The RTP (return to player percentage) is set at a standard level - 96%. A beautiful animation, fun music, a unique design, interesting bonuses, simple rules, as well as high coefficients of payments make this slot machine popular.
Review and recommendations from the testers team
This time, Endorphina did not create a clone of one of their former slot machines; they took Fruit Coctail slot from Igrosoft as a basis and created Retromania slot machine with completely similar gameplay.
- In this slot, the player is offered 9 pay lines, with payouts in both directions and a bonus game feature. This is one of the few slots from Endorphina, in which you can, not play on every pay lines (9), but on 1-3; therefore two strategies of the game are possible.
- So, those players who prefer the doubling game and risk when they don’t only see the dealer's 2nd or 3rd card, but also cards with higher values, it makes sense to play with 1 or 3 pay lines, with higher bets (for example, 1 pay line with a bet on pay line 10, instead of 9 pay lines with a bet on pay line 1) in order to double larger amounts in the risk game. The average win on such a strategy is 5-20 bets, less often, the slot gives out less than 5 bets and more expensive combinations worth 50-100 bets, and the real maximum win, in my opinion, is no more than 500-1000 bets, despite the 5000 bets stated by the manufacturer. With this strategy, of course, the issuance of winning combinations doesn’t often happen, and because of the sometimes lengthy series of spins, the slot extremely poorly keeps the balance. At the same time, there is a great potential to get a big win when an expensive combination is issued or several doublings of the win in a risk game.
- To the players who prefer not to play the risk game, but like to increase the balance by only getting bonus games, it is recommended to play 9 pay lines in order to more often produce low-cost winning combinations, and, accordingly, to better keep the balance while waiting for the bonus game. The average win according to this strategy is 0.5–2 bets, less often the slot gives out combinations of less than 0.5 bets, as well as combinations of 5–10 bets, and the real maximum win is 50–100 (the manufacturer stated a maximum of 555 bets).
- This slot gives a bonus game quite often, and usually in several series almost in a row. Retrigger is not provided in this slot, and you can get 1-2 additional chances only by issuing the fourth and fifth scatter symbols in the main game. The bonus game is presented in the form of 3 reels in the centre, in which for each start 3 game symbols are issued, as well as a frame around the perimeter in which the game symbol is selected randomly. If the characters match, it is paid at the specified ratio (from 2 to 100 bets). Spins occur as long as the random selection in the frame does not hit the existing character. The average bonus win is usually around 40-120 bets, sometimes the slot gives out less than 20 bets or a bonus game with no win. The maximum win obtained during testing was 200+ bets, which is probably the limit of this slot since winning 500-1000 bets in the bonus game is impossible.
- The risk game in this slot is a card (classic) game.
Retromania slot machine may not be a bad option for playing with bonus money and fulfilling wagering requirements. While playing with real money, due to the two strategies of the game, the slot will suit almost all types of players, which is not typical for Endorphina, since the largest part of their slots has high variance.
You need to identify with the choice of stake per spin. First, how many lines will participate in the game (maximum 9) and how many coins you decide to put on each line (maximum 10). As a result, the highest stake is 90 coins. In addition, we draw your attention to a standard principle of forming the pay lines, for which you will receive the following rewards:
- Girl will replace all symbols, except Typewriter and will deposit your account by 100, 500 and 2000 coins.
- Typewriter will bring you the maximum winnings - 200, 1000 and 5000 coins.
- Record player will give you 30, 100 and 500 coins.
- Old phone will return 20, 50 and 200 coins.
- Camera will be able to return from 10 to 100 coins.
- Cassette will bring you the reward of 5, 10 and 50 coins.

The yellow star symbol is the scatter and a bonus activator. A special roulette will appear on the screen. 3 reels are placed in the centre, and the symbols are around them. A roller moves in a circle, and the reels spin. If the selected symbol completes a combination in the centre after stopping 3 reels, the player will receive a multiplication of this total bet. So you can win 2, 4, 10, 20, 50, 70 and 100 total bets. When you are on x, the game will be ended or 1 life will be taken. By the way, 3, 4 and 5 scatters who triggered the bonus feature, will give you these lives. You will get 1, 2 or 3 lives.
