Overview Of Funk Master

It’s about to get wild, hot, and groovy with the latest slot by NetEnt, Funk Master! With its ’70s aesthetic, the funky music, and the glittering visuals, it just screams party all day long. This slot is the next best thing to a time machine to experience the disco era while getting a chance at big wins, so get your disco pants, bring your dance moves, and get ready for a genuine blast from the past!

Slot Description

Funk Master™ looks and feels like a ’70s dance party. All symbols in this 8-row, 8-reel slot are shiny disco balls that fall into position through the Avalanche™ mechanic. Wins trigger the Avalanche feature. This consists of symbols that cascade down the screen. When you form a winning combination on a pay line, the symbols disappear and are replaced by other falling symbols. The more winning bet lines you get, the more avalanches that occur. And the best bit is while all this is happening you have Zapp and Roger Doo Wa Ditty playing in the background!

A big feature in the game is the Dancing Wild Hotspot, a 2×2 square area that is randomly placed on the reels at the start of each spin in the main game. When symbols within this square become part of a winning cluster, their positions are unlocked and remain unlocked as symbols tumble.

It gets even better in Free Spins. In Free Spins, the Dancing Wilds Hotspot is a 3×3 square area. Unlocking all Dancing Wilds Hotspot positions in Free Spins awards TWO Dancing Wild symbols AND expands the reels 1 row up. The maximum possible number of rows is 12. In both the main game and Free Spins, the awarded Dancing Wild symbols randomly appear on one of the empty Dancing Wilds Hotspot positions.

If all positions become unlocked during one game round, you get awarded 1 Dancing Wild symbol. These can appear anywhere on the reels in the main game and in Free Spins. Whenever they form part of a winning cluster, they don’t disappear, but rather boogie on over into an empty position that is horizontally, vertically, or diagonally adjacent. Very similar to Jammin Jars.

Multipliers are the bomb… literally! Multipliers are shown as lit fuse bombs and can appear anywhere on the reels in the main game and Free Spins. Multiplier symbols are not considered a part of the winning cluster; instead, they multiply the total win from the spin by their value: x2, x3, x5, or x10. If two or more Multiplier symbols appear on the reels during the same spin in the main game or Free Spins, the total win from that spin is multiplied by the sum of their values.

As great as the main game is, you really want to get into Free Spins, by hook or by crook (you can now buy your way into free spins with the Buy feature). Free Spins is the area of the disco where the fat cats hang. Dance your way into Free Spins! Collect 3 or more Dancing Wild symbols to activate 6 Free Spins. The Dancing Wilds that activated Free Spins stay on the reels and remain until the end of Free Spins. 

Funk Master Paytable

The paytable in Funk Master is dynamic and changes with your stake, the example below is set to €1 per spin for simplicity. To start off we have the regular disco ball which pays 5x for a max cluster of 20+ symbols.

The Purple and Teal disco balls also pay the same 5x as above.

Moving on we have the Pink and Green disco balls paying 10x for a max cluster.

The Yellow disco ball also pays 10x for a max cluster and finally we have the Orange disco ball paying considerably more at 25x for 20 or more symbols.

Stick a couple of x10 Bomb Multipliers in the mix and you can see 500x plus wins in a single cascade!

Final Thoughts On Funk Master

Funk Master has an RTP of 96.04%, a volatility rating of high and a max win of 3,337x stake which compared to Jammin Jars 20,000x potential is a bit of a let down but the game is still enjoyable to play and far less volatile which suits some players needs more. 

To sum the game up, the graphics are simple, the soundtracks as cool as eating a box of Polo mints whilst sat in the North Pole and the gameplay isn’t rushed with the Bomb multipliers taking there time to explode. Overall it’s a game that I’d play again if only for the soundtrack!

So are you ready for the disco fever? Get down with your bad self! Funk Master is the grooviest slot this side of the ’70s. If you want to join the party there’s a link below to a TGC trusted casino, thanks for reading and take it steady!
