It was back in the 1970s when the Beegees were singing as high as they could and John Travolta became a star. Disco became King and everyone was wearing terrible clothing with often matching dancing skills. At least most of it happened in nightclubs so most of the people you knew were safely tucked up in bed and couldn’t see you making a fool of yourself.
The ‘Disco Spins’ slot game brings back many a memory and like most games from NetEnt it’s great to play. Even the accompanying soundtrack is entertaining which is a bit of a relief in a game like this. If it did make you feel ill though, would that be classified as Saturday Night Fever?
It’s a five-reel game that has a total of 20 paylines for you to try and win some cash on. That number of lines is fixed so your only decisions are the coin value and the level you want to play at. The minimum cost of playing the game is £0.20 and the maximum £200. Just choose a level you feel totally comfortable with and enjoy playing the game.
The game has a really cartoonish look to it which is fine as far as I’m concerned. The reels look like dance floor tiles and as you’ll notice they change colour while the reels are spinning which is really important. There’s dancers in blue, green, purple, red, green and yellow outfits. There’s also the ten to Ace playing card symbols.
The wild in this game is a little bit different. If the dancers land on a floor tile that is the same colour as their outfit then they become wild. This allows them to substitute for other symbols in order to create some winning combinations if your luck is in. There’s also a scatter symbol which is the disco ball and plays a key part in triggering the bonus game so the wilds can’t substitute for it.
If you want some time away from the screen you can set an autoplay. This can be between ten and 1000 or you can set an advanced selection allowing you to stop the spins when a certain balance is reached or a specific win achieved. This isn’t the most complex game out there, but a look through the paytable and some free games will also help you get used to how the game runs.
Keep an eye out for the mirror ball scatter symbol. Three of these, which are only on the third, fourth and fifth reels gets you into the bonus game. There’s a big decision to make as you can either go for some Free Spins or Disco Spins. If you go for the Free Spins then that’ll earn you 15 with a 3x multiplier. Even better news is that you’re able to get more free spins if those scatters come along again in triplicate.
Alternatively you can go for the Disco Spins. So what’s the difference then? Well you only get ten free spins but there’s a different set of reels used for them. They only include dancers and scatter symbols so your chances of getting more winning combinations are increased and it’s possible to retrigger the Disco Spins.
This is an entertaining game to play for sure. The look, sound and theme are all great fun and the way the wilds are created is a novel way. The bonus games can give you some good wins so this is definitely recommended.
