You may already be familiar with other games in Net Entertainment’s “through the ages” Video Slot collection, and with titles including “The Groovy 60s” and “The Super 80s”, it was only natural we’d be seeing a game built around the 70’s! In fact, The Funky Seventies – funnily enough, a Net Entertainment game that is based in the 1970’s – has actually been around since 2013, so it’s one of the software provider’s older slots… but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth playing.
The Funky Seventies uses five reels, forty paylines and four rows for your gaming entertainment, and the setting and backdrop behind the reels is a collage of 1970s collectibles, including Platform Shoes and Vintage Cars, all which are displayed underneath a classic, sparkling Disco Ball. The musical soundtrack is just as good, with funky guitar licks entertaining your every spin (and boy oh boy do they go crazy during the bonus.
The symbols displayed on the reels include Vintage 70’s items, such as Cassette Tapes, Platform Boots, an old-school Camera, a Glitterball, an extremely old computer, and a Classic Car. The bonus symbols found in the game include a 70’s Wild Symbol, as well as an Afro-haired girl, who takes the form of a scatter symbols.
Despite the old-school theme found in The Funky Seventies, Net Entertainment have managed to bring the technology behind the game up to speed, ensuring that mobile and tablet players can enjoy the Video Slot as well! Simply open up the game from your chosen online casino, and tilt your device into landscape mode in order to begin playing.
Stacked 70’s Wilds
Almost every slot game on the planet use a universal use for Wild Symbols; they replace all other symbols (aside from bonus and scatter symbols), and help contribute towards winning lines, where – without them – there would be no win. However, in The Funky Seventies, you’ll notice that the Wild Symbols can appear stacked, on any of the reels, meaning you can – potentially – land three, four… even five full wild reels, amassing to massive payouts.
To land the free-spins, you’ll need to land three of the Afro-haired lady on the reels. You’ll then be awarded an instant 2X cash prize, and you’ll be given 5 free-spins, with each spin guaranteeing you a win. While this is a similar concept to Play ‘N Go’s Holiday Season game, the Net Entertainment version doesn’t require just one scatter symbol to award more spins; instead, you’ll need to land another three +, in order to re-trigger the feature. That said, the wins are a lot bigger, and generally more common in The Funky Seventies, especially since all wins during the free-spins are subject to a generous 2X multiplier.
Unfortunately, you can only re-trigger the feature up to a total of 20 free-spins, and while it’s quite a rare occurrence, it does seem like a relatively small cap from Net Entertainment – but it’s their game, and they’re perfectly entitled to do what they want; the people who have the real say, are the players.
