Crime Scene is a relatively new slot from the team at Net Entertainment. As you might have been able to work out from the cleverly worded title, this slot game is themed on a crime scene investigation (although, for legal reasons, we probably shouldn’t abbreviate that!)
The game has a standard video slot layout of 5 reels, with 3 visible symbols on each. Crime Scene has 15 paylines and the symbols are all associated with an investigation; from chalk outline J,Q,K and A; to fingerprints, guns, bloody footprints and of course a UV light + goggles set.
Crime Scene has an interesting take on its wild symbol – this is a police badge – and is “sticky”. Basically, if a wild appears in the playing area, it will stay there for up to the next 5 spins. The badge displays a number counting down the remaining spins.
3 fingerprint bonus symbols will activate the bonus game. This is a ‘pick one of these’ type bonus, where you have a grid of 30 computer files to click on. As you reveal the contents of these, you’ll win rewards. Find some ‘evidence’ and you’ll have bonus points added to each prize that you uncover from that point on. You can also uncover other items such as a ‘second chance’ which does exactly what you’d expect! When you’re out, you’ll have a choice of 4 envelopes – these contain an additional prize, or may even return you to the bonus game.
Crime Scene is a basic video slot, but with a coin value ranging from 0.01 to 1.00, you can either dial down your bet to extend your play time, or crank it up and go for it. The sticky wilds can be useful, particularly if you’re lucky enough to get them in a good position, or more than one at the same time, however, the big wins will probably come your way from a good bonus round.
As you might expect, the amounts you can reveal in the bonus game are dependent on the level of the bet that activated the round – the higher the bet, the more valuable the prizes in this game. What you’re really hoping for is to find some good evidence early, which can result in some chunky amounts.
The game has the standard Net Entertainment interface, with the green spin button centrally located at the base of the screen, and the well thought out autoplay function.
Crime Scene is another in a great line of slots from Net Entertainment. Not one if you’re a fan of complicated bonus games and features, but if you prefer something a little simpler that’s been well designed and put together, then Crime Scene might be the game for you.
