Focus on Reef Raider™ Slot
As a 7×7 cluster pays slot, Reef Raider™ is a game which pits pirate against underwater adventure. Featuring Avalanche wins and a range of other bonus features, Reef Raider™ is a game that seeks to plumb new depths.
Betting rules in Reef Raider™ are simple, with stakes ranging from 20 cents to $100 per spin. Don’t let this simplicity fool you, however, as crafty pirate predecessors have hidden enough treasure under the waves to contribute a maximum payout of 8,500x.
Gameplay Reef Raider™ Slot
Starting out in Reef Raider™ is as simple as choosing your stake and spinning the reels. Cluster wins are awarded when a minimum of five adjacent symbols are collected. With each win triggering the Avalanche™ feature, wins can continue as long as matches are made. While playing, adventurers continually build the Treasure Trail feature, adding to the 15 ‘Meter Bars’ as Clam Wilds are collected via cluster wins. Travelling this trail unlocks extra features at four different points, with a full 15 meter granting access to the Free Spins bonus game.
As just one in our deep collection of video slots, there’s a lot to be found beneath the surface.
Winning symbols on Reef Raider™
As you might expect on a sub-nautical adventure, the symbols in Reef Raider™ revolve around the brilliance of a sun-soaked reef. Featuring a variety of colourful shells and shining gems, these symbols step outside of the usual fare while still capturing what makes slots satisfying.
Wilds come in two forms, Wild Clams and Wild Coins. Each of these features a prominent W placed within, so they're always easy to spot.
Bonus & Free Spins
The bonus features in Reef Raider™ tie into the Treasure Trail Meter Bar. These work with consecutive Avalanche wins, where reaching certain markers unlocks corresponding special bonuses.
- Three Avalanche wins give the Anchor Drop Feature. During this feature, up to three different types of lower value symbols are selected at random. These are then removed from the reels, resulting in another Avalanche, and the potential for more matches.
- Six Avalanche wins unlocks the Random Wilds Feature. With this, between four and eight Coin Wilds are added randomly to the reels, again raising the possibility for big wins.
- Nine Avalanche wins grants the Mystery Chest feature. This bonus replaces between two and 16 low and medium value symbols with a randomly selected identical symbol.
- Twelve Avalanche wins means players gain access to the powerful Cannon Blast feature. This cannon randomly blasts a single symbol from play, generating an explosion that removes all others symbols from the same column and row.
To reach the Free Spins bonus game, players must fill the Treasure Trail Meter to its maximum of 15 points. Achieving this feat gives the player nine free spins, with a further two spins added for every three charges on the bar when the free spins game is activated. Further free spins can also be added if another 15 Treasure Trail Meters are filled within the bonus game, after which every three charged bars add an additional free spin.
While free spins are active, a Mystery Overlay is applied to the reels. This overlay places a mystery symbol randomly on one of the reels, with four more being added directly next to it on the same row or column. These transform into the same symbol on each free spin, with the mystery symbol able to grow if it becomes part of a winning cluster.

Our Reef Raider™ Tips
Though Reef Raider™ has been designed to be a streamlined experience, there are a couple of things that both newcomers and slot enthusiasts should keep in mind. The first is that the autoplay feature can be great to keep the reels spinning automatically, to save your clicking or tapping finger. The fast spin option can also cut down on the time it takes for the reels to stop, further saving time for players in a hurry.
