Super 80s Online Video Slot
Super 80s is an online video slot machine game from NetEnt. Released on 20th of June 2009, Super 80s has been around for quite a while and has grown a decent following. This slot features a wild symbol a scatter symbol, multipliers and a free spins bonus round. As you may have gathered from the title, the game is based around the retro disco 1980s.
With 40 paylines spread over five reels and four rows, the game holds quite a few chances for players to come away with some decent winnings. A maximum bet of 200 coins can be wagered across all forty lines, or a player can also use the minimum wager of one coin. This opens up Super 80s to all sorts of budgets and players. This particular video slot does not however have any story line, but focuses more on the purist style of old school one-armed bandits. Due to this some players may find it a bit lacking when compared to the newer more progressive online video slots.
1980s Theme and Symbols
Everything about Super 80s is retro and straight from the disco era. From the twangy electric disco music in the background, to the backdrop of the game which comprises of neon lights, pink stilettos and an early walkman. The music can thankfully be muted as it can get rather cheesy. The font used throughout the game is the same as can be found on neon signs during the disco era with the overwhelming colors being luminous pink, green and purple.
The lower symbols are represented by 1980s style playing cards set into round bright bubbles. The higher symbols are a selection of various 80s objects namely a skateboard, stiletto shoes, a computer joystick, a walkman with old school headphones and a very retro style sports car. The special symbols are an unmistakable icon that states 80s Wild, and a scatter symbol represented by a girl with a pink stripe through her barnet.
Super 80s has two main bonus features. The first is the Stacked Wild feature. This particular wild symbol appears on top of each other in the reels or stacks on itself. This means that a player can end up with a large number of these stacked wild symbols in the reels. Obviously the more wilds that stack up, the more winnings are up for grabs. This symbol can substitute for any other symbol in the game except for the Pink barnet scatter girl.
The scatter girl herself appears on the middle three reels and finding three of them will result in a total payout of double your original wagered amount. She also activates a free spins round where five free spins will be awarded after the initial one. All wins from these fee spins will be doubled and added to the players balance. Should another three scatter symbols be found during this round, five more free spins will awarded again, as well as another double of the player initial payout.
