Microgaming recently announced the release of the Multi-player version of its popular Playboy Slot and that it will run a network-wide competition to celebrate at casinos like Betway in the month of November.
The company entered into a licensing agreement with Playboy in February of 2013 and launched the Playboy Branded Live Dealer studio, which was a world first. Six months later they followed the launch up with the release of the Playboy online slot that caused a stir amongst fans and fast became a player favourite with its sexy graphics and potential for generous rewards.
The only thing that was lacking was the ability to use the slot for multi-player games and slots tournaments, which Microgaming is now addressing by adding the multi-player version to its extensive games portfolio, not only extending the games reach but also opening the iconic Playboy brand up to an entirely new group of players.
The new multi-player version is based on the existing Play Slot with its sexy characters, stylish animation and fitting soundtrack but has been adapted to a 5×3 reel, 20 fixed payline multi-player game that can accommodate up to 5 other players, allowing them to play the same game while enjoying social elements like in-game chat functionality.
In addition, the Multi-player Playboy slot also features a bonus thermometer which when kept active in the base game, gives players VIP access to the exciting and exclusive free spins feature and the opportunity to earn even more rewards.
Microgaming’s Multi-player Games Product Manager James Ford commented that Playboy is one of the most renown global brands and has a massive 97% unaided worldwide brand awareness, so to be able to bring this iconic brand to the slots arena and in multi-player format is very exciting.
Playboy’s President of Global Licensing, Matt Nordby echoed these sentiments, commenting that Playboy values its partnership with the software giant and is delighted to be able to build off the success off the Playboy themed Live Dealer suite and online slot to further enhance the brand’s offering in the online casino sphere.
Along with the launch in November, Microgaming powered properties like Betway Casino will offer players on the multi-player network the chance to win one of five one year memberships to the Playboy Club in London. Now that’s something worth playing for! Watch this space for more details when the promotion is live!
