Become Gambler launches a new series on game providers. Today, we will talk about Play’n GO, one of the most famous slot machines and casino games studio.
Play’n GO: the origins
Play’n GO is a Swedish company that was founded in 1997. At that time, the online casino industry was nothing compared to what it is today. It’s in 2004 that it stopped being a subsidiary of other software providers. It is also when it began its journey to become the game provider we know today.
As we write these lines, Play’n GO has released a total of 178 games, from various categories: slot machines, card and table games, bingo, scratch cards, video poker. Its games are available to be played in more than 30 languages, and are fully compatible with mobile devices (smartphones, tablets).
Some of this providers slot machines became really famous and played a big part in its reputation. Among these slot machines are Book of Dead (released January 14th of 2016), Moon Princess (July 1st of 2017), Reactoonz (Octobre 24th of 2017), Tome of Madness (June 27th of 2019), and Legacy of Dead (January 2nd of 2020).

Our 5 favourite Play’n GO slot machines
With a games library of almost 200 slot machines, it can be hard for players to try them all. As we tried most of this provider’s games, we we will give you our top 5 (top 8 in reality) of our favourite Play’n GO slot machines.
#1 – Tome of Madness
Released in June of 2019, Rich Wilde and the Tome of Madness is our favourite Play’n GO slot machine. With it’s 5×5 grid, it’s high volatility and a 2000x total bet potential max win, this slot will please you for sure. Enter the pre bonus phase and hope to unlock the Cthulhu for amazing wins. Try it, you will be hooked to this game!
#2 – Honey Rush
Let’s continue with another unusual slot machine: Honey Rush. It features a 37 symbols hexagonal grid board that looks like a bee hive (hence its name). Once a cluster of 5 symbols is formed, it will connect and disappear, and new symbols will enter the top of the screen. Your goal is to fill the Rush Meter. Every time you fill it, you unlock a Honeypot with a x1, x2 or x3 multiplier. Get to the final level and unlock the Queen Colony Feature, that creates a cluster of at least 20 symbols.
#3 – Legacy of Dead / Rise of Merlin
The two next slot machines are among the most played of this game provider: Legacy of Dead and Rise of Merlin. We decided to group these two slots because although they look different, they share the same mechanics. On these two slot machines, when you get a retrigger during the free spins you don’t only get additional free spins but also an additional special symbol. If you get lucky enough you can unlock all 10 symbols, and get more than 64 free spins.
#4 – Reactoonz / Reactoonz 2
These two games that are pretty similar to a few exceptions feature a grid board populated with little extraterrestrials beings. Just like on Honey Rush, form clusters of at least 5 symbols to make them connect, unlocking special features on your way to the much coveted Reactoonz. The Reactoonz is an enormous alien that can bring crazy wins when connecting with premium symbols. On Reactoonz 2, the final alien can get a 2x multiplier for even crazier wins.
#5 – Rise of Olympus / Moon Princess
Last but not least come two slots that we adore here on Become Gambler. Rise of Olympus and Moon Princess are the exact same slot machines, but with different design. Moon Princess will remind you of Sailor Moon, while Rise of Olympus is themed around the greek gods Hades, Poseidon and Zeus. On both of these games, clusters of 3 symbols connect. Your goal is to get into the pre-bonus phase where you have to clear the whole board to enter the bonus round.
