The Playboy Multiplayer pokie adds a cool interactive element and some interesting new features to the hugely popular Playboy slot game released in 2013. While enjoying the same seductive visuals and enticing characters as the original single-player version, we can now play and interact with up to five other people as we spin the reels in search of big payouts, free spins, and huge multipliers.
The Playboy Multiplayer slot is only available in real money mode. So to enjoy this exciting addition to the world of online pokies, sign up and make a secure deposit for real cash credits at one of our trusted Microgaming casinos for Australians.
Rather than spinning the reels all on our lonesome, in Playboy Multi-player we can play in a virtual room with up to six other real-life slot players. We can actually see our roommates’ games in action while we play, and the chat feature allows to socialise with our fellow punters – so you can commiserate bad luck together, share in the jubilation of a big win, or discuss weightier matters like who is your favourite Playboy character.
This unique format makes Playboy Multi a real community slot game, which is great for casual players who miss the social element of chucking a few bucks in a favourite machine with friends at the local pokies club. This setup also gives the game something of a competitive edge, which has led to widespread speculation that Microgaming and its extensive network of Web casinos – such as Royal Vegas – may be set to launch a Playboy Multiplayer slots tournament in the near future.
Special Pokies Features
The original Playboy online pokie was packed with free spins and other bonuses, and the multi-player game is much the same in that regard. However, the way in which these features behave is a little bit different, and there is one particular addition which makes version 2.0 hotter than ever.
Free Spins Feature – You can unlock 12 free spins at any time during the base game. These are triggered at random, so you don’t have to land a certain number of scatters or anything like that – they will just pop up out of the blue. These bonus spins come with their very own wild feature – the Sports Car symbol – which substitutes for all other icons except the scatter.
90x Multiplier Bonus – There is one catch with the free spins: in order to qualify, you must keep the Bonus Thermometer active. All you have to do is keep spinning the reels. Play your turns continuously without any big lapses in between, and the temperature on the Bonus Thermometer (located on the right-hand side on the reels) will rise at a rapid rate. Keep spinning after the temp reaches boiling point to increase your free spins multiplier – which can go as high as 90x.
Magazine Scatters – While most symbols must connect in a specific left-to-right combination in order to get the job done, the Magazine scatter feature will fulfil your needs from any position on the reels. All scatter wins are multiplied by the total bet, whereas standard combinations pay according to the amount bet per line.
Playboy Wilds – Keep an eye out for the iconic Playboy symbol, which acts as a wild feature in the base game. Wilds can substitute for any other image in order to create the best possible combo, with the sole exception of the scatter symbol.
Paylines & Bet Limits
Playboy Multiplayer uses the same 5 x 3 reel display as its older brother. Here, however, payouts are awarded according to a traditional win-line system, whereas the single-player Playboy pokie employs Microgaming’s signature 243 ways to win format. There are 20 fixed paylines – this means we always play the full number of lines, rather than being able to select just a few to bet on.
We can bet up to 600 coins per spin on the Playboy Multiplayer real money slot. The coin size is fixed at 0.05 and we can wager up to 30 coins per line, which gives us a minimum stake of $1 and a maximum bet of $30.
This is a low-variance pokies game designed for social play as much as anything, so it is probably better suited to recreational and low-budget punters than it is to VIP hi-stakes slots players. But don’t take our word for it – go for a spin with Playboy hotties Ashley, Jillian, Kimi, and Sofia now at www.RoyalVegasCasino.com and make up your own mind.
