Dive into retro Las Vegas with Microgaming’s exclusive Reel Splitter Online Slot by JFTW.
Once again, Microgaming’s exclusivity contracts are paying off for the world’s largest developer of internet casino gaming content. One of their more famous partners, Just For The Win (aka JFTW), creator of Goldwyn’s Fairies, Side Winder, Rockabilly Wolves and others, has just launched its latest creation on the Quickfire casino platform. It’s called Reel Splitter, and its name is more meaningful than you may realize.
JFTW’s new Reel Splitter Slot has a classy retro Las Vegas feel, but the game’s features are anything but classical. In a cacophony of neon envy and lounge piano tunes, the 4-reel video slot has the ability to split part, expanding to 5 reels with 243 ways to win in both directions.
Microgaming’s Jagoda Barber, Head of Games for the Isle of Man company, calls the Reel Splitter Slot “colourful, traditional and straightforward on the outside, breaking open to reveal truly contemporary and engaging features.”
He as especially impressed with the “sleek graphics and innovative mechanics” infused by JFTW. “The game is ideally suited to players at all levels, reimagining the vintage casino experience with a host of exciting original features.”
JFTW CEO Johan Persson describes it as his design crew’s “modern take on vintage slots”, bringing “the dazzle and lavish atmosphere of the old Vegas Strip to players” of Microgmaing-powerred online casinos. “We’ve had a lot of fun developing Reel Splitter, and we can’t wait for players to experience our timeless new title,” he said.

The game’s got a vibrant, neon color scheme typical of old school Vegas. In classic reel slot fashion, it’s adorned with delectable fruits – lemons, plums, kiwi and cherries – plus the Reel Splitter logo. In keeping with the modern side effects, the low paying symbols are playing card values of A, K, Q, J and 10. The wild is a brilliant bright pink surrounded by lightbulbs, taking the place of any other standard symbol to help line up winning combinations of 3+ on a line.
In the base game, there are 4 reels and 8 ways to win, covering all possible lines from left to right. 4-reel video slots are extremely rare, but this one won’t stay in 4-reel mode for too long. Tehre are two features that can expand the reels to 5×3.
The first is the Reel Split Re-Spin. This feature can trigger at random, but only when a line of four alike symbols is paid. If triggered, the reels split right down the middle, injecting a new reel between the second and third reels. Only this new middle reel will spin. As it does, the ways to win increase to 243, now paying in both directions.
Next us is the game’s Free Spins Feature. This one triggers anytime 3 or 4 Free Spins scatters appear anywhere on the reels, awarding 8 or 16 free spins respectively. During free spins, the reels split once more to expand to 5 reels with 243 all-ways wins.
All told, the game has an average 96.02% RTP and a medium variance. Bets range from $0.10 up to $100 per spin with a max 271,740 coin payout. JFTW built the Reel Splitter Online Slot in HTML5 for seamless optimization across all desktop and mobile platforms.
