Prepare for yet another journey to the dodgiest parts of 1930s America – this time on the reels of American Gangster, a fancy comics-style slot machine by The game provider with a RTP of 95.04%. They have already organized a couple of breathtaking excursions to the concrete jungle with their Chicago and Cops ‘n’ Robbers slots, so there’s absolutely no reason to worry that something’s going to go wrong this time: you’re in good hands. Relax, get into the car and give those reels a spin!
Before letting the reels roll you might want to bring your ambitions and bankroll in harmony by making a few adjustments. The slot gives you control over the line bet and the number of win lines in play; both values are set with the help of the “+” and “-” buttons situated below the reels. Once set, the values get multiplied by each other, resulting in your total bet per round. This sum will be deducted from your game balance with each spin. The number of win lines in play determines your odds of hitting a win, while the bigger you bet on a single line, the more impressive are the potential prizes. The paytable will show you the values of all winning combinations depending on your current bet, and once satisfied, hit “Start.”
In the case of playing card icons, your only aim is to land 5 matching ones on a win line in a row – this will guarantee you a payout of 4 times your bet. As for themed symbols, most of them start to pay out when you land 4 matching ones in a row. Two symbols – the city view and the gangster himself ¬– stand apart, paying out decent amounts already for 3-of-a-kind combinations. The gangster is also a typical wild, being able to substitute for nearly any other symbol on the reels; the city view image, in turn, is a scatter – this means that you win as soon as there are enough of them anywhere in view irrespective of the win lines.
The scatter is also responsible for triggering the bonus game: 3, 4 or 5 of them in any position on the reels will grant you 10, 15 or 25 free spins respectively; the free spins may be retriggered during the bonus round. Another additional feature is the gamble game that allows you to multiply any prize you’ve won. This comes in especially handy when the amount won doesn’t really meet your expectations. Simply hit the “Gamble” button, guess if the suit of the face-down playing card in the middle of the screen is red or black and double your prize! Remember though that it’s double or nothing with equal odds.
