It seems rather strange reviewing the Bikini Party Slot game, as the very words Bikini Party offer up all kinds of images, and Microgaming are no slouches when it comes to fine imagery. It’s entirely up to us if we want to don our bikinis as we fire up this five reel, 243 Ways-to-Win online slot. There’s no pressure, there are plenty of bikinis on show in this slot to keep us going until next summer.
Bikini Party means beach party, and the lapping waves overlay the visual feast of bikinis that makes up our gameplay. Bikini-clad knockouts pose in variously alluring ways, but all in the good natured fun of a beach volleyball match. Is it any wonder that beach volleyball is one of the most over-subscribed in terms of ticket applications for the Olympic Games? Not on this evidence.
The bikini wearing girls of various styles and tans make up the game’s high paying symbols, and all spring into life in eyelash fluttering, pert and bouncy action when they form winning combinations. The 243 Ways-to-Win pay structure does away with traditional fixed paylines and instead pays out for any adjacent matching symbol combinations, from three adjacent symbols and upwards. Bikini Party also showcases Microgaming’s Re-spin Feature, which allows us to re-spin any paid reel in our search for winning combinations. The better the potential prize, the more we will have to pay to re-spin the reel, but used correctly it can prove both bountiful and beneficial, particularly when used in conjunction with the Bikini Party Wild symbol.
Microgaming’s Re-spin Feature is a kind of in-game bonus feature, though Bikini Party does also boast a dedicated Free Spins game, triggered when we land three or more Beach Ball Scatters anywhere across the reels. All free spin wins are tripled, transforming this from a great party to one heck-of-a-party. And you know the party has started in the Free Spins feature because that’s when the music kicks in. Awwwl riiiiiiiiight.
You might have your own idea as to which of these bikini-clad beauties deserves to be the highest paying, though you could spend days choosing a favourite. Easy on the eye as they are, these girls aren’t the real treasure on offer in this game, though they don’t half deliver it in style. Wild Bikini Party style. Spring Break, anyone?
