Reel Gangsters Slot Machine

This 5 reel video slot by Octopus Gaming is based on a 1920’s gangster theme. There are animations, a 5-stage bonus game, free spins and the chance to bag a big prize in regular play with the 10,000 coins awarded for hitting the jackpot. The visuals are on the cartoony side, with the jazz backing track including a double bass riff when you hit a winning combination. I have seen more detailed gangster type slots, though very few that play as smoothly as this one.

This slot is set outside a bank at night-time, presumably the next target for the gangsters. There is a vivid logo on top of the reels with a gun on either side. The background of the reels themselves is black, and the symbols are colourful and cartoon like. These include a mix of gangster and cop images. You’ll find guns, a police badge, sacks of money and even a pair of knuckle dusters. There are various gangsters, including one that looks like the boss, one with a gun and a glamorous lady with a cigarette – though I’m not sure whether purple hair really was around in the 1920’s or not.

I enjoyed the bank heist bonus, with one reservation on the very last of the 5 parts. In addition there is a free spins game.

Join "the Garbage Business"

This game has 20 win lines maximum and you can bet from 1c per line up to $5, for a 20c to $100 spin range. There is an auto-play option and settings tab which allows you to switch off the music, sound effects or animations if you wish.

The biggest single win is with 5 wild symbols on a line. These are a gun pointing at you with the word ‘Wild’ written on it. If you land 5 of these then you will win 10,000 coins, with 1000 for 4, 100 for 3 and 10 for just 2. The wild performs the usual role of substituting for any symbol except for the bonus and scatter signs.

Of the regular symbols, it is the people that will pay out the biggest prizes. The ‘don’ has a 1000 coin prize for 5, the lady 300, cop 300, gangster with the gun 200 and gangster with cards 150. The rest of the symbols make up the smaller prizes that will keep your bankroll ticking over.

Bonus symbols take the form of a safe. You need 3 or more of these anywhere on the reels to trigger the bank heist bonus. The number of safes you get influences the number of bonus points (which match your coins) that you can win during the bonus feature. Scatter symbols are an old style newspaper. You can win up to 25 free spins with this anywhere on the reels. This is for 5 of them, while 4 get you 10 spins and 3 gets you 5.

Reel Gangsters Bonus Features

The bank heist bonus is a pick-em game that can be up to 5 rounds long. It is quite complex and interesting compared to those on many other Octopus Gaming slot machines. If you get 5 safe symbols to start you can win a maximum of 30,750 coins, which should keep your interest levels up!

You are taken to a break out screen, and asked to select a weapon from 5 possible options. Each one of these has a coin amount based on how many safes you hit to start the bonus. Next you choose a car; this time one of the 5 has a ‘game over’ sign behind it (these continue for the next rounds too). After you select one and reveal your prize, the remaining prizes and location of the game-over are shown each time. Next you need to ‘case the joint’ and select one of 4 ways into the bank. Again, 3 have prizes and 1 is for game-over. Round 4 sees you stealing a key from a moustached clerk, and the final round lets you use that key to open one of 4 safes.

My one gripe was with this final round. You made it a long way, only to find that 3 out of the 4 safes will end the game with no further prizes. One of them contains a prize. For me this made the bonus game end on a flat note too often. It would be better to have at least a consolation prize to go with one or two of the ‘game over’ safes. If you get the money safe, then you’ll be in for a big prize.

Scatter symbols trigger up to 25 free spins (25 for 5, 10 for 4 and 5 for 3). There is no different behaviour for this bonus, only a counter at the top and sign to show your total winnings before you go back to the regular game.

Reel Gangsters – You'd Be a Wise Guy Not to Miss it

I enjoyed this slot. It is one of the best that Octopus Gaming has created and has one of the best bonus games of any online slots available to the US market. So see if you can avoid getting pinched by the feds and get connected with Reel Gangsters. You certainly won't forget about it.
