Easy to Understand (10)
Though Retro reels has a completely new concept of Respin, the functioning is easy to understand thanks to simple explanations in the rules and appropriate messages while playing.
Graphics & Sounds (8)
The graphics and audio effects in Retro Reels are excellent. Animations have become an integral part of video slots, and at least the more important symbols are expected to be animated in winning combinations. Hence the absence of animations will be felt.
Theme and Concept (10)
The retro theme of classic slot machines has been well conceived and executed. The overall layout and graphics and the selection and styling of icons are perfect. All the symbols have thematic value and high value card symbols have been avoided. The payouts for any Sevens and any Bars enhances the value of the theme. Retro Reels is a perfect blend of classic and video slots.
Game Features (9)
There are some excellent game features in Retro Reels and some disappointments as well. The high point is the Respin feature, which is a new introduction from Microgaming. It comes at an extra cost but can lead to big wins and will be loved by risk taking players. It also makes the slot game interactive, which is a big bonus. Free spins being triggered by only two scatter symbols is also a plus point. On the negative side are the absence of a wild symbol and the absence of a bonus game on the second screen.
Betting Options (10)
The betting options are suitable for both low rollers and high rollers. The key parameters are 20 coins per payline and a maximum coin size of 0.25 credits. This leads to the maximum total bet per spin of 100.00, which no one can complain about.
Retro Reels does not offer a progressive jackpot. But the highest fixed jackpot pays out 10,000 coins in the base game and 20,000 coins in the free spins. With the largest coin size the payout in the free spins amounts to 100,000.00 credits, which is larger than the progressive jackpot in many online slots.
