Game of the Week – Gangster Night
If you like gangster movies or even The Sopranos, then you may enjoy Evoplay’s latest pokie. Gangster Night is the latest 5-Reel, 20 payline online pokie from Evoplay. The game a classic gangster theme along with free spins and a wild hunt feature. Let’s learn more about this new game.
Can You Be the Big Boss in Gangster Night?
Gangster Night is Evolplay’s latest gangster-themed pokie game. The 20 payline game has a smooth Jazz theme that reminds you of classic crime noir dramas. The paytable for this game is very basic. You have five Royals along with a thug, a detective, and the mobster.
Like most modern pokies, you usually won’t turn a profit on most single-line wins. You’ll need multi-line wins to pull that off. There are a couple of features that can help you score some big wins. Let’s look at them.
Wild Hunt Feature
During each spin, a spotlight will move about the board. If the spotlight is highlighting a primary character when the spinning stops, all instances of that symbol will become an expanding wild and cover the entire reel.
It is possible to get multiple expanding wilds. This can lead to some massive wins depending on where they are at on the reels. This feature paid off nicely a few times and resulted in two huge wins. The best was when an expanding wild covered the first three reels.
Free Spins Feature
The pocket watch is the scatter for this game. If you land one on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th reels, you will trigger the free spins bonus game. At the start of the free spins game, you will move to a new board and will receive 8 free spins.
The Lady Boss symbol will be added to the board and will become an expanding wild with a 2x multiplier. If there’s more than one instance of a Lady Boss on board, the multipliers will multiply. For example, two Lady Bosses will result in a 4x multiplier for all winning paylines using both symbols.
This is not the easiest feature to trigger. It took me about 125 spins to trigger this the first time. Unfortunately, I never got a Lady Boss multiplier. I ended up winning about 19x my bet during the game. After triggering this, I played about another 200 spins without triggering it again.
Gangster Night Has High RTP But High Volatility
There’s good and bad to like about Gangster Night. First, I like the Wild Hunt feature that can trigger expanding wilds. This feature gave me my best wins of the session. I had a couple of wins of 30x and 40x my initial bet with this feature. Also, this game has an RTP of 96.12%. This is above average and a great option for those looking for higher RTP games.
However, with that high RTP comes some high variance. Evoplay lists the game as “Low High” variance. That still means that the game is high variance, which I can attest to from the lack of hits for the free spins game.
This game is best suited for those that don’t mind variance. If you don’t mind a high variance game, you could do well with this one. Otherwise, you will want to look for a lower variance pokie. If you have a smaller bankroll, you will want to stick with spins under $1.
You can find Gangster Night at Woo Casino, Fair Go Casino, and all online casinos in Australia offering Evoplay pokies. This game has some massive prize potential, but it will require players to exhibit patience and have a sizable bankroll.
