If you were invited to a Playboy party you would likely expect glitz and glamour, and that’s what this slot release from Microgaming and Gameburger studios aims to bring to the party. Much like the Playboy brand itself, Playboy Fortunes is more glamorous and less overtly sexual than Playboy Gold Jackpots, which Microgaming made with another of its development partners, Triple Edge Studios. Die hard Playboy fans need not worry, though, as three Playboy bunnies do feature as the game’s top symbols. Most of their modesty is preserved by triple 7s, too. This slot features two separate bonus features, including the Playboy Fortunes Bonus which can be awarded right from the base game.
Pros & Cons
- Less tacky update for the Playboy brand
- Two bonus features, with potential winnings synced to bet level.
- Decent jackpot from even the lowest stake.
- Scatters only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4.
- Gameplay and sounds are busy.
- Main bonus feature lacks depth.
How to Play
To select your bet level simply adjust the arrows to the left and right of the bet display. Alternatively you can click on the bet to bring up a more detailed bet interface, allowing you to more easily cycle up or down bet levels. Unlike most other online and mobile slots, Playboy Fortunes doesn’t boast an auto-play feature, but it does have a fast play option which you can activate by pressing the Running Hare symbol under the reels. The 20 payline game is similar to other Playboy slots in that it operates a payline system rather than a Ways to Win structure, with all game symbols appearing stacked and completing winning combos from left-to-right.
Thanks to this classy update the game symbols don’t simply revolve around scantily clad Playboy models. The three models involved appear in the classic Playboy Casino Croupier outfits, with white cuffs and bunny ears. They each have 7, 77 or 777 in front of them, and pay between x7.5 – x37.5 your stake for landing five on a payline. They also appear as a threesome for a medium-paying symbol. The lower-paying game symbols are BAR, Martini, Key and Bow Tie, all decorated with classic Playboy flourishes like diamond cufflinks with the Bow Tie and Playboy branded cocktail stirrer. The Golden Playboy Bunny Scatters award the payouts lit up in a scoreboard next to the reels, akin to NetEnt’s Turn Your Fortune slot which used a similar feature to good effect. The Free Spins Scatters appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 and launch the Free Spins feature when you land all three.
