Do you remember Village People? If you are born before the 90s, you probably recall their unique uniforms and catchy songs which filled thousands of dancehalls across the world. Their songs such as Y.M.C.A, In the Navy, Go West, and others were popular even nowadays. One of their popular songs was also called Macho Man, and it was the main source of inspiration for this brand new slot released by Microgaming.
First of all, the slot features a jukebox on the side which plays songs from this popular band — at least some parts of them, due to copyright issues. Nevertheless, the famous basslines and grooves are there. However, music is not the main aspect of this slot, but its visuals.
The slot is set in a disco club, with lights shining down upon an empty dance floor. The big speakers are blaring in the background, and all is set for you to click spin and begin the big 70s party.
The grid has a 6×3 structure, and on top of each reel is one of the members of the Village People in their recognizable uniforms. The first one is a construction worker, the second one is a cowboy, the third one is a cop, the fourth is a Native American, the fifth is a rebel without a cause, and the last one is a sailor. They are all standing on a chargeable podium which offers a special feature that could bring you hefty rewards. Read on!
VP Wild Feature
Whenever you get a VP Wild on a reel, it will expand to occupy two other positions and turning them into a wild. The platforms onto which the Village People members are standing have the so-called VP Wild Meters which are filled whenever you land a VP Wild on a certain reel. Depending on which meter you fill, you will get certain bonus features.
If you fill in the reel one (the construction worker) meter, you will get free spins in addition to random multipliers between 2x and 20x that are awarded on each spin. Furthermore, the reel two meter (the cowboy) will give you free spins and random wilds (2 – 12 of them which are distributed randomly before every free spin.
The third reel meter (the cop) will grant you free spins with wild reels, meaning that two to four wild reels will turn wild before each spin. The fourth reel (the Native-American) meter will give you free spins with Walking Wilds. In this bonus, reels five and six turn into wilds and then change reel to the left after each spin.
The fifth reel (the rebel without a cause) will grant you free spins and symbol upgrades, meaning that all low-paying symbols are replaced with high-paying ones before each free spins, making room for better prizes.
Finally, the sixth reel meter awards you free spins and locking wilds, meaning that one to three wilds are placed randomly on the reels and stay locked in place all the way through the free spins round.
As you can see, the game is quite generous, and pretty complex as well. In other words, it’s a typical Microgaming slot, filled with excitement and innovative bonus features that will never get boring. If you like slots that push the boundaries and step outside the box with innovative features, then Village People Macho Moves is a great opportunity to test your luck. The game is available in free to play version and for real money as well.
