How Do 15 Reel Slots Work?
When you see a 15-reel slot, you’ll know it what it is right away. This is because a normal-sized game screen can’t fit all of the reels vertically, so they are spread apart into three different sets of reels, with 5 reels each. So, essentially, you’re playing three different five-reel slots that are all connected. You’ll see this concept illustrated below in The Epic Journey from Quickspin:
In some situations, you may encounter a 5-reel slot that turns into a 15-reel slot. An example of this is More Chilli from Aristocrat. When you begin the free spins round, you’ll have a 5-reel game – but you’ll trigger more sets of reels the more you play. Once you collect 10 chilli symbols, you’ll trigger a third set of reels for a 15-reel gaming experience. It can further expand to four sets of reels.
Volatility of 15-Reel Slots
When you play a 15-reel slot, you can expect it to have medium volatility gameplay. This means that you’ll cash in on medium-sized prizes fairly regularly. It ensures that you’ll experience consistent wins and that they will be generous enough to hold your interest as you spin the reels.
How Common Are 15-Reel Slots?
Unfortunately, 15-reel slots are not very common at all. Currently, there are only a handful of games that offer this feature, but we hope to see more of them very soon.
