Art of the Heist is a 5 reel, 21 payline slot powered by Playson. Available to play on desktop, mobile and tablet devices from 21p to £63 per spin, the game is based on cat burglar Vincenzo who aims to steal treasures from a guarded museum. Art of the Heist will remind you of Pink Panther.

Visually, it has cartoon style graphics and is set in an old museum – you will see playing cards (A, K, Q and J) as well as crowns, statues, walkie talkies, security guards, mummies and museums on the reels. The highest value symbols are both the crown and treasure chest wild which award you 300 times your line stake for 5 on a payline. The treasure chest wild also substitutes for all symbols except the bonus symbol.

That bonus symbol is the painting with 3 or more anywhere in view triggering the Bonus Game feature – 3 of them will give you 40 times your stake with 4 giving you 100 times your stake. 5 of them will reward you with 300 times your total stake!

In the feature, you have to guess in which room the discharge switch is hidden – your aim it to switch the whole alarm system off. If you manage to do so and steal the iconic masterpiece, a superb bonus will be yours. There are 15 rooms in all with 7 keys given to investigate the rooms – there are 2 more keys hidden in some of the rooms.

You need to avoid the guards in 4 of the 15 rooms with a guard taking away a key from you if you encounter him. You can win up to 5 times your stake in each room. If you find the painting, the number of keys left times your stake will be awarded to you – you’ll also win 20 times your stake as the super bonus.

There is also a Free Spins feature which is not activated with 3 free spins symbols – you will notice a pathway where Vincenzo moves forward and backwards. A wild symbol will give you up to 2 free spins to your free spins tally when you trigger the feature for example.

When he lands in a cell with a Bonus symbol, you will activate the Free Spins feature. Look out for mummies as this moves Vincenzo 2 spaces back. Stepping on a security guard will freeze him for the free spins that follow. Once you reach the end of the trail, you will get 10 free spins (plus any extras you accumulated in the base game). Look out too for stacked wilds during the feature which can really boost your winnings!

Art of the Heist is quirky and fun – on the variance scale, it sits in the low to medium range. I do like it but Playson has produced better slots – namely the higher variance ones like Dracula’s Family and Wild Hunter.
