Microgaming have been in this industry longer than any other online pokie developer. This means that they understand retro more than anyone else, because they were creating these games long before they even became retro. Retro Reels is a unique take on that retro look. The symbols and the style is the same, but instead of the typical 3 reel, 1 payline setup, there are 5 reels and 20 paylines. You’ll also find many more features on this pokie than you’ll find on the old-school pokies.
Retro Reels can be found on Spin Palace and other top Microgaming casinos.
Retro Reels has a very retro feel, with a slick, old-school design. The symbols don’t pay a huge amount, but there are many that pay 500x and 250x, and the biggest, which is the dollar symbol, pays 10,000x for 5. The individual lines also have a “re-spin” feature, similar to the “nudge” found on old arcade machines.
You can’t choose how many lines you play, but you can play for as little as $0.01 per line, which works out at $0.20 per spin.
There is a free spins round on Retro Reels where you can claim between 15 and 25 free spins, depending on how many of the scatter symbols you unlock. These spins can be re-triggered during the feature, and this is also where you can win the in-game jackpot, which is 100,000 coins. The scatter symbol also unlocks an instant win amount, which goes as high as 100x if you land 5 of them.
We usually don’t have much time for retro games, but we really enjoyed this one. It looks great, it has more reels and paylines than many old-school games and there is a very generous free spins round as well. What’s not to like?
