Vinyl Countdown Online Slots
Microgaming has created a very wide variety of online slots to choose form. Some are detailed five reel games with loads of extra features, and some are more simplistic games which are all about the spinning of the reels. Vinyl Countdown is one such game, with only nine paylines and no special features other than a wild symbol.
The nine paylines in Vinyl Countdown have only four wagering options which are 0.25, 0.50. 1.0 and 2.0. The paylines are adjustable though, which means that you can play any number of them that you wish. Vinyl Countdown is a game which will appeal to a very specific market, as it is not feature rich nor does it have 3D graphics. Vinyl Countdown can be played by players of all budgets due to its wagering range, but the lack of progressive jackpot may put high rollers off.
The graphics in Vinyl Countdown have been designed to emulate the 1950’s this was a period of innovation and discovery. Disco was huge, as were sugary treats, diners and Cadillac’s. Vinyl Countdown celebrates all of this with simple, bright graphics that stand out boldly from their background. There is not a lot of detail in this slot game, which makes it perfect for mobile devices such as smart phones or tablets.
Vinyl Countdown is a very bright looking slot with lots of neon colours and black edges. The reels take up all the space on the screen, which leaves no room for background. Below the reels are the buttons which have been done to look like a drive in or diner welcome board. 1950’s style music plays in the background to the game as the reels spin.
Vinyl Countdown is one of Microgaming’s slots which have purely theme based symbols. The lower paying ones are all sugary desserts that one might find at a typical American style diner. These will award you with a payout of between 50 and 250 coins for five of a kind. The milkshake is worth the least while the banana split is worth the most. Dancing shoes, a dancing couple, a blonde girl and greased hair guy are next on the paytable, paying out up to 900 coins for five of a kind with the greasy guy being the most lucrative. The games logo is the highest paying symbol. This will award a lucky player with 1000 coins for five of a kind on an active payline.
Wild and Scatter Icons
Vinyl Countdown has only one feature, which the wild symbol. This is a bright icon with a rainbow coloured jukebox and the word wild emblazoned on it. A wild symbol is put on the reels to represent other base game symbols. This helps to create winning combinations. For example three greasy guys and a wild will equal four greasy guys.
Vinyl Countdown has a scatter symbol too, but this one does not launch any free spins. In this game the scatter is purely a scatter, paying out scatter wins. This symbol is the only one that does not have to be in any particular order to pay out. Two or more scatters found anywhere on the reels in any order will give you a multiplier of your line bet.
