Marilyn Monroe Slot Machine Review
Marilyn Monroe was born Norma Jeane Mortenson in 1926 and became one of the biggest actors, singers and models during the 1950's and 1960's. Her appeal made her one of the worlds first sex symbols and while her life ended on August 5, 1962 the legend of Marilyn has lived on ever since. Now Playtech have released a game based on the icon.
The Marilyn Monroe video slot features 20 pay lines, stacked wild symbols on all reels and an impressive free spins feature where you can win multipliers as high as X10 and re-triggers which award a big 35 free games. The game play is very similar to some other popular Playtech slots like Great Blue and Irish Luck.
Marilyn appears on several symbols on the reels. The most important of these symbols are the Marilyn wilds which are stacked on all reels. The wilds act as win multipliers with any win that has a wild as part of the combination doubled. Getting five wilds on any active line awards a big 10,000 coins.
While a 10,000 coin win is a very nice pay Marilyn Monroe can award up to 200,000 coins during the base game if you get a whole screen of wilds. Clearly this is not going to happen frequently but it is possible.
After the top pay for the wild symbols there are lots of good mid level pays including 750 coins for five of the Red or White Dress Marilyn symbols. You can also win 400 coins for five Hollywood stars and 250 coins for either five Cameras or TV Guides. The rest of the five of a kind wins come in at between 150 and 100 coins. All of these wins are doubled if at least one Marilyn wild symbol is part of the win.
The Neon Sign symbols are scatters and are your ticket to the games biggest possible wins. Getting three or more activates the Backstage Bonus where you start out with 10 free spins with all wins doubled. You then get two picks to increase your free spins and multipliers (Preview). You can win up to 45 free spins and multipliers as high as X10.
During the free spins a full screen of the stacked wild symbols can award up to 2,000,000 coins if you have the highest X10 multiplier. At this level even the smaller pays turn into big wins. Keep an eye out for the scattered Neon Signs during the free spins as any re-trigger awards another 35 free games - one of the highest re-trigger amounts we have seen.
Of course the big multipliers and the big re-trigger bonuses come at a bit of a cost - volatility. In our experience getting the free spins took quite a long time and we did not see any re-triggers. Still if you do manage to get the free spins with re-triggers you are pretty much guaranteed to hit something big.
In the end the Marilyn Monroe slot is a great tribute to one of Hollywoods' biggest stars. If you're a fan of high volatility games like Great Blue and Irish Luck then the game is well worth checking out.
