Chain Reactors Super Trails

Published: 30/01/2013

In 2006, OpenBet Technologies introduced the arcade game called “Chain Reactors” to online casinos. It was an immediate hit, which has since spawned an entire category of Reactor-style games, including Royal Reactors, Bingo Reactors and more. Now, the game called “Chain Reactors Super Trail” adds some new wrinkles to the tried and true Chain Reactors format.

The game board for Chain Reactors Super Trail is a 7x7 matrix of icon positions. Icons fall from the top of the display at random to fill all 49 positions. Whenever five or more matching icons appear in a group, adjacent to one another horizontally or vertically, they award a predetermined payout and then explode and disappear to leave a gap in the matrix—a so-called “Reaction.” The gap is immediately filled by a cascade of icons falling from above.

As long as Reactions keep occurring, payouts are made and the “spin” continues. It ends only when there are no more groups of five or more matching icons in proximity. A single spin can potentially go on for an endless number of Reactions.

The most enduring aspect of Chain Reactors is the amusing characters that make up its icons. They are certainly a lively group, hooting and hollering as they fall, shouting out “uh-oh” when they are about to explode, rolling their eyes, changing colours, and pulling off all kinds of other stunts in the course of each turn.

The icon called “Goldie” is something of the ringleader of the game. It resembles a yellow smiley face and is the most abundant symbol on the screen. As such, it pays the least—a stake multiplier of just 0.05X for 5~7 icons in a Reaction. However, the payouts increase with the number of icons involved in the Reaction, increasing to 1X when a dozen Goldies explode at once and 5X for 15~29 of them having a blast together. Goldie is also the only icon capable of triggering the game’s Jackpot, which requires at least 30 Goldies in a single Reaction.

The other characters are no less interesting, each in his or her own way. Red-coloured Spiky pays only a bit more than Goldies, from 0.05X to 15X for 5 to 15 or more icons reacting. Much bigger awards are paid for greenish Minty, orange-coloured Sunny, silver Zoid and bluish Horny—from 5X to 2000X, in fact.

One special aspect of Chain Reactors Super Trail is the “Bomb Feature.” A character called Bomb pays from 0.1X to 50X in Reactions, and each of his Reactions counts toward the feature bonus. When ten Reactions have occurred, a number of “bombs” drop into the game matrix, passed from reactor to reactor until they explode, obliterating icons of all types, paying a cash prize and creating gaps to be filled.

Similarly, the icon known as Flame initiates the “Fire (Dragon) Feature” when ten of her Reactions have occurred, worth 0.2X to 100X each. A fire-breathing dragon appears in the middle of the matrix and wends a random trail through the reactors, eliminating each one it encounters, until it exits the screen, pays a cash prize and leaves the gaps to be filled by a cascade.

In addition to those two special features, the Free Falls bonus (aka Free Play Trail) is activated any time seven Reactions occur on a single spin without an intervening “reactive” bonus. In the Free Falls mode, Bomb and Flame are replaced by Cyclo and Brainy, whose Reactions are valued at 1X to 500X. The number of free falls available is a function of the icons that triggered the bonus.

Chain Reactors Super Trails has a very useful Autoplay function. The option is located in the bottom right corner of the screen and can be set to 5, 10 or 25 spins using the pop-up menu. The value of the “Stake” for each spin can be set using the up/down toggles at the lower left corner, from €0.20 minimum to €500 maximum.
