It’s not that I’ve had a fantastic amount of contact with police officers or villains but the ones I have met, have never looked as attractive as the females since in this slot from Microgaming. Jean and Selina look stunning and their looks are matched by the attractive gameplay that this game has to offer. There’s chance after chance of good winning opportunities in this slot.
This slot has a total of five reels and they contain 45 pay-lines on its three rows of symbols. The minimum cost of playing this slot is 0.50 and the most you can gamble on one spin is 100. Just work out a budget that you can then play at without the possibility of any financial problems arising. Also, be careful with just how long you are playing the game.
If you like slot games that have a comic-book look to them (always handy with cops and robbers), then this game is going to appeal to you. In the background, we can see a city road that is packed with fast cars, motorbikes, and helicopters, yes, it’s all a bit hectic out there. The game is accompanied by an enjoyable soundtrack that wouldn’t be out of place in an action movie. If you do get fed up of it there’ the option to mute it, though I don’t believe that is something you will want to do.
Symbols include high-paying ones such as a suitcase filled to the brim with gold, police cars, motorcycles, bombs, and helicopters. It’s the suitcase which is the best paying symbol in this slot with 2250 coins awarded if you can get five of them on a pay-line. The lower-paying symbols are the Ten to Ace playing card symbols.
There’s not one but two wild symbols here. They are the heroine and villain of the slot, that’s Jean and Selina respectively. Jean is a rather busty blonde with a big gun, while Selina has a mask on and looks a bit of a cat burglar to me (Selina just happening to be the real name of Catwoman is pure coincidence). You won’t mind if the symbol represents a goodie or a baddie if it can substitute for other symbols and get you some winning combinations.
Neither of the wild symbols can substitute for the scatter symbol (that’s the bank) or each other, that really would make it easier to get some wins and qualify for the bonus game. Getting five of either of the wild symbols on a pay-line is going to put a big smile on your face as they pay 10,000 coins for five on a pay-line. The two wild symbols can even work together because a mixture of five wilds on a pay-line is a 5000x win.
If you can get at least three of the scatter symbols anywhere, then that’s great news. Why? Well it means you have managed to trigger the free spins round and that could see you playing with up to 160 of them if your luck is really in. it gets a bit complicated now because if you trigger the bonus round with three scatter symbols on the first three reels, you win five free spins. Four scatters on the first three reels win you a total of 10 free spins. That figure rises to 20 for five scatter symbols on the first, second and third reels get you an impressive 20 free spins but there are more to come
If six turn up on the second and third reels you will receive 40 free spins and there’s a whopping 80 free spins if the bonus round is triggered by a total of seven scatters anywhere on the reels. With the possibility of those free spins being re-triggered this can be a very lucrative bonus round.
There’s a fair amount happening in this slot so it’s a good idea to have a look through the paytable. That will give you all the information you need about the different winning combinations and how much they pay out. It also contains more details about where all the pay-lines are and how the bonus game works. To further prepare yourself for playing this slot with real money, have some free games and then see how all the features work out.
If you like the gameplay in this slot, why not try out others that have a similar style of play. For example, try the Microgaming slot ‘Jumpin’ Rabbit’ which also has a 5×3 reel lay-out and a free spins round with a 1x multiplier. Also, have a go at IGT’s ‘The Mighty Atlas’ which like ‘The Heat is On’ is of a medium variance with a free spins round and offers stacked wild symbols to increase the chance of winning combinations.
The free spins round is the centre of attention in this slot, especially if you could get a total of 160 to play with. It’s an attractive looking game (and not just those two women), the theme is well adhered to and this is definitely a slot game that you should give a go to.
