A Microgaming slot machine, Cops And Robbers offers you a classic experience, which mixes the 3 reels system with a much more busy design than you’re probably used to, and with more features than these games tend to have. The theme which follows robbers as they do their usual job, and cops which do the same thing, is far from unusual, but this particular slot machine is unlike any other regular classic in the way it works. The features give you a very interesting bonus game and a nudge system. You get 3 reels and 1 line, with a prize of $5,000.
Betting and Prizes
Only one payline is used by Cops and Robbers. You are also asked to use only one coin, so that’s not something that you can fiddle with. However, you are allowed to modify the value of that coin, as long as you work within the given range of $0.10 to $10.
Rewards in the base game will give you 500 coins if you get three Robbers on the payline, so you can win $5,000 from them.
Cops And Robbers Slot Features
One thing that you will find useful in this game is the Nudge system. This is typically employed when you have two matching symbols on a payline, while the third one that is needed is visible just above or below it. That third symbol will be moved by one position, nudged into place so that you can get your prize.
The second feature is a bonus game. To trigger it, three Money Bag symbols need to be visible on the reels, without being required to be on the payline. You can have them scattered around, as long as you have enough of them.
A new screen loads for the bonus game, one where you see a board game style feature. You start from the bottom right corner, and you have to arrive to the 200x prize from the top left corner. Along the way you will win various other prizes, you will get spins with guaranteed wins, up to 50 nudges and you will activate various bonus games (Inside Job, Whistle Blower, Swag or No Swag, Doing Time, It’s A Fair Cop and Costa Del Cash are among them).
Theme & Design
There are plenty of details to pay attention to on the main screen, since the reels are surrounded with information on the paytable, the way to trigger the feature and the nudge system. The background shows you a bunch of robbers which try to hide from the cops.
The feature is the best part, thanks to all the bonus games and wins which you can get as you advance towards the goal. This style of game is used in quite a few other titles from Microgaming, so if you enjoyed it look at the others as well.
