Taboo is a February 2018 erotic video slot whose dominant theme is BDSM—bondage, dominance, submission, and masochism. Its various subthemes include: erotic practice, fetish, female submission, flogging toys, rope bondage, kinkiness, psychodrama, sex restraints, and animal roleplay.
Taboo, which uses Endorphina’s software, is among the ten slot games grouped by “unique” theme in the developer’s online catalog, alongside: Book of Santa (December 2019), Cash Tank (February 2020), Cuckoo (April 2017), Satoshi’s Secret (May 2015), 2027 ISS (April 2017), 2016 Gladiators (September 2016), Diamond Vapor (January 2017), Slotomoji (March 2017), and Twerk (October 2016). Taboo’s rival video slots include: Madame Pain from Booming Games, Forbidden (June 2016) from Spinomenal, and The Forbidden Chamber from Gameplay.
The noun “taboo” refers to a socially unacceptable or irreligious conduct, which, contextually, is sexually subjugating a partner using unorthodox pain-inducing ways like whips. One symbol (a triskelion) requires three bonus-activating combinations. One symbol (submissive woman) requires two, three, four, or five winning combinations. Nine symbols (high-heeled legs, handcuffed hands, a pair of handcuffs, collar lead, tassel whip, B, D, S, and M) require three, four, or five winning combinations.

Three triskelion motifs unlock the random multiplier picker wheel bonus game. The picker wheel is subdivided into four sectors; every section is marked X10, X12, X15, X20, and X25 in red, and partitioned with “BONUS” markings. The rotating wheel’s pointer randomly pinpoints either a multiplier or the “BONUS” sign that, after players click “TAKE WIN” during this mode, redirects to a red room; player may be prompted to select rewarding wall-mounted sex restraints, although sometimes the submissive woman refuses to award and can terminate the bonus game.
Winning combinations unlock the “TAKE RISK” side game that can be bypassed via the “TAKE WIN” icon. Once clicked, the “TAKE RISK” icon redirects to a card game—there is a faded face up playing card (for comparing with yet-to-be-revealed face values) towards the left of the four red leathery face down cards. When a picked face down card flips to disclose a relatively lower face value, the current win is wiped out. The current win is doubled when a picked face down card flips to disclose a relatively higher face value. Taboo’s non-progressive jackpot is $100000.00.
Taboo has good software whose notable features include: “TURBO” and “AUTO” icons that are tapped once or twice to (de)activate; game statistics; changeable graphics; and auto spins with customizable limits. The ambient background consists of sensual instrumental. Sound effects include: a woman whispering sexily (e.g., “submission” whisper), glowing wheel’s red dots, and whiplash. The animated 3D graphics include: glowing symbols, whipping, and the reddish erotic video clip.
