The slot’s symbols are reminiscent of a real casino. Set in Vegas with a casino theme, it involves coins, bars of Jackpot gold and bars of silver, and jackpot machines for reviving that nostalgic element. The low-paying symbols are constituted by symbols A, K, Q, and J while the intermediate symbols are constituted by symbols of card decks like Clover, Hearts, Diamonds, and Clubs. The high-paying symbols are the Gold Bars and Silver Bars and the Big Red 5 acts as a scatter and the WILD symbol is wild. The top multiplier is 500x the placed bet and is garnered through a cumulative of at least 5 occurrences of the high-paying symbols. The max bet of $200 is slightly on the higher side, while the top win of just 500x is far below average, in comparison to slots such as White Orchid paying 8,33,333 and Treasures of Troy offering a massive 3,12,500. Players can opt for the Big City 5’s free version before playing it for real money with a real money variant.
This slot game has free spins feature activated through the scatter and the wild that can be accessed in the Big City 5’s demo game. The game has no additional bonus features apart from the free spins round and bonus pots and their associated payouts.
Free Spins Round
The free spins can be triggered through the scatter symbol Big Red 5. The Big Red 5 can trigger up to 25 free spins on its appearance on a pay line. 3 occurrences of the Big Red 5 symbol trigger 15 free spins, 4 occurrences trigger 20 free spins and 5 occurrences trigger 25 free spins. The round can be reactivated again.
Bonus Pots Feature
The bonus pots get attached to the symbols as multipliers and activate wins per symbol. The pots hike up the wins and their values increase with 3, 4, and 5 occurrences of the symbol they are associated with. The bonus pots reset each time the symbols pay with multipliers and start the round anew.
Players can gain all the profits of the slot and get the free spins along with the multipliers with the Big City 5’s real money game.
RTP and Payouts
The game has an RTP of 96.0% which is quite good for IGT games but it has no applicable variance or volatility. Hence, finding out the winning percentage gets difficult for this game. The game does not promise very high chances of winning the max amount but awards with smaller payouts frequently.
There are no separate bonus game wins and all the payouts are accessed through the base game. The highest payout is a top multiplier of 500x the placed bet and can be accumulated through 5 occurrences of the symbols. The Jackpot Bars of Gold pay well so do the Silver Bars. Except for the wild and scatter, all the symbols have fixed payouts.
Max Win and Top Multiplier
The highest win or top multiplier for this slot is 500x the placed bet. The top multiplier has limited scope but it is also due to the non-applicable variance of the game.
