The crime-ridden and stereotyped world of the Mafioso is the theme of this online slot from Red Tiger Gaming; it’s called 5 Families and it takes us inside a mafia-run casino in New York as we try to gain entry into the valuable VIP Room – keep reading to find out how to unlock that door…..
5 Families is a five reel slot with three rows and ten fixed paylines; those ornate reels float above the casino carpet and there’s the chamber of a revolver above which contains five positions for five bullets – this is the key to the main feature.
We’re assuming that the five high value symbols are the heads of the various New York families, complete,with stubble, cigars and silly hats; lower value symbols include the briefcase/contract, the stack of casino chips, the tumbler of whisky and the newspaper. There are no wild or bonus symbols of any sort in this game.
5 Families Bonus Features
Entry to the VIP Room is gained by landing five wins in a row and each win will be noted by a bullet appearing in the chamber above the reels; an extra touch we like is the bullets which overlay the symbols likely to form winning combination.
Once you’ve made it into the VIP Room you’ll find a similar set of reels but this time every symbol is worth 5x the standard amount; the extra good news is that you can remain in this lucrative room until five consecutive non-winning spins are completed.
This is triggered from the base game by landing three of the jackpot symbols which will award either the Big Drop Jackpot or the Daily Drop/Hourly Drop prizes which must be won within those time limits.
5 Families is clever stuff and it loses nothing by dispensing with the standard scatters, wilds and free spins; the VIP Room is of course the ultimate destination here and there are some big wins for the more fortunate players once they’re inside. A slight downside is the relatively low RTP of 93.70%.
