Knowing the locations of all Play Coin in Yooka-Laylee is important if you want to play Rextro’s arcade games. In each world, Rextro can be found along with a Play Coin, each offering access to a different type of game. In addition to being fun little blips from the past, these arcade games can also help you collect Pagies.

To help, we’ve put together a quick guide containing all Play Coin locations in Yooka-Laylee!

Play Coin #1: Tribalstack Tropics

Little does Rextro know, the first Play Coin in Yooka-Laylee is right below him!

In the first world, Tribalstack Tropics, the Play Coin is located directly below Rextro and his first arcade game, Kartos Karting. To collect the Play Coin, head over the side down to an open tunnel. Once you’re down there, look behind you. There, you’ll find a small cave entrance and inside the cave, the first Play Coin.

Play Coin #2: Glitterglaze Glacier

The correct Play Coin in Glitterglaze Glacier can be found in the middle of four other fake Coins on the right-hand side.

The next Play Coin in Yooka-Laylee can be found inside the Icymetric Palace. To reach the area where the Play Coin is located, you first need to progress through a vast majority of the Palace until you stumble upon Rextro.

Before you stop and say hi, head over to the back room and break some boxes to reveal a hidden door. Behind this door is a room with several Play Coins, of which only one is the correct Play Coin.

The genuine Play Coin can be collected on the far right side in the middle of four other fake Play Coins.

Play Coin #3: Moodymaze Marsh

To grab the Play Coin in Moodymaze Marsh, swim through the second tunnel and Lizard Lash your way to victory.

The third Play Coin in Yooka-Laylee can be collected by swimming through the second underwater tunnel in Moodymaze Marsh. Once you’ve exited the tunnel, head over and find the Lizard Lash tether on a box, which you can use to pull the crate down.

Use Lizard Lash again to reach the second platform, turn around, Lizard Lash again to the platform behind you, and there you’ll find the Play Coin.

Play Coin #4: Capital Cashino

The Capital Cashino Play Coin in Yooka-Laylee can be won via slot machine!

In the Capital Cashino stage of Yooka-Laylee, the Play Coin is located off to your right once you’ve walked inside. After heading right, follow the path until you stumble across Rextro. Nearby is a slot machine.

Here, you’ll need to use Buddy Slam on the three buttons to line up the images of Yooka and Laylee and earn the Play Coin. Be warned, though, the machine spins up with every button you slam down!

Play Coin #5: Galleon Galaxy

In Galleon Galaxy, the Play Coin can be collected atop a high mountain.

Last but not least, the Play Coin in the Galleon Galaxy level of Yooka-Laylee can be gathered atop one of the map’s highest points. If you’re having trouble, this peak is on the island where Rextro is hanging out by his arcade machine.

Note that this Play Coin can only be collected once you’ve expanded the Grand Tome.

After this is done, head to Galleon Galaxy and navigate over to the left area beside the pink moon. Here, you’ll find a skull and crossbones island. After running past Rextro, head through the island and up to the highest area to collect the final Play Coin. With the Play Coin pocketed, it's worth taking a moment to check out the balloon house that reminds us of Pixar's Up!
