Marilyn Monroe Slot Review
Marilyn Monroe is a 5 reel, 20 payline created by Playtech. The theme must be familiar to anyone as the Hollywood actress who died some fifty years ago is still considered today a sex symbol – in the game you will see popular pictures of the famous actress. The wild symbol, when it expands to the whole reel, becomes an animation of the famous picture of Marilyn Monroe, laughing as her skirt is blown up by the blast from a subway vent.
The game features a scatter symbol, a wild symbol, a stacked wild, a free spin feature and a backstage bonus feature. You can play from as little as 20p a spin to as much as £1,000 a spin in some of our recommended Playtech casinos. The game is very similar to the cult favourite Great Blue which is great as that’s one of my favourite Playtech slots.
Marilyn wearing a red dress is a wild symbol which can replace any other symbol, except for the scatter, to complete winning combinations. When completing a winning combination, the wild symbol doubles the payout for that win. The wild symbol can also create a winning combination on its own.
If 2 or more wild symbols are found on an active payline, this combination is paid out instead of the regular symbol win only if the wild combination is more profitable. In all cases where there are 2 wins on an active payline the highest paying one is always given. The wild symbol can also be stacked to increase your winning, it can occupy 2 rows or the entire reel.
If 3 or more Marilyn Monroe logo symbols appear simultaneously anywhere on the reels during the main game, the Backstage Bonus feature is triggered. You start in Marilyn Monroe’s dressing room with 10 free spins and a 2x multiplier. On the mirror there are 5 pictures of the actress where you must pick two.
These pictures will reveal free spins and/or multipliers that will increase your totals. You could end up with a total of 45 free spins with a 10x multiplier. There is more! Free spins can be re-triggered by get 3 or more scatters which will give you 35 additional free spins with the same multiplier the spins were won with. Could you imagine an additional 35 free spins with a 10x multiplier?
Marilyn Monroe slot is definitely fun to play and it can give out huge wins if you’re lucky. It’s a high variance game (like Great Blue) so expect plenty of dry spells. I have had my best returns in the free spins feature but more often than not, I tend to win between 20-30 times my stake. Saying that, I have won over 600 times my stake before.
