It’s the 1930’s and you’ve been sent to the city of the future, full of mechanised blimps and art deco glamour. But what is the point of this Epic City mobile slot?
As Odobo slots go, this one isn’t half bad. Though we have to warn you that on certain devices, it can be a little slow, so be sure to check your WiFi connection.
Otherwise we found it worked well on a variety of mobile phones and tablets.
Best of all, due to the design of this video slot, with it’s high roof and elaborate form, it works both in landscape and portrait, so you can use one when playing on iPad or tablets, and the other when on your smaller Android phone or iPhone screens.
From that dazzling background turning from day to night for the free spins, to the train going across your mobile screen every once in a while, this truly is what future cities should look like.
Even the gamble feature is prettier than most as you spin a compass for a 50/50 chance of doubling any wins.
That said, the reels on this Epic City slot machine can feel a little small at times.
Especially as over 20 paylines, and with most of the symbols being either gold, red or blue, it can be a little difficult to differentiate between all the symbols.
Though it certainly get graphically exciting when the whole board electrifies, and you play the click me bonus feature.
It tells you something about how much a machine expects to pay out when the sign ‘EPIC WIN!’ jumps out of the screen on a 30 times your bet win.
This is a fun, easy to play, entertaining game. You won’t become a millionaire playing it and you certainly won’t have enough to buy the future of the city.
With the click me bonus feature we mentioned, for example, you’ll be lucky to walk away with about 20 times your bet, even if you reach level 5. There’s sometimes the potential for more a little more, in fairness.
However, there is room to walk away from this Epic City slot game with more than just pocket change.
The free spins bonus, for one, tend to be where you’ll get your most substantial rewards, especially if you catch the 20 free spins, rather than the 8 free spins.
The reason is simple; you’ll get stacked wilds and a random multiplier assigned to you, from 2x to 10x.
And with those two features, all those symbols that pay little in the game can accumulate to get you more interesting wins. Like 50 times or 100 times your bet.
Still, generally, you’ll need to wait around for a while to catch those. But meanwhile, your budget will last you long enough to get you a shot at a couple of this slots bonus features for your entertainment.

Wild Symbol: The golden man (the one that looks like an Oscars statue) is wild. It replaces all symbols except scatter and bonus.
Though it can appear stacked on all reels, it's not hugely common in the base game.
It does however, come more plentiful during the free spins.
Click Me Bonus Games: The symbol with 'bonus' written on it, if it shows up on reels 1, 3 and 5, will trigger a multi-stage interactive click me game, with 5 different stages.
Here a lighting storm will knock out the city's electrical power. It's your job to restore it by choosing a selection of fuses and switches that are displayed on the screen.
You can either get instant cash, a collect all wins, progress to the next stage, or a simple end of the round.
Scatters and Free Spins: Get three, four or five scatter 'free games' symbols and you'll win 8, 12 or 20 free spins respectively.
You'll then get a spinning wheel which has several multipliers showing 2x, 3x, and 5x.
There is one 10x multiplier on this wheel, but the odds of landing on it are small.
There's a 45% chance you'll get 2x multiplier, and 40% chance of a 3x multiplier. There is only a 10% chance of getting 5x multiplier and 5% chance of that magical 10x multiplier.
Still, that's not to say a 2x or 3x multiplier can't help move things along on this Epic City game, especially as the stacked wilds are more plentiful.
The Epic City mobile slot was surprisingly easy-playing fun. The fact that it's so very pretty helped, no doubt.
It's unlikely that it will captivate your attention for hours on end, it's flexibility on devices means you may fancy spinning a few safe spins in the hope to catch one of the two big features.
Meanwhile, this is still fun for a little day dream or two.
