Gangster Gamblers, which was released in October 2016, is an Internet casino game made by Booming Games. Gangster Gamblers is a Japanese underworld-inspired slot game that incorporates police procedure; the crime-busting theme reminds of The Crackdown (Booming Games, 2016). Rivaling slot games include Gangsta City (2018) from Bwin.Party Digital Entertainment, Gangsters (2016) from Habanero, and Reel Gangsters (2009) from Pragmatic Play.
The players encounter different characters, including the notorious Yakuza gangsters playing a card game at a dubious casino, which is evident in the name “Gangster Gamblers”; four of its symbols require 2X, 3X, 4X, or 5X combinations, while the remaining six symbols require 3X, 4X, or 5X combinations.
Gangster Gamblers Game Characteristics
Gangster Gamblers has a 5X3 grid. There are fifteen optional pay lines. The following are the ten Gangster Gamblers predominantly black-and-white symbols. First, there are two special features: a free spins-offering bloody crime scene (Scatter); and a Japanese hostess holding a “Wild” hand fan (substitute).
Gangster Gamblers has eight ordinary symbols: a white silhouette of a Japanese gangster kneeling down; a pistol-wielding Japanese undercover policeman flashing his badge; someone writing a letter; a luxury sedan car parked outside a bar; a gangster enjoying sushi; and playing cards “9, “8”, and “3”.
The Gangster Gamblers coin values: 0.01, $0.02, $0.03, $0.05, $0.10, $0.20, $0.30, $0.50, $1.00, $2.00, $3.00, $5.00, $10.00, and $20.00. There are no standardized total bets because the bet sizes readjust themselves according to the set pay lines and coin values. Even then, the minimum bet is $0.01. For example, using all 15 pay lines has the largest range of bets: 0.15, $0.30, $0.45, $0.75, $1.50, $3.00, $4.50, $7.50, $15.00, $30.00, $45.00, $75.00, $150.00, and $300.00 (the maximum bet).
Staking the $300.00 maximum bet, as an example, has these Gangster Gamblers payouts for two, three, four, or five winning combinations. The bloody crime scene has $600.00, $1500.00, $3000.00, and $9000.00; the “Wild” hand fan pays $100.00, $1000.00, $20000.00, and $40000.00; the gangster’s white silhouette pays $100.00, $1000.00, $4000.00, and $10000.00; and the playing card “3” pays $40.00, $60.00, $200.00, and $800.00.
Payouts for three, four, and five combinations: the badge-showing police officer pays $600.00, $3000.00, and $6000.00; the letter being written offers $500.00, $2000.00, and $3000.00; either the luxury sedan car, or the serving of sushi pays $100.00, $300.00, and $1400.00; and either playing cards 9, or 8 offers $60.00, $200.00, and $1000.00. More than three bloody crime scenes offer ten free games. The non-progressive jackpot in Gangster Gamblers is 600 credits.
The good Gangster Gamblers software is designed like other Booming Games’ bitcoin games. The pistol cocking and pistol shots after pressing the spin icon, the tough-talking gambling criminals whenever playing cards match, and the automatic rifle gunshots whenever luxury cars match are some of the innovatively composed sound effects. The 3D graphics are expertly designed, ranging from the gangster-style drive-by shootings associated with matching luxury cars to the bullets strewn on the table forming the backdrop of the settings and substituting for the usual +/— signs to the dimly lit back streets, where the gangsters are casually strolling waiting for their next victim.
