Chicago Gangsters is a 5 reel game that is 3 symbols high. The game uses 20 standard paylines, playing from left to right.
Wilds – The Wild symbol is the “Wild Chicago” sign which substitutes for all symbols except Bonus symbols.
Bonus – The Bonus symbols are “Casino Chips”. You need 6 or more of them to trigger the game’s bonus.
Mystery Symbols – During random spins Mystery Symbols will appear on the reels, which are blank. Those symbols will be replaced by the same random symbol, not including Wilds.
Bonus Game – When the Bonus game is triggered with 6 or more “Casino Chip” symbols you will be awarded 3 re-spins. All Bonus symbols will stick in place during this feature and they are the only symbols that will now appear on the reels. Every time a bonus symbol does appear on the reels the re-spins will re-set to 3. The Bonus symbols will range from 1x the bet to 20x the bet. If you can land a blue “Casino Chip” you will trigger the 6x Mini Jackpot. If you can land a green “Casino Chip” you will trigger the 30x Major Jackpot. If you can fill all 15 spaces on the reels with “Casino Chips” then you will win the 1000x Grand Jackpot.
Who doesn’t love a gangster game? And what better time and place than Chicago during Prohibition? It is the perfect theme for a slots game and should always be taken full advantage of. The key icons are here: The Gangster holding the tommy-gun, the “Broad” smoking her cigarette from it’s long holder, the illegal drinks and the casino chips. But has it been taken full advantage of? Honestly, not really. The mystery symbol is an interesting feature and the bonus is excellent fun. But we need much more here. We need free spins, we need collect features, animated sequences and most of all we need a house edge that is much more reasonable than the 4.61% that is on offer here.
