Join Danny and Sandy in Grease – a 5 reel, 20 payline progressive jackpot slot from Playtech which is based on the iconic film (of the same name). Playable from 20p to £20 a spin on all devices, it comes with songs from the film and a wealth of bonus features – you’ll benefit from respins, sweetheart wilds, 2 free spins features, a pick me style game and 2 progressive jackpots. This is definitely the slot that you want!
Set in the Frosty Palace diner from the film, it features songs from the movie as you spin the reels. Graphically superb, it features A, K, Q and J playing cards on vinyl as well as classic cars and milkshakes. You will also see characters from the film such as Betty Rizzo, Kenickie Murdoch, Sandy Olsson and Danny Zuko.
There’s also join Danny and Sandy symbols. The latter 3 can appear as single, 2-high or 3-high stacks with the Danny and Sandy symbol replaces for Danny and Sandy symbols. There is also a wild heart symbol which substitutes for all symbols bar the scatter – 3, 4 or 5 of them on a payline will give you 6, 12.5 or 50 times your stake.
When it comes to features, there are plenty! You have the Rockin’ and a Rollin’ Respins feature which is played when Danny, Sandy or Danny and Sandy symbol occupy reel 1 fully – you will then receive 3 free respins. During the respins, all wilds and Danny and Sandy (joint) symbols lock in place. If Danny triggered the feature, all Danny symbols will also lock in place – the same applies if Sandy triggered the feature. This gives you the chance to fill the reels with the higher paying symbols.
You also have the Sweetheart Wild Symbols feature which is triggered randomly on any base game spin – wild symbols fall from above the reels with between 5 and 8 wilds being randomly added to the reels. This can result in big wins.
Now, Grease is all about the Jukebox Bonus which is accessed when you get the Grease scatter symbol simultaneously on reels 1, 3 and 5 – you then have a choice of 3 bonus features:
- Better Shape Up Free Games feature – you get 12 free spins with only high value symbols and wilds on the reels. During the feature, all Danny and Sandy symbols transform into the Danny and Sandy joint symbol.
- Summer Nights Free Games feature – you get just 4 free spins but the Sweetheart Wild Symbols feature applies on each free spin meaning between 5 and 8 wilds are added on every free spin.
- Rydell High Bonus feature – this pick me style game sees you pick photos from the high school yearbook to win cash prizes. Every successful pick will advance you to the next stage where bigger prizes are on offer – there’s 5 stages in total to wade through.
Finally, Grease comes with a Greased Lightning Jackpot feature – this is accessed at random in the base game. Here, you are guaranteed to win 1 of 2 progressive jackpots – Danny’s Jackpot or Sandy’s Jackpot. You need to open boxes to reveal Danny or Sandy – matching 3 symbols will win you the corresponding jackpot.
Playtech has released many movie slots and they are very good at it – Grease will surely become just as popular as the classic film due to it’s excellent graphics, great soundtrack and wide range of bonus features. I really like the Sweetheart Wild Symbols feature as you can get plenty of wilds – it’s even more lucrative in the Summer Nights Free Games feature as you get up to 8 wilds on every single free spin.
Saying that, you can win up to 1,000 times your stake on each spin/free spin – if you manage to fill the reels with wilds. Variance wise it’s in the middle but provides plenty of entertainment. If you’re a fan of the film, Grease is a must. If you like movie slots, Playtech has plenty (as mentioned) with Gladiator Road to Rome and Top Gun 2 of their better ones.
