In a landmark release, premier content creator Pragmatic Play delve into murky gangster territory with their first ever branded slot.
Peaky Blinders takes inspiration from the gritty crime drama of the same name that has seen huge success in the UK, bringing the terrifying mobster attitude onto the reels for what promises to be an electrifying slot experience.
Will the online casino version live up to its small screen counterpart? Read on to find out.
Set in Small Heath, home to the notorious Shelby family of mobsters, the action takes place across a classic 5 reel, 3 row reel setup with 20 paylines in operation.
Peaky Blinders boasts some outstanding audio-visual production. The developer manage to recapture the real-life grittiness of 20th century Birmingham, when mobs ruled the streets with razor blades hidden in their caps. Taken directly from the TV show, the accompanying theme tune can be heard in the background for an added touch of authenticity.
As to the gameplay, photorealistic versions of the family comprise the premium symbols, worth up to 20x your stake for the appearance of five Tommy Shelbys during a spin. In typical online slot fashion, the game’s self-titled Wild symbol substitutes for all standard symbols to help you make those all-important winning arrangements.
Gameplay & Features
Line up at least 3 identical symbols across adjacent reels to bank yourself a win in Peaky Blinders, starting at the left outermost reel.
Pragmatic Play have loaded the game with features and modifiers to heighten your gaming experience. We’ll examine these in brief below:
By Order of The Peaky Blinders
Summon The Order of the Peaky Blinders to see all character and Wild symbols turn sticky at random moments, prompting a Respin. Huge payouts potentially lie in wait whenever all corresponding symbols then transform into the same character upon the reels.
Shelby Betting Shop
The Shelby Betting Shop is open for business and ready to lavish you with some serious rewards. This feature can trigger at any time, assigning cash values to all premium character symbols that show up in any spin. Your total haul is then added together and calculated once the round concludes, before being credited to your account.
Peaky Blinders Free Spins
The two features above can also be enjoyed in conjunction with Free Spins, outlined below.
By Order of The Peaky Blinders Free Spins
Help yourself to 10 of these Free Spins whenever Scatter symbols show up on reels #1 and #3 in a spin, along with a By Order of the Peaky Blinders Bonus symbol on reel #5.
The modifier is then triggered whenever one of the corresponding symbols lands during the feature.
Shelby Betting Shop Free Spins
Shelby Betting Shop Free Spins Spins arrive after the same Scatter requirements above sync with a Shelby Betting Shop Bonus symbol landing on reel #5. This round sees you kick off with 8 Free Spins, with the Shelby Betting Shop modifier activated if its symbol makes an appearance.
Note that neither of the two free spins rounds can be retriggered - so aim to maximise your win potential whenever they enter the action.
Peaky Blinders on Mobile
Wildz players can embrace the mobster life on the very streets the show was set, with the video slot optimised perfectly for mobile play.
No matter how you to choose to get your gangster fix, you’ll find the same classy visuals and immersive gameplay across just about any modern device.
A score of 4/5 means Peaky Blindes ranks high on the volatility index. While not the most volatile slot in Pragmatic Play’s content library, the game is capable of punishing players with prolonged spells of dry streaks. Addressing the balance, wins tend to pay handsomely on the rare occasion they arrive.
The game’s 96.5% RTP rating is slightly above average, however, promising a decent return on players' outlay in the long run.
Pragmatic Play have evidently taken their time crafting their first ever branded release, and the result is a high quality offering that does well to revive the 20th century UK mobster spirit in slot form.
A relatively modest top payout worth 400x is a little disappointing, and is likely to put off the high roller crowd in search of some monster paydays - but fans of the TV show are likely to be well catered for in this highly polished game.
