Windy City Slot Review

Step back in time to good old Chicago during the 1920s/30s as you tap your feet to classical jazz. Everything wasn't all that jazz at the time, on the streets, you had to duck and dive from the mafia as they went on a wild goose chase. Put on your best Al Pacino impersonation as you keep your friends close and enemies closer on the reels. I would have killed to be a godfather, but then again, I am one to my nephew. I don't think he would appreciate the head of a dead horse in his bed though.

Gameplay

Windy City is a 5x3 reel, 10 payline video slot powered by Endorphinasoftware. Symbols include Royal Card Suits (10-A), Crates of Whiskey, a Mobster Character, and a Beautiful Woman Character. Special Symbols include the Head Mafia Character Wild and the Vintage Car Scatter that triggers the Free Games Feature. There is also a Risk/Gamble Feature. More detail will be given in the Features section.

As far as controls go, on the far left-hand side, you will find the Menu icon (circle with horizontal lines) that opens up to Statistics, Autoplay Settings, Language Preference, Sound and Miscellaneous options. They are followed by the adjustable Line window, clickable Coin Value, and Bet buttons to adjust to your preference. Next are the Turbo Spin, Autospin, and Spin buttons. Above the reels, to the right, you will find an Information icon that expands to the Paytable and Game Rules, Mute Button, and Full-screen Mode button.

Features

The features in Windy City include the Head Mafia Character Wild, the Vintage Car Scatter that triggers the Free Games Feature and the Risk/Gamble Feature.

The Head Mafia Character Wild substitutes for all symbols, except the Vintage Car Scatter, in forming potential winning combinations.

Land 3 Vintage Car Scatters to trigger the Free Games Feature, awarding 10 free games. The Vintage Car Scatter also acts as a Wild during the feature. It is also possible to retrigger the feature.

You have the option of playing the pick a card Risk/Gamble Feature after each win, you will notice that when you land a winning combination that the menu icon at the bottom left of the reels turns red with white cards. If you choose to gamble your win, click the red icon where you will have to select a card if your card is higher than the dealer's card. You have the opportunity to win up to 10x your initial win here but could also lose it all.

Unique Features

Unfortunately, there are no unique features to this slot.

Performance

Windy City is a typical slot with Wilds and free spins as features. There is nothing new or innovative on offer here, but you can land some decent wins as you spend time in downtown Chicago. The design, animation, and graphics are very well done. The volatility is medium-high and RTP is at 96%.

Max Win

The max coin win is 5000x your stake.

Conclusion

If you loved the Godfather films, then this old school mafia-themed slot will make you realize that "It's not personal, Sonny. It's business." This slot is not cluttered with features and gets straight to the point of landing some significant sums of cash. I'm going to pour a whiskey and add some new names to by little black book.
