Popular iGaming software developer Yggdrasil recently added a new title to its already flamboyant video slot portfolio. Reel Desire is a 1980s-themed video slot that transports players back to the days of good old rock and roll.

Commenting at the time of launch, the studio said the 4-row game invites players to jump on the bandwagon in a bid to take home the big bucks. Players have a chance to amplify their stakes by up to 20.480 times. Thus making the game quite volatile.

Yggdrasil further stated that Reel Desire offers 1,024 paylines and is designed to replicate the classic retro disco theme, complete with UV black lamps, disco balls, and shoulder pads. The game offers tons of attractive bonuses to up the ante. Apart from free spins and multipliers, the game awards the top prize for double wilds that spread across the reels.

A Word from the Studio

Jonas Strandman, a Senior Games Strategist at Yggdrasil said that the mobile-friendly title flaunts a pair of free spin modes that can be retriggered. The medium-volatile slot awards five wilds during the base game at random, which are usually followed by four wild icons to further increase the winning potential.

This unique feature is called Reel Desire and is only triggered in the base game. Double Wild symbols can also appear on the reels. This is a sticky symbol and triggers a re-spin and a 2x multiplier. Reel Desire flaunts a 96% RTP and the studio claims the title is designed using its own language and Yggdrasil’s GATI technology.

Yggdrasil’s partners can indigenously develop titles and issue licenses for their intellectual property while utilizing the former’s supplier network for maximum outreach. Strandman’s statement reads,

“Reel Desire comes with substantial winning potential. The game flaunts two distinct and exciting free spins features. The novel Reel Desire feature appears frequently and keeps players on their toes. It can effectively transform into a pay-day for players at a moment’s notice”.

Reel Desire: Bonus Features

Reel Desire flaunts a familiar 5-reel 4-row layout with 1,024 paylines while the buy-in range is between £/€0.25 to £/€75 per spin. The standard pay symbols are neon-lit card studs, while the high-paying icons include hi-top shoes, earrings, and a Casio wristwatch. A fly girl type symbol and wannabe Don Johnson are the highest playing icons and can amplify your stake by 16 to 20 times when appearing across the reels five times.

A cassette tape symbol is the in-game Wild and replaces the low-paying icons. A Double Wild symbol can land between reels 2, 3, and 4 and comes with a 2x multiplier. These symbols are sticky and can trigger a re-spin. The novel Reel Desire feature is a homage to Microgaming’s legendary Immortal Romance video slot.

The ghetto blaster scatter symbol is the final icon in the bunch, and when 3 or more appear across the grid, players get 10 free spins. Landing four or five icons award an additional prize worth 50x or 500x. Players can then choose between one of two free spin modes.
