If you’re looking for an easy to use video slot with 70’s nostalgia by the bucketload, you certainly need to give Funky Seventies a try as it offers you all greatness so typical for that time. The Funky Seventies offers it all wrapped within a modern video slot while packed with the best features the Netent video slots are so famous for. This time a little bit different than you are used to from video slots designed by the Swedish software developer. As seen before in the Relic Raiders video slot, also Funky Seventies offers a 4-row gameplay combined with 40 bet lines. The disco theme isn’t that original either as I’ve seen it before in Disco Spins, but that doesn’t bother me at all as both deliver you all the best of the 70’s.
The 70’s were a tumultuous time in many ways, but most of all regarding Watergate, Vietnam, the oil embargo, and the emergence of the New Right. It was the decade of newly energized movements for greater rights for women, gays and lesbians, the disabled, as well as protection of the environment. Music, film and television probably reached their finest hours, and art exploded with newer colours and more vibrant canvases. Among the typical 70’s wardrobe were hard plaids, weird vertical stripes, gargantuan bell bottoms, huge collars, big belts, bigger buckles, and clunky shoes. Everything in the 70’s was big, and bigger could be even bigger. From tower-sized stereo speakers to leviathan console television sets, the credo seemed to be “if it’s bigger, it’s got to be better.” Even the hair was big and men went for the “helmet hair” look, or male afros, both with long and often hideous sideburns. Woman often wore the “Farrah Mane” look, named after Ms. Fawcett’s famous blown out ‘do. And I have to admit I needed to get my information elsewhere as I wasn’t even born yet, but these times seems very funky to me, and some of these characteristics from the 70’s have been brought back in the Funky 70’s, together with a lime green coloured background, the disco balls, computers, platform heels, tapes, retro cars and even the see-o-matic goggles are present while a retro disco track takes you even further back in time.
As Funky Seventies is an older Netent creation you are still allowed to tinker with the amount of bet lines playing with, and there are 40 of them, so there are some possibilities available although I always recommend to activate all bet lines available to increase your winning chances. If you do, you’ll be able to start playing Funky Seventies with a minimum bet of 0.40, perfect for the low risk players. But if you tend to take some more risk, that’s possible too and your total bet can steadily be increased due to the five bet levels and six coin values. In between there are dozens of different bets available, of which I’m sure there’s always a bet that fits your budget.
The 70’s Wild symbol is stacked which means multiple Wilds can appear on each reel and in some cases it means the whole reel will be taken over by the Wild, responsible for an increased chance of winning. It’s a very active Wild symbol which can appear on its own, but rather seems to hang around in groups making this video slot very attractive.
Funky Free Spins
Three Disco diva Scatter symbols appearing anywhere on reels 2, 3, and 4, in the main game activate five Free Spins, but extra Free Spins can be awarded during Free Spins when again three Disco Diva Scatters appear. Perfect for some extra winnings, also due to the Multiplier attached to Free Spins as all winnings will be doubled. And just as in the main game, Wilds like to get together in Free Spins too, perfect for extra high winnings. And with a theoretical return to the player of 96.5%, Funky Seventies is an average video slot, although average and the 70’s aren’t really made for each other.
Looking for some nostalgia, you’re at the right place with Funky 70’s, especially if looking for an easy to use video slot with all characteristics from the 70’s. Some more nostalgia can be found in Retro Groovy 60’s and Super 80’s, coming from the same series.
