Get into the groove with up to 8 wild partners filling up the multi-coloured dance floor in this Disco Spins slot.
We are always excited when NetEnt release new slots. So imagine our surprise when Disco Spins mobile slot showed up as a mobile slot without any big announcements or anyone shouting about it. We can only assume that unlike many of the NetEnt slots out there, the lack of ‘innovative’ bonus features means that most people have not been paying attention to this glitter ball of a slot. But we have.
Oh sure; it has no ‘surprise’ bonus features which often appear in NetEnt games – no dropping eggs, cascading symbols, random multipliers or sticky wilds. However look closely at the mechanics behind the games and you’ll notice some pretty fun things happening in the background.
First of all, the return to player rate is at an incredibly decent 96.4%. This is above average for most slots and casino games out there. Plus It hides a decent jackpot for a slot machine that is fairly low risk.
Secondly, this 5 reels, 3 rows, 20 paylines video slot has not one but two free spins rounds, which when hit, have all the energetic buzz we’ve come to expect from NetEnt free spins games. We particularly recommend the Disco Spins mode – it might not last as long but from what we’ve experienced, pays out better. Still you might be tempted by the regular free spins mode, hoping to win even more free spins, and with it a bigger jackpot. However, in all fairness, the free spins bonus features are far and few between, so think of them as a nice surprise rather than a must for your game play enjoyment.
Thirdly, the betting range is excellent. From 0.20 to £/$/€200, you can play at whatever level you feel comfortable. We like mobile slots that have a mass appeal, and this funky, colourful, disco themed machine is cute enough and funny enough to be enjoyed by men and woman alike.
But where it really stands out from the pack is it’s “Wild Cards“. 8 of them in fact. Any of the cool little dancers on screen could turn wild if they land on a reel that matches their colour. You’ll be watching those colourful spinning reels mix and match to the tune for a while, losing yourself to the 70’s jive and forgetting the 21st century.
What can we say? This Disco Spins slot on mobile is fun, it’s simple, the payout is high, the jackpot is decent and the graphics and sound as funky as anything. Probably won’t be enjoyed by Net Entertainment traditionalists who enjoy their mobile slot games with more ‘fizz’ (ie. more features) but we enjoyed ourselves all the same.

Wild Symbols: The main draw of the game, any of the disco divas on display could give you a winning hit. Seven and eight of the 'dance floor' symbols change and light up in different colours through each spin. If the dancer matching that colour hits the right 'spot' on the reel (matching colour) they then become a Wild, replacing all symbols except scatters. This bonus feature, above the rest, will keep you spinning just like the little dancers in the game do as they turn wild.
Scatters and Free Spins: Get three or more scatter 'Disco Ball' symbols anywhere on the reels to get taken to the 'Free Spins' screen where you'll have the choice of one of two games. The Regular Free Spins mode or the Disco Free Spins Mode. Players beware - this is not a frequent feature and requires a little patience to hit. Free spins can be hit again during both of the bonus rounds and the total win from free spins is added to any wins from the round that activated the free spins.
Regular Free Spins Mode: Why choose the regular free spins? Because you get 15 of them and they come with a 3x multiplier, that's why. Your standard free spins with a fairly decent chance of hitting some big wins. That said, with only two scatter symbols needed to get an additional 3 free spins, the regular sessions tends to last longer than the 'disco free spins', which will appeal to players who like their bonus rounds to last longer and get small wins, rather than short but with big wins. In one of the free spins rounds we managed to get 33 of them simply for hitting two scatter symbols repeatedly.
Disco Free Spins Mode: With only 10 rather than 15 free spins, and no multiplier, this will undoubtedly make many people shy away from this bonus feature and go for the regular. But don't be fooled, by removing half the symbols on the reels and leaving only the disco dancers, your chances of getting more wilds and bigger wins improve significantly. The chance of hitting this feature again is far smaller than in the regular game, but we preferred it. Put this down to personal taste rather than gospel.
If only the free spins bonus feature hit a little more often, Disco Spins mobile slot could be another five star review. As it is, it's fun, it's funky and the multiple wilds and high return to player rate brings it head and shoulders above many of the mobile games out there.
For those who like their slot machines fun, simple and energetic.
