Bonnie & Clyde – In this slot, the tale of Bonnie and Clyde is further developed. Despite the fact that it performs well as a visual homage, the poor return on investment and moderate volatility imply that we’d prefer this slot machine be taken dead than alive.

Review of the film Bonnie and Clyde
Theme and plot of the story
When Bonnie and Clyde’s hideaway was raided and Bonnie’s poems and pictures were made public in the 1930s, they captivated the public’s interest. By the time they were killed in an ambush by the Texas Rangers, their fame had mostly faded, but later pop culture interpretations re-romanticized them for a new generation of viewers.
Given their previous existence as armed robbers, it only seems fair that the internet era should include their likenesses on a one-armed bandit of their own.
Graphics, sounds, and animations are all included.
A fully detailed depiction of the world of Bonnie and Clyde can be found in the slot’s backdrop, which features a stolen 1934 Ford Deluxe V-8, the automobile in which they were ambushed and slain by Frank Hamer.
In contrast, when we find Bonnie and Clyde on the reels, they are still very much alive, accompanied by a soundtrack that includes Tommy gun fire and police sirens, to be sure, but here Bonnie and Clyde are still looking as good as they have since Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway played them on the silver screen.
The animations are lively and appropriate, with the reel animations playing out against a backdrop of stray fifty-dollar notes to great effect. This slot has a fantastic visual appeal.
When compared to the visually stunning graphics, the gameplay is somewhat conventional. Four rows and fifty winlines are available on this five reel slot, which also has some interesting elements such as the Clyde symbols, which appear stacked on the reels and pay out both ways on the winlines.
In addition, there is a Free Spins bonus, which is discussed further below. However, owing to the high unpredictability of the game, this feature will only appear on rare occasions, and there isn’t even a gamble option to provide some variety to the way the game is played.
Wilds, bonuses, and free spins are all included in this game.
The Wild symbol may be used to replace any other symbol with the exception of the Bonus sign. They only appear on the second to fourth reels.
Three or more Bonus symbols appear on a single spin, and the Free Spin feature is triggered if the player receives three or more Bonus symbols on the same spin. In the case of three, four, and five Bonus symbols, the basic Bonus symbols will activate 10, 20, and 50 free spins, respectively.
Some Bonus symbols have a numerical value associated with them. This may be any of the following: +2, +5, +10, +20, or +50. If any of these numbered symbols appears on the reels and triggers the Bonus, that number is added to the total number of Free Spins awarded.
Bet sizes, return on investment (RTI), and variance
The return to player rate for Bonnie and Clyde is an awful slap in the face, coming in at just 95.10 percent. As a comparison, our average is roughly 96 percent, thus this falls well short of that mark.
There was a wide selection of wagers available on the site we tested, ranging from a minimum bet per spin of $/£/€0.20 up to a maximum stake per spin of $/£/€50.00. This is an awkwardly constrained range, which is a frequent characteristic of RedRakeGaming’s output, but it should cover the majority of the center of the bell curve for bet size preferences, if not all of it.
Because the volatility of this game is medium, it does not quite satisfy our liking for high-volatility video poker machines. We want increased volatility since it is more compatible with our slot techniques.
Bonnie and Clyde as a slot game may benefit from some tweaks, despite the fact that it is aesthetically appealing and conceptually powerful. Most players are unlikely to be bothered by the gameplay flaws, but the lower-than-average return on investment is likely to be a source of contention.
In light of this, potential participants must consider factors such as volatility; yet, in the instance of Bonnie & Clyde, the homicidal characters’ extremely unpredictable tempers do not convert into more than a medium degree of volatility.
Overall, then, we cannot recommend this game.
