Microgaming Finally Releases the Long-Awaited Slot Village People® Macho Moves At this year’s ICE 2019, Microgaming has announced the release of six new titles. Most of those were debuted to the iGaming industry, and finally, we get to try the long-awaited branded slot Village People® Macho Moves. Village People® Macho Moves Online Slot Developed by Fortune Factory Studios exclusively for Microgaming, the 6-reel 15 payline Village People® Macho Moves is here to bring the beat back on the reels. Inspired by the 70s iconic disco group, and its everlasting songs, the slot will take you to the dance floor where you will be accompanied by the flamboyant characters who will show you their most incredible moves in the form of bonus features. The slot may easily be one of the best recent releases by the leading software developer because not only is it feature a theme based on the epic band, but all of its features and characters are fitted to perfection to that theme. As you step foot on the dance floor, you see the disco ball and you hear the grooviest vibes taking over the reels. On them, you see vintage glasses, retro platform shoes, old cassettes, classic vinyl and a golden microphone as the highest-paying symbols, in addition to the playing card suits as the lowest-paying symbols. The disco mirror ball is the Wild in the slot, which further on transforms into a Wild Token with the band’s initials on it, and plays one of the most important roles in the slot. The greatest additions are the popular characters, the Sailor, the Construction Worker, the Cowboy, the Biker, the Native and the Cop. They hit the dance floor, each one of them doing their signature Macho Move. In the backdrop, you can hear the classic hits The Navy, Macho Man, Go West, Can’t Stop the Music, and Y.M.C.A, playing from the VP Jukebox. Even though portrayed with cartoony graphics, you will clearly see the characters moving their hips, giving you the best special features possible. The Gameplay During the base game, you will benefit from the Expanding VP Wild which can create fully Wild Reels and reward you with a VP Wild Token, which is added to the meter above the reel it lands.
