Burlesque by Dita is the latest branded slot to be released by Microgaming, and we have to say that it's a particularly impressive one. The game was designed by Eurostar Studios working in collaboration with Aurum Signature Studios, and it focuses on the world-famous talents of burlesque icon Dita von Teese.
For those of you who aren't familiar with burlesque, it's an artistic form of entertainment that often involves elements of striptease and playful eroticism. Dita von Teese is perhaps the biggest name on the modern burlesque scene, as indicated by the fact that she's often referred to as the Queen of Burlesque.
Burlesque by Dita: Format and Gameplay
This is a five-reel slot with three rows. When you launch the game you'll see a splash screen telling you that you can win up to 12,000 times your bet. Dita is there to greet you in top-hat, tails, stockings, and suspenders. She stands next to a Wild Pleasure feature banner that promises to turn five reels wild, and that's just one reason why this burlesque superstar goes by the name von Teese.
You'll have 243 ways to win with every spin in this game. Symbols on the reels include the playing card suits of hearts, spades, clubs, diamonds, a face powder compact, a lipstick, a pair of leopardskin heels, a bottle of bubbly, and four portraits of Dita herself. A feather dance symbol serves as a paying scatter and a martini glass symbol is a paying wild. It is worth noting that the wild symbol will double any win that it forms a part of.
The visuals in Burlesque by Dita are very nicely done, with the star of the show being presented in a classic pin-up style that is suitably sexy but always tasteful and elegant. A sassy burlesque soundtrack accompanies you as you play, and Dita will comment on proceedings - such as notable wins - in her inimitably dulcet tones. In many respects, it's like having a front-row seat!
Wild Pleasure Feature
The Wild Pleasure feature that is highlighted on the opening splash screen can be triggered at any time when you are playing the main game. When it does get randomly triggered, it will turn up to five reels wild. Get all five of the reels wild, and you could land the top payout of 12,000 times your bet without even trying, so triggering this feature is always an exciting event.
Free Spins Selection Feature
Dita von Teese is world-famous for her glamorous set pieces, and four of them are paid tribute to in the Free Spins Selection feature, which is triggered by getting three, four, or five scatter symbols on the reels at the same time, and will give you the chance to select one of four Free Spins modes, as follows:
Blue Dita will give you 10 free spins. All of the wins achieved from these will be enhanced by a 5x multiplier, and you can retrigger the feature by getting another set of three or more scatters.
Yellow Dita will give you 15 free spins. This is the Queen of Burlesque feature, and feathers can appear on the reels at random times. Any symbol that a feather lands on will be transformed into a 2x or 3x multiplier. Wins can be multiplied by as much as 6x.
Green Dita will give you 20 free spins. You'll benefit from the Rolling Reels mechanic in this mode that can give you multiple wins in a row. A multiplier will grow with consecutive wins, and the multiplier can increase to a maximum of 5x.
Purple Dita will give you 25 free spins. This is the Moulin Rich feature, and in this mode, there will be a Wild Party symbol on the third reel. When the Wild Party symbol lands on the screen, the Moulin Rich feature will randomly select other symbols to be transformed into additional wilds. As if all of that wasn't enough, land another 2, 3, 4, or 5 scatters, and you'll receive 1, 2, 3, or 4 additional free spins.
A Game of Glamour
'Dita Von Teese is an icon, and we were thrilled to get the opportunity to work with Aurum Signature Studios and Eurostar Studios on such a glamorous slot,' said Andrew Booth, who is Director of Games at Microgaming. 'With a glitzy soundtrack and entertaining gameplay, we can't wait to see players enjoy this opulent slot.'
The game developers were also delighted to have worked on this title. 'Burlesque by Dita is packed with spectacular features and glamorous visuals, providing non-stop action and excitement. You can choose from four free spin bonuses, each with its own fabulous feature set,' said Tara Townsend, who is CEO at Eurostar Studios. And Madelein Özok, who is Head of Aurum Signature Studios, said, 'This slot is full of rich features that give players a front-row seat to an unmissable showcase and wins of up to 12,000x their bet.'
