Vinyl Countdown Pokie

Themed around the 1950’s Rock and Roll culture, Vinyl Countdown is a 5 reel pokie that matches the old style with equally old-fashioned gameplay. With little in the way of bonus features, this is certainly not a game for lovers of extra rounds like free spins, but equally, there are lots of people who like to simply spin the reels and see what happens, and this game is aimed firmly at that crowd.

It’s a very colourful game however, with eye-catching images of the sort of dishes served up in an ice-cream parlour of the era, along with dancers, a rocker, his girl, blue suede shoes and a record. Surrounded by neon lettering and a chrome design to make it look like a jukebox that adds to the Americana theme, there could be a whole lot of spinnin’ going on when players get to these reels.

Let the Good Times Roll

Those players old enough to remember the late 1950’s, or anyone who has watched American Graffiti or Grease, will feel a wave of nostalgia when they open up this game.

As well as 5 reels, it has 9 paylines to bet on, with an option to activate any number of them and have stakes of between 0.01 and 90.00 per spin, with wins coming from landing 2, 3 or more of the same symbol, across an active line on adjacent reels running from the left side.

Colourful numbers down each side of the reels show players where each line starts and finishes and to find out how much they are due to win each time symbols line up favourably, they should head to the payout table.

This is a simple, single page list of how many times the per line bet is won each time, along with details of the basic bonus features that The Vinyl Countdown comes with.

A chocolate sundae will pay back 1x, 5x or 50x the line bet when 3, 4 or 5 land across a line and going up in value we see a gooey chocolate-covered cake, ice cream and waffles, a sundae with everything thrown in and a banana split which returns 5x, 25x and 250x the line bet.

While these are likely to be the symbols seen most frequently, they are all colourful and well-presented in their own right, while the shoes, dancers, a girl who looks much like Sandy from Grease and a guy who looks like Danny only need to be on reels 1 and 2 on an active line to be worth a payout.

The shoes are worth between 1x and 300x when they stop in the right places with Danny paying out between 4x and 900x, which at the maximum bet of 10.00 per line equals 40.00 to 9000.00.

Bonus Bits

Although it’s hardly packed with bonus features, there are a couple of things here that stop it being just a matter of landing lines of symbols and nothing more.

The most important extra is the old-style jukebox that has ‘Wild’ written across it. This means that it will substitute for all bar the scatter to help complete winning lines and while there’s no value attached to the wild on its own, it can’t help but make up winning combinations when landing on at least reels 1 and 2 at once, as any other symbol in the line that stops on reel 3 will be enough to equal a payout.

The other bonus symbol is the vinyl record with the game title overlaid on it, which is a scatter, meaning that it can be literally scattered across the reels in any 2 or more positions to reward players with a prize. Instead of just the line bet, this will pay multiple times the total amount staked per spin, with 2 scatters equalling a 5x win. There’s 50x, 500x or 1000x the bet returned to players lucky enough to see 3, 4 or 5 scatters land at once.

Money Honey, or Ain’t it a Shame?

There’s a lot to like about the Vinyl Countdown, with a nice design that’s sure to appeal to fans of the 1950’s scene. All the symbols are related to the theme, for a colourful and interesting set of reels that can be played with a wide range of bet sizes.

While some may give this pokie a miss thanks to the lack of bonus rounds, many others will be drawn to it for just that reason, so the decision on whether to give these retro reels a spin or not largely depends on how much people like their extra features.
