There are some slots that instantly stand out from the rest; Chicago is one of them. This slot from Novomatic is themed on Chicago during the Prohibition Era and comes with a brilliant interface and an interesting storyline; it is the story of the Untouchables, a band of lawmakers led by Eliot Ness, and their war with mob boss Al Capone - a story glorified by the movie The Untouchables. The slot has 5 reels and 20 adjustable paylines, and you can bet between 20p and £40 per spin.
Chicago from Novomatic has a superb look and feel that is greatly enhanced by 2 elements: the colour grading in monochrome sepia and the caricature-style symbols that populate the reels. These 2 elements give the slot an extremely edge and noir-ish touch. The reels are set against the backdrop of Chicago and the symbols in the game include Al Capone, a Chicago cop, Eliot Ness with a Sheriff's badge, a gangster's moll, a newspaper delivery boy, and the numbers 9, 10, J, Q, K and A from a regular card deck. The wild symbol is the Chicago skyline symbol while the scatter is Al Capone's car. The wild substitutes all symbols to form winning combinations except the scatter symbol in this game.
There are different ways of scoring wins when playing Chicago apart from putting together winning combinations with the regular symbols or aided by a wild. Landing 5 wild symbols across the reels gives you a 5,000,000-coin payout. Landing 2 scatter symbols across the reels also gives you a win with a 2x multiplier.
The main bonus feature in this game is the free spins bonus, which is triggered by landing 3, 4, or 5 scatter symbols across the reels. You get 12 free spins with a multiplier that depends on the number of scatter symbols landed. Each time you win a free spin you get the Bottle Shooting Bonus feature: you get a screen full of bottles that you are supposed to shoot at to reveal multipliers. Also, landing the scatter symbols again re-triggers the free spins bonus. There is also the Gamble feature at the end of every winning spin, which gives you a chance to double your winnings from that spin by guessing the colour of the card that is dealt face-down correctly.
