Playboy Gold Slot Review
Playboy Gold Slot is powered by Microgaming and is played on a 6 reel, 10-row reel set with 100 pay lines. Playable from 50p to £500 (per spin) on all devices, you join classic playmates in this bonus feature-rich offering. With plenty going on, this action-packed is definitely in a class of its own!
Visually, Playboy Gold is unusual as it’s played on a 6×10 reel set – with playmates Raquel and Audrey at either side of the reel set, symbols on the reels include clubs, diamonds, hearts, and spades as well as silver Playboy chips, gold Playboy chips and 4 playmates (Stephanie, Hiromi, Gia, and Carly).
The game benefits from a ‘Jumbo Blocks Feature’ – this is triggered as large symbols which take up multiple reels can land on the reels. The 4 middle reels spin in sync to showcase the Jumbo Blocks during the base game and Free Spins feature (more on the latter further down). A Jumbo Block landing fully on the reels will trigger 1 of 3 features.
You have the ‘Instant Credit Prize Feature’ which is what you’d expect as you’ll get a cash bonus. The ‘Multiplier Feature’ gives you a multiplier on your win but the best is the ‘Wild Re-spins Feature’. Here, the Jumbo Block expands from a 4×6 block to become a 4×10 block completely taking over the 4 middle reels. You will then get between 2 and 4 re-spins with sticky wilds on reels 1 and 6!
Playboy Gold also has a ‘Wheel Bonus Feature’, and, is played when you get 3 Wheel scatters on the reels – you will get a single spin of the wheel where you can win a cash bonus of between 20 and 100 times your stake. You can also land the key which triggers the Free Spins feature. If you land a pair of playmates, you will trigger the Match Bonus feature.
The ‘Match Bonus Feature’ sees you pick cards until you match a pair – if you form a matching pair on your 2nd pick, you will win all 6 cash prizes on offer. With every pick after the 2nd selection, the multiplier increases from 2x (3rd card pick) up to 10x (for the 7th card pick).
Finally, you have the ‘Free-Spin Feature’ which can be accessed only from the ‘Wheel Bonus Feature’ – you are rewarded with 10 free spins. You cannot win more free spins but a Jumbo Block lands on every single free spin – normal wilds will also appear on reels 1 and 6 to help you win more.
Playboy Gold is unique in the way it looks and plays – with a classic Playboy feel, it has plenty of bonus features and lots to offer. It’s a low to medium variance game so the entertainment factor will be key. Saying that you can win big in the ‘Wild Re-Spins Feature’, because of the potential 4 re-spins with a Jumbo Block in place as well as sticky wilds on reels 1 and 6. Personally, I prefer the original Playboy slot from Microgaming as it’s simpler and much more volatile.
