BGaming has presented the life of the cartel in its latest crime-fuelled slot release, Grand Patron


Out now


The cartel


Grand Patron is a 5×3 reel slot with 20-paylines and a maximum win of up to x10,000 the player’s wager. 




96.67 per cent


Low value symbols come in the form of cannabis leaves, mobile phones, uzi machine guns, cigars and packages. If the right number of winning combinations land on a single spin, these symbols can offer between x0.1 and x3 the player’s wager. 

Meanwhile, five cartel characters depicting the high value symbols, offering between x0.75 and x25 the player’s preferred stake. 

Police badge scatters are able to appear, awarding access to the free spins feature. 

Wild aeroplane symbols can also drop into play, substituting for all symbols other than the police badge scatters. 


Throughout the game, two bonus 1×1 reels sit above and below the game grid, revealing either paytable symbols, wilds, scatters or special game-enhancing features. 

If two identical paytable symbols appear in both additional 1×1 reels, a special symbol spawner feature will occur, where three of the same symbols are placed in random positions on the reels. 

When a dynamite bomb symbol appears in one of the 1×1 reels, and a standard paytable symbol appears in the other, every version of that symbol that appears on the main grid will explode, allowing for new symbols to drop in from the top of the reels. 

However, if a dynamite symbol appears in both 1×1 reels, every symbol on the main grid will explode after any initial wins have been awarded. 

The free spins game mode is awarded when a police badge scatters appear in both additional 1×1 reels. This will award 12 free spins. 

Additionally, a prison symbol can appear in the 1×1 reels. If the prison symbol appears while a paytable symbol sits in the other 1×1 reel, all versions of this symbol on the main grid will be locked into place while a free respin occurs around them. 

When prison symbols appear in both 1×1 reels, all symbols on the reels will be arrested before the game grid is filled with one random paytable symbol to provide an enhanced win. 

Multipliers can also appear in the 1×1 reels, awarding multipliers for wins with either specific symbols or any symbols on the main grid. 

Players can buy access to the free spins feature for x100 their stake. In this bonus game mode, the 1×1 reel will move to appear below the left-most reel. When a game-enhancing feature occurs in the 1×1 reel, it will extend both bonus reels to sit below reels one and two. 

This extending feature will reoccur with every bonus reel win, with the win potential increasing as the bonus reels get bigger. 

Players can also buy access to 15 free spins with one guaranteed prison symbol in the bonus 1×1 reels on the first spin for x250 their stake, or 15 free spins with two guaranteed prison symbols on the first spin for x1,000. 


Aliaksej Baliukonis, Game Designers Team Lead at BGaming, stated: “Just like a life of crime depicted in cartel movies, Grand Patron has twists and turns at every spin. Players who like unpredictable, high-volatility games will enjoy this release, which is one of our most feature-rich titles to date.”
