No, this slot does not feature a story with Leonardo DiCaprio, Daniel Day Lewis, and scores of ruffians in 19th century Manhattan. Rather, New York Gangs puts you in the setting of the next great Mafia golden age - the 1920s and 1930s. Make like Mugsy, Al Capone, John Dillinger and all the other mafiosos and take the house for everything it is worth!
All in all, New York Gangs offers up a fine gaming experience. The theme is executed very well and the bonus features in the game are both plentiful and unique. The safe icon serves as a wild symbol in most instances and as a megawild if it should happen to appear on the 2nd or 4th reels. Three briefcases or three revolvers on a single, active payline will open up the odd man out or Russian Roulette bonus games, respectively. These games will test to see if you have what it takes to hang with the mob.
Perhaps the only gripe that one could have about New York Gangs is the graphics. While not as outdated as some of the classic slots on our site, the presentation of this slot unfortunately does leave something to be desired. The graphics are a bit choppy and the other presentational elements are not up to snuff.
Unlike hanging with the bad boys of New York, playing this game is quite easy. Use the "bet one" and two buttons on either side of the "line price" button to set the bet before clicking on the "spin" button.
If you are considering giving the pay version of this slot a try, then you should know that the progressive jackpot amount is listed just above the reels. You must wager the extra credit side bet in order to be eligible for this big prize. Having five jackpot symbols appear on an active payline will then win you the jackpot.
