A Night Out Slots

Published: 11/07/2012

Software developer Playtech introduced its nightclub-themed A Night Out slot in 2006, along with an Egyptian-motif game called Desert Treasure and the romance-inclined Dr. Lovemore. It was fairly clear from the start that two of the three were intended to appeal to an audience of dating age, and perhaps not surprising they have both survived throughout the ensuing years as perennial favourites.

As a five-reel, 20-payline game, the A Night Out slot has eight standard payline symbols and three bonus symbols. The lowest levels of winning combinations are awarded for three or more matched cocktails made with Kiwi Fruit, Pears, Oranges or Strawberries. Two or more tropical Pineapple cocktails will win a payout, too.

For greater rewards, two or more lovely young ladies must be lined up on an active payline and there are three of them to watch for—the Brunette dressed in yellow, the Redhead in red, and the Blonde in her lacy white and brown outfit. The Foaming Beer Mug is the wild symbol for this game, substituting for all symbols but the Bartender Bonus on reels one and five or the Dance Floor scatter symbols.

The credit denomination for A Night Out slots can be varied from €0.01 to €5, with the highest wager being 10 credits per payline or 200 total credits per spin. To change the credit value from the default €0.25, click on the adjacent +/- signs. Click on “Spin” to play. Winnings are shown in the “Win” display under the fifth reel, and the current Balance appears in the screen’s lower left corner.

The highest line payout on A Night Out slots is 10,000 times the bet for matching all five Foaming Beer Mug symbols on an active line. Other line payout multipliers range from 5X to 1,000X as shown in the pay table. Scatter bonuses of 5X, 10X or 50X are paid against the total bet when 3, 4 or 5 Dance Floor symbols appear.

The appearance of the Bartender on both reels one and five initiates a special Bonus Round. From 3 to 20 free spins are awarded depending upon which of six ladies at the bar is chosen. There is also a multiplier for each free spin of between 2X and 10X, revealed when selecting one of six drinks for the lady of choice. During the free spins, the bartender is inactive, so the Bonus Round cannot be retriggered.

Playtech’s A Night Out slot is tied into the progressive Dollar Ball Jackpot. This lotto type of side game can be accessed by using a toggle in the upper right corner of the screen. The object of Dollar Ball is to choose five numbers from 1 to 49 and launch the main game, where five numbers will be drawn at random.

Getting 1, 2 or 3 numbers correct pays 1X, 2X or 25X, based on the total amount bet. Catching four numbers yields a payout of 1% of the progressive jackpot, while getting all five numbers pays the grand prize.

Players may select their own five Dollar Ball numbers or click on Random Pick to have the numbers chosen randomly by the computer. As long as Dollar Ball is activated, an additional Jackpot wager will be made automatically each time the player bets in the main slot game. The Dollar Ball side bet can be turned off at will by clicking on Disable.

Whenever numbers match the player’s picks, the circles containing those numbers turn green and the win amount is displayed. All Dollar Ball wins are deposited directly into the current Balance along with any winnings from the main game.

The Autoplay mechanism on A Night Out slots is a bit tricky to find and use. It does not readily appear on the main screen. Instead, it must be accessed by using a pull-down tools menu at the top right of the screen. This will enable the Autoplay controls to be used in the “Spin” area of the slot screen. Left/right arrows allow the number of free spins to be selected up to 99.
