The Rave

Slot of the Month: The Rave


Dale Shelabarger

Our slot of the month for July is The Rave – the latest gritty offering from No Limit City. Since its release a couple of weeks back, the game has been responsible for some huge payouts, with one punter walking away with around 50,000 Euros.

In addition to a max win potential of 41,500 x your stake (yes, that’s right), this engaging slot game features random modifiers, a pair of free spin features and an excellent soundtrack that doesn’t actually need muting.

Theme/Visuals

The main character central to NLC’s well-conceived theme is Joe Labrador – the tattooed inmate from the San Quentin game. He’s been released and has now become resident DJ at one of the most bouncing clubs in town.

The 5 x 3 game-grid is set against a blurred flashing dance floor complete with raving revellers…so to speak. So authentic are the visuals that the game comes with a photosensitive epilepsy warning. DJ Labrador presides over the game area spinning disks and playing up to the crowd.

The reels are replete with the kind of objects essential for those weekenders dead set on finding transcendence through dance and illicit chemicals. These include water bottles, a smiley acid face, lollipops and a gaggle of freakish characters.

Accompanying play is a brooding soundtrack that sounds a bit more like house than rave? I could be wrong of course, being north of 40. Still, the music matches the theme very well and wouldn’t be out of place in a modern nightclub.

How to Play the Rave

Of the premium symbols, the highest value ones include a grandma and a cock-eyed party girl. There’s also a very eager-looking male character who’s supposed to look like the late great Keith Flint, but who bears a closer resemblance to Cathy Burke’s ‘Gimme Gimme Gimme’ character.

However, it’s Joe Labrador, aka DJ P5ych0, who’s the most valuable, paying out 6x your stake if you manage to land him five times across one of the 243 pay-lines. The smiley face serves as a non-paying wild and performs the usual function of replacing all other symbols to help you create winning lines.

Enhancer Cells

The base game also includes Drop the Bass scatters. These appear randomly in any position with two activating Enhancer Cells. These cells can reveal a collection of the following special symbols: xWays, xSplit Wilds, Wilds and a Character.

While the latter two are self-explanatory, the others perform unique functions. For example, XWays reveal from two to six matching symbols that appear stacked, while xSplit Wilds split all symbols on a reel as well as doubling them, before splitting themselves.If you manage to unveil a pair of XWays wild symbols, an expanded wild appears that comprises between 6 and 11 wilds.

Should you be lucky enough to fill the screen with xWays wilds, you’ll walk away with the maximum payout. All you’ve got to do is defy odds of 5 million to 1.

Murder on the Dance Floor Round

The Murder on the Dance Floor round is triggered by landing three or four Drop the Bass scatters. You’ll then receive either seven or eight free spins as well as three or four Enhancer Cells. During the round, the enhancer cells appear on the bottom row and remain active for all free spins.

Multipliers also come into view above the second and fourth reels and become active when you land character symbols in the enhancer cells. These multipliers are doubled if xSplit symbols land on reels 2 and 4.

God is a DJ Bonus Round

Land five scatters and you’ll gain access to the God is a DJ bonus round. For this feature, five enhancer cells are in play and once again occupy the bottom reel positions. Although they function in the same way, you’ll be guaranteed one of three random modifiers.

The first is called the Mashup – it converts all characters on the reel into top-tier symbols. Then there’s the Crossfader which turns low-value symbols on the second, third or fourth reels into wilds. You’ve also got the Sidechain modifier which links two to five reels with matching symbols.

Conclusion

Thematically, The Rave is a highly-impressive addition to No Limit City’s already impressive portfolio of titles. It’s true that certain features like the Enhancer Sells can be found in other games from NLC. But show us a developer that doesn’t offer the same features across multiple games.

The random modifiers are a nice touch though, as is the maximum win potential. However, be mindful of the photosensitivity warning (they’re not kidding), not to mention the high volatility!
