It’s back to school at Rydell High as Playtech announces the latest addition to its stable of online slots titles. Now you can join Danny, Sandy, Rizzo and Kenickie as they learn about love, loss and friendship, all set against a great backing track featuring musical excerpts from the iconic 1978 film.
Tell me more! Tell me more!
John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John took the leading roles in the movie Grease, which caused a storm when it first hit cinema screens, as people embraced the songs, dance routines and lives of the students at Rydell High School. And now the iconic film has been brought back into the spotlight again, 40 years after its original release, as a new addition to the Playtech Slots catalogue.
Featuring five reels, each with three rows of symbols, and 20 paylines, Playtech have ensured that the game is accessible to players everywhere, whether they enjoy playing online casino games on their desktops, laptops, tablets or mobiles. And with the betting range going from a modest 20 pence up to a maximum of £20, high rollers and more cautious players can all enjoy this feature-rich game Alternatively, play for free and enjoy the gameplay with none of the associated wins or losses - the choice is yours.
Step back in time
Just like the original film, the online slots version of Grease is set in the 1950s with the action taking place in Frosty’s Diner, with its chrome stools, black and white flooring and juke box in the corner. Playing card symbols are here reduced to just the court cards, all of which are depicted against vinyl records, and you’ll also find milkshakes, classic cars and characters from the film appearing too.
Danny and Sandy each appear on their own and as joint symbols, all of which can be stacked, giving you extra chances to score a winning payline. Look out too for the heart symbols, which is the game’s Wild and can substitute for any other symbol across the reels apart from the Scatter.
As you’d expect from Playtech Slots, Grease is packed with extra features that make the game more exciting to play. The Sweetheart Wilds feature is triggered randomly, but when it arrives it brings you up to eight additional wilds.
The Rockin’ and Rollin’ Respins bonus feature is triggered when the first reel is filled with Sandy or Danny symbols. You’ll be awarded three respins, in which either the Danny or Sandy symbols are sticky depending on which symbol triggered the feature, which can be retriggered during gameplay, leading to some impressive wins.
Exciting bonus rounds
Every self-respecting online slots game needs to have a Scatter and in Grease it’s represented by the game’s logo. Scatters appear on the first, third and fifth reel and when all three of them appear during a spin the Jukebox Bonus round is triggered, during which you’ll have the choice of one of three bonus features.
The Better Shape Up bonus awards you with 12 free spins, during which all of the low-value symbols are removed from the reels. Danny and Sandy symbols are replaced by the combined symbol, giving you the opportunity to achieve some great financial rewards.
The Summer Nights bonus gives you 4 free spins, but you’re simultaneously awarded up to 8 additional Wilds, greatly increasing your chances of achieving a winning line.
The Rydell High bonus takes the form of a ‘pick me’ round. You’ll be shown the Rydell High School Yearbook and invited to select pictures, which award you with cash bonuses as well as the opportunity to view a clip from the original film. With up to five levels to the game, the cash prizes increase the further up the levels you go, potentially awarding you up to 10 times your original wager for each pick.
And just when you think you’ve uncovered all of the game’s secrets, you’ll discover that there are two separate progressive jackpots included in the game. Open boxes and match the symbols to win either Sandy’s or Danny’s jackpot and reap big money rewards as a result.
Grease fans are guaranteed to love this latest addition to the Playtech slots catalogue, but if musicals aren’t your thing, maybe you’d prefer the darker action to be found in The Dark Knight Superhero Slot. Based on the original film, The Dark Knight Superhero Slot features 50 paylines, along with free spins and respins as well as the opportunity to win cash prizes of up to 1500x your stake, making this a popular title with high rollers.
Once again, Playtech prove that they understand what online slots fans are looking for in their gaming experience, providing them with ample opportunities to win big, whilst enjoying fun and entertaining online slots action.
