That’s right, Microgaming has announced the latest video pokie game release named Karaoke Party, which should go live across their platform sometime in August. As the name says this is a music theme video pokie game, with a main focus on karaoke singing.
We’re not sure how much this theme will be appreciated among their loyal players, but we are impatient to see the full game live, with all the details.
The incredibly short promo video that was posted on the Microgaming channel shed absolutely no information about what Karaoke Party actually has to offer, so we had to scrape up whatever information we could from other sources.
We know that the visual and animation effects in Karaoke Party will be on a decent level, making it attractive to the eye. We also know that the designers decided to go with a very old and simple 9 pay line design, with 5 reels and 3 rows in total.
With a design like that it is very certain that the minimum bet per spin will be set at $0.09, while the maximum should be able to go up to a high $45 per spin. We also know that players can win a decent free spins bonus feature, which can produce a maximum payout of 3, 333 x total bet.
What We love
Many fresh gamblers will be probably set back by the simple 9 pay line design Karaoke Party has, as they are used to more advanced pokie games. For us old timers and veterans in the online gambling world, this simple design is something we are used to and is one of our personal favorites.
The 9 liner Microgaming pokies like Break da Bank Again, Thunderstruck and Center Court used to take up most of our gambling sessions and have provided us with some incredible payouts.
The bonus feature in Karaoke Party may not look like much, but one re-trigger landing the maximum 30 free spins, combined with the x3 multiplier and the x2 multiplier by the Wild, is attractive enough in our book.
If the symbols payouts are high, Karaoke Party may very well become a high variance, big payout potential, personal favorite of ours.
What we Do not Like
We don’t have all the information we need to say anything about the negative details of Karaoke Party. From all we have seen so far Karaoke Party seems like a decent video pokie game, but the symbol payouts is the crucial piece of information that we are unfortunately missing at the moment.
The answer to this question lies in the personal taste every online gambler has. For us Karaoke Party seems like a decent pokie to play for real money, while others won’t even give it a chance because of the simple design and bonus features.
The final grade on Karaoke Party depends solely on the symbol payouts. The wild has a doubling payout function, which means that a wild win in the free spins bonus will be multiplied by 6.
This is reason enough to believe that the payout potential is there, but we will have to wait a while longer before we can see it in real play.
