New Cops And Robbers Online Slot
March 26, 2017
The cops and robbers theme has been extremely popular in online pokies. There have been some great titles like Bust the Bank from Microgaming and Cops N Bandits from Playtech. But the new video pokie from Microgaming outdoes the others by a fair margin. It is titled The Heat is On. Its uniqueness is that both main characters are females. The elusive cat burglar is Selina and the cop is Officer Jean from the Special Task Force. You can play this online pokie at All Slots, Royal Vegas and 32Red.
The visual depiction of the femme fatales is perfect. The masked Selina carries a crowbar and rope. The uniformed Jean is armed with a pistol and pink handcuffs. In the win animations you can see them taunting each other. The confrontation between them is a battle of equals. Both are wild symbols but do not substitute for each other. Each awards the top line payout of 1000 coins when five like symbols appear on an active payline. The only time they come together is when they pay smaller amounts in mixed combinations. The other thematic symbols are shared by the buxom heroines. Selina has the explosive device, the gold slabs and the getaway motor bike. Jean has a helicopter and police car.
The bank, which is the scene of the action, is the scatter symbol. As usual, it awards payouts multiplied by the total bet. But in a departure from the norm, in The Heat is On you can get scatter payouts for up to seven symbols. This happens because the scatter symbol can appear stacked on the reels. The scatter payouts are not that great, the maximum being three times the total bet. However, you are likely to hit the scatter payouts more often. Three, four or five scatter symbols anywhere on the reels trigger 5, 10 or 20 free spins. These can be enhanced. Two scatter symbols on reel 2 or on reel 4 double the number of free spins. Two scatter symbols on reel 2 and on reel 4 multiply the number of free spins by four. This way you can win up to 80 free spins. The free spins can be retriggered.
The Heat is On has fixed 45 paylines, but the total bet is 50 times the line bet. This should be acceptable, given the attractive features on offer. The coin size ranges from AU$0.01 to AU$2.00 and you can wager up to 10 coins per payline. The maximum line bet is AU$20 and the maximum total bet is AU$1,000.
