The wombat says: Microgaming have loads of licensed games – think Jurassic Park, and Terminator – and now it’s the turn of Hugh Hefner’s cheeky Playboy brand.
The Hef established his infamous magazine in 1953 and its first issue featured Marilyn Monroe on the cover. Fast forward 50 years and The Bunnies are a household name spawning an empire for the Hef and his Playboy mansion before his death in 2017. He’d had a tough life, after all. He always looked like he´d just finished a round of Switch Studios Vegas Strip Blackjack didn´t he? Well, it´s a game you can play at home in your silk dressing gown.
Now it’s your turn Wombat fans! Hold on to your hats, it’s time to play Playboy Gold Jackpots slot…
Look and Feel
Glitz. That’s the first thing that springs to mind Wombat fans, but this isn’t a bad thing.
The background to the reels is all done up in golden and glitter, while your reels are dark red. If Bunny Girls are your thing, then you’ll have a big a smile on your face as there’s one of them to the left of the reels in all her glory. Meanwhile, your spins are accompanied by some lounge-y electric guitar which sounds a bit sleazy to this wombat – but, you decide!
There´s as much gold on this game as the Gods of Gold slot from NetEnt. Have you tried the Infinireels concept by the way. Anyway, I digress.
Playboy Gold Jackpots Slot Game Play
Playboy Gold Jackpots slot has 5 reels, 6 rows and 30 fixed pay-lines. Bets range from 0.10 to 60.00 per spin in your local hoops so everyone can play; from slot novices to the the Hugh Hefners amongst you.
Your symbols on the reels include: blue diamonds, purple clubs, red hearts, and orange spades, a white star and the 4 buxom Playboy Bunnies, Carly, Gia, Hiromi, and Stephanie. Stephanie is the most valuable Bunny and she’ll give you 7x your bet if you manage to land 5x in a row. The whole set up reminds us of the ambience you get on our Baccarat Switch Studios game. Upmarket!
These lovely ladies will also land stacked on the reels, and, if you hit 3x of them on reels 3,4 and 5 they will turn into a jumbo block (basically a colossal symbol) taking up a 3×4 space. Hurrah!
There are also 3 golden wilds, each one of which comes with a multiplier x2, x3 or x5. The other symbol to look out for is the wheel icon. Land a full wheel symbol as a colossal-sized icon, and you’ll set off the Wheel Bonus.
Free Spins and Bonuses
Wheel Bonus This is triggered by landing 3x wheel symbols on the reels. Next, the bonus wheel will spin to award a prize of either 10 free spins or one of the very pleasing cash jackpot prizes; with x20, x100, x500 and a x2500 bonus available.
What with the Bunnies and those massive wins – this wombat needs a sit down!
But there’s more; if you land the spins, you are guaranteed to hit a colossal icon that appears on each spin which means mega wins, plus you can re-trigger the spins indefinitely if you land 3x symbols once again.
Struggling to land a full wheel? Don’t fret. The game will nudge your icon into view to award the feature. Cheers Hef!
The Playboy theme won’t be for all slot fans (Mrs Wombat loved it by the way), but the features are pretty good and with those Jackpots, or even the multiplied Free Spins there’s plenty of chunky wins to be had in Playboy Gold Jackpots slot.
