Rival Gaming’s Costume Party tries to provide slot fans with a new gaming experience. It is a unique game, which takes traditional slot gameplay and mixes it up to create an affair you’ll either love or hate.
Briefly described, the game sees players dressing up three people attending a costume party. If you dress each person correctly (matching the symbols in this case), you win a cash prize. It is effortless to see which symbols match with which as each outfit is distinct.
Seems fun, but is this game worth playing? Find out below.
Costume Party Return to Player (RTP) and Volatility
Costume Party has a return-to-player percentage of 94.5%, which is a bit low compared to other online slots but still much higher than physical slot games at land-based casinos. The game has average volatility, so there is a chance you can win, but don’t expect wins as regularly as you would see in other Rival slots.
Other games are more likely to pay out than Costume Party, but not all of these games offer the same caliber prizes. This is something to keep in mind when making your final decision on this game.
Costume Party features caricatures, which is what you expect when you go to a dress-up party. People exaggerate the features of a person or profession they are imitating when dressing up, and the game seems to mimic this.
In terms of the grid, the game has a 3×3 structure. There are three individuals you can dress up at once and three items you need to match (head, body, and legs).
Here is a breakdown of the Costume Party’s gameplay:
In Costume Party, there are eight suits you can match, including a chicken, a nurse, a cowboy, a hero that looks like Wonder Woman, a knight, an astronaut, a witch, and, finally, a monster that looks like Frankenstein. As mentioned above, each suit is distinct enough that you will know when you have matched the item correctly.
The game features a wild symbol, which is the chest of an ape suit with a sticker with the word wild spread across the chest. The wild allows you to complete winning combinations, just like in any other game.
The game has a bet range that is sure to fit most low to mid-roller players’ needs. The minimum bet per line is $0.01, meaning that the minimum spin is $0.03. The game caps out at $15 per line, which is a max bet of $45 per spin, which is expensive but still manageable for a fair number of players.
Unfortunately, Costume Party doesn’t feature any additional bonus features outside of the wild symbol. To win big, you need to hope that you match Frankenstein’s suit for a max payout of 3600 coins if you bet max on two coins.
Costume Party Final Rating
Costume Party is a novel take on a slot game. We think that the concept is cute, but honestly, we got tired of it after a while. It’s like one of those iPad games you download to entertain small children –you download it for them but land up spending a few hours in it yourself until you see how basic it is.
Overall, the game is still worth playing for the experience, even if you are not a person drawn in by these sorts of gimmicks, to say you tried it. For these reasons, we have decided to give Costume Party a rating of 3 out of 5.
