Microgaming has always been innovative in their slot design, as it is in this case, despite the fact that it is formed as a sequel to the five-year-old original Playboy slot. The game’s release date was March 7th – the same day it found its place in the Casino Heroes’ slot selection.
The New Bunny Look
While this new and improved Playboy slot hides many benefits inside the reels, its visual effects cannot be overlooked. The slot is equipped with a specific 6-reel and 10-row grid, boasting up to 100 paylines. On the side of each reel, there is one of the epic Playboy bunnies – in this case, Raquel and Audrey. Considering the source of inspiration, further elements of the franchise are also present in the reels, as the clubs, spades, hearts and diamonds are accompanied by silver and gold Playboy chips and four “bunnies”: Hiromi, Carly, Gia and Stephanie.
With a spotlight swirling around the classic background and a more modern look in the foreground, Playboy Gold has managed to offer a rather unique experience.
Playboy Gold’s Special Features
While the game play is rewarding in itself, there are a few special features which truly benefit Playboy Gold slot players. Namely, the slot has a Wheel Bonus feature triggered by 3 Wheels on the slot reels – these award you a spin on the Wheel that can multiply your stake 20-100 times. The other potential win is the key to the Free Spins feature, and the last potential win from spinning the Wheel is the Match Bonus feature. All you have to do is to pick and match a pair of cards for a certain multiplier, while each attempt makes this multiplier grow.
The Jumbo Block feature is just as rewarding, and it appears as an expanded Jumbo Block on the 4 middle reels (4×6). If you hit it, expect to get one of three prizes. The first is the Instant Credit Prize – a cash amount credited to your player account, while the other is a Multiplier on your Jumbo Block win. The last is the most generous – it is called Wild Respins and is featured by expansion of the middle Jumbo Block into a 4×10 format. This is accompanied by sticky wilds on the first and last reels, and can trigger two to four additional respins.
On a final note, the Free Spins feature mentioned earlier is another special feature. It is triggered by the Wheel Bonus key and cannot appear in the main game, but there are 10 free spins per round, and a Jumbo Block which appears during each of them in order to provide better chances to hit a win.
All in all, Playboy Gold has been able to live up to the name of its predecessor – with rewarding features and pleasant companions on offer, winning is the only outcome.
