Definitely one of the stranger slots out there, Danger High Voltage is apparently, weirdly, based off of Electric Six’s 2003 hit of the same name. Confused? Don’t be: this is a 6-reel slot with a whopping 4096 ways to win.

Fans of the original song might recall these symbols as a cheeky nod to some of the lyrics!

Jackpots

While there’s no progressive jackpot, there is a whopping 4096 ways to win, which should please most, if not all players. In addition to that, the expanding wilds (more on these below) can give lucky players an up to x66 multiplier on their wins. Not bad at all. Therefore, the max win is a pretty insane 102,400 coins. We’re baffled.

This is a high variance slot, with a RTP of 96.07%.

 

Special Features and Bonuses

There are two main extra features, both taken directly from the song’s lyrics:

  • High Voltage Free Spins: when you see the High Voltage Wild on the reels, you’ll receive 15 Free Spins, which will also multiply any wins during either by x11 or x66. That’s not bad at all. And, if that weren’t enough, more spins can be triggered hne you land 3 more scatter symbols during the Free Spins rounds. We do love a bit of retriggering in-round!
  • Gates of Hell Free Spins: This one’s a beauty: get 7 Free Spins and one of the game’s symbols randomly selected as a sticky wild: the sticky wilds will stay on reels 2-5, but will stick (aha!) there until your Free Spins finish. Plus – if you’re lucky enough to get four sticky Wilds on one reel, you’ll get three extra Free Spins!

Graphics and Sounds

Before we get into the graphics of this slot, which is a whole other story, we have to discuss the soundtrack.

Throughout this review, we’ve explained how the slot has been inspired by the 2003 hit ‘Danger – High Voltage’ by Electric Six. Now, if you’re lucky enough to spin any of the Free Spins features, you’re going to hear the song itself!

In fact, when you start one of your spins, you’ll hear a small trill of the song’s hook…as you will when you win on one of your spins. Otherwise, the background soundtrack is a little bit electronic, a little bit suspenseful. It’s just as weird as you’d imagine, being inspired by a band like Electric Six!

Regarding the graphics, there’s a LOT going on here. Some players might find the background grid/nightclub/disco all a bit too much, what with all of the strange-looking symbols. But – as any fan of the sing would know – this is actually pretty similar to the song’s video, and actually makes sense. Some of the symbols – the bell, the taco, the disco ball – are actual direct references to the song’s lyrics: ‘Fire at the disco! Fire at the Taco Bell’.

When you enter a Free Spins round, or spin a Wild symbol on the reels, the whole set of reels will set on fire. It’s pretty cool to see.

Conclusion

The second we saw the name of the slot, we began to hear the song in our head. We laughed at the symbols’ obvious references to the song, and we recognised all of the little musical trills taken directly from the song. But – if you’ve never heard the song before, you’re likely to think this is one weird slot game. And you’d be right!

With some nice extra features, especially the x66 multiplier, this is a great slot for fans of the song – and even one for players who have never heard of it!
