In February 2013, Microgaming and Playboy signed a licensing agreement that was soon followed by the release of a new video slot bearing the name of the flagship men’s magazine in the U.S. and other countries worldwide. The chic, glamor and exquisiteness of the magazine is preserved in the game that is extremely rich in bonus features. Symbols in the game look as if drawn in the 1950s-60s and even five card icons (tens to Aces) are adorned with posh accessories of every well-to-do man such as a brandy glass and a smoking cigar, an expensive watch, casino chips and a Playboy’s branded lighter.
The slot is based on a popular system called “243 Ways To Win”. Most slots have a number of preset paylines and a player has to land a certain amount of identical symbols (normally, 2 and higher) along any of the active paylines to get a coin award. In “243 ways to win” slots like this one, winning combinations are created when three or more of the same pictures appear on neighboring reels beginning at the leftmost reel. The position of these identical pictures on the reels is of no importance. Since there are no paylines in Playboy, you can only adjust the number of coins per play and a coin value to place a bet between $0.3 and $37.50. The two highest awards in the game are given away for hitting five wilds ($1250) or five scatters ($7500). Four sexy Playboy models are also high-paying symbols that award the maximum of $625.
Playboy’s iconic logo depicting a rabbit with a bow tie is a wild that stands in for all regular icons, doubles payouts and is able to create winning combos by itself.
The software developer has put in place an interesting feature that resembles the one in the popular Immortal Romance slot. Hitting three or more scatters (Playboy magazines) triggers a certain number of free spins. The more times the bonus is triggered, the more features you unlock that would accompany free spins:
- From the first trigger of the bonus feature, a Japanese playmate Kimi offers you 10 free spins at a multiplier of x5
- From the fifth trigger of the bonus, Sofia provides you with 15 free spins with Running Wilds
- As you enter the bonus for the tenth time, a blonde model named Ashley gives you 20 free spins with Rolling Reels and a cumulative multiplier of x2 to x5
- And finally, after the 20th trigger, a red-haired model awards 25 free spins with a randomly activated Wild Night feature.
When more than one bonus option is unlocked, you can select among the available options and take, for example, 15 free spins with Running Wilds rather than Jillian’s 25 free spins. Furthermore, a bonus progress is saved automatically and you do not have to start all over again as you enter the slot next time.
