Next in the paytable are sevens, a combination of these will bring you up to 500 or 250 coins – depending on the colour of sevens. Next highest paying symbols are the ‘BAR’, bell icons and lemons. For lines with these you can win up to 250 coins. Finally, the lowest winnings are on cherries, up to 200 coins, and on any seven, up to 100 coins, or any ‘BAR’ symbol, up to 75 coins.
There are 30 active lines in Retro Reels Extreme Heat which will give you plenty of chances to win combinations on every spin. You need to catch at least 3 of the same symbols in one of the lines to get your payout.

Retro Reels boasts not only an interesting base game, but also exciting additional features that make the slot even more exciting. First, of course, is the Wild symbol, which substitutes for all other icons except the Scatter. Payouts for any Wild combinations are doubled. The Scatter is the symbol labelled ‘Bonus’. This symbol does not depend on the active lines and will pay out winnings on a minimum of 2 such icons in any position on the reels. For 5 Scatter’s you will get 100X of the bet amount. In addition, 3 or more Scatter’s activate the free spins feature. You’ll get 10 to 20 spins, and if you’re lucky you could hit the jackpot. Finally, there’s the re-spin feature. After each spin, you can restart a reel – the price of such action is indicated below it. This feature is not available during free spins.
