The Joy of Six

Slot gaming is a substantial draw for players at Neon Jackpot casino and you’d be forgiven for thinking that, despite the hundreds of choices we offer, the only number of reels a ‘proper’ slot has is either five or three. Three if you’re after the retro feel of a vintage casino machine – a popular example with our players being SG’s 7’s to Burn – or five if you’re seeking the video slot feel made famous by slots like IGT’s Cleopatra. However we’ve noticed over recent times that there have been a few games sneaking a sixth reel into their layouts, and to great effect judging by the players returning to them time and time again.

More Six Appeal

Perhaps the king of the six-reel gang has got to be the phenomenon that is Big Time Gaming’s Bonanza Megaways slot and its spin-offs such as Extra Chilli and Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. These slots addition of the extra reel is part of the formula that lets them reach the staggering potential of having 117,649 Ways to Win. However other slot developers have found other entertaining ways to make a sixth reel enrich the entertainment of specific titles in their roster. For instance Red Tiger’s Pirates’ Plenty was a recent treat that put a sixth reel into its mix with an achievement bonus tied into its activation, making it a very attractive feature to unlock bigger wins from loyal play.

Hit For Six

Should you fancy ‘hitting a six’ this week, we’re delighted to extend that choice with the arrival of another option in the shape of Pragmatic Play’s Wild Gladiators. In this case you’ll find the sixth reel takes on the role of enhancing your chances in two possible ways. One is to gift a multiplier to enhance any win the five standard reels muster, the alternative being the award of a Wild on every stopped reel. It’s a very smart feature, and definitely a winner if you’re fast becoming a six addict when it comes to your slot preferences!
