Super Eighties is a retro inspired video slot, part of the decade themed video slots series also including Groovy Sixties and Funky Seventies. The sixties where all about Flower Power, the Twist, Elvis Presley, The Beatles, the assassination of the Kennedy brothers and the dead of Monroe, a divided Germany and Woodstock. The seventies where mostly about Watergate, Vietnam, the oil embargo, New Right movements, disco balls, huge collars, big belts, bigger buckles, and clunky shoes. Born in the eighties I do remember the joystick, the skateboard, my first Walkman, the first mobile ‘fridge’ phones and personal computers, the Rubik’s Cube, Pac Man and Tetris, E.T and of course the music of Michael Jackson, but the eighties also showed a lot of low points regarding the assassination of John Lennon, Black Monday, Lockerbie, but also more positive political happenings like for example the fall of the Berlin Walls. Although this decade wasn’t as hectic as the sixties where, more than enough happened to change history forever.
Though there were low points too, only the famous characteristics of the time have been used by Net Entertainment, including the joystick, skateboard and the Walkman. This video slot is just perfect for those born in the eighties or want to become familiar with all this amazing decade was all about.
After a short history lesson in the intro, I take this extra intro as a chance to introduce the exceptional game play the Super Eighties is offering. Just as Groovy Sixties and Funky Seventies, also Super Eighties consist of five reels with on each reel four symbols instead of the usual three. As more symbols have been used on each reel, Netent also managed to install more bet lines than Netent video slots normally consist of. With a total of 40 bet lines, much more winning combinations can be made with as a result more winnings too. Just as the other two decade based video slots which can be played at the many Netent Casinos, also Super Eighties involves all the best of the decade, completed with a matching soundtrack from that time as the designers at Netent have stripped out standard tunes.
Looking for an exceptional game play other than the standard 5×3 video slots designed by Net Entertainment, you are at the right place with Super Eighties. The game allows you to adjust the amount of bet lines, although I always recommend to activate the maximum amount. Not only because more winning combinations will occur, but also to bring more excitement to the reels. This doesn’t mean you can’t play with bets starting from 0.01, I just try to tell you that playing a video slots like Super Eighties isn’t that exciting. With best starting from 0.01, this game is suitable for any type of players, but if you prefer to take some more risk, you can easily increase your total bet due to five bet levels and six different coin values. No matter if a low roller or high roller, Super Eighties has many betting opportunities to offer including a maximum bet of 100.00.
Just as the two other time related video slots Retro Groovy Sixties and Funky Seventies, also Super Eighties provides a hyperactive Wild symbol that rather hangout in a group then on its own. The 80’s Wild substitutes for all other symbols except scatter symbols, while multiple Wild symbols on each reel line up to create Stacked Wilds, meaning multiple Wild symbols 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.
Three Scatter symbols appearing anywhere on the three middle reels activate five Free Spins, which is in my opinion not that much. Luckily additional Free Spins can be awarded during Free Spins as well as coin wins pay x2, while coin wins on Scatter symbols pay x4.
