Our Slot of the Month for June 2019 is Village People Macho Moves by Fortune Factory Studios for Microgaming. It’s a 15 line slot played on a 6 reel array; each of the 6 reels is presided over by a different member of disco legends Village People and the VP Jukebox at the side plays 5 of their greatest hits on selectable rotation (or repeat, if there’s one song you particularly prefer).
How To Play Village People Macho Moves
Village People Macho Moves has clearly been designed to be played over an extended period; it has 6 different versions of the bonus round but none of them are triggered randomly. Each member of the group is standing on a podium and to trigger their version of the bonus round it is necessary to fill all five spaces beneath their podium with green lights. This happens through play. The main feature in the base game is the VP Wild, a special version of the Wild symbol that turns the reel it appears on wild, and a green light is added to the podium each time a VP Wild appears on the reel immediately underneath (and when you first start to play the game you’ll be given a light on reel 1 and another on reel 2 to help you get started).
The 6 versions of the bonus round all consist of 5 free spins and each member has his own Macho Move feature; if you trigger two of them on the same spin they’ll play in succession. There are no VP Wilds in any version of the bonus round so it is not possible to retrigger.
- Construction Worker – Random Multipliers (of 2x to 20x on each spin)
- Cowboy – Random Wilds (2 to 12 wilds are placed randomly before each spin)
- Police Officer – Random Wild Reels (2 to 4 placed randomly before each spin)
- Native American – Walking Wild Reels (they start on reels 5 and 6 and move one reel to the left each spin)
- Biker – Symbol Upgrades (on each spin all low scoring symbols are replaced with one of the high symbols)
- Sailor – Locking Wilds (on each spin 1 to 3 extra wilds are placed and lock in place for the remaining free spins)
After a bonus round has been played, the number of lights on that podium only returns to zero.
If you are a fan of the Village People you’ll certainly be entertained by this game and will especially enjoy the dance routine the characters break into during the bonus round. It’s also fun trying to collect all the different versions of the bonus round. Village People Macho Moves has RTP of 96.00% and can be played from 20p a spin.
