Cops ‘n’ Robbers is a pretty simple affair, both in terms of looks and features – the imagery has a retro 1950s America feel – picture the high camp cops and baddies from the original Batman series and you’ll get the idea. Symbols on the reels include handcuffs, a stripe shirted villain, a prisoner behind bars and a truncheon wielding cop.
Joining them are assorted swag including watches, paintings, jewellery, diamonds and bags of cash. The moneybags are the biggest payers, offering 83.33 times your stake for a 5-symbol combo. The images are cartoon style and work well in combination with a soundtrack that features blaring police sirens.
The first feature to take note of concerns the humble wild (the bank vault symbol) which substitutes for all other symbols apart from the scatter. Find 5 on a payline and a 333.33 times stake payout will be yours. Any winning combination that includes a wild will be subject to a 2x multiplier and doubled.
The main feature offering is the Car Chase Bonus feature which is triggered when 3 or more scatters appear anywhere on the reels. You will randomly receive 10, 15, 20 or 25 free spins – however, you’ll just keep on spinning until the police car visible in the rear-view mirror catches up with you.
You’ll be given the choice of heading left or right to try and lose your tail. If you manage to do so, any wins accrued during the free spins will be boosted by a 2x multiplier and doubled.
Cops ‘n’ Robbers certainly isn’t the most sophisticated slot game we’ve come across – it’s pretty basic in many ways but does have its charms. The sound and visuals are good and the free spins can be rewarding, especially if you manage to escape the chasing police cars – in total, you can win 14,480 times your stake in the feature!
The minimum bet of just 9p for all paylines makes this a very affordable slot game to play. Newbies looking for a simple yet entertaining title could do worse than playing this game of Cops ‘n’ Robbers.
There have been a few Cops ‘n’ Robbers style titles, especially found in arcades and pubs throughout the UK but none really catch the eye anymore. I would suggest you try NetEnt’s The Invisible Man which has a related theme as well as Keystone Kops by IGT.
