Playtech Retro Rush Slot Review

Retro Rush: Demo

Retro Rush is an exciting 5 reel, 30 payline slot game from Playtech. Highlights here include streak respins which trigger following every winning spin and the free spins round on 60-payline reels with expanding wilds. In both instances, wild multipliers can send payouts rocketing by up to 5x. Play on your computer, tablet or mobile from between 15p and £300 per spin.

Looks a bit like Blade Runner

Its name might be Retro Rush but there’s a futuristic look to the visuals here. The background is made up of a tightly packed Asian cityscape that’s filled with neon lights. Combined with the rhythmical, synth-heavy soundtrack it gives a pacey feel to the action.

Joining the lower value A to 10 royals are 5 character symbols. The most rewarding of the quintet is the mysterious mastermind figure. Land 3, 4 or 5 of these in combination for an award of 1.6, 5 or 20 times your bet level.

Sticky Wins

Central to the action in Retro Rush is the Sticky Wins feature. This streak respin bonus is activated following every winning spin. The successful symbols from the triggering spin are held and the reels spin again. The respins continue as long as a new matching symbols joins a winning combination.

2x, 3x and 5x wild multipliers

If a wild lands on the first, second and fourth respins in the Sticky Wins feature, you’ll bring a multiplier of 2x, 3x or 5x into play.

H2: 5 free spins on 60 payline reels

Land the scatter symbol (the carton of Chinese food) on reels 2, 3 and 4 on the same spin and your reward is 5 free spins in the Free Games feature. These take place on a new set of expanded reels. Here you’ll find 60 rather than the usual 30 paylines active.

The Sticky Wins feature is active during the free spins, just like in the base game. Land a wild on 1 of the respins and it expands to fill the entire as well as providing a multiplier boost.

Cracking all-round slot

There’s plenty to enjoy about Retro Rush. The comic book design is excellent. The gameplay matches the classy sound and visuals too. The Sticky Win feature delivers plenty of action and can really get things moving during the free spins round – with a maximum win amount of 600 x bet per respin or free spin, the 5x multiplier can give you 3,000 x bet wins. In the Free Games feature, double the paylines can lead to 6,000 x bet payouts on each free spin.

By the way, the RTP is 96.1%. This slot doesn’t really have the Retro feel of its name but it can certainly deliver a mighty Rush. If it’s respins and multipliers you’re after, Play ‘N Go’s Crystal Sun would be my choice.
