Windy City is a 5 reel slot game and each reel is 3 symbols high. The game uses 10paylines, playing from left to right.
This slot has a prohibition theme. Set in Chicago in the 1920s you have all the glitz and glamour that you might associate with the time. The reels are populated by gangsters, glamorous women and bootlegged crates of booze. Chicago sits in the background, the bright lights of its music halls and movie theatres setting the scene on this period piece slot.
Wild – The Wild symbol is the “Mob Boss”. Wilds will substitute for all other symbols other than Scatters and they are the most valuable symbols in the game.
Scatter – The Scatter symbol is the “Car”. Scatters pay out in combinations of 3 or more regardless of paylines. They also trigger the Free Spins, if you can land 3 or more of them on the reels on any single spin.
Free Spins – If you trigger the Free Spins feature you will be given 10 Free Spins in total. The feature can be retriggered.
Take Risk – Whilst you might not necessarily class this as a bonus feature, it does play a significant role in the gaming experience. With every win you get the chance to try and double your win by trying your luck in a game of “Play Your Cards Right” with the game’s dealer. If you can flip over a card that is higher than the one the dealer is showing you will double your win. Flip a card that is lower than the dealer’s and you lose the lot. This round continues until you either choose to stop gambling, you lose out to the dealer or you manage to win 10 times in a row. In the result of a tie, no one wins.
Windy City is a well-designed slot that uses images and sounds from the 1920s to bring to the reels a version of Chicago that we have all seen before in books and films. As for features, you get Free Spins, Wilds and gamble feature. You Free Spins come don’t come with any modifiers but they can be retriggered. The house edge is offering some value, but nothing all that exciting. All things considered, this is a relatively basic slot that looks good.
