Set in a busy, bustling 1950’s American diner, Vinyl Countdown is a fast-paced online slot game by Microgaming. The attractive 50’s theme brings along with it busy restaurant sound effects and funky 50’s rock n’ roll, jukeboxes, dancers and a range of scrumptious-looking desserts. This is one of Microgaming’s older slots and it shows; there is no backdrop or bonus feature, the graphics are bright but not outstanding, and there are only 9 lines to wager on – all in all this is a basic but enjoyable game.

The vibrant reel symbols feature a couple of typical characters of the 50’s: a smooth-looking guy in a leather jacket and sporting an enormous, slick quiff. There’s an innocent-looking blonde girl with big blue eyes, hair tied in a pink ribbon and wearing a buttoned-up blue cardigan. Both symbols feature a vinyl background…because the 50’s is all about the music of course! It’s all very Grease-the-movie-esque; I’d be very surprised if these two weren’t based on Danny and Sandy! Joining this pair is the silhouette of a couple dancing in front of a heart, and a pair of suave dancing shoes. Those make up the higher value symbols, while the lower value symbols are 5 mouth-watering desserts of huge portion sizes!

The vibrant jukebox symbol is of course, the wild. This symbol will substitute all other icons within Vinyl Countdown apart from the scatter. The scatter – which is represented by the glittering disco ball – will award a win if 3 or more land anywhere on the reels. These scatter wins are added to any pay line wins.

Vinyl Countdown, being one of the more dated games, does not offer any bonus features or free spins.

Verdict

This game is what it is; an attractive game with a really excellent theme, but in comparison with the more modern slot games it is certainly lacking a little excitement. The graphics are pleasant and there are a couple of eye-catching, yet basic animations as the symbols create winning combinations. If you’re prepared for – or a fan of perhaps – simple but appealing slot games then Vinyl Countdown is definitely worth checking out.
