The decade saw the birth of the teenager and rock and roll. Now this three-reel, three-row slot, The Glorious 50’s Slot from 888 with software by Random Logic, celebrates this time over just five fixed Paylines.
Reels are set against the backdrop of a classic jukebox, while the background is filled with images of movie and music stars in black and white, musical instruments and vinyl discs. There’s also a woman playing the cello and a grand piano. And, of course, the backing track is straight from the era.
There’s no progressive jackpot here. But add in not one but two bonus features and you’ve got a game that’s definitely worth a second look.
How to play
If you like your playing simple, you’ll be glad to know there’s nothing too complex about The Glorious 50’s Slot.
A short introductory film plays before the reels appear. Coin sizes range from 5p to £500, and all the usual controls are in place, including the Autoplay function and options for altering your wager. Your top prize is set at 80x current line bet.
There are five symbols related to the theme, including one female and one male character (a glamorous movie siren and an Elvis lookalike), alongside a guitar, drum and squeezebox. Meanwhile, the lower-paying icons are, as usual, the playing card symbols; in this case just the Ace, Queen and King.
The Glorious 50’s Slot special features
The Scatter is the gramophone icon, and it activates the free spins round, while the other bonus feature is launched via the green disc symbol.
As for the Wild, that’s the gold disc icon. As usual, it replaces all symbols bar the Scatter.
Land three Scatter icons anywhere on the reels to trigger this one, which works by getting you to select one of these options:
- 15 free spins with a 2x multiplier for all wins
- 10 free spins with a 3x multiplier for all wins
- 5 free spins with a 6x multiplier for all wins
Statistically, you should get the same outcome whatever you choose, so it doesn’t matter too much which one you pick. You can also retrigger more spins in this round if you get further gramophone symbols. However, you can’t launch the pick bonus (mentioned below) from it.
Trigger this one when you land nine Wild or bonus icons in the base game. Next choose a record to display your multipliers, which get added together. Finding the broken record will end the round, after which the multiplier you have accumulated, up to 22x, will apply to your whole stake.
Return to Player (RTP)
At 95.26%, the RTP of this medium-variance slot isn’t really much to write home about.
You certainly don’t have to be old enough to remember the fifties to enjoy this nostalgic game!
However, you may just need to dig a little deeper to win big in The Glorious 50’s Slot and some may find the small reel set somewhat frustrating.
Nonetheless, this game seems to have cashed in on a fondness for slots with a retro feel, and it offers a unique theme plus some interesting visuals.
