The Gang Job Slots

One unique thing about The Gang Job slots is that it's from a company specializing in online slots that use HTML5 rather than Adobe Flash. This is great as Flash is being phased out at the end of 2021. There seems to have been a rename, however. Looking at The Gang Job slots on some online casinos brings up The Mob Heist slots instead. It seems to be the same game with identical payouts and symbols.

The game design is intriguing. There's a freight elevator with space for the five characters to stand it in. Those spaces are the reels. Light jazz plays in the background and you hear the gears and doors shut as the symbols drop into the elevator. It's a fun way to capture the game's theme, but the bonus features seem hard to trigger and the payouts don't seem overly generous, so I was a bit disappointed by that.

A Peek at the Paytable

The gang is made up of several characters. They all pay 1 to 10 times your total bet, and you only need one of them on a reel in order to win. The gang includes the Boy, the Doc, the Boss, the Goon, and the Girl. The police officer is an expanding wild and pays 50 to 8 when you get her at least three times on a reel. The wild police officer does not substitute for the gang members of the bonus symbol. Remaining symbols and payouts are:

  • Jack and Queen – 5 to 50 coins
  • King and Ace – 10 to 100 coins
  • Handcuffs and Revolver – 15 to 200 coins
  • Liquor Bottle and Flick Knife – 25 to 300 coins

The payouts in The Gang Job don't seem high, but you can make them larger. After a win, you do have the option of gambling your winnings. “Double Up” triggers a card game where you have to pick a card that's higher than the dealer's. If you're successful, your winnings double. You can collect your new prize or keep trying to grow it.

The Gang's All Here

If you fill the enter first reel with the Goon, rather than just one or two squares with some of his body, you get a respin. If you fill the second reel with the Girl, you get another respin, etc. The goal is to fill the reels with full gang members. If you manage to fill all five reels, you win up to 15 free spins. With any luck, you'll happen to hit it so that all five characters line up with one spin rather than having to hope for the best. It's not an easy bonus feature to win.

There's another bonus feature in this crime-themed slot game. The vault bonus symbol triggers the Bank Job bonus round. In this bonus game, place dynamite on a vault door and blow it open. You're awarded for your success.

The Gang Job slots has a lot of promise if you don't mind not seeing the bonus features appearing often. After 30 minutes, I still hadn't gotten three vaults or lined up the gang on the reels. It makes me think that hitting those bonus features is a rare event and likely the most rewarding feature in the game when one finally strikes.
