Grease Slots

The world was a different place back in the 1970s. We think it had something to do with the fact you had a whole generation grow up with the idea the world could end at any time thanks to nuclear war and wipe away any proof of the silliness that they wrought upon the world. Long hair often shaped in the oddest ways, a fashion sense that seemed based on replicating a glowing neon sign and both the curse and blessing of being without the internet to forever document them for the future amusement of their children and grandchildren. When Grease came out, the movie was insanely popular, and it’s fair to say a lot of modern romance movie tropes may have sourced their way from this classic movie. So it’s only fair for that movie to receive the highest honour it can get, at least, according to us. And that’s a slot tie-in to the movie! Gamblers will be able to enjoy a 5x3 playing field with 20 fixed paylines and several bonuses on offer. Two progressive jackpots, three different free spins bonuses and even re-spins are all available.

How to Play

The slot is based in the familiar setting of the diner from the movie, which provides a very iconic look that will make anyone who watched the flick feel right at home. There’s not much in terms of animation, unfortunately, as all the attention clearly went to what’s on the reels more so than what you will find on the backdrop behind it. While Playtech isn’t bad when it comes to graphics, it’s clear they really didn’t do much beyond what they had to for this release. We just want to highlight that Grease looks perfectly fine as it is. But we know the developer can do better. Fortunately, while the artists took a slight break, the team behind the gameplay showed they know how to keep people hooked. For some, having two progressive jackpots to access would be more than enough. Instead, Grease takes it a step further and adds a boatload of bonuses on top of that to keep players interested in what they’re selling, and it works spectacularly. The title has medium volatility and with so many bonuses you’re never too far away from hitting one, though, as a result of their frequency, the pays can usually be somewhat disappointing.

Betting Options and Payout

You can play Grease for $0.20 up to $20 per spin, which provides a decent range that will appease everyone except the highest echelon of serious gamblers who can afford to bet more than $20 per spin. During normal gameplay, the title can reward a progressive jackpot at random. Once the feature is active, you click the reel full of Grease logos until you uncover three Danny or Sandy symbols. The one you collect first is the progressive jackpot you will be rewarded with.

Symbols and Extra Features

You won’t be particularly blown away by the icons either. You have playing card symbols J, Q, K and A as covers on top phonograph records, the shiny car and milkshake, the two rival love interests from the movie, and, of course, Danny and Sandy, both as separate symbols, and as a single joint one. Speaking of which, if Danny or Sandy symbol cover the first reel entirely, they lock all their symbols in place for three re-spins and the joint Danny & Sandy symbol counts too. However, if the joint Danny & Sandy symbol locks the reel in that way, all separate Danny and Sandy icons will transform into the joint one for the duration of the re-spins. At any random point, Sweetheart Wilds can occur, which creates up to eight Wilds on the playing field. Collecting three Scatters on the first, third and fifth reel at the same time can reward three different free spins bonuses. The first one rewards 12 free spins which only has Wilds and high paying symbols and as an added bonus, all Danny and Sandy symbols become the joint Danny & Sandy icon. The second bonus has 4 free spins with up to 8 Wilds appearing on each reel spin. The last is a point and click game in which you pick photos to get cash prizes and advance in levels.

Our Verdict

If we’re being perfectly honest, Grease gives us little more than the feeling of being average. The wins can be cool and the features on offer are solid, but there’s some core part of it missing that stops us from giving it the best score we can. Still, if it looks like your sort of thing, we certainly won’t tell you to stop yourself from trying it.
