Players, here's an iGaming milestone - Peaky Blinders, developer Pragmatic Play's first branded slot. The studio chose the bold British television show Peaky Blinders, an inspiring choice. Besides being massively popular, the show has a tough gangster demeanor that should translate well to the reels. Add in a few Peaky Blinders gambling references and you're pretty much into phase three, right? Let's see.
If you haven't seen the show, Peaky Blinders is a period drama set in Birmingham between the two World Wars. He follows the ambitious Shelby crime family as they use whatever means necessary to gain wealth and power. It's the sort of West Midlands mob story with fantastic hats if you ignore the razors sewn into it.
The game itself follows a more formulaic model. Pragmatic Play has set up a 5-reel, 20-payline playground in a back street, a completely gray slot and a smoky field. The music in the show plays in the background giving the game a nice Peaky atmosphere. As for the overall design, we feel that Pragmatic was inspired by the masters of the Microgaming genre for its first branded slot.
