Okay, so here's the third and final version of Retro Reels game from Microgaming. No other game provider likes to do this several same game cloning thing except Microgaming. In a way, that increases their total number of games available, to give an impression that Microgaming has got a lot of games for players to play, when in truth, most of the games in the list are really nothing more than clones. Nonetheless, a quick recap of the 3 games, for comparison. Retro Reels, 20-paylines, No Wilds, 2 Scatters to trigger Free Spins game, up to 25 free spins, all wins are doubled. Retro Reels Diamond Glitz, 25-paylines, No Wilds, 3 Scatters to trigger Free Spins game, up to 25 free spins, all wins are doubled. Retro Reels Extreme Heat, 30-paylines, has got Wilds, 3 Scatters to trigger Free Spins game, up to 20 free spins, all wins are doubled. See the slight differences between each game?

As for the paytable, the Wild symbol pay 10,000x the line bet for 5 of them, substitutes for all except for the Scatter symbol, but doesn't do anything else. A typical dumb Wild symbol. The Bonus Scatter pays only 50x the total bet for 5 of them, half of the usual payout amount, why, don't ask me! 3, 4 or 5 Bonus Scatter symbols trigger 10, 15 or 20 free spins with all wins doubled, and more free spins can be retriggered. Again a reduction in value and winning chances. All the other symbols pay the same, from 500x down to 50x (mixed combinations), all per line bet for 5 of each kind. The Wild symbol gets added in, but all other values get reduced. Still a low paytable.

Instead of seeing lots of Diamond symbols, there's now plenty of '7' symbols, in threes, twos and ones. The 'Bar' symbol follows the same, with threes, twos and ones, and the whole play area gets cramped up with so many '7' and 'Bar' symbols at a time! Sheesh! Most players may not mind this at all, but not me. I hate messy situations!

Game wise, it plays about the same way as the Diamond Glitz version, but the presence of the Wild '$' symbol does make a slight difference in the payout patterns. The mixed combination wins are probably the easiest to get on the reels, 5 of which paying only 50x the line bet amount, which isn't much at all, but it keeps the game going for longer periods of time. This bit I quite like, as compared to the other two games that doesn't have any Wild symbols at all. In the end, winning or losing is a matter of individual luck. No two player can get the same results all the time. Not even most of the time. But as for me, my luck with Microgaming games remain unchanged! No luck at all on 99% of Microgaming games! Maybe I'm 'allergic' to cloned games, who knows! Hahaha.

I like this kind of game, the kind of "old meets new" slot games that combine elements of fruit machines and slots from the bygone era of gaming with high resolution graphics, exciting features and lots of paylines. It's a definite recipe for success in my view, and Microgaming obviously thinks so too as they have created several slots in this "Retro Reels" series using this formula.

The games RTP is amongst the highest you will find on-line at a massive 97.5% - it's surprising you don't see this game prohibited from bonus play considering that Blood Suckers is almost universally barred thanks to its 98% RTP. Most of the wins on the paytable are fairly good, the maximum being 10,000 coins for a line of five wilds but five scatters is set quite low at 50x stake.

It's all the more surprising you can play this with a bonus when you realize this game also offers the ability to re-spin individual reels similar to Hot Ink - another game that is often banned from bonus play. This isn't a clone of that game though, the paytable is stacked very differently and this is a 30 line game whereas Hot Ink had a larger visible play area and 1024 pay ways. Unsurprisingly though the cost of respinning a single reel is calculated based on the probability of that reel awarding you a large win, and if you have two scatters on the screen it will cost you plenty to respin for a shot at the third - you have to decide if that cost is worth it rather than just spinning the reels from scratch once again.

You can win up to 20 free spins when all five scatters land but most of the time you'll have to make do with the standard ten - free spins wins receive a 2x multiplier, and you cannot use the respin feature for the duration of the bonus.

This isn't my favourite Retro Reels game but it's a good contender, and the re-spin feature is something that I think will satisfy the dreams of many slot players. I do think it can be prohibitively expensive to use this feature a lot but just occasionally it can be a lot of fun to give it a try.

Retro Reels Extreme Heat is probably my favourite slot from the Retro Reels series. I play this game anytime I can and it never fails to surprise me. I never win a lot, but small amounts that come on regular basis. I always make a deposit, sometimes 20 sometimes 30 and I always make a withdrawal. This is 5 reels and 30 pay lines video slot game. I have to say that I do not prefer the design and I would say that the one of the Retro Reels Diamond Glitz is better. But in the end, who cares about the design of a game, we are all in for the cash.

The last time I played this game I got 10 free spins as soon as I started playing and I won 28.20 euros. I was playing with 0.60 bet and I continued to do so. I did not raise my bet even though the game was paying on a regular basis. This can be sometimes tempting. But I know that most of the times when you raise your bet the game can hit a big win or eat your money. It is more probably that the second one will happen so I did not change anything. Next bonus I won 20.40. I cannot say that I won more than 30 x bet during the free spins, but still it was not bad. I made a deposit of just 20 euros and in a very short time I made a withdrawal of 120 euros.

You can also get more spins during this game too. If you get 3 scatters, which is the free spins bonus symbol you get 10 free spins. For 4 scatters you get 15 free spins and for 5 scatters you get 20 free spins. Ironically, like in every other game I never get more than the smallest amount of free spins.

What else can I say about this game, I just love it.
