Who said the crime doesn’t pay? It certainly does at Rival’s Reel Crime 1 Slot. All you need is to plan the thing carefully. The big boss has offered you that job and man, he is a dangerous dude, so you better stay on your toes and follow the plan.
Tonight is the big day so remember to case the joint first. You also have to get a key. Up next is a tricky part of getting inside the bank. Then you have to blow the safe, so you could collect the money inside. The fourth stage is one of the most difficult parts, as you would have to get away with the dough.
If you worry about getting confused, don’t be. There is a great handy Game Map, so you could follow your progress and make sure everything is in order. The Map icon is in the upper-right corner of the reel screen. Check it whenever you feel like it. If you are clear on the goal now, then let’s figure out how we do this.
First, some gameplay basics. Reel Crime 1 is a five-reeler with 15 lines. You may choose how many lines to play on, using a Select Lines button at the bottom of the screen. Choose as many lines as you want. Even all fifteen at the same time. Then, you need to figure out the bet per line.
You may bet from one to five coins per line. Each coin may be worth anywhere from 0.01 to 1. So it looks like you may bet from anywhere from 0.01 to 75 per spin. Then, all you have to do is to make a spin. Do it manually or use an autospin option. Press the button once and enjoy a session of successive spins as long as you want it.
So spin and wait for the results. If you hit a matching combination of play icons on the line of your choice, then you win. But the first symbol of the combo should land on the very first reel, otherwise the combo wouldn’t count. All the wins are paid left to right only. Scatters here are the only exception, they are paid both ways and their wins are added to line wins.
So what are the combinations and how much are they worth? To figure this out, check the Paytable section of the slot’s menu. It’s in the upper left corner of the screen. But to give you a basic idea we’ll touch upon some winning combos here. All the paysymbol may be divided into regular and special ones.
Regular paysymbols are brass knuckles, a pair of men’s brogue boots, a fedora hat and some kind of truncheon. They are all worth 200x your line bet for the set of five. A combination of five bottles with three Xs on it is worth 250 times your bet. The same amount of mob-style violin cases is worth exactly the same. The gangster with a gun is paid more, for the set of five your line win gets multiplied 750 times.
All the aforementioned icons may form combinations of three, four or five of a kind. The bigger the combination, the better. The last regular symbol is a bag of loot. It’s awesome as the combinations with it start from at least two icons. For the set of five, you get your line win multiplied 500 times.
The second type of icons here, are special feature symbols. Here we have a Scatter. But the trick is, it’s different for every stage of the game. For the first part it’s a Tommy gun. If you land the set of three of them on the reels, you might get advanced to one of the followings scenes of the game play.
To figure out where you would go you have to take part at the Tommy Gun Bonus Round. It’s an interactive game, where you can shoot at different parts of the scene. Afterwards, depending on your success you might get advanced to the second scene. But if you were really good, you may be taken all the way to the fourth stage. It is the one where you escape from the bank.
For the second stage of the gameplay, there is another bonus feature. The goal of the second part of the game is getting into the bank without being caught. So right above the reels you will have two interactive scales, one with a Policeman icon and the other with a Robber icon. Land three or more Policeman symbols on the reels and the Policeman symbol on the scale will move forward.
But if you hit three Shoe symbols, it’s the other way around. It’s the Robber who will be moving forward. If you make to the end of the round without being caught by the policeman, then you will be forwarded to the Dynamite Bonus Round. If you get caught, then you will have to go through the Caught Bonus round before being sent to the very beginning of the game.
The Dynamite Bonus Round is a pick me game. Sort of. You will be given a choice of three vaults, place dynamite under one of them. If your choice was right, you would get some bonus points. But if the police catch you there is a Caught Bonus to deal with. You have to start all over from the game’s very beginning. But to sweeten the pot, you will have a chance to win some free spins and multipliers so starting over wouldn’t feel upsetting after all.
At the final stage of the game, there is also a bonus game called Choose-your-car Bonus round. The fourth is the last part of your assignment, where you have to flee from the police. The bonus is here to help you get a successful getaway. Just pick your getaway car and get some extra bonus loot on your game account.
As for the free spins, here at Reel Crime they are triggered by the Dynamite symbol. Hit two of those and get yourself one free spin. For the three, you may get five spins free of charge. If you land five icons, the house will pay for the next 25 spins. They all come with 5x multiplier. But free spins are not only about the dynamite, they are also about the getaway. Hit three getaway symbols and receive five spins free of charge, their multiplier is lower: only 3x.
You know what? Rival did it again. They have managed to create an exciting and gripping slot. It keeps your excitement coming and the suspense building up. The slot has some old-fashioned comic book flavor to it. And that is really charming. The intricate gameplay, the winning schemes and combination that keep on developing along with the game, are certainly a thumbs-up game strategy. So if you are ready, join in the bank heist but beware it is addictive.
