The decade between the 70’s and the 90’s was without a doubt the weirdest and the strangest decade in the history of man when it comes to fashion, music and looks. The So 80’s slot machine from Rival has captured the atmosphere and the look of the decade that gave us Back to the Future, Margaret Thatcher and Wham. So 80’s is a 5 reeler with 15 pay lines for you to bet on. The slot machine includes a very cool free spin feature and a Smiley Jackpot. Rival has once again managed to create a very entertaining slot machine with an outstanding theme that brings back the essence of the strangest decade ever known to man.
Graphics & Sound
The design of this slot machine is great. The whole game window, the symbols and the sound effect are all in very good consistency with the theme of the 80’s. What’s more, the colouring also brings out the theme. Remember all those distinct, almost blinding, pink and green colours? Yeah, they are all included in this slot machine. The sound in the main game is the buzzing sound of an 80’s crowd. In certain win position on the reels, a little music score or a digital “beep” can be heard.
All symbols, even the card deck ones, are themed related. You will see a lot of 80’s icons such as the boom box, fluffy hair styled girls, a man with 80’s type of sun glasses and of course a classic Smiley icon. The wild is the Atari computer joystick symbol. The wild will substitute for all symbols except for the scatter. It also carries a X3 multiplier when substituting a winning combination on the reels. The scatter is the breakdance symbol. If you hit three or more of this, you will trigger the free spin feature. The jackpot symbol is the smiley icon.
There is no Gamble Feature in this game.
You will trigger the free spin feature by hitting 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. This will give you 15 free spins which pays X3. The free spin feature can be re-triggered from within the feature but this will only give you 10 free spins.
So 80’s has 5 reels and you may bet on up to 15 pay lines. The minimum bet per line is 0.01 coins and the maximum bet is 1 coin per line. So 80’s has an auto play function which is easy to activate and configure by clicking on the auto button in the lower part of the gaming window.
