What is this mobile slot about?

Playtech sucker punch any fans of the movie with this very mediocre Dirty Dancing slot machine.

Quick, name the most memorable bit about the Dirty Dancing movie? Did you say “No one puts baby in the corner”? Ok, how about the other bit?

Yes, the music. The wonderful, wonderful music to a classic cheesy wonderful coming of age through dance (and sex) tale.

And yet, not one of the original songs show up in this Playtech Dirty Dancing slot – what happened?

Sabotages the theme and the game play

In case it wasn’t already a little bit obvious, we’re fans of the original movie. What? One half of us was a 14 year old girl once.

So here we are, with 5×4 reels and 40 paylines full of generic 1950s symbols and characters that barely look like the actors.

Baby actually looks like a smug princess you want to punch in the face, Penny has clearly been replaced by Phoebe from Friends, and Patrick Swayze is currently rolling in his grave.

All set on a glittery pink background because that’s what girls like? We guess? This is almost as insulting as Dr Lovemore by Playtech.

This Dirty Dancing game isn’t even a good slot

We are going to admit something pretty bad: generally speaking we’ve played on some god ugly slots because we knew that, deep down, they hid big wins.

The Books of Ra Deluxe game isn’t the prettiest, but it’s got a great personality and puts out for our wallet.

The same can’t be said for this Dirty Dancing video slot which sees very few decent wins or hope for them either.

Yes it’s a jackpot slot, but then so are literally hundreds of the many Playtech slot machines out there.

The two Dirty Dancing bonus games don’t help

One are free spins where you can get up to 30 with a 2x multiplier.

Getting that multiplier is hard work – and even when we did, and caught the multiplier, we still only just managed to get 18 times our bet.

As for the click me game, it’s for show at best, making you think you might win the jackpot, but generally keeping you in the corner where you below.

This Dirty Dancing slot is disappointing. It’s like the released it hoping nostalgia was enough. Well, it isn’t Playtech. Go back, revisit what made your Superman slot great, and try again please.

In-game bonus features

Wilds: Patrick Swayze (the guy in case you were born after 2000) is the wild symbol and he can substitute for all other symbols over the 40 paylines to create a win. He does not replace the scatter symbol.

Whirling Wilds: Watch as Johny and Baby dance across the screen and spin wild onto the reels. You usually get around 4 to 6 extra wilds on screen, and probably the only way to get anything over 5x your bet in the base game.

This feature triggers randomly during any spin.

Dirty Dancing Jackpot Game: Open boxed to reveal either Baby or Johnny symbols. Match 3 to win one of the two jackpots.

Triggers if you get far enough in the Dirty Dancing click me bonus.

Dirty Dancing Bonus: Theres 5 cash levels, and in each level you click boxes to reveal cash prizes or collect. The last level, if you get there, brings you to the jackpot picking game.

Simple and not much more to it than that - you get maybe around 10x your bet.

Mambo Free Games: Get 3 scatters anywhere on screen and you'll trigger a free spin mini game.

Here you spin a wheel to collect free spins, a random 2x multiplier, or a dancing wild.

Mostly you end up with around 20 free spins and no multiplier or dancing wild. The fact that you have to fight for a multiplier you get as standard in games like Prosperity Palace slot left a sour taste in our mouth.

And even when we did get the dancing wild, which is one wild reel floating from one side to the other, the wins where not much more impressive.


Closing thoughts

As fans of the movie we really, really, wanted to like this Dirty Dancing slot on mobile.

So imagine our double disappointment when it not only ruined the memory of the game, but with bad graphics and sounds, barely made it remember the movie at all.

And if it didn't get us with nostalgia, it certainly not getting us with the little wins you get over 40 paylines and bonus games that are time wasters... at best.

We are going to ignore this effort, play on the Halloween slot, and hope that they lose the license to someone else in the future.
