Platinum is the most precious of metals and it costs more per ounce than gold and silver. As such it is often used as the benchmark for excellence and high achievement.
It is unsurprising therefore that Microgaming have opted for the metal to be the focus of the outstanding slot Pure Platinum.
On the face of it, Pure Platinum is a typical mobile slot game. It is a 5x3 reel game that offers a total of 40 paylines on every spin. Paylines cannot be selected so you can get the reels spinning from as little as 0.40 per spin, up to a maximum of 400 coins per spin, depending on the size of the coins you select and the number of coins wagered on each line.
The first thing to note is that the high symbols are all Platinum based objects ranging from rings and watches, through to bars and tablets. The low symbols are the usual card symbols, but they too are designed to look as if they are made from platinum, though they are placed on different coloured backgrounds for ease of differentiation.
The game features the usual Wild and Scatter symbols each of which can be used to significantly enhance the prospects of the player to achieve a payout on a given payline.
The in-game Wild is the Pure Platinum logo, which can be used to substitute for any of the symbols across the reels, except the Scatter symbol, in order to produce a winning payline. The more of these Wild symbols you land on a single payline on a given spin, the more chances you have of hitting one or more winning combinations.
What really helps rack up the wins on multiple paylines is the fact that the Platinum Wild is stacked across the reels, which means that if you can hit a full stack of three across one reel or more, you have a good chance of hitting a winning combination across multiple paylines.
The in game Scatter symbol is the Platinum Record symbol and you need to land three, four or five of these across any of the reels in order to trigger the Free Spins feature.
What is different about the Pure Platinum Free Spins option is that players can select from 10 Free Spins with a 5x multiplier, 25 Free Spins with a 2x multiplier and 50 free spins with a 1x multiplier as their bonus. Choose wisely as the right selection could see you earn considerably more.
One important thing to note is that you can't re-trigger free spins during the free spins round.
Any time you have achieved a win on Pure Platinum via your smartphone then you can opt to gamble your winnings to try and increase them, or keep them as they are. The Gamble option is a simple prediction game where the player has to select the correct colour of the next card selected from a pack (in order to double their win) or the correct suit of card selected from the pack (in order to quadruple their win). Guess wrong however and you lose your winnings.
Perhaps the one disappointing aspect for a game like Pure Platinum is the fact that the game only offers a relatively modest jackpot of 1,000 coins, with a second jackpot available of 750 coins. With a name like Pure Platinum and the opulent feel to the game, you would expect the jackpots to be a little higher.
That said, Pure Platinum is a game you can really enjoy from your mobile, it is easy to play, you win relatively frequently and accessing all the features from your smartphone or tablet is very simple. It also looks fantastic on high quality screens.
Pure Platinum is a solid choice for anyone who enjoys regular wins and relatively low priced slot gaming from their mobile.
