...they boldly decided to take a chance with a retro-styled game and add a little twist to it – a rather futuristic look, as well as some interesting features, unusual for the classic-themed titles!
So, if you are an old-school fan, but are looking for a highly volatile game and decent pay, you are at the right place!
Let's see what exactly this galaxy-themed game has to offer!
Is The Theme Interesting?
Since there is a bit of a retro feel, you will surely get all nostalgic upon loading this neon-lit title, with its 1980s aesthetics, but executed in a modern style.
The second part of the game's title tells us that the whole action is taking place in an outer space shown in the background and supplemented by pastel shades and neon imagery of twinkling stars.
Luckily, the reels are semi-transparent, giving us the chance to see the beautiful light and dark purple space scenery behind, while on them, you will see not very impressive symbols, since the majority of them deviate from the theme.
When it comes to regulars, there are neon A to 10 symbols, as well as bolts, stars, bars, lucky 7s and a prism, while the Wild is presented by a logo and the Scatter shows the "Free Spins" word in an electric futuristic font.
Complementing the whole theme is an electro, Synthwave soundtrack that adds perfectly to the overall action.
What About The Betting Options?
To be transported to space, you first need to choose your wagers that range from 0.2$ to 20$ per spin, which may disappoint the high-risk rollers.
The high-volatile game is played on 5 reels, 3 rows and offers 243 pay lines as well as an RTP of 96.05%, and if you are lucky enough...
...you will walk away with payouts of up to 7,300x the whole stake.
When it comes to symbols, expectedly, on the lower side are 10 to A symbols, rewarding 1x to 1,5x the stake for 5 in combination, while the prism is worth the most – paying up to 30x the stake!
However, overall, you will want to see as many Wilds as possible on the reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 since they act as substitutes, but also three to five Scatters that not only trigger the feature but also pay the most – 100x the bet for five of them on the reel set.
What Special Features Can We Expect?
The best thing about this title is the fact that the developer decided to collaborate with Microgaming, and this cooperation is best seen in its features!
The first to mention is the game's Rolling Reels mechanic that changes the symbols that were part of the winning combo with the new ones, giving punters an extra opportunity to form another win!
Adding to that, the more consecutive winning combinations, the better, since this feature brings another one along with it - the Multiplier Trail feature.
The spinning starts at 1x, but, with each consecutive win, the multiplier increases at 2x, 3x and then 5x, but, should there is no winning spin, the multiplier resets back to 1x.
Finally, you can also have Scatters to appear on the reels, and should that happens on at least three reels, you will be awarded 10 to 20 free spins, while also getting a cash prize.
During the free spins round, the multiplier starts at 2x and could increase up to 15x with each cascade. Besides, should you not hit the winning combination, the multiplier will stay the same or rise.
Moreover, landing three or more Scatter symbols during the bonus round will grant you an extra 5 spins!
What To Conclude?
Not only does Retro Galaxy combine futuristic elements with an 80s look, which is quite popular at the moment, but the game is full of classic Microgaming features as well.
Besides, the gameplay is simple and will appeal to both high and low rollers since the title offers a pretty relaxing session thanks to the solid RTP and high hit rate of 34.41%.
Overall, if you like the classic, retro style, but are also a fan of Microgaming's special features, this title is surely worth trying!
