How do the tumbling reels slots work?
Once a matching combination is won, the winning tiles either disappear, explode, or crumble.
This leaves spaces on the board that need to be filled. Tiles from above then tumble into the vacant positions, almost like a respin, allowing the game to reassess whether any further winning combos have been made. This will continuously happen again and again, as long as winning combinations can be made. Once the end of the win, the reels will be ready to be spun again.
Oftentimes, games suppliers will ensure that for every successive reel tumble that occurs, a higher multiplier will be awarded to the win. Gonzo’s Quest is such a game, where your last tumble could earn you 5x. Some of the casino games will unlock a free spin bonus round after a specific number of successive tumblers occur. The reels will continue to cascade throughout these rolling reels special features, too.
