Reel Heist Slot Review
Like most casino software providers, Red Tiger Gaming has developed their own bank heist-themed slot. Reel Heist, with its 2,000x your total stake non-progressive jackpot, is a rich game, in both graphics and features. This slot is based on the traditional cop and robbers theme and features 5 reels, 4 rows and 40 paylines. Betting gets underway for as little as $0.20 per spin, and if you wish, you’re free to up the ante, too, with wagers rising as high as $500 a game if you want to push the boat out.
Theme and Symbols
As mentioned, there is a distinct bank robbery theme to the Reel Heist slot. Many of the symbols which appear on the reels of this game, though, don’t really contribute to the theme, and these include the high playing card icons. Those 10s through Aces symbols can still deliver more than respectable wins ranging from 4x up to 200x your total bet, though.
As for the more thematic icons, the sunglasses, handcuffs, police hat and badge symbols can disperse wins which range from 16x your total bet up to 1,000x your total bet. Wild symbols can help contribute to the major wins in the game, but only when they play a part in the Wild Cop special feature. Those wins can be worth as much as the 2,000x multiplier non-progressive jackpot.
Wild symbols appear as wild cops, and they can substitute for all other symbols in the game. These icons can also trigger a Wild Cop feature. In this bonus, the cop will chase a thief with his baton. If he catches him, he will stun the robber. He could then throw his baton across the reels for several spins, allowing him to catch multiple criminals and this offer multipliers which can deliver the non-progressive prize.
Each robber has his own multiplier prize (ranging from 32x up to 2,000x) so big winnings are assured if you land the wild cop and robber symbols at the same time.
Reel Heist Bonus
As we’ve stated, the wild symbol offers up the only bonus in this game, so if you’re hoping to walk away with big wins, this is the only way you’re going to land them. This slot could have been a tad better (such as if it had a free spin bonus) but the half-price wagering range and the surplus of multipliers could, arguably, be considered bonuses in their own right.
Our Take on Reel Heist
When it isn’t delivering gigantic wins with its Wild Cop feature, Reel Heist is wowing you with its graphics. There’s much to be liked about the game that Red Tiger Gaming has developed, and it is fully mobile-friendly. Reel Heist offers value for money in the sense that you get 40 lines for wagers costing half what was expected, too, and nobody will turn their nose up at that.
