A neon fest is waiting for you in Pragmatic Play’s Dance Party. This 5-reel, 3-row slot with 243 ways to win will deliver some dramatic lighting and funky beats. The 243 ways to win mean that this slot doesn’t use paylines. Instead, a winning combination can be created when tiles fall adjacent to each other from left to right.

The vibrancy of the slot is perfectly complemented by the fresh house music in the background. The FX then continue adding other sound dimensions to this slot, sometimes even giving it a bit of retro feel.

Visually it looks fresh and it does have an interesting bonus feature mechanism. However, even though it does have a massive 36,450x potential max win, I can’t really say it made my heart skip any beats.


The symbols will transport you to a neon festival. Four high-paying symbols have a more ornate design yet somehow still keeping the whole vile minimalist. Then, the other four low-paying symbols take the shape of card suits lit up in neon.

The symbols, from highest to the lowest consist of:

  • The scatter tile is a diamond and appears on all reels and with 5 or more scatters anywhere on the grid you will trigger the progressive, multiplier, free spins round.
  • The Wild tile is the Dance Party Vinyl. It appears on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5, and substitutes for all symbols except the scatter.
  • The DJ yields 7.5x with 5-of-a-kind adjacent tiles.
  • The 777 yields 6x with 5-of-a-kind adjacent tiles.
  • The 2 Bar symbol yields 5 with 5-of-a-kind adjacent tiles.
  • The 1 Bar symbol yields 4 with 5-of-a-kind adjacent tiles.
  • The Ace and King yield 2.5x with 5-of-a-kind adjacent tiles.
  • The Queen and Jack yield 2x with 5-of-a-kind adjacent tiles.


  • Free spins round

Get 5 or more Diamond Scatters on the reels and you will trigger the Progressive Multiplier Free Spins round. The number of Diamond Scatters you land will influence what kind of multiplier will be applied to the spins. Five diamonds will give you a 1x multiplier, 6 diamonds will yield a 2x multiplier and 7 diamonds will yield a 3x multiplier. A total of 15 free spins are awarded.

Now, this is when it gets interesting. After every spin, the multiplier will increase by 1x, 2x, or 3x. There is a maximum of 30x win multiplier here. The win amount of each free spin is multiplied by the active multiplier.

If you get another 5 diamonds during the free spins you will add an extra 15 free spins up to a total of 60 spins.

There is also a consolation prize active. If for some reason the win from free spins is less than 10x the bet amount, the player is automatically awarded 10x the bet as a win.


Although the 243 ways to win can deliver some nice wins I felt myself feeling pretty underwhelmed overall. There is little happening in terms of gameplay and this lack of excitement that felt somewhat didn’t justify the high volatility of the game.

I managed to enter the bonus round a few times and the yield from these was low considering the amount of money and time I spent to get to it. The wins from the free spins always hovered around the 12x. During the base game, I had way better wins of over 50x in fact.

Now I can see where the potential to win big is. If you get the fabled 7 diamonds the multipliers during the free spins will go up to x30 and even a simple 3-of-a-kind can result in a jaw-dropping win. But the game feels so anticlimactic that I just couldn’t get me to get excited about the only feature it has, no matter how good it looks on paper.
