Revamped at Virgin Games - retro slotsTuesday, Jul 25, 2017 09:56
Virgin Games, licensed through Sir Richard Branson's Virgin Enterprises, is well-known for its sleek website design, its innovative technology and state-of-the-art 3D games. The British company is among the most modern gambling companies on the market. This makes it even more surprising to find retro-inspired and almost forgotten video games at Virgin Games.
Retro is on trend
Considering that most people are nostalgic and love the idea of playing games long forgotten by others, Virgin Games' selection of retro slots appears a stroke of entrepreneurial genius rather than a tad bit old-fashioned. One such game, Reel Rush by NetEnt may look retro (it comes with archetypal fruit symbols and quirky music), but it also provides players with a vast array of features and huge prizes. Let's face it, most of the retro-slots available at Virgin Games are merely retro on the outside and wow players with its features on the inside.
Top retro-inspired slots at Virgin Games
Who doesn't know Starburst by NetEnt? Some may argue that this slot isn't retro. However, it comes with all the features we consider retro in a game: Starburst comes with stars, funky tunes and features plain graphics rather than fancy 3-D elements. In short, it's as simple as your typical Las Vegas slot machine and combines this with an intergalactic 90ies-theme.
Neon Staxx, also available at Virgin Games, takes players back to the 80ies. The NetEnt slot comes in an immense amount of neon colours and the music reminds players of retro tunes, such as My Sharona by The Knack.
Next up in our list of favourite retro slots at Virgin Games is the fabulous Twin Spin. This slot machine is a huge surprise. At first, its classic symbols make you believe that this slot is little but a typical fruit machine. Upon second glance though (that is as soon as you start the game), you will realise what's behind the name Twin Spin. Twin Spin is a state-of-the-art slot that comes with a feature that lets two reels spin at the same time. This also means that a player's chance at winning the 270,000 coins prize is doubled.
The Star Trek slot at Virgin Games is a highlight for anyone born in the 80ies. Star Trek Red Alert by Williams Interactive has translated the TV show into a slot game in style. The symbols bring back memories to lovers of the show and the game's features aren't to be sneezed at either. Three or more scatter symbols activate the Red Alert Feature and award players a medal which could result in an unlimited number of spins.
