Retro Reels: Extreme Heat released by Microgaming combines retro-style symbols common to mechanical slot machines with some modern slot technologies, adding an exclusive respin feature to open up more possibilities of great payouts. The slot features usual scatters, free spins, wilds and classic symbols providing an experience similar to playing on retro mechanical slots, but with a clear modern twist. A flexible bet size exceeding $100 will suit all bankrolls and betting styles.
The latest addition to the Retro Reels series, Extreme Heat is a five-reel thirty-payline slot with a Vegas-style feel and look. The slot incorporates typical fruit machine symbols such as cherries, bars, sevens, lemons and bells – all adorned with flames of fire. The lowest paying symbols are cherries, with five of them awarding x75 times a bet. Single, double and triple bars pay up to X250 for five of a kind. The most gainful regular symbols are single, double and triple sevens. Get five matching 7s, and be awarded x500 times a line bet.
Some winning combinations can be created by mixed symbols. Three, four or five mixed bars landed on an active payline on adjacent reels starting from the far left reel pay out x5, x20 or x50 respectively. The same goes for sevens.
Before spinning the reels, you can adjust a bet size to suit your budget:
The minimum and maximum bets per spin amount to $0.3 and $112.5, with all the thirty paylines activated.
The automatic spins feature is accessed by clicking the Expert button below the player’s controls. You can select the number of times the reels will spin automatically without your intervention, and choose Stop conditions.Wild symbol
Watch out for the Dollar Sign symbol on the reels because it acts as a wild substituting for other symbols, except for scatters. Apart from being a wild, the Dollar Sign awards a x10,000-coin jackpot if five of them fall on an enabled payline.Scatter and free spins
The Free Spin Bonus symbol represents a scatter. Two or more of them scattered anywhere on the reels award a scatter win of your total bet times x1 to x50. Furthermore, 3+ scatters displayed in any position trigger up to 20 free spins, which quantity is determined by the number of Bonus symbols on the reels. Three, four and five scatters award 10, 15 and 20 free spins accordingly. During the free spins all payouts get doubled.Respin feature
Every time the reels come to a stop in a base game, the Respin button appears under each reel. You have an option to spin again any one of the five reels to try to roll up a missing symbol to create a winning combo. Yet, there is no guarantee that your needed symbol will display on the reel you want to get respun. After clicking a Respin, the selected reel starts spinning, whilst the remainder of the reels stay as they are. Respinning has its price shown for and under each reel.Summary
Retro Reels: Extreme Heat is a 5-reel 30-payline slot designed to suit penny slotters and high-rollers. The Vegas-style symbols will catch the fancy of classic slot fans, while some of its features like free spins, scatters and wilds that are uncommon for classic fruit machines will appeal to gamblers who are accustomed to modern solutions.
