House Of Fun is the new slot machine game from Ladbrokes Casino. The slot is themed around the uber successful 1980s band ‘Madness’. Famous for their catchy Ska tunes like Baggy Trousers, Driving In My Car and Our House, Madness actually hold the record for the longest number of weeks in the UK singles chart…an astounding 214 weeks!

The Band still perform today and have recently played the ‘V Festival’ as well as the closing ceremony for the London 2012 Olympics. With an appeal stretching back to the late 1980s it’s no surprise that the band are ‘cashing in’ on some of that fame.

Whilst I normally don’t like flimsy slot machine tie-ins the House Of Fun ‘Madness’ inspired slot is a lot better than I expected. The graphics, sounds and game play are well above the industry average. The slot includes eight videos of the band and five of their biggest tunes. You can even select which Madness song you hear as the games backing track.

Behind the ‘Madness’ style is a pretty solid slot machine experience. One which could stand on it’s own merits without the need for a theme. There are five ways to win Free Spins, which range from 1 to 15 depending on how lucky you get!

There is also a House Of Fun bonus game which is triggered by getting three scatter symbols. You then choose a band member who provides a base win amount which is added to all “picks” in the bonus. Then it’s off to a large room full of objects that potentially could hold prizes behind them.

There is a second bonus game with the House Of Fun slot which makes it even more potentially lucrative. Lucky Seven Bonus gives you two dice to spin, the total of which is multiplied by your winnings!!!

With a progressive jackpots, excellent graphics, music, bonus games and free spins, House Of Fun really is worth having a go at.
