Novomatic’s latest entry into online casinos debuts this week. While its title might lead players to believe that the game is associated with a specific 90s song from a particular artist, the new Gangster Paradise game actually covers the prohibition-era United States, when gangsters ruled in cities like Chicago and New York.
This is a software provider which doesn’t tend to stray far from the standard video slot format, and with 5 reels and 25 lines, everything about the basic structure of the new release is predictable. Has Novomatic come up with something more original in terms of this game’s special features, though?
Basic Gameplay Ideal for First-Timers
The new Gangster Paradise slot costs a very standard 25p per spin at its cheapest. Players wishing to flesh out their bets can wager up to £100. For those stakes, they can expect to try and win a non-progressive jackpot which is capped at 500 coins. So far, so beige. What else has Novomatic got in their arsenal?
Wilds and scatters do pop up in the slot, but again, there is nothing overly surprising about that. Wilds can substitute for all barring the scatters, and the latter can dish out free games when 3 or more show up on the reels.
Tried and Tested Features Make an Appearance
Police badge scatter icons will reward players with scattered cash prizes and 7, 10 or 15 free spins when 3, 4 or 5 land anywhere on the screen. In this slot’s free game feature, players can win additional spins with just 2 or more scatter icons. It is also worth noting that during the bonus round, symbols can appear stacked. Fully stacked icons on the reels will transform into wilds, giving players a marginally better chance of landing wins during this feature than in the base game.
As for other specials, players are set to be out of luck. What you see is very much what you get. Novomatic, it seems, had no other tricks up their sleeve after all.
Gangster Paradise is Now Live
Gangster Paradise makes its debut at Novomatic casinos this week, though the slot is anything but a paradise for players. With its elementary gameplay, the slot is more ideal for newbies than more experienced slot veterans. Everything is just a touch too basic for too many slot players to become overly involved in this new release.
