win charges up immense prizes and amazing bonus features. Each time you win you’ll transfer energy into the meter at the right of the screen. There are five separate energy meters and once one of them is filled, one of the following special features will be activated.

  • Implosion feature: Anywhere between 3 to 6 symbols will suddenly become wild, adjacent symbols will implode, and plenty of winning combinations will be formed.
  • Alteration feature: One of the lower value symbols will be randomly selected and morph into a different one. For example, all the one-eyed yellow aliens (which is the lowest value symbol) will suddenly become pink or blue, and this will help form even higher paying winning combinations.
  • Demolition feature: This feature will destroy all one-eyed symbols and all matching symbols on the grid and a new cascade will follows – hopefully creating more valuable combos.
  • Incision feature: A wild symbol will be cut into the centre of the grid, which then creates two diagonal lines through the grid. Both lines will then show the same random symbol.

If you manage to fully charge the energy meter, i.e. fill up all 5 lines, the Gargantoon will then make a quantum leap into the grid. The three-eyed monster will then form a giant 3×3 wild symbol and complete many different combinations. The Gargantoon divides and moves with each cascade, it first becomes a pair of 2×2 wild symbols, then 9 individual wilds.

There are also 3 bonus features which are randomly activated.

  • Instability feature: If you have a winless spin, the Gargantoon can randomly add up to 8 wilds into the grid.
  • Giantoonz feature: When you land a 2×2 square combination ( four symbols next to each other in a square shape) the symbols will morph into a Gargantoon and the payout is doubled.
  • Fluctuation feature: On each spin, one random low-value one-eyed alien symbol will be nominated as the fluctuating symbol. If this symbol forms part of a winning combination, it leaves two wilds in its wake after it has exploded, and they will remain for the next cascade.

Graphics and Sounds

Reactoonz is very visually appealing, the cartoon aliens are extremely detailed, the 3D effect and the cascading reels are very innovative and the whole quantum/futuristic works perfectly.

Conclusion

As mentioned above, Reactoonz is not a typical slot game. If you’re used to 5-reel video slots with fixed paylines and scatter triggered bonus features then will certainly be in for a surprise. That’s not to say it’s not a good game, in fuct the cluster pay payout feature can be especially rewarding.

However, not everyone will like the concept that you have to ‘earn’ special features by winning, although there are randomly rewarded bonuses, the main ones are activated when the energy meter is charged. That being said, Reactoonz does offer enormous payouts if you’re lucky enough and it’s definitely worth trying out.
