If you’re looking to experience the rush of a police pursuit without actually having to escape from the fuzz, then Cops ‘n’ Robbers is the perfect slot game for you. Software provider Novomatic lets you step into the footsteps of a bad-ass thief looking to crack a big safe without getting caught. If you’re wondering how, let us fill you in on your mission below.
Cops ‘n’ Robbers is a 5 reel video slot with 20 paylines. Players can choose how many lines to play with, but of course it’s always best to play them all. The minimum bet starts at 0.01 per line, meaning you can start your heist for as little as 0.01. You can bet a maximum of 2.00 per line, which means high rollers can bet a nice 40.00 per spin. There is no Max Bet button, but fortunately the bets are easily adjusted. There is also a handy Auto Play button which automatically spins the reels against your chosen bet until you hit ‘Stop’.
As for the design of the game, the Cops ‘n’ Robbers online slot is fairly basic. The reels are white, set against a blue background with a dark city skyline on top. The music and sound effects go well with the overall theme of the slot. When spinning the reels for example, you will hear a fast melody implying how nerve wrecking it is to crack a safe... How well do you deal with stress?
Now you may wonder if it’s worth to go through all this trouble and we’re telling you it is. Apart from standard low value symbols (10, J, Q, K and A), the Cops ‘n’ Robbers slot also contains a handful of interesting high paying symbols in the form of a sexy robber, a cop and a police car and judge. Landing five police cars or judges will have you walk away with anywhere between 7.50 and 1500, depending on how much you bet.
After every win, you’re given the opportunity to gamble your winnings in order to double or quadruple the amount. This is achieved by drawing a card and guessing if it’s going to be red or black. The maximum amount you can gamble depends on your stake.
As for bonus features, Cops ‘n’ Robbers is fully loaded with wilds, scatters and bonus features. The wild is represented by a police dog and can substitute any symbol to complete a winning combination, apart from the bonus symbols. Wins containing 1, 2, 3 or 4 wilds pay double the standard win.
Landing 3, 4 or 5 siren symbols will trigger the free spins bonus, awarding 15, 25 or 100 free spins respectively. During the free spins, it’s possible to win additional free spins or to trigger other bonuses. All wins are tripled, except 5 wilds. The next bonus is the Safe Cracker Bonus which is triggered when landing 3, 4 or 5 safe symbols anywhere on the reels. During this bonus, the player has to pick a safe in order to reveal a prize.
The third and final bonus is called the Hot Pursuit Bonus. This bonus is activated when landing 3, 4 or 5 Cops ‘n’ Robbers symbols anywhere on the reels. The Hot Pursuit Bonus is an actual bonus game where players have to roll the dice in order to move the robber around and help him escape from the cops. Rewards are earned as you go. If you get caught, there’s an I.D Parade and the bonus ends.
All in all, Novomatic has done a fantastic job with this cartoon-like online slot game. With a fun theme and three very rewarding bonus features, it’s no surprise that many players are willing to have a crack at it!
