Disco Night Fright Slots

Disco-Night-FrightDisco Night Fright appears to be a mix between the disco and the horror genre, though the former is the one mostly visible, while the latter is implied in a couple of symbols. The slot is a Microgaming design, a game which benefits from all their experience, but which is a bit too close to the 80s era than I’d like, so it has an audience of its own. The fright element in the game is brought on by a werewolf character.

The game has 243 ways to win, with the usual 5 reels supporting them all. There are some very special free spins inside, scatter symbols and wilds, while the biggest prize is worth $7,500.

Features of Disco Night Fright

The slot’s features consist of wilds and scatters, which will both bring prizes, but also some very special free spins, which turn the main character into a werewolf.

First, let’s take a look at the Glitter Ball, the wild symbol in Disco Fright Night. You will get from this symbol its substitution ability, which means more winning combinations in the long run, but you will not be offered prizes directly. The only symbols which can’t be replaced with wilds are the scatters.

One thing I love about scatter symbols, beside the fact that they often trigger other features, is the fact that they do it all from random positions on the reels. No matter in what location they’ve landed, the scatters give you prizes of up to 1,250x and they also get the free spins started.

Disco Werewolf Free Spins

This particular feature requires the presence of a minimum of three scatter symbols, the ones with the slot’s logo on them. Having 3+ symbols takes you to the round with 10 free spins.


The Disco Dancer symbols which appear on the reels will turn into Werewolf variants while the free spins are running, with higher payouts coming from them in this case. Instead of 1,500x, the payout is now 7,500x for five Werewolf Dancer symbols.

To retrigger the feature, an additional three scatters are required. You get an extra 10 free spins if this happens.

Betting options and jackpots

You can only increase the line bet up to $1, and you do this by using 10 coins that are at their maximum value, of $0.10. With 25 lines being used to cover the ways to win, the maximum bet will go up to $25.

The free spins offer the best prizes, with the Werewolf icon forming combinations that pay up to $7,500. The base game will give you $1,500 at most.

Design and symbols

The design of Disco Night Fright is influenced quite heavily by the disco world of the 80s. Even the design style and the colors are that way, while in the background you can see the people on the dance floor, having fun. There are golden poker cards present in many locations, which is less than ideal, but there are some symbols which look the part and they’re well designed.


Symbols: Glitter Ball (wild), Game Logo (scatter, 1,250x), Disco Dancer (1,500x), Lady (1,000x), Dancing Ring (750x), Cleavage (500x), Ace (250x), King (150x), Queen (150x), Jack (150x), 10 (100x) and 9 (100x).

Is It Worth Playing?

Fans of the 80s disco music and the atmosphere that you could find in clubs of the time will get a kick out of this game, even with the werewolf angle that the developers introduced in it. As a scary game, it doesn’t quite do enough to qualify as one.

The Disco Night Fright 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.
