Symbols in the game
All of the retro game symbols that are synonymous with traditional slot machines are present and correct. There are even some authentic arcade game sound effects. The game also features many of the benefits of online video slot gameplay with its 5 reels and 20 paylines and are some extra features up for grabs such as free spins and an intriguing “Respin” option.
The games least rewarding icons are the fruits – 5 plums will pay 200x the amount coins placed on the winning line, while 5 lemons and 5 cherries will both pay 250x. All the bar symbols will also multiply the line bet by 250x if 5 appear, as will the white 7 symbol. Five red and blue 7s will result in a 500x payout. The most valuable icon is the dollar sign, which will multiply the line bet by 10,000x.
You can also complete winning lines by mixing the different bar and 7 icons in sequences. The only downside to this is that these combinations will not result in huge wins. Nonetheless, it is a good way to keep your balance topped up – especially since there is no wild symbol.
Features in the game
This game boasts a very interesting extra gameplay feature which gives players another chance to make a winning combination without having to spin all 5 reels. So, imagine that you have a dollar sign sitting on a pay line along reels 1, 2, 4, and 5. You just need to find another dollar sign on reel number 3 to potentially complete that jackpot winning combination.
This feature is available to use after every normal spin in the base game, all you have to do is click the “Respin” button that appears beneath the reel that you wish to spin again. This will come at a cost, the price of which will be stipulated beneath each reel. A good way to make the most of this feature is to use it when you have a lot of bar and 7 symbols on the reels, because they will combine in mixed combinations and it won’t cost a lot of credits to respin.
One thing that you need to bear in mind is that changing your stake amount will forfeit any respin opportunities that you have. The option to respin is not available during the free spins round.
You can trigger up to 25 free spins with Retro Reels by finding the bonus scatter symbol, which is depicted by the number 5 and the word “Bonus”. The quantity of free spins which you are entitled to is determined by the number of these scatter symbols that appear on the reels. Two scatters will reward 10 free spins, 3 will reward 15, 4 will reward 20 and 5 will reward 25. That is potentially a lot of stake-free plays to enjoy! If that wasn’t enough, all wins will be doubled during this bonus round.
The maximum wager amount that can be placed is worth 100.00 while the minimum amount is a nice and safe 0.01.
