Reef Raider is a slot game which was released by NetEnt in 2021.
The game comes with a grid of 7 by 7 symbols, giving 49 symbols in total. The game features a very colorful beach theme with seashells and treasure chests.
5 or more of the same symbols connected horizontally or vertically form a winning combination. Reef Raider also uses the avalanche feature, meaning winning symbols are removed and new symbols fall on top, creating another option for a new win.
The game also features wild symbols which can multiply a winning combination with x2, x3, x5 or x50 times.
Each time a winning cluster is removed with a wild symbol the trail around the slot game will charge. Every 3 charges will award a bonus.
If you collect up to 15 charges on the trail you will trigger the free spins feature. You will receive 9 free spins and 2 more free spins for every extra 3 charges.
During free spins an overlay is visible on the grid. Here mystery chest symbols will appear and will all change into the same symbol. There are more chests appearing during each free spin. When this increased the overlay, this overlay will be bigger the next spin.
All other bonuses are also still active.
15 charges will add 1 more free spin and each 3 more will add another free spin.
The game looks very good, comes with enough bonuses to keep it interesting and can pay out up to 8.500 times your bet, which is also a nice amount.
Overall I think they have created a fun new slot game with a grid.
