Based on one of the most iconic films of all time, Grease reinvigorates the classic 1978 film in a wonderfully nostalgic slot game. Complete with all the famous characters, the slot adaption of the film even features superb renditions of the songs performed in the film. This fabulously cheesy game from Playtech is played on a 5-reel board with 20 pay lines. To win, all players need to do is match landing symbols which fall on the reels in a winning pattern from left to right. Bonus feature for this hair-sprayed, leather jacket-wearing slot includes re-spins with locked symbols, random wilds as well as a “Juke Box” bonus. Bets range from 20p to £20per spin. The max win for Grease the video slot depends on the jackpot which is active at the time of playing. Grease is a medium volatility slot that comes screeching out of the wonderfully stylised era of the late fifties. The return to player percentage is around 94.46 and 95.55%.
Graphics and Theme
Grease, as we all know, is one of the most influential musical films of all time, with an abundance of icons to choose from. The symbols represent the key characters and some of the most famous props from the show. These include the well-oiled Danny Zuko and the beautiful Sandy Olson. Also, the slot makes use of burgers, milkshakes and a white-walled tyre for the free spins scatter. The board is a cleverly rendered jukebox which instead of records, has the reels spinning within its frame. Big wins are accompanied by cut scenes from the film itself, which provide an extra boost of nostalgia. The music is the easiest decision for the designers here, as they can use the rich and immensely popular soundtrack from the movie, which is one of the best-selling albums of all time.
Features are various for this Grease inspired video slot. The first is the “Rockin’ and Rollin’” Resins feature. This is triggered when the Danny or Sandy symbols or the Danny and Sandy symbol occupy reel one fully. If this should happen, you are granted three free re-spins. During these re-spins, all wilds and Danny and Sandy (together) symbols are stuck in place. If the Danny symbol activated the feature, all the Danny symbols will also lock in place – the same is applied to the Sandy symbol. Activating these features gives you a better chance of filling the reels with better-paying symbols.
Second, there is the Sweetheart Wild Symbols feature. This feature is triggered randomly on the base game during any spin. If it is triggered, it means that between 5 and 8 wilds will randomly pop onto the reels.
The third bonus is probably the most exciting and multifaceted. It is called the Jukebox Bonus. This can be accessed when players get the Grease scatter symbol to land at the same time on reels 1, 3 and 5. Activating this bonus will give you a choice of three features.
- Better Shape Up Free Games Feature: For this feature, players are granted 12 free spins with exclusively high symbols and wilds on the reels. As the feature is playing out, all Danny and Sandy symbols are turned into the Danny and Sandy joint symbol.
- Summer Nights Free Games feature: For this feature, players are granted four free spins. However, the Sweetheart Wild Symbols feature applies here for each spin. This means that between 5 and 8 wilds are added on every free spin.
- Rydell High Bonus Feature: This is a pick me style feature which gives players a selection of photos from the high school yearbook to win cash prizes. For each successful pick, players will advance to the next stage where larger and more exciting prizes are on offer. There are five stages in total.
Lastly, there is the Greased Lightning Jackpot feature. This can be accessed at any time in the base game. If it is, players will be guaranteed to win 1 of 2 progressive jackpots. These are the Danny Jackpot or Sandy Jackpot. To win, players have to match three of the same symbols out of a selection of boxes.
