Reactoonz bonus features
Part of the excitement of Reactoonz comes from its unusual features:
Cascading and Cluster Pays
Instead of spinning reels with paylines, symbols drop down (cascade) into place. Wins are created with 5 or more adjacent and identical symbols, horizontally or vertically touching. These winning groups are called ‘clusters,’ and they explode, leaving spaces that are filled by more cascading symbols. The explosion of winning clusters will continue as part of the game round, for free, until no new winning clusters form.
Quantum Leap Charge Meter
To the left of the reels, you’ll find what is referred to as a ‘Quantum Leap charge meter.’ From within each game round of cascading symbols, winning clusters are used to charge the meter by 1. Fully charging the meter will add 1 of 5 possible Quantum Features to a queue triggered at the end of a round:
Implosion: 3-6 symbols are transformed into wilds while simultaneously destroying adjacent symbols.
Alteration: A one-eyed alien or an available symbol if no one-eyed alien is present, is chosen to be replaced by another symbol.
Demolition: All matching symbols and one-eyed aliens are destroyed.
Incision: A wild symbol is surgically implanted in the centre while creating two diagonal lines of an identical symbol that runs the length of the grid.
Gargantoon: Charging all 5 levels of the meter adds the Gargantoon Feature to the queue, which randomly places a 3×3 sized wild to the grid. When the cascades are completed, it transforms into a 2×2 wild symbol and ends off as 9 (1×1) wild symbols.
The Gargantoon symbol may also randomly appear on a losing round to deposit anywhere from 4 to 8 wild symbols anywhere on the grid. It’s definitely fun to see more wilds added to the playing area.
A square-shaped pattern of 4 regular, identical symbols will form a ‘Giantoonz.’ As a bonus, wins containing a Giantoonz receive a 2x multiplier.
