The third game in the Playboy series is coming, and once again we’re looking at a collaboration between Microgaming and a smaller company, in this case Triple Edge Studios. It’s another branded release, just as you’d expect, with medium volatility and some decent prizes that could be paid.
Playboy Gold Jackpots will feature 5x6 reels, so it’s a fairly large game area, and it offers a total of 30 active lines. You have a medium volatility game here, which could even pay up to 2,500x the stake, meaning that as much as $150,000 could be yours, with a big enough wager, of course. Otherwise, expect a game with exciting features, including free spins, a Bonus Wheel, multipliers and Jumbo Blocks. RTP being set at 96.08%, the game is about as fair as most Microgaming slots right now.
Playboy Gold Jackpot Betting and Prizes
You select the game’s wager, and it can be as low as $0.15, but also as high as $60. It has a betting range which should make the slot accessible to pretty much everyone, which is good, since the theme insures that a lot of people will want to give it a try.
The highest payout that the game is willing to pay is going to be worth 2,500 times the amount wagered that round, which could mean even up to $150,000. There are certain multipliers inside, which will help you get to that level.
Playboy Gold Jackpots is considered a game with only medium volatility, which is a level of risk that a lot of players will prefer, when looking for a better top jackpot, but without being willing to risk their money too much. Worth mentioning is also that the game has the RTP set to 96.08%, which is just enough to make it about average. Since it’s a branded game, that’s actually not too bad.
The slot’s wilds are present only on the reels 1 and 5, and when showing up there they will also have multipliers to apply. Depending on which version you get, the wins will be multiplied by 2x, 3x or 5x, when one of those wilds contribute to their combinations.
Jumbo Blocks are symbols which take up to three symbols from just as many reels, on the middle columns, and they combine them to get a huge one occupying 3x4 symbols. For this, you need matching stacked symbols of the same type.
The Wheel Bonus is also worth looking into, as a symbol which triggers a bonus game. The bonus has a Wheel of Fortune, which spins and pays a prize, one even as high as 2,500x.
Once you get into the free spins, there will be Jumbo Blocks present each round, which makes winning combinations more likely to form. It also boosts the odds for the other features triggering.
Theme & Design
It’s a Playboy themed game, yes, but there aren’t quite that many graphics or features that will remind you of the brand that it’s supposed to represent. A lot of the symbols you find on the reels will be made up of card suits or stars, though there are four playmates appearing as stacked symbols also. These are the only ones theme related, and I just wish the game had a lot more to offer.
Playboy Gold Jackpots is an OK third installment in this series, but for a branded slot machine there was room for a lot more related symbols.
