Pragmatic Play Launch Peaky Blinders Slot
Famously described as incredibly powerful, incredibly ruthless, and incredibly well dressed, turn-of-the-century England gangsters the Peaky Blinders are the notorious criminal subculture on which Pragmatic Play’s latest big slot release is based. The leading developer’s first-ever branded slot, created in partnership with Endemol Shine and Peaky Blinders brand owner Caryn Mandabach Productions, has just gone live and is officially available to play.
Featuring the personas of Tommy, Arthur, and Polly Shelby, as well as Polly’s son Michael, Pragmatic Play’s rendition of the famous television mob-family is supremely spot-on. Each of the themed characters carry a different reward for landing 3 or more matching symbols on a payline. The themed Peaky Blinders characters are joined on the reels by a lower-paying suite of playing cards ranging from a 10 to an Ace.
Pragmatic Play’s Peaky Blinders features 20 fixed paylines positioned on a 5x3 set of rows and reels, and presents the player with a 2,022x maximum winnable payout.
Theme And Appeal
It’s important to remember that even though the slot was clearly designed with fans of the popular British television series in mind, being familiar with the fictional storyline isn’t a prerequisite to enjoying the game. Creatively crafted and capable of awarding massive wins in return for a wide range of betting options, this is an online slot that will appeal to most enthusiasts – regardless of whether familiar with the television production, or not.
But with that having been said, fans of the smash-hit television series, which is currently available on Netflix courtesy of the BBC, will be delighted to discover the true-to-form way in which their favourite Peaky Blinders characters have been recreated on the slot’s reels. It’s obvious right off the bat that Pragmatic Play has spent a great deal of time and effort recreating the theme, characters, and even the background setting, so as to perfectly reflect the essence of the TV series.
Special Bonus Features
As far as special features and symbols go, the Wild, the Peaky Blinders Bonus symbol, the Order of the Peaky Blinders bonus symbol, and the Shelby Betting Shop bonus symbol are the main ones to look out for.
Whenever the Peaky Blinders Bonus symbol is landed simultaneously on reels 1 and 3, and with the Shelby Betting Shop bonus symbol landed during the same spin on reel 5, the game’s Shelby Betting Shop Free Spins feature will be instantly triggered, along with 8 free spins awarded.
But that’s not the best the game has to offer yet, because when the Peaky Blinders Bonus symbol is landed simultaneously on reels 1 and 3, and the Order of the Peaky Blinders bonus symbol appears during the same round on reel 5, a splendid 10 free spins will be awarded by the Order of the Peaky Blinders Free Spins feature.
Overall a superb online slots experience, Pragmatic Play’s Peaky Blinders is bound to resonate with a wide range of players and bankrolls.
