Although it remains true to the Retro Reels series’ homage to vintage Vegas-style slots, Retro Reels Extreme Heat has an added element of edginess. Essentially, Microgaming has taken the original Retro Reels slot and set it on fire, with orange and red flames licking the sides of the chrome console and smothering the “7” symbols.
With the burning Retro Reels Extreme Heat logo emblazoned across the top of the screen the five reels with three lines spin – to the chinking sound of metal against metal – a total of 30 paylines. In addition to the flaming Sevens, Retro Reels Extreme Heat symbols include all the traditional fruits – such as cherries and lemons – and bars from classic fruit machines.
The heat of the flames is intensified by the rock music that plays in the background, with a high-pitched electric guitar solo bursting from the speakers each time two or more dollar signs appear on an active Retro Reels Extreme Heat payline.
A 30 Bet Max for a 200 000 Payout
Betting options range from one to 15 coins per payline in Retro Reels Extreme Heat and coin values start at 0.01 and go up to 0.25. The maximum possible payout in the Retro Reels Extreme Heat base game is 200 000 coins and 400 000 in the free spins round.
The jackpot for a single spin is set at 10 000 coins, which is awarded if players land five dollar symbols in an active payline.
The Flaming Dollar Sign is Wild
Unlike other games in the Retro Reels series, Retro Reels Extreme Heat does have a wild symbol and it comes in the form of a flaming dollar sign. As per the norm, the wild symbol can substitute any other symbol except the scatter to complete winning paylines.
As mentioned, the dollar sign is also the most valuable Retro Reels Extreme Heat symbol as five of these in an active payline will pay out the 10 000 coin jackpot.
Free Spins Bonus Rounds
In addition to the wild, Retro Reels Extreme Heat has another very valuable symbol that players should be on the lookout for – the scatter. In this game, the scatter symbol is the blue and orange “Free Spin Bonus” sign.
As the title suggests, the Free Spin Bonus sign yields free spins if three or more appear on the Retro Reels Extreme Heat reels. Players receive five free spins for every scatter landed to a maximum of 25 free spins and all wins in these rounds are doubled. The highest possible payout in the Retro Reels Extreme Heat is 440 000 coins.
In addition, scatter symbols have a value of their own and, unlike the other symbols, they don’t have to appear in an active payline to pay out. As long as there are two or more of them anywhere on the reels, a payout will occur at phone casino South Africa.
Retro Reels Extreme Heat Re-Spin Feature
Like its siblings in the Retro Reels family, Retro Reels Extreme Heat also includes an optional re-spin feature. This allows players to re-spin any one reel after every spin at an additional cost. The cost of a re-spin is not always the same and is directly proportional to the likelihood that the selected slot will land a winning combination in Retro Reels Extreme Heat.
