Free Playboy Gold slot
Please be patient, some games take longer to load than others!
Playboy Gold slot is themed on the internationally recognised Adult brand well known for women wearing skimpy bunny outfits. Microgaming already have Playboy slot, but this time teamed up with Triple Edge Studios to produce a 6 reel slot. The first thing that is hard to miss is just how small the symbols on this game appear to be. Even on a desktop screen I found myself squinting to see what was what (I’m showing my age!). To accompany the gameplay two of the ‘playboy bunnies’ are permanently aside the reels, gradually moving from pose to pose. A generic twangy music track, similar to something you might get in a hotel lobby, loops in the background. So, will these bunnies share their rewards with us or will we be left wondering how they managed to whittle away our bankroll?
On the reels…
100 paylines are spread over a 6x10 grid in Playboy Gold, not something you see everyday. There may be good reason why we don’t see it a lot, as the symbols appear quite small. As previously mentioned you might feel the need for an eye test after a few spins, depending on your age. There are blocks of symbols that make up 4 ‘Playmates’ called Stephanie, Hiromi, Gia and Carly, these fill all but the two outer reels and can provide some interesting base game wins. The rest of the symbols are card symbols; diamonds, hearts, spades and clubs, playboy chips of different colours.
When one of the ‘Playmate’ jumbo blocks appear in the middle 4 reels they will release one of 3 prizes; a instant cash prize up to 30x your stake, a multiplier of up to 5x on all winning lines or up to 4 re-spins with the jumbo blocks held. The re-spins seem to be the most profitable of the 3 prizes, but are also the least frequent.
Land 3 playboy bunny scatters anywhere in view and you will trigger the wheel bonus. You are then presented with a wheel to spin, with one of the playmates (not even sure if they are called that anymore) encouraging you to hit a big red ‘spin’ button. Camera clickers go off and the girl squirms around whilst the wheel slows to reveal either an instant cash prize, match bonus or free spins.
Cash prize - Up to 100x your bet
Matched bonus - Accessible only through the Wheel bonus, pick playmates with increasing multiplier. One will end up being your reward
Free Spins bonus - Also only achievable through Wheel bonus, 10 free spins that can't be retriggered. Jumbo blocks appear on each spin
What can I say about Playboy Gold, this is a truly terrible slot game. The use of scantily clad women in a video slot feels uncomfortably out of sync with what is going on in the world. Regardless of that, the game is just a low volatility bore-fest with little in the way of redeemable qualities. We have seen the Bonus wheel before with slots like Tarzan and they just don't work. For those that were anticipating a really good follow up to Playboy slot, I am afraid you are going to be bitterly disappointed. I think this bunny should be put back in the box and left there for the rest of time...
