Fans of the 90’s trance scene will fall in love with this video slot. Its pumping equaliser graphics, neon-coloured display and record-spinning wilds will have players reminiscing of sticky dancefloors and dancing all night long in no time. This club banger of a slot game has been brought to us by Relax Gaming and takes place on a conventional 5-reel, 4-row board. Players have 30 available pay lines to find wins. Creating wins is as simple as matching the brightly coloured symbols on these pay lines from left to right. Bonus features are generous in this game, taking the form of 4 free spins rounds and a re-spins round triggered by the collection of scatters. The top-paying symbol pays players 15x its stake for five on a pay line in the base game too, so players should keep an eye out for that. The betting range for this night-life inspired spin fest, is between 10p to £100 per spin. Using the progressive multiplier bonus in one of the spins rounds will give you the chance to win the max pay-out which we estimate to be between 1,000 to 2,000 x your stake.
Graphics and Theme
The retro primary coloured dance theme is executed with precision in this slot game and is a refreshing theme that is not often adopted by video slot creators. The background for the board gives the impression of multicoloured sound waves being emitted from the left and right of the screen. This gives the game a sense of dynamic energy and movement, which is carried throughout the game’s look and feel. The extra features are all located to the right-hand side of the screen, represented as equaliser displays with appropriately music-themed names such as ‘Big Bass Sticky Wilds’. The backing track unsurprisingly is bumping 90’s trance music. However, the creators have been considerate enough to hush the bass tones and volume to atmospheric levels. This means that players can enjoy the music without it being too distracting of an element which would detract from the overall experience.
Amped comes with a variety of features which all stem from the collection of scatters in the base game. The game has four different types of scatters in four distinct colours. Each one corresponds to a different free spins round. In addition to their powers to trigger these bonus games, scatters also serve in this game as wilds. This means that they can also be substituted for regular symbols to helps players win combos.
Wilds/scatters are worth the same as the highest paying regular symbol and will pay out 15x your stake when five land on any pay line. The re-spins feature is triggered when any two of these scatters land on the reels in the same spin. Scatters are then stuck to their positions, from that point on you are granted re-spins if players keep landing new scatters with each spin.
This re-spins feature continues until players do not land any fresh scatters. Alternatively, the feature can end if players trigger a subsequent bonus round by landing three scatters on one spin. There are four bonus rounds that can be entered into at this point. For each of them, players are awarded seven free spins. However, each round comes with its modifier depending on the colour of the scatters which you collect. These are explained in the following:
- Three or more orange scatters collected – Grants players seven free spins with Electro Expanding Wilds (these are wilds that take up the whole reel, therefore giving players more chance of winning combos).
- Three or more red scatters collected- Grants players seven free spins with the BMP Boost Multiplier. Players with this bonus benefit from an increasing total multiplier (after each win the multiplier increases by 1).
- Three or more green scatters collected – Grants players seven free spins with the Big Bass Sticky Wilds. These wilds become stuck in place when they land and so offer greater chances to win prizes with more wilds on the board.
- Three or more blue scatters – Grants players seven free spins with Remix Synced Reels. This feature means that a minimum of 2 reels will display the same symbols when they land. All the reels can be synced for bigger combo wins.
Although none of the bonus rounds can be retriggered, one extra free spin will be rewarded for every scatter you land during the feature.
Relax Gaming make setting up and playing the game easy with settings available in the menu which runs across the bottom of the screen. Here you can set the wager per spin, as well as the win and loss limits using the appropriately named tools. After these settings have been confirmed, players are free to spin the reels. Players can either spin manually or set up automatic spins. To land wins, players must land matching symbols across the available pay lines.
