The Super 80s is a 5 reel, 40 payline online slots game from NetEnt that’s rich in nostalgia value either for those who remember the 1980s, or those who are enjoying the current retro fashions and want even more of an Eighties-riffic fix.
Look and Feel
The Super 80s online slot features a cool, dark color palette with neon flashes and pale blue stars on the background, set against a clean, simple interface, and accompanied by a funky 80s-style electronica soundtrack that will no doubt appeal strongly to fans of modern synth and vapourwave music.
Lower value symbols are alphanumeric and appear on brightly colored balls in a neon-effect font, while the higher value symbols are represented – in order of ascending value – by a pair of skateboards, a pair of bright pink stiletto heels, a video gaming joystick, a Walkman-style personal stereo, an early mobile phone (which looks positively prehistoric against modern smartphones!) and a bright red luxury car that any 1980s Porsche or Ferrari-owning yuppie would covet.
There is also a text-based “80s Wild” stacked wild symbol, and a scatter symbol featuring a cartoon 80s nightclub girl on a multi-colored background.
Bets are controlled through the “Bet Level,” “Bet Lines,” and “Coin Value” buttons, though you will need to click through the options to select the one you want as there are no arrow-based selectors.
The paylines are not fixed, so the absolute minimum bet for one line is 1p per spin, or 40p for all paylines. Bets are capped at a ceiling of £100 per spin with a maximum coin value of 0.50, making The Super 80s suitable for low to mid-high stakes players.
The Super 80s is fairly simple in terms of online slots gameplay, with the focus of the gaming experience being on the game’s design, artwork, and music, similar to the other two nostalgic NetEnt titles in this series, The Funky 70s and The Groovy 60s. That doesn’t mean, of course, that there aren’t some very appealing bonuses on offer.
The Super 80s offers the 80s Wild as both a random wild and stacked wild, which can create extra winning combos, while the disco diva scatter symbol – when occurring at least three times on the reels – will land a 2x multiplier on winning spins and earn an additional five free spins.
All in all, The Super 80s is a fun, engaging play experience that will appeal to a range of players, whether you remember the decade fondly, couldn’t wait for it to end, or weren’t even born when it did!
