How Funk Master works
In the 1960s, in the United States, a new musical genre was born: funk. This mixture of soul, rhythm and blues, jazz and rock became very popular, thanks to singers such as James Brown. This style of music has truly revolutionized the musical world and is still very popular at the time of writing.
In this article, we will explain you how the latest slot from the provider NetEnt works, Funk Master. As you can see from the name of the slot, the main theme of this slot is funk. To immerse you perfectly in this universe, the provider has decided to place its starting grid in the middle of a nightclub of the time.
The faceted balls of all colors are present, while the starting grid is surrounded by lights that will immerse you perfectly in this universe so special funk.
Funk Master is a slot machine that was released on May 11, 2022 and is available at all online casinos that are present at Lucky7Bonus.
It is worth mentioning the excellent work of the NetEnt teams for having created such a captivating graphics and musical atmosphere. The starting grid is very large, since it has 8 columns with 8 symbols inside.
However, as you will see later, your column height can vary during your free games. Indeed, it will be possible for you to unlock a Funk Master bonus on this slot. You will also be able to find several different features that we will explain in the following lines.
Connections in this slot work in cascades, which means that a round of play stops as soon as no more connections are possible. Each time one or more symbols connect, they disappear from your starting grid to make room for other symbols. In addition, the holes left by the disappearing symbols cause the symbols above them to fall from one to several columns.
Unlike the vast majority of slot machines that work with lines, Funk Master works with cluster connections. It is a slot that is open to all types of players, since you will be able to bet between €0.20 and €200 per game round. Be careful though, depending on the game platforms you play on, the maximum and minimum bets may be different.
If you want to play Funk Master for free, you can do so directly at Lucky7Bonus.
During your pay games, three different features can come into play. The first works with wild symbols, represented by a multi-colored mirror ball. These symbols, whenever they are part of a connection, move anywhere on your screen to an empty square. However, if you have two symbols and only one of them connects, then only the one that connects can move.
Also, it is very important to understand that if a connection takes place and a premium symbol is not part of it, then it stays where it is.
The other feature is triggered by the white square on your starting grid. Each round of the game, a 2x2 square will appear on your screen. If you manage to connect all the symbols inside on a single spin, then you will be entitled to one or even two extra wild symbols and potentially have a chance to get the free spins.
However, if you make connections with a symbol that is present, but before the end of the spin you do not make connections with the other symbols, you will not be able to unlock the wild.
During your paid spins you can also have bombs appear on your screen. These can have multipliers of x2, x3, x5 or even x10. Each time a connection is made on your game turn, the winnings are placed in the WIN box.
When the round is over, the value of all the bombs on the screen will combine and add up to a final multiplier that will be used to multiply the value in the WIN box.
The different symbols of Funk Master
Funk Master by NetEnt is a slot machine that is composed of several different symbols, 7 of which are divided into two clear categories: premium symbols and non premium symbols.
First, we will look at the premium symbols. There are 4 of them and they are so called because they appear much less frequently than the other symbols.
However, as soon as they are part of a connection, they will pay you massively. They are represented by faceted balls of different colors: one orange, one yellow, one green and one pink. In the following two screens, the values of each connection are shown for a starting bet of $1.
Then there are three non-premium symbols. As you can imagine, the reason why they are called so is that they appear much more frequently than the other symbols.
Therefore, as soon as these three symbols are part of a connection, they will pay you much less than the premium symbols. As with the previous screens, the values shown in the following two screens are also for a starting bet of $1.
Next comes a wild symbol, represented by a faceted ball of several colors. This symbol, very popular with online casino players, allows you to connect with all the other symbols in the slot.
It has no value, but just takes the value of the symbols it connects with. Besides being a wild symbol, it also allows you to get the bonus rounds.
The dancing wilds hotspot square allows you to get extra wilds if you manage to connect all the symbols during your pay games. During the free games, this square gives you the right to a new feature.
The multiplier symbols are represented by bombs that come together at the end of your turn if a connection has been made. As explained, these bombs can appear in x 2 and x 10. They are also present during your free games.
You will also be able to unlock free spins in Funk Master. To do so, you will need to get at least three wild symbols on a single game round.
The different connections of Funk Master
When you go to a slot machine, it is very important to quickly understand how the connections work. When the starting grids are so large, it is sometimes difficult for the player to read the ways of connecting. That's why the vast majority of slot machines that offer such large starting grids don't provide you with connecting lines, but with cluster connections.
The principle of these is very easy to learn. For a connection to be made, a single symbol must form a cluster of 6 symbols that touch each other from top to bottom and/or from left to right. The more symbols you have in your cluster, the higher the payout for your connection.
For those of you who don't understand the principle of connections on the Funk Master slot machine, the following screen will help you perfectly. On the left side of the screen is a starting grid that shows a valid connection.
On the right side of the screen there is a starting grid that shows an invalid connection.
It is important to understand that there is no direction of connections on this slot machine. Thus, the connections do not work from right to left or vice versa, but can also work only from top to bottom (or bottom to top).
How the Funk Master bonus works
As we wrote in the introduction to this slot, you will be able to unlock free games on Funk Master. In this section we will explain how the bonus works in this slot machine.
First, to get the free games in this slot, you will need to get the wild symbol three times in one round. Once this happens, you will be entitled to 6 free games that you will not be able to retrigger.
The same features available during the paid rounds will also be present during your free games. Except that, unlike the basic game, this time the square is 3x3.
Just like during the free games, if you want to get extra wilds, you'll have to connect all the symbols in the box on the same spin. Except that instead of getting an extra wild, you can get from one to many if you're lucky.
Unlike the pay games that just give you extra wilds, if you manage to connect everything on the same game spin, you can get an extra high on your slot machine.
In total, you will be able to have a starting grid that reaches columns of up to 11 symbols. This is the only new feature to get your teeth into. The movement of the wilds as well as the operation of the multipliers are the same things as your paying spins.
