Journey back into 1920s America where alcohol may have been prohibited but winning certainly wasn’t! Speakeasys started opening up all over the city of Chicago where people would go to drink and to dance and to gamble. This is what makes Chicago Mobile such a great slot as you can play the sort of game that became popular in the era the game is set in. The background featuring the historical buildings of the city of Chicago, mixed with the sepia-style filter and the sound effects and music, all come together to make you feel as if you really are a part of this amazing period in time! The characters you see on the reels are all characters you’d likely come across in 1920s America and playing this slot is as exciting as it would have been to enjoy some illegal alcohol in a speakeasy! In this slot, on top of the normal and generous game, you can win free games with the Bottle Shooting Bonus which can multiply your wins by up to x10! Players who are fans of other Novomatic games, such as: Cops n Robbers Millionaires Row, Red Lady and Showgirls are absolutely going to love this game and those who like to play on the go will be delighted to hear that the mobile version is exactly the same as the desktop version.
People from New York are New Yorkers; people from Dallas are Dallasites; and people from Chicago are Chicagoans – just like all of these symbols are! Of course, Chicagoans who used to pass the time away in Speakeasys drank hooch and played cards so it’s no surprise that the lowest-paying symbols in this game are the card value symbols from 9 through to Ace. The higher-paying symbols are the Chicagoans themselves and you’ll find: a bull (a 1920s policeman), a young shoeshine, a miserable-looking barmaid, the sheriff with his pistol and a gangster smoking a fat cigar! All of these symbols pay from three matches or more and they’ll need to fall on a payline and on reels that are next to each other, starting from the leftmost reel. You can choose to have any number of the 20 paylines active and the bigger your bet is per active line, the bigger the payouts for winning combinations of symbols will be. Have a look at the paytable as this will show you payout amounts which correspond to your chosen bet. The minimum bet per payline is 0.01 and the maximum bet per payline is 2.00.
There are two additional symbols which fall on the reels of Chicago Mobile and these are the Wild symbol and the Scatter symbol, both of which pay from two or more symbols. The Wild symbol is the skyline of Chicago with the city’s name written on it. This can substitute for any other symbol on the reels except for the Scatter symbol. The Scatter symbol is the 1920s car and this will pay wherever it lands, heedless of paylines or consecutive reels. When you spin three or more of this car Scatter symbol, you’ll get yourself a nice lot of 12 free games which come with the extremely lucrative Bottle Shooting Bonus. During the free games, there will be 5 different bottles sitting atop the reels and each will represent a different win multiplier. The win multipliers are: x1, x2, x3, x5 and x10. For every free spin in which you spin a winning combination of symbols and get yourself a payout, the bonus will be triggered and you’ll watch as these bottles are shot one by one, until the last bottle is left standing and the win multiplier for that free game is revealed. Your payout will then get multiplied and will be paid to you! Don’t forget you can gamble these wins (as you can in the normal game, too, as long as you’re not playing in autoplay mode) to multiply them even more! The gamble game in Chicago is Novomatic’s signature 50/50 chance double-or-nothing gamble feature where you’ll need to choose the colour of the next card – get it right and you’ll double your win but get it wrong and you’ll lose it! You’ll need to have nerves of steel to go up against this but it can be extremely, extremely rewarding indeed!
