Robots are attacking the city and there are only two people that can stand against them, Billy and Jesse. Though, they wouldn’t turn down a little help from you. Yes, that’s right, you can help in fighting off robot enemies, landing Wilds, and winning big. It’s all happening in Attack On Retro, the new online pokie from Triple Edge Studios and Microgaming.
Boasting a bright, colourful retro art style, unique gameplay, and a host of special features, Attack On Retro is a dream come true for anyone that grew up in the 80s. Catch it at Gaming Club online casino from the 3rd March 2020, and do your part to defend the city from the robot hoards.
Retro Is Back
At first glance you may think Attack On Retro was stolen straight from the 80s, but you’d be wrong. This is a cutting edge title boasting HD graphics and the latest gameplay systems. The 80s style is very much intentional, with talented artists drawing on 80s nostalgia in order to thrust players back to a time when headbands were cool, robot arms were standard, and pink lasers were the order of the day. It’s all a bit tongue in cheek, but that certainly doesn’t mean this isn’t a top of the range online pokies experience.
In terms of gameplay, you are tasked with eliminating robot symbols, which happens automatically and allows for additional Wilds to be added to the reels. But those robots aren’t going down easy, and the more that are destroyed, the more seem to appear. Keep up the fight and the rewards are substantial.
Special features are based around a Free Spins system, and you are given the option to choose between 3 rewards.
Triple Edge Studios and Microgaming have leaned heavily on the retro style, taking every opportunity to conjure images of classic movies. This extends to the symbols on the reels, with each being nothing short of a hilarious blast from the past.
The higher value symbols include a hoverboard, robot arm, boom box, and keytar. These classic icons are accompanied by the standard, but still 80s stylised playing card icons of J, Q, K and A. As is expected, landing matching symbols on paylines running from left to right will trigger payouts, depending on the value of the combination created.
There are two special symbols that take the form of Wilds and Scatters. Billy and Jesse act as Wilds, while the Free Spins icon stands as the Scatter. Of course, you will want to see as many of these special symbols land on the reels as possible.
But before we get to the robot destroying special features, let’s take a look at the game’s specifics and statistical information.
Under The Hood
Attack On Retro is a 5 reel, 3 row pokies game with 10 fixed paylines. It has an RTP of 95.58%, is high volatility, and the hit rate is 29.19%. The minimum accepted bet is 0.10 coins, and maximum is 20.00 coins per spin. Now let’s take a closer look at how to smash robots, and win big in the process.
Kill The Robots
The first special feature to take note of in Attack On Retro is the expanding random Wilds. During the base game, robots may appear on the reels. If they do, it is time to wage war, and strike them down! Robot icons will automatically be destroyed by a laser, and transformed into additional Wilds. These Wilds will expand to cover the reel, delivering swift justice, and helping you to win big. Bless Billy and Jesse for their swift robot destroying action.
The second special feature is the Free Spins. If 3 Scatters are matched, you are in for a special treat. You will be given a choice between Free Spins options, and are allowed to choose as you see fit. The options are as follows:
- 2 Free Spins with x5 multipliers
- 5 Free Spins with x2 multipliers
- 10 Free Spins with a x1 multiplier
Upon making a choice, the Free Spins will play out automatically. But wait, there’s more. During Free Spins, the random Wilds are still active, meaning that they may strike at any time, drastically increasing winning potential. Additionally, more Free Spins may be claimed if 2 Scatters land at any stage during the bonus round. Never has it been so fun and rewarding to destroy robot invaders.
Join The Fight!
Don’t leave all the fighting to Billy and Jesse! Join them, do your part, and ensure that the city doesn’t fall to the robots. Plus, who knows, maybe if you do especially well you’ll be given a cyborg of your very own.
Attack On Retro goes live at Gaming Club online and mobile casino on the 3rd of March 2020. If you’re ready to step back in time and show those robots no mercy, this could well be the pokies game for you.
