Funk Master Review
Within the past couple of years, music slots have increased in popularity. Since Jammin' Jars, many developers have tried to replicate the magic with their own groovy slot paired with Cluster Pays.
Funk Master is NetEnt's answer to Jammin' Jars and is a grid slot that plays on 8x8. Players will be treated to Dancing Wilds, Dancing Wild Hotspot, Multipliers and Free Spins leading to wins of up to 3,337x your stake.
In terms of design, this slot contains a bright and vibrant colour palette. The slot is set in a nightclub with a hue of different colours ranging from blues to purples.
On the reels themselves, there are various disco balls on the reels sparkling and shining. Naturally, the wild is one that animates and shines on the reels.
As for the music, there is a funky beat in the distance that remains steady throughout until spins and then the music gets more intense to build up the excitement.
Thankfully, the gameplay of this slot lives up to the hype. The Cluster Pays mechanic leads to some satisfying gameplay that feels natural and delivers some entertaining moments.
Funk Master contains the spin button and bet level at the bottom of the screen. Non-UK players will find a bonus buy feature to the left of the reels.
One thing that is quite lacking in this slot is the win potential. Jammin' Jars features a high RTP and a respectable maximum win of 20,000x your stake - but that is not the case in Funk Master. The RTP is decent enough but only just at 96.04%.
This game also contains a high volatility level leading to larger wins but less frequently. However, it should be noted that the maximum win is only 3,337x your stake which is low for a high volatility slot.
As an obvious Jammin' Jars clone, we had high expectations of Funk Master which NetEnt somehow met. In terms of the gameplay, Funk Master is a marvel and features some engaging gameplay.
The design is also pretty decent as well but the slot begins to falter with the win potential. Perhaps, if the maximum win was 10,000x your stake or more, then Funk Master could be a masterpiece. Despite this, if you love grid slots with a funky beat, then look no further than this slot.
