Graphics and Theme
This game looks as if it’s been inspired by the likes of popular TV favourites such as Netflix’s Stranger Things or the more classic Back to the Future Trilogy. The graphics are both lively and colourful, donning bright pinks, blues and purples reminiscent of what jukeboxes at the time we’re styled like. With a backdrop that’s of outer space including blinking galaxy formations, shooting stars and lightning bolts plus a moving laser-like dancefloor, it’s hard to deny that this game is visually superb.
The background music fits the gameplay nicely and is a spacey synth-style soundtrack that accompanies you through the entirety of your spinning session. Hit the spin button, and the synth soundtrack becomes more energetic and has a higher tempo, bringing you a night-out vibe and gearing you up for a great experience to win lots of cash.
The symbols in this game range from neon pink A, K, Q, J and ten royals to stars, BARs, lightning bolts and 7’s. You’ve also got a prism symbol which is the highest paying of the game, and pink and silver WILD and FREE SPINS symbols.
The neon pink Wild symbol can replace all symbols except the scatter symbols on Retro Galaxy. It’s worth noting that the wild symbol can’t appear on reel 1 in the base game or free spins bonus.
The silver neon Free Spins scatter can show up anywhere it chooses on the rolling reels during the base game. During the free spins round, it can only appear on reels 1, 3 and 5.
Rolling Reels Feature
Once you’ve landed a winning combination, the Rolling Reels feature starts. The winning symbols are removed and replaced by fresh, new symbols, and this can lead to consecutive rolling wins. It’s a typical feature of many Microgaming slots.
The multiplier trail is available in both the base and free spins game. The base game multiplier starts at 1x and progresses to the max 5x on the 3rd spin. During the free spins round, the max increases to an amazing 15x with each cascade.
To activate the free spins round, you’ll need to land 3-5 scatter symbols. In this round, you’re in with a chance to win 20x your stake and ten free spins, 100x your stake and 15 free spins or 1000x your stake and 20 free spins respectively, and your game can also be enhanced by the multiplier. As previously mentioned, this multiplier starts at 2x and goes all the way up to a huge 15x with each rolling reel. Land an extra 3 scatters in this game, and you will be given an extra five free spins.

To win on Retro Galaxy, you’ll need three or more matching symbols on successive reels. This slot game has five reels, three rows and 243 ways to win and the prism symbol is the highest paying giving you 10, 20, 100 or 300x your stake for 2,3,4, or 5-of-a-kind.
