“Georgie Porgie puddin’ and pie, kissed the girls and made them cry. And when the boys came out to play, Georgie Porgie ran away”. That is the nursery rhyme that Microgaming took inspiration from for their Georgie Porgie pokie. If you don’t read into it too much then this sounds like a harmless rhyme and one that could make for a very interesting pokie. However, there are a few issues with this pokie, issues that you don’t usually see on Microgaming titles.
To see these for yourself, head for Spin Palace, where you can play this pokie and many others.
The first problem we have with this pokie are the visuals, which are lazily put together and look incredibly dated. There is nothing of note here, nothing to redeem it. The game doesn’t even have a high RTP and you will struggle to land many big wins. It does have some audio programmed in, but like the visuals these are not up to scratch and get very annoying very quickly.
You can bet for as little as $0.01 per line on Georgie Porgie, with the game using a system of coins/credits.
Not all pokies have bonus features, and we can forgive many of them for this. Three reel pokies, for instance, have little room for them and tend to omit them because of that. On a 5 reel video pokie like this, we would expect at least 1 graphical feature, but there are none. It’s almost as if Microgaming were actually trying to create a game that no one would be interested it.
The nursery rhyme Georgie Porgie has some dark connotations that detract from the playful and fun style that Microgaming went for. It would have still worked if they had provided some big features, some unique gameplay and some better graphics, but in the absence of any of that this is a huge disappointment all round.
