Developer NetEnt has celebrated disco with the release of its new video slot, Funk Master.
The game uses an 8×8 grid layout with an RTP of 96.04%, and the slot uses a Cluster mechanic over paylines, requiring you to match clusters of identical symbols to make wins.
Funk Master has high volatility, which means you’re more likely to make infrequent large wins over regular small ones, and it requires a bet of between £0.20 and £200 per spin.
Symbols in the game are all disco-themed, and they include red, yellow, green, pink, teal, purple, and blue disco balls. There are also Dancing Wild symbols, Multiplier bomb symbols, and rainbow-coloured disco balls.
Funk Master is available at all NetEnt-partnered mobile casinos, including SlotsMillion, Videoslot, Casumo, LeoVegas, and more.
The Funk Master slot comes with several special features. For example, the game uses an Avalanche mechanic, so winning symbols disappear from the reels, and new symbols fall to replace them, which can trigger another Avalanche. This chain reaction continues until no new winning combinations are made.
There are also Dancing Wild symbols, which can appear anywhere on the reels in the main game. When a Dancing Wild forms part of a winning cluster, it doesn’t disappear like the other symbols. Instead, it randomly moves to one of the positions that’s adjacent to its initial position. Dancing Wild symbols substitute for all symbols but Multiplier symbols.
Landing three or more Dancing Wild symbols triggers the Free Spins, where you’re awarded six spins that are played on an expanded grid. The Dancing Wild symbols that triggered the feature remain in place until they become part of a winning cluster.
There are also Dancing Wilds Hotspot positions, which are found in both the main game and Free Spins mode. Hotspot positions are locked and can only be unlocked by forming winning clusters over them.
Hotspot positions are 2×2 square areas found in the base game or 3×3 square areas found in the Free Spins, and unlocking them awards Dancing Wild symbols. In the Free Spins, unlocking the Hotspots expand the grid’s layout up to 12 rows.
Finally, the Funk Master slot has Multiplier symbols that can appear during both the main game and Free Spins mode, multiplying the total win of a cluster by between 2x and 10x.
James Jones, the Head of Business Development at Evolution, said of the game: “What a fantastic slot theme! Funk Master brings the ’70s dance fever back to life with a vengeance.
“Players will love the Dancing Wilds and the flashing disco balls. The team has worked really hard in bringing the groove to this slot and players are going to thoroughly enjoy this foot-tapping experience.”
