Slot tester's review: Martin Anastasov

Online slots about cops and robbers remind me of black and white comedy movies involving clowns and random people taking a cake to their face. Lo and behold, Reel Heist by Red Tiger Gaming does have its funny moments and the graphics play to that tune with every spin. But there is nothing 'funny' about the maximum payout, which can get as high as 2,000x your bet.

Reel Heist nails on the head every stereotype about grinning robbers and panting coppers vying to dominate the reel set. While I don't find the graphics particularly engaging, the gameplay is quite entertaining because it provides you with a chance to slam a big payout. On the other hand, Red Tiger Gaming hasn't furnished the game with an extra feature so you can expect a pacier reel adventure and decent symbol payouts.

Theme and Graphics

In terms of graphic design, Red Tiger Gaming has done a great job at animating the robbers' symbols. These and the wild are the highlights of Reel Heist because they light up the reel set and because they can interact with one another towards the potential big reward multiplier.

The reel set represents a posh street that attracts an assortment of characters who are looking for an easy, and highly risky, way to earn bigger cash. By day, the street seems more at peace but once the houses are steeped in nightly shadows, the robbers emerge to operate and the cop is ready to throw his trusty baton.

Now just what in the world does all this mean? The lively characters and their antics on the reel set are part of Reel Hest's feature play, which is really a semi-extra feature, but one where you can land a big win or a succession of wins nevertheless.

Extra Features

The wild is the symbol that makes the game, together with the robber symbols that is. The wild is represented by a moustached cop who is hiding a doughnut underneath the officer's hat, but he can also substitute for any of the standard paying symbols plus catch a robber.

  • The extra feature is a completely random game of cat and mouse between the cop and the robbers. I haven't seen this concept to have been implemented in another online slot so I can say that Red Tiger has come up with something that is obvious and still made it work as the leading feature of Reel Heist.
  • Reel Heist describes precisely what is going on. Once a robber enters the street suddenly night falls and the player gets a chance to land the prize that is shown on the Reward card on either one of the robber symbols.
  • The way in which the latter can unfold is an excellent visual representation of cop and robber run-in, as far as online slots can go. So the cop's wild symbol goes after the robber symbol. Both can shift positions on the reel set, but sometimes the robber symbol can fall asleep so that the wild can get closer to it.
  • Catching a robber can happen in another way: the wild symbol gets into character and chucks a baton at the robber symbol. If the latter gets hit, you, the player, gets the win multiplier from that symbol.

I enjoyed playing Reel Heist because I didn't have to wait for the usual three scatter or bonus symbols to trigger the extra feature. In Reel Heist there only needs to be one robber symbol in view for the street to sink in twilight and become staging ground for the ensuing chase.

Overall, I found the feature to be quite engaging because you can get it on any spin and as long as the robber is in view, you're staying in that mode.

Bets and Payouts

Red Tiger Gaming has enabled 20c spins as the minimum wager even though Reel Heist has 40 fixed paylines. The payline arrangement enables multiple payouts to crop up from the same bet. What's more exciting than that is the payout structure.

The robbers' symbols can pay amazing amounts, but these can only interact with the wild symbol. Nevertheless, the paytable shows exciting possibilities as the petty thief, which is the one that's to occur most frequently on the reels, can pay up to 32x your bet.

The next two robbers in terms of value can pilfer up to 64x and 80x your bet from the random number generator. And the last two robbers on the scale of potential payouts are the two moustached, with payouts of up to 128x and 2,000x your bet.

Regular symbols can pay amounts that can be expected from a dynamic game like Reel Heist. The royal cards symbol category, which includes the ten card too, can pay between 4x and 200x your payline bet. Winning outcomes for four matching symbols can amount more than the bet and these aren't that rare to crop up.

The high-paying symbols, on the other hand, can pay between 16x and 1,000x your bet. The most lucrative symbols are the police officer's hat and his police badge. These can pay between 32x and 1,000x your bet. Not without a coincidence, these are the only two symbols for which I didn't get a winning combination consisting of five symbols.

Conclusion

One of the main reasons why I like games by Red Tiger is because the company is transparent about the volatility and hit rate levels for their games.

Reel Heist comes with medium to high volatility level and a frequent hit rate. Now don't go on expecting it's going to be a win on every turn, but the game doesn't arrange for long draughts and that's the positive thing about Reel Heist.

But what had me interested in this game in the first place was how quickly it can switch from daytime, which means base game, to night time, which means the chance for a big win.

    I see life as a chance occurrence, like a one in a gazillion probability that there is a planet within the Goldilocks zone that can support life. Isn't this kind of a jackpot for humankind? Besides science and a good laugh, I like games of chance. I've played on more than 150 slots in the past three years and learned what they do and how they work. I may write a review now and then about some of the slots I come across on my igaming journey. Hopefully, some of the players out there are going to find my opinion useful. Keep it chancy, and best of luck!
