PLAYBOY™ GOLD SLOT
Microgaming released the sequel to 2013’s Playboy™ slot, a 243 payline, high risk game.
A lot more mainstream affair, the new Gold edition is built by Triple Edge Studios under the MG license, and uses real playmate photographs in the graphics rather than the original’s doodles.
It has super-sized high-value playmate symbols that can expand to span the entire middle reels, triggering re-spins with sticky wilds.
There’s also a pick-me card game with multiplier cash awards and a 10 free spins bonus round with guaranteed gigantic blocks on every spin.
Playboy™ Gold is a crowd pleaser, with few dry spins and plenty to keep you entertained. With a stake range of $0.50 to $500 per spin, it will appeal to all gamers.
Let’s find out…
Playboy™ Gold Slot Facts
- Each of the six reels has ten rows and 100 fixed paylines, paying for matching symbols from left to right.
- The game is situated in the Playboy Mansion, with Raquel and Audrey as the playmates on either side of the reels.
- These are the low-value symbols: the Playboy chips in silver and gold. Stephanie, Hiromi, Gia, and Carly are the high paying playmates.
- The playmate symbols are 4×6 gigantic blocks.
- The Wild is the word ‘Playboy’ on a gold block, and the scatter is the Playboy™ logo.
- A gigantic block is GUARANTEED on every play during the Free Spins feature (10 spins).
- Playboy™ Gold slot is available from $0.50 to $500 per spin.
How Playboy™ Slot Works
This game has a lot going on, with a feature or win every 2 to 3 spins.
The high value playmate symbols land as 4 reel x 6 row giant symbols during the base game. As a result, one of three new win options arise:
- Up to 5x on all wins.
- Credit Prize – up to 30x your bet in cash.
- 2–4 Re-Spins are awarded when your gigantic block extends to cover ALL of the middle reels (4 reels by 10 rows).
- During re-spins, reels 1 and 6 are only wilds. Any wild that lands during re-spins stays for the round!!
Wheel Bonus Feature – Three or more scatter Playboy logo symbols anywhere on the reels will allow you to spin the Wheel.
This feature gives you one spin to win a cash payout of 20x to 100x or one of two extra features:
During the Wheel Bonus, landing the right portion of the wheel triggers the Match Bonus. In this game, you choose cards to match. If you are lucky on the second pick, you could win ALL SIX cash prizes.
In addition, the Wheel Bonus feature can be used to trigger the Free Spins. 10 free spins with guaranteed gigantic blocks and wilds on reels 1 and 6 to boost earnings. No re-trigger.
Win At Playboy Gold Slot
Playboy™ Gold, like many low to medium volatility slots, seeks to keep you interested with frequent little wins and a variety of features. There’s no way to bend the slot to your will, but here’s what to look out for when playing:
- Re-Spins and Sticky Wild Mode – The super-jumbo blocks in the base game are signs of some big win opportunities coming your way. Remember, you get sticky-wild on the outer reels for up to four re-spins.
- Wheel Bonus Cash Prize – There is a chance to land a 100x on the Wheel spins if you get lucky. That’s not a bad payout.
- Free Spins – There are no re-triggers available in Playboy™ Gold Free Spins round, but with guaranteed jumbo symbols with each spin you can land some tasty wins (especially with wilds thrown in on reels 1 and 6).
- Play Safe – This is a low variance slot so it won’t burn your bankroll like some of the higher variance games. Nonetheless, plan your strategy and stake carefully, and don’t go chasing those losses. If it’s not paying out, leave it for another day.
- Choose a recommended Microgaming slot site to play at – MG slots are available at most CA casinos so it won’t be hard to find one that offers Playboy™ Gold. We recommend Casumo, but there are plenty more on our CA slot sites page.
THE SLOT BUZZ VERDICT
Fans of the original Playboy™ slot from Microgaming may find this effort a little tame in comparison. The variance is much lower, though it comes with many more features. This is one for casual slot players and Playboy™ fans rather than slots thrill seekers. If you’re looking for something a bit more challenging this month we recommend having a go on Imperial Opera or Gold King by Play n Go.
