ABOUT

Inspired by the popular TV show that depicts the darker side of life in Birmingham between the two World Wars, Peaky Blinders is the first branded slot in the Pragmatic Play’s mighty portfolio. Follow the Shelby family exploits on the reels and win up to 2,022x the bet! 

Betting Options and Bonus Features 

Pragmatic Play has done a wonderful job in transferring the grimy atmosphere of Birmingham's back allies to the reels. Together with the soundtrack from the show, both fans and those who have never seen Peaky Blinders will enjoy the gaming atmosphere without a doubt. 

The 5x3 grid comes with 20 paylines, 96.5% RTP, max win of 2,022x , and medium-high volatility level! On the top of the paytable are the main characters from the show - Arthur Shelby, Thomas Shelby, Michael Gray, and Polly Gray. Player needs at least 3 matching high-paying symbols for a win. The most they can get is the 20x the bet for 5 of a kind on a payline. 

Wild is there to make creating of the winning combos easier as it can replace any symbol bar Scatter and 2 special symbols - Shelby Betting Shop and By The Order of The Peaky Blinders. When a Shelby Betting Shop lands on the reel 5 (without 2 Scatters on other reels), it triggers a feature where cash prizes get sent to all the character symbols on the grid at that moment. 

The By The Order of Peaky Blinders symbol can appear on the reel 5 as well. When that happens (without 2 Scatters on the other reels), all Wilds and character symbols stay in place while the rest of the grid respins. After the respin, all character symbols and Wilds are transformed into one character symbol and the winning combos are paid out.   

Scatter aka Bonus symbol appears on the reels 1 and 3 but to trigger one of 2 available bonus rounds, it needs to hit in combo with one of the special symbols. If it happens with the Shelby Betting Shop symbol, a player is awarded 8 free spins. During this bonus round, the probability of triggering the Shelby Betting Shop feature is bigger and once it occurs, it plays out just like in the base game. 

If a Scatter lands in combination with By The Order of Peaky Blinder symbol, the player is awarded 10 free spins. Triggering the feature connected to this special symbol is more probable which when activated in the bonus round, behaves pretty much the same as in the base game of the slot.    

Roshtein’s Take 

While the Peaky Blinders slot is visually impressive, there is no doubt Pragmatic could have done a better job with this one. Two special features in the base game are good in concept and execution but I expected more for the bonus rounds. Don’t get me wrong, I got some nice wins spinning this one but the free spins rounds are simply underwhelming.
