Crime Scene Slot from NetEnt
Crime Scene is a slot which is clearly based upon the very popular C. S. I. (Crime Scene Investigation) television series, where throughout the game you’ll be investigating the aftermath of a rather bloody crime.
On the reels you’ll find such symbols as a bloody footprint, high tech forensic glasses, a metal briefcase and a gun. A police badge and fingerprints are the most important symbols in the game.
The police badge acts as a sticky wild, while the fingerprints enable the bonus feature where you’ll find an intriguing pick-me round.
How to Win on Crime Scene Slot
The bloody footprint is the highest paying symbol, worth 750 coins for the maximum 5 in a row, while the forensic glasses have a top payout of 400 coins. Both the metal briefcase and the gun are worth 200 coins for the maximum five, while the standard symbols are completed by the playing cards 10, J, Q, K and A. While the base wins look on the low side, it is possible to get these tripled with the help of wild symbols.
Wild symbols are represented by the police badge and will substitute for any other symbol apart from the fingerprint feature symbol. This is no normal wild symbol however, as when it lands on the reels you’ll find a number in the center. This number represents the number of spins that the wild will remain in place on the reels. The number on the wild could be as high as 5, while every win you receive with this wild symbol will be multiplied by 3. You might find a number of sticky wilds on the reels at any one time, meaning the chances of that big win are greatly enhanced.
Solving the Crime Scene Slot Feature
The crime scene feature is activated by landing three or more fingerprints anywhere across the reels. You’ll now be taken to a screen showing 30 blue files. You’ll now pick each file in turn. The majority of the files will simply uncover a credit amount, which will be added to your ongoing total. You’ll also find that some of the files will uncover one of four fingerprints. These will fill a meter at the bottom of the screen and each will have a credit amount. The good thing about the fingerprints is that every time you uncover a subsequent credit amount, the amount of the collected fingerprints will also be added – these amounts potentially being added again and again.
The symbol you’ll want to avoid is the red X. If you land this the first time, you’ll get an opportunity to pick one of four files, which might see you return to the game, or might see the round come to an end. However, the second time you land a red X the game is over. You can also uncover a green V symbol, which will negate a red X (acting much like a ‘get out of jail free card’).
The Crime Scene slot is set in the alleyway that the crime clearly took place in. At the top of the reels you’ll find the familiar black and yellow colored ‘crime scene’ tape, while the win line indicators found either side of the reels are also in yellow. Aside from this, the slot has a real dark feel, the playing card symbols making up much of the reels, each of these showing the letters and numbers drawn on a floor in chalk. The accompanying sound track is a good one, as you’ll hear the sound of walkie-talkies throughout the game, with TV show style soundbites when you land a win.
15 Win Line Setup
This NetEnt designed slot is played out on the very popular 5×3 slot configuration, this particular game has 15 win lines. This number of lines is set, although you can choose to change the bet level, meaning you can play for just 15 credits, or any multiple of 15 credits up to 150. You’ll then simply choose the coin value which you’ll multiply by this number of credits. Auto play is offered as always.
Crime Scene is a very enjoyable game throughout. Many base games play in exactly the same way, but the sticky wilds at Crime Scene really give the game a boost, especially when you consider the 3x multiplier in place every time you hit a win with one of these. The bonus feature is highly playable too, the payouts rising and rising as you uncover those fingerprints, while desperately trying to avoid those red Xs.
