Cotton Gang Affair Review
Italian-American gangs in the New York City area around the early 1900s have provided the backdrop for many movies, TV series and slots too. It is a fascinating theme and Red Tiger has decided that this will be the setting for their next slot production.
It looks like a pretty simple setup but there are a couple of additions worth talking about, so let's get down to business and see if we can infiltrate this shady gang.
Cotton Gang Affair doesn't push the boundaries to any great extent but it is a nicely laid-out game with some classic touches to remind us of this bygone era. Set in a smoky lounge with a stage in the background, the reels are set up there for everyone to see while various dubious characters are settled in for the evening’s entertainment.
The music is a typical light jazz number that taps away unobtrusively in the background and mobile phones are a great way to access this Red Tiger production; it works just fine for both Android and Apple customers.
The game is made up of a slightly different set of reels than normal with a 5x3 grid for the most part and an additional row on the central reel for a little variation. This combination not only boosts the pay lines to 324 ways but also gives Toni a chance to stack across 4 places to provide his wild help.
The free spins bonus is very much an extension of the base game although the major difference here is that Toni will appear for each and every spin to provide wilds and multipliers.
There is a big 10,000x max win on offer in this game but you will have to take on Toni’s gang and their high volatility if you are going to see such mouth-watering prizes. The RTP is just about right at around 96% and the game boasts a high hit rate so you should see a fairly constant flow of winning spins. However, don’t expect each one to be equal to your bet amount.
Red Tiger has tackled many different game genres over the years with varying degrees of success. They have the skills to produce some top-class productions but sometimes they struggle to go the extra mile—it feels a little like that with Cotton Gang Affair. It is a good game but it won't blow your mind, unlike Toni’s Tommy gun.
