Playboy is one of the most recognizable brands of today. With that popularity, it was only fair that the franchise got a slot game inspired by it. There was a release with the same theme a while back, which the founder himself actually got to witness, but it's no longer available for playing which is why Triple Edge Studios created Playboy Gold Jackpots. It's a 5 reel slot with 6 rows and 30 paylines. It has some fun features and the payouts are decent as well.
When one thinks of the amazing Playboy franchise there is a lot that can inspire. It was founded back in 1953 by Hugh Hefner and since then became a world-known brand. Whit that long of a history it’s no wonder that it became an empire. The name has been mentioned just about anywhere, which just contributed to the rise to the top.
The life of the founder and his empire have been talked about and used in many movies and series. It’s a trademark of everything luxurious and enjoyable. Hugh Hefner lived long enough to see the first edition of the game, but that doesn’t mean that the current version is any less good.
The games’ design is going to mainly appeal to the male audience. The background is very simple yet has a luxurious feel to it and is gold with red reels. The symbols include card signs and 4 different playmates: Stephanie, Gia, Carly, and Hiromi. The graphics are quite good and the soundtrack reminds of a fashion show or party at the mansion with all the chatter in the back.
Aside from appealing looks, the game offers quite good payouts. The player can bet a minimum of 0,10 and a maximum of 60 coins per spin. It’s a low volatility game with a 96,08% RTP which isn’t bad at all. With the help of features, the player can win up to 2,500x the stake which is a bit harder to reach but not impossible. It’s safe to say that the gameplay is great, which is really what it’s supposed to be about.
No game would be as fun without the features there to help out with the win. They definitely make up for the lack of creativity in the design of the game. The first is the Wheel Bonus feature that is activated when the player lands a Wheel Jumbo Block. It's divided into 3 parts and they have to be matched up to complete the wheel. Once the feature is activated, the player gets free spins or a Jackpot.
There is 4 different jackpots on the wheel represented by different colors and carrying different prizes. Purple awards the player 20x and red a 100x the stake, while orange awards 500x and gold 2,500x the stake.
The Free Spins feature can be triggered during the Wheel Bonus feature by landing on the red segments of the wheel. The player then gets 10 free spins and has a possibility to score additional ones by landing on a retrigger. The player can this way get 15, 20 or 25 additional spins.
Overall, the game is quite playable. The design is simple but does represent the luxury brand. The designers could have put a bit more thought into it, but sometimes luxury is simplicity. The features and opportunities that the player gets are very tempting. The payouts are good and frequent which makes the game exciting since it has low volatility. With everything considered it's a game worth trying out.
