Vinyl Countdown Slot
Get on your dancing shoes, you lucky little spinners. Vinyl Countdown is going to whisk you away down memory lane to a simpler time when bad haircuts were not only acceptable, but actively encouraged.
This slot machine takes on a nostalgic theme which harks back to the rockin’ era of 1950s America. With disco balls, jukeboxes, vinyl records and an assortment of sugary treats, this game is perfect for those players who want to relive the good old days. Think Grease Lightning meets Las Vegas.
The game itself only has 9 paylines spread over its 5 reels, making it a pretty standard option in the slot machine market. Sadly, there are no notable bonus features to mention, which is a shame because this will inevitably deter many players. However, there are some wild symbolsand scatter symbols to keep things interesting.
A refreshingly retro slot machine
It’s always a delight to come across a slot machine that does something a little but different with its theme. Vinyl Countdown is one of these slots. In fact, there are very few games out there targeted towards the nostalgia niche – unless you consider Ancient Egypt themed slot machines as nostalgia…
Instead, this slot machine appeals directly to the sentiment of many players who experienced the rockin’ 50s. Even if players weren’t alive and kicking in those days, they will surely be attracted by the cool and retro aesthetic of the game. The graphics themselves are quite cartoon-like and stylised to reflect the vintage era of classic glamour.
Simple gameplay for simpler times
Playing this slot machine is as easy as, well, spinning a vinyl on a record player. In fact, this slot machine is made even easier to play by the fact that it only offers a limited range of wagering options. Those options are 0.25, 0.50. 1.00 and 2.00.
Of course, players can up the ante by activating more paylines. There are up to nine playable lines in total and you can toggle these by clicking the numbers which run along the side of the game or by simply clicking the “Select Lines” button. The total bet that is placed as a stake on each spin is the number of lines multiplied by the coin size. So, you could bet as little as 0.25 for a low value spin on only 1 pay line or you could bet up to 18.00 for a high value spin with every possible pay line active.
Hopefully you have a sweet tooth because this game features some sugar-filled deserts as its least valuable icons. These symbols have 5-in-a-line payouts that multiply the coin size on that line up to 250x. The more valuable symbols in Vinyl Countdown are, in order of value: a pair of dancing shoes, a heart icon, a beautiful belle and the heartthrob 50s rocker who is sporting the trademark pompadour hair do. The most rewarding icon is the Vinyl symbol itself, which will multiply the coin size by 1,000 – now that is definitely worth a spin!
If you are one of those players who just likes to sit back and let the slot do all the hard work, then you are in luck. That is because this game features an “Expert” mode in which players can set up a continuous autoplay round of up to 500 spins.
Rock the wild symbols
Unfortunately, this slot machine doesn’t have any bonus features such as free spins or gamble games. That is quite an unusual thing for a video slot machine of this calibre, but players will just have to make do without any of these side games to mix up the action.
Vinyl Countdown does include wild and scatter icons – both of which serve to keep the gameplay action as interesting as possible. For example, the scattering disco ball can appear on any of the game’s 5 reels but it doesn’t need to line up with other scatter symbols to pay out. You simply have to come across three or more anywhere on the game screen to win some money.
The wild card is depicted by a jukebox and it will fill in winning combinations for any symbols apart from the disco ball scatter card.
A historical slot machine that is still relevant today
This slot machine may not be top of the slots when it comes to bonus features, but it definitely does deliver a very well designed game to the punters. What’s more, it offers something a little bit different to the many tried and tested slot themes out there. So, if you are bored of games about ancient history, why not check out this game which grooves to the beat of our very own living history?
