How to Marry a Millionaire
The theme of Marilyn Monroe slot is as familiar as Marilyn Monroe herself. Marilyn may have died almost 50 years ago now, but she’s still seen as a sex symbol today and the slot machine is filled with some of the more popular and well-remembered images of the actress.
The wild symbol will expand to fill in the whole reel, becoming an animated version of the most iconic picture of Marilyn Monroe where she’s laughing as her skirt is blown up by the subway vent beneath her. Almost every visual in the game is dedicated to Marilyn Monroe, with game looking to have plenty of ‘zip’ about it.
The legend in the flesh
Marilyn Monroe slot features 20 paylines spread across 5 reels, with the standard symbols being the normal playing cards you’d expect from any Playtech game. There are other, higher paying symbols, including the Walk of Fame star, magazines that feature Monroe on the cover, a movie camera, and a few of her more iconic poses. Another Marilyn symbol serves as the wild symbol, with a neon Marilyn Monroe logo being the scatter.
Something’s Got to Give
The game comes packed with a scatter symbol, a wild symbol, a stacked wild, free spins, and even a backstage bonus. Play begins from just to 20p a spin and goes all the way to up to £1,000 a spin, if you’re willing to spend that much and enter the realm of the high rollers. Marilyn Monroe slot reminds us a lot of Great Blue, which is another fantastic offering from Playtech.
There’s No Business Like Show Business
The wild symbol is Marilyn herself wearing a red dress. This symbol can act as any other symbol in the game, except for the scatter, and it’ll finish a winning combination for you. When you complete a winning combination with the wild symbol, you also receive twice the amount of winnings.
The wild symbol can also be a winning combination all on its own should the right scenario play out. If you line up two wild symbols then you receive a payout for that instead of the winning combination you got with the other symbol. This is only if the payout for two wilds is higher. If you would have won more money with three of the third symbol, then you get that payout instead. Basically, you receive the payout that is highest. It should also be noted that the wild bonus is also stackable.
Some Like it Hot
If you manage to land three or more of the Marilyn Monroe logos then you unlock the bonus game. In this slot machine it’s called the Backstage Bonus. You’re taken to Marilyn’s dressing room (hubba, hubba) and given 10 free spins and a 2x multiplier for your efforts.
The mirror features five pictures of Monroe and you have to pick two of them. When you pick a picture you are given free spins, multipliers, or both. They are added to your totals. If you play your cards right you can end up with 45 free spins and a 10x multiplier.
But wait; as there’s more, these free spins can be re-triggered by getting three or more scatters. Doing so grabs you 35 extra free spins that come with the same multiplier. You can end up with 35 more spins on a 10x multiplier, which is a big boost to say the very least.
Gentleman Prefer Blondes
Marilyn Monroe slot is what is known as a high variance game, much like Great Blue, so expect there to be times when you don’t win much at all. Overall though, Marilyn Monroe slot is an evocative game that comes with a fun and rewarding bonus feature.
The betting options are a little bit limited, but you can make bets ranging from €0.20 with one payline active up to €10,000 to cover all your bases. All in all, this game proves to be a fun little tribute to cinema’s ultimate pin-up.
