Familiarise Yourself with the Works of Art
As the game’s detective, you’ll need to know what you’re looking for, and you’ll be able to do this by familiarising yourself with Rembrandt’s various pieces of art, some of which appears on the five reel and three row interface. The starting icons are offered up in the form of the regularly seen A, Q and K symbols, while the next three are some of the artist’s paintings. These exist in the form of Self-Portrait at the age of 63, Portrait of a Young Girl and A Bust of a Man in a Gorget and Cap. Finally, the game’s logo makes up the very last icon, and each of these have been designed with some very high quality graphics as well.
In addition to this layout, the developer has also added a total of 20 different pay lines. However, you do have the chance to customise this particular feature, and this is done with the up and down arrows to the right of the ‘Lines’ box. Furthermore, you can also adjust the amount of the wager that you place per spin, which is achieved by changing the bet amount that you place per line. This offers up a choice of between $0.01 and $10, so if you have all of the 20 different pay lines active, you’re able to place a maximum overall bet of $200 per spin.
Seek Out the Paintings
A super sleuth is always in need of a little bit of help, and what better way to find the thieves than by using some of the game’s special features? You’ll be able to see the first speciality in action as soon as you start forming wins on the reels, because you’ll get to witness the ‘Tumbling Reels’ in motion. Any win will first give you your pay out and then the icons included within will all disappear from the reels. This will leave spaces for other symbols to fall into from the top of the screen, and this will offer you the possibility of forming more wins, which will set the tumbling reels off again.
Furthermore, there’s the addition of a wild icon in this game as well, which is represented by the symbol stating the word, ‘WILD’. As such, it will stand in for any other symbol on the reels in order to form a win, except for the bonus icon, and it can only appear on reels two, three and four.
Finally, if you’re spinning the reels and you manage to bring three ‘BONUS’ icons into view on reels one, two and three of an active pay line, you’ll trigger the freespins bonus round. For this, you’ll be given a total of six freespins, and during this round, three different paintings are used – An Old Man in Military Costume, Portrait of a Young Man and Artemisia. These paintings are scatter icons during freespins, so a pay out is received wherever they should show up.
This game is very similar to the other artist-based products from High 5 Games, and as such, it has a pretty nice theme behind it. What’s great about these offerings though, is that even though they’re part of the same kind of series, the developer hasn’t included the exact same special features in them all.
