There has been a lot of experimenting with what will and what won’t work in the field of slot games. Casino software producers always attempt to make a step further than the competition and stand out of the crowd with some sort of novelty. Some lived up to the expectations, others didn’t. However, variety of something never hurt anyone. Marilyn designed and deliver by B3W Group is a great example of this sort of experimenting. At first, it seems simple and without any involvement of the player, but once you give it a try you realize the gameplay is different than with regular classic slots and by far from the modern video slots. Some players will find this entertaining and this approach more convenient. And who other can be featured in this kind of a slot if not the super famous Marilyn Monroe.
Marilyn is a 3 reel slot with only 1 payline. You don’t have any options in terms of changing the value of the coin. The value of the coin is fixed to 0.25. However, you can place 1 or 2 coins per line, which is in fact the overall bet. There is no autoplay feature because of the way you are supposed to play the game. In a way it can resemble to a Video Poker, without the cards.
There are no moving objects except the 3 spinning reels, but this movement is animated perfectly with smooth and crispy clear transitions. Other than this everything is fixed and acts as a background. You can see the complete paytable in the upper left corner. Fortunately, there is at least a Wild Symbol that will act as a substitute for any winning symbol. Hitting 3 Wilds will bring you the jackpot of 1000 coins. There are no free spins, multipliers, scatters nor bonus games. It’s plain simple, too simple to satisfy any player’s taste.
Similar to Video Poker if you decide to go with the BET 2 feature you will be allowed to stop or in other words HOLD the reels you prefer and have the remaining reels respin. For example if you hit a wild you can keep that reel fixed and do another respin. This way you increase your chances of winning by a huge margin.
In simple words, the slot Marilyn is too weird to be accepted by the wider player base. It’s too elementary even for a classic slot. The respin feature maybe makes up for most of it and keeps its place safe in many online casinos. Bottom line is, you should at least try it out to experience what it feels like to have a mix of 2 different casino games. If you like the idea go for it, keep pushing that BET 2 button and respin!
