Set in a dark and quiet street, the criminal is staking out the building that hides the loot. Buildings climb high up into the sky on the left and right of the screen, with very dim street lights to light his path. He loves to work under the cover of darkness though, so be prepared for when he makes an appearance. The reels of the game are placed centrally with the control panel sitting beneath. As the reels spin, a cheesy tune will play out – this will change to alert sounds when a win falls into place.
Sheriff, his sexy colleague, the criminal, the hound and police car are among the symbols on the reels. You’ll also find a police car, pistol, radio, handcuffs, master key, shades, a necklace and a bravery award spinning around.
Reward Means Big Cash
Capture the criminal and you’ll receive a bravery award. All you need is five of these bravery awards on your payline and that 2,500x non-progressive jackpot is all yours. Minimum stakes of 0.50 will return a 1,250 jackpot – but if you are a high roller, a 250.00 stake could net you a tasty 625,00 jackpot. High value symbols on the reels include; sheriff with a 1,000x multiplier, sexy colleague with a 450x multiplier and the criminal with a 200x multiplier.
Stop Those Slot Bonuses!
The bravery award is the wild symbol and does what a wild does best – it replaces other symbols (except scatter) to help form winning combinations. You only need two on your payline to trigger a prize.
Your scatter symbol is the necklace, three in view will trigger a cash prize and the free spins bonus. Depending on the amount of scatter symbols on your payline, will determined how many free spins you get:
- Three symbols awards 10 free spins
- Four symbols awards 15 free spins
- Five symbols awards 25 free spins
During your free spins, should the criminal land on reel 1 and a police car on reel 5 – the ‘Find the Necklace’ bonus will be triggered.
The ‘Find the Necklace’ bonus requires you to pick from the objects on the careen to win multipliers. When you find the necklace, the bonus game ends but you will be given more free spins as a reward.
