Peaky Blinders Slot Review

Based on the hit TV show about Birmingham gangsters from the early 20th century, the Peaky Blinders slot is a 5 reel, 20 payline game from Pragmatic Play.  Superbly designed, it comes with a pair of modifiers that can strike in the base game. These award a respin where all the character symbols transform onto the same matching symbol or instant win cash prizes.  Trigger the free spins features and you’ll get free spins complete with extra opportunities to land one of the modifiers. Find out what the Brummie mobsters have to offer in our detailed Peaky Blinders slot review.

Theme – Audio & Design Features – official slot for the TV cult favourite

Peaky Blinders slot base game

The Peaky Blinders slot is the official game for the hit television series. The Peaky Blinders were a Birmingham gang from the early 20th century who got their infamous name by hiding razor blades in the peaks of their caps. They were brought to fictional life in a TV series of the same name starring Cillian Murphy as the gang’s leader, Tommy Shelby.

The design team at Pragmatic Play has put plenty of effort into this slot adaptation which looks and sounds superb. The images are photorealistic and very nicely done. There’s no mistaking any of the characters here. Accompanying the action is the famous Nick Cave-style soundtrack which is terrific. It’s an excellent recreation of the show and creates plenty of atmosphere. You’ll also hear snatches of dialogue from the show from time to time too.

The reels are set against a grimy, industrial street scene from Edwardian Birmingham. On the reels, you’ll find a collection of lower value royals alongside a collection of high value characters from the series.

They include Polly Grey (Helen McCrory), Arthur Shelby (Paul Anderson) and top man Tommy Shelby (Cillian Murphy). Tommy Shelby is the most rewarding symbol. Land 3, 4 or 5 on a payline and you’ll win an award of 2.5, 10 or 20 x your total stake. Those same amounts are available from the wild that also substitutes for all the standard symbols.

You can join the Shelby clan on all devices. Pragmatic Play has created Peaky Blinders mobile and tablet slots. You’ll find the same high-class design and features that are available in the PC version. It’s a very solid combination and very playable if you’re using a small screen device. Overall, the sounds and visuals are excellent, what device you opt for.

Bonus Features in Peaky Blinders

Many branded slots play it safe when it comes to features and bonus rounds. You’ll find a few potentially interesting extras here though, starting with a pair of base game modifiers that can strike more regularly when you trigger the free spin rounds.

By Order of the Peaky Blinders feature

By Order of the Peaky Blinders feature

To trigger the By Order of the Peaky Blinders feature, you’ll need to land the By Order of the Peaky Blinders Bonus symbol on reel 5. The character symbols on the reels are held and a re-spin follows. All the character symbols are then transformed into the same matching symbol and a new payout consideration is made.

Shelby Betting Shop feature

Shelby Betting Shop feature

The Shelby Betting Shop feature triggers whenever you land a Shelby Betting Shop bonus symbol on reel 5. All of the character symbols on the reels deliver a cash award. This is totted up on a chalkboard to the right of the reels. The totals are combined for your final payout.

By Order of the Peaky Blinders Free Spins feature

By Order of the Peaky Blinders Free Spins feature

Standard scatters on reels 1 and 3 plus the By Order of the Peaky Blinders Bonus on reel 5 will also get you 10 free spins in the By Order of the Peaky Blinders Free Spins feature.

This time, you’ll see extra By Order of the Peaky Blinders Bonus symbols on reel. Once again, the modifier is triggered whenever one of them lands.

Shelby Betting Shop Free Spins feature

Shelby Betting Shop Free Spins feature

The Shelby Betting Shop Free Spins feature is triggered by landing the standard scatter symbol on reels 1 and 3 plus the Shelby Betting Shop Bonus symbol on reel 5. You’ll then go on to play 8 free spins.

Extra Shelby Betting Shop Bonus symbols are added to reel 5 during this round. Each time one hits, you’ll activate the Shelby Betting Shop feature.

Peaky Blinders Review Summary – a classy adaptation of the crime classic series

The Peaky Blinders TV series has become something of a phenomenon. The original BBC2 series has spawned a resurgence in the flat cap as well spin off music festivals and much else besides.

The Peaky Blinders slot looks the part as the sound and visuals are terrific, creating just the right ambience from the show. The features aren’t hugely original but the modifiers deliver plenty of action in the base game and in the free spins features.

However, the max win of 400 x stake per spin is rather disappointing. Add that to the fact this slot isn’t available in the UK and it’s a bit of let-down. There are much better branded slots out there including NetEnt’s Vikings and Microgaming’s Game of Thrones which are also better TV series in our opinion.

However, even if you’re unfamiliar with the Shelby gang or you’ve never seen the original TV series, this atmospheric adaptation makes Peaky Blinders worth a spin.
