Hypernova Radical Reels Review
ReelPlay found success with the Hypernova series with Hypernova Megaways. Ultimately, this online slot showed the beauty of space mixed with engaging gameplay. Naturally, ReelPlay wanted to push this series even further with a new mechanic called Radical Reels. This mechanic completely ignores the traditional reel system and instead has a circle with 3 different layers to it with 12 paylines.
This mechanic is mesmerising and fits right in with the space theme of the slot, whilst keeping the gameplay fun and understandable. Hypernova Radical Reels is completely unique and is a must-play for any avid online slot player.
Just like the original slot, Hypernova Radical Reels is set in space with an almost identical background. There are various bright and ethereal colours that are scattered across the screen along with various stars and constellations. What's even more incredible is that the Radical Reels actually blend in well with the design as it looks like a space wormhole.
The symbols on the reels are almost identical to the original slot as well but it fits in with the theme. Of course, it would've been appreciated if they had changed some up or added new ones, but it's not too much of an issue.
As for the music, it's similar to the original but has a more epic score with violins mixing with the techno sounds. When you score wins, you'll have a diluted version of Georges Bizet's 'March of the Toreadors' which definitely makes you feel epic.
The Radical Reels mechanic is utterly unique and will definitely be hit and miss for some players. There are no traditional reels, but instead, 3 different circles that contain various symbols. The symbols come from the supernova in the middle of the screen and swirl out. You can win by matching up 3 symbols from the inner circle to the outer circle and that's all that you really need to know.
Whilst, this mechanic may seem complicated, it's pretty straightforward once you see it in action. As for relevant menus and buttons, you can find them at the bottom of the screen in a drop-down menu with the autospin, bet level and anything else you may need. The spin button is just right of the reels and stands out against the powerful background.
The RTP is at a decent 96.26% along with a medium to high volatility level. This slot definitely leans more towards high volatility, so make sure that you have the bankroll to sustain yourself.
Hypernova Radical Reels actually has a brilliant maximum win at 25,000x your stake - which is incredible for an online slot. However, it should be noted that the only maximum bet that we could find was 15.00, so don't expect earth-shattering wins.
It's always refreshing to try something new in regards to online slots, and Radical Reels are pretty entertaining. Of course, the Infinity Reels mechanic is one of a kind, but the Radical Reels could eventually be on the same level and be the next big thing.
From the design to the gameplay, you'll be in for a fantastic time with Hypernova Radical Reels. If you love trying new slot mechanics or love space themes, then definitely check out this slot for an unusual experience.
