Theme – This slot has a gangster theme. As such you can expect guns and cigar smoking men in wide brimmed hats. The era is Prohibition, 1920s America.
VIP – The only significant features in this slot are the VIP symbols. These occur when the VIP feature is triggered and essentially all it means is that all symbols are worth significantly more than they normally are.
VIP Feature – The VIP Feature is the only feature in this slot. You trigger it by landing 5 consecutive wins in a row. Each time you land a win a bullet will be loaded into a chamber. They reset to zero after you fail to win but continue to fill with subsequent wins. Once the chamber has the 5 bullets you will see the value of all the symbols increase significantly, meaning that the quality of your wins should improve. You have 5 VIP spins that reset to 5 every time you land a win. In other words, the feature will end after 5 failed spins in a row.
The central feature in this slot is excellent. However, it is the only feature you do get. You don’t even get Wild symbols. Add to that a house edge that is much too high and you have a slot that is very difficult to recommend.
