The Freeroll Reel Deals Slots Tournament has been running all this month at English Harbour so I thought it was about time I participated
This was the first time I had played the Reel Deal Slot Game so at the same time I did a review for Slots Jam . It turned out to be a really enjoyable slots game, mostly because of the bonus game which is based on the popular TV Show Deal or No Deal.
At the time of entering the tournament there were already well over 14,600 participants, which isn't surprising given a guaranteed prize fund of $10,000.
My strategy was to play as many spins at the lowest betting stakes, say 150 spins, and then increase the coin size as I felt it was more likely I would trigger the bonus round. For me the game was triggering approximately on average every 200 spins.
In the bonus game you choose your own briefcase. Then you open 6 more revealing there worth from 10 cents up to $1000. I was max betting all lines at 10 cents a line so $2.00 per spin
After opening the first 6 briefcases I had revealed only 1 high amount of $100 on the right side of the screen which had values ranging from $7.50 to $1000.
I was then offered $66.09 by the banker for my briefcase or the chance to open another 5 boxes.
The banker makes you a an offer based on the likelihood that the first briefcase I chose as my own contains a high value. If I felt my briefcase has the $1000 I would obviously keep going until I've open all briefcases and just left with my own one and keep that amount.
Based on the fact there were 6 higher amounts stillleft on the board I thought I would take the chance to reveal more boxes.
I run pretty good with the highest amount I revealed was $300. The banker was now offereing me $91.40.
That seemed a fairly good offer, there were still plenty of low priced boxes on the board so I carried on.
Next round I was then offered $105.29 or the chance to open 3 more boxes.
Values left on the board were:
I closed the deal for the $105.29 and it was then revealed my box held $50 so I did a good deal!
I carried on playing and when betting 25 cents per coin I won a total of over $858. In that bonus game I started out really bad picking a lot of high value boxes but I had decided from the offset to go all the way to end, however with, I think it was 3 boxes left and still the top prize of $2500 on the board and the next highest $75 I decided to do the deal as that prize alone of $858 would put me in a money winning position in the slots tournament.
I finished the session ranked 51st which is a placing within the prize money zone for $50. If my tournament ranking stays in the top 88 I will win the $50 so with only 2 days left of the tournament to run I have a good chance of maintaining that winning position.
Here's a screenshot of my ranking which is shown in the bottom left hand corner.
