Playing this pokies machine is as easy as, well, spinning vinyl on a record player. This pokie machine is made even easier to play by the fact that it only offers some wagering options. Those options are 0.25, 0.50. 1.00 and 2.00.

Of course, players can up the ante by activating more paylines. There are up to nine playable lines in total and you can toggle these by clicking the numbers which run along the side of the game or by simply clicking the “Select Lines” button. The total bet that is placed as a stake on each spin is the number of lines multiplied by the coin size. So, you could bet as little as 0.25 for a low-value spin on only 1 pay line or you could bet up to 18.00 for a high-value spin with every possible pay line active.

Hopefully you have a sweet tooth because this game features some sugar-filled deserts as its least valuable icons. These symbols have 5-in-a-line payouts that multiply the coin size on that line up to 250x. The more valuable symbols in Vinyl Countdown are, in order of value: a pair of dancing shoes, a heart icon, a beautiful belle and the heartthrob 50s rocker who is sporting the trademark pompadour hair do. The most rewarding icon is the Vinyl symbol itself, which will multiply the coin size by 1,000 – now that is definitely worth a spin!

If you are one of those players who just likes to sit back and let the pokies do all the hard work, then you are in luck. That is because this game features an “Expert” mode in which players can set up a continuous autoplay round of up to 500 spins.

Unfortunately, this pokie machine doesn’t have any bonus features such as free spins or gamble games. That is quite an unusual thing for a video pokies machine of this calibre, but players will just have to make do without any of these side games to mix up the action.

Vinyl Countdown does include wild and scatter icons – both of which serve to keep the gameplay action as interesting as possible. For example, the scattering disco ball can appear on any of the game’s 5 reels but it doesn’t need to line up with other scatter symbols to pay out. You simply have to come across three or more anywhere on the game screen to win some money.

The wild card is depicted by a jukebox and it will fill in winning combinations for any symbols apart from the disco ball scatter card.

A historical pokies machine that is still relevant today

This pokie machine may not be top of the pokie when it comes to bonus features, but it definitely does deliver a very well designed game to the punters. What’s more, it offers something a little bit different to the many tried and tested pokies themes out there. So, if you do not want to games based on ancient history, why not check out this game which grooves to the beat of our very own living history?
