Georgie Porgie slot from Microgaming

Georgie Porgie slot from MicrogamingGeorgy Porgy is a song (1978) by the singer-songwriter for the band Toto - David Paich. In his turn, the keyboarder David Paich borrowed the title and the verse for his soft rock song from the famous traditional children’s English nursery rhyme lyrics.

Microgaming Company developed and released in 2013 the Georgie Porgie slot machine, depicting the Georgie character - ginger, chubby, drooling, nasty, freckled, four eyes, ridiculous and deserving all the mockery jokes and bullying. But not because of how he looks. Just because of the obnoxious things he does. 

From a technical point of view, this is a game with a Medium Volatility, presented on a standard 5x3 playing field, with 15 fixed pay lines and an RTP of 95.97%. According to the developer, despite the not so generous RTP, there is a maximum win of 97500 coins for grabs (via max bet in the Free Spins).

Personal testers’ opinion

This slot has outdated graphics and unimpressive animations and sounds. Yet, we had fun with the gross and improper Georgie. During the main spins, we managed to obtain the maximum payout of 233x the bet, while during the bonus round, our average payments were in the range of 31x the bet. Utterly insufficient - we realize, but once we ascertained that the game's prize pool collects 79% of the bets for payouts in the main game and only 21% for the Free Spins, it was clear that epic wins from the bonus round are going to be super rare. All in all, the slot's paytable is decent, except for the Scatters - which brings value only when they are 2 of them (2x the bet) and no value when they are 3, 4, or 5. In the latter cases, they reward with Free Spins. 

Based on our experience, we can summarize that this slot has a shallow potential for a big win and the chance of getting 1000x+ winnings is almost nonexistent. More realistically speaking, the potential here is just 200x-400x. Negative advice for the bonus hunters on the Georgie Porgie slot machine, as the score here is only 4.40 points (out of 10) on the meter for wagering fulfillment.

Review and recommendations by the testing team

  • We know that this is one old-fashioned qua graphics and design and a very plain qua gameplay machine. The icky leading character might be revolting but should not be disregarded. The Georgie Porgie logo of the slot- acting as a Wild symbol is the highest value icon and has the ability to multiply the wins, where is substituting, with 5x - in the main game, or with 25x - in the bonus spins. Also, the image of Porgie pays 100x the bet for 5OAK, which is also pretty good. 
  • The frequency of getting any win (hit) is approximately 32%, which will say that out of 100 spins, 32 will bring some payout. Now, this is one average number, and even though the paytable is built quite properly, plus the often emerging logo icon (Wild symbol), which rewards with 5x multiplier when partakes in combinations, at a long distance, our balance was vanishing. Perhaps the low RTP was showing its ‘true colours.’ Or perhaps the combinations without Wild in them were prevailing, and they are not enough to increase, not even to sustain the balance.
  • Waiting for the Free Spins during our tests was often exhausting. Statistically, after every 147th spin should be initiated one bonus round, but in reality, sometimes you can wait for 250-300 and more spins to trigger the Free Spins with 3 mint canes. Plus, once you enter the bonus round, the Wild symbol seems to disappear, so getting high-value 4 and 5OAK (which is crucial for a 15 pay lines game) is almost impossible. This way, the Free Spins prove not to be worth the while. 
  • We saw the most money-making tactic working on the Georgie Porgie slot machine, which was using medium size bets. Our best results (above 200x in the main game and over 100x the total bet in the bonus) we obtain by playing with 7 coins on one spin.
  • You cannot influence the machine by changing the bets inside one session, so the cycle goes only more extended. But you can certainly take control of when to stop. Your game should be ending once you receive a payout combination in the range of 200-250x the stake or after a successful Free Spins round, which doubles your initial bankroll.

How to win at the Georgie Porgie slot machine? (Conclusion)

  • We are consistent with our first recommendation of playing slots at online casinos: try them in the DEMO mode before placing real money deposits.
  • Concerning bonus money wagering, we give Georgie Porgie slot negative recommendations. This regarding not keeping the balance, especially at medium and long distances.

We give, however, neutral recommendations for playing with real money. It would be best if you considered the following:

  • 1) Even though the Georgie Porgie slot machine comes with a decent paytable and Wild multiplier even in the base game, the balance is lost in most cases because of the small number of pay lines and insufficient high-value combinations the long distances. The number of dead spins and spins with small winnings dominates with a big chance to gulp the entire capital.
  • 2) Playing short distance with real money can be an option for the players, who insist on gambling here, but our suggestion is to have a sufficient starting balance of not less than 250x-300x bets.
  • 3) If you managed to double your initial bankroll, you should pause/terminate your session. Remember the low RTP of this slot machine?
  • 4) The same counts for the instances when you lose more than 20% of your initial balance. You better pause/leave this slot and return another time.
  • 5) If you will play at Georgie Porgie slot machine, better use the medium bets, and like with other machines, we advise using the Gamble function only with small payouts, not more than 2 times.
