You can’t read the title Funk Master without thinking of that exact line in Goldfish’s song Late Night People. This game has a lot to live up to, is it enough to compete with the funky South African dynamic duo? We’re about to jump right in and find out.
The game needs to be able to make us want to jump out of our chairs at any moment and bust a move, whether we’re home alone or not. The soundtrack needs to be thumping and the bonus features have got to be on point. We’re about to find out if developer NetEntertainment was able to pull all of that off.
We’ll also keep you informed about all of the bonus features, extras, mechanics, symbols, and options that you’ll need to know before you can start to chair rave properly.
Colours And Lights
The game does a good job of setting up the theme and getting you invested early on. When you first load up the game you’ll notice a square box on the grid that’s wiggling about, seemingly dancing along to the tunes. You’ll want to know what that is and how it interacts with the game.
Unfortunately, besides what is on the grid, there are no other persistent animations. Some disco lights or changing colours would’ve gone a long way toward making the game feel more funky and fresh.
Animations within the grid are pretty good, disco ball Wilds shine bright and make you excited whenever they’re on screen, the winning pop of the symbols when combinations form fills you with adrenaline and watching subsequent cascades never gets old.
Arguably the most important aspect of a disco-themed online video slot game is the music and well, the audio in this game works, kind of. The soundtrack is kind of goofy and doesn’t really fit the theme. Should you let the game idle for a little while, the music calms down and then picks back up when you spin the reels again. It is a little disappointing that the music isn’t funkier but what is there isn’t terrible.
This title is fun and is pretty standard fare from what we’ve come to expect from this developer. It’ll slide into NetEnt’s slot catalogue, not managing to stand out very well.
If you’re a fan of the developer or just like bright and colourful games, then give this one a try the next time you’re browsing your favourite online casino.
Bombs And Disco Balls
There aren’t too many icons to keep track of while playing this online release. There are paying symbols, multipliers, and Wilds.
We’ll start with the paying icons. These are all represented by different coloured disco balls. In total there are seven of these. They come in blue, purple, turquoise, pink, green, yellow, and orange.
Next, we’ll cover the dancing Wild. Represented by a rainbow coloured disco ball, the Wild will substitute for any other common icon in the game allowing you to build bigger combinations or start entirely new ones. Should a Wild be a part of a win, it will move either horizontally or vertically and remain on the grid during the cascade.
The red multiplier bombs come in variations of x2, x3, x5, and x10. Should two or more multiplier bombs appear on the grid during the same symbol drop, they will be added together and any win will be multiplied by the sum.
Moving To The Rhythm
You’ll be playing this cascading video slot game on an 8×8 grid during the base game, during the bonus spins feature the grid can expand. Wins are determined by clusters of winning symbols. Bets can range from 0.20 – 200 coins per spin, meaning that you have a great deal of bet customisation. The highest achievable win is 3,337x the bet. The theoretical return to player rate is around 96.04% with the volatility rated as being high.
Dance Like Nobody’s Watching!
The wiggling box on the grid is the Dancing Wilds Hotspot. The box is 2×2 and each time you spin the reels, the hotspot moves. You unlock pieces of the box by landing winning clusters within it. Should you manage to unlock all the pieces, you will be awarded 1 dancing Wild. During bonus spins, the Hotspot is 3×3.
By having 3 or more dancing Wilds on the grid at once, you will activate the bonus spins feature. Triggering this feature will award 6 bonus spins. The initial size of the grid during bonus spins will increase from 8-rows to 9-rows.
By unlocking all positions on the hotspot during the bonus spins round, you will increase the size of the grid by 1 more row, eventually capping out at 12 rows.
You’ll be able to buy access to the bonus feature by using the option available on the screen. By doing so, you will trigger the bonus feature for the displayed amount.
Taking A Breather
While the overall funkiness of the title might lacking somewhat, it’s still a fun game to play.
