Retro Reels Slot Microgaming

Retro Reels is a 5 reels video slot with 20 pay-lines and it is running on Microgaming software. This slot combines cutting edge technology with the simplicity of retro style. Some of the well-known, old-school symbols can be found in this slot, like multicolored Lucky 7's, single and double Bars and Fruits. The reels are set in the old land-based slot console and the function buttons are in 3D. Feel free to try this slot here for free or visit Microgaming casinos to play for real money.

Before traveling back in time to get the real feel of old slot machines, you need to adjust your bet. Coin denominations range from 0.01 to 0.25 and can be set with "+/-". Pay-lines can be set with "lines" button, coins number with "coins" button, and "bet max" adjusts the maximum bet. "Spin" kick-starts the reels, and not until you press the "stop" will they cease to turn. Expert mode offers "auto-play" option which turns the reels for a preset number of times without interruption.

In Retro Reels video slot, vintage slot symbols are mixed with some modern slot features and these involve a scatter symbol, Free Spins bonus game and a Re-spin feature.

The 5 Free Spins Bonus symbol is the scatter of the game.  When you land two or more of these symbols anywhere on the reels, the Free Spins bonus round will be triggered.

Once you activate Free Spins bonus round you will be awarded with 5 free spins for each symbol that activated the bonus game. All regular wins are doubled during this feature, and bets and pay-lines are the same as they were with the spin that triggered the bonus round. Free spins can be re-activated, so when you hit two or more bonus symbols during this feature, additional free spins will be added to those remaining.

Re-spin feature enables you to spin a reel of your choosing while other reels remain fixed. You can re-spin a reel at the end of any spin for additional cost, and this cost is calculated separately for each reel. You can re-spin a reel multiple times, and you are only paid out for new winning combinations that are formed as a result of a re-spin.

Retro Reels is a fruit machine game of yesteryears, upgraded to contemporary standards, with symbols of fruits, 7, Bars and a $ sign. There's even a Bonus Scatter symbol that not only pays for getting them but also awards free spins for getting 2 or more of them too. Ah, these fruit games certainly have come a long way from the original fruit machine games, and playing better than ever. Those free spins certainly make a big difference from the original game which hasn't got it, plus, there's also a special 'Respin' feature added in to make the game more interesting and with more winning chances. Needless to say, there's also a lot of losing chances too.

There is no Wild symbol in this game, but there is a Bonus Scatter symbol, 5 of which pays the usual 100x total bet amount. Getting 2 of these Bonus Scatters anywhere on the reels award 10 free spins, and getting 3, 4 or 5 of them awards 15, 20 or 25 free spins, with all wins doubled, and more free spins can be retriggered. You certainly cannot find these features in the original fruit machine games, I can tell you that. The '$' symbol is the highest paying symbol, 5 of which pays 10,000x the line bet, which is very good. The Red '7' pays 500x, the Blue '7' pays 500x, the Grey '7' pays 250x and a combination of any '7' pays 100x, all per line bet for 5 of each kind. The other Bar and Fruit symbols pay from 250x to 75x, including a mixed combination of Bars paying 75x too, all per line bet for 5 of each kind. Pity there aren't any Wild symbols in the game, otherwise the paytable could be a good one instead of just being an average one. Ah well, we can't have it all, can we? These game designers would certainly cut whichever corners they can in order not to over-provide in the paytable.

The 'Respin' feature allows any individual reel to be respun, at an additional cost of course, to try and get a better or bigger current win. This Respin feature may look good at first glance, but requires extreme care and caution in using it. Continuous reckless use of it would drain out any credit balance amount! Each respin can cost anywhere from $0.01 to well over $3000, but the outcome of each respin does not guarantee a win. I hardly use this feature at all in any of my game plays, because I have seen how it could gobble up the credits with ease.

Nonetheless, playing Retro Reels can be good and fun, especially when the Free Spins game have been triggered, because the retriggering of more free spins within the Free Spins game is indeed possible. I once had 2 retriggers of 10 more free spins each time, giving me a total of 30 free spins, but the final total payout wasn't that good at all. Couldn't even break the 40x total bet amount, and that was really disappointing, to say the least.


There are only 2 things that I don't quite like with this Retro Reels game. One, there isn't any Wild symbol. Two, most of the payouts tend to be low or mediocre, hardly ever going above 30x the total bet amount. As a result, it becomes rather hard to win on this game, even by a small amount.

Retro Reels is a video slot game from Microgaming software that gives you a feeling as if you are playing it in a real casino. I have never played this game in a casino but when I found it here I wanted to give it a shot. This is an average slot. There are 5 reels and 20 pay lines and the game is powered with only one feature. That is the free spins feature. The thing that I liked here is that you only need two scatter symbols to start the free spins. At the same time this means that it would be easier to trigger the feature.

I was very annoyed at the beginning because after more than 200 spins I got 12.20 in bonus playing with 0.80 bet. The bonus round is very rare so after playing for so long I even forgot that this video slot has one. The next time I triggered free spins I got only 7.20 and the person that says “Congratulations first class work” at the end of every bonus seems like it is mocking with me. The third time I triggered the bonus round the game went crazy. I got extra free spins, so this time I got 45 free spins and a win of 67.50. This was a great win because my balance was going down during the base game. Couple of spins later I triggered free spins round again. I got 10 free spins and I got 9.60.


When it comes to this game, the wins are not that big. It seems like you can win something during the free spins. During the base game there are no wins at all. The slot offers the re-spin feature too, but it is yet another way to lose your money, because you never get the symbol that you want to. But if you like the old fashioned slots than this might be the game for you, but do not expect to win big.

Retro reels is a slot that I gave a shoot when I was browsing for a new game to play with my little balance left on my account. I didn't think much for this slot at the time but I have to say that this is a classic example of those old school slots that can be quite amusing and sometimes very lucky.

This slot is powered by Microgaming and it has 5 reels and 20 paylines and the minimum bet is 0.20$ which is also the bet that I was playing with at that time. The graphic for this slot isn't quite good which is of course expected and same goes for the music that appears on wins. But still while you play this slot you feel like you are in an actual casino. The slot has the classic fruits, 7s and bars as symbols.

The game also offers some pretty good features like the free spins. You have to hit minimum 2 scatter symbol in order to get 10 FS, 3 scatter symbol give 15 FS, 4 give 20FS and 5 give 25 FS. Don't be fooled when you see that only 2 scatter symbols grant FS since it is absolutely not easy to get them. But luckily there is a solution for that as well if you are keen to go for it. If you manage to hit 1 scatter symbol, you can keep it and re-spin individual reels to get the second one, which can be worthwhile or not depending on how many balance you spend on getting it and how much it will actually give back. I tried this couple of times on the lowest re-spin cost reel and managed to get it this way. But still unfortunately my balance was quickly lost since I didn't have much to start with.

Overall this is a great old school slot that after some amount of time playing it can get pretty tedious but still it is worth trying out. 7/10
