to launch highly anticipated Village People Macho Moves Slot.
Just over a year ago today, Microgaming made the announcement
that it had secured a licensing deal with ITV Studios Global
Entertainment to produce the world’s very first branded
Village People slot machine. Being the most iconic disco band
of the 1970s, the response was overwhelmingly positive.
Then in February of this year, the Isle of Man-based iGaming
production company teased us with a bit more info. They issued a few
early production screenshots, and announced that the task of building
this highly anticipated new game had been assigned to one of their
premier independent content producers, Fortune Factory Studios.
A release date was tentatively set for June 2019. Now that the
foretold month has arrived, we finally have an exact date when the Village People Online Slot will go live, and it’s just
around the corner!
Village People Macho Moves Slot coming June 24
Fortune Factory’s hard work will come to fruition on Monday when the
new Village People slot goes live at Microgaming casinos. While we
haven’t had a chance to play the game just yet, a plethora of
details, screenshots and a teaser promo video have been made
available, answering all of our intended questions.
Village People: Macho Moves is a 6×3 reel slot machine
with 15 paylines and a bet range of $0.20 to $25 per spin, capable of
delivering a max payout of 146,125 coins. It’s compatible with all
major desktop, mobile and tablet operating systems and is equipped
with a 96% RTP and medium variance for balanced payouts and win
The game packs all of the celebrated musical group’s greatest hits
into the VP Jukebox, including billboard toppers like Can’t
Stop the Music, In the Navy, Macho Man, YMCA and more.
All of our favorite singing characters are present, rendered in
fabulous caricature style; the construction worker, cowboy, police
officer, chief, biker and sailor.
The game’s symbols include memorabilia from the era, like platform
shoes, 8-track cartridges, record albums and more. There are two
types of wilds – standard Wilds and VP Wilds. Both substitute for
other standard symbols to line up winning combinations, but VP Wilds
have another use, helping to trigger the game’s six bonus features.
Village People Bonus Features
Each of the six Village People characters dance atop a reel. When a VP Wild Token appears on a reel, it is collected in the
progress meter for the character who stands above it. It takes 5
tokens to fill a progress meter. When full above a reel, that
character’s special VP Bonus Feature is activated.
