Microgaming’s Karaoke Party Slots Coming in AugustTia Winter | 5 July 2016
Karaoke Party, a new video online pokie by Microgaming, is set for release in early August. Inspired by one of Asia’s most popular forms of entertainment, this vibrant, energetic game has five reels, nine paylines, and various bonus features.
The background, coloured lights, and other graphics evoke the countless karaoke bars of Taiwan and Japan, where the form of musical entertainment is taken very seriously. After all, it was in Japan that musician Daisuke Inoue invented the first karaoke machine in 1971.
Sing Along and Win
Karaoke surged in popularity across Asia and has spread to the rest of the world; it’s now a popular activity with all age groups. Microgaming’s Karaoke Party pays tribute to the favourite past time, and with a 150 000 top payout it may inspire a few dreams.
Apart from low value 10, Jack, Queen, King, and Ace playing card symbols in luminous colours, the reel symbols offer a glimpse into any of the karaoke bars of the Far East. There is a trio of young men obviously inspired by K-Pop, a young woman giving it her all in a blue boob-tube, a young man with the fingers of one hand in a V for victory sign, a young couple belting out a duet, and three young women who are clearly an all girl band. Also on the reels are red dice and the game logo, which are the Scatter and Wild symbols, respectively.
The Karaoke Party Scatter symbol is what triggers the new online slot’s bonus game, in which players receive 15 free spins with a 3x multiplier for any wins they land on those spins.
The game logo Wild symbol does what all Wilds do, which is to substitute for other reel symbols. When the Wild forms part of a winning combination, that payout will be doubled.
Engaging, Rewarding Online Pokies Action
As is the case with most of Microgaming’s other video online slots, Karaoke Party has a flexible betting range. The game will also be available across online and mobile platforms, where it can be played for free or for real money.
However, players won’t be singing along while playing the soon to be released slot. While the graphics, animations, and quality of the soundtrack are what can be expected from the software developer, the game doesn’t appear to contain the backing tracks of any hits, nor do colour-changing words spill out across the screen. Regardless, it looks set to be another fun and rather light-hearted release from Microgaming, and will surely get your toes tapping.
