Retro Reels Extreme Heat is a sequel to the popular Retro Reels and has been developed under Quickfire's slot brand Microgaming. The game doesn't really have a definite theme as it goes for a classic casino vibe and anybody that has ever played a slot machine in a bar or casino will instantly be able to relate to this installment by Microgaming. The game might not appeal to everybody, and some customers may find the theme slightly generic, but we have had a few spins and detailed all the features below so you can make an informed decision as to whether this is worth your precious pennies!
The game is really similar to its predecessor but overall we had good fun playing it. There are a couple of decent bonus features which add to the gameplay, and the combination of wacky graphics and silly sound effects will certainly appeal to the player that enjoys a classic casino experience. There are five reels and thirty paylines as well as some decent betting options with the minimum bet being a penny and the maximum bet being well over £100 so all types of player can pick up this version and play instantly. We would recommend this to anyone looking for a new slot to play.
For those that are unfamiliar with modern slot game mechanics, the wild symbol is a specific symbol in a game that substitutes for most other symbols on the reel and as a result, increases the likelihood for players to pick up winning combinations as it helps create winning lines when it appears. For Retro Reels the wild symbol is represented by the burning dollar symbol and it stands out so you can't really miss it.
This is a contemporary feature for a great number of modern online slots and essentially you can use this feature to re-spin a single reel after a spin. This is useful if you have come close to a win and just missed out on a big pay-out, and all you need to do is click the re-spin button. You can use this as many times as you want but this can be risky and is an easy way to reduce your balance at a rapid rate so exert extra caution when using it and if you're not having any luck stop and take a break.
This is a classic feature that you will find in a lot of slots, and it is extremely popular for the simple reason that every slot player loves receiving free spins. They save money on deposits and are just a really enjoyable aspect of the slot market. The symbol has free spins written on it so you cannot miss it and if you land three, four or five of these symbols anywhere on the reel you will receive 10, 15 or 20 free spins respectively and additionally during this bonus game all wins are doubled! They can also be re-triggered so what's not to love?
