Enjoy some classic, retro-style action in Golden Reel, another from fruit machine re-booter extraordinaire, Novomatic. This re-tread is a 5 reel, 4, row 40 payline slot that comes with classic visuals, a free spins round and a chance to win a big progressive jackpot. Play from between 40p and £100 per spin.

Golden Reel is about as old school you can get in a 2017 online slot - the reels have a classic look and will be instantly recognisable to anyway who's ever ventured into an arcade or casino.

The plain black reels include cherries, oranges, plums and lemons which award up to double your total stake. They're followed by melons and grapes which will get you 2.5 times your stake if you land 5 on a payline. Next comes the triple bars which pay almost 4 times your stake.

Best of the standard symbols is the lucky red 7 - a 5-of-a-kind combo awards 5 times your total bet. Those payouts may not seem particularly generous but symbols can land fully stacked offering the chance to create multiple winning lines on the same spin.

More interesting is the jester who is the game's wild - this grinning joker can leave you smiling as he offers payouts of up to 25 times your total bet as well as substituting for everything apart from the scatter. He's also instrumental in triggering the progressive jackpot. Fill the reels with 20 wild jester symbols and you'll trigger the big one.

Golden Reel also comes with a Free Games feature - to trigger it, you'll need to land 3 or more of the golden bar symbol anywhere on the reels on the same spin. 3 will get you a payout worth double your total stake. 4 scatters pay 20 times your stake. A full 5 awards 200 times your stake.

In all cases, you'll be awarded 10 free spins. Helping you on your way on each free spin is a new reel 3 which includes only wilds or scatters only. 3 or more scatters on the same free spin and you can look forward to another round of 10 free spins giving you 20 in total.

This is just the type of slot we associate with Novomatic - it's no thing of beauty and there's nothing particularly innovative on offer as far as features are concerned. What it does offer in spades is plenty of old school action - this is as close to a classic fruity you'll find. If you're after some retro thrills that can deliver some tasty jackpots, the Golden Reel fits the bill nicely. Alternatively, the mobster-themed Chicago is highly recommended.
