A slot based on a former Playboy model turned reality TV star doesn’t immediately sound like fine source material for quality online casino fare. An Evening With Holly Madison comes as something of a surprise then as it’s not just a looker but offers some impressive features too. Look out for expanding wilds, re-spins, free spins and jackpots of 3,500 times your bet. Stakes range from 30p up to £60 per spin.

An Evening With Holly Madison has a glamorous, luxury theme – the reels include high heels, masks from a masked balled and a swanky soft top sports car. The ace and queen of hearts are the top payers from the standard symbols, offering 2,000 coins if you find 5 in a row.

Holly herself is the wild and appears on reels 2, 3 and 4, substituting for all other symbols apart from the scatter. She can appear as a stacked wild on those three middle reels, filling up the entire reels and offering plenty of opportunities to secure a bumper score.

The Holly logo is the game’s scatter – finding just 2 scatters will get you a payout of 25 coins as well as a re-spin. Three scatters pays 50 coins, four offers 125 while five will give you 1,250. You’ll also trigger the Free Games feature and be awarded 10 free spins.

During the feature, the lipstick kiss symbol appears on reel 5 – collect kisses to enter the Photoshoot Bonus. For every kiss collected, Holly will change into a new outfit. If she likes it, you’ll win the same amount you won during the free spins. Obviously, if you get a good number of kisses you can give your winnings a real boost.

An Evening With Holly Madison is a surprisingly entertaining slot – the visuals are slightly more understated than you’d expect given the subject matter and the backing track has a classy big band feel.

The free spins feature is a good one, especially given the Photoshoot extras. Throw in the expanding wilds and scatter re-spins and it all adds up to a very entertaining slot. It’s one that comes with a warning though as the variance is high. You can quickly fly through your bankroll if you’re not careful.

If you have the funds to cope with the volatility then there’s plenty to enjoy during An Evening With Holly Madison. If you like high variance games, there’s not better NextGen Gaming slot than 300 Shields which has become a cult favourite. If you like female themed slots, Marilyn Monroe by Playtech is very good and often overlooked.
