Mob king Al Capone battles Eliot Ness and the Untouchables in Chicago, a gangster-themed slot from Novomatic. Played using a 5 reel 20 payline engine, this volatile slot comes with great graphics and a bonus feature where up to 24 free spins are awarded, complete with multipliers that can top 10x. Take to the mean streets from between 20p and £40 per spin.
Great design and Novomatic aren’t often found in the same sentence but in Chicago, the developer has created a cracking looking slot. The visuals have a grainy feel that hark back to the 1930s and Prohibition era America.
Set against a cityscape backdrop, the reels include A to 9 playing cards alongside a cheeky looking kid and a uniformed cop which pay up to 25 times your stake. Next comes the gangster’s moll who awards up to 40 times your stake. Best of all are Al Capone and Eliot Ness. 3, 4 or 5 of these in combination will get you 2.5, 25 or 100 times your total stake.
The Chicago skyline symbol is the wild – as well as replacing all other symbols apart from the scatter, it can also deliver some mighty payouts. 2, 3, 4 or 5 on a single payline and you’ll win 2.5, 12.5, 125 or 500 times your bet.
Chicago comes with a Free Games feature – to trigger it, you’ll need to land 3 or more of the mobster’s car which is the scatter. As well as a payout of 5, 20 or 100 times your stake, you’ll also be awarded 12 free spins.
After every successful free spin, you’ll be presented with a selection of bottles. Take aim and fire to reveal a multiplier of 1x, 2x, 3x, 5x or 10x. The amount in the last bottle standing will be applied to your win from that free spin. This Bottle Shooting Bonus feature take place after every winning free spin. Land the scatters and you can re-trigger another round of 12 free spins.
As you’d gather given the theme, this is a pretty volatile slot with the variance being very high. Expect plenty of spells when you won’t get away with much in the way of loot. Trigger the free spins, land a decent win then boost it with a big multiplier and some bumper heists are possible. With good design and a top feature, this trip to Chicago is well worth making. If you like mobsters, Playtech’s The Sopranos is worth a look.
