Slot tester's review: Martin Anastasov

Slot tested

There are a number of online slots with a disco theme out there. Most have been relegated to the heap of forgotten games, but some are still available because they have struck a right chord in some players.

Since I don’t tend to be chased away by silly graphics of any slot game, I decided to give “Back to the 70s” a try and get a feel of its rhythm. In addition to a serious disco tune, the game comes with a paytable that offers several symbols with a relatively generous value.

Since the game is designed and created by Wazdan, the players have the option to choose the variance between low, medium or high. This is quite useful depending on how you want to steer your adventure.

Theme and Graphics

“Back To The 70s” is one of the better slots with a disco theme from the few I have played, which includes Barry the Disco Leprechaun. The symbols pay homage to a number of items that represent this musical era. The style in which they have been made is cheerful and, shall we say, groovy?

I’ll be perfectly honest about something though. The game resonated with me only because of my passion for the Simpsons, so whenever I see a reference to disco I am reminded of one of the seldom cameoed characters, Disco Stu.

But never mind that, because the main motivator for me to pull out some disco moves was the game’s payout potential of 5150x your bet.

Extra Features

  • Wild Scatter Back To The 70s doesn't have a standard wild symbol; instead, there is a bonus/scatter symbol, which wild at the same time. Had there been a true wild, it would have appeared on the reels more often than it does, as the bonus/scatter/wild symbol can go missing for seven, eight or more spins in a row.
  • Two Symbol Payouts

    I can’t count the number of times I was irked with the game turning up petty payouts consisting of two symbols. A standard wild symbol would have made a perfect fit in these situations, to bump the values up, but you’d have to make do without it.

  • Free Spins

    The bonus round comes with 10 free spins and is triggered when you land three scatters on the reels. At the outset, you are asked to choose one of four cocktails, which reveals one of the game’s symbols as “special”.

    This symbol appears on the reel-set more frequently and can often come in a full stack (three symbols) on one or more reels. What is more, this symbol becomes the substitute and can trigger some neat wins, especially when it expands on the reel.

    On an even more positive note, three bonus/wilds can retrigger the free spins and these carry a good value, especially when they appear four (20x) or five (200x) on the reels.

Bets and Payouts

The game offers a rather wide range of bets that begin at 20p per spin and end at $100.00.

In addition to the bonus/scatter, two other symbols on the paytable can pay a hefty amount: the disco king can reward you with 250x and the disco queen 100x your bet for five of a kind.

The headphones and the rotating disco lights pay 37.5x your bet for five of a kind.

Five symbols on the paytable require four of a kind in order to make a gain of either 1.25x or 2x; these symbols are the vinyl record, the cassette tape, the pair of novelty sunglasses, the platform shoe and the cocktail.

Also worth noting is that all of the high-paying symbols (minus the bonus symbol) can pay for two of a kind; the prizes are 0.5x and 0.25x. In my opinion, this is a great way to compensate for the wild that is missing.

Summary

What I really like about this game is that you don’t have to depend on the free spins bonus in order to achieve a big win. Of course, getting the bonus feature comes with a greater chance for a big win, thanks to the stacked special symbols.

My experience with “Back to the 70s” had me in neutral. You can let the game drive with the smallest bet and see how it turns out. Keep in mind that there is always the option of shifting the random number generator in high variance mode if interested in hunting for the big wins.

Overall, it wouldn’t pain anyone to bob their head to a disco tune, but to get anywhere near that maximum exposure of 5150x you’d need to see the bonus feature retriggering multiple times.

Overall rating:

3.2
