Retro Reels Extreme Heat by Microgaming
Microgaming has turned up the temperature on its popular Retro Reels slot with a flaming theme and a whole lot more coins in its max jackpot to create Retro Reels Extreme Heat.
Although, like its predecessor, Retro Reels Extreme Heat has five reels and sticks to the traditional fruit machine format, it has a total of 30 paylines and a few other modern features such as free spins rounds and a re-spin button.
The musical highlight of the Retro Reels Extreme Heat rock music soundtrack takes the form of an electric guitar solo, which can be heard every time two or more dollar signs in flames land on an active Retro Reels Extreme Heat payline.
The Retro Reels Extreme Heat visual interface resembles the original Retro Reels layout, with traditional gold bars and fruit symbols, but also has a fiery edge owing to its blazing “7” symbols and the bright orange flames that lick the sides of the chrome, arcade-style console.
Turn up the Heat with Re-Spins
The most impressive Retro Reels Extreme Heat feature is arguably its re-spin button, which also appears in Retro Reels but is still so new that only a limited number of online slots offer it.
The Retro Reels Extreme Heat re-spin button allows players, at an additional fee, to re-spin any one reel whilst the other four remain in place. The price of a re-spin varies in Retro Reels Extreme Heat, depending on how great the chances are that the reel in question will yield a winning combination. The more likely a re-spin is to pay out, the more it will cost.
Players can check the price of the re-spin for each of the reels by viewing the amounts indicated beneath them.
The Wild Symbol has Money to Burn
One of the ways in which Retro Reels Extreme Heat differs from other games in the Retro Reels series is that it has a wild symbol. In Retro Reels Extreme Heat, the wild symbol is a flaming dollar sign and can stand in place of any other symbol except the scatter symbol to complete winning combinations.
The wild dollar sign is also the most valuable symbol in Retro Reels Extreme Heat – when five of these appear in an active payline, the single-spin jackpot of 10 000 coins will pay out.
The Scatter Symbol Brings Free Spins
The other highly valuable symbol in Retro Reels Extreme Heat is the blue and orange “Free Spin Bonus” sign. This is also the game’s scatter symbol, which yields payouts regardless of where it appears on the reels, as long as there are two or more of them.
When three or more Retro Reels Extreme Heat Free Spin Bonus signs appear, players receive free spins – five for each scatter symbol landed to a maximum of 25 free spins. All wins on free spins also receive a 2x multiplier.
Up to 400 000 Coins in the Offing
With the Retro Reels Extreme Heat max bet set at 15 coins per payline and coin denominations ranging from 0.01 to 0.25, the highest possible payout is 200 000 coins in the base game and 400 000 during free spins.
