New Online Slot Attack On Retro Coming Soon
If you grew up in the 1980s and have a soft spot for neon colours, side ponytails and punk with a side of excess attitude, Attack On Retro is for you. This new online slot is a collaboration between Triple Edge Studios and Microgaming, following African Quest and their other successful joint releases. As always, Ruby Fortune is the best place to play this online slot after it launches on the 3rd of March 2020. Interested? Read on below to find out more.
Futuristic Slots Warfare
Both Triple Edge Studios and Microgaming are known for developing detailed online slots, with clever themes that really engage their players. That’s definitely the case in Attack On Retro, which is set in a future where the past culture of the 1980s happens to be very popular.
The year is 2187 and Retro City, home to the game’s heroes Billy and Jesse, is under serious attack. Billy, Jesse and yourself have to save the urban sprawl. Technology has come a long way; Billy even has a bionic arm, but there are also plenty of accents from the 1980s.
Imagine a dystopian version of the future seen in the Back to the Future II film, and you’ll have a good idea of the atmosphere of this new online slot. All background graphics and reel symbols are inspired by this theme, down to the low-value playing cards done in bright lights and an old-school font.
The higher-value icons include an electronic keyboard, a boom box, a bionic hand, which may or may not be Billy’s, and a hoverboard. Behind the reels a lit-up city is awash with acid colours while the background soundtrack takes the retro-futuristic motif even further.
Of course, crisp graphics and innovative storylines alone are not enough to impress serious online slots enthusiasts. The gameplay itself also has to be exciting, with the potential of some really big-ticket rewards, and Attack On Retro delivers on these fronts too.
Bet as little as 0.1 or as much as 20.00 coins on the 10 fixed paylines, which are spread out over 5 reels and 3 rows. The top jackpot is 5,000x your total stake, or as much as 100,000 coins, and with a payout rate of 95.58%, a 29.19% hit frequency, and a high volatility level the game is nail-bitingly exciting.
Like all of the latest cutting edge slots, Attack On Retro has been designed to run smoothly on desktop and mobile. You can play online or on the go, whenever you choose.
Wilds Go the Extra Mile
The Wild Symbols in Attack On Retro are our 2 protagonists, Billy and Jesse, in all their cyberpunk glory. They can stand in for regular icons and help create paying combinations, but they also do a whole lot more. In fact, the Wilds are more involved here than in most other online slots we’ve seen.
The Wilds will also appear stacked, revealing Jesse and Billy standing tall on Reels 1 and 5 during the free spins bonus round. They remain locked in place for the duration of the free spins, helping you secure even more payouts. Most excitingly of all, this new online slot has a randomly triggered feature called Random Wilds in the base and the bonus games.
Random Wilds will fully engage you, as up to 15 robots fill the reels. You need to try and shoot them with a laser, and when you do, the robot will become a Wild. The spins carry on in the meantime, but with extra Wilds to create more wins. Up to 15 Wilds can eventually fill your screen!
As well as hardworking Wilds, Attack On Retro’s Scatters also do more than these symbols usually do in other online slots. A simple inverted triangle with the words “FREE SPINS” in a very 1980s, Robocop-type font, the Scatter activates the free spins round when 3 or more land anywhere on the reels at the same time.
When this happens, you get to choose whether you want 10, 5 or 2 free spins with multipliers of 1x, 2x and 5x, respectively, applied to whatever you win. Landing 2 Scatters within the bonus round will trigger 5 extra free spins, at the same multiplier value.
Respins To Reward You
But wait, because Attack On Retro is still not done. This truly is the new online slot that keeps on giving, down to the respins that are possible after every round of the regular game. For different stakes you can pay to have the reel of your choice spun again while the rest of them are kept still. If you’re just a symbol off from a big win, this can help you get there.
Oh, one more thing; during the respins up to 3 Wilds can appear on a reel and the payout rate jumps to 96.08%. Just another way you can win big when you go on the retro attack!
