A Night Out is a fun and popular video slot from Playtech, with 20 paylines and three special symbols in form of a scatter symbol, a wild, and a Bonus symbol featuring a bartender. As you can imagine this slot is all about going out and having a good time, drinking cocktails, dancing and enjoying oneself. A Night Out also offers a lotto-type bonus game called Dollar Ball, where you get to pick five numbers out of 49, then another five numbers are picked randomly by the game and all matches lead to wins. If all five numbers should match, well, then you’ve got your hands on one of the tempting jackpots. Play this game for free or with real money at casinos such as Betfair and Ladbrokes, offering several popular slots from Playtech.
Theme, characters and environment
We all like to go out once in a while and let loose, and the characters in this game is no exception. With a mixture of cocktails, pretty ladies having fun and wild pints of beer, this is a video slot that takes you downtown without you having to leave the comfort of your own comfy sofa. They have skipped the soundtrack, so there is no funky tune playing to amp up the vibe, but the sound effects are on point, retro-style. If you should get Bonus symbols lined up on reels 1 and 5, you will activate a bonus round, with more drinks, more ladies and saucy multipliers.
Theme and characters
Amongst the symbols you will find lots of yummy and fruity cocktails, with pineapples, kiwis and strawberries. The first group of symbols may not always give big payouts, but since they are quite common it is easier to get long combinations with them. The second half of the reels represents young beautiful women having fun, with a Brunette, a Red-Haired and a Blonde. These women are more valuable, but also quite rare, making it more difficult to get five-of-a-kind combinations, but it is still possible.
Environment and atmosphere
Environment and atmosphere is, despite the theme of the slot, pretty simple and low key. But it is a very bright and colourful slot game, and the symbols display a nice, minimalistic design that might put you a bit in a party mood, as they are very pleasant to look at. Press ‘Spin’ and see how fast the reels spin in this game, coupled up with real retro sound effects to speed up the gaming experience.
Symbols and soundtrack
With symbols so sweet that you can taste the sugar in the cocktails, we can spin away and enjoy the party vibe in this game. The women in the game seem to enjoy it too, as they have that ready-to-party look on their face, alluring and gorgeous. Amongst the special symbols we have the foaming beer pint as a wild, the dancing lady scatter and a bonus barman who is shaking up a cocktail with a huge smile on his face.
- Wild symbol– Beer Pint – This symbol is play on all reels, and as you know, they will substitute for any other symbol, except for the special symbols, to complete winning combinations
- Scatter symbol – Dancing woman – With the grace of a dancing woman this symbol just need to land on your reels to generate a prize (minimum of three)
- Bonus symbol – Cocktail Barman – This is the guy who will active the free spins bonus game, when he appears on reels one and five simultaneously
Keep on spinning until you hit the bonus feature, with the Free Spins Bonus feature or the Lock It feature. There lots of wilds and multipliers involved in these features, so read on to get to know them in more detail.
Free Spins Bonus feature
Players in the Free Spins Bonus feature are awarded six free spins. If three or more bonus symbols show up on your reels during this feature you get an additional amount of six free spins and 5x your stake. In each free spin, the wins are subject to a multiplier based on the number of wilds appearing on the screen. If you have 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 wilds, you will get a multiplier of 3x, 4x, 5x, 6x, 7x or 8x respectively.
Lock It feature
Moving on to the Lock It feature, this is where players are given one spin on a separate reel set where a number of positions on each reel are replaced with the new Heart or Gold Heart symbols. If you have been playing with a high bet, it is more likely that you will get Gold Hearts. Considering the theme, this might be that time of the night when two hearts potentially open up for each other.
The Grand, the Major, the Minor or the Mini Bonus will appear on each Gold Heart on the middle reel (reel 3). Only Minor Bonus or Mini Bonus appears on each Gold Heart on reels 1, 2, 4 and 5. Players that are lucky enough to get a combination of 3, 4 or 5 feature symbols on the same row retriggers the Lock It feature, this time with 3, 4 or 5 heart spins. If the Grand, Major, Minor or Mini Bonus appear on that triggering row… the player wins the jackpot prize!
Describing the Lock It feature may come across as complicated, but when you play it all unfolds very naturally and easily. Just like love does when it feels right. The Free Spins Bonus feature has the potential to create some very nice prizes because of the 8x multiplier. If you play the Lock It feature you are looking the possibility of getting cash prizes of up to 100 times your stake for each heart, plus as many as four fixed jackpots.
The Free Spins bonus game is triggered when you get a cocktail shaking barman bonus symbols on reels one and five simultaneously. In this case, you move on to a bonus game where you can choose between 2 and 20 free spins and a multiplier of between 2 to 10. You can’t pick 20 free spins with a 10x multiplier, so it’s up to you to decide what matters the most to you – the spins or the multipliers. Players that get 2 bonus symbols on reels one and five during the free spins bonus game, are also awarded a random combination of spins and multipliers, so this can end up a real free spins party.
