Bikini Party, one of the games that Microgaming has created recently, was launched in early 2016 and it is the kind of game that will probably appeal to men mostly. The reason is the theme, which includes five attractive girls in skimpy bikinis, playing volleyball on the beach and posing in different ways for the camera. There are even a couple of very cool features to consider when you’re playing this game. The slot is the kind that replaces the paylines with 243 ways to win, and it can offer a payout of $60,000.
Betting & Jackpots
The decisions which are left up to the player allow him to decide on the number of coins per line and on their value. The virtual lines are fixed at 25, the number being considered sufficient, to activate the ways to win that are available. You can select up to 10 coins in each case, with the denomination range being from $0.01 to $0.50. A line bet of $5 will turn into a maximum bet of $125 here.
The rewards in Bikini Party seem to go up to $20,000 with the help of one of the girls in bikinis, but if you get the prize during free spins, it will triple to $60,000.
As a very simple wild, we get the Bikini Party Logo, the symbol which is going to come in handy from time to time, being a substitute for others, as long as it lands in the spot where it is needed to appear. The other symbols of the combo have to be there as well, the wild can’t do it all by itself. Wilds only appear on reels 2 and 4.
A scatter is naturally present on the reels as well, a Volleyball image, with the net behind it. This one pays 1x to 100x the wager when it’s on the reels enough times (2 to 5 symbols), and it can trigger 15 free spins when there are 3+ scatters present. The wins from the free spins all get tripled, and the great thing is that the jackpot is also affected. Retriggering free spins is another possibility, if you have the necessary scatters present again.
A Respin feature, which Microgaming has introduced in quite a few of its games lately, lets you try your luck, by choosing which reels you want a respin for. You pick the reel you want to respin, you click on the button at the bottom, and after you pay the required price the symbols will change. Hopefully, the symbols are now the ones you need to form a better combo. That’s the way to pick the reel to respin, based on what combinations can be improved if the right symbols come along on that reel.
The design could’ve been great, and some of the symbols look very attractive, meaning the ones with girls on them and the others which are at least partially themed. The big downside is the use of poker cards, all of them very boring and identical to the ones you’d expect from many other slots that have them.
Expect a fun game all things considered, and with mostly pros to its name. There are good features, payouts and graphics, but that last one has a few bad apples as well.
