- but why not try one of these?
Back in the early 1970s a book was written by a chap called Alex Comfort called The Joy of Sex – it was essentially an illustrated instruction manual of how to behave in the bedroom and these days the drawings all look a bit dated. The point of course is how the title of this online slot relates to that iconic book and in fact it probably doesn’t at all. But read on to find out what we think of the game.
The Joy of Six is a five reel and thirty payline slot which is actually based on dice and a casino rather than anything we mentioned in the first paragraph and Microgaming have created a colourful online slot with several notable bonus features. It’s all set against the backdrop of a green table top and casino chips.
Basic symbols are 9, 10, J, Q, K and A while the higher value ones are a stiff drink, a pile of chips and a Joy of Six chip. The scatter symbol is a croupier/dealer while the wild is a translucent red dice.
Landing three, four or five of the dealer scatter symbols will gain you entry into the free spins bonus game and you will win fifteen such spins. During this phase, if you can make a winning combo which includes the wild dice it will be worth anything up to a 6x multiplier (the face value of the dice).
The good news is that more free spins can be re-triggered within the bonus game.
In the standard game a winning combo including the wild dice will be subject to a 2x multiplier; as explained above in the bonus game the dice can be worth anything up to a 6x multiplier depending on which face is showing when the reels stop spinning.
If you’d like to gamble your most recent win just click on the ‘Double Up’ button underneath the reels; here you’ll get the chance to predict a red/black outcome (2/1) or a correct suit (4/1) outcome. You can collect your winnings at any time and you can also use the ‘Half Gamble’ button to wager just half of your win.
This is a big bold slot from Microgaming with some nice features and some casino-related sound effects – clicking chips and the like. It’s well worth a go even if you were expecting a 1970s sex instruction manual.
