ALL ABOUT BLINGED SLOT
On a Hip-Hop tip that started with Pimped, followed through with That’s Rich, and now gives us Blinged, Play n Go is drawing inspiration from the sparkle and glam of a scene that often celebrates glitz, diamonds and gold as the ultimate emblems of success. It seems like a suitable theme for a video slot and like the first and second games in the series, Blinged is stacked with the kind of Kardashian-West imagery you would expect, including, of course, a succession of bling rings and girls in big hooped gold ear rings, limos and bankrolls. There are also some nice features including guaranteed win spins, re-spins and multipliers. Let’s dive in to find out more.
GAME SET-UP, SYMBOLS AND GRAPHICS
So, load up the game and it’s like you are driving down one of the big avenues in lower Manhattan, huge towering buildings on either side and lots of bright lights emanating from the lower floors. They light up a 5×3 reel set that comes with 10 fixed paylines in action at all times. The low-value symbols are the classic cards, from 10 through to Ace, here of course made up of diamond-encrusted icons. The premiums are bankrolls, gold shoes, gold rings, and a trio of hip-hop girls. There is also a hip-hop solo girl in a big cap and flash jacket. Top-payers are worth 75x for 5 on a line.
Watch out as well for the Wild – the hip-hop girl with the cap that reads W-I-L-D. She will sub for all other symbols to create win lines, except for the BIG diamond scatters which are required to unleash the bonus round.
BLINGED SLOT RTP, VARIANCE AND PAYOUTS
The top potential payout here is 5,000x, a downgrade from the previous games in the series. Fans of high-risk slots play may also be put off by the downgrade in variance, from a classic high to more medium fare. Overall this is definitely a lesser version of the first two games in the Pimped series. The RTP however sits at a fairly decent 96.25% and you can start spinning from just $0.10 per play.
GAMEPLAY AND FEATURES
Ok, so aside from the wilds this game is all about the scatters and win spins. Here is how the features play out.
Win Spins, Re-Spins and Multipliers
You’ll need to land 3 or more of those massive diamond scatter symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 to set up Win Spins. These are effectively guaranteed wins – you’ll start with 5 and after each, if you don’t get a win, a re-spin ensues.
For each re-spin in the sequence, a Win Multiplier increases by 1x. This multiplier is carried over to the next Win Spin AND further scatters increase your Win Spin bank by 1, up to a maximum of 20.
And that’s all folks!
So, there you have it – Blinged is a simple slot and follows very much in the footsteps of Pimped. However, fans of the original will probably be disappointed with the watered-down stats and the lower variance. It makes for more stable gameplay, but a less thrilling ride for those who like their slots to go from 0 to 100 in seconds. Which of the three games you prefer will depend on your taste. Whichever you choose, have fun and gamble responsibly.
