Playtech's Cops N Bandits Video Pokie Review

April 25, 2014

 

Some themes never get old, especially if they have a new twist put on them. The idea of good vs. evil always does well, and so do other common motifs. The cops and robbers theme is one of them, and Playtech's Cops N Bandits video pokie is a good example of this motif done well. This game features two criminals Tiny George and Skinny Larry and they try to avoid getting caught by the cop Slim McThin. It's a funny game for some chances at some big payouts. With that having been said, this game is designed for players at medium and high stakes, so you might want to skip out on this game if you don't want to deal with the minimum bet size.

Cops N Bandits has 30 paylines across five reels. Coins range from $0.20 to $100 each to give this title a betting range of $6 to $3,000 per spin. As you can tell, this game is not geared towards low stakes players. We don't recommend playing this game with fewer than 30 coins because the bonus features will not activate, and you'll be out a ton of value. This game has a high volatility which is to be expected from games that target high stakes players.

The wild symbol pays out 4,000x if you get five of them on an activated payline. With 30 paylines activated, you'll have good chances of doing just that. Five of any of the three main characters will get you a solid 1,000x payout if it's for the policeman and 500x for either of the bandits. The payouts in this game are heavily weighted towards the top end of things since that's what historically has proven to make for the most popular games that target high stakes players.

The Police Badget is a scatter symbol, and it can help you to get up to 65 free spins. While you play these free spins, the thief symbol can become a wild that stays on the reels for the remainder of the bonus feature. If you get a thief on one of the three middle reels with a cop on the reel beside of it, then it will stay there. There's also a Line Up Bonus feature that gives you a shot at a pick-a-box style bonus feature if you get the Line Up Bonus symbol on three different reels.
