An interesting new online pokie, Chicago Gold takes prohibition era America as the theme and comes via a partnership between Microgaming, one of the giants of the gaming world, and developers PearFiction and is an original and exciting game that will surely make many friends.
Compatible with Microsoft, iOS and Android operating systems, Chicago Gold uses cartoon style graphics to portray a humorous take on gangland Chicago and uses a 5 x 5 grid of reels and lines to provide a great array of possible win lines.
Chicago Gold is a highly volatile game designed for players who want to get involved in progressive jackpots and offers up to 5000 times the stake maximum. There are plenty of entertaining features during game play that will keep even the most experienced players interested.
The symbols in play include a gold coin with the mob boss as its figurehead, this being the major jackpot symbol, plus various cash symbols and a money collector who is highly amusing and nicely rendered.
While not an innovative game in any way Chicago Gold is a fresh and welcome take on a theme that has been much used and offers some special features that are of interest.
How to Play Chicago Gold
The 5×5 reel and line format is one that will be familiar to experienced players and is easy for a newcomer to get to grips with. The aim is to spin three or more matching symbols on adjacent lines starting at the left.
The game revolves largely around the Collect symbols which can trigger three different Cash Collect features, giving Chicago Gold a different approach to many online slots. These are:
- Regular Cash Collect in which the value on reels 1 to 4 is the total.
- Respin Collect in which the reels are cleared and a series of cash values replace them.
- Multi Collect in which a multiplier comes into play over all the values on screen.
These are an interesting addition to the usual paying lines and make for more entertaining in-game pay outs.
Special Features of Chicago Gold
The special features within Chicago Gold are mainly decided by the Cash Collect options described above yet there are also free spins triggered by certain combinations plus interventions by the Cash Collector and Hoodlum characters that add to the potential jackpot winnings.
Chicago Gold is an interesting and simple to play online pokie that will entertain all players.
