Playboy Online Slot Machine review
Which male hasn’t dreamt about spending some time in the Playboy villa, surrounded by voluptuous and gorgeous playmates. Getting a massage from Miss November or a backrub by Miss March is a thing many of us would love to try, isn’t it? (Wink). Well, a visit to Hef’s Wonderland might be a dream that never comes true for the most of us, but we can at least imagine to be a part of the glamour of the Playboy villa when playing on the Playboy Online Slot, developed by Microgaming.
The Playboy Online Slot is a five-reel, 243 payline online slot machine with a maximum bet of 150 credits. It has a simple but addictive gameplay, especially for those who value attractive females. It has wild and scatter symbols, as well as four attractive Playboy models – Kimi, Sofia, Ashley and Jillian – with their own free spins and special bonus features.
The Playboy logo acts as the wild symbol in the game, substituting everything except the Magazine symbol. It doubles the win when substituting for any other symbol.
The ‘Playboy Club’ game is triggered by gathering three or more ‘Magazine’ symbols on the visible reels. The ‘Playboy Club’ is a progressive game, with several levels that can be reached. After triggering this feature five times it unlocks a new level.
There are four ‘Free spins’ in this game:
The first level of free spins come with the image of the attractive Asian model Kimi. The Kimi bonus feature gives you 10 free spins with a multiplier of 5x applied to all winnings. Free spins can be retriggered during these spins.
Sofia hosts the second level of the Playboy Club game, available after the fifth triggering of the feature. The Sofia bonus feature gives you 15 free spins with “Running Wilds’ – the wild stack grows by one per reel for every free spin.
The gorgeous blonde Ashley hosts the next level, after the tenth trigger. Ashley gives you 20 free spins with ‘Rolling Reels’ – each consecutive win increases the multipliers, up to 5x.
And finally we get to Jillian, the sexy redhead, that gives you 25 free spins with the ‘Wild Night’ feature that can occur randomly, turning up to five reels into wild. This bonus feature is accessible after 15 triggers. Wild symbols are not working during the ‘Wild Night’.
The payouts of the game can be quite generous, although there is no progressive jackpot offered: tens pay out the lowest amount, of up to 500 coins, and the biggest highest winning can be achieved when getting five scatter (the Magazine) symbols on the reels – 30.000 coins.
Playboy is a cool and sexy online slot, with a maximum bet of 150 coins, a spin / stop feature for quicker gameplay, autoplay and attractive bonuses (and models). It is available for web play through Microgaming’s Quickfire.
Faites vos jeux, mes dames et messieurs! Sounds French to you, right? Well, that’s because it is indeed French – the game has French origins, and it has spread from this European country to the rest of the world. In some traditional casinos French is still used at the roulette table, but asides the foreign language terms, there are some ‘jargon’ terms tied to this game that, even if they are in English, mean nothing to the untrained ear.
Let me explain some of these below.
Carré (French) – corner bet. An inside bet placed on the intersection of four numbers on the roulette table.
Cheval (French) – split bet. A bet placed on the intersection of two numbers on the roulette table.
Croupier (French) – dealer, operator. The person operating the roulette table, collecting lost bets, paying out winnings and spinning the wheel.
Dozen bet – a bet placed on the first, second or third dozen (12) numbers on the roulette wheel.
Five number bet – a bet placed on 0, 00, 1, 2 and three. Only available on American roulette tables.
House edge – the difference between the true odds and the house payouts in case of a successful bet. For example, a single bet has true odds of 36 to 1, but the payout of a successful single bet is only 35 to 1, the house keeping one unit for itself.
Inside bet – a bet placed on the ‘inside’ of the table (the number boxes)
Outside bet – a bet placed on the ‘outside’ section of the roulette table. Some of these bets (black/red, even/odd) pay even money.
Roulette layout – the grid drawn on the roulette table that contains all the places for bets.
Roulette table – the wheel plus the layout
Roulette wheel – the movable part of the table, divided into 37 or 38 slots – numbers 1 to 36, plus the zero and (in case of American roulette) the double zero.
Split bet – see Cheval (French) – a bet placed on the intersection of two numbers.
Street bet – an inside bet placed on three adjacent numbers
Straight bet – a bet placed on a single number. It has the highest payout of all roulette bets – 35 to 1.
Wheel roller – the roulette table operator, Croupier (French)
Of course, these are only the basics, the 101 if you please. There are still things to learn about the game, about the different sections of the wheel, about the different bets and outcomes, but those we will cover in a future article. Until then, have fun playing this great traditional casino game. Rien ne va plus.
Online casinos usually have an appealing name, an attractive design and fabulous bonuses that attract gamblers from all over the world. There is an aspect of the online casino experience that is maybe the most important, but mostly unknown to the player: the casino software used. Let’s see which software companies are responsible for our exciting and reliable online gambling experience.
Microgaming is the oldest player on the online casino software market, offering the first online casino software back in 1994. The company is a leader in its field, with an impressive list of curtomers of over 120 online casinos and 40 poker rooms around the world.
