The Chicago Gold online slot hits desktop and mobile casinos on 4th February 2021. It’s the first release under a new partnership between Microgaming and the independent PearFiction Studios. Based on the Prohibition era, Chicago Gold is a 5-reel, 40-line game with a high volatility, jackpots, free spins, and some ingenious Cash Collect features.
Meet The Mob
The cartoon symbols include playing card suits, a cop, mobster, and his gal, all set against the mean streets of 1920’s Chicago. In the Cash Collect features, a mobster can trigger respins with sticky collect symbols, the cop can fire win multipliers onto the reels, or the gal can award all collect symbol values right away.
The boss opens up a jackpot round, where players click cash symbols. Matching any 3 from the 20 symbols awards the Mini, Minor, Major, or Grand jackpots. The Grand is worth 5,000x the total bet.
Scatter symbols launch 8 free spins with extra jackpot and collect symbols on the reels.
The Start Of A New Partnership
Although the Chicago Gold online slot is the first fruit of this new partnership, it will soon be followed by Blazing Mammoth, a prehistoric adventure themed game. The two companies also worked together on The Smashing Biscuit slots game, which proved to be a big success for them both.
It’s the latest deal in Microgaming’s ever-expanding partnership agreements with independent studios.
