Back in January we told you about hints of a new Microgaming slot based on their popular Playboy licence- well those hints have come to fruition with the release of the glamorous, gorgeous Playboy Gold, now live across Microgaming casinos. You can find it at Casino Cruise for example, which is sporting a welcome package up to £200 with 200 free spins for new players right now.
The new Playboy Gold slot was developed by a new game studio called Triple Edge Studios, working exclusively for Microgaming, as part of the company’s effort to diversify their range and create innovation in the slots world. This offering by the new studio is certainly impressive and shows a talent for knowing what players like. In fact, the company includes online and land-based casino specialists and workers from the video gaming industry, robotics industry and even NASA!
Brendan Walton, Design Lead at Triple Edge Studios, said: “Following our studio’s successful launch at ICE 2018, we are very proud to unveil Playboy™ Gold, our first official game release under the new Triple Edge Studios brand, exclusive to Microgaming. Playboy™ Gold is the culmination of many months of hard work and we are extremely honoured to have had the opportunity to develop a visually stunning and feature-rich game that captures the iconic brand to the fullest.
“We are very excited to be working closely with Microgaming and I believe we have some amazing additions for 2018 that will deliver the very best gaming experience to Microgaming’s customers and their players.”
Playboy Gold has a new 6-reel slot setup and features very glamorous models, in high-resolution photography. The game is ‘hosted’ by models Raquel Pomplun and Audrey Allen, who change as you play and are backed up by a glitzy gold theme, as well as some very funky music! The six reels takes some getting used to and is a massive ten symbols high (for 100 paylines!), but we really like this. It’s a pleasant change to figure out a new slot style instead of loading up the same old reels.
Features include Jumbo Blocks which give the girls a spotlight and expand during free spins, plus a cash prize Wheel Bonus where Raquel spins up a win and can trigger a Match Bonus extra. Naturally, the game is also optimised for mobile play. This bonus can also trigger 10 free spins with a guaranteed Jumbo Block on each spin.
Valerie Golson, Senior Vice President of Gaming and Location Based Entertainment at Playboy Enterprises, said: “This partnership has produced in Playboy Gold one of the most exciting gaming experiences for players we’ve been involved with to date. We are so excited for the world to see Playboy Gold.”
David Reynolds, Games Publisher at Microgaming, said: “Made up of some of the most creative minds in the industry and beyond, Triple Edge Studios’ focus on crafting innovative content really shines through in Playboy™ Gold. The game is full of exciting new features that guarantee plenty of thrilling opportunities to win, complemented by high quality visuals that lend to the rich gameplay. Playboy™ Gold is a fantastic addition to Microgaming’s extensive portfolio, and it is fully optimised for mobile to deliver seamless gameplay on a wide range of devices.”
