Take a seat in our time machine and get ready to travel a couple of decades back in time. We shall land in the middle of the 80s, where hot pink clothes were in fashion, yuppies and Wall Street millionaires were seen rushing down the streets, Madonna and The Pet Shop Boys were adored by youths, and everyone was wearing very strange clothes. The pokie Crazy 80s by Microgaming takes up the best and the worst from this nutty decade, and it is not the only pokie inspired by this time. Super 80s by Net Entertainment is another pokie whose theme is based on this particular decade.
Technically speaking, Crazy 80s is a pokie with five reels, three rows and a total of nine possible paylines which you can activate. As such, we can say that it is a fairly standard pokie from Microgaming. In addition to the number of lines you can adjust the bet level to five different levels. Thus, it is easy to customise the settings to suit your wallet.
The symbols used in the Crazy 80s are exactly those that one would expect to see in a pokie that is inspired by this particular period. You will see teens wearing clothes typical of those times, accessories and magazines, all in very bright colours. In addition to these you also have the 10, J, Q, K and A, the values of which correspond to the card values in poker. There are also a few special symbols that are worth keeping an eye on.
The Boom Box is the wild symbol, or the joker, in Crazy 80s. It thus acts as a replacement for most other symbols in the pokie. So, if you see a Boom Box on the wheels, it is very likely that you have a winning combination somewhere resulting in an increase in your account balance.
Apart from the wild symbol, the long-playing record with a pair of pink shoes on the cover is the scatter symbol. At least three of these on the wheels, regardless of the location, give you profit. Five records anywhere on your display will give you as much as 50 times your stake.
The girl with the permed hairstyle wearing a turquoise tank top is the most important symbol of the Crazy 80s. If five of her appear on an active payline, you will be awarded with 5, 000 credits. How much this is worth in money value we can’t really tell you exactly. This is because it varies depending on the bet settings that you’re playing with. However, one thing can be guaranteed, it will be an amount that will certainly make you smile from ear to ear.
Crazy 80s is a pretty nice and entertaining pokie that will surely appeal to all the 80s fanatics that maybe feel a little bit nostalgic of those times. It does not have an integrated bonus round, and the wild symbol is not a multiplier, but still it is good. It is ideal to spend some time having a pleasurable moment whilst dreaming of yourself living in this bygone era.
