Vinyl Countdown

Grease Lightening was a film all about growing up in the 50s; the music, the socialising and the dancing. Now, Microgaming have developed a game to throw us back into that nostalgic era. Complete with disco balls, plenty of puddings and a retro feel, kick off your shoes and enjoy a blast to the past. Plus find other games at megareel.

About the Developer

In 1994, Microgaming set the standards in creating the first true online casino software. Since then, they have become at the forefront of producing fantastic casino slot games and have over 850 in the market.

They produce everything with a combination of the latest technology, mathematics and expertise from employees who really know their stuff. Most of all, they use imagination.

Some of their games include Jungle Jim and Phantom of the Opera.

About the Game

This is a 5 reel, 9 payline slot game, meaning it is a straightforward game so you’ll never feel out of your depth and is ideal for those just beginning in online slot gaming. Bets can be placed from 0.25p to £18.00. Winnings are in the low to medium range.

The graphics are bright and comic like, with cartoon images in vivid colour.

The lower paying symbols of the game include the mouth-watering deserts such as milkshakes, cream and waffles. Get 5 of the same icon on a row and you’re looking at a payout of up to 250x your bet. The higher paying symbols are the dancing shoes, the blonde girl and the man with the iconic 50s quiff.

The game’s main features are:

•WILD – this is the neon Vinyl Countdown symbol and offers one of the best payouts in the game, up to 1000 x your bet. It will also substitute for all other symbols and lands on reels 2,3 and 4.

•SCATTER – this is the silver disco ball and will award a payout if you land 3 of them on the reel. The rules are simple here; the more disco balls appear, the more you will be rewarded, up to a total of 100 coins.

•AUTO PLAY –sit back and watch the party as the game does your work for you. Pick between 5 or 10 spins a go.

•EXPERT –if you know what you are doing, then this game does present the option of levelling up with the expert mode. This offers up to 500 auto spins.

•CHANGEABLE PAYLINES -Vinyl Countdown does offer the option of changing the amount of paylines, so you can start low and end up at 9, depending on how you are feeling and how daring you are. Just click the number at the side of the game to get going.

The Verdict

Vinyl Countdown is a relatively simple game. Aside from the main symbols, the scatter and the wild, it does not have any bonus features but that doesn’t stop the theme of the game and the easy wins making it enjoyable. Ideal for starters, it’s a game with great graphics and a nostalgic theme. Want more bonus features? Try Vikings Go Wild.
