The Reel Deal Slots

The Reel Deal Slots is a low budget money themed game that looks kind of odd and we’re not sure how to place it. Thematically it’s out there, the look of the game is all over the place, and it feels like we’re somewhat missing the boat on what this game tries to be about. We didn’t thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent with it, mostly wishing that the theme came together a little better because we felt somewhat left out, like we were hearing an inside joke go on forever that we weren’t privy too.

It pays well and plays well, so if you like what you see, you’ll likely have a good time. If not, read on, and we’ll help you sort it all out, we promise.


The premise of The Reel Deal Slots is... Well, we’re not entirely sure. It’s somewhat like the TV show Deal or no Deal, but they didn’t do much with it, so it’s more like a slot made of floating faces you don’t know and money and buttons and really old soap bar phones. It’s not ugly, and it looks like there’s some sort of logic to it, but the theme to us ended up feeling like ‘forms of currency and faces’, which made us feel a little left out of the game the longer we played it.


Graphics in The Reel Deal Slots are fine. Everything is crisp, clear, colorful, and compelling to look at, which makes your time spent playing all the easier because of how easy they are on the eyes. The faces are an interesting style we haven’t seen often before and we like them.

Our main misgiving is that in an attempt to possibly be based on a TV show, they didn’t do much to really push that feeling home. It’s unclear what everything is about other than money, and if they were going to do money, they could have made more daring and inventive decisions that were less boring and more coherent.


Gameplay in The Reel Deal Slots is fine, despite how much we’ve given them a hard time on all else. At 5 reels and 20 pay lines, it does not break the mold there, chosing instead to keep things classy in ways we can respect.

Betting here ranges from a penny to $10, making this an accessible slot that anyone can jump into in hopes of winning a lot of money without worrying about necessarily breaking the bank in the process. Max bets cap out at $200, which tends to be how we rolled when we played it a bunch for our review.

The bonus round is called The Reel Deal Bonus Round, which wins the award for least inventive name ever, but is fun because out wallets got fatter.


+ Okay graphics + Pays well + Solid and classic play mechanics + Decent payouts


- Poor use of the theme - Gameplay is not very innovative - Can be a little addicting at times for obvious reasons

Who is this Game For?

This game is suitable for players of all types. In particular, it should appeal to:

* Players new to digital slots and looking for something relatively accessible * Moderate intensity players that have gotten their feet plenty wet in the online slots world and are looking for something a little more involved * Jaded slot vets * People that mostly want to win a bunch of money playing digital slot games * Players looking for slot nostalgia for the similarities and differences this slot has to other games * People more used to normal video games that are looking to get their feet wet in the world of online slots

Who is the Game NOT For?

Although we enjoy this slot, it is not for everybody. In particular, it may not be your cup of tea if this describes you in any fashion:

* Averse to winning money online * Looking for something truly innovative in the genre * You find the theme in any way offputting

Is it Buggy?

In the time we spent playing this game, we did not encounter any bugs, problems, or errors. The same cannot be said for all slots of this genre, so we commend the developers for a job well done on that. We also encountered no issues in processing winnings or payments, and everything ran very smooth just like you would expect across many varied devices in a variety of ecosystems and operating systems.


The Reel Deal Slots is an odd game to talk about because you never feel like it’s all that sure of what it’s about. It’s almost an ode to a TV show but never manages to hit that sweet spot. As it stands, it pays well, plays fine, and you will no doubt enjoy your time with it for that reason. We still wish they’d have used a different theme, however, as they’re clearly talented, but didn’t pull this one off very well. If we have to think about what this game’s about, they failed.
