Microgaming is adding another Playboy-branded title to its portfolio with Playboy Gold.
The new online slot, Playboy Gold will be the successor to Microgaming’s iconic and hugely popular original Playboy online slot which was launched in 2013 and a sister game to the revolutionary Playboy Live Dealer, the gaming industry’s first branded live dealer studio.
Microgaming is doing more than extending the brand partnership with a new online slot, Playboy Gold. It is a well-established brand, delivered with cutting-edge new gaming technology. Playboy Gold delivers a new six-reel slot format with a raft of base game and bonus features to keep players entertained, whilst still embracing the iconic and global brand to its fullest. The game will be launched to Microgaming casinos worldwide (including our recommended online casinos for Canadians – Royal Vegas, All Slots, Ruby Fortune, Jackpot City and Betway) on 7 March 2018.
Playboy Gold Features
With the game is not entirely completed and still in development, Microgaming officials have decided to keep much of the Playboy Gold game play information close to their chests. However, some minor details have been mentioned, regarding the release date and the game layout.
Playboy Gold has been developed by Triple Edge Studios, a new independent studio that is providing exclusive content to Microgaming. Officially launching Playboy Gold at ICE in London, February 6-8, the studio will be creating original, high quality games which will be available exclusively under contract to Microgaming and Quickfire online casinos.
Whilst the theme might seem a little old-fashioned in our world of political correctness gone mad, the slot itself has plenty of interesting features. With six reels and 100 paylines, Playboy Gold is certainly a very different and divergent step away from an average online slot. Being a Microgaming product, the new online slot should impress the user with superb, crisp and elegant visuals, immersive & authentic sounds, a user-friendly player interface and hassle-free gameplay. Undoubtedly, Microgaming’s slick and smooth presentation and upbeat music will be an integral part of Playboy Gold. The graphics to be used in the game are skilfully crafted and have been combined with an original musical composition to impressively complement the unique Playboy brand.
Playboy Gold Game Play & Symbols
In Playboy Gold, keep an eye out for the Playmate jumbo blocks, large symbols that occur over multiple reels. If/when a jumbo block stops in the right place and completes a run, it can trigger a multiplier, an instant prize or open up access to the Wild Respins feature. In the Wild Respins mode, the triggering jumbo block will expand to entirely fill the centre reels. At that point, you’ll be rewarded with between 2 to 4 respins and your wilds will become ‘sticky’.
Be prepared for the Wheel Bonus, too, where you could potentially gain access to the Match Bonus Game. In the Match Bonus mode, you will need to flip over cards, matching them with the playmates to be awarded instant prizes – and/or wind up the multipliers.
You can also potentially collect 10 Free Spins from the Bonus Wheel, or pick up more of those handy Cash Multipliers, ranging from between 20x to a stunning 100x!
What Playboy Thinks
Microgaming’s licensing partnership with Playboy began in February 2013, with the launch of the world’s first branded Live Dealer studio. Just six months later, the original Playboy online slot went live. Now, Microgaming is releasing its Playboy Gold online slot to extend the industry reach of Microgaming and introducing a completely new group of players to the iconic Playboy brand of gaming products.
“For decades, gaming has been one of the most popular and iconic parts of the Playboy lifestyle,” said Valerie Golson, Playboy’s senior vice president of gaming and location based entertainment.
“From our successful Playboy clubs and casinos and land-based games to our VIP player events and our online gaming properties, Playboy’s unique and exciting take on the world of gaming have been some of the most successful in the industry. We’re thrilled to be working with Microgaming to expand our partnership and introduce a new gaming experience for players around the world.” Valerie added.
What Microgaming Thinks
Microgaming must be ecstatic to be working with a worldwide globally known brand like Playboy. Playboy is an iconic lifestyle brand established by Hugh Hefner in 1953. Playboy rewards Microgaming with its 97% global brand awareness, over 8.2 million Facebook fans and more than 17 million monthly visitors to its website.
David Reynolds, Games Publisher at Microgaming, comments:
“To work with Playboy again has been a real pleasure. They are one of the most recognised and popular consumer brands in the world and Triple Edge Studios has worked tirelessly to bring the brand to life in Playboy Gold. The game is hosted by Playmates Raquel and Audrey and delivers non-stop action. We are excited for the game’s launch and to be unveiling the title at the industry’s biggest trade show!”
Whilst not all details of the new Playboy Gold online slot are yet to have been announced, we like what we’ve heard so far. We like the sound of the game containing a revolutionary six reels, 100 paylines and radically new bonus and special features.
Playboy Gold sounds like a slot that will likely serve up a smooth and fun gaming experience, albeit wrapped in a slightly and outdated cheesy package of Playboy bunnies (i.e. a bevy of attractive women oddly enough wearing bunny ears).
If you consider yourself as a bit of a ‘ladies’ man and a bit of a Playboy yourself, you’re sure to love Playboy Gold. If ogling bunny-eared ladies isn’t really your cup-of-tea, but you love a good quality online slot with plenty of opportunities to win, there will be more than enough special features on Playboy Gold to give this slot a spin or two.
Playboy Gold will be available for play at all Microgaming online casinos including William Hill, Betway, Karamba Casino and 888 Casino from 07 March 2018 onwards.
