Enjoy some virtual pampering while you spin in Beauty Salon, a 5 reel, 20 payline slot from Pragmatic Play. This salon comes with a bonus feature that awards up to 40 free spins as well as a pick me round where instant win prizes of up to 950 coins are on offer. Play from between 20p and £100 per spin.

The design in Beauty Salon has a strong cartoon feel. A hairdresser’s shop forms the backdrop to the reels – symbols on show include bottles of perfume, hair dryers, mascara, lipstick and nail varnish. More rewarding are the quartet of women who are each enjoying a treatment.

By far the most lucrative symbol is blonde applying her lipstick – land 2, 3, 4 or 5 of her on the same payline and you’ll pocket 50, 150, 200 or 8,000 coins! Look out for the bearded stylist Fernando – he is the game’s wild and substitutes for everything apart from the bonus and scatter symbols.

Land 3 or more of the “Classy Blonde” on the same payline, starting from reel 1 and you’ll trigger the gloriously named Get Glamorous Bonus feature. This is a pick ’em round – the exact prizes depend on how many “Classy Blondes” triggered the feature:

  • 3 bonus symbols and you’ll win between 10 and 95 coins
  • 4 bonus symbols and you’ll win between 50 and 475 coins
  • 5 bonus symbols and you’ll win between 100 and 950 coins

3 or more of the “Marvellous Manicure” scatter symbols anywhere on the reels will trigger the Free Spins feature. 3 will give you 5 free spins whilst 4 gives you 10 free spins. If you get 5, you will receive 20 free spins. You can retrigger more free spins and the Get Glamorous Bonus feature from here too.

The cartoon design works well and the features come along regularly (although usually only 5 free spins). If you appreciate the theme, there’s some simple low variance entertainment to be had here and you should get plenty of play for your investment.

Beauty Salon will likely be a Marmite affair – the developers obviously have a pretty specific target audience in mind. If that sounds like you, then Fernando’s Beauty Salon is worth a visit. I do prefer other Pragmatic Play offerings with 7 Monkeys my choice.
