Playboy Gold Jackpots Video Slot Review

Playboy Gold Jackpots: Demo

Microgaming is back with another video slot based on the ubiquitous men’s lifestyle brand. Playboy Gold Jackpots is a 5 reel, 6 row, 30 payline video slot that features a quartet of Bunny girls, colossal symbols and wild multipliers that can combine to boost payouts by up to 25x. Trigger the Bonus Wheel for free spins and jackpot prizes worth up to 2,500 times your total bet. Stakes range from between 10p and £60 per spin.

Understated design

Considering the glamour theme, the design in Playboy Gold Jackpots is rather low key. The plain red reels include heart, diamond, club and spade symbols as well as a silver star and 4 Bunny girls – Carly, Gia, Hiromi and Stephanie. The latter of the quartet is the best paying symbol, awarding 7 times your total bet if you land 5 on a payline.

Colossal symbols & wild multipliers

The 4 Bunny girls can appear in 3 or 4 high stacks. These stacks can combine on the middle 3 reels to create colossal 3×4 symbol blocks. The wilds can come with multipliers attached. These can boost payouts by 2x, 3x or 5x if you land one of them in a winning combination. Better still is if you manage to land more than one wild in the same winning line. In that happy event, the multipliers are combined. In theory, you could end up with a 25x boost (by getting five 5x multipliers).

Wheel Bonus feature

The other extras on offer in Playboy Gold Jackpots come via the Wheel Bonus feature. This is triggered when you land a fully formed Wheel on the reels. If part of the Wheel is sitting just above or below the reels you could benefit from a nudge which moves it into the triggering position.

Jackpot prizes of up to 2,500 x bet

You’ll then get a spin of the bonus wheel. Segments here are divided into the 4 potential jackpots or a trigger of the Free Spins feature. The jackpot prizes award 20, 100. 500 or 2,500 times your total bet. Land in a free spins segment and you’ll play out an initial 10 free spins.

10 free spins with jumbo symbols

During those 10 free spins, the reels dominated by colossal symbols which are on in play on each free spin. Land a fully formed Bonus Wheel during the feature and you’ll get another chance to land 1 of the 4 jackpots or add an extra 15, 20 or 25 free spins to your tally.

Medium volatility

The Playboy theme won’t be for everyone. There’s nothing particularly outrageous on offer in Playboy Gold Jackpots in terms of design or for that matter, gameplay. The features are solid enough though and the wild multipliers, colossal symbols and Wheel Bonus extras are a nice combination and offer some decent variety.

It’s not an especially volatile video slot either with the variance in the medium range. If you liked Microgaming’s first Playboy-themed slot, then there’s plenty of similar action on offer in this sequel. Honestly speaking, Microgaming offer much better slots with Immortal Romance or Avalon II my recommendations.
