Jelly Reels Slot (Wazdan)

Jelly Reels Slot (Wazdan)Jelly Reels is a game that’s coming out in 2021, and it will be one of the last releases from Wazdan. Jelly Reels has excellent graphics and an unusual theme, inspired by sweets.

The inclusion of the Hold the Jackpot bonus features is a clear indication that the developer is ready to pay out awesome payouts.

I had some free time over the weekend, and this is how I got to experience this slot for real money. Here is my unbiased review:

Game Set-Up

The first thing that really amazed me about this slot is its large game area, as Wazdan has set it on 8x8 reels. This is how you end up with up to 16,777,216 ways to win.

For the features, I got to work with Free spins bonus, Buy Feature, Cascading Reels, Colossal Symbols, Hold and Win Jackpot, Megaways, Millionways, Mystery Symbols, as well as Respins Wilds.

Betting and Prizes

On a good day, you can take home up to 2,500x the stake on each spin, and the best part is that on Jelly Reels, I was allowed wagers of between $0.10 and $10,000.

As usual with Wazdan slots, you get to choose your own volatility level. The RTP is slightly above average at 96.22%.

Jelly Reels Slot Features

I got lots of reels and lines, but to get paid, I needed winning icons on the slot’s adjacent reels. To form a winning combo, I was required to land 4 to 8 matching symbols on adjacent reels, starting from the left to right.

With the help of the cascading reels mechanic, I was happy to see the winning icons removed, and they were replaced with new ones. This offered me more opportunities to land additional wins.

Mega symbols are also present, and you can get wild icons of between 1x1 and 3x3.

And talking of wilds, Wazdan has given them the usual duty of substituting the regular features.

Each time I landed 3 to 5 Bonus icons on the reels, I got a chance to pay for a re-spin, which in return gave me additional scatters. This is how I managed to trigger the main feature of the game which is the Hold the Jackpot.

To claim the jackpot, I needed to fill the reels with bonus symbols. Either way, each of the bonus icons come with a prize.

It’s an interesting feature that is played on a different game area, with up to 40 independent reels, 8 of these reels are initially locked.

I was able to unlock them with the help of bonus symbols by landing them in the bottom section, and corresponding locations.

The symbols which will help you with this include:

Jackpot symbols (Major, Minor, and Mini)

Mystery symbols (will be transformed into any type of bonus symbol)

Silver Coins (these collect values from silver and gold coins that appear on the reels, bringing in a 5x multiplier)

Golden coins (pay between 1x and 5x the stake)

Snakes (add more Gold Coins or double their value)

Theme & Design

This is not the first time that I’m seeing a candy-themed design using the Cluster Pay System. Jelly Reels offers brightly coloured graphics, with hills covered in various types of jelly beans, that are turned into trees and plants.

On the reels are various symbols that include low-value cherries, lemons, watermelons, grapes, raspberries, blue stars, bears, as well as 7s. Wilds and scatters serve as feature symbols.


The Jelly Reels slot machine offers a long list of excellent features, and it’s one that players will find enjoyable. The only downside is the lack of a huge top jackpot; there is a 2,500x maximum payout which may not be very attractive to high rollers.

Overall, it’s a great slot with lots of potentials, and I can recommend it to all levels of players.
