Kings of Chicago – Classic Slot and Poker Play Combined as an Entertaining Video Slot
Kings of Chicago by NetEnt effectively combines the concept of slot gaming with poker play to deliver a new kind of playing experience. A 5-reel online video slot, Kings of Chicago slot makes use of the standard poker hands as high-paying pay line combinations, appearing in any of the game's five (5) bet lines. The positions of the card symbols in a payline do not have to follow the exact order of a poker hand combination.
Kings of Chicago slot players can achieve regular wins by aiming to land on three or more like-symbols in a bet line. The position of the one-a-kind symbols in a payline does not have to be in adjacent reels, for as long as each matching symbol falls within the payline pattern.
The five (5) payline patterns comprise three horizontal lines formed by each row of cards laid out as reel icons. The two other payline patterns are V shaped symbols. The first V originates from the top most card of the first reel, and ends at the topmost card of the fifth reel. The second V symbol starts from the last card of the first reel and ends with the last card of the fifth reel.
Kings of Chicago Betting Options
The presentation of the playing cards as reel icons mimics the card-dealing motions used in a video poker game. Instead of placing bets on a spin, Kings of Chicago slot players place wagers on a card deal. Each deal is for five sets of five-hand poker cards on which they can stake one (1) coin per hand or as many as ten (10) coins per hand. The value of the bet placed per deal will be based on the coin value selected by a Kings of Chicago slot player, anywhere between 0.01 to 1.00, multiplied by the number of coins placed as bet on each card deal.
A minimum bet therefore can be as low as 0.05 (1 coin x 5 card deals x .01). The maximum bet per deal on the other hand is 50.00 (10 coins x 5 card deals x 1.00).
Kings of Chicago Poker Hand Combos for Big Wins
Players can win big on deal outcomes that form poker hands such as a natural Royal Flush, a Royal Flush with Joker substitution, a Full House, a Straight Flush, a Flush, and a Straight. The natural Royal Flush pays the highest, awarding as many as 1,000 coins as payout. A five-of-a-kind hand in a payline pays 1,500 in coin rewards. The equivalent payout value of the coin rewards depends on the amount of bet placed per deal.
Kings of Chicago Slot Wild Symbol
The Joker card is the Wild Symbol of the game. Aside from having the capability to transform an icon into the card symbol needed to form a winning combo, the game pays twice the payout value if the payline win was formed with the help of a Joker Symbol.
Kings of Chicago Free Deals Bonus Game
Any card icon can serve as Scatter Symbol that activates the Free-Deals Bonus Game. A card-dealing round that returns with three (3) or more card icons labeled as Scatter Symbols, launches the Kings of Chicago Free-Deals Bonus Game. Three, four, or five cards labeled as Scatter, will set off 10, 15 or 30 Free Deals respectively.
In addition to the Free-Deals, the Kings of Chicago slot bestows Scatter Pays of 2, 15, 50, or 500 coins for every two or more Scatter-labeled card icons.
