Reel Steal Slot Game

This 5-reel video slot from NetEnt has only 9 win-lines, and the look and feel of an early generation online slot. There are some great reasons to play this crime-themed game – the most important of these are win multipliers.

Wilds will give you a 5x win during regular play, and when you hit the free spins bonus game every win has a 5x multiplier – with wilds taking this to a huge 25x.

You’ll find guns, fast cars, dynamite and an underground boss lighting his cigar with a banknote on the reels, in addition to some sirens as sound effects.

  • How to Win on the Reel Steal Slot

    You might think that regular wins would need be on the smaller side to balance the chance of 25x multipliers. This is not the case, with the biggest regular win coming in at 1500 coins (based on only 9 coins per spin this is pretty generous). This is for the blond haired guy pointing a gun. He will pay 150 coins for 4 and 25 coins for just 3 of a kind. A

    A lady in sunglasses holding a gun over her head is next at 1000 coins for 5, followed by the older guy in a suit lighting his cigar at 750. There are 2 more characters on the reels, one is a guy in an orange shirt leaning against a car, the other a guy in a cap with an explosion behind him. These will bring you 400 and 200 coins for 5 of a kind respectively.

    Reel Steal does not use playing card symbols as fillers for the smaller wins. Instead you’ll find an open safe, bag of cash, case containing diamonds, camera and map plus a symbol containing guns and passports. Wins for 5 of a kind vary from 100 down to 40 for these (before multipliers).

    Wild symbols are represented by a very wide and long yellow car. These substitute for all the regular symbols covered above, though not the dynamite scatters. Any win in the base game which is completed by one or more wilds is multiplied by 5.

    Big Multipliers and Free Spins

    Dynamite sticks have 2 roles. First they pay a scatter prize, based on the total in view (from 2 and up) and second they will trigger the free spins bonus game. The number of free spins you get depends on how many appear. You’ll get 15 spins for 3, 20 spins for 4 and 25 spins for 5. Scatter wins are 2x your total bet for 2, 4x that bet for 3, 15x for 4 and a generous 100x for 5.

    During the free spins the game-play is identical to the base game. The big difference is that every win now comes with a 5x multiplier, and any wins which include one or more wilds will get a 25x multiplier. This brings the top paying line win to a huge 37,500 coins.

    Every time you hit one of the dynamite sticks during the free spins game, it will explode, giving you an extra free spin each time this happens. These appear frequently enough that you can expect your bonus game to be extended at least a little.

    Retro Design, In More Ways Than One

    This slot had a retro design when it was brand new, looking back to the crime TV shows of the 1970s in the characters and the overall look. Now, the slot is getting older itself, and has in some ways become double-retro! The game looks smart and plays quickly and smoothly. While detailed and colorful, the graphics are clearly not of the current generation.

    The stand out symbols are the people, with the lady having her stomach showing while wearing a jacket somewhat confusing. The guy with the explosion behind him has a slightly psychopathic grin! You’ll find a couple of animations, the car wilds will drive off when involved in a win (getting replaced with the word ‘Wild’). The exploding scatters also add some life to the game. Sounds include funky music and some sirens.

    Adjustable 9 Win-Line Setup

    9 win-lines is low by the standards of other NetEnt slots, though you can reduce this further if you want. You can bet from just 1c per line up to 50c, and spin for up to 10 coins per line. The usual max bet and auto-play are offered as well as plenty of sound / graphics configuration options.

    Overall Experience

    Reel Steal is an older video slot, though is still enjoyable. The fast and smooth game-play, plus multipliers which go up to 25x the listed wins, make for an engaging slot. I would recommend this one for an update – a 25-line version with an extra bonus game or two would certainly be popular.
