Bingo, another combo card is filled in Reeelz, an addictive blend of skill-based puzzle and luck-based slot machine from Game In a Bottle. No more mindlessly feeding coins into the one-armed bandit; if you prioritize and have a long term plan, you'll certainly come out on top. Take that, Las Vegas!

I like this. It's easy to pick up and get into, but there's more strategy involved than you'd think at first glance.

The different levels let you adjust your playing time based on how much free time you have. Plus the combo names are pretty clever and funny too.

There goes my morning.

The game is incredibly fun, but man... got to the 90-card level and lost with one combo to go. I needed a loan button :(.

It was odd, but nice, that if you had extra tokens you didn't immediately lose them. I can't help but feel that it's still largely luck-based, even with all of the strategy: I scraped by the beginner and intermediate levels with few extra tokens, but on the hard deck I ended with almost 70 extra. Pure luck.

Maybe I just started with the right strategy going in, but I didn't really find this a challenge at all.

Because there are so many combos to build, it really does take the luck out of the game. A fresh, random spin is going to to be lucky for some combos and unlucky for others, but because you get to choose which ones to go for, you can always pick the combination that gives you a big head start. Eventually, the luck will even itself out for all of the combos in the game.

Advice: On a fresh spin, first check to see if you have any high (3 or 4+ depending on difficulty) combos already. Then look at the top few "almost-there" combos for the highest combos there. Often, you'll only need to spend one or two tokens to get the last parts of the combo in place by stepping. Also keep your eye on the 2-star combos... when you can get a good head start (at least 3 showing or 5 with steps), forget about everything else and go for those. I'd say try to finish one of those about every 10 combos.

What tripped me up the most was I forgot that the game gave you a bunch of bonus tokens every so often, so I ended up going over. But, that gave me an excuse to start working on one of the big combos.

Same, I found it too easy too. I actually played through most of it without holding any of the slots because I forgot the option was there :P The only strategy was the mantra: don't be frugal!

Was fun, but for me the Step was backwards..
I normally expect the up button to scroll up.. and the down button to scroll down.. but it was the opposite. Messed me up time and time again..

[That's easy to fix. Click "Options" and check the box that reads: "Invert reeel stepping direction". -Jay]

This game is nice :)
I was spending ages just struggling on the 2nd deck until I realised you could step, then I finished with 32 tokens remaining =D

I enjoyed it, but like many I found it very easy. In the last game I ended it with more than 10 tokens over the max because I managed to get a majority of the starred items before I reached 100 combos - I found myself pretty much using the same strategies as listed above, and after the last game I kind of gave it up. I will say, a decent test of luck combined with skill is seeing how many tokens you can end the first game with. I was so close to getting a total of thirty, but I failed completely to get the "Only Calories" item, which I find rather challenging a lot. I find it interesting that the first game provides a more interesting maximizing challenge than the last ones.

"Midnight" seems broken am I missing something?

Just checking, but in the easy level (I just started) none of the combinations have stars on them. Are they all considered equally easy? Is that what makes it "easy"?

Starred cards give you bonus tokens when you clear them. They are definitely more difficult though.

For example:

#78 (4 days and 3 nights)
It's not just getting 4 suns and 3 moons, you have to have the board say

sun moon sun moon sun moon sun

in order to get the credit.

A bit boring, and yet challenging enough to waste an hour...

Has anyone noticed that Midnight Ritual somehow involves CHEESE?
