The Playboy Slot is part of one of the most recognised brands across the world, so who better to develop the Empire’s online slot offering than Microgaming. Naturally this was one review I was reluctant to write, but a man’s got to do what a man’s got to do…
Think Playboy, think sex, glamour and sweet, sweet riches. Microgaming has nailed the essence of Playboy as this is one slot that has all three in abundance, and all in beautifully rendered graphics. If I’m honest I could take or leave the 80s adult movie-esque funk-rock backing track, but you have to admit that it does seem to fit the glamour shots perfectly.
The 10s through Aces symbols are joined by images of Playmates in various stages of undress and poses, one on a motorcycle seemingly the most natural. Microgaming backs up Playboy’s visual depth with intricate gameplay that will keep you going all night long. The instantly recognisable Playboy symbol is naturally our Wild, which doubles winnings when substituting for other symbols. Land five of these lotharios and you’re looking at the maximum win of 5,000 coins.
One word to the wise – as if to back up the high roller nature of the great Heff himself, the minimum bet on this game is 30 coins. However, as you unlock each symbol your Playboy Club membership can go all the way to Platinum, and so can the paytable. With Microgaming’s launch of the Multi-player Playboy – a five reel, 20 fixed payline version of the original – in November 2014 players can enjoy the glossy images with like-minded fun, loving individuals. If you catch my drift.
Three, four or five scatter symbols – a couplet of the famous magazine – allow entry into the Playboy Clubthe
Quite like a Playmate (I imagine) the more you enter, the greater the reward as each entry into the Playboy Club unlocks further bonus features. Sofia, Ashley and Jillian offer you 15, 20 and 25 free spins with Running Wilds, Rolling Reels and Wild Nights that increase the Wild Stack by one Wild per reel on each free spin, increase the multipliers up to 5x and randomly turn up to five reels wild.
You can’t help but think that 243 ways to win should be spun as 243 ways to get lucky, but maybe that’s too cheap a shot for the grandeur of the Playboy Mansion. Still, with these babes promising us Wild Nights and Rolling Reels, this is one online slot that I’ll definitely be calling back in the morning.
