Twerk Game Characteristics
Twerk has a partitioned 3X3 grid on an UHD monitor, which, in turn, is positioned between two brown tallboy speakers. The sound system is set in a dance studio, with a cyan wooden flooring and a brown brickwork wall. There are five fixed paylines, eight symbols, seven denominations, six bets per line, 42 total bets, free games, and payouts ranging from $0.03 to $5000.00.
Twerk has one special symbol and seven ordinary symbols. The special symbol, a free games-activating scatter, is a golden brown “VS” on golden glitter. Ordinary symbols: a twerk dancer in golden brown hot pants; a dancer in a skin-tight “TWERK” costume; twerk dancer in a stylishly torn outfit; a twerk dancer in green denim hot pants; a twerk dancer in blue denim hot pants; a twerk dancer in red hot pants; and a twerk dancer in purple-and-black panties.
Twerk’s denominations: $0.01, $0.02, $0.05, $0.1, $0.2, $0.5, and $1. Twerk’s bets per line choices: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 10. The following are the Twerk’s total bets. 1 bet per line: $0.05 (minimum bet), $0.10, $0.15, $0.50, $1.00, and $5.00. 2 bets per line: $0.10, $0.20, $0.30, $1.00, $2.00, and $10.00. 3 bets per line: $0.15, $0.30, $0.45, $1.50, $3.00, and $15.00.
4 bets per line: $0.20, $0.40, $0.60, $2.00, $4.00, and $20.00. 5 bets per line: $0.25, $0.50, $0.75, $2.50, $5.00, and $25.00. 10 bets per line: $0.50, $1.00, $1.50, $5.00, $10.00, and $50.00 (maximum bet).
Betting $50.00 yields these Twerk payouts for three winning combinations. Dancer in golden hot pants pays $1000.00. Dancer in a “TWERK” skin-tight costume pays $5000.00. Dancer in a torn outfit pays $500.00. Dancer in green denim hot pants pays $200.00. “VS” pays $250.00. Dancer in blue denim hot pants pays $70.00. Dancer in red hot pants pays $50.00. Dancer in purple-and-black panties pays $30.00.
Three “VS” symbols offer indefinite free games, featuring a point-awarding dancing competition. Dancers who lose dancing competitions terminate the free spins, while won competitions prolong the free spins. Dancers participate in up to six five-round dance competitions.
Winning combinations unlock the side game, wherein pressing “TAKE WIN” claims the payout while pressing “TAKE WIN” redirects to the gamble game. Embedded on the brickwork, the card game’s only face up playing card is compared with one of the four face down playing cards whose face values players are required to guess—guessing a relatively lowly face value nullifies the payout while guessing a relatively highly face value doubles the current win. Twerk’s non-progressive jackpot is $5000.00.
The good but desktop-only Twerk software features include dynamic payouts, session statistics, and up to 999 customizable autospins. The sounds include cheering spectators and the electronic dance music accompanying both the vibrating speakers and vigorously twerking dancers occasionally silhouetted against strobe lighting.
