Making off with bags full of swag is the goal in Cops ‘n’ Robbers, a 5 reel, 20 payline slot from Novomatic. Available on desktop, tablet and mobile, this crime caper comes with a pick’em round, a multiplier trail and a feature round that awards up to 100 free spins with all payouts trebled. Play from between 20p and £50 per spin.
Like many slots from the Novomatic stable, the design in Cops ‘n’ Robbers has a real cartoon feel. Joining the A to 9 playing cards are a policewoman and a moustachioed male cop. The most rewarding symbols are the wig-wearing judge and the cop car which award almost 40 times your total stake if you land 5 on a payline.
Look out too for the guard dog which is the wild – whenever if forms part of a winning combination, that payout is doubled. The only exception is if you land 5 wilds on a payline – manage that and you’ll pocket 500 times your total bet (or 20,000 coins). There are 3 bonus features on offer in Cops ‘n’ Robbers – they are as follows:
Safe Cracker Bonus feature – land 3 or more of the safe scatter symbol to trigger this pick me round. Then choose 1 of the safes to reveal a cash prize of anything up to 100 times your total bet.
Hot Pursuit Bonus feature – 3 or more Cops ‘n’ Robbers symbols anywhere on the reels triggers this cash trail. Roll the dice and work your way along the board where each square has a multiplier value. Watch out for the cop who is in hot pursuit. When the cop catches the robber, you’ll face an identity parade. If you’re picked out, the game ends. If not, you get a second run around the board. Keep on collecting multipliers until the robber is finally caught.
Free Spins Bonus feature – 3, 4 or 5 siren scatters anywhere on the reels will get you 15, 25 or 100 free spins. All payouts during the feature are boosted by a 3x multiplier and trebled. If you trigger the Safe Cracker Bonus feature from the Free Spins Bonus feature, the prizes on offer there are trebled too giving you up to 300 times your stake!
The imagery isn’t the most sophisticated here but in this instance, it matches the theme rather well, especially in association with the frantic, Inspector Gadget-style soundtrack. Cops ‘n’ Robbers isn’t the most volatile slot you’ll see with the variance in the medium range.
There’s plenty of action on offer though thanks to the trio of features. The wild multipliers certainly help the base game action tick over too. We found plenty to enjoy in this cartoon caper – get lucky with those features and Cops ‘n’ Robbers can deliver plenty of loot too if your luck is in. I also recommend Novomatic’s Il Commissario.
