Novomatic’s bungling burglars and prancing policeman get a second outing in Cops ‘n’ Robbers Millionaires Row. This crime caper is played using a 5 reel, 20 payline game engine and comes with 4 base game extras, a free spins round and a shot at a potential jackpot prize. Play, on all devices, from between 60p and £40 per spin.
Just like the original (Cops ‘n’ Robbers by the way), the cartoon design in Cops ‘n’ Robbers Millionaires Row has a madcap feel. Joining the A to 9 playing cards are sticks of dynamite, a safe, a copper and a pile of gold – 5 of the latter on a single payline will get you a payout equal to 25 times your total bet. The copper and gold bars can land fully stacked and fill whole reels.
The bulldog is the game’s wild – it replaces all symbols apart from the bonus and also offers top payouts of some 25 times your total stake. There are plenty of extras on offer, known as the Cops ‘n’ Robbers Bonus feature, in this trip to Millionaire’s Row – 4 of them can hit at random following any base game spin:
- Rewind – 1 or more reels are nudged upwards to create a winning payline.
- Fast Forward – 1 or more reels are nudged downwards to create a winning payline.
- Reel Morph – symbols are transformed and a winning combination created.
- Bonus Wilds – extra wild symbols are added to the reels and a new payout calculation is made.
Look out for the bonus symbol too – when it lands on the odd numbered reels on the same spin, you’ll trigger the Street Bonus feature. Here you’ll be taken to a board game-style screen – roll the dice to move the robber along the board. He’ll collect free spins for you as he goes.
Hope to land on a wild bonus square as this will improved the wild extras on offer when the Free Spins feature begins. On offer are locked wilds, domino wilds which turn adjacent symbols wild, exploding wilds which also turn adjacent symbols wild and expanding wilds that can fill whole reels. When you land on the green corner square, the free spins, complete with accumulated wild extras, begin.
Millionaires Row also offers a shot at winning a bumper progressive jackpot prize – collect 5 gold keys during the Street Bonus feature and the Free Spins feature and you’ll trigger the big one.
The design here isn’t the most impressive – it has a certain anarchic feel though, especially when combined with the souped up Inspector Gadget-style backing track. The features come along at regular intervals. The variance is in the medium range.
Loud and brash, Cops ‘n’ Robbers Millionaires Row most certainly is – it’s an entertaining enough slot though and delivers plenty of slapstick thrills. I do prefer the non-jackpot version though.
