We hope you’re ready to boogie, dear reader, because we’re swinging all the way back to the 80s! It was a magical time – one that gave us fantastic movies, amazing rock music and questionable fashion choices! We dare you to find a picture of yourself from that time period. We guarantee a fit of giggles at your own expense when you see your clothes or hairstyle.
Luckily for everyone, today we’re talking about one thing in particular – disco! GiG Games have created a colourful, if somewhat boring release. The background image and spinning disco ball are cool. But the choice of symbols could have been much more interesting.
The developers try to make up for it with the special features they made available for players to enjoy. You will find Wild Reels and free spins. Neither of the two is new concepts for the iGaming industry. But they will both be your good friends if you plan to hit that 500x jackpot prize.
Wild Reels is a 5-reel, 3-row video slot with 10 fixed paylines. By clicking the coins button, gamblers can set the wager anywhere between $0.10 up to $100 per spin.
The spin button sits at the very centre, begging to be pressed over and over. Each one makes the reels spin, bringing with it the potential for a fantastic prize. Alternatively, you can make use of the extensive Autoplay options and let the game do all the work for you.
Despite being a disco-themed release, there are no icons really associated with disco. The Wild is a golden disc, and the Scatter is a disco ball. However, all other symbols are generic things you would find in a physical machine. Stars, bars, lucky sevens, diamonds, fruits and playing card royals. We know for a fact that GIG Games can do much better than this.
Thanks to the Wild Reels special feature, each round comes with guaranteed Wilds! Or rather, one full reel of Wilds! There is also a chance that a second Wild reel is added on top of the first one, doubly increasing your odds for a great win!
If you find three or four Scatters on the playing field at the same time, you will win 8 or 15 free spins. It is possible to win more free spins by collecting three or more Scatters while the bonus is still active. During free spins, you get two guaranteed Wild reels, and a possibility for a third one to appear.
With its medium variance and a 97% RTP, it has some great potential. It can be very fun to play from time to time, but it needs some more interesting special features. The biggest disappointment were the visuals. We were promised a disco-themed game and the artists failed to deliver. However, if you don’t care for visuals, then this GIG release will be quite enjoyable.
