Microgaming hits the charts with Village People® Macho Moves

Ready to strut their stuff across the reels, the Kings of Disco join Microgaming’s award-winning portfolio of branded content in Village People® Macho Moves, developed exclusively by Fortune Factory Studios.

Village People® Macho Moves busts out the grooviest vibes of the high-energy 70s disco scene in this fast-paced six-reel15-payline online slot. The infamous cast of flamboyant characters fill the dancefloor with truly fabulous features, including expanding wilds and free spins with six unique bonuses.

Sparkling symbols bring the flashy disco club to life, depicting retro platform shoes, vintage sunglasses and mirror balls. Six fully-animated Village People® characterisations break out their Macho Moves on podiums above the dazzling reels, shaking their hips to five chart-topping hits from the VP Jukebox, including Y.M.C.A., Macho Man and In The Navy.

During the base game, landing expanding VP Wild symbols can lead the way to the hottest wins, creating full wild reels and awarding a VP Wild token to the meter above that reel.

Filling a meter with five tokens awards five free spins boosted with a Macho Move bonus feature unique to each member of the Village People®:

  • The Construction Worker stacks up a random multiplier, awarding between two and 20 times the win value before each spin.
  • The Cowboy lassoes between two to 12 random wilds prior to each spin.
  • The Cop hauls in two to four random wild reels prior to each spin.
  • The Native creates two walking wild reels, which march from right to left on every spin.
  • The Biker goes full throttle with symbol upgrades replacing all low-paying symbols with one high-paying symbol on every spin.
  • And the Sailor mans the decks for locking wilds, with one to three wild symbols appearing on each spin and remaining locked in place for all remaining spins.

Players have a chance of chasing truly far out wins should multiple meters fill up on a single spin, causing each Macho Move to play out in sequence.

Bursting with highly-entertaining visuals, mega-hit disco grooves and a thrilling variety of gameplay features, Village People® Macho Moves is available exclusively to Microgaming operators from Tuesday 25 June.
