Classic 243 is a Microgaming slot with five reels and 243 ways to win. The game takes inspiration from the 1980’s, particularly 80’s video games. So fans of the Tron movie and games from that era would find this slot highly enjoyable. The game is compatible with every device, from 20p to £40 a spin across tablet, desktop, iOS, mobile devices.
With its 80’s neon styled retro theme, it gives every gamer a unique experience on every spin. The game has quite the futuristic feel to it but that in no way affects its new feel and freshness.
The Classic 243 slot is excellent all round, and the first feature to really take note of is the Wild symbol and this is shown by the Classic 243 logo. It depicts the word “Wild” within a bright yellow frame. It replaces all symbols but the Scatter Symbol.
There are five symbols on the neon style playing cards (A, K, Q, J and 10) including stars, red 7s, diamonds, bars, bells, and wilds. The Wild is the symbol with the highest value on the Classic 243, and it contains about 1000 coins for being able to land 5 of these symbols on a payline – it substitutes all symbols to create winning combinations. The scatter symbol is depicted by the word “Free Spins” and say you land 3 or more of these symbols along the reel, you would trigger the Free Spins bonus game. In the Free Spins bonus feature, you get ten free spins with 2-3 stacked Wilds for every spin. If you can execute three or more Scatter symbols within this feature you will be given ten extra Free Spins. This feature is the main highlight of the game as there are several opportunities for big payouts when you use your Free Spins and stacked Wilds wisely.
The last notable feature of this game is the Gamble feature. The Gamble feature is activated when you form a winning combination on the reels by selecting the right glowing rectangles, if you choose them correctly then your winnings will be doubled, and you get a maximum of 5 picks for this feature. However, you must ensure you’re selecting carefully because if you choose the wrong rectangle, all your winnings will be forfeited and you will be taken back to the main game.
Visually, the Classic 243 is perfect. Its retro style graphics fuses flashy 80’s neon colours and atmospheric futuristic sounds. The game is quite noisy and in a way, is a good thing. It offers an enchanting gaming experience where big wins are possible. The music is excellent and features many futuristic and electronic sounds which are in line with the theme of the game.
The game has an excellent RTP of 97% and a nice jackpot of 1000 coins. It has about 243 paylines and is a unique combo of flashy 80’s neon colours complimented with unique futuristic sounds. One excellent addition to this game is the free spins feature, and it is rather pleasing to know that that it can be re-triggered. The slot is of average volatility, and although it lacks in some features, the presentation alone is enough to get anyone attracted to the game. With wins of up to 5000 times your stake possible, Classic 243 is no doubt a game worth considering. You can play the Classic 243 at Energy Casinos, Casino Room or Video Slots.
