Retro is in – whether it is hand-crafted solid wood furniture, vinyl records or fashion trends. Now we can add our voice to the retro craze. Classic 3-reel slots are, without a doubt, among the best online casino games at Springbok Casino… and we will tell you why!
Vintage Pieces are Trending… and that Applies to Online Slots
In the current consumer driven economy, nothing is built to last. Appliances, digital devices, shoes and apparel are all manufactured to unravel, unwind and cease operations as soon as the warranty expires. This might be driving the interest in anything old-fashioned and dated… or vintage if you prefer.
We Know What Players at the Best Online Casino Want
As market savvy operators of Springbok Casino – the best online casino as ranked and rated by a host of independents – we are aware of what our players want. In the interests of diversity, we obviously have a broad selection of 5-reel and 6-reel slots with all the hype and entertainment synonymous with the modernised variation of the game.
Classic Means Quality over Quantity
What our selection of classic 3-reel slots may lack in the way of quantity is ably offset by quality. In the context of gambling at the best online casino, quality refers to the payouts, the graphics and the unique features… all of which are inherent in our retro slots.
In reality, our 3-reel slots have the classic reel sets and favourable odds typical of the original one-arm bandits and fruit machines of yesteryear. They also have a few of the ‘oh wow’ elements that have catapulted multiline video slots into a league of their own.
Limited Game Mechanics, Higher Payout Frequencies, Better Odds
Retro slots are the best online casino slots for precisely that reason. They are the perfect combination of ‘then’ and ‘now’. The fact the average win frequency is higher, simply because there are fewer symbols and limited paylines, does not hurt their cause!
A Sample of the Best Online Casino Slots in the Classic Category
How do classic 3-reel slots rock? How about we take an in-depth look at a few of the high hit rate retro slots at Springbok Casino? That way, you can get an idea of what we are really referring to when we talk about the payouts, the features and those creative design touches that are traditionally more ‘video’ than ‘retro’.
Scuba Fishing – A Hot Little Retro Slot with a Respins Feature
Scuba Fishing may not be a classic slot in the strictest sense of the word. The reels are undefined and the symbols float freely with the ocean currents. That said, there are only three reels – but that is basically where the resemblance begins… and ends.
In this hot little number, the Great White Shark is wild and capable of expanding on the second reel to provide three or four figure wins. The keystone marine predator also triggers a respin feature where one of nine symbols is randomly chosen to generate payline permutations… for free!
Win Up to 540 x the Stake
As for the potential payouts, the marlin is the top pay in the base game delivering 300 x the line bet. When the stars are aligned in your favour, you can win up to 540 x the total stake. An available bet range of R0.20 to R100 quickly puts that into perspective.
Besides the potential prizes, Scuba Fishing slot features the kind of animations that would make any game developer proud. The scuba diver turns to face the reels when the wins come in, flapping the fins wildly to stay afloat.
Animated Retro Entertainment Available Here
Our personal favourite as far as animation goes is the Great White Shark. It sweeps onto the middle reel to trigger possible payline wins and the reel respin, before swooping off into the deep again. When you add all the gaming components together, there really is plenty of retro entertainment available at the best online casino in cyberspace!
777 Slot – A Classic Hold Feature Racks Up the Wins
With a classic slot machine configuration and an optional hold feature to accelerate the win frequency, 777 Slot is retro in all the most important ways. Add a wild – which multiplies payline wins by up to 9 x – into the mix and there is clearly a lot of money at stake.
A Super Bet Progressive Jackpot
Wait up! We haven’t even touched on the fact that there is a progressive jackpot and three bet levels to up the ante. When you take all the features together, this RTG 3-reeler has the makings of the best online casino game of all.
Plenty of Options for Players
What differentiates this classic slot from the rest of the genre is the options available to players. You can hold one or two of the reels for as long as you want… but you do have to pay more for the privilege. You can also choose one of three bet levels.
The Wild is the Key
The bet levels – Normal, High and Super Bet – are associated with incrementally higher payouts relating to a full quotient of wilds on the single payline.
The highest available bet level must be in play to qualify for the progressive jackpot prize. When the high or normal bet level is active, you have to be satisfied with 1680 x and 1,000 x the stake, respectively!
Wild Fire 7s – The 3-Reel Slot with a Bonus-Generating 4th Reel
One of the latest additions to the classic gaming stable at Springbok Casino is Wild Fire 7s slot. At first glance it appears to be a conventional 3-reel game. On closer inspection, however, you will notice a small window on the left side of the reel set… and that is a game changer all of its own.
A Bonus Reel Synched to Standard Play
The window is actually a fourth reel featuring an array bonus symbols. It is synched with the other reels. Rather than creating payline wins, it generates win multipliers, free games and – wait for it – a progressive jackpot prize.
Sevens Pay Out the Moola
What is the highest paying standard symbol in Wild Fire 7s slot? It is rather unremarkably the wild fire 7s. Hit three matching symbols across one of five paylines and you will bank 500 x the payline bet. Thereafter the blue and purple sevens pay the next best prizes of 250 x and 100 x the line bet, apiece.
Get Up to 5 x Random Multipliers
Bars and cherries pay for one up to three symbols, so there is always plenty of action on the reels. Throw in the possibility of multipliers up to 5 x corresponding with standard payline wins, and the potential to boost the bankroll is high.
Free Games and a Random Jackpot In-Play
Then, of course, there is always the possibility of hitting a random number of free games, all of which have a 5 x win multiplier in play. Better still, there is a fair chance of landing the constantly accumulating jackpot prize.
When you weigh up all the bonus features, the exciting new retro game has to be a close contender for the best online casino slot, available right here Springbok Casino!
