Neon lights, electronic music and catwalk models all feature in RTG’s High Fashion pokies. While the styles shown might have already changed, there is little doubt about the world this theme explores. A designer – complete with big hair – can be found on the reels, along with male and female models. You’ll also find a lot of props from the modelling world.
There are two different free spins bonuses to enjoy. Both involve the models, with different rules depending on which you trigger. As with many RTG pokies, a progressive jackpot can drop at random after any spin. Here are the key features that make the High Fashion pokies beautiful:
In the base game you will see models on reels 1 and 5. There are male and female variations, which have short animations. These are wild symbols. They substitute for everything except the ‘runway’ scatters. Any win you create using these wilds – which can be stacked – get a 2x multiplier compared to the base win.
These models also trigger the first of two free spins games. If you get at least one on both reels 1 and 5, then you trigger 5 free spins.
During these spins at least one (and sometimes both) reels will only show the wild model symbols. This not only gives you a shot at more wins – it gives you a better chance of hitting models on both reels to add an additional free game.
The second free spins feature has even more big win opportunities. To trigger this, you need 3 or more of the runway symbols anywhere on the reels. These are scatters, which pay based on the total number shown. The top prize for 5 runway symbols is a staggering 1000x your triggering bet. You’ll get the free spins too.
During the runway free spins, the middle reel becomes wild. It is covered with the models on every spin. They also appear on reels 1 and 5. If you get them on both reels, you’ll have 5 extra free spins added to your current total.
While this pokie might be a lot more fashionable than most online, the setup has a classic look. This is a 5-reel pokie with 3 rows of symbols on each reel. There are 25 win-lines as both a maximum and a default – you can lower this number if you wish. Bets start at just 25c a spin, with a configurable auto-play option available.
A guy in a yellow jacket (presumably the designer) has the highest line prize. This is worth 1250 coins without a wild, or 2500 with at least one wild. Next comes a magazine, camera and bright red high heeled show.
There are no filler symbols on High Fashion. The smaller paying unique symbols include makeup, jewels and even a hairdryer.
RealTime Gaming have included two random progressives in this game. You can win these at any bet level. As usual these are unconnected to the game, instead they can drop after any completed spin.
High Fashion gives the impression of being in a nightclub, with plenty of neon and multiple spotlights coming from above the reels. When you click spin, some electronic ‘dance’ music plays. This now sounds a little out of date.
Artwork for the symbols has a retro feel. The style of models is 1990’s, with short animations making this pokie feel like it was created some time ago.
When the free spins bonus kicks in, the background changes from pink to blue. There is different dance music. The extra models on the reels mean the flashing wins and electronic warbles that accompany them are more frequent. When the bonuses end, your prizes are counted up in a mirror surrounded by lights.
This is not the newest pokie you’ll find online. RTG may have created a very up to date and cool pokie when it was new. These days High Fashion looks a little retro, both in terms of the computer graphics and the clothing / hair of the models. That said, it has a certain quirky charm, and with two bonus games plus the familiar random jackpots is worth a spin. The biggest prizes will come with the scatter symbols. Here it is possible to win 1000x your triggering bet.
