Dirty Dancing Slots

Playtech invites you to revive your energy and relive the cult dance romance Dirty Dancing released in 1987. It comes as no surprise that the resourceful software developer decided to bring to life the epic love story after exactly three decades by developing the slot of the same name. The musical title is sure to delight many with a whole plethora of rewarding extras such as the free spins feature, multipliers, Wilds and two progressive jackpots on top. Whether a great movie fan or not, the lively slot will get you dancing in no time with its fast-paced action on the reels and a number of ways to win really big.

How to Play

Overall, it doesn't seem the casino developer was preoccupied with the visual aspects of the game, which appear rather dated and kitsch, although, it could be that they just wished to hark back to the days when the film itself came out. The graphics have a real retro flavor to them with pink tones dominating the whole interface whereas each bonus game starts off with a movie clip to further highlight the vibrant atmosphere. Gameplay wise, we would say that Whirling Wilds are essential to creating the most lucrative wins. Otherwise, the movie-inspired title provides smaller but fairly regular winning combos that will keep you entertained for long. Johnny assumes the role of Wild and is the most generous one on the reels, granting 5,000 coins for aligning 5 of them on a single line. Scatters are represented by the game's logo and awards 5x, 25x, and 125x your stake for landing 3, 4 or 5 of them respectively anywhere on the reels.

Betting Options and Payout

Dirty Dancing uses 5 reels and 40 fixed paylines and, even though the lines cannot be manually adjusted, you are free to choose the bet per line value which ranges between $0.01 and $10. That being said, if you are into high-rolling, it will be useful to know that the highest stake per spin equals $400. The 2017 release also boasts 2 progressive jackpots where you will be required to open 3 out of 9 boxes and reveal special characters linked to that round. Both of them are activated randomly and which progressive jackpot you grab is determined by the pick-and-choose game in which you will need to find 3 Johnny or 3 Baby icons to qualify for it in the first place. Finally, you can wager anywhere between $0.40 and $400 per spin, so the slot caters to the needs of both high-rollers and those on a tight budget.

Symbols and Extra Features

Speaking of symbols that populate the reels, you will encounter the traditional low-value playing card icons along with a jukebox disc, radio, dancing shoes and open-top car, to name a few. In addition, you will come across the much loved movie protagonists, such as Penny, Baby and Johnny. The latter acts as Wild symbol, substituting for all others on the reels apart from Scatters. It can award the impressive amount of 5,000 coins if you succeed in landing 5 of them on a payline. Scatters are represented by the Dirty Dancing logo that can provide you with the amazing 125x your bet once you land 5 of them anywhere in view. Playtech has made sure there is no shortage of bonus features that are highly potent and rewarding. During the Whirling Wilds feature, you will see both Johnny and Baby dancing on the reels, while also converting up to 6 symbols into Wilds. They remain on the reels on every free spin and randomly shift positions during the free spins mode. In the Mambo Free Games you will turn the Bonus wheel in order to win Mambo modifiers and get additional 3, 4 or 5 free spins, Dancing Wilds or a 2x multiplier. Once the wheel stops on Collect, the free spins feature will be activated. When you trigger the Dirty Dancing Bonus, you will get the chance to scoop various cash prizes by assisting Baby choose the right boxes. If you collect 3 objects of a kind, you will advance to the next level. Only if you reach the final, sixth level, will you launch the Time of My Life Jackpot game where you need to open boxes to uncover either three Baby or 3 Johnny icons and thus be granted one of the two Jackpots. Keep in mind that Johnny is the most lucrative one among the two.
