Jackpots:

Reel Heist has an RTP of 95% making it a medium volatility game, so expect moderate sized payouts pretty regularly. There aren’t any jackpots attached to the slot – regular or progressive – so massive payouts might not be in the reels on this one, but you can still hit the 2000x stake multiplier which is pretty exciting in our books.

Special Features and Bonuses:

The one special feature of this game is incorporated pretty into regular play pretty, so while it might not sound like the game provides much (it’s true, there aren’t any Scatters or Bonus Games) this feature actually makes up for quite a lot:

  • Wild Cop Feature: land a Wild Cop symbol and watch as he moves from reel to reel chasing the bad guys that show up on your screen. Each robber has a different stake multiplier and the Wild Cop will move across the reels until he catches up with the robber that’s on the loose. The Wild Cop can hit robbers with his baton to stun them and keep them in place for for more spins, making them easier to catch. Once caught, you’re rewarded with the multiplier that the robber was holding!

Graphics and Sounds:

Get ready for an exciting chase game with Reel Heist. As you play, enjoy the upbeat music of classic car chase movie – a sort of Blues Brothers-styled, fast-paced jam. Things stay fairly mellow until the Wild Cop shows up on the board and starts raking in the cash. Just before a robber shows up, he pops into the screen from the side with his reward stake… if the Wild Cop comes to catch up with him, the game turns dark and the red and blue lights at the top of the screen start flashing – time for a chase! If and when Wild Cop catches the robber, there’s a kerfuffle of hands and feet in a ball of dust as the robber is taken down, and you’re taken to a cop car screen which highlights your winnings.

Conclusion:

For a seemingly simple slot, Reel Heist has quite a twist to it – the Wild Cop actually on the chase keeps the game exciting and fun. Plus, the opportunity to win a big stake multiplier, even on a medium variance game is quite nice. We say: keep chasing those robbers!
