Theme and Design
The reels of American Gangster are set within a neon golden machine that resembles a classic casino billboard, one that you would expect to find in Las Vegas surrounded by shimmering lights. You can view a small insight into city life behind the slot machine with street lights, cold streets and dark alleys – the perfect setting for a criminal underworld.
There are various symbols on the reels designed to look like they have been dragged straight from a 1920’s movie, these are; card values in neon colours; 9, 10, J, Q, K and A, a city image with bright lights, jewellery set, stacks of cash, an old-fashioned police car, a police officer, a glamourous lady and the dashing conman.
When the symbols fall as part of a winning payline, the symbols will come alive on the reels.
To the lower of the reels you will find the control panel and various buttons allowing you to choose your desired bet. The autoplay feature will play automatically on your behalf until you wish to switch back to manual playing.
American Gangster features 5 reels and 25 paylines. The paylines are not fixed, allowing you to play as few or as many as you like. The coin value per line can be set from 0.02 a payline up to 4.00 per payline, giving a minimum and maximum stake value of 0.40 and 100.00.
To get your hands on the massive 500x your bet non-progressive jackpot, you will need to spin in five of a kind of the scatter city symbols. The dashing conman rewards you with the second highest payout which will be shown according to your current bet.
Slot Features to Expect
The scatter feature is one of the most exciting features offered with three different possibilities:
- Scatter win: by spinning in at least two symbols on your reels will award you with a multiplier value.
- Free spins: receive 10 free spins for three symbols, 15 free spins for four symbols and 25 free spins for five symbols featured anywhere on your reels. All free spins can be re-triggered whilst playing free spins. During the free spins feature, all symbols randomly change to 2x, 3x, 5x and 10x wild symbols (except the scatter symbols).
- Jackpot: spin in five scatter symbols on your payline to be awarded with the non-progressive jackpot.
Gamble or bust is another feature that allows you to try and win more on a simple base game win. A random win on the reels will trigger the gamble feature – you have a limited time in which to make your mind up as to whether to gamble or not as the clock ticks away. Take too long – you will be credited with your win, but if you decide to gamble, you are taken to a new screen where you have a 50/50 chance of winning. Guess the colour of the next suit of cards from the playing cards placed face down on the screen to double your initial win. You can carry on gambling to double your win for as long as you guess correctly.
