Private Eye Review
Fans of detective slots are going to love this 5-reel video slot by Microgaming as it takes you into the heart of a crime scene, with the main character being a detective in a long coat and black hat who investigates a mysterious murder. The slot has rich visuals, a two-level bonus game, three different scatters, free spins with an exciting added twist, and a wild symbol. All pics in the slot are designed to fit the theme and include handcuffs, a chalk outline on the street, and other themed icons.
The slot has no paylines and is based on the Microgaming’s famous 243-ways-to-win system, wherein winning combos are created by three or more identical pics that appear on consecutive reels starting from the utmost left reel. As in many other slots of this kind, the paytable cannot boast impressive figures but small and moderate wins occur fairly often. As there are no paylines that the player can activate, the minimum bet is $0.25. By changing a coin size between $0.01 and $0.25, and toggling between the amount of coins per line (1 to 10), you can place a bet of up to $62.50 per spin.
A bronze police badge is a wild that functions as a substitute for the missing regular symbols to help them create winning combos. Besides, the wild is a very profitable symbol since five of them landed on adjacent reels will top up your balance with the slot’s second largest award of $2500 at max.
A detective is a scatter that pays in any position if 3+ appear. The largest possible win for five scatters is $6250, provided you have placed the maximum acceptable bet on the winning spin.
A paper boy is another scatter that would trigger a free spin bonus. Once activated, you will see nine newspapers arranged in three rows. Your task is to choose one newspaper from the upper, middle and bottom row to determine the number of free spins (10, 12 or 20), a multiplier (x2, x3 or x4) and a random cash prize, respectively. After you have completed the selection, free spins start automatically based on the values shown on your selected newspapers.
Three Bonus symbols will grant you entrance to a Solve the Case bonus game. You will find yourself inside a detective’s office and see numerous clues on a table including a gun, a notebook and a wooden box. You should pick clues to find a fingerprint before a phone rings. Locating the fingerprint advances you to the second bonus level where you are asked to choose one mugshot out of five available. And the item of your choice will display a random coin prize. The max award up for grabs in the bonus feature reaches $3000.
