Marilyn Monroe Slots

Marilyn-MonroeMarilyn Monroe is a name that you don’t need a history lesson on, pretty much everyone in the Western world knows about her, despite the 50+ years that have passed since she died. Playtech created this slot machine, based on an actress that was famous during the 50s, which also used to sing and model. A big sex symbol of that era, Marilyn Monroe is still an inspiration for many women today. Does the game manage to capture Marilyn’s charm? Let’s find out.

A 5 reel slot, Marilyn Monroe gets a maximum of 20 active paylines each round. Playtech is the designer behind it and the ones you can thank for the various scatter symbols, wilds and bonus games which can result in free spins with huge multipliers. Its payouts will reach a $500,000 top value.

Features of Marilyn Monroe

The stacked Marilyn wild is the best feature of the slot, but it’s not the only one. You also get the scatter symbol, free spins and big multipliers.

Marilyn Monroe is laughing in the symbol that is used as the wild, one of three symbols that uses her image in different circumstances. This one is the only one that has a feature attached, making it a symbol that can be part of any combination in the game. It can substitute for other symbols, but the best part is that it also doubles the prizes awarded with its contribution. The only symbol that it doesn’t substitute for is the scatter. The Marilyn Wild is a stacked symbol, of which you can get 1 to 3 parts on the reel. It means that with a bit of luck you can get an entire wild reel during a spin.

The Logo symbol is also important, but its role is a different one. It acts as a scattered symbol, giving you access to a bonus feature and to big cash prizes, whenever multiple Logos are on random reels (though it doesn’t hurt if they form a combo of their own). The prizes given directly by the scatter will reach 500x the round’s bet, if enough of these symbols are on the reels.

Backstage Bonus

The bonus game gets started when 3+ scattered Logos are present, the result being a feature where you can win up to 45 spins for free, with multipliers going as high as x10. That’s an impressive feature, though I wouldn’t expect it to be easy to get. If you think at the prizes offered by the scatter or the wild symbols, and then you add the multiplier of up to x10 to the mix, you can understand why this feature is so impressive.

Betting options and jackpots

The betting range is big enough to allow most people to play with it, going from just $0.01 to a value as high as $1,000 for a single spin. The line bets start at $0.01, while their highest point is at $50. Only one coin is used for each payline.

The return on your investment is about 10,000 to 1 if you get the top jackpot, as that’s how many coins the game gives you. The cash value is at $500,000, an incredible amount to win from a single spin.

Design and symbols

The game has a retro vibe to it, like it should be since it’s themed around a star of the 50s. Marilyn Monroe is visible quite often, as three different symbols have her as their image, with the rest of the images being retro looking playing cards, magazines and movie related pictures. As for the Marilyn symbols, they are made in a way that makes them resemble pin-up model pictures, also appropriate for that time period.

Symbols: Marilyn Laughing (wild, 10,000 coins), Logo (scatter, 500x round’s wager), Marilyn White Dress (750 coins), Marilyn Red Dress (750 coins), Hollywood Star (400 coins), Magazines (250 coins), Projector (250 coins), Ace (150 coins), King (150 coins), Queen (100 coins), Jack (100 coins), 10 (100 coins) and 9 (100 coins).


Is It Worth Playing?

Men can appreciate Marilyn’s beauty, while women will love her independence and her zest for life, not to mention the sex symbol status. It’s an expensive game to play, but one that can give you up to $500,000 as a reward.

Marilyn Monroe, the Sex Symbol

Marilyn Monroe was a sex symbol of the 50s and early 60s, a blonde girl that loved life and which sang, modeled and acted, making herself seen and heard by millions. She was born in 1926, on June 1st, and she died on August 5th, in 1962. People started to notice her in movies like All About Eve and The Asphalt Jungle. She often played the dumb blonde in her movies, but she was always charming and attractive even in that kind of role. She died as a result of a barbiturate overdose, while she was only 36 years old.

She is considered one of the greatest actresses, of all time, as American Film Institute called her. She is also considered one of the great sex symbols of the American cinema.
