While the Karaoke Party slot machine from Microgaming doesn’t require you to sing, with the fantastic upbeat tunes that blare in the background and the awesome wins that seem to come in thick and fast, you are going to end up doing it anyway!
Karaoke Party is a 5 reel, 9 payline slot machine from Microgaming. The minimum amount per spin is 9p with the maximum amount being £45. This puts it on the lower end of the spectrum when it comes to the price of online slot machines. We love this.
We feel as though it provides a decent ‘entry point’ for those who are looking to tinker around with some online slot machines without blowing a wad of cash.
The theme of this game, if you haven’t guessed already, is Karaoke. The reels are adorned with symbols depicting groups of people singing (you guessed it!) karaoke.
There are a few scatter symbols and some ‘minor’ symbols thrown in there for good measure. The theme is capped off with an upbeat pop-style soundtrack.
It does sound brilliant, at least far better than the theme that many other slot machines on the market seem to boast nowadays. While the theme doesn’t really play into the way in which the game functions all that much, it is passable and we have no real complaints with it. If you are a little bit put off by the theme, we urge you not to be. It is a brilliant game despite it!
This is a slot machine which falls on the simpler side of the spectrum. Most of the wins that you pick up in the game will come during the base game. All you need to do play the base game is set the number of win lines you want to play, set the amount you wish to gamble, and hit that spin button.
If you want to make the game even easier to play, then you can just hit the auto-play button. This actually functions pretty well in the game as the slot machine doesn’t boast any special features (we are going to discuss the only feature soon) which requires you to actually think, or even do anything.
As mentioned previously, this is a game which has been designed to be simple to play. As a result, the game isn’t really packing a punch on the feature front.
Normally this turns us away from a machine, but the game still plays well. We feel as though this is a great game for a beginner, or maybe an experienced player who is tired of having to keep track of 3+ features in a single slot machine.
Free spins: in order to trigger the only feature in the Karaoke Party slot machine, you will need 3 or more scatters on the reels. They can appear anywhere. This will give you fifteen free spins.
All of your winnings on the free spins will be subject to a 3x multiplier. During the free spins, you may find three more scatters. This will award you with a total of thirty spins, the maximum you can get in this game.
A couple of days before we wrote this article (August 2016), the mobile version of the Karaoke Slot machine was released. We tinkered around with it for a few days, and we quickly worked out that Microgaming has done a pretty decent job at it. The game plays well. We tried it on a few devices, both old and new, and there was no slowdown. The features are exactly the same as the ‘desktop version’, so if you have played that game and enjoyed it, you are going to love taking Karaoke Party ‘on the go’.
To be honest, the theme of the game didn’t really draw us in at the start. We have seen better from Microgaming. However, after being urged to jump into Karaoke Party Slot by a number of people, we decided to give it a whirl.
We are glad that we did. We are a sucker for free spins in slot machines, and they seem to come in thick and fast when you play Karaoke Party Slot. If you are in the same boat as us, then this game is going to sit right at the top of your ‘I must regularly play’ pile. As a result, this game is highly recommended by us! You are able to play the Karaoke Slot machine on any website which offers Microgaming slots.
