‘Georgie Porgie, pudding and pie, Kissed the girls and made them cry, When the boys came out to play, Georgie Porgie ran away’.
Above is the short nursery rhyme this MicroGaming designed slot is based on. The rhyme was written in the 19th century, but it has been given a modern makeover. You can see why Georgie makes the girls cry when kissing them, as he is certainly not the most attractive young man. He is overweight, wears an ‘I Love Pudding’ shirt and has dribble running down his chin! However, he does become more attractive when you realise he is the highest paying symbol in the game.
The highlight of this game is certainly the free spins bonus round. You have a very impressive number of spins, while a couple of additions make this feature one you should strive for.
Like many online slots today, Georgie Porgie plays out on the 5×3 reel configuration. The game has a total of 15 win lines and pays from left to right.
Georgie Porgie is the highest paying standard symbol in the game, paying 1,500 coins if matching up the maximum five in a row. Next on the pay table is a symbol showing Georgie sneaking up on an attractive girl and attempting to plant a kiss on her cheek. This symbol pays 1,250 coins. The next symbol continues the story, showing the girl crying and a friend trying to comfort her – this worth 1,000 coins. The next symbol shows the boyfriends of the two girls turning up in their sports gear and this has a top prize of 700 coins. The final standard symbol shows Georgie running away and this is worth 400 coins.
The wild symbol in the game shows the Georgie Porgie title logo. This will substitute for any other symbol in the game apart from the scatter. Each win you land using this wild will be the subject of an excellent 5x multiplier, making this a welcome wild! The good news is, this wild only gets better during the feature. This wild is also the highest paying symbol in the game, with a win amount of an impressive 7,500 coins.
Every time you win you’ll have the option of taking a gamble which is based on the turn of a playing card. Correctly predict the colour of the card and you’ll double up your win. Predict the suit of the card and the win amount will be multiplied by four. Of course, if you gamble and get it wrong, your win will be chased out of town.
The final symbol in the game is a ‘fresh mint’ mouth spray, which I guess Georgie could do with using. This is the scatter symbol in the game and will activate the free spins feature. Land three on the reels and you’ll earn 15 spins, but each additional scatter will add five to that total.
Throughout these free spins, every win you land will be multiplied by 5, which is fantastic in itself. However, it gets much better when you realise this means that any ‘wild’ wins will therefore be multiplied by 25x. If you want more good news, every time you land a scatter symbol anywhere, an additional spin will be added to the total.
The background of this nursery rhyme inspired slot is a pale blue, showing a pattern of a running boy and a series of kisses. The story of the rhyme is shown in the symbols which have a cartoon style design. This gives the game an appealing humorous feel. The title above the reels also features love hearts, although I guess these only come from Georgie. A very fitting nursey rhyme style soundtrack plays throughout, which adds to the game nicely.
Georgie Porgie is an enjoyable slot from start to finish. The mix of symbols in the game do a great job of giving the nursery rhyme a modern makeover and will add a smile to your face. The game play is good too. The 5x wild multiplier makes the base game more exciting than usual. The same can be said about the gamble option. The feature is the real highpoint however. The 5x multiplier is in place through, while the wild goes crazy with 25x wins heading your way. Georgie Porgie might be out of luck, but there is no reason why you should be too.
