Dance Party is a neon-lit celebration of the retro disco experience, and Pragmatic Play has created a highly volatile game that pulls no punches. The proverbial life of the party is the progressive multiplier free spins bonus round, as you can land wins of up to 36,450x your bet here. The multiplier can be increased up to 30x and you can get up to 60 spins in total.
But let’s not jump ahead of ourselves and cover the basics first. The game is played on 5 reels, 3 rows and 243 ways to win. You can place bets between 20 pence and £100 per spin on all platforms and devices. The RTP of the game is a very decent 96.5%, which means that the house edge on this game is only 3.5%.
We haven’t seen the visual design yet, but it’s still well done and appropriate for the theme. Perhaps at least one bonus feature in the base game, with the exception of the wild symbol, would have made the regular grind more interesting. However, once you trigger the progressive multiplier bonus round and get ready for a massive payout, all is forgiven and forgotten.
What are the symbols?
All the symbols in this game look like neon signs that you might see in a fancy nightclub or bar, and the DJ neon sign is the most valuable symbol. You also have some familiar symbols like lucky number 7 and BAR symbols as well as the regular low value royals. You need between 3 and 5 matching symbols on a payline to win. Here is the paytable for Dance Party slot:
- DJ – Pays 7.5x for 5 on a payline.
- Triple 7’s – Pays 6x for 5 on a payline
- Double BAR’s – Pays 5x for 5 on a payline
- BAR – Pays 4x for 5 on a payline
- Royal Symbols – Pays between 2.5x and 2x for 5 on a payline
What are the bonus features?
You won’t find too many bonus features in this game, but there is a wild symbol for the game logo that you can benefit from in the base game. This wild lands only on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 and intervenes for all regular symbols in a way that maximizes your wins. However, it can’t intervene for the scatter symbol, which leads us to the main course in this game.
Free Spins in Dance Party
The big, shining diamond is the scatter symbol of the game and can land on any reel. You need to land at least 5 scatters on the same spin to trigger the free spins bonus round here. This will initially give you 15 spins.
The big attraction here is the progressive multiplier that you will see above the reels. The multiplier starts at 1x, 2x or 3x depending on how many scatters you trigger the bonus round with (5, 6 or 7 respectively). The multiplier also increases by 1x, 2x or 3x per round depending on how many scatters you trigger the free spins feature with.
You can go up to a 30x multiplier here, and as the meter increases, so does the accompanying dramatic music. If you land 5 diamond scatters on the same spin during the feature, you will get 15 new free spins to your list. You can get up to 60 spins this way, which of course increases your chances of getting the 30x multiplier. Moreover, you are guaranteed a minimum win of 10x your bet from the bonus round.
What is the jackpot (maximum win)?
While you won’t find a progressive or fixed jackpot that can be won on Dance Party slot, you can still take home massive winnings here. The theoretical maximum win is 36,450 times your bet, which is absolutely solid even for a very volatile game. Of course, with the 30x multiplier, you’ll need to be extremely lucky to get this amount, but depending on the bet size, even half can be a life-changing win (as winnings over £3.6 million are possible here).
