Wild Chicago Slot Review

Wild Chicago Slot Review

We’ve added another BGaming slot to our casino, and this one is a special treat for those who enjoy historic-themed slots. As suggested by the name Wild Chicago is set in early 20th century Chicago. Despite the realistic imagery in the background, the game suspends reality with its colourful crew of anthropomorphic mobsters who rule the reels with an iron fist. Everything from the game icons to the backdrop is both luxurious and seedy, such as the fat cigars beside expensive bottles of scotch.


In this Wild Chicago slot review, we’ve broken down the game to explain how it works, starting with the format and theme and finishing with an in-depth explanation of the bonus features. We’ll also highlight the best way to start playing the game, regarding depositing funds, so that you can launch a real money session without delay. Of course, this game is also available to play free of charge using Practice Play mode, which is an excellent way to test it out without any risk to your bankroll.

Gameplay & Design

Designed to look like Chicago during the early 20th century, Wild Chicago has reels that spin over a beautiful colonial building with a Ford Model T parked in front. The reels are ornate and full of mobster-themed game symbols, like the aforementioned cigars and scotch, Tommy Guns, and a collection of suspicious-looking characters. The music is jazzy and gets you in the mood to explore the underbelly of Chicago in the early 20th century.

This game has five reels and three rows of icons. Matching icons need to line up on any of the game’s 10 paylines to trigger a payout, and there are 11 standard game symbols. The high icons are themed and include the animal mobsters (lion, lizard and pig) and their paraphernalia. The mob boss is the crocodile, which happens to be the wild symbol.

The low icons are poker symbols 9, 10, J, Q, K and A. While all icons require a minimum of three matches on a payline to pay out, the “9” pays with just two. The game’s Return to Player (RTP) is very high at 97.1%, and it increases further to 97.26% through the Buy Bonus feature, which we’ll discuss in the next section. On any given spin, you can win up to 4,684X your bet.

Key Features

Wild Chicago has many of the familiar bonus features found in online slots here, including scatters, wilds, multipliers and free spins.


Watch for the Vault symbol on the reels; this is the scatter and it helps in two ways. First, the scatter offers instant payouts when you land two or more anywhere on the reels. Second, three or more scatters trigger a round of 15 free spins with triple the payouts.


The mob boss is the wild card. This ferocious-looking crocodile wearing a suit and top hat substitutes for any other game icon, except for scatters, in order to complete winning lines. Every time he helps you snag a win, he doubles the payout with a 2X multiplier, so stay on his good side.

As you may have suspected, the crocodile mob boss is also known to grease palms from time to time. He slips you special payouts based on his personal paytable when you land two or more of him anywhere on the reels.

Buy Bonus

Launch the game’s free spins bonus round by shelling out 100X your total bet and clicking the “Buy Bonus” button. This sends the reels spinning and forces three scatters to land, triggering the 15-round free spins session.

Bonus Rounds

Free Spins

Wild Chicago has an excellent free spins bonus round that’s triggered when you land three or more scatters anywhere on the reels. As mentioned above, you can also buy your way into it through the Buy Bonus feature. All of the payouts triggered in free spins mode are tripled thanks to a special 3X multiplier—complements of the boss. Landing another three or more scatters before the spins run out will retrigger the feature, which can technically carry on indefinitely.


Casino Crypto Play

To fast-track a deposit to your Bodog account, consider using cryptocurrency as your deposit method. This takes a few steps to get started (check them out in our video tutorials), but is worth the effort and very easy once you’re up and running. Cryptocurrency is a peer-to-peer digital currency, so it does not rely on a financial institution to authorize transactions. The elimination of a financial middleman makes it faster and cheaper than conventional credit cards.

One of the best things about using cryptocurrency as a deposit method is the access to crypto-specific promotions. Our crypto welcome bonus is the perfect example; this 150% match bonus can get you up to $900 in bonus funds for our casino. Everyone is eligible for it when they make their first crypto deposit. Be sure to check it out on our Promotions page.

Requesting a withdrawal via cryptocurrency is also highly recommended, as you get near instant access to your funds after we authorize the request. We don’t just take Bitcoin either; consider the benefits of going with less-known digital currencies, like Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin SV, Litecoin, Ethereum and USD Tether. Tether is a fascinating option as it’s asset backed and matches the value of a USD.

Cryptocurrency is quickly becoming the best tool for doing business online, and Bodog Casino has championed it for years. To see how easy transactions are when you use crypto, you can watch our video on making a crypto deposit at Bodog. There’s another one that shows you the process of creating a crypto wallet and exchange account with recommendations on which to go with. We doubt you’ll return to the more traditional deposit and withdrawal methods after getting a taste of crypto freedom.
