The Crime Scene Video Slot Game
Crime Scene is a video slots game designed and developed by Net Entertainment, also and more commonly known as NetEnt. As its name might suggest, this video slots game focuses on a crime scene, and offers its players the chance to solve a pretend crime while playing for real money.
The game offers its players five reels and fifteen pay lines to play on. It operates much like any other standard slot machine, allowing players to bet up to ten coins per pay line, with winning combinations formed by landing matching symbols from the left to the right on any active pay line.
The Crime Scene Theme and Symbols
The theme of Crime Scene, as said, is that of an actual crime scene. The symbols match the theme. There are some very theme-specific symbols, such as the guns, a bloody footprint, and crime scene equipment. The game also uses standard poker value playing cards as symbols. These are also true to the theme, as the value of the card is written in chalk on a pavement.
The highest paying symbol is that of the bloody footprint. Matching five bloody footprints on an active pay line will reward players with the top cash payout of seven hundred and fifty coins.
Crime Scene Bonus Features
There are two bonus features in the Crime Scenes video slots game. The first is a mini bonus game that takes place on the actual reels, while the second is a separate investigation bonus round.
The first mini bonus game, which takes place on the reels, centres on the sticky wild. The wild symbol in the Crime Scene video slots game is represented by the police badge symbol. This police badge wild will act as a regular wild symbol in that it can substitute any of the other symbols, allowing players to complete as yet incomplete pay lines, make up the best possible winning combinations, and receive the highest possible payouts. The police badge wild also has two other special features. Firstly, all wins that the police badge wild symbol forms a part of will come with a three-time multiplier, giving players the potential of huge wins. Secondly, the police badge wild symbols are sticky, and they will remain on the reels for up to five spins. The exact number of spins the badge will be sticky for is indicated on the badge number. This will count down as the number of spins where the wild remains sticky decreases.
The second bonus feature is the investigation bonus round. Once this game is launched, players will be taken to a second screen and presented with a five-by-six grid of file folders. Players then need to click on any number of these file folders.
Here, a number of things may happen. The player may be rewarded with an instant cash payout. The player may also unlock some evidence. Each piece of evidence has a value, which the player will receive as a cash payout. The value of the evidence collected is then added to every further win received during the bonus round. Players may also reveal an X symbol. This will end the bonus game, but first it will give players the chance to select one of four envelopes. These will either give them a cash reward or send them back to the bonus round. Players may also reveal a ‘second chance’ symbol. This can be taken as surety against a future X symbol.
