If you’re a fan of getting up to sing, then this Karaoke Party slot machine might just what you are looking for. For everyone else there’s always Thunderstruck.
Microgaming are well known for taking some super slots and game mechanics, and re-skinning them with varying themes in order to appeal to a variety of different players.
And that’s exactly what they’ve done with this Karaoke Party slot.
Here you get 5 simple reels with 9 paylines, scatters, and wilds that pretty much substitute for all the other symbols and double your wins; it’s as back to basics as you can get.
The theme, however, leaves much to be desired.
We’ve all done a bit of Karaoke singing, whether it’s an impromptu session on a drunken night out, or forced to by friends, there’s nothing quite like dusting off the vocal cobwebs and strangling a few cats in the process.
Which means that Microgaming could have gone with symbols that depict a diverse range of people from all cultures, but it looks like to us that they’ve stuck with a rather stereotypical view on who likes to partake in Karaoke.
You’ve got a bunch of bikini clad girls, a lone lady, a group of Asian guys, an Asian couple in love, and a wannabe Asian rockstar. See the pattern?
Those are all mixed in with the familiar looking A, K, Q , J 10, 9 symbols you’ll find across many of the other Microgaming slot machines online.
Now if you can get past the theme, then this casino game is well worth a spin. Because much like Ladies Nite and Agent Jane Blonde, it provides some decent winning options.
The main bonus feature in this Karaoke Party video slot is that of the 15 free spins. You can trigger them by finding 3 or more of the red dice scatters anywhere across the 5 reels, which is easier said than done.
In fact it’s taken us well over 100 base game spins to trigger this free spins slot bonus on many occasion, but then you can hit it twice in under 50 spins.
But there’s a reason we love the Thunderstruck slot game mechanics, and it’s those 3x multiplier wild wins that add a kick to your karaoke partying.
Generally expect around 20x your bet wins upwards of 50x, which doesn’t always recoup your bets, but there are much bigger wins available if you get lucky enough to find them.
As you’ve might have guessed we weren’t the biggest fans of the way Microgaming have chosen to depict this theme. We feel it could have been done better and attracted more players.
Even though, if you do decide to spin, what you’ve got is a medium variance slot with a 0.09 starting bet up to a maximum 45.00 per spin. Which is great for beginners and smaller betters.
The free spins don’t come that often, but those 2x wild wins will keep your balance ticking over and you can always make good use of the Gamble feature in the Karaoke Party online slot to double or quadruple your wins.
Overall if you like to play a game with the same mechanics we’d head over to the slightly lower variance Thunderstruck, however this Karaoke Party mobile slot and online slot provide just as many opportunities for wins.
