Electric Avenue

Electric Avenue is a song by the British pop/reggae artist Eddie Grant that was a massive hit in the 80s. It was named after a street in Brixton, south London, one of the iconic neighbourhoods in the history of Black British culture.

This Electric Avenue slot game doesn’t appear to have any relationship to that song.

It does – according to some reviews we’ve seen – bear a resemblance to a game called Danger High Voltage which is themed on a song that was a big hit in the 90s, and on its theme, which was electricity.

So bear that in mind.

The top prize in this game is 6,800-times your total stake, and the main bonus feature is a free spins round with a choice of modes – more spins against multipliers or wilds on the reels.

Although the game references the Eddie Grant song, it is more reminiscent of 80s synth-pop, with a soundtrack that sounds like Electric Dreams (see where we’re going here), and a very 80s feel. The symbols are the likes of 80s baseball boots, Rubik’s cubes, horrible sunglasses, and soda cans.

Is there anything else I should know about Electric Avenue slot?

The DeLorean car, a symbol of 80s excess that was a disaster for Belfast (it’s a good story), is the scatter that triggers the free spins round.

The Game

The game controls are very simple to understand. At the top of a strip is a cog symbol to open the settings, then a button grid to open up further menus. The spin button sits in the middle, under this is the auto spin function, which you can limit by spin number only. At the bottom is a single bet control.

The pay table reveals:

Cards paying 0.75-times stake to 1-times stake for a full set. Soda cans paying 1.25-times stake for a full house. Sunglasses that pay the same. A Rubik’s cube paying 2-times stake. A pair of basketball boots paying 2-times stake for a full house. A Polaroid camera that pays 5-times stake. The scatter, the DeLorean, also pays 20-times stake for a set of six. The boom box pays 25-times stake for a set of six.

Wilds are character symbols, all decked in full-on 80s gear and doing full-on 80s things. They appear on their own reels and they are stacked, and sometimes have multiplier values, corresponding to the reel number.

Scatters trigger the free spins round.

There are two free spins rounds.

Electric spins give you 7 spins with a power wild that stays in play once it appears and grants 3 extra spins if it fills a reel.

Neon spins give you 10 spins with multipliers on the interior reels. This feature retriggers.

The Verdict

Is this game derivative? We’ll let you decide that for yourselves when you play it. However, it was derived it is a very high-quality game with fantastic graphics. Some games have a theme and just drape a few images on a game, but this theme is deep – and for an 80s kid deeply disturbing – and really well developed.

And the game is fantastic to play, with loads of features that keep coming through the base game and also into the free spins round. The choice of free spins rounds is another interesting option.

This is a high volatility game and has a great top prize. The RTP and the hit rate are decent though, so there’s nothing to scare players away from this excellent title.
