A glitzy slot with a cool theme and a balanced pay model that gives it a broad appeal, though perhaps lacking the high payout punch of other Play n Go slots!

About Blinged

Blinged from Play n Go was released to UK casinos in August 2020 with plenty of sparkle and attitude. This is the third in a series of hip-hop inspired slot games including Pimped and That’s Rich. This one features a female crew, apparently from downtown New York judging by the Manhattan skyline in the background. Towered over by looming skyscrapers, the action takes place across on a glimmering reel set with a backdrop of a commercial street with shops and offices all lit up and enticing you in.

It’s certainly a striking scene and a compelling introduction to the game. And as we shall see, the mix of win spins and re-spins is equally engaging and just might be your tip to join the girls in their diamond-encrusted bling-fest!

RTP and Variance 8/10

What is RTP?

RTP (Return to Player) refers to the amount a game will pay out in cash prizes expressed as a percentage of all the money wagered on that game. For example, a 96% RTP means a game will pay out £96 for every £100 wagered. This is an average number and will vary from one session to the next.  Read more here.

What is Variance?

Variance refers to how far a game will deviate from its RTP over time. High variance games deviate a lot and produce uneven win distributions and unexpected windfalls. Low variance games provide a more stable and even distribution of wins. Read more here.

The RTP for Blinged slot is 96.25% which is about average for a Play n Go game. This studio doesn’t deviate much from the industry average of 96%.

The variance in the game engine is set to medium which should give you a fairly even distribution of payouts. This is lower than the variance set for the others slots in this series which are medium-high. The top win is in keeping with this change at 5,000x. You can find bigger potential in other Play n Go slots like Ghost of Dead (10,000x) or Rich Wild and the Wandering City (10,000x) amongst others.

You can spin the reels from just 10p per play here.


Paytable 7/10

In keeping with the theme the reel set is just stacked with glimmering and shimmering jewellery and touch looking gals with hip hop moves. Here are the highlights of the paytable:

  • The game takes place on a 5×3 reel set with 10 active paylines.
  • Wins are triggered by landing 3 or more identical symbols on a payline from left to right.
  • Low payers are the cards, 10 through to Ace, valued at between 5x and 15x for five on a line.
  • Premium symbols are the four girls, bank notes, sneakers and gold rings. They are valued at a very tasty 25x to 75x.
  • Look out as well for Wilds which pay out up to 100x for five on a line.
  • Finally, there is a scatter symbol represented by the diamond. This appears only on reels 1, 3 and 5 and can trigger the special Win Spin feature, where you could win up to 5000x your bet thanks to automatic re-spins and progressive multipliers.

Gameplay & Features 7/10

The gameplay here is very straightforward. You are looking for Win Spins which trigger with the scatters and come with a progressive multiplier feature. Here is how it works:

Diamond Scatters Trigger Win Spins

The giant diamonds are the scatter symbols in this game and if you hit at least 2 of these beauties you’ll activate the Win Spin feature. This is the key to everything good in Blinged.

Landing 2 scatters activates 1 Win Spin, while 3 scatters triggers 5 Win Spins. Win Spins are free spins with GUARANTEED wins – basically the reels will keep on spinning until you hit a payout.

And …

If you land another scattered diamond during the Win Spins, you’ll re-trigger the feature re-spinning the reels up to 20 times.

And There is More … Progressive Multipliers

Every re-spin during the Win Spins feature increases the multiplier on your payout by 1x up to an unlimited value. Of course, your multiplier is always carried over into the next spin. So this is where Blinged’s potential really kicks off. You can see how some of those premium symbols like the Gold Rings could combine with a monster multiplier to get you close to that 5,000x top payout!

Our Verdict 7.2/10

Blinged is an eye-catching slot with a simple mechanic driving the gameplay. Whilst Wilds are important to sub in for others and trigger wins, as well as having their own payout value, the key to success here is the Win Spins feature. At best it can deliver a relentless surge of payouts where your multiplier keeps progressing and new wins are triggered on every re-spin. Of course,  if you don’t hit any more scatters on your Win Spin then the round ends, but your aim should be to land more scatters and keep the game progressing. A few lucky punters have hit big pay outs this way.

Keep in mind that the premium symbols have unusually high values themselves – up to 15x – so a good multiplier value AND a good payline of premiums is going to see you netting a good windfall.

With its slick artwork and nicely balanced pay model, for those who enjoy blinged-up slots like Dream Drop Diamonds (Relax Gaming) and Mega Fortune (NetEnt), this is another worthy addition to the group.
