Endorphina, the developer behind Taboo, chose to go with a BDSM theme here, using the hint of sex to its advantage. The graphics look modern enough and also quite appropriate for the theme.
You get a lot of black and dark brown leather, silvery letters on a black background which spell BDSM, along with logos, whips, spanking paddles, handcuffs, handcuffed hands, a choker on a woman’s neck and the stiletto shoes of the dominatrix.
It’s certainly an interesting idea that they’ve had here, and once again they show that they’re willing to innovate and try to appeal to the modern user. It’s not the first time that they do it either, previously offering titles related to vaping or twerking.
Dozens of mobile slot machines are available from Endorphina, if you like what you’re seeing in Taboo. The company is based in Czech Republic and since 2010 they’ve been releasing high quality mobile slots, about 40+ being currently available to their players. Some of their slots and the company itself have won awards, so this is no typical small developer that we’re talking about.
How To Play It
The betting will give you complete control, just like it should be in a game about BDSM. You can trigger the game with just $0.01 and see what it’s all about, and then you can increase the amount to as much as $250. For the line stake, you can use up to 10 coins, where denominations can reach $1.
5 reels of 3 symbols will get a total of 25 bet lines, but it’s up to you if you have them all active. Despite the unusual theme, it’s not as unique of an experience gameplay wise, so be prepared to hit on Spin and to enjoy the graphics, as there is nothing more for you to do.
Watch out for WILD symbols on reels 2, 3 or 4, these being capable of expanding when they land there. Their ability to act as replacements for other symbols will still be there, and as usual you don’t get it for bonus symbols, but surprisingly enough you do for the scatter. A wild gives you the equivalent of only one scatter when it appears and covers an entire reel.
The scatter symbol that I’m talking about will feature an image with the dominatrix’s stiletto shoes. Have this symbol appear multiple times in view, and rewards of $12,500 are possible thanks to it.
As for the Bonus, it shows as its image a circle with white, black and red dots in it. The symbol, when it appears three times on the reels 3, 4 and 5, will activate the Triskele Wheel Game. Wins of up to 25x are possible, and if you’re not satisfied with the one that you get, there are up to three attempts available to try and change that. Getting the Bonus section of the wheel will take you to the room of the dominatrix, in the Red Room Bonus.
Red Room Bonus has five levels and it’s a picking game where you select objects. You either advance to another level or you stop when you get the message.
The regular part of the game will offer a jackpot of $100,000, which is a very good reward and one that anyone would love to go after.
The theme might raise some eyebrows and get the attention of a lot of players, the graphics will probably be enjoyable for most, while features I’d say that are only average.
