Pure Platinum slot from Microgaming

Pure Platinum slot from Microgaming
Gold and silver are so overrated. In 2009 Microgaming decided Platinum also needed some attention, so they dedicated Pure Platinum slot machine to this noble metal and even though it’s a classic now (one might consider it retro), this slot hasn’t lost its shine yet.

All the elements for pure online slot excitement are implemented in the gameplay: Stacked Wilds, Scatters, and 3 types of Free Spins. The reels cannot be described as heavy (metal), nor like toxic (metal). They exhibit a valid precious metal action on a standard 5x3 grid, crossed by 40 win lines and with a max win of 200 000 coins (for a full screen of Wilds in the Free Spins with multiplier x5, via max bet of 40 CAD). So, you can buy yourself some solid platinum bars. The shiny symbols are stylishly rendered, oozing luxury and promising a life of richness. The metallic sound effects are truly retro and as soon as you hit the Free Spins you are presented with a kitsch mix between disco and Cossack dance.

With Medium Volatility and lofty return - 96.49%, Pure Platinum slot machine is a good choice if you are looking for some advantageous old online game, where all that glitters is platinum. Check it out for free (DEMO type) on our page. No mandatory registration.

Personal testers’ opinion

  • Compared to newer games, the visuals are not really up to par anymore. At the same time, there are newer games that have much worse graphics. The sound effects are also kind of silly until you hit the Free Spins when you finally understand they are not meant seriously - but just lampooning. Statistically, the bonus round comes around every 138th spin, but the good news is that oftentimes appears in series. So if you had a mediocre payment in one of these rounds don't leave the slot just yet. The next, with a presumably higher price tag, will be coming very soon.
  • OK, the game is outdated. And surely reminds of many other 40-liners from this or other developers. But what is here incontestable, that is the game generosity. You cannot say this for many of those similar slots. Pure Platinum paid well to almost all of our test team sessions. Even if the paytable is not that lavish - the Scatters are valued with the usual 100x the total bet; the Wilds pay 25x the total bet for 5OAK, and all the remaining 10 symbols pay from 18.75 to 1.25x the total bet all for 5OAK, still, by some means, the math model works profitably. Multiple times we have reached over 300x the bet via the highest multiplier in the Free Spins but admittedly, our average win in the bonus mode was 33x the bet.
  • The low-rollers will like the achievements with minimum stakes here. The high-rollers will like the max prospect of 5000x the total bet and the medium risk applicable to the action with high stakes. But the bonus hunters will be discontented playing here. We believe the game is not capable of preserving a levelled balance in average length sessions and the wagering index scored here was only 4.76 (out of 10).
