Net Entertainment, aka NetEnt, is a digital gaming developer that can be relied upon to throw innovative features into all its slot titles, no matter what the theme. Disco Spins™ does justice to this homage to the 70s, with a pumping disco soundtrack and symbols drawn from loud outfits in glitterball-lit nightclubs.
The five reels spin behind a 5X3 grid of squares that light up just as they did on the top disco dance floors. NetEnt innovations mean that any of the dancer symbols can be turned into Wilds on any spin, and the game offers players a choice of two bonus rounds when the Scatter trigger shows up. Disco Spins™ has 20 fixed pay lines, but as is common with NetEnt titles, players can vary the coin denomination as well as the number of coins per line to adjust their stakes.
Only Nine Ordinary Symbols for More Wins
Disco Spins™ uses only nine ordinary icons, which means players stand a better chance of matching three or more in a winning sequence on a pay line than they do in games with ten symbols or more. The four poker symbols Disco Spins™ uses are carved in the neon-lit Perspex letters that were popular during the disco era.
All poker symbols win 5 coins for a three-of-a-kind match, but for four matches the J wins 15 coins, the Q and K net 20 coins and the A pays 30. For five of a kind, the J’s prize is 50 coins, the K or Q’s is 75 coins and the A wins 100.
Any Dancer Can Be Wild
A unique feature on Disco Spins™ is that each dancer is in a different coloured outfit, matching the range of colours that come up as disco dance-floor lights on the reels. At the end of each spin, if a dancer is placed on a colour block that matches their outfit, that icon immediately becomes Wild, able to substitute for all other symbols except the Scatter to complete more wins.
For their own combinations of three, four or five on the pay lines, dancer icons can win increasingly impressive prizes. Moustachioed blue guy wins 15, 59 or 125 coins, green earrings girl wins 20, 75 or 150, pink cleavage girl wins 25, 100 or 200, golden perm guy wins 30, 125 or 500, and red sunglasses girl wins 40, 200 or 1,000 coins.
Glitterball Scatter Gives Two Options
Fitting the theme, a huge mirror-ball from the disco era serves as the Disco Spins™ Scatter. It wins no prizes of its own, but three or more in any position will trigger a free spins round. Before this bonus round starts, players must first choose to play either Disco Spins or Free Spins.
Free Spins gives the player a round of 15 free games, with all wins increased by a X3 multiplier. They can also be re-triggered by more Scatters during the round. If the player chooses Disco Spins, there is no multiplier on the bonus, but the reels will feature only dancer and Scatter symbols during the 10 free spins, meaning bigger prizes on wins. This bonus round can also be re-triggered.
