Classic 243 is a 5 reel, 243 ways slot powered by Microgaming. Available to play from 20p to £40 per spin across tablet, mobile and desktop devices (such as laptops, PCs, Android and iOS), it has an 80s, neon, classic theme as it has a retro feel.

Visually, Classic 243 is rather nice – the retro style graphics sees a fusion of flashy 80’s neon colours and atmospheric futuristic sounds. Symbols on the reels include neon style playing cards (A, K, Q, J and 10) as well as stars, red 7s, bars, diamonds, bells and wilds.

The wild is the highest value symbol giving you 1,000 coins for 5 on a payline – it also replaces all symbols to create winning combinations. The game is rather noisy which is a good thing and offers a seductive gaming experience with big wins possible.

As far as features go, it’s all about the Free Spins feature which is played when you see the free spin symbol anywhere on the reels – this will give you 10 free spins. Now, on each and every single free spin, between 2 and 3 guaranteed stacked wilds will appear on 1 of the 5 reels. If you get 3 or more free spin symbols during the feature on a free spin, you will benefit from an additional 10 free spins taking your total to 20.

Classic 243 is a medium variance title with most of the action coming in the Free Spins feature – this is where the big wins will undoubtedly come from. With wins of up to 5,000 times your stake available, Classic 243 is certainly a game worth considering. For similarly themed outings, NetEnt’s Starburst is a must.
