Retro Reels was released to Microgaming casinos on November 9th 2010. This new slot, featuring symbols from classic slot machines like bars and sevens, has 5 reels, 20 paylines, and a free spins feature. It, along with Reel Gems, includes a brand new respin feature. You can pay a certain amount to respin one reel at a time after the initial spin is complete. Even if you line up 5 of a kind, you can respin one of the reels to try for it again.
Free spins are triggered when two or more “5 Free Spins” symbols land on the reels during a spin. Each symbol awards 5 free spins, so if five land on the reels during a spin you are awarded 25 free spins. All wins during free spins are doubled and free spins can be retriggered.
The respin feature can be good on this slot sometimes, and it can be bad other times, same as with Reel Gems. I find it can be a little better on this slot because symbols that don’t exactly match, like different colored 7’s and different amounts of bars on the Bar symbols. You can even line up 5 of a kind more than once on the reels. Just don’t try to spin in one of the jackpot symbols for 5 of a kind unless you are feeling very lucky. It is very expensive to do so and it’s a rare symbol, so hitting it on your first or second respin isn’t very likely.
See the screenshots below for paytable information, and check back in the future to see if I’ve been lucky enough to add a nice winning screenshot.
