New Wazdan Online Slot Game: Choco Reels
High energy. Lots of features. Constant action. These are common descriptions of Wazdan’s latest online casino slot release called Choco Reels.
The game is customizable, so players can choose their own level of volatility and play the game on standard computers or laptops, iOS or Android mobile devices.
And at a time in our world where things seem a bit upside-down and living day-to-day is harder, there is no better time for a getaway into another world. Choco Reels takes players into a candy-filled and laid out on a chocolate grid on an ice-cream background.
Choco Reels Overview
As mentioned, players can first customize the game’s volatility to low, standard, or high. This will dictate the frequency and size of the wins per the players’ desires. (Low volatility creates smaller wins more frequently, and high volatility can space out the wins, but they are more sizeable when they do happen.)
No matter the setting, the RTP (return-to-player) is set at 96.22%.
This six-reel game also has six rows at its maximum. But to begin each regular game spin, the grid is a 2x4x6x6x4x2-reel layout. Choco Reels starts with 2,304 paylines but can increase to 46,656 paylines as players unlock the chocolate boxes. This happens when the friendly, animated bug character named Choco Bee eats the chocolate blockades to reveal more and more winning lines.
Wazdan Head of Sales Andrzej Hyla called the game highly engaging with a chocolate theme and a positive, inviting atmosphere. “With the very best of Wazdan’s tech expertise weaved into Choco Reels, we’re expecting our latest game to quickly become a player and operator favourite.”
Choco Reels Payouts
The max payout for this game is 9,500x the bet.
Speaking of bets, players can start as low as $0.20 per spin. They can increase that bet by $0.20 up to $1, then up to $2, $4, $6, $8, $10, $20, $40, $60, and $80, with $100 per spin being the max bet.

Choco Reels Gameplay & Features
Wild symbols substitute for most other symbols, except scatters.
The scatter is the large donut (with sprinkles!) that activates the free spins when three or more appear anywhere on the reels.
Those three (or more) scatter symbols trigger 10 free spins. If a random donut appears on the screen during this round of spins, the +3FS on it indicates an additional three free spins. Each win increases the multiplier by one, and there is no limit as to how high the multiplier can go.
During these free spins, all reel positions remain unlocked to give players 46,656 ways to win.
Note the cascading reels. Winning symbols drop from the grid and allow new ones to fall in their places to increase the win.
In addition, the betways increase in this game as Choco Bee eats the chocolate. This process starts after the player finds a winning combination on the reels, which unlocks two reel positions. Choco Bee can then appear on the reels to unlock two additional reel positions.
Players fill the baking syringe to the right of the reels with chocolate cream with winning spins, and when it fills to the top, it unlocks the Choco Spins Bonus. All reel positions will be opened already, and the bonus begins with six free spins. The multiplier increases by one after every spin but maxes out at x6 during this bonus. All reel positions remain unlocked throughout the bonus, giving players 46,656 ways to win.
Gamble and Buy
Wazdan offers some extra options for players.
One is the Gamble feature. After a win, the player finds an ice cream machine with two cones. He or she can choose the cone they think will fill. If correct, the player doubles his or her win. However, if incorrect, the player loses all winnings.
One double-up of winnings brings another opportunity to do the same. Each gamble is a 50-50 chance of winning another double or losing everything.
The Buy feature is the shopping card next to the player’s balance. It presents an opportunity to buy a free spins round or a Choco Spins Bonus round. The regular free spins option is twice as expensive but offers more spins and unlimited multipliers. The cost for each is listed and based on the player’s betting range at the time of the purchase.
