The Bowery Boys Overview
Hacksaw Gaming released a new online slot games called The Bowery Boys.
This game is set in New York and revolves around one of the earliest New York gangs, the Bowery Boys. It’s a rather dark themed slot with a very cartoon style background of the city.
You will find standard card symbols and different gang members and weapons. You will also find wild symbols on all reels and special bonus symbols.
The game uses 6 reels which are each 5 symbols high. The game doesn’t come with lines. But instead with scatter pays. No matter where the symbols are on the screen, any 8 of more of them are a winning combination.
The Bowery Boys Features
Winning combinations are removed from the reels and all symbols fall down. New symbols fall on top to create the option for another win. After no more cascades happen you are awarded your total prize.
If one or more box symbols land on the reels together with a key symbol, the box is opened. There are small, medium and big boxes. These will award between 2 and 5 times your bet, 10 and 25 times your bet and 60 and 250 times your bet respectively.
Blasting Bomb Multipliers
Bomb symbols have a multiplier of between x2 and x100. These are collected and after all cascades are over, the total win is multiplied by the total bomb multipliers collected.
Free Spins Features
1, 2 or 3 bonus symbols will award Strongbox Storage, Daisy’s Dynamite and Bowery Saving Bank free spins respectively.
- Strongbox Storage – 10 free spins. All boxes that appear without a key are stored. You can store a total of 5 boxes. When a key lands, all boxes, including the stored ones, are opened. Each bonus symbol during free spins will add 1 more free spin.
- Daisy’s Dynamite – 10 free spins. Dynamite Multipliers will have a multiplier of between x2 to x100 and are collected and stored. When a detonator appears the total win of that spin is multiplied by the total collected multiplier.
- Bowery Savings Bank – 10 free spins. Every win is paid but also stored in a vault next to the reels. Dice symbols will multiply the value of the vault by x2 to x12. If a Police Officer Badge hits it will remove between 10% and 50% of the value of the vault. If you get a dollar sign, you will collect the current value of the vault and the vault is reset to zero.
Some online casinos will have the option to buy the free spins bonuses. They will cost 80, 200 and 300 times your bet.
Let me say that I personally am not a fan of this dark, crime theme. I prefer more colorful games and more fun themes. But I’m sure a lot of players will like this theme.
The game offers a lot of great features. The scatter pays is a fun addition. The base game bonuses, but also three free spins features. And all three are enjoyable. The Bowery Savings Bank free spins are the highest volatile, so here is where you will probably get your biggest wins. But I also enjoyed the other two a lot and those can also pay great.
The maximum win on The Bowery Boys is 10.000 times your bet.
