Funky Time slot REVIEW
Funky Time Game ReviewFans of Crazy Time will probably be all over this new Evolution Gaming release, but you need to be a disco fan to truly enjoy what’s on offer in Funky Time. The Live Hosts have never been more engaged and lively, and they get groovy with it when Mr Funky shows off his moves on the multiplier dance floor. The Live Host is the DJ that directs the virtual John Travolta-inspired character, and this is only one of multiple bonuses you get in this game.
It all starts with a simple spin on the Digiwheel, which comes with plenty of betting options, and you can land regular prizes as well as 1 of the 4 bonuses. The Bar Bonus features a robot bartender, and you get to pick a drink multiplier. There is also a highly engaging multiplier ladder ball drawing game where you choose your team up front. The big highlight is the Disco dance floor bonus and the VIP version of it though, and you can win up to 10,000x your stake.

Funky Time Live - Bar Bonus
The Bar Bonus takes you into a bar with a robot bartender, and it’s one of the more frequent bonus rounds you will get in this game. You get to choose between 3 drink options, and the drink you pick will reveal the multiplier that will boost your winnings.
The Stayin’ Alive Bonus comes with a ball drawing machine, and it contains 90 colored balls. You start at the bottom of a 20-level multiplier ladder, and the bottom value is 5x. The top value is 10,000x your stake, and you have 4 lives in this game. You will pick a team color up front, of green, pink, or orange, and everything is determined by the balls being drawn.
The black Stop Ball means that all players lose a life, and this also means you remain at the current multiplier level. The green, pink, or orange 1-Step Ball means you climb one step up the multiplier ladder if the ball’s color matches your initial choice.
The green, pink, or orange 2-Step Ball does the same, but it takes you 2 steps up the ladder instead of one. You win whatever prize you have achvied when all lives are lost. Any multiplier from the initial wheel spin will boost all ladder multipliers before the feature starts.
Both the Disco and the VIP Disco Bonuses feature Mr Funky getting groovy with it on the dance floor. It plays out on a colorful 37-square virtual dance floor, while the VIP version comes with a 63-square dance floor.
The Live Host in the DJ booth spins an 8-segment Mini Wheel, and it will display 1 of 4 directions. Mr Funky starts out on the middle of the floor, and he moves in the direction displayed on the Mini Wheel.
As Mr Funky moves and grooves his way around on the dance floor, he will pick up 2 types of multipliers from the squares:
Regular Multipliers - are added to your total win multiplier.
Floor Multipliers - double the values of 5 random regular multipliers on the floor.
The Disco bonus round ends whenever Mr Funky dances himself off the dance floor, and remember that he takes directions from the Live Host DJ booth. Any multiplier from the initial wheel spin will boost regular multipliers on the dance floor before the feature starts.
You have an 18.75 % chance of triggering any of the bonus rounds on any given wheel spin, and below is an overview of your winning chances and chances of triggering the different bonus features:
Number 1 bets come with a 43.75 % winning chance.
Any Letter bets come with a 37.50 % winning chance.
The Bar Bonus comes with a 9.38 % chance of being triggered.
The Disco Bonus comes with a 4.68 % chance of being triggered.

The VIP Disco Bonus comes with a 1.56 % chance of being triggered.
Funky Time Live - Disco Bonus
We like how Evolution keeps pushing the limits of what a Live Casino Game can be, and Funky Time is a dream come true for any fan of John Travolta’s dance moves in the legendary disco movie Saturday Night Fever from 1977. The Live Hosts have to bring their A-game to live up to the premise of this game, and they are more than enthusiastic enough from what we’ve seen. It’s hard to not have a good time with Funky Time, and it’s the perfect game to play while getting ready for a night out.
You will definitely get in the mood to hit the dance floor after a few sessions on the virtual disco floor, and it’s good fun to see Mr Funky groove his way around to pick up multipliers. The Stayin’ Alive bonus is thrilling as well, and we like how players are grouped into different teams. This adds to the social aspect of this live game, and we cannot imagine how Funky Time not being yet another massive success for Evolution. It’s a great game across the board, and we will definitely return to get groovy with it plenty of times in the future.
