(16-07-2016) Important notice: The game developer Odobo, responsible for this online slot announced their very, difficult decision to close their business for good. See more online slots from other developers.
This Epic City slot takes place in 1937, you are sent to the city of the future. A futuristic city of bronze and gold with a skyline of tall buildings and flying airships. The various symbols are displayed on a large skyscraper. Maybe it’s the Empire State Building, which is also built in the 30’s. If you play this Epic City slot game with a desktop computer the symbols are a bit too small. When you play through mobile devices the reels are large enough. This game with 5 reels and 20 paylines shows various symbols with technical highlights from that period like a zeppelin, cruise ship, train, and a sports car. Usually every slot also has letters and numbers which are used as symbols. Game developer Odobo uses hearts, diamonds, spades and clover symbols for this title. There are also several bonus symbols added. Epic City has a Power Bonus with different levels, with this feature you can earn some extra cash prizes. With the Free Game symbol you can win up to 20 free spins! If you like to take some more risk with even greater rewards you should try the Gamble feature. Later in this review we will talk some more about the various bonus features. Win the jackpot by spinning 5 Wild symbols, you will be rewarded with 1000x your bet!
The vision of the past
In an original way Epic City illustrates how one thought about the future at that time. Huge skyscrapers of bronze and many gold accents. When we start this slot we hear music from the 30s, and a brief intro about the time in which the game takes place. The different symbols are projected on a large skyscraper, on the desktop we find the symbols a bit too small. We think this has something to do with the fact that the slots must be displayed properly both on mobile and desktop. Actually for the desktop version there has to be a function that players can zoom on the reels. The title Extinction from the same game developer offers that functionality. Odobo really knows how people then thought about the future. Some inventions which were still fairly new are featured. For example we see several zeppelins, one of them is showing different messages. Once we spin a winning combination the symbols are electrocuted and the payline is displayed. This slot offers 20 different paylines.
The main buttons are displayed very intuitively in the game. In the middle you will see a large button to start a new game round, the Autoplay feature can be found below. Select the numbers 5 up to 200 to automatically play that number of rounds with your current bet setting.
This slot offers GBP currency. The minimum bet for Epic City at Mr Green is GBP 0.20, this can be increased up to GBP 20. There are 6 bet variations between this.
This game also has a Gamble feature. This feature allows you to place an extra bet with the amounts that you have won. This button can be found on the right side of the screen and shows the picture of two dice. If you win a prize and click on this option you will find yourself in a new window. The statues on either side of the skyscraper hold a pearl. With the Gamble feature the pearls turn blue and red, pick a color and try to double your prize. But please note, you can also lose your prize if the wheel shows a different color. Use this option wisely.

Epic City is a slot with an original theme which is developed in a nice way. A great idea to display the reels on a large skyscraper. Too bad that this slot from Odobo has no ability to zoom in on the reels. On the desktop computer the symbols are a bit to small, on mobile devices it is fine. Check out the futuristic skyline of Epic City for yourself and win up to 1000x your bet!
