Overview of The Paying Piano Club slot
Play ‘n’ Go have decided to return to the Art Deco days in the roaring 20s in this latest slot, The Paying Piano Club. The slot focuses on the music scene and is set in a venue which is aptly called the Paying Piano Club. Players can enjoy some simple gaming in this passionate establishment which is complete and offers the players win multipliers, stacked wilds, and a bonus round feature that offers unlimited free spins with multiplier enhancements.
Theme and Symbols
The Paying Piano Club looks like a cool place to hang out and have some fun. Each of the characters are either playing instruments or chilling out with a cocktail in hand. The only downside is that you do not see much of this once the slot is in play. Instead, you have the 3-reel, 5 pay line slot sitting on top of a piano, with a glass of wine on top and a cigarette smouldering in the ashtray. Admittedly this is not the most glamorous picture, but the soundtrack helps to pull the atmosphere back into play. The symbols end up on a device that is reminiscent of a piano roller style device which is rather plain although the multipliers that are shown about add a great deal of intrigue to the set up.
When it comes to the symbols the low payers are represented with some glamorous royals Jack through to Ace whilst the higher payers include drums, banjos, trumpets, and violins. In ascending order, the highest to lowest value picture symbol winning combinations are worth from 4x to 20x your stake. The wild is represented by a classy flapper image and this symbol can land anywhere to substitute for all the other symbols excluding the scatter. The wild are worth up to 20x the bet for landing three and these can also land stacked and then lead into one of the features that are on offer, we will look at these further later.
The Paying Piano Club can be played on all devices and has a wide bet range that will appear to all type of players starting from just 5p per spin up to a maximum of £100 per spin. When it comes to the volatility this slot follows most of the Play ‘n’ Go 3x3 slots sitting at a rating of 6 out of 10 which puts it well in the mid-range level. Players will have nothing to grumble about when it comes to the return to players as this has a respectable default of 96.26%, and when I tested the slot, I did find the hit frequency to be on the low side however this is what you find in most slots with the fruit styled format.
If you are au fait and have tried out other 3-reel Play ‘n’ Go, then you may find that what I cover in this part of the review is familiar. The slot does not offer much when it comes to the features, however, thanks to the relaxed limitations you can land some impressive results. There is a win multiplier that is on offer in all elements of the game. When you land the wild symbols stacked on a winning spin, there will be a multiplier selected and this is then applied to the winning amount of the activating spin.
Landing one or more wild stacked rewards you with one random multiplier and in the base game this is worth 2x, 3x, 5x, or x10.
If you land all the three band member scatter symbols you will be rewarded with an initial 5 free spins, and when the feature is underway the starting multiplier values are identical to those used in the base game. However, there is a gold coin that now comes into play. When the gold coin lands, each (if you have more than one) gold coin increases all the multipliers by +1 and then adds an additional free spin onto your total. There are no limits to the number of free spins that you can win, or how high the multiplier can get. When the free spins come to an end the multipliers are re-set to their normal values as per the base game.
The Paying Piano Club is a direct successor of earlier slots from the developers at Play ‘n’ Go slots for example Chronos Joker, which was later remodelled to become the Christmas Dickensian special Holiday Spirits. All these slots use the same 3x3, medium volatility set-up along with the multipliers providing regular wins. This is a format that has a great player following but equally does not appeal to some. I think a look at the first screenshot will see players either playing or fleeing!
One of the advantage this slot has is the rhythm that will certainly see your toes tapping, the rules are simple, and the actual gaming is well paced. If you have enjoyed previous 3-reel slots from Play’n’ Go the chances are that this slot will certainly keep you entertained. Obviously, as logic would suggest if this is a style that does not appeal the repetitive gameplay may prove too much for you to take.
Even though the features have been slimmed down when compared to some of the developer’s previous games the bonus round can be highly effective. It is not the most volatile game, and the low value wins in the base game are a terrible indicator of what you can achieve in terms of winnings thanks to the increasing multipliers and unlimited free spins. It is 5,000x the bet potentially and certainly puts the two previous slots to shame even though there are less features on offer. Alternatively, this slot can be cruel by building up huge multipliers during a lengthy bonus play, allowing you to get excited for what is to come only for the slot to run out of spins and you to receive nothing. Therefore, what seems like a guaranteed result of big wins may turn out to be far less than you expect.
When I tested the slot it certainly had an entertainment factor although for those who want instant gratification this may not be the right slot for you. I would rate the slot at 7/10 and recommend everyone to give it a spin or two.
