Grease Slots Slot Review
Back in August, William Hill exclusively launched the new Grease slot game from Playtech. That exclusivity hasn’t lasted long because now other Playtech brands are hosting the game. Grease the Slot is based on the film that made John Travolta and Olivia Newton John household names. It’s a 20 payline, 5 reel slot that takes you to the time of Rydell High, The T-Birds and The Pink Ladies. The big question though is this the one that you want?
About Grease Slots
The slot is set in an American Diner, just like where Frenchy has her Beauty School Dropout number. The main symbols are Sandy & Danny together plus individual Sandy and Danny. These symbols can be stacked. Joining them on the reels are Rizzo and Kenickie plus milkshakes and a classic car. The remaining symbols are A, J, K and Q and these all have a vinyl record look. Hearts are wilds and the Grease symbol represents the game’s scatter.
Play From 20p A Spin
Wagering on Grease starts at 20p but this adjusts up to a maximum £20. An Autoplay mode is available alongside a Turbo option although expect these options to be dropped by the end of 2021. All spins are accompanied by sounds that resemble the hits of the film. However, we think there’s been a bit of tweaking so that they don’t always hit the right note. We wonder whether that’s a copyright issue.
Rockin & Rollin Respins
The Grease slot has many features including Rockin and Rollin Respins. Land Danny or Sandy stacked on reel 1 to lock all their symbols in place for 3 respins. Hearts and Danny + Sandy symbols also lock. Similarly, the Danny + Sandy stacked icon on reel 1 also locks in place for 3 respins. In this case all Danny and Sandy symbols convert to the combined symbol.
Another feature to look out for is the Sweetheart Wilds. This can occur at any time during the base game and can result in up to 8 wilds on any spin. Get three Grease symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 to activate the Jukebox bonus round. Pick from 12 Better Shape Up free games, cash from the Rydell High year book or 4 Summer Nights free games. During the Rydell High Bonus feature you’ll actually see clips from the film! Joining all these features is a Sandy and Danny progressive jackpot. This can be won any time during the main game.
The Spin On Grease Slots
Grease slot is a lot of fun and Playtech have done an excellent job of submersing players in the Rydell High experience. The graphics are good and the soundtrack conjures up plenty of memories. Slots wise there’s enough here to keep us entertained. We found that the features were quite good. The Rockin & Rollin plus Sweetheart Wilds popped up quite regularly to generate decent wins. If you’re not a fan of Grease then you’ll probably baulk at the slot, otherwise – at least for a short time – this is the one that you’ll want to play. RTP (preferably UKGC Recorded* over theoretical): 95.55%
