“Under the sea. Under the sea. Darling, it’s better, down where it’s wetter.” To be fair, I don’t buy that, but this game is better than a lot. Whether it’s because it’s wetter? Hmm, not in my opinion.

Laaaave this. It’s like a dark version of My Little Mermaid with its personable lobsters, crabs and sea snails pottering about the place.
And yep, they all look super cool too in their crisp graphics shells together with the little lifelike animations they make every now and again.
The gameplay itself’s a tiny bit basic, it has to be said, but if we’re talking visuals and visuals alone as we’re supposed to in this section, well yeah, top job all around.
With regards to the symbols, they’re all different type of sea life creatures with a puffer fish, a crab, a lobster, an octopus, a sea snail, and a seahorse all featuring.
The best symbol to hit is the puffer fish symbol which pays out at 1,000/1 should you hit five in a row.
The bonus round on Reef Run just consists of free spins, and you can win 60 free spins if you hit the Free Spin symbol on all five reels. Whenever you win on a symbol you will get a multiplier on that symbol for the next time you win.
You can’t bet on different lines on Reef Run, but you can bet between 20p and £100 per spin. The house edge is a good 3.6%.
There is an autoplay feature which comes with a number of autostop options.
Big fan of this game. It’s not going to win any awards, that’s true, but it’s a very solid game in a sea of dry slot ideas and personality.
But though it has lovely graphics, excellent animations and transitions, a low house edge, and decent potential wins, I do have one gripe.
And that’s that the bonus round is just so boring. I mean, at least there is a bonus round, I guess, but it’s just free spins, and I expect more from Yggdrasil, I really do. It’s a shame, it really is, because a decent bonus round would’ve made this game elite! Daym.
