Playboy™ Gold Slot RTP and Review (Microgaming)
MORE ABOUT PLAYBOY™ GOLD SLOT
In the first week of March 2018 Microgaming deliver the follow up to 2013’s original Playboy™ slot which was a 243 payline, high variance game.
The new Gold version has been developed by Triple Edge Studios under the MG license, and is a far more mainstream affair – less volatile, more feature-packed and utilising real playmate pictures in the graphics rather than the drawings favoured in the original.
This one comes with lots of features, including super-sized high-value playmate symbols which can expand to fill the entire middle reels setting off re-spins with sticky wilds.
There are also Wheel Spin games with cash prizes and free spins and a pick-me card game with multiplier cash prize wins, and a 10 free spins bonus round with guaranteed jumbo blocks on every spin.
Playboy™ Gold is a crowd-pleaser, that is for sure – there are few dry spins here, and plenty to keep you interested throughout. And with a bet range of 50p to £500 per spin it’ll appeal to players of all shapes and sizes.
Let’s find out more …
Some Key Facts About Playboy™ Gold Slot

- The game is set against the backdrop of the Playboy Mansion, with two playmates, Raquel and Audrey, either side of the reels.
- The low value symbols are the card suits, Hearts, Diamonds, Clubs and Spades, and the silver and gold Playboy chips. The high paying symbols are the four playmates, Stephanie, Hiromi, Gia and Carly.
- The playmate symbols fall as jumbo blocks of 4×6 spaces.
- There is also a Wild – the word ‘Playboy’ on a gold block which substitutes for all others except the scatter – and the scatter which is the Playboy™ logo.
- During the Free Spins features (10 spins) you will be GUARANTEED to land a jumbo block on each spin!
- Playboy™ Gold slot is available on all devices from 50p up to £500 per spin.
Playboy™ Slot – How It Works
There is a lot going on in this game, with some sort of feature or win falling on every 2 to 3 spins. Here are the key events:
Jumbo Block Feature – During the base game the four middle reels spin in synch, and the high value playmate symbols land as 4 reel x 6 row jumbo symbols. When this happens, one of three new win opportunities open up:
- Multipliers – up to 5x on all wins.
- Credit Prize – a cash bonus of up to 30x your bet.
- Re-Spins – your jumbo block expands to cover ALL of the middle reels (4 reels by 10 rows) and between two and four re-spins are triggered. During the re-spins reels 1 and 6 have just wilds blanks. Any wild that lands during the re-spins sticks for the rest of the round!!
Wheel Bonus Feature – You’re looking for three or more scatter Playboy™ logo symbols to land anywhere on the reels to give you a crack at spinning that Wheel.
You get one spin in this feature which can earn you a cash prize of 20x to 100x or one of the following two other features:
Match Bonus Feature – During the Wheel Bonus you can trigger the Match Bonus by landing the right segment of the wheel. In this feature you pick cards to form matches. Multipliers increase to up to 10x with the chance to win ALL SIX cash prizes if you get lucky on the second pick.
Free Spins Feature – You can also trigger the Free Spins from within the Wheel Bonus feature. This gives you 10 free spins with guaranteed jumbo blocks on each spin and wilds on reels 1 and 6 to drive higher payouts. There is no re-trigger.
How To Win At Playboy™ Gold Slot
Like many low to medium variance slots, Playboy™ Gold aims to pay out regular and low wins to keep you entertained, and it’s packed with features to keep things interesting. There are no ways for you to bend the slot to your will, but by way of a re-cap, here’s what to look out for when playing the game:
- 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 UK casinos so it won’t be hard to find one that offers Playboy™ Gold. We recommend Casumo, but there are plenty more on our UK 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.
