Il Commissario is a 5 reel, 10 payline slot powered by Novomatic. Based in beautiful Venice, this police/detective themed game can be played from 40p to £100 per spin across desktop, mobile and tablet devices including iOS, Android and laptops/PCs.

Set in Venice, the police call on you to help solve the crime. Symbols on the reels include fingerprint style playing cards (A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9), 4 locations such as the Rialto Bridge, St Mark’s Square, Basilica and Frari Church, a uniformed Italian policeman and a female detective.

You also have Il Commissario himself (the Police Superintendent). He is the wild symbol and substitutes for all symbols except the scatter – 3, 4 or 5 of him on a payline will reward you with 5, 50 or 500 times your stake.

The police report scatter is all-important as 3 or more anywhere in view will activate the Free Games feature. If you’re lucky enough to get 5, you will get 200 times your stake. Anyway, you will receive 15 free spins.

During the feature, there’s a red telephone symbol which appears on the reels and gives a clue about the suspect. Each clue reduces the remaining number of wanted suspects to help you solve the crime easier. Once all free spins have taken place, you will play the Suspect feature.

Here, you need to select 1 of the remaining suspects – if you apprehend the right suspect, you can get a multiplier up to 20x applied to your free spins winnings! Will you succeed in reading the evidence correctly in order to catch the guilty suspect?

Il Commissario is quite a simple slot which has a nice little twist in the Free Games feature. The potential for a 20x multiplier makes it very appealing and I consider it to be a medium to high variance offering. If you like detective themed games, CLUEDO Spinning Detectives by WMS is recommended – if you like games set in Venice, Royal Masquerade by Play ‘N Go is worth playing.
