The hotly anticipated Village People: Macho Moves online slot from Microgaming is almost here. This new branded online slot machine was developed by Fortune Factory Studios exclusively for Microgaming. It was first announced that this multi-award-winning online casino software provider had teamed up with ITV Studios Global Entertainment (ITVS GE) back in 2018 to produce an online slot based on the one of the most iconic band from the 1970’s and 80’s.
“A brand as iconic as Village People is sure to lend a great deal of fun and nostalgia to the themed online slot game, and who better to bring that to life than the company that developed the first true online casino,” said Steve Green, a spokesperson for ITVS GE. The new Village People slot even comes with a jukebox located next to reel 1 (the leftmost reel) which has five memorable tracks to choose from while you’re playing. These top tracks include ‘Macho Man’, ‘Can’t Stop the Music’, ‘Go West’, ‘In The Navy’ and ‘Y.M.C.A’.
This game has 5 reels and 15 paylines and it looks as though there are plenty of fun ways to win prizes. The main characters – the Construction Worker, the Cowboy, the Cop, the Indian Chief, the Biker and the Sailor, all perform their own unique in-play feature once triggered. These are otherwise known as the Macho Moves.
The regular Wild Symbol is the Disco Ball and this can appear stacked across all 5 reels with the ability to fill entire reels from top to bottom. Also keep an eye out for the VIP Wild Symbols because it’s these symbols that can trigger the Mach Moves in-play features. When a VIP Wild Symbol shows up, it will expand to fill that entire reel and then instantly add one token to that character’s token meter. As soon you have filled a collection meter with 5 tokens it will instantly trigger the Macho Move for that character, plus you’ll also receive 5 Free Spins per collection meter filled.
The Construction Worker awards random multipliers from 2X to 20X to each win. The Cowboy awards a random number of Wild Symbols onto random positions on the reels. The Cop can turn up to 5 reels into completely Wild Reels. The Indian Chief awards Walking Wilds (full stacked wild reels that can shift across the reels). The Biker awards Symbol Upgrades (can turn a randomly selected symbol into the same instance of one of the other symbols on the reels) and the Sailor can award Locking Wilds (sticky wild symbols that stay locked in position when they show up and will stake locked until the last Free Spin has played out).
