Pull Back the Curtain
Chicago The Musical slot machine looks exactly how it should – bright and bold lights, a stage full of actors and actresses and in the foreground, are the reels of the game. Paylines are hidden to allow you to take in the full beauty of the graphics on offer. Symbols you will find on the reels are the wild, Velma (brunette), Roxie (blonde), Billy Flynn, letters in red which spell the word CHICAGO, crystal heels, Mama, Jackpot wild and pink feathers. Use the control panel to the lower of the reels to set your bets by adjusting the value or paylines and it is here that you can monitor you wins and balance. Hit the question mark option to be taken to the paytable and rules on how to play.
Sing to Win
Thankfully there’s no singing involved with winning when it comes to playing this innovative slot, you just need to be lucky enough to spin in the winning combinations and hey presto. Try to spin in a full payline of wild symbols as these award the highest payout of 1,000x your stake. Roxie is the second highest value symbol – 5 of a kind will trigger a 100x multiplier whilst Velma offers up to a maximum of 80x your stake. Billy Flynn is last but not least, with 60x your stake.
Swinging Slot Features
The crystal wild symbols will replace other symbols on the reels (apart from Mama). There are a handful of wild symbols which can come in as just wilds or wilds with a jackpot attached or with the actors and actresses attached – each do the same, replace other symbols to create winning combos. Mama (scatter) is the key to the free game bonus; 9 of these appearing on reels 2, 3 and 4 will activate free spins. You are required to pick 3 symbols on the reels to reveal 1, 2, 3 or 4 free spins. During your free spins, for every Mama that appears, you will be awarded an additional free spin. Three of the crystal heel symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4 will activate the Broadway Bonus, this features 10 tiers, each with 9 poster options. Choose one of the posters to reveal your reward.
Silent Movie from IGT is very similar to the Chicago The Musical slot as it takes you into a cinema and it’s on the screen that the action unfolds. This time, you have a 5-reel, 30-payline slot that allows you to play from 30.00 to 900.00 – perfect for the high rollers among you. Take a seat and spin the reels and you could find yourself triggering free spins, a very exciting bonus game that hides tons of cash and regular base game wins. Big jackpots come in the form of a 1,000x multiplier – typical of IGT, but you have to spend big to win big.
Book a Ticket
We have seen Chicago the musical and can say that this slot game from High5 Games is a perfect tribute. The actor and actress symbols on the reels will perform before your very eyes when they hit winning combinations – this allows you to think you are watching the show rather than playing the slot machine. Keep your eyes peeled for the pink performing feathers as they unravel to reveal mystery symbols. The biggest wins will come via the bonus game and free spins – but don’t expect to trigger these too often, as this medium to high variance slot will require you to play for sustained periods before dishing up its goodies.
