As an old school online slot game, Retro Galaxy has all the usual bonus features – the wild symbol, scatters and free spins. There’s also the rolling reels feature with multiplier trails that come in to play during both the base game and the free spins round. Let’s take a closer look at what these bonus features do.
Appearing on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 in both base game and free spins, the neon pink wild symbol has the job of replacing all symbols except scatters in the Retro Galaxy slot.
The free spins neon scatter symbol can show up anywhere on the rolling reels in the base game, but only on reels 1, 3 and 5 during the free spins round.
During the base game, and in free spins, you’ll benefit from the game’s multiplier trail. The base game multiplier starts at 1x and progresses to 2x on the first roll, 3x on the second and to the max 5x on the 3rd roll. During the free spins round, the multiplier starts at 1x and increases up to 15x with each cascade.
You’ll need to spin at least 3 scatter symbols into view to activate the game’s free spins round. On top of possible 10, 15 or 20 free spins, your play will also be enhanced with the multiplier. As mentioned earlier, it starts with 2x and increases up to a maximum 15x with each rolling reel occurrence. Landing 3 more scatters during this round will grant you an extra 5 free spins.
While the slot does not contain any jackpots for you to win, this doesn’t mean you can’t garner large payouts from it – the top reward you can obtain here is 7,300x your stake.
The RTP rate of the Retro Galaxy slot game stands at 96.05%, which is perfectly in line with the industry average. Though the high volatility means less frequent wins, they will be profitable awards.
If you’re after classic neon-infused online games, you’ll find them readily available at Microgaming sites such as our trusted Betsson or Leo Vegas. As well as hosting the developer’s games, they offer regular new player bonuses too, so be sure to check these out when signing up.
