Chicago Gangsters slot review by Playson

A very underrated provider currently is ‘Playson’ , they have such a  wide range of slots and some very unique games made by them. They have just announced a new slot called ‘Chicago Gangsters’. There is no current release date.

The theme is nothing new, it features gangsters from the early 1920s with symbols of whiskey, cigars, and guns. They have done a good job with the artwork and graphics. Also, the sounds go very well with the theme. The game does remind me of NetEnt’s moonlight riches as they both do have the same theme but this slot has much better graphics. Looks good but can it pay?

When spinning, mystery symbols can land, when the reels have all landed a mystery symbol will appear on all the spots. I received this feature quite often when testing this slot, got some great hits with premium symbols. Great balance booster.


‘Pays from £1 bet’

For symbols we have 4 lower tier symbols of the classic J,Q,K and A. Then 4 higher themed symbols of whiskey/cigar, Old car, Lady and mafia leader symbol. The highest symbols are the mafia leader and wild symbol which both pay the same. The wild substitutes for all symbols. Nice artwork on the symbols but they are nothing we haven’t seen before.

Bonus Game

If you land 5 or more bonus chips you will get a chance at the game’s jackpot. Any chips that have landed will stick for the duration of respins. You get 3 respins and when you land another chip the respins will go back to 3. This will repeat until you either fill up the board or have 3 consecutive spins without any additional chips. Basically just like Wolf Gold’s feature. When respins have finished your total will be calculated. All chips are multipliers for your bet size. If you fill all the spots you will get the jackpot.

  • Mini £30.00 30x of your bet size
  • Major £150.00 150x of your bet size
  • Grand £1000 1000x of your bet size

Overall, I think this game is okay, it does seem to have some potential but it is nothing original. It is medium volatility and is very well made. The jackpot feature could payout insane if you get some great multipliers to drop in or even get the grand.

GamePlay- 3/5


Bonus Game- 3.5/5
