Ladies Nite 2: Turn Wild Slot Review
After about 16 years since the release of the original Ladies Nite, Microgaming is coming out with a sequel for it, and it’s a completely changed game. Ladies Nite 2: Turn Wild has a different layout, better graphics, but they’ve also modified the RTP and rewards, and for this reason alone, I’d still recommend the 2004 release over this one. Read on, to find out why.
Ladies Nite 2: Turn Wild comes with a lot more lines, 5 reels getting 25 paylines in this case, compared with the 9 lines of the original. It’s a medium volatility release now, with a 93.43% RTP and a jackpot of up to 1,500x the stake. As for the major features that they’ve added, the Re-Spins are a lot of fun, the Wild Wheel can be great when it triggers, and the wild symbol will do a lot to help out.
Betting and Prizes
$0.25 is the starting point, in the game’s betting options. You take it only up from there, reaching a maximum value of $50. This allows the wagers placed in this game to cover lines with $0.01 to $2.
Ladies Nite 2: Turn Wild gives us a jackpot of 1,500x the stake at most, and that’s the result of heavy multipliers applying to the regular wins, which will only go up to 75x the stake (3x the stake per top combo).
Given the Medium volatility of the game, the rewards are not great, but not terrible either. On the other hand, I did find the slot’s RTP, of only 93.43%, to be disappointing and more than enough reason to recommend that you stay away from this Microgaming slot. Compare it with a 96% RTP that a modern slot machine is usually available at, and you will understand why. Even the original 2004 release had a Return of 96.10%, so I’d recommend the 16-year old slot, over this one.
Ladies Nite 2 Turn Wild Slot Features
The Re-Spins are an important part of the game’s offer. They trigger with each new combo that you form, and they hold the reels involved, while the others change. This can lead to improved winning combinations, and the re-spins only stop when that stops happening.
The Wild Logo is useful as well, typically as a replacement for regular symbols in new combinations, but at times you might get its own wins as well. Those can pay up to 75x the stake, same as the jackpot symbol.
As for the feature that can bring you the rewards up, from the original 75x to a much more impressive 1,500x, the Wild Wheel spins only at random moments. The spin reveals one of the regular symbols from the reels, which is transformed then into wilds with multipliers. Up to 24x multipliers are available this way, with collected values from all symbols shown.
Theme & Design
It’s a story that involves four young women that are having fun in a nightclub. We see the dance floor and the stage lights in the background, while the reels get images of the four women, of a couple of delicious cocktails, but also of four neon-style Royals. You add only the Wild Logo as the feature symbol, and that’s the entire line-up.
Ladies Nite 2: Turn Wild might’ve been an improvement over the original, if they didn’t mess up the RTP, reducing it from the original’s 96.10%, to a measly 93.43% in the sequel. I can’t recommend the game, it pays too little back to the player, at least on average.
