This new game on Aristocrat’s flashy Verve cabinet is themed around the popular sequel film of the same name that follows the Kings of Tampa, a group of male strippers, to a stripping convention.
The male stripper theme is carried through a video slot that contains many strong features on its own, from a two-level mystery progressive jackpot to full-reel wild symbols to both free-spin and picking bonus events.
The base game is a five-reel, 40-line video slot in a four-by-five configuration (four rows of symbols per reel). The primary game contains a “Dynamic Symbols” feature. At the start of each base-game spin, each reel has symbol positions that are randomly replaced by Dancer symbols, increasing the chance for wins.
The progressives—a Major resetting at $500 and a Minor starting at $50—are randomly awarded on any bought game, at any bet level. Also randomly awarded is the “Are You Ready to Get Wild” feature, in which all Dancer symbols become wild.
Three or more scattered Showtime Bonus symbols trigger eight, 15 or 25 free spins, titled “It’s Not Bro time, It’s Showtime Free Spins.” During free spins, Dancer symbols are wild when covering all four rows of symbols, creating wild reels. Bonus symbols during the free spins retrigger the feature.
The main Magic Mike Bonus is a picking game. Players are initially awarded five picks from 15 face-down tiles. Each selection reveals credit awards ranging from 25 to 250 credits, a Dancer symbol that increases the overall bonus multiplier, individual pick multipliers or additional picks. Revealing all of the Dancer symbols awards all remaining unselected tiles for the game’s top award of 20,000 credits times the line bet.
