Playboy by Microgaming
While the Playboy brand may not be quite as visible nowadays as it once was, Hugh Hefner and the team are still as prominent when it comes to marketing opportunities as ever and so no player will be surprised to learn that there is actually an official Playboy video slot, coming to us in partnership with Microgaming. Unlike many of the developer’s branded titles, this agreement extends further than just a slot, with a live casino based on the theme even available through many of their partners – something that we assume is a sort of replacement for the full Playboy Casino experience which closed down a few years ago.
Anyway, the slot is our focus and so let’s take a closer look at exactly what it has to offer. The brand certainly knows a thing or two about looking good and that has been translated to the reels perfectly with some great looking, if slightly cartoonish symbols. It’s not all about the bunnies either, with cards, motorcycles and other luxury items all taking their place on the board alongside the playing card symbols that look noticeably similar to the logo. These symbols are ready and waiting to be lined up using 243 ways to win, all with the help of the famous bunny logo which serves as the wild.
The Playboy magazine itself serves as a scatter on the game and three or more of those will lead to instant entry to the Playboy Club which, somewhat disappointingly, is just the bonus game! There is a choice of four different girls to pick from, with each being responsible for their own set of spins and multipliers. Opt for Kimi, for example, and you’ll grab ten free spins with a five times multiplier. Choose Ashley instead and you’ll scoop twenty free games with rolling reels, together with a multiplier applied to each and every consecutive win using the feature. One thing to bear in mind is that the more times you enter the Playboy Club, the better the selection, with more girls being unlocked on each subsequent entry into the feature.
Whether you’re a fan of the Playboy brand or not, this is a typically solid game from Microgaming that definitely warrants a few spins – especially when there’s no deposit or download required, which is the case here on our Games Mania version at the top of the review!
