The Peaky Blinders slot game can be found at casinos offering Pragmatic Play software. Pragmatic Play should now be considered an established software provider, with a fairly prolific output. As a standard Pragmatic Play do publish the RTP/House Edge information for their slots games within their game help file. For a provider that are not currently licensed within the UK market and therefore are under no obligation to publish these figures this is a significantly progressive move. The House Edge for Peaky Blinders is 3.5%.
Peaky Blinders has 5 reels and each reel has 3 symbol spaces in it. There are 20 paylines in total, playing from left to right.
Theme – This slot is all about the British TV show set at the turn of the 20th century in the city of Birmingham. The predominant themes of the TV show would be gang culture and violence. As for the slot, there doesn’t appear to be as much violence as the TV show, but the themes of family and gangs are present in the symbols used and through some of the features that we will explore in more detail.
Wild – The Wild will substitute for all paying symbols.
Bonus – The Bonus symbol lands on reels 1 and 3 and works in combination with the Order of the Peak Blinders symbol, which only lands on reel 5 and the Shelby Betting Shop symbol, which also only lands on reel 5, to trigger various features.
Shelby Betting Shop – The Shelby Betting shop symbol will trigger the Shelby Betting Shop feature just by landing on the 5th reel. When it lands with a Bonus symbol on reels 1 and 3 it will trigger the Shelby Betting Shop Free Spins.
Order of the Peaky Blinders – The Order of the Peaky Blinders symbol will trigger the Order of the Peaky Blinders feature just by landing on the 5th reel. When it lands with a Bonus symbol on reels 1 and 3 it will trigger the Order of the Peaky Blinders Free Spins.
Shelby Betting Shop Feature – If you trigger the Shelby Betting shop feature then all the character symbols on the reels will be given a monetary value. The value of all of these will be added together and awarded as an instant win, which will also pay out in combination with the usual paylines.
Order of the Peaky Blinders Feature – This feature triggers after a spin and once any wins have been paid out. When this happens all the character and Wild symbols will remain on the reels whilst all other symbols spin again. After this respin all the character and Wild symbols left on the reels will transform into the same character symbol.
Shelby Betting Shop Free Spins – You get 8 Free Spins and during those spins there are more Shelby Betting Shop symbols added to the 5th reel, meaning it is more likely that you will trigger the Shelby Betting Shop Feature. You cannot retrigger the feature.
Order of the Peaky Blinders Free Spins – You get 10 Free Spins and during them the Order of the Peaky Blinders Feature will be active on every spin. You cannot retrigger the feature.
Pragmatic Play will be hoping for big things from this branded slot. The show has grown in popularity over the years and is now considered one of the BBC’s most successful exports. The slot remains true to the show, something that can be seen in the character symbols and prominence of dark grey colours. There are 2 Free Spins features and there are some smaller features too that help to modify the Free Spins too. Whilst there is nothing all that original about the features, they are still enjoyable to play. The colours are arguably a little too grey and dull, making it difficult to distinguish between some symbols, but then again, a Peaky Blinders slot was always going to look like this. The house edge is offering good value.
