Funkmaster Slot in a nutshell
NetEnt opts for fun and detailed visuals for this release. Funkmaster’s thrilling theme and graphics are made even better with its 96.04% RTP. High volatility accompanies the above-average RTP. Bigger wins are possible, but they are not easy to achieve. If you plan on winning big, you will need Lady Luck on your side.
Fortunately, the game’s many bonuses give Lady Luck plenty of opportunities to help out. The Avalanche feature allows for a potentially endless stream of wins. Dancing Wilds can substitute for existing icons and are used to trigger free spins. Free spins allow us to temporarily expand the playing field, while multipliers boost all payouts when they appear. We need a more detailed look at these various bonuses to utilize them fully.
Avalanche removes all symbols that were part of a winning combination from the board. Existing icons fall to take their place while new symbols appear from the top of the board. Additional winning combinations also have their winning icons removed. Avalanche continues until no new winning combinations are possible.
Dancing Wilds can appear anywhere on the board during normal gameplay and free spins. They can replace any symbol except for Scatters. A Dancing Wild that is part of a winning cluster does not disappear. Instead, it moves to an open position horizontally, diagonally, or vertically adjacent. The Avalanche bonus plays out after the Dancing Wild boogies away. These Wilds can be part of more than one winning combination.
Dancing Wild Hotspot
The Dancing Wild Hotspot is a 2×2 area on the eight-reel playing field. During free spins, the hotspot area increases to a 3×3 square instead. When symbols in that area become part of the winning combination, they become unlocked. Unlock all icons in the hotspot to receive a Dancing Wild. The Wild will always appear in one of the empty hotspot positions.
Multipliers appear as individual icons on the playing field and can occur during normal gameplay and free spins. These symbols are not part of the winning cluster. Instead, they award the increased payout to the total amount won. Each multiplier can come with a 2x, 3x, 5x, or 10x increase. If two or more multipliers are present on the board during the same spin, their multipliers combine.
You need three or more Dancing Wilds on the playing field to win six free spins. The Wilds that activate the bonus stay in position and remain there until the free spins end. Clearing the hotspot awards two Dancing Wilds and expands the reels by one row during free spins. The maximum possible number of rows is twelve, up from the standard eight. The bonus ends when the counter reaches zero.
