While other Microgaming slots are inspired by silver or gold, the precious metal chosen in this case is obviously the platinum. Pure Platinum slot is all about this metal, which is present in pretty much all the symbols and in the surrounding graphics as well. While in the case of gold this kind of focus can get tiring, here it actually makes for a decent looking slot machine. The quality of the design has something to do with it. Expect to find stacked wild symbols, scatters and free spins which can pay at 5x the usual prize. You’re using 5 reels with 40 lines on them, and you can win a top prize of $2,500.
Betting and Prizes
Even with 40 active lines, this game will not be an expensive one to play. Your coins will have low values, from $0.01 to $0.05 only, so you can’t wager too much on a line, even with the maximum of 10 coins that are allowed. Since the line bet can reach $0.50, the total for 40 lines can get to $20, but no more.
The best reward is normally at 1,000x, or $500, but it can be increased to 5,000x, or $2,500, if won during free spins which have high multipliers.
Pure Platinum Slot Features
The Pure Platinum Logo will be selected for the wild’s role. This one comes stacked on the reels of the game, so you typically get a lot more help from it than you would from wilds in other slots. As a wild, you use it to replace another icon, but only if it lands on the payline where that substitution is necessary. You can also form a combo that has only wild logos in it, the payout in that case reaching 1,000x in the base game.
The Pure Platinum Record will offer you access to prizes which range from 1x to up to 100x the bet. You use these scattered icons to trigger free spins as well, but 3 or more are required in this case. You have a choice here, between three types of free spins, with multipliers that can vary. The largest number of free spins gives you 50 rounds, but the multiplier will be at 1x. The lowest number of free spins gives you 10 rounds, with 5x multipliers. The middle ground has 25 free spins for you, with multipliers at 2x. You can’t retrigger this feature.
Theme & Design
It’s a platinum themed slot, so naturally this particular metal will be used everywhere. It’s in the border which surrounds the reels, you see the smelter plant in the background, and on the reels the symbols are with platinum bars, platinum diamond rings, logos and poker cards which seem to be made out of the same metal.
Pure Platinum gets you a pretty regular type of action, with decent but not great graphics, and all things considered I think it’s an OK game to play, but not one that must absolutely has to be tried.
