PURE PLATINUM REVIEW
Game Pure Platinum
Pure Platinum is a glossy new video slots game from Microgaming with a futuristic vibe to it. It's a 40 payline machine consisting of 3 lines and 5 reels. This low volatility slot has a high payrate of nearly 97%, and the wins come fast and furious, which is perhaps why the maximum bet is limited to a rather paltry $20 in coins.
The symbols all have the same metallic sheen, with images of sparkling jewelry and chunks of platinum, as well as glossy number and face card values from 9 to ace. The spinning reel graphics are some of the best yet, providing a very clear look at the spinning images and even allowing you to mildly anticipate what will come in each reel, rather than being a blur of indistinguishable symbols. The overall look, including starry sky background is one that players will either love or hate; some tend to find the austere look cold, while others love the futuristic angle. The music does a nice job of feeling appropriate while also being pleasant enough for playing short sessions too. However like many slots machines it loops very quickly and will probably begin to grate on the nerves very quickly.
The main symbols to watch for are the Pure Platinum logo, which acts as the wild, and frequently appears stacked in reels to create more winning opportunities. The scatter symbol is a platinum disc with the word scatter on it, and 3 of these on a payline unlock the free spins bonus mode for you; 3-5 scatters also provide a great prize in and of themselves, multiplying your wager by up to 100X. In the three-tiered bonus mode, your wins are further multiplied by as much as 5X on the last tier, giving a potential 500X win in that mode. The free spins mode also busts out some nice new graphical effects like the pouring of molten lava into the free spins pot.
Lastly, Pure Platinum contains a gamble feature allowing you to try and double or even quadruple any winning hand by guessing the color or suit, respectively, of a randomly chosen card. With the machine's high win rate, it creates many opportunities for the daring player to maximize their winning combinations.
Pure Platinum has more of a unique vibe going for it than many other slots machines. The rich look compels you to strike it rich yourself, and the many wins and opportunities for gambling give the game plenty of variety and life. Pure Platinum is available for mobile devices via flash play, and makes for great slots gaming at home or on the go.
