Microgaming Releases New Village People: Macho Moves Pokie

Elouise Spencer - 11 July 2019

The Village People dominated the airwaves in the 1970s with a string of hit singles, many of which remain very popular today. Most of us have heard tracks like In the Navy and YMCA, and their opulent on-stage outfits have been delighting music fans for more than 30 years now. Named after their 2nd single, Village People: Macho Man is the brand new pokies release by Microgaming, based on the iconic band and tune. It’s a product of Fortune Factory Studios, who signed an exclusive deal with the world-renowned software provider.

Innovative Game Design

Village People: Macho Man is available for both mobile and online users, and is made up of 3 rows and 6 reels, each representing a member of the band. Base gameplay will require winning combinations of icons to land on the 15 integrated paylines.

The pokies’ betting range is big enough to accommodate a range of player preferences, with wagering starting at just €0.15. High rollers are also catered for thanks to stakes going all the way up to a hefty €25.  

Superb Special Features

The band featured a Biker, a Construction Worker, a Cop, a Cowboy, a GI, and an Indian Chief, and they’re all represented on the reels. You’ll see them situated up above each one, on a meter, which lights up. Getting the meter going requires VIP Wild symbols landing, and tokens being gained. Once you’ve managed to get hold of 5 of these tokens the meter will light up completely, triggering the game’s special features.

Each of the Village People: Macho Man reels offers something distinctive, starting with 5 Free Spins and random Multipliers of between 2X and 20X for the Construction Worker. The 2nd reel belongs to the Cowboy and will provide 5 complimentary rounds and between 2 and 12 Wilds for each. Next up is the Cop, who delivers 5 Free Spins and turns between 2 and 4 of the reels Wild for each of these. Then there’s the Indian Chief who’ll give you 5 games on the house along with 2 Wild reels tacked on to the 5th and 6th and then marching on to the 1st again after each spin.

The Biker gives players 5 Free Spins and replaces lower value Royal symbols with 1 of the higher icons for bigger wins. And finally, there’s the Sailor, who offers 5 Free Spins along with between 1 and 3 Wilds locking randomly into place for each.

Players are invited to don their platform shoes and have fun with the flamboyant cast in this official branded pokies release on desktop or mobile at all Microgaming powered casinos.
