Dozens of slots in the Microgaming range have used money and wealth as their centrepieces, but we have to say that we have rarely seen a mobile slot being quite as subtle about it as Pure Platinum. Indeed, it almost feels like the game is trying to make players believe that the use of platinum as theme was a design choice. However, we don’t know about anyone else but as far as we’re concerned, the first thing that comes to mind when we think of platinum is the value! It does at least make a nice change from gold being the driving precious metal – there are dozens of golden slots out there but no other platinum ones come to mind. This game is every bit as solid as players will have come to expect from Microgaming, especially in their mobile range, and while it is not exactly innovative, it can offer up an extremely decent gaming session.
What to Expect
The look and feel of this game is actually rather striking, and we mean that in a good way. In one of the rarest occurrences in the history of slots reviews here at MobileCasino.net, we even like the playing card icons, which are bigger and blockier than any that we have seen before. The other symbols all make liberal use of the precious metal of choice on the board and it is easy enough to put them together for wins. While there are only the conventional three rows on the board, there are forty win lines working with them and that ensures that prize awards come thick and fast here on Pure Platinum. The Pure Platinum logo is the wild card too, and the fact that it can land in full stacks also helps the base game along massively.
In something of a throwback to classic Microgaming slots of yesteryear, this one brings back the gamble game. It becomes available whenever a win lands and gives players the opportunity to guess the colour of the next card drawn in order to double their prize, or they can alternatively guess the suit for more risk but better rewards, with your prize being quadrupled if you are correct.
A cheeky nod from the gamble game is nice, but it would not hold water as a main feature on any modern mobile slot, so we were pleased to see the inclusion of free spins too. Land three or more at once and a choice of bonus rounds will present itself. You could go with ten spins with a five times multiplier, 25 spins where prizes are doubled or fifty spins straight up with no multiplier at all. We like choice, and we also like the fact that if we are in the mood for an extended free spins session that we can make use of fifty of them just for landing three scatters.
The MobileCasino.net Verdict
There is nothing particularly fresh or new going on here on Pure Platinum, but the game is solid enough for what it is. The graphics are decent and unlike anything that we have really seen before, and we must commend Microgaming for serving up the potential for so many free spins. It is a basic offering, but as is often the case with slots from this developer, it all just works. It will not hold your attention forever or go on to be one of the all-time greats of the mobile range, but it is definitely solid and enjoyable for a few spins every now and again.
