Bikini Party Slot
When we call this risqué it is no light statement, if five scantily clad buxom girls playing volleyball whilst passing out suggestive looks to the player doesn’t qualify, we aren’t sure what would! Based on exactly the same gameplay options and platform as a sister game Dragon Dance this new online slot game from Microgaming is clearly aimed a male audience with a drastic change in theme from the other title in this series.
On the face of it we have a familiar 234 ways to win 5-reel 3-row video slot arriving here, but with full compatibility for mobile devices and two bonus rounds available it starts to look more interesting. Add in a coin value ranging from 0.25 to 125 and the fact one of the bonus options is an unusual respins feature which increases volatility but enables wins of up to 480x the bet, and we are suddenly paying Kitty, Daisy, Sunny, Honey and Kiki appropriate attention! (We were not before – honest!)
Bikini party is bright, and we mean sunglasses required when we say that! Bold vibrant colours flash and fade all over the game both in the text, background and on the outfits of the rather obvious posing girls who occupy the screen frequently. Each girl has their own unique pose (a la baywatch) and matching outfit and you will want to see them frequently for more than the usual reasons – each girl being a high payout symbol standing apart from the other traditional Ace-9 playing card icons used on the 5 active reels.
The theme music is in keeping with the tone, it’s a little cheesy pop ditty which we muted out pretty quickly preferring to concentrate on finding the Volleyball icons which serve as the games scatter symbol, as three of these bouncing beauties (Yes we still refer to the beach balls) initiate the first bonus free spins round.
Three volleyball icon scatters anywhere on the reels will grant you 15 frisky and possibly risky spins, all reel wins are tripled as the screen switches to sunset and the bonus spins initiate, the spins can also all be retriggered. In addition to this fairly traditional online slot feature this game features a respin reels option, popular and well known in physical slots for some reason it is much harder to find in pokies online and personally – we like to have the option! Microgaming clearly agree and include it in this and several other games, after an initial bet a player can respin a single reel at extra cost as many times as they like for bigger wins until they alter either the bet or trigger a free spins bonus.
A standard wild symbol is also available and replaces all other symbols except for the scatter, this is even more useful than in a game without respin reels as it offers a further opportunity to match a win on one of the 243 way to win combinations available on this new online slot. Whilst 3 symbols in a row from left to right will collect you some smaller regular wins it is definitely the 5 symbol combinations where the big wins are to be found. As it costs extra cash to respin a single reel this does form almost a gamble like feature in that it can drain balance quite quickly, however players close to a 5 of a kind win and chasing the 60 thousand jackpot available at max bet are likely to heed no warning!
It may not have the class of the official playboy slot by Microgaming but this clearly male orientated game does offer a simple and tongue in cheek theme alternative to the world of slot games. If the game play appeals but the theme does not you can always play the sister slot Dragon Dance instead so we say no harm no foul as we judge this volleyball beach spectacle with a solid jackpot and interesting bonus spin features.
