And it’s somewhat appropriate that if slots-maker H5G are taking a trip back in time, they do so while celebrating the Charleston. It may seem a somewhat ridiculous way of dancing to us now but back in the 1920s it was all the rage. Originating from the city of Charleston in South Carolina and often accompanied by pearl necklaces, bowler hats and other props that these days wouldn’t look out of place in antiques shop, it was ‘the dance’ of the era and not an easy one to master at that.
We say it’s a throwback because this is a pretty simple slot to play and absolutely nothing wrong with that.
On a 6×4 reel, you’ll find a combination of the usual lower-paying card symbols and four different dancers, which in order of the least to most valuable, go like this: bespectacled gentleman who’s a surprisingly good dancer, smiling brunette lady, dashing blonde lothario (we don’t know that for a fact, we’re just guessing) and finally, the blonde seductive dancer because apparently ‘gentlemen prefer blondes’ so she’s obviously the highest paying.
The game’s logo is the Wild and it can appear stacked, which means that it can cover up to four positions on the reels, heavily increasing your chances of winning something big. Of even greater interest to the player however, are the Free Games symbols.
Appearing on Reels 3, 4 and 5, you’ll need three of them to get between 2 and 7 free games and Wilds can expand here to cover the whole reel, which obviously helps. Getting combinations made up of the Jackpot symbol and the Wild during the round also rewards you handsomely.
Is it a slot worth making a song and dance about? It’s not the most varied or complex but it has its moments and the music is pretty good!
