Crime Scene Slots

Crime-SceneCrime Scene takes a rather overused theme and makes a pretty decent game out of it, Net Entertainment being known for the quality of their work and for being able to transform even a boring topic into something exciting. The action takes place in the back of some alley, with cracked windows and dumpsters visible next to the reels. The symbols are mostly pieces of equipment that are used by the police, chalk letters on the asphalt and the crime related images. An enjoyable game all things considered, but Net Ent has quite a few games that they’ve placed a lot more effort in than into this one.

All the action in Crime Scene takes place on just 15 lines, all of them on 5 reels. A $7,500 jackpot is the most you can walk away with, while among the slot’s features you will discover scatter symbols, wilds and bonus games.

Features of Crime Scene

The only two major features of Crime Scene are its sticky wild and a bonus symbol with scatter abilities. The multiplier of the sticky wild makes it a great symbol to have around.

The Police Badge wild is a sticky symbol, meaning that whenever it appears it will remain in place for a number of spins, up to 5 of them if you’re lucky. With the exception of the bonus, the wild is going to substitute for any other symbol in Crime Scene. Getting multiple sticky wilds doesn’t give you more spins, so they will remain in place for the same number of rounds.


Bonus Game

The Fingerprints Bonus symbol is a scatter, which can trigger a bonus game no matter in what position it appears, as long as there are a minimum of three of them on the reels.

Once the game loads, you will discover a screen filled with folders. It’s a disappointing bonus game to be honest, where all you have to do is click on these folders and you win prizes. You can keep clicking on the folders and you will get either cash prizes, evidence symbols or a red X. The game ends either when you hit the red X, where you are asked to pick an envelope that gives you a final reward, or when you are done collecting evidence symbols (four of them needed).


Betting options and jackpots

There are two things you can work with when the bets are being formed, the number of coins and their denomination. The number of lines is always at 15, so this is not a game where you can play with only one active line. You can use 15 to 150 coins in your bets, with 1 to 10 coins per payline. Denominations range from $0.01 to $1, with bets limited at $150.

As for the biggest prizes offered, they will give you 750 times the line bet, or 7,500 coins. It’s the same amount in cash, so the happiest day you can have while playing this slot is when you win $7,500.

Design and symbols

The design of Crime Scene might be a modern one, but it’s not terribly attractive or varied enough. It has high quality symbols, they all look good individually, but the design doesn’t seem to work out that great, probably because of the playing cards and their design, with chalk letters on the pavement. All the other symbols appear to be computer made, with pictures that could almost pass as photos and not computer generated images.

Symbols: Police Badge (wild), Fingerprints (scatter), Bloody Shoeprint (750x), Orange Goggles (400x), Briefcase (200x), Handgun (200x), Ace (50x), King (40x), Queen (40x), Jack (30x) and 10 (30x).


Is It Worth Playing?

The sticky wild is the best feature, and it makes up for the rather boring bonus game, but the overall design is simply not good enough to be able to recommend this slot over other titles from Net Entertainment.

You will find Crime Scene at any online casino which chooses to use software from Net Entertainment, playable either for free or for real money.
