Crazy 80’s Slots

Crazy-80sCrazy 80’s is a Microgaming slot, a 5 reel title that doesn’t have a lot of paylines, which suggests that it’s an older game, and the same thing results from the type of graphics that are found inside. That might just be the theme that is to blame though, since it is supposed to be inspired by a decade that is known for not being that cool looking, not anymore anyway. The 80s are unmistakable when it comes to fashion and the kind of objects that were popular back then, and you’re going to discover many of them on the reels of this game.

Even though this is a game with 5 reels, it’s not as modern in other ways, like in the fact that only 9 paylines are available. You get scatter symbols and wilds in it, both rather basic features in this case, plus $25,000 jackpots.

Features of Crazy 80’s

The game does have a couple of features, but they’re far from interesting. One of them is a wild symbol, the other is a scatter symbol.

The wild gets the Stereo to represent it. This symbol can substitute for any other icon, the scatter being the exception. What this means is that as a wild it can show up on any payline, and if the other symbols on it match, the wild will take the same role as them, in order to help them improve their combo, or at least form it. The wild symbol will not reward the player in any way when there are multiple icons of this type on the same line.

The pink and green boots that are visible in one of the symbols will tell you what the scatter symbol is. This scatter is only good for one thing, to give you a cash prize whose value depends on the amount you wagered that round. You get up to 50 times the bet, which is somewhat low for a slot machine, especially one that has so few features otherwise.

Betting options and jackpots

Since up to 9 lines are available, up to 9 coins are selectable each round, one per line. The line bet is modified only from the denomination of the coin, with the maximum at $5 and the minimum at $0.25. The full betting range is between $0.25 and $45 per spin.

Get the 80s Girl to appear on an entire payline, in all the positions, and your reward will be 5,000 coins, or $25,000.

Design and symbols

Since this is an 80s inspired slot machine, you can see quite a few things on its reels that belong to that era. Among them, the stereo, the girl dressed in the specific style of that decade, things like teen magazines, sunglasses, Rubik cubes and make-up. As for the background picture, it is a mix between a checkered white and black area at the top, and blue with pink further down. It’s not the best looking game out there, but it’s hard to blame it on the developers since the 80s were such a mess by today’s standards.

Symbols: Stereo (wild), Boots (scatter, 50x bet), Girl (5,000 coins), Clothing Style (600 coins), Magazines (500 coins), Sunglasses (300 coins), Make-up (250 coins), Ace (150 coins), King (120 coins), Queen (120 coins), Jack (100 coins) and 10 (100 coins).


Is It Worth Playing?

Try it if you’re a fan of the 80s, if you have some great memories from back then, or if you’re curious about an era that you didn’t go through. It’s not quite as modern looking, which is the point in a game like this, but that also means that not everyone will enjoy it.

The Crazy 80’s slot machine is offered through the Microgaming platform, so if you want to play it for real or just to practice, look out for casinos that use it.
