Pimped is a five-reel slot with three rows and up to 10 paylines. The characters in this story reside in some kind of penthouse apartment with skyline views of a city at night. The hip-hop theme has rarely been touched on in the realm of online slots but Pimped dares to venture into that realm and adds a celebrity to its execution with the biggest paying symbol looking a lot like Snoop Dog.
The symbols are the trappings of wealth, with a roll of dollar bills, ring and gold dollar sign all featuring. There is a “win spins” feature, which is where the bigger wins in this game can be had.
One unmistakable thing that you’ll notice in Pimped is the multi-layered soundtrack. You will hear deep bass notes, synth tunes on top and the cheers and chatter of a crowd in the background. This is really well-produced, going quieter between spins and then coming back to life when play gets going. Graphics are very crisp, from the glitzy symbols to the animations. On the feature round, you’ll be playing against the animation of a “rain” of dollars.
Before you can start exploring the riches of the hip-hop world, you should adjust your wager first. Clicking on “Coin Value” regulates the coin size, which ranges from 0.01 to 2. Clicking the -/+ buttons that surround “Coins” changes the number of coins to bet and “Lines” picks the number of active paylines. Pressing “Bet Max” will choose the highest possible bet. While “Spin” starts the game, “Auto Play” spins the reels a number of pre-determined times without any pause.
In all, this is an excellent and solid game that players should definitely get their hands on. It is not the most feature-rich of games, only having the single win spins bonus round. However, it makes up for this by having a very slick theme, with both graphics and the background music collaborating well to create a unique atmosphere.
There are five high-value symbols including a roll of cash, a ridiculously expensive but unsightly gold watch, a couple of scantily clad girls and two gentlemen from this tale, one of whom is a ringer for Huggy Bear from the classic TV series “Starsky and Hutch.” Gleaming, metallic 10, J, Q, K and A make up the lower values.
The wild symbol is signified by the letters “Wild” formed into one of those rings which covers all one’s fingers. It can appear stacked on all reels. A glittering blue and gold dollar sign is the scatter symbol that activates the main feature.
Pimped includes just one bonus feature and it’s triggered by landing three or more of the dollar scatter symbols anywhere in view. You will next receive five free spins but each one guarantees a win. Each time you land another scatter symbol during this feature, you will be awarded two extra spins up to a maximum of twenty. There are no extra multipliers for the wins you land here.
After each win, you can choose to click the “Gamble” button under the reels. Then, you can try and double or quadruple that win by guessing the color or suit of the next card drawn. Five correct guesses or 2,500 coins is the win limit.
