IGT’s Sex in the City slot has been out for awhile, but it’s one of the multi-play games so I stayed away. I like to play more than one credit per line, but you have to play all four games before you can play two per line with a 20-cent per line credit side bet (50 cents), and then it’s on all four games ($2). The max play is 3x per line or $6; a little rich for me. After a couple of big hits I did try playing two games ($1) and did hit my first bonus on the second game, but then I went right back to one game.
However, my curiosity got the better of me, so I played just one game at one credit per line, plus the side bet (50 cents). IGT claims the bonus hit frequency is approximately 1-in-25 plays.
I really liked the game and got some “big hits” (five-of-a-kind of the bigger pay symbols) that caused the words BIG HIT to jump out of the screen, complete with bells, whistles and screen clips of the character from the show who just paid. I also got into the bonus twice.
When you get three pink, sparkly hearts you are ready for the chance at five progressive jackpots and four bonus games.
You spin the virtual wheel at the top of the machine to pick your bonus or your chance at one of the progressives. With each bonus game you get to watch video clips, like “Hello, lover!” from the HBO series. Plus, Mr. Big himself talks you through the bonus games, cheers you on and congratulates you on your wins.
The bonus games include: Simply Fabulous!, Progressive Pick, Perfect Present, Hello, Lover!, and Change of Dress.
With the Simply Fabulous! bonus, players select from several jewelry boxes that, when put together, reveal the total award.
Perfect Present is a free game bonus that triggers up to 15 gift boxes to appear on the screen.
During the Change of Dress bonus you get to choose your favorite character from the show and change her outfit while collecting big prizes along the way.
With Hello, Lover! bonus you choose a shoe box to pick a shoe symbol. During the five free spins the symbol locks throughout the proceedings and increases your chance of winning.
I got into the progressive with Miranda and won $27.34, then got the Hello, Lover! bonus and won $17.57.
I played through my $20 since I was ahead, and I never went below $10. I cashed out with $57.13
