Feel the Beat Lets You Jam Out in a Cyberpunk Utopia

I’m not sure I like dance music. Sure, when I’ve had one too many Long Island iced teas and I’m in the middle of a sweaty mass, it’s great. But would I ever just sit with a cup of coffee and listen to that repetitive noise drilling into my brain? Probably not. I am, as a result, the perfect person to review a dance-music-themed slot.

Feel the Beat slot from Hacksaw is a five-reel slot that offers an interesting track-select feature that allows you to choose between knockoff versions of three classic dance tunes.

When two speaker symbols appear on the reels, all positions between the two speakers that land on any of the slot’s 27 paylines will be transformed into speaker symbols. All the speaker symbols on the reels will then flip to reveal the same paying symbol.

The X symbol is an interesting feature that I don’t think I’ve ever seen before. If one of these symbols appears on the reels at the same time as a winning combination is completed, a random global multiplier with a value of between 2x and 200x will be applied to your winning amount.

The slot’s standard round of free spins is triggered with three FS symbols. During free spins, a guaranteed minimum of two speakers will appear on every spin. Additionally, unlike during the base game, where speaker symbols can only reveal paying symbols, during a round of free spins, the speaker symbols can also reveal wild symbols. Feel the Beat slot free spins are re-triggerable, and if two or three FS symbols appear during your round, you’ll receive an additional two and four free spins, respectively.

In addition to the slot’s standard round of free spins, it also offers the Get Your Booty on the Floor bonus round that is triggered with four FS symbols. This round of free spins will be almost identical to the standard round, apart from the global multiplier continuing to grow throughout instead of resetting after each activation.

If you’re not keen on waiting around on the dance floor to unlock a bonus feature the old-fashioned way, you can select to utilize the buy bonus feature. The Feel the Beat slot buy bonus feature offers a wide range of options to choose from.

Is Feel the Beat slot going platinum?

Feel the Beat slot offers a maximum multiplier of 10,000x, allowing you to play for up to $250,000 in winnings when you’re betting at the $25 a spin top end. Betting does, however, start at just $0.10 a spin, and at that rate, you’ll still have a shot at winning up to $1,000, which isn’t a bad return. The slot offers medium to high volatility and an RTP rating of 96.2%.

Hacksaw released my favorite music-themed slot of all time last year. It’s called Vending Machine and perfectly aligns with my music taste with some chill lofi hip hop. I’ll be honest: I’m not as big a fan of dance music, so I didn’t connect as well to Feel the Beat slot. I’m also not sure if the graphics are quite as great as those in Vending Machine. That being said, there is still a lot to love about Feel the Beat. The graphics are still good, and they’re really elevated with some fun animation. The bonus features are also numerous, well-themed, and engaging. I give this one an eight out of ten.
