Dubious spelling of “Nite” aside, this title from Microgaming does immediately set the scene of a disco-fuelled oestrogen-filled rampage through the streets of New York, quite possibly with Kool And The Gang’s famous tune of the same name as an accompaniment. But does the action contained in these five reels and nine paylines do the song justice? Yes it does. All nite long.
Think disco, think oestrogen and you can pretty much picture what Microgaming have come up with for the game design and artwork on this classic online slot. Okay, this is a classic slot and the modern slots we are all used to whipping out on our smartphones are much more sophisticated, but smartphones were just a pipe dream in a lab geek’s eye when this slot was taking to the floor.
But take for a moment the ridiculously funky guitar riffs that play when we land any winner across the game’s nine paylines – a small but significant treat that goes a long way to add to this title’s playability. We also only see one Lady across our symbols, perhaps because the others are trying to cram in some dancing or lip-glossing or perfuming, or some other activity suggested by the game’s high symbols. There is one other activity hinted at by the game’s Scatter symbol – a buff topless male waiter with a tray full of shots. So that’s where all the other ladies have been!
Regardless of gender or sexual persuasion, we are all after the pecks on offer from this Waiter Scatter, for he brings with him the promise of a bonus feature (but just not the kind these “Ladies” are after). Landing three or more of him across our five reels launches the games Free Spins bonus feature, in which all wins are tripled.
Furthermore any wins made with the Glitterball Wild will double those wins during the base game, ramping up our bonus winning potential. The Glitterball Wild substitutes for all other symbols except our Waiter friend, and gets us in the mood no matter what funky tune the DJ spins.
This may be one online slot that is heavy on the lip gloss in more ways than one but there is plenty for sausages to get saucy over too. The Glitterball Wild and hot buff Waiter Scatter may not sound like everyone’s great night out, but it is for those precise reasons that we will want to gatecrash this Ladies Nite ’til the early light. Walk of shame, anybody?
