All these games with retro themes actually transported me to my childhood, where slots mechanics were placed in public places like bakeries, shops and cafes, and then I think my attraction to this kind of games should be something that I have inside my veins.
“Retro Reels Extreme Heat” is classified in many casinos on Top games section, and that is because despite it looks genuinely old thanks to its classic symbols, such as cherry, lemon, numbers 7 and bells, it is a thoroughly modern game, with excellent sound effects and an interesting table of payments, which also includes special features such as wild symbols and rounds of 10 (15, 20) free spins, and one great improvement in this version "Extreme Heat" is the inclusion of the option of re-spinning that can be individually bought by pressing button at the bottom of each column enabled after each spin.
For me, this opportunity to buy re-spins in individual columns is the magic of this game, and it must be because experiences with similar slots, both 3 x 5 and 4 x 5 reels, have been totally rewarding for me to create a taste for slots with such feature. Having never played this game from Microgaming, I decided to try it in fun mode and started with 1,000 credits, and at this point I think it would have been great to have done it with real credits.
Initially, I wanted to use re-spin feature to trigger a free spins round, and to achieve this I chose to wait until two scatters appear and then pay on re-spins on the cheapest reel to get my third scatter. During my playtime, I tried and succeeded on three occasions, and the results were, financially speaking, twice slightly negative and one acceptably positive rounds. With these, my final balance was almost equal to my initial balance, so I decided betterto try getting a longer possible wild symbols line, and to achieve this I set alert myself awaiting any opportunity to start, and I was looking for my first wild symbols, preferably (or perhaps necessarily) located on payline number 1 and preferably on reels number 1, 2, or 3, since it is important to get small profits to help finance the purchase of re-spins , that increase in value as more substantial profits are enhanced. The opportunity came quickly when there was a wild symbol on reel 3 payline 1 (great!) then re-started with the re-spins on reel 1 to get my second wild and I did so on, always trying to maintain close high paid symbols that will help me finance the value of re-spins, in this way, I used to keep triple bars or triple sevens near then I usually changed to another column to try finding another wild symbol. The truth is my balance was never below $ 960 before getting my fifth wild symbol on payline 1 that in my case was for the reel 5. I could say it was hard work to achieve the highest award offered by this game (10,000 X) but the truth is I usually got enough average earnings to pay the next spins; in addition, to make it took me less than one hour. I attached some screenshot to this comment as evidence. Earnings were $ 223 obtained by betting 2 coins to $ 0.01 each one x 30 lines and my ending balance was $ 1.197. Now I would like to try it again but now in real, not for fun, but I wish I could do it with a minimum opening balance of $ 1,000, just to be relaxed.
Anyway, this is one of the games developed by Microgaming which will be one of the highest rated from me. Good luck with this game ;)
