This old english nursery rhyme gets a modern twist as we go back to school with the Georgie Porgie mobile slot.
Microgaming have created a whole series of slot machines based on old popular nursery rhymes. This Georgie Porgie slot is the first to make it to mobile and tablets.
For those of you who didn’t have your parents sing you non-sensical songs that are centuries old and no longer make any sense, this little tale is one of woe and sorrow for one unfortunate wallflower:
Georgie Porgie, Puddin’ and Pie,
Kissed the girls and made them cry,
When the boys came out to play
Georgie Porgie ran away.
Before you accuse us of reading too much into this theme (we’re pretty sure girls crying to our kisses happens to everyone… right? yes?), our dislike for the Georgie Porgie slot theme is actually because it’s fairly lazy.
The graphics are simple, though the sounds are a little more interesting, and it’s hard to get into the story.
Especially as, in Microgaming’s own words, this is about:
“The rhyme has a rather unattractive school dweeb kissing the girls whilst they are distracted by a tasty pudding, making them weep….but when the hefty jocks from the football team come out to play, we all know what happened….our overweight and sly kisser ran away!”
We can’t emphasis enough how un-inspiring, un-amusing, and un-necessary this rhyming reels slot theme is, unless you’re 5 years old and still think that you can catch cooties.
Because if there is one thing that this slots provider does well, is create machines that pay and play well – on Android, iPad, iPhone or desktop.
And better yet, the Georgie Porgie slot game, because it only has 15 pay lines over the 5 reels, has a friendly betting range of 0.15 to 15 a spin.
So if you want big hit, without betting the moon and back, Georgie Porgie is actually not a bad choice. Those of you who’ve played on video slots like Thunderstruck or the Agent Jane Blonde slot and want to upgrade, should consider this mobile game.
Mostly because the wild comes with a 5x multiplier as standard, which has let us to winning 140 times our bet in the base game alone.
During the free spins, which are not as hard to catch as you might think, all wins come with a 5x multiplier, and then the this Microgaming video slot will make you smile from ear to ear.
Because of the 5x multiplier during the free spins, the wild symbol suddenly increases to a 25x multiplier if used to replace any wins.
Mostly that means you’ll get several 3 of a kind wins, and walk away with maybe 30x to 50x your bet.
On an amazing round, we’ve calculated the top amount you can win here as 6,500 times your bet.
It makes you suddenly realise that all the cool kids can keep their puddings and football. We want to be friends with the overweight Georgie Porgie. He hold all the golden pies.

Wilds: The Georgie Porgie slot logo is wild and substitutes for all other symbols on the reels except scatter.
It comes with a 5x multiplier on the base game, and a 25 multiplier during the free spins.
Scatters and Free Spins: 3, 4, or 5 fresh mint scatters will gives you 15, 20 or 25 free spins, respectively.
What's best, of course, is that the free spins come with a 5x multiplier as standard.
And even better, if the fresh mint symbol comes again (which isn't that often, granted) you get an extra spin.
If you can get past the lazy theme, Georgie Porgie mobile slot actually hides some really good wins and interesting numbers in these rhyming reels.
It is enough to make us come back, but not enough for us to give it four stars, especially as at heart, this is a simple mobile slot based on a simple rhyme.
Still, if the theme isn't a problem for you, we'd highly recommend you try this Microgaming slot machine for yourself.
