Retro Style from EGT: Slot Review - for lovers of vintage cars
This slot is all about vintage cars so if you are a bit of a car aficionado then you have come to the right garage!
It’s a throwback to the 1960s when cars were a big indication of wealth and success. The game title certainly suits the slot as everything is displayed in a retro style and it has a real classy look.
The game has 5 reels, 20 paylines, and features free spins, progressive jackpots as well as a gamble option.
The first thing feature worth mentioning is the Wild symbol which is denoted by a rather wealthy looking man. This symbol substitutes for all other symbols except the Scatter symbol which is displayed by a fancy looking car wheel. If you land a winning combination with at least one Wild symbol then your winnings are doubled.
If you land 3 or more Scatter symbols anywhere along then reels then you will trigger the Free Spins round. This feature awards you with free spins depending on how many Scatter symbols you land. For instance, if you land 3 then you will get 15 free spins, whereas if you land 5 Scatter symbols then you will get 25 free spins! A 3X multiplier is also applied to these spins so this gives ample opportunities for some huge payouts! Free spins can be retriggered depending on landing 3 or more Scatter symbols while in the Free Spins game.
There is also a Gamble feature. This is triggered when you form a winning combination on the reels and it involves guessing the colours of red or black of some random playing cards. If you guess the colour correctly then your win is doubled but choose your colour wisely as if you guess incorrectly then you will lose your current winnings and be taken back to the main game.
The last feature to highlight is the 4 progressive jackpots which are displayed just above the main game at the top of the screen. These jackpots can be won at any time, regardless of what is happening in the game.
Theme, Graphics and Sound
The game warps you back to the heydeys of some classic cars. Right from the start, you are presented with a courtyard full of cars in the background of the game so the owner must have earned a pretty penny over the years!
The car symbols are wonderfully illustrated and move smoothly along the reels and they really pop when you land a winning combination. I enjoyed watching the owner of the cars coolly smoke his pipe when you land a Wild Symbol win!
There is not too much music to this game as it is more focused on sound effects. Expect to hear lots of bangs and thuds as the reels spin but the odd piece of music pops up when you land a winning combination or are taken to the Free Spins feature.
