Playboy Slot Machine Review
Playboy is a 243 ways Microgaming video slot based on the Playboy empire that Hugh Hefner founded in Chicago in 1953. The game features four types of free spins that are unlocked as you play. This style of game follows on from the success of games like Immortal Romance and Thunderstruck II.
On the reels the Playboy logo is wild and substitutes for everything except the scattered Playboy Magazine symbols. Getting five wilds anywhere on the screen pays 1,000 coins or 5,000 coins if you're betting max. * While this is clearly not a huge jackpot you can in fact win up to 1,215,000 coins with the wilds on the free spins.
After the top pay for the wild symbols the next highest pays are made up with the four Playboy Bunny symbols. The pays are 500 coins for five Jillian symbols, 450 coins for five Ashley symbols, 400 coins for five Sofia symbols and 350 coins for five Kimi symbols. From there the five of a kind wins come in at between 300 and 100 coins.
While these wins might seem small you have to keep in mind that they can be multiplied by up to 5 if you're betting max and the fact that you can win these pays on multiple ways on a single spin. This increases the pays and can lead to some impressive wins.
Playboy has four different types of free spins which are unlocked as you play. Each time you trigger the bonus you move to the Playboy Club selection screen (Preview). Once all features are unlocked the selection screen reveals a bit more of the ladies (Preview). The free spins features are as follows.
- Kimi - Wins X5 (Screenshot)
Unlock : Available from the first feature trigger
Details : Win 10 free spins with wins X5 and possible re-triggers
- Sofia - Running Wilds (Screenshot)
Unlock : Available after triggering the bonus 5 times
Details : Win 15 spins with running wilds. An extra wild is added to each reel after each spin. After the third spin a whole screen of wilds is possible.
- Ashley - Rolling Reels (Screenshot)
Unlock : Available after triggering the bonus 10 times
Details : 20 spins where wins cascade and are multiplied by X2, X3, X4 or X5
- Jillian - Wild Night (Screenshot)
Unlock : Available after triggering the bonus 15 times
Details : 25 spins where up to five wild reels can be added on each spin. This feature is like the Wild Storm bonus on Thunderstruck II.
Each of the free game options have there pros and cons so it's really a personal choice as to which one you prefer. The biggest win of 1,215,000 coins is only possible on the Sofia and Jillian bonuses so if you're looking for the biggest potential wins these are the ones that you should select.
Microgaming have done a great job capturing the Playboy theme. The game offers some serious jackpots and the range of free spin features keeps things interesting. While we are sure that Hugh Hefner himself would be impressed with the quality of the game it is a bit ironic that even the founder of Playboy can't play this game online when he's in the USA.
