Playboy Hot Zone is a popular video slot game produced by Bally Technologies, one of the leading companies in casino entertainment. The theme of this game has to do with the international Playboy brand created by Hugh Hefner and the charismatic lifestyle he lives.
In the game, players are invited into the exclusive Playboy mansion where they will get a taste of the good life and meet the Playboy bunnies. The backdrop to the game is an image of a Playboy nightclub advertising nightly shows in bright flashing lights. The graphics, animation and sound effects are all top-quality, providing a slot experience that is both entertaining and rewarding at the same time.
5 reels and 40 paylines
The slot machine in Playboy Hot Zone is based on the classic slot setup of 5 reels and 40 paylines. The game itself is packed with bonus features including wild symbols, wild substitutions, scatter symbols and of course the Hot Zone feature. On the reels, players will find all things related to a Playboy lifestyle including images of Hugh and the Bunnies, dollar signs and martinis. The standard high card symbols are used as the lower paying symbols in the game. The symbols themselves are stylised to blend into the theme of the game.
Hot Zone Feature
One of the biggest draw cards of the Playboy Hot Zone slot game is of course the Hot Zone feature. In this game, the Hot Zone wild patterns spin in addition to the base game and free spin game. At the end of ever spin, the Hot Zone patterns stop falling and can land on any position from reel 1 to 5. Any of the symbols that have been covered by the Hot Zone will then turn into wild symbols in order to create more winning opportunities.
Wild/Bonus Combination Symbols
The wild symbol in Playboy Hot Zone is the Playboy Bunny logo with the word “Wild” written across the front. In this game, the wild symbol can substitute for any of the other standard symbols in order to create a winning combination including the bonus symbol. During the base game if a Hot Zone lands on the Bonus symbol the bonus symbol becomes a wild/bonus combination symbol. The combination symbol will then behave like a wild or a bonus symbol depending on the combination that will pay out the most.
Playboy Free Spin Bonus Round
The bonus symbol in the Playboy Hot Zone slot game is simply the symbol with the word “Bonus” written across the front. The bonus symbol is the key to activating the free spin bonus round. To trigger the bonus round players must land 3 or more bonus symbols across the reels. The wild/bonus combination symbols can also be used to trigger the bonus round. The free spin feature awards free spins and multipliers in relation to the number of bonus or bonus/wild symbols landed. 3 bonus symbols across the reels awards players with 8 free spins with a 2x multiplier. 4 bonus symbols across the reels will award players with 10 free games with a 5x multiplier. All 5 bonus symbols across the reels will award players with the maximum 20 free spins with a 10x multiplier.
