New Retro Online Pokie From Microgaming

After the regular releases at the beginning of February, Microgaming launched a third online video pokie titled Classic 243 at New Zealand online casinos like Casino Mate, All Jackpots and Royal Vegas. Classic 243 is a video pokie from Rabcat Gaming, with whom Microgaming has a sharing arrangement.

Classic 243 is a retro themed video pokie. These pokies use symbols from classic pokies in a 5x3 reels structure and are becoming very popular because of visual suitability for mobile gaming. In Classic 243 the high paying symbols are Wild logo, bell, diamond, bar, 7 and star, which have been given a modern 3D look. The Wild logo and the bell award the highest line payouts, with a combination of five symbols paying 1,000 times the line bet. The low paying symbols are the usual playing card icons crafted like neon lights.

The main bonus feature in Classic 243 is a set of free spins feature. 10 free spins are triggered when three or more Free Spins logos land anywhere on the reels. In each free spin either two or three reels will be stacked with wild symbols. This should lead to attractive payouts, especially if the first two or three reels turn wild. The free spins can be retriggered in the usual manner.

Classic 243 online pokie also includes a Gamble Game, which is visually very different from the standard Microgaming Gamble Game. You have the choice of activating the feature after any winning spin or you can collect your payout and move to the next spin. Your entire payout will be staked in the Gamble Game. Two rhombi will be displayed on the screen and you have to pick one of them. If the chosen rhombus starts revolving then the staked amount is doubled. You can repeat the Gamble Game up to five times provided you keep winning.

Classic 243 is a 243 ways to win online pokie with the total bet per spin only 20 times the line bet. Though this seems great at first but you have to factor in that there are not too many features in the video pokie. The line bet can be varied from NZ$0.01 to NZ50.00. The maximum total bet per spin goes up to NZ$1,000. This will bring in the high rollers at the Microgaming online casinos.

Microgaming has also announced three new video pokies for March. Pollen Party and Emperor of the Sea are expected to launch on March 1 and The Heat is On will be released later in the month.
