Playboy is one of the very popular branded slot games from the Swedish game provider Microgaming, that are known for their many incredible video slots. You may have played one of their 243 ways to win games before, like Immortal Romance, since they can be enjoyed in most certified online casinos. This game has a lot to offer, with wins that go up to 4000x your bet. Getting five of a kind during the base game will prove very lucrative in this slot, and the free spins bonus games is a big favourite too. When you start the game you place your bet between 0.30 up to 37.50 per spin in actual cash. It is up to you if you want to play for free or with real money.
Theme, characters and environment
Playboy is the world’s most famous lifestyle magazine, and as you might have guessed the game’s wild symbol is the Playboy Logo. The scatter depicts the actual magazines. First off, you place your bet before you can enter the incredible Playboy Mansion, which can be regulated with both Bet and Coin size. When you are ready, click “Spin” to start the action, or use “Auto Play” if you want a more relaxed gaming experience.
History and background
Hugh Hefner’s famous magazine “Playboy” was launched in 1953, and over the decades the game has exploded all over the world and today we can enjoy it many different formats. The man himself, Hugh Hefner, has become something of a legend, and we wonder if he has every played this slot game himself.
Theme and characters
A typical spin on this game will show reels with fast cars, motorbikes, beautiful ladies with some clothes on, and then we have the letters and numbers that we usually see, with Ace all the way down to 10. Although Playboy is known for showing more skin, and loved world-wide for that very reason, this is a sort of family friendly version, which means that you can play the game wherever you are. They may night be naked, by they are very sexy and gorgeous.
Environment and atmosphere
As is always the case with video slots from Microgaming, this game offers a gaming experience of high quality, with excellent graphics and really fantastic gameplay. The reels are set against the backdrop of a beach strip under a blue sky, with footsteps in the sand. It feels luxurious, exclusive and sexual in every way.
Symbols and soundtrack
Playmates and their sexual beauty is at the centre of this game, and the Playboy lifestyle which entails everything that is luxurious, powerful and free. Imagine the lifestyle you get to enjoy when you’re one of the most beautiful women in the world with a liberated attitude towards the good things in life. That is why this game includes pictures of fast cars, cool motorbikes, expensive gold watches and such things.
You will see the Magazine Scatter Symbol and the Playboy Logo symbol is wild. The most interesting symbol to get on the reels is the scatter, because that is how you activate the bonus game. Both symbols are designed with nice graphics, which also adds to the gaming experience.
When you get at least three Magazine scatter symbols on your reels, you get to play the Playboy Club Bonus game. There are four bonus games and they all come with free spins and additional features. An interesting aspect here is that you get access to more lucrative bonus games as you continue playing the game, and when you have activated the bonus game 20 times you reach Platinum status. This is well aligned with the exclusive spirit of Playboy Magazine, where it is all about the best, the most expensive and the most desirable.

The Kimi Bonus game awards players with 10 Free Spins, and all regular wins are multiplied by x5. It is also possible to re-trigger Free Spins during this Bonus game. In the Sofia Bonus game they have stepped it up to 15 Free Spins, and added a Running Wilds feature. Here the Playboy Logo creates a wild symbol stack which grows with each Free Spin. In the Sofia Bonus it is not possible to re-activate any free spins.
The third bonus is called the Ashley game, which gives you 20 free spins. Here the unique feature is the Rolling Reels feature, in which all symbols in a winning combination explode and vanish when the players have been paid. The symbols above the exploding icons drop down to fill the empty spaces. New winning combinations that form after the drop down are multiplied by 2x automatically, and the multiplier in this bonus game increases by 1 up to 5x as long as the wins keep on coming, otherwise the value of the multiplier goes back to 1x. Last but not least, we have the Jillian Bonus game, in which the players get 25 free spins. This round has a Wild Night feature where up to five reels are turn into wild reels, and this bonus game is triggered randomly.
The ‘Playboy Logo’ symbol is wild. You have probably seen it before, with the bunny ears. In this symbol the bunny is black against a steel type background. Wild substitutes for all other symbols, except for the Magazine scatter symbol.
There is only one bonus feature in this Playboy video slot, and it is activated when you get at least three of the ‘Magazine’ scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. Players look forward to this event, as it triggers the free spin mode.
