The B-52s Slot Machine

An increasing number of land-based casinos in North America are turning into party central, thanks to the arrival of The B-52s video slot. The fun-loving new wave band has been rocking sold-out arenas around the world with party rock hits like ‘Love Shack’ and ‘Rock Lobster’ for more than 40 years now, having been formed in 1976. Renowned for their whimsical lyrics and energetic performances, The B-52s have finally been immortalized on the reels of a slot machine courtesy of Aristocrat, the world’s second largest manufacturer of slots.

Boasting bright and bold visuals, pitch-perfect surround sound speakers, short clips from official music videos, and fantastic bonus features, The B-52s slot machine is housed in Aristocrat’s imposing Arc Double cabinet. This eye-catching cabinet has a high-resolution dual-screen setup. The top screen displays all four band members – Fred Schneider, Kate Pierson, Carly Wilson and Keith Strickland – along with the band’s bold logo and counters displaying two relatively small progressive jackpots.

Jackpots can be scooped during the sensational Roam Around the World bonus. Speaking of bonuses, you could also benefit from a range of random features whenever the Rock Lobster makes an appearance. An impressive 8x5 game matrix is displayed on the lower screen, where you’ll be hoping to see band members dance onto the reels as stacked symbols for incredible wins.

Cult Hits Get the Party Started

A few of the band’s greatest hits are belted out from surround sound speakers as you spin the funky reels of The B-52s slot machine. Not only do you get to hear the quirky songs that have brought The B-52s so much success over the years, but you will also get to watch clips from some of their most memorable fun-filled music videos.

With The B-52s being one of the newest casino slot machines to hit the floors of land-based casinos in Las Vegas, it should come as no surprise to hear that Aristocrat has experimented with the structure of the game. Instead of opting for a basic five-reel, 20-payline structure, the creative geniuses at Aristocrat have thought outside of the box. The B-52s is a five-reeled slot with an attractive eight-high reel set and 100 paylines. Make no mistake about it, this is one spectacular-looking slot!

Stunning Stacked Symbols of Each Band Member

Each of the four band members can rock the reels by turning up as a stacked symbol, covering up to three symbol positions. Even if this is the first time you’ve come across The B-52s, Aristocrat has made it easy for you to get acquainted with each band member by boldly printing their name at the bottom of their respective symbols. The ladies in the band are Kate and Cindy, who specialize in the organ and percussion instruments respectively. They are accompanied by the musical cowbells-playing Fred and guitarist Keith.

Lower-value symbols on the pay table of The B-52s slot machine include lobsters, drums, tambourines, electric keyboards, and musical cowbells. In terms of special symbols, you’ll be hoping to see the bold logo of The B-52s printed on a vinyl record appear. It’s the game’s wild symbol, which can substitute for all standard symbols.

Dance Along With the Rock Lobster

The B-52s slot machine is bubbling with brilliant random bonus features, which are delivered by the bright-red Rock Lobster. He makes his presence known by covering the reels in bubbles, dancing onto the top screen, and joyfully singing “lots of bubbles”. We certainly prefer his vocals to the absurd fish impressions made by Cindy and Kate on ’Rock Lobster’, the first single released by The B-52s. But we’re sure the big question on your lips is: what special surprises does he have in store?

Appearing out of nowhere, the Rock Lobster can award one of three bonuses. He loves to make it rain with random wilds, which results in regular symbols being replaced by a wild. When he is in an even more generous mood, you could see multiple reels become wild. Neither of these bonuses can guarantee a win, but you’ll be putting your dancing shoes on for a celebratory dance whenever random wilds and wild reels help you secure high-paying five-of-a-kind wins. The third bonus sees the Rock Lobster boost your chances of activating the game’s main bonus by adding an additional scatter symbol to the reels.

Unlock Bonus Wheels for Big Money Prizes

Passionate fans of The B-52s will notice that the hit single ‘Roam’ served as inspiration for the naming of the game’s main bonus feature, Roam Around the World. Access to this bonus is granted whenever you land a trio of scatter symbols. We particularly love how the remaining reels spin in a slow and dramatic fashion whenever you have already landed two of the three required bonus symbols. Landing the third – whether it’s by luck or thanks to the generosity of the Rock Lobster –transports you to a new screen for a shot at scooping the game’s biggest prizes.

You will then see four different-colored bonus wheels – pink, green, blue and red – each of which has been designed in the style of a vinyl record to tie in nicely with the theme. The feature begins with you receiving three spins on the pink wheel. Half of the twelve segments on the pink wheel offer relatively small multiplier wins, while the other half will unlock the green wheel. Interestingly, there are no unlock segments on the green, blue or red wheels. Instead, they are filled with progressively larger cash prizes.

Unlocking all four wheels will be your goal from the very first spin. This will result in a maximum of six rounds of wheel-spinning fun. Should you manage to unlock the red wheel at the top, your eyes will be firmly fixed on hitting one of the two progressive jackpots. These jackpots have aptly been named after two of the band’s biggest hits. The Legal Tender jackpot is always worth the least, whereas the Good Stuff jackpot pays out the highest sum.

Neither of these progressive jackpots offer a life-changing amount of real cash, but their inclusion adds another interesting element to The B-52s slot machine.

Bringing Everyone to Their Feet

The B-52s slot machine is quite literally bringing players to their feet. And that’s not just because it puts you in a dancing mood while spinning its reels, but because you’ll need to put your dancing shoes on and venture out to a land-based casino to give it a try.

It’s certainly worth the walk, though. You won’t be complaining when the Rock Lobster turns up for a sing-along to grant random wilds, wild reels, or to slap another scatter symbol on the reels. And it’s easy to see why Aristocrat has referred to the Roam Around the World bonus as a “wheel-lovers dream”. If you aren’t already a big fan of The B-52s, you will be once you spin these colorful reels.
