Microgaming’s Village People Macho Moves Slot Review

Village People Macho Moves is a 6 reel, 15 payline slot from Microgaming that is based on the biggest disco music sensation of all time. With a 70s/retro feel, it comes with expanding wilds and 6 free spins features – they offer you multipliers up to 20x, added wilds, wild reels, walking wild reels, symbol upgrades and locking wilds. Put on your platform shoes and join the infamous cast of flamboyant characters in this official branded release.

Village People Macho Moves is powered by Microgaming and has 6 reels and 15 paylines. Playable from 15p to £25 a spin on all devices, the game is based on the ionic disco group and has a 70s feel. It comes with special VP wilds which expand to give you wild reels as well as add token to their meter. These meters trigger 1 of 6 free spin features – each with their own extra.

First thing you’ll notice is the excellent soundtrack – it comes with a VP Jukebox to the left of the reel set which contains 5 chart-topping Village People songs – you can choose from Y.M.C.A, Go West, Macho Man and In The Navy. You can play a particular song or cycle through all them.

Visually, Village People Macho Moves is excellent – with a 70s disco feel, you hit the dance floor where you’ll see the legendary characters above their own reel. You will see the construction worker, cowboy, cop, native Indian, biker and sailor.

On the reels you will see hearts, spades, clubs and diamonds as well as sunglasses, dancing shoes, records, microphones and 8-tracks. All symbols pay 3, 4, 5 or 6 times your stake for 3, 4, 5 or 6 on payline. There’s also a wild symbol that substitutes for all symbols.

You’ll notice there’s also a VP Wild symbol – when VP wilds appear on each spin, the VP Wild feature is triggered. When it lands on a reel, the other 2 positions on the reel become wild giving you a wild reel. This can occur on all 6 reels.

You will also notice that each reel has a VP Wild Meter – when a VP wild lands on a reel, a VP wild token is added to that reel’s meter. You can fill that meter by collecting 5 VP wild tokens. Doing so will trigger the reels respective free spins feature – here’s what you can expect from all of them:

  • Reel 1: Construction Worker’s Macho Move feature – 5 free spins with a random multiplier between 2x and 20x applied to each free spin.
  • Reel 2: Cowboy’s Macho Move feature – 5 free spins with 2 to 12 wilds added on every free spin.
  • Reel 3: Cop’s Macho Move feature – 5 free spins with 2 to 4 wild reels on each free spin.
  • Reel 4: Native’s Macho Move feature – 5 free spins with 2 wild reels added on reels 5 and 6 which then march 1 reel left after each free spin.
  • Reel 5: Biker’s Macho Move feature – 5 free spins with the low value royal symbols replaced with 1 of the higher value symbols for bigger wins.
  • Reel 6: Sailor’s Macho Move feature – 5 free spins with 1 to 3 wilds randomly locking in place for every free spin.

Village People Macho Movies is definitely action-packed and offers lots of different extras in the free spins features – the most rewarding is the Construction Worker’s Macho Move feature as a potential 20x multiplier can prove fruitful. With wins of up to 2,400 times your stake on each free spin with 20x multiplier, you need to get ready to boogie down to the hottest disco music ever to hit the dance floor! If you like branded slots, Microgaming also offers you Jurassic World and Game of Thrones.
