Theme of the Game
Powerful and dark. Perhaps even scarier than it is up to our own liking. That is the easiest and most concise way to describe the brand-new game coming from Booming Games called Gangster Gamblers. We should all know much better than to walk by ourselves down the dark alleys in the crime-laden city where Japanese gangster could eat you alive.
It is a dangerous black, white and red world these gamblers live in and one should have a stomach for film noir kind of a game, presented in a classical, old-school feel to it.
Graphics are not exactly too polished, but the soundtrack is impressive. Impressively frightening, one might add. Five reels come with 15 paylines in this gangster action that is a scintillating challenge, filled with different rewarding features that are at offer.
The creators of Gangster Gamblers are truly living their dream. A gaming company with its offices in Manila, Athens, Isle of Man and London, Booming Games have managed to harness the talents of a group of creative programmers with a simple aim of producing different, unheard of gaming content that would propel them to the very top of the industry.
Their games are offering continually rewarding experience for players and gamers, at the same time fulfilling the needs of the demanding clientele. As a B2B company, Booming Games fosters and nurtures the in-house production which yields fantastic end results.
How to Play it
The game itself will give you clear instructions from the start with a couple of pointers that will help you get a good look and have a feel of the command panel.
Five reels and three rows are set on the backdrop of a dark, dimly lit alley and contain classic black and white movie elements.
Bear in mind that this is an oriental themed game, but not the usual one as it features Yakuza gangsters from what we know, some Asian food, a taxi, three different card numbers a lovely Geisha Wild and a blood splatter Scatter.
The game pays from left to right and will reward you for notching at least two matching symbols for most of the icons involved.
The game offers a selection of movie snippets and interactive cut scenes whenever you land a winning combination, so don’t be surprised if you see a man firing a gun at you from a taxi.

Intriguing in its nature, the game of Gangster Gamblers is no different when it comes to extra features.
Geisha Wild is a substitute for all symbols other than Scatter, who in their own power can bring upon the Free Spins feature.
You can hope to land 10 free rounds if you get lucky enough to notch three Scatters anywhere on the reels, whereas the feature itself is spiced up by a special in-play feature.
A comic book will appear during the Free Spins feature to randomly select a symbol that will go Wild for the duration of the free spins, thus adding plenty of value to your winning potential. The pages of the comic book will flicker around and it is up to you to press stop and select which symbol will become wild.
Booming Games did not live up to the expectations with their noir title when it comes to special features as other than the Free Spins feature players will be deprived of any real thrilling bonus mode that would have been gangster-like.
Gangster Gamblers are available from the starting point of $0.15 while the best can go up to the total bet worth $45 with the maximum 15 paylines played at the top bet per line worth $3.
The game offers a fixed jackpot worth 600 coins which can be won by landing the Geisha symbols in full line of five. Four of those will cut the reward in half and one symbol will make a huge difference here as it appears.
Call us light-hearted and queasy but severed fingers are not exactly our theme of choice. Gunshots, blood spatters we can handle, but everybody has their line. Booming Games wanted to make a bold step forward with their game and we understand, even appreciate the effort.
Still, if they wanted us to get over the fact this is a blood-thirsty theme promoting the gangster life then they should have made sure to incorporate more exciting features, bonus rounds, multipliers and game modifiers of sorts, which are all sorely missed in this dark slot game.
