Taboo Slot Machine
Taboo is not a game for the faint of heart, Endorphina going for the risqué approach in its case, so they ended up offering a sexy theme, one with dominatrix and with various sex games hinted at in its symbols. You’re going to love the graphics of the game right away, but let’s see what else it has to offer, shall we?
First of all, you’re going to have as many as 25 active lines for each round of Taboo that you will trigger. The game gives you potential prizes that are designed to impress, reaching even a value of $100,000 in some cases. Moving on to features, you will discover symbols that act as scatters, bonus triggers, expanding wilds and the Triskele Wheel Game.
Betting and Prizes
Endorphina has a certain way of doing things when they let you set up your wager, and even though they allow for every component of the bet to be modified, the way they display those options makes them difficult to figure out for a first-time player, as it’s not immediately apparent that they’re options that can be changed. You have 1 to 25 active pay lines, 1 to 10 coins usable per line, with denominations of $0.01 to $1 selectable. You spend between $0.01 and $250 per spin, to get the reels to start moving.
If you’ve wagered the most that the game allows, then the right combo of symbols will deliver a jackpot of $100,000. The RTP that’s announced for the slot is 96%, so it’s a good game to be playing if you’re into its theme.
Taboo Slot Features
Wild symbols which have the ability to expand on the reels they land on are not new to the industry, they’ve been included in slot machines for quite some time now. You will find them on the middle reels, meaning on the columns 2, 3 and 4. When they land there, they expand and they can substitute for regular and scatter symbols, but not for bonus symbols.
Scatters are used in the game only as triggers for special prizes, at least if we look at the symbol with the woman’s shoes as its image. Payouts of 50x total bet are not impressive, but they are offered in exchange for symbols that are not arranged in any particular way, and wilds do help out in delivering them, so I shouldn’t complain about the lack of features from this one.
Finally, we arrive to the bonus symbol, which is also a scatter, and which triggers a feature called Triskele Wheel Game, whenever you have three on the last three reels. The Wheel spins and then gives you a value, which varies from 10x to 25x, and that’s going to be a multiplier for your total bet. You get three choices, so you can reject the first couple of wins if you’re not happy with them.
Another potential outcome of this Wheel is going to be a picking game with 5 levels, called Red Room Bonus.
Theme & Design
Taboo is a game that should be a lot of fun these days, particularly for those that are also fans of movies like 50 Shades of Grey. It seems to involve a lot of leather, whips, spanking paddles, handcuffs, as well as a woman that’s tied down and wears a chain attached to her choker. It’s a provocative slot machine, particularly for this industry, but Endorphina has a long history of doing that, also being the developer behind slots like Twerk or Diamond Vapor.
Taboo has a unique theme that is a bit controversial as well, for some people at least, along with high-end graphics and a nice mix of features. Add the good RTP to the mix, and you get a great slot machine to try out.
