Peaky Blinders slot is an August 2020 release from Pragmatic Play. It takes on the theme of the brilliant TV show, Peaky Blinders, featuring a range of familiar characters and lots of catchphrases from the main protagonist, Tommy Shelby. You’ll get a 2 variations of free spins bonuses and a couple of base game modifiers set on a pretty basic slot grid layout. So, if you’re a gambling man and want to see some of that gypsy witchcraft in action then this might be the slot for you, read on for the full details in the review below.
Graphics and Sound
Value for Money
Peaky Blinders slot will certainly appeal to fans of the TV show. However, whether or not it has any broader appeal is unlikely. The bonus rounds were entertaining enough but nothing out of the ordinary which would keep us coming back for more. It’s designed well enough and you can’t really go wrong with the music or with Tommy spitting out some one liners. I would have liked to have seen interaction with some of the other characters from the show, perhaps in the bonus features somehow, an enemy to face off against – maybe they’ll make another and we’ll see this incorporated.
Peaky Blinders Slot Stats
How it Pays and Plays
Peaky Blinders slot is set on a 5 reel 3 row grid with 20 fixed paylines. It come with a medium to high volatility and a maximum win of just over 2000x.
The RTP is set at a fairly generous 96.5% which is above the levels many other slots provide in 2020.
Stakes range from 20p/cents up to a high rolling $/£/€100 per spin (Peaky Blinders slot isn’t available in the UK at present).
There are “By Order of the Peaky Blinders” free spins and the “Shelby Betting Shop” free spins bonuses on offer. These also come into play in the base game as modifiers which will show their full potential if you manage to reach the free spins bonuses.
Symbols and Graphics
Peaky Blinders slot is set on the background of the streets of Birmingham in the 1910’s/20’s with some glimmers of sunlight shining down on what is an otherwise dark and dingy, crime ridden backstreet on a rough working class area. If you hit the free spins bonuses the background changes to Tommy Shelby’s office. A more suitable look for the potential rewards on offer.
Lower paying symbols include the playing card symbols starting from 10’s and going up to Aces. You’ll get 4x for 5 of a kind of Aces and 2x for 5 of a kind 10’s.
Premium symbols are the members of the Peaky Blinders family, starting from Michael, Polly, Arthur and finally Tommy at the top, paying 20x for 5 of a kind.
Wilds are copper looking symbols which say “WILD” on them and substitute for all other symbols except for the bonus feature symbols.
There are 2 Peaky Blinder bonus symbols which can appear on reels 1 and 3. There is also a “Shelby Betting Shop” symbol which can land on reel 5 and an “by Order of the Peaky Blinders” symbol which also lands on reel 5.
Base Game Modifiers
Shelby Betting Shop Feature
The Shelby Betting Shop feature starts when you land that bonus symbol on reel 5 without the other bonus symbols on reels 1 and 3. It will give a value to each of the premium character symbols on display from that spin. Starting with Michael as the lowest through to Tommy as the highest. Mostly we found it was a 2x value for Michael and 5x for Tommy, with these value doubled or tripled occasionally.
By Order of The Peaky Blinders Bonus
Land the “By Order of” symbol on reel 5 alone without bonus symbols on reels 1 and 3 and you’ll activate the respin feature. This will lock in all the character symbols in view and respin one time, any new character symbols which land will then all transform into one of the characters, hopefully making up some winning lines. This is where you really want to see Tommy land and connect.
Free Spins Bonuses
Shelby Betting Shop Free Spins
Get the bonus symbols on reels 1 and 3 and the Shelby Betting shop bonus symbol on reel 5 and you’ll get 8 free spins. Each spin has an increased chance of activating the Shelby Betting Shop game modifier.
By Order of The Peaky Blinders Free Spins
Get bonus symbols on reels 1 and 3 and the “By Oder of” symbol on reel 5 and you’ll score 10 free spins with an increased chance of the respin feature happening on each spin.
