The original Dirty Dancing film is about to turn 30 years old and it was only a matter of time before the slot game equivalent was released. Playtech decided to do the honours and the Dirty Dancing slot is live now. It is of course, based on the original romantic drama dance film and it comes complete with a progressive jackpot. The game tries to stay true to the original film so read our review below and you can decide if this is worth your hard-earned cash.
Playtech slots are always great fun to play and Dirty Dancing is no different. The rules of the game are pretty simple. Malfunction of this game will void all pays and plays so it is important that you check your internet connection before playing. The return to player is also high at over 94% and the aim of the game is to spin the reels to complete winning combinations. Doing so will result in cash prizes.
Of course, you cannot overcome the house edge but there are a few things that you can do to adjust your gameplay. The paylines are fixed on this game so they cannot be adjusted so choosing suitable betting options is important.
Due to the fixed paylines, the minimum bet is 40p but the maximum bet is a whopping £800. Choose a betting strategy that fits your budget and allows you to play the game comfortably. You can also access the Dirty Dancing slot on mobile if you prefer to play from your phone or tablet.
There are bonuses to trigger on this game. Johnny Castle (played by Patrick Swayze in the movie) is the wild symbol and he replaces all others except for the scatter symbol. He can help you win big by completing winning combos from time to time. The Mambo Free Games is the first main feature and you will be asked to spin the Wheel of Fortune. There will be free spins credited and they will begin immediately after this wheel stops spinning.
The Dirty Dancing Bonus is the second feature and this is a prize pick game. It can trigger when you land three matching symbols and there are six stages to this game. If you can advance through all of the stages (this is rare) but if you manage this then you will win the progressive jackpot!
The design is pretty glitzy and glamorous with a pink background. On the reels, there are plenty of symbols such as a car, a boom box, high heels, a record and characters from the original movie. It looks pretty great and is exactly what we would expect. The music is nice enough although you can switch it off if you wish.
Dirty Dancing slots is a fitting tribute to the original 1987 romantic drama film. Fans of the movie will love it and there are plenty of free spins and cash prizes to win. It’s most definitely worth a few spins and remember you can spin it from just 40p.
