The Bowery Boys (Hacksaw Gaming)
Hacksaw Gaming goes many years back to bring us an interesting slot called, The Bowery Boys.
The Bowery Boys were a popular New York gang many years ago, and they were famous for their stand against immigrants and Catholic teachings. The gang was based in the Bowery neighbourhood.
These were not probably the sort of guys an upright individual would want to associate with, but they make interesting characters when used in popular books, movies or online games.
Here is more about The Bowery Boys slot game:
The slot is played on a 6x5 reels grid with scattered pays. I always love peeping into the features section and for this game, I got things like the Buy Feature, Cascading Reels, Collect Symbols, Win Multiplier, and Wilds.
Betting and Prizes
One of the things that I was quick to notice is that The Bowery Boys is a viciously volatile slot game.
However, it offers a good real money betting range of between $0.10 and $100 per spin. I love the decent RTP provided, and although the developer has offered different values, 96.41% is the highest that you can get.
The Bowery Boys Slot Features
The most obvious feature here is the wild symbol, and it lands in the form of a powder keg. You can use the wild to substitute other regular symbols but not the bonus icon.
I'm always excited to work with cascades and this is what Hacksaw Gaming has provided on the slot. As usual with the cascades, they remove the winning symbols and replace them with new ones. It is a very beneficial process that can also trigger several wins. The feature will only come to an end once there are no more wins happening.
Then there are the Blasting Bomb Multipliers and they come in the image of bombs with values of between x2 and x100. These values are applied to the available pending win amount.
If you get more than one bomb, the values will be summed together and then applied.
Bonus games are a favourite to many people, and this slot offers a couple of them. With 1, 2, or 3 bonus icons landing within the base game, The bowery Boys will reward you with different bonus games which are Strongbox Storage, the Daisy's Dynamite, and the Bowery Savings Bank respectively.
All the above come with 10 free spins, but each one has its own additional rewards.
You can also use the Bonus Buy feature to purchase your way into the three bonus games.
Theme and Design
The slot offers some very interesting graphics, and the dark background tries to hint at the dark alleys where most gangs thrive.
Symbols include Royal (10-A), guns, premium boys, couples, fighting men, or lady tiles.
One of my surprise moments with the game was when I found out that it doesn't rely on the cluster pays, which is what Hacksaw Gaming thrives in. Instead, the developer has used the All-scatter wins system, one that is similar to what we have seen in games like Joker Bombs and Sweet Bonanza.
Hacksaw is a creativity expert, and The Bowery Boys is a good example of their great work. I love everything about this slot, and I can recommend it to all levels of players.
