Downtown Slots

This slot by 1×2 Gaming is a visually impressive game. It takes you to the
underworld of the big city and throws you in the mix with many of the
undesirables who live outside of the law. The game is reminiscent of the movie
and comic book Sin City. Both were huge fan favorites and have somewhat of a
cult following.

When you enter the game you’re greeted with a panoramic view of the city’s
skyline. The rain is pouring and the sky is being lit up by lightning strikes.
This is all topped off when you see the reels for the first time. The graphics
on this game are great. They’re so similar to the ones associated with Sin City
you would almost think you were reading the comic.

Everything about the reels screams crime world. From the use of black, red,
and orange for the symbols background, to the bullet holes found in the poker
symbols on the reels. If you’re a fan of the comic or just like the genre of
crime dramas this game just might be for you.

Downtown Slot Machine Overview

Atmosphere / Background

The game takes place in the dark corners of the city’s underworld. The
background houses a beautiful skyline view of skyscrapers lit up in the night.
The skyline fades to black as you get closer to street level. This leaves the
impression you’ve just dropped into the dark world of crime that most people try
to avoid.

The reels are not framed in by anything other than the pay line labels. Each
symbol is displayed in a square on the five reels. This almost gives the reels a
feel of a police lineup that you’re being asked to review to identify a suspect.

The colors used to make this game are perfect for the theme. The blending of
the red, black, and oranges gives the feel of bad things to come.

Music and Sound Effects

The only sounds you hear in the background of the game are the sounds of the
city. You hear a police siren come through every once in a while just to keep
you and the other criminals on your toes. The reels have a spinning sound along
with the docking of the symbols. The majority of the sound comes when you hit a
win on a pay line. You hear a quick high note piano trill every time you get a
win and a low note piano trill when the spin is unsuccessful.

All though there’s no music, the constant city sounds can get a little on the
annoying side. We didn’t have to mute the game but can see where some others
might find the need to do so.


Animations on this game are all but obsolete. This game doesn’t have any over
the top symbol animations when you get a win. The most you get is when a wild is
part of a winning combination the police tape flashes. The rest of the symbols
flash as if they’re under a strobe light.

The bonus game offers the most animation found in the game and it’s still on
the limited side compared to most other games. What’s different is that the win
announcer is where you find a bunch of extra animation that you don’t see in
other games.

When you have big wins in Downtown the black bar above the spin button
flashes and have a border run around it. When you have epic wins it doubles in
size and has a fire blazing around it. It’s a little strange to see this amount
of animation focused here but it works for the game.

Downtown Pay Table and Graphics

Symbols and payouts for Downtown are as follows:

Lady Smoking

She is the free spin scatter for this game. When you get three
or more of this symbol on any pay line you’ll trigger the free spins. You’re
given a different number of free spins based on the number of symbols on the pay
line. You’ll receive 5 spins when you get a combination of 3, 10 spins with a
combination of 4, and 15 when you get 5 in a combination. Any wins achieved
during free spins are doubled and added together.

Police Tape

The wild symbol for Downtown is the word “Wild” surrounded by
police tape. The background of the symbol looks like a murder victim. This
symbol like most others will sub for any symbol to make a winning combination.
It can sub for multiple symbols at the same time on different pay lines and pays
the highest payout possible.

Cage Crime Scene

The bonus symbol for this game appears to be a crimes
scene. This symbol has two functions. When you get three or more anywhere on the
reels you’ll trigger the bonus game. If you get three or more bonus symbols on a

45 times for a combination of 3, 200 times for a combination of 4, and 750 times

Symbol Graphics

The symbols designed for this game were well designed to bring the underworld
to life. With the comic book style graphics reminiscent of Sin City this game
will develop a following of fans. The symbols used to represent the poker hand
cards look like targets splattered with bullet holes. The remaining symbols are
characters you might see in the comic.

Downtown Slot Extra Feature

The special features for Downtown are great. You get two chances to get extra
wins including a trip to a different game to try and increase your chance for
big money.

The first special feature is the free spin scatter. This symbol rewards you
with multiple free spins when you get three or more on any given pay line. While
you’re in your free spins you’ll still be eligible for wilds to help you win
more, plus all the wins are doubled.

The next feature that makes the game worth playing is the bonus game. The
bonus game is triggered when you get 3 or more of the bonus symbol anywhere on
the reels and you’re whisked away to a shooting range. You need to try out your
aim by shooting at five different targets at different distances; the more you
hit the higher your score.

The bonus not only triggers a new fun game, it also has a payout value of its
own. If you get three or more bonus symbols on a pay line you’ll receive an
extra pay out along with your trip to the bonus game.

Betting Options

Downtown offers you 25 pay lines. The pay lines on this game are not fixed so
you’re able to decide how many pay lines you want to play each spin. Of course
playing them all is the default for the game.

Having the option to choose pay lines may seem like a great idea, but we
recommend that you don’t reduce the amount of pay lines being played. The game
is set up with the 25 pay lines to give you the best chance at getting a winning
combination. There’s no way to determine when the next win will hit or what line
it will be on so don’t take the chance and miss out on a win.

This game offers you the ability to change the value of your bet after each
spin. The range of betting is set from .01 to $.50 per coin being used. You can
change how many coins are being played on each spin. You have a choice to use
one coin per spin and up to five coins per spin.

These betting options allow for anyone to play this game without having to
resort to a life of crime. The high rollers might shy away because of the
limited risk involved in these games betting options but that may not bother
some of them who just love to play.

Game Rules

Downtown game rules are in line with most other 5 reel slot machines. Below
are the main rules:

  • Most wins are formed from right to left, beginning with the leftmost
  • If two or more wins are formed in the same line, only the highest payout
    is awarded.
  • Any misuse or malfunction will abort the game and everything will be
    reset to default.
  • The wild card cannot start free spins; you must get three or more
    scatter symbols to receive free spins.
  • Scatter symbols will trigger free spins from any pay line
  • Bonus game will be triggered when three or more bonus symbols appear on
    a normal win line from left to right.
  • The wild will sub for all symbols except the scatter and bonus symbols.
  • The scatter symbols also have a payout amount when it appears on a win


Downtown slots will be a winner for those who love the comic book world and
all that it entails. With the different symbols so close to those seen in the
cult classic Sin City, fans will find themselves slipping into a world of crime
and death.

The special features keep you wanting more. With the free spins and wilds
that help build your winnings there isn’t much more you could ask for. That
isn’t where 1×2 Gaming stopped though; they gave you a cool shooting game as a
bonus just to keep the theme going. What criminal doesn’t take the time to
practice their shot? The more you play the better you’ll get, which can only
mean bigger prizes.

It’s important to remember that even though this game is fun to play you need
set a budget to stick to. You don’t want to be one of those players that gets
lost in the game searching for that big win and ends up losing everything. Slots
are not made to make us big winners and we shouldn’t go into the game thinking
we’ll become one. Playing for fun is the best policy.
