Microgaming has slots fans dancing YMCA with new Village people slot

Microgaming develops new Village People slotFortune Factory Studios created a branded slot referring to the 1970s disco music band, Village People, on behalf of the British igaming provider, Microgaming. Village People Macho Moves is a 6-reel, 15-payline, fast-paced slot which includes six animated Village People members who stand above the reels and each of them delivers a different bonus round.

All of the important members of the group that disco fans love are present: The Cop, The Native, The Cowboy, The Sailor, The Leather Man and the Construction Worker. The characters have a meter under them that when it is filled with five tokens found on the reels will lead to a unique bonus round and will activate the Macho Moves of each character. Of course the biggest hits of the band are used as the soundtrack of the game.

Head of game production of Fortune Factory Studios, Phelan Sykes, commented that they desired the game to have the personality traits of the band. He added that it is important for the players to have this excessive energy feeling that Village People possessed as a band and the built-in Village People jukebox which contains their songs, helps a lot towards this direction. Moreover, Sykes stated that equal attention was paid to the features of the game like free spins as well as to the win prospects for the players who can potentially get 5,845 times their bet back.

Jean-Luc Ferriere, chief commercial officer at Microgaming, expressed his delight that the slot was carefully designed to include “all that’s great about the iconic band”, with five of their songs playing on rotation. Furthermore, he praised Fortune Factory Studios for managing to combine the tributing elements of the slot with pioneering gameplay features without losing sight of the fact that players mostly focus; the win potential.

Microgaming had released music slots in the past; Karaoke Party and Heavy Metal but this is their first attempt with a branded music artist. The UK provider followed the successful lead of NetEnt who released the series, ‘NetEnt Rocks’, tributing slots to Guns ‘n’ Roses, Jimmy Hendrix and Motorhead.
