Appearance and Sound Effects

Loaded PI takes you into the murky underworld of a 1940's private investigator, who you can see standing to the right-hand side of the reels wearing a brown trench coat and trilby hat, and holding his pistol as he peers into the dimly lit side street at his target's getaway vehicle. As you spin the reels, swing music begins to play (N.B., think of the theme to the Naked Gun movies but without the slapstick humour).  

Film noire-inspired graphics are used for the paytable symbols, which include a magnifying glass, a detective's badge, a female singer crooning into a microphone, a black car, the private investigator, a plump gangster, a "Spins" icon, and five playing card symbols – 10, J, Q, K, and A.

Bonuses and Special Features

Loaded PI isn't a tough case to crack, as its special features are limited to a wild symbol and a free spins bonus.

The hero of Loaded PI – the private investigator – plays the wild symbol, and he can help you make winning combos by substituting for any symbol other than the Free Spins symbol.
Land three, four or five "Spins" symbols anywhere on the screen, and you're awarded fifteen, twenty-five or fifty free games respectively. You can also trigger more free games within the bonus should enough "Spins" symbols appear.

To earn the top jackpot of 1,000 times your bet, you'll need to get five Loaded PI symbols across an active payline. ,


Loaded PI uses five reels, three rows of symbols, and twenty-five non-fixed paylines, and boasts an impressive RTP (Return to Player Rate) of 96.3%. The game lets you create winning combinations using matching symbols in succession from the leftmost reel to the rightmost reel.
