About the Game

This slot is just dripping in 80’s nostalgia and anyone that enjoys spending time in an arcade will absolutely adore this games design. Set against a wooden cabinet, Pong leaves you feeling like you’re actually standing in an arcade somewhere playing this game. A chirpy 8-bit soundtrack beeps and whistles away as you spin and there’s this delightful neon streak around everything that is so retro and just adds to the cheesy 80’s tone they’re going for in this game.

A nice touch is that inside the reels are symbols that keep with the theme of the Atari as there’s the console itself, the iconic joystick and an old CRT television that kids these days would probably not recognise.

Aside from its design Pong has some inventive bonus features that won’t find anywhere else. We’ve highlighted them below, so you can go check them out:

•WILDS: The Atari logo is WILD in this slot and it will substitute for other items in your combinations.

•REFEREE WILDS: These symbols only appear on the central spot on the reels. When they appear, they will roll and choose a different bonus feature to grant you. They can call a Pong ball that will add more WILDS, expand across the reels vertically or horizontally, give you a free spin and award a 3x or 5x multiplier to you. Plus, they can chain on successful spins to grant you huge jackpot prizes if you’re lucky.

The Verdict

Overall we highly recommend Pong as it perfectly captures the era of the 80’s and how popular its namesake was. Its design is just dripping in nostalgia, its soundtrack will appeal to any classic gamer and gameplay is simple enough that even beginners can understand it. Plus, the various WILDS that appear add enough variety to keep you playing this game again and again.
