Pokies are always more fun when setting up the game to suit yourself is straightforward and stress free. KTV delivers on all counts, with clearly marked symbols in logical places to guide even the greenest pokie player to a successful set up. Unlike some games, KTV has a low default setting, which you can easily change by using the button around the main PLAY symbol.
Take a moment to decide the ideal coin size, bet per line and number of lines you want to play, confident that you can stop and change them at any time. All players are awarded a generous $500 credit purse, and you can monitor this, along with your wins, quite easily through the control panel.
KTV is a game that goes against every rule standard pokies tend to follow closely. There are no distinctive icons here, instead you get five reels of brightly coloured floor tiles - no surprise that they are the type more usually seen on a disco floor. Some tiles are solid blocks of vibrant colour, while others have a star, cross, circle or square in the centre. The Scatter symbol is distinctive, as the tile is dark and mirrored
Unlike most games, KTV doesn’t offer an amazing range of options to win big, with the yellow star being the most notable icon on the paytable. Matching five of these nets a player ten thousand credits, which is more than impressive, even though 4 stars delivers only 1000 as a reward. But from this point, all other matches drop sharply. Five squares matched brings only 80 credits, with 500 being paid out for the maximum crosses.
Circles limp home last with just a 200 credit prize for five matched. So while you may not play KTV if winning big is your priority, there are still a few more opportunities to boost the pot. Manage to score three BONUS symbols (on reels 2-4 only) and you are in with the chance to win up to 825 extra credits, or look out for 3+ Scatters anywhere on the board, for up to 40 free spins.
When you win, it’s announced to the world by way of fireworks (for the Wild), and a host of hooping noises and moving chevrons which point the way to the winning square.
A nice change of pace
KTV definitely brings something fresh to the world of pokies, and the alternative approach is certainly a refreshing change from a lot of’ pokie experiences. While it is by no means revolutionary, KTV does offer a different vibe from the usual games, being much more relaxed, and daring to put the focus back onto the game itself.
