The Glorious 50's from 888: Slot Review - transport yourself back in time to the 1950s.
This game celebrates the glory years of the 1950s. The world was changing as World War II had ended and it was time for people to start having some fun again. Jukeboxes became the rage everywhere and it’s no coincidence that the birth of pop music happened in this period as well as the arrival of a certain king of rock n’roll!
It is a 3 reel slot game with 5 paylines and comes with features such as free spins and a pick bonus.
The first thing I noticed while playing this game is the Wild symbol and this is denoted by a gold disc with the word Wild below it. It substitutes for all symbols except the Scatter symbol and it is also the highest paying symbol in the game as if you land 3 Wild symbols then you will be treated to a glorious 100X multiplier!
The Scatter symbol is illustrated by a gramophone with a yellow background. If you land 3 of these symbols on the reels then you will activate the Free Spins bonus game. In this feature, you get to choose from 15 free spins with a 2X multiplier, 10 free spins with a 3X multiplier or 5 free spins with a 6X multiplier. All symbols are stacked in this game and additional spins can be retriggered by landing more Scatter symbols along the reels.
The Bonus symbol is depicted by a green Vinyl record and it plays a major part in the Pick Bonus feature. If you land 9 Bonus or Wild symbols then you will activate it. In this game, you have to choose from Vinyl records which reveal Multiplier prizes. Choose carefully as if you pick a broken Vinyl record then the bonus feature will end and you will return to the main game. It is possible to get up to a maximum of 22X in this game and your final tally of multipliers is applied to your total bet. Unfortunately, this feature cannot be triggered during the Free Spins mode.
Theme, Graphics and Sound
The game is superbly presented and the moment you load the game, you are treated to a nice video that is an homage to the 1950s. The background is teeming with detail as a lady plays the cello with a piano on the opposite side and various black and white photos hanging on the wall.The symbols are bright and colourful with clever nods to Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe. They run nicely along the reels and animate superbly when you form a winning combination.
The music is very 1950s based as you can imagine, so expect lots of piano and slow guitar beats. It really enhances the game and helps transport you back to this famous era.
