When Rubik Ruled the World
Back in the 1980s life was very different from how it is now. The computer age was in its infancy and children were entertained by that pesky Rubik’s Cube. Hours some of us spent trying to get that puzzle done and then some child used to be seen completing it in minutes on television. Well the dreaded Rubik’s cube is one of the symbols in this slot game mixed with a cassette that’s bound to get chewed up (mine still do thirty years on) and a a pair of sunglasses. Also we get a couple of examples of the appalling fashions of the decade with a girl who really has no idea how to dress but was probably part of the in-crowd those days. There’s also some 80s magazines and some lipstick. We also get the ten to Ace playing card symbols.
That Ghetto Blaster is Wild
Top prize here is 5000x your line stake for five of the girl with no fashion sense so well worth winning as it’s €25,000 if playing at the maximum stake. The wild symbol In this game is the ghetto blaster. Just how many of us have blasted out music in a ghetto is yet to be determined. The music may be loud but so will be your cheers when the wild substitutes for another symbol to get you a winning combination. It can’t substitute for the scatter symbol though. That’s the fashion mag showing leg wamers that were so popular especially once ‘Fame’ arrived – think ‘Glee’ with even more cheesy storylines. Five of the scatters pays a 50x win.
‘Crazy 80s’ can be played in both regular and expert mode. The main difference is that the expert mode has an autoplay feature. It can either be used to give you just five or ten automated spins or go for the more complex method. Here you can set up to 500 automated spins and set it so they stop when a certain account balance is reached (good or bad) or when you get a big win that you definitely don’t want to lose.
All the information about the game can be found in the paytable, that’s really helpful with details including how much each winning combination is worth. Have some free games too to get you used to how the game runs.
Where’s the 80’s Bonus?
Sadly there’s no bonus game here. A bit of a disappointment really, just a random bonus would have been a useful addition to the game. Those of you looking for free spins will have to look elsewhere, a bit like those of us in the 80s who wanted the England cricket team to do well.
The lack of a bonus game is a big drawback here. Why have a scatter symbol if it can’t trigger some free spins or a pick ’em game? The game does have a good look to it, well as good as it can be when portraying something like the 1980s. Thankfully no images of your writer dancing to Duran Duran at a New Romantics night down the local disco. The soundtrack isn’t at all entertaining, so mute button at the ready but there are still some decent wins to be had from the game.
