Chicago Gold Online Slot by Microgaming and PearFiction Studios is a cartoony take on 1920s Chicago where Gangsters ruled the streets. This atmospheric slot takes place against the backdrop of a lamp-lit street from the days of prohibition with animated characters and gleaming card suits serving as symbols. The game’s bonus features include free spins and respins.

Game Symbols

  • Jewel cut clubs, spades, hearts, and diamonds are the low-paying symbols.
  • A police officer, a thug, a femme fatale, and a mafia boss are the high-paying symbols.
  • The wild is the word WILD that stands in for any symbol, except the cash, jackpot, collect and scatter symbols.
  • The scatter is the words FREE SPINS and activates the bonus game.
  • The Jackpot symbol is a gold coin with the mafia boss’ face on it that triggers the jackpot bonus.
  • The cash symbols are stacks of banknotes that award coin prizes when combined with a collect symbol.

Bonus Features

Cash Collects

When cash symbols land on reels 1-4, they are assigned a value of up to 25x your stake. You can only benefit from these if a collect symbol lands on reel 5 on the same spin. 3 Collect Symbol types deliver different benefits.

The Regular Collect symbol makes the femme fatale appear and blow you a kiss before she collects all the cash symbol values to add to your win amount.

The Respin Collect symbol causes the thug to appear and attack the reels with his baseball bat. This changes the reelset into a grid of empty positions except for the positions where the triggering cash symbols landed which are now sticky. A respins will happen and any cash symbols that land in the vacant positions will be added to the existing ones and assigned to your win balance.

The Multi Collect symbol makes the police officer appear, he spins a wheel that awards you up to a 5x multiplier and then fires a single shot, collecting all the cash symbols and applying the multiplier to their combined value.

Free Spins

When 3 scatters land on reels 1, 3, and 5, the game will add additional cash and collect symbols to the reels, and award you 8 free spins.

Jackpot

The most lucrative feature of the game is triggered when a Jackpot symbol appears on reels 1-4 and any collect symbol appears on reel 5. This will trigger a pick-me game where you have to select from 20 cash symbols to reveal jackpot symbols. Matching 3 identical jackpot symbols will award you the associated prize.

The Mini jackpot pays 50x your stake, The Minor Jackpot pays 100x your stake, the Major Jackpot pays 500x your stake, and the grand jackpot pays 5000x your stake.

Our Verdict

Chicago Gold slot puts a fresh spin on a classic theme with some great features and gameplay. Slot developers can fall into the trap of simply ‘dressing up’ a slot with a theme without integrating it into the gameplay. This title does a great job of creating an immersive environment by infusing the game’s characters into the primary bonus feature. The free spins feature offers exciting winning potential, but you will need to access the jackpot bonus to unlock the game’s full potential of $250 000. Anyone looking for a great take on an iconic theme and the chance to walk away with a healthy chunk of cash will be pleased to play this title.
