If the lipstick, cocktails and glitter balls do not give away the theme of this older online slot – then the muscular bare-chested waiter holding a tray of shots certainly will. Ladies Nite is themed around a night out with the girls. There is lively disco music, and the background chatter of a bar to go with the brightly coloured symbols.
Game-play wise, the free spins bonus game is the highlight. Here you will get 15 spins, with 3x wins. When you add to this the double prizes which come with the wilds, you can reach 6x what is on the pay table during this bonus.
The graphics, game-play and setup all indicate an older slot. This game has 9 win-lines (adjustable), and you can bet from just 1c and up. Bet max will default to the maximum 5 coins per line at your current coin size. Auto-play is made available via the ‘expert’ control panel.
Wilds symbols are very important for this game. This is the bright pink mirror ball with the word ‘wild’ on it. If you get 5 of these on a win-line, 10,000 coins are coming your way. You will get 2000 coins for 4, 200 for 3 and 10 coins for just 2 from the left-hand side.
As the wild, this symbol also substitutes for the other symbols in winning combinations. Any wins which include at least one wild are doubled compared to the amounts listed on the pay table.
Regular wins are topped by a smiling lady dancing. This is worth 750 coins for 5 of a kind. Next comes a colourful cocktail, some ‘divine’ perfume, a handbag and then a red lipstick.
Lower paying symbols are the classic playing cards. Look out for the Ace, which has a cocktail (complete with mini umbrella) on it – and the King, which wears a tux and bow tie.
You can’t see the head of the scatter symbol. This is a muscular torso and arms, holding a tray of coloured shots. Scatters have two important roles in the Ladies Nite slot. First, there is a prize based on the total number in view. This prize is based on your total spin amount, rather than your coin size. If you get 5 of these waiters, you’ll win 500x your total bet. 4 are worth 20x, 3 gets you 5x and you get 2x your bet for just 2 anywhere in view.
More importantly, 3 or more of these scatters will see you enter the free spins bonus game. You will get 15 free spins, regardless of how many scatters triggered this. The reels will spin much faster during the free spins, and the disco music stops. Any wins that you hit will be tripled compared to the pay table. This means that wins involving wilds are now at 6x. You can retrigger for more spins during this bonus.
Ladies Nite will not win any awards for graphics these days, though it is bright and lively enough to make spinning the reels fun. The logo, which includes a disco glitterball, is underneath the reels – which take up most of your screen. Reels are backed with purple, and the symbols are a mix of bright colours.
Wilds stand out, these are hard to miss in bright pink. Even the handbag symbol has a certain sparkle to it. Sounds of the nightclub quickly fade into the background. There is a pulsing dance beat playing while you spin. When you win you get treated to guitar riffs, and occasional giggles from the girls. Like many older slots, there is a familiar beep and whirring sound when you spin the reels.
This is not the newest slot in the MicroGaming range by a long way, though it does have some positives. The overall liveliness of the game could well make other slots seem dull by comparison. In the base game wins will wilds will get doubled prizes. These are frequent enough to keep your bankroll topped up. It is the bonus game is where things get more interesting. 15 rapid-fire free spins all have 3x wins. When you add this to the doubled wins with wilds, the big-win potential becomes clear.
