Playboy Hot Zone Slots Machine
Even if named after the magazine and in spite of using the famous Playboy logo, Playboy Hot Zone has little to do with the image of Hugh Hefner’s crew that celebrates life and female beauty. Instead of looking at some of seductive blondes that had been the Playboy’s trademark (and can be found at Microgaming’s Playboy slot), you will witness loads of fruit symbols and playing card values. Apart from that, Playboy Hot Zone slots machine is an unusual game with 5 reels, 4 rows and 40 paylines.
Unfortunately, this slot is not available in any of US friendly online casinos.

You might be surprised with this game’s layout as it uses the portrait mode, imitating Vegas casino slots, without adjusting to the common online video slot layout. The reels are located at the lower part of the screen, while the upper part is pretty useless, except it indicates the bonus patterns that may or may not land on the reels. With 40 paylines being constantly active, you can wager from $0.01 all the way to $10.00 per line, which gives the total bet in range of $0.40 to $400. Solid for high limit slots fans, but might be a be too much for low-rollers.
Surprisingly, when it comes to symbols, Playboy Hot Zone turns out to be very disappointing. Namely, with so many things in a long history of Playboy, choosing a set of card values, backed by Cherries and Dollar sign for regular symbols is not something we have expected. Although you will see Hefner holding two bunnies as a regular symbol as well, this goes way below our expectations. I mean how hard it was to make some cartoons or caricatures of famous bunnies?
Playboy Hot Zone Bonus Features
The main characteristic of the game are the Hot Zone patterns dropping from above. Shaped a little bit like Tetris figures, those patterns emerge at the top of the screen and then slide down going through the reels. If they end up somewhere on the reels, they will turn all symbols within a pattern into Wilds. That is called the Hot Zone feature.
On top of that, you can earn the Free Games bonus feature. Either three Bonus or three Wild symbols anywhere on the reels will double your total bet and award 8 free spins. If you get one more of the corresponding symbols, you will be awarded 10 free spins + 5 times total bet. For either 5 Wilds or 5 Bonuses you will get 20 free spins + 10 times total bet.
The Hot Zone is the feature that makes this game interesting. You will forget everything else the moment you leave the game. The payouts stand pretty low, unless it is your lucky day and you hit the free spins with x5 or x10 multiplier. Then you can go home with a nice amount. Otherwise, you shouldn’t expect anything special from Playboy Hot Zone slots machine. It seems that Bally invested all their offers on Playboy Quick Hit slot (which is not available online) and got lazy on this one. If you wish to try your luck, you can play this slot in one of our Top Bally casinos.
