DJ Fox Slot Review
Stack the decks with old-school records and win what you see in Push Gaming’s latest release, DJ Fox!
DJ Fox is the latest Push-up slot since the release of Generous Jack in 2022, where the ‘Win What You See’ gameplay experience offers a different take on the Push-up feature.
Push Gaming’s Generous Jack was a huge hit with players looking for something outside the ordinary, and now they’re back with DJ Fox, equipped with a modernized theme that will surely get your blood pumping.
To quote Push Gaming’s Senior Game Producer, “DJ Fox is a classic Win What You See game featuring a banging techno soundtrack. We can’t wait for players to experience the thrill of DJ Fox!”
DJ Fox Base Game and Features
DJ Fox is a 3-reel, 5-row Video Slot that holds up to 15 symbols. The minimum bet available here is £.€0.10 per spin and the maximum bet available is £.€100 per spin. DJ Fox has 11 Record symbols with values between 00 and 9, VIP symbols, and Duds in play.
Win What You See
During gameplay, landing a Record symbol on an active row will award the value attached to it. You will be paid your base bet amount which is then multiplied by the figure won.
If 2 or more Record symbols land next to each other (from left to right), it will award the win as a 2 or more digit figure. However, if a Dud symbol is between the two values, it will act as a Blocker that separates the two values.
- If a 5 symbol, Dud, and a 0 symbol land on the same active row, you will be paid your base bet amount which is multiplied by 0.5.
- At the end of a spin, if a 5 and 0 symbol are next to each other, followed by a Dud at the end, the 5 and 0 will combine and you will be paid out your base bet amount multiplied by 5.
- If a 5, Dud, and 3 symbol land from left to right on an active reel, the Dud symbol will again as act a Blocker, separating the two. In this instance, the 5 and 3 symbols are accumulated, paying out the base bet amount multiplied by 0.8.
- At the end of a spin, if a 5, 00, and Dud symbol land on an active row from left to right, you will be paid your base bet amount which is multiplied by 50.
When a VIP symbol lands on an active row, the next row above it will become active. The VIP symbol is then collected and stored in a special Multiplier Meter to the left of the reel set.
Once a new row is active, any VIP symbols that land on the new row will also be collected in the Multiplier Meter, activating another row above it, causing a Respin to trigger.
During Respins, all positions containing Duds will spin again whilst all Record symbols are held in place. Once all Respins have concluded, all active rows are evaluated for wins. All rows except the first are made inactive at the start of a new spin.
To trigger one of the Win Multipliers, a portion of the Multiplier Meter needs to be filled. Each VIP symbol that lands will fill the lowest available position of the Multiplier Meter.
When a Win Multiplier is reached, at the end of a spin, your total win will be multiplied by the value highlighted on the Multiplier Meter. At the start of a new spin, the Multiplier Meter will reset.
Meter Lock Feature
The Meter Lock feature is a random trigger that locks your current progression on the Multiplier Meter in place for the next spin. This feature can only be triggered at the end of a spin when VIP symbols have been added to the Multiplier Meter.
All unlocked rows and meter progression are locked in place for the next paid spin. The Meter Lock is a persistent feature that is tied to the selected bet. If you were to change your bet or activate the Push-up feature, all Multiplier Meter positions will become inactive.
Before you can begin spinning, you will be given the option to activate 1 of 4 Push-up features that increase your current bet, as follows.
- 2 Rows active – 2.5x of the base bet (RTP 96.42%).
- 3 Rows active – 5x of the base bet (RTP 96.21%).
- 4 Rows active – 7.5x of the base bet (RTP96.36%).
- 5 Rows active (full reel set) – 10x of the base bet (RTP 96.31%).
DJ Fox: Our Verdict
DJ Fox introduces and welcomes the newest quirky personality to Push Gaming’s cast of colourful characters, and while we don’t doubt that the cool and calculated fox won’t draw his own fanbase, we’re not sure the game will. The jury is still out on whether the Generous Jack style gameplay hits a chord with players, yet the consensus thus far is that it’s not quite as appealing as the good old conventional reels.
Push Gaming deserve kudos for trying something new, even if it doesn’t stand out as a smash hit, and DJ Fox does try something new. There are some differences to Generous Jack – there are no free spins round. Does it need one? Some will argue it does, yet Generous Jack had a mode whereby it offered a meagre 3 spins, making it rather unexciting at the best of times.
DJ Fox makes use of multipliers instead, and it wraps it into one tidy package. It may be devoid of Free Spins, but its potential is identical to that of Generous Jack at 10,000x the bet, which makes it quite appealing all on its own.
Overall, DJ Fox doesn’t make itself known as the best of the best, but it’s worth a visit.
