Playboy and Microgaming have teamed up to bring you a sexy and classy new online slot. This new slot features 243 ways to win, wild symbols that double your wins, four different free spin features, and achievements to unlock.
The Playboy slot is very similar to Thunderstruck II and Immortal Romance, but it’s not exactly the same as those two, it’s missing the randomly activated bonus where you get one free spin with up to 5 reels turning wild. I’m not really sad about that feature not being in this slot, while it can give you some very nice wins, it often only gives you one wild reel without much of a win and that can be frustrating.
The four different free spin features are triggered by the usual three or more scatters landing on the reels during the same spin. The first free spin feature is unlocked on the first trigger, and the second feature is unlocked after triggering the bonus five times.
Every 5th trigger of the bonus, a new type of free spin feature is unlocked until all four are available. You can choose to play any feature that has been unlocked.
I also heard that once you trigger the bonus 20 times to fill the meter, the ladies will remove their clothes, but I have yet to confirm this (only triggered it 5 times so far in the limited time I’ve had to play it).
Like TSII and Immortal Romance, once you get 3 of a kind, 4 of a kind, and 5 of a kind of a symbol without using a wild, you will see “Achievement Unlocked”. You can track which symbols you’ve unlocked, or need to unlock, by looking at the paytable (see one of the screenshots below for my current paytable status). Once all symbols are filled on the paytable, something will happen to the appearance of the game. In Thunderstruck II, the symbols turn golden.
The first free spin feature is Kimi, she gives you 10 free spins with a 5x multiplier. This is the only feature that can be re-triggered by 3 or more scatters landing on the reels during free spins.
The second free spin feature is Sofia, she gives you 15 free spins with Running Wilds. During this feature, wilds start to stack up on the reels, with each free spin adding 1 wild to the stack on each reel.
The third free spin feature to unlock is Ashley, she gives to 20 free spins with Rolling Reels. During this feature, when you line up a win, the winning symbols are removed from the reels and new ones are dropped in from the top. Each spin starts at 1x, and each consecutive win from the symbols dropping in will increase the multiplier up to 5x.
The last unlockable free spin feature is Jillian, she gives you 25 free spins with the Wild Night feature. During these free spins, the Wild Night feature can occur randomly, turning up to five reels wild. This is very similar to the missing random feature, but I like it better this way. They took out my least favorite free spin type from Thunderstruck II and added this one.
You can find the Playboy slot at these Microgaming Online Casinos.
Update: Canadian players no longer have access to this slot. You may have noticed that the Playboy slot simply disappeared from the list one day, with no notice or reason given. I can only assume it’s due to licensing and trademark issues, since there are Playboy branded slot machines in Canadian land-based casinos. That’s basically the same reason we can’t play IGT and WMS slots online, since those two software companies create the slot machines found in our casinos. If the Canadian government was smart, and wanted to catch up with the rest of the world, they would simply license and regulate these online casinos and these conflicts would be removed. Even the US, who was extremely opposed to online gambling, to the point of charging people and confiscating millions of dollars, has smartened up and started selling licenses.
