Theme, characters and environment
The game developer Play’n Go has done a wonderful job with this top-notch crime slot. We choose playing this entertaining game over watching a movie any day. It is action packed, exciting and fun, with typical characters, such as the criminal behind bars and the angry mug shot. The atmosphere in this game is really spot on.
History and background
There is an old slot, with actual spinning reels, that has the same name as this game. Many British players therefore recognize this title, as the game has been played in countless British pubs. Play’n Go did however choose an American city when they designed this game, and everything points to Chicago in the 50s. This is a natural choice for anyone who is into car chases, diamond robberies and escaping the cops.
Symbols and soundtrack
Cops ‘n’ Robbers is a really well-designed game, with cool symbols and an alarmingly good soundtrack. And yes, it includes police sirens. This game offers both a scatter and a wild, along with a bunch of other suitable symbols of theme related objects and characters. Symbols include the following:
- Bags of diamonds and money
- Hand cuffs and mafia style watches
- Robbers behind bars and mug shots
- Angry cops, expensive art, police cars
The symbols that keep on at the edge of your seat is the police car with the screaming siren, and the safe is also a very handy symbol, as it is the wild. Among the other symbols there are some nice surprises too. 5 bags of dollar bills give 750 coins, diamonds or jewels give 500 coins, the painting and watch gives 250 coins and when it goes sour, you get 150 and below. That means when the cop, the jailer, the mugshot or hand cuffs show up.
Music and sound effects
In the soundtrack we are offered very classic mafia movie tunes of really good quality, with distant police sirens in the background, as well as top notch sound effects. This is a slot game that has nailed the soundtrack extremely well, and it is impossible not to get hooked on the groovy rhythms. It is like being in a classy mafia bar and on the road at the same time. Where? Chicago, obviously. That is where it all went down back in the days when crime was all about diamonds, dollar bills, jewels, cracking safes and epic car chases.
This slot offers a highly entertaining bonus game, as well as a gamble feature that can be used on all wins, with the chance of doubling the win five times or get up to 2500 coins extra. The bonus game is a must, and even if you play for free we recommend that you keep on spinning until you get to that car chase. Loads of fun.
The bonus game in Cops ‘n’ Robbers slot game is really exhilarating, with cool graphics, a car chase that makes the heart beat faster and really good pay-outs and bonus functions. It is when you get at least three police cars (scatter) that the bonus game is activated, regardless of where they show up. This free spins bonus game is designed so that you are playing the bonus game from the inside of a car in the middle of a car chase. The wind screen of your car is full of bullets holes and completely smashed, so all you can see is what is behind you with the rear-view mirror, and in this way you can keep an eye on the police car that is chasing you. While the free spins are spinning you get to pick left and right turns to avoid getting caught. You will feel your heart beat.
For every win there is the option of using the gamble feature, so the question is if you want to gamble or collect your win. In the gamble bonus game it is possible to double the money up to five times or get as much as 2500 coins extra. It is a matter of choosing between red or black, or pick one of the four suits. Then a random card is picked from the deck and if your choice comes up, you have doubled your win with a colour pick, or four doubled your win with the right choice of suit.
The free spins bonus game car chase also gives the player the opportunity to double the win when the epic chase ends in a win. Five sirens give 15, 25 or as many as 100 free spins. In Cops ‘n’ Robbers the free spins can also be re-triggered with an additional 15 extra games per bonus symbol, up to 210 maximum spins for each free spins bonus.
The safe door is the wild, and it substitutes for all symbols except for the scatter, which is pretty standard. If you get 5 of these on one payline, you will win a whopping 3000 coins. 4 safe doors give 300 coins. And when the wild symbol is active it starts glowing and a stack of goldbricks appears. Wild also doubles all wins – always a good thing.
The scatter is represented by the cop cars with screaming sirens, and these are likely to be your favourite, as a minimum of three activates the exhilarating bonus game – the car chase. You will win 250 times your total spin amount if you get 5 of these anywhere on the screen.
Pros and cons of the slot
All in all, this is a timeless classic that we always have time for. There is a possibility of great rewards, in combination with a high level of entertainment and a very pleasing gaming experience. It really does exactly what it says on the tin, and does so very well. The main pros and cons are the following.
- Very exciting bonus game
- Gamble opportunity on all wins
- Great graphics
- Perfect soundtrack and effects
- 9 paylines is a bit restricted
- Would be great to see a sequel
- No progressive jackpot
There are a few other slot games with a similar theme, like the series of Cops’n’Robbers games from Novomatic, with the titles Cops’n’Robbers, Cops’n’Robbers Millionaires Row and Cops’n’Robbers Vegas Vacation. In our opinion this version from Play’n GO is far superior though.
