Dirty Dancing Slots
You’ve watched the 80s movie, starring Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey, countless times. Now play the slot of the movie, brought to you by Playtech. Dirty Dancing will have you spinning in your seat as you roll the reels and choreograph your own routine.
Dirty Dancing the video slot looks slightly kitsch and dated, but whether that’s in keeping with the era of the movie or an indictment on Playtech’s design skills is hard to say. It all looks very 80s, put it that way, but if nothing else, the garish graphics and faded glamour will give you plenty of cause to nostalgia hard.
Playtech have clearly put some thought into the design of this game and Dirty Dancing is more than just a hastily assembled cash-in on the classic movie. With both a Johnny Jackpot and a Baby Jackpot, the slot is true to the romantic musical comedy that spawned it.
Nobody Puts Baby in a Corner
Spin the reels of Dirty Dancing and you’ll instantly find yourself reliving the film’s highlights as the soundtrack kicks in and its protagonists surface on screen to relive their famous chemistry.
Were Patrick Swayze around to witness this reinterpretation of his most famous work, who knows what he’d make of it, but he would perhaps approve of his dashing representation if nothing else: this is Johnny in his prime as he prepares to take his partner by the hand and literally sweep her off her feet.
Dirty Dancing has 40 lines, a figure which is on the high side for Playtech. While the number of paylines remains fixed, the bet level can be set from 0.01 all the way up to 10. This means that on the maximum setting, each spin of the reels will cost €400.
The controls for adjusting the bet level, incidentally, are hidden away to the left of the reels. Click on the arrow and they’ll slide out, along with a turbo button which, when disabled, will turn off some of the sounds and animations.
The spin button can be found to the right of the reels. Hold it down and autospin controls will appear; drag the slider to set the number of spins from 0 all the way up to 100.
Alternatively, you can have the autospins continue until you hit the feature. The remaining controls you might require, for audio and disabling the intro screens, are situated to the top right of the screen.
Johnny is the game’s wild symbol. He’ll substitute for any of the other symbols except for scatter to create winning combinations. Any time you land 2 or more wilds on a payline, you’ll receive an additional payout. Scatter, meanwhile, is claimed by the Dirty Dancing logo.
With 3 or more scatters anywhere in view, the payout you receive will be multiplied by your total bet value.
Mambo Free Games
Dirty Dancing has a couple of neat features that naturally tie in with the movie, starting with Mambo Free Games, which can be triggered in normal play; tap the play button once activated to enter this feature.
Here, you’ll be presented with a wheel bonus, with an arrow pointing to various prizes. Spin the wheel and you can win free games, a 2x multiplier or a dancing wild feature.
When you activate dancing wilds, a feat which can only be achieved via Mambo Free Games, a wild symbol will appear on the reels occupying all 4 positions. The reels will then spin and any wins on any of the reels will be boosted by the presence of the dancing wild. The dancing wild will change its position randomly with every spin.
Dirty Dancing also has another form of wilds: Whirling Wilds. This feature is triggered randomly in normal play, whereupon Johnny and Baby will start dancing together. At this stage, anywhere from 2-6 wilds will be distributed as the reels.
Finally, the game contains a Dirty Dancing Bonus, which can be triggered in normal play and which in turn can be used to trigger the Time of My Life Jackpot Game, in which you’ll be required to pick 4 out of 9 Dirty Dancing boxes to determine your win.
Dirty Dancing Summed Up
Dirty Dancing is a great game thanks to the wide range of bonuses and wilds built into it. These ensure that there’s rarely a dull moment as you put Johnny and Baby through their paces.
