Retro Reels is a Microgaming pokie that is available on many top casinos, including Jackpot City. There are 5 reel and 3 reel versions of this game, and in this review we’ll be focusing our attention on the 3 reel version, which offers a basic layout whilst including many of the benefits of the 5 reel edition.
As its name suggests, Retro Reels uses a retro, arcade theme, with all of the classic symbols you would expect to find on a pokie from the 1970s and 1980s. These include lemons, cherries, “bar” symbols and 7s. This is perfect if you want a shot of nostalgia, but if you’re looking for something a little more advanced and a little more polished, then you might be left disappointed with what Retro Reels has to offer.
Retro Reels can be played for as little as $0.01 per spin, although you’re not going to get much of a return betting with this amount. You can increase this to $1 if you would prefer, and you will get much more bang for your buck at this stake level. The game works in coins, and you set the value for these before each spin, so be sure you know how much you are betting and that you don’t confuse coins for real cash and assume you are betting with less than you are.
There are no bonus rounds on this pokie, which is no surprise considering it only has 3 reels. These retro, old-school games very rarely have advanced bonus rounds or even free spin rounds, as these features were only introduced in the last decade or so, riding the online wave. On the plus side, Retro Reels does have a wild symbol and a multiplier.
A fun pokie, Retro Reels is just as good as the 5 reel version and will appeal to fans of the retro, arcade style.
