Read through our article to learn more about the winning possibilities and the features of this fun slot.
This video slot really has written 80s all over it. With the bright neon colors and the exciting electronic background sounds, we couldn’t help but think back.
The 1980s were a time when video home consoles really made their way into the homes of millions of kids and teenagers (and adults, let’s be honest, everybody loved a good jump’n run). It also made music portable, whether it was a boombox (that ran through 6 huge batteries in less than two hours) or the even more portable Walkman – we could finally take our favorite music on the go.
And what a decade for music it was! Michael Jackson, Madonna, Duran Duran and Prince all were at the height of their careers and the birth of new wave and synthpop made for some great disco nights out.
And let’s not forget the colors! The brighter, the better. Neon was all the rage and all of that and much more is the feeling that Classic 243 conveys in a convincing fashion.
As we have already mentioned, this is a video slot with 5 reels and 243 ways to win. This means that, instead of traditional paylines, you have winning combinations paying out over the reels from left to right.
We love the bright and vibrant neon sign style of the symbols, which consist of 10 to ace for the low paying symbols and a star, a lucky number 7, a bar symbol, a diamond, and a bell for the high paying symbols.
Then you also have the wild symbol, of course, which will replace all other symbols, except the pink free spin symbol for the best winning combination.

Explore Classic 243 Symbols
A round of 10 free spins gets triggered, every time you land three or more pink free spin symbols on your reels. You can hear the music picking up excitedly when two symbols have already landed, and the remaining reels are still spinning, to reveal if you’ll be lucky enough to land a third one.
During the free spin round, each spin will feature 2-3 guaranteed stacked wilds on your reels. This will increase the chances for a win immensely.
The free spins can also be retriggered during the free spin round, so you’re really in for a treat.
Every time you hit a winning combination, you have the choice to either take the win or try and multiply it with the gamble feature.
You might want to consider this, because you have a 50/50 chance of doubling your win with each decision. You’ll choose between two neon rectangles and if the one you chose flashes, you’ll win. You can even keep going up to five times for each win, but if you’re wrong just once, the whole win is gone.
So, choose wisely. This feature really adds some excitement to the gameplay, so use it frequently.
Payouts and Wagering Limits
One spin with the lowest coin value in Classic 243 will only cost you $0.20, but you can also only go as high as $40. Having this as your maximum bet, means that you get to spin more with your budget, but we must admit, that we’re used to higher maximum bets nowadays.
With a medium volatility, the slot will bring you mid-range wins on an average amount of spins and the RTP of 97% ensures a nice payout. The maximum win might “only” be $40,000, but you have to keep in mind that this is still a thousand times your maximum bet. So, we can’t really be too disappointed about this.
Those stats make for a truly mass-appealing slot.
Vibrant colors, energetic music and a strong feeling of nostalgia – what more can you ask from a video slot?
We’re truly in love with Classic 243 and get wait to get another round in and enjoy the simple, yet exciting feel of the slot.
If you have lived through the 80s or even just have an appreciation for the pop culture of that decade, we can only recommend, you take this baby for a spin.
