Skywind’s CSI: Crime Scene Investigation Slot Review

Based on the hugely successful TV series, the CSI: Crime Scene Investigation slot is a 5 reel, 50 payline game from Skywind. Boasting the glossy design you’d expect from a branded game, it also comes with some petty nifty extras. There’s a pick me round as well as free spins where only 1 high value and 1 low value symbol is in play. Fill the screen with one of the higher-paying character symbols to trigger the Mega Stack Bonus where prizes of up to 100x are awarded on top of your standard win. Join Grissom and the team from between 50p and £250 per spin.

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation Theme/Symbols

As you’d hope for a slot based on one of the world’s most successful TV franchises, there’s high end look to the design in CSI. With the bright lights of night-time Vegas in the background, you’ll see a torch, vial, petri dish, bullet, magnifying glass and gun symbols.

They’re joined by 6 members of the CSI cast. The best of them is Jim Brass who pays 4 times your stake if you land 5 on a payline. There’s also a wild that can land on the middle 3 reels only.

2 bonus features

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation comes with 2 feature rounds. They’re triggered by landing the CSI scatter on reels 2, 3 and 4 on the same spin. Which bonus you get depends on which scatter is on the middle reel.

Crime Scene Bonus Game feature

Crime Scene Bonus Game feature

In the Crime Scene Bonus Game feature, you’ll be taken to a crime scene. A pick me game, you’ll then be offered the pick of 10 objects. These will reveal a cash prize, a cash prize and another pick or a cash prize with a piece of evidence. If you find 4 pieces of evidence, your total prize from this round receives a 2x multiplier boost and is doubled.

Case File Free Games feature

Case File Free Games feature

Trigger the Case File Free Games feature and you can look forward to 8 free spins. Before they start, you’ll pick to reveal which member of the CSI team you’ll be working with. During the free spins, only your chosen character, plus 1 of the lower value tool symbols will appear on the reels.

With just 2 symbols, you can expect to make plenty of winning combinations. You can re-trigger more free spins indefinitely too as well as activating the Crime Scene Bonus Game feature.

Mega Stacks Bonus feature

If you fill the whole of the reels with the same character symbol, you’ll be in line for the Mega Stacks Bonus feature. This comes on top of the standard payout. These vary from between 30 and 100 times your stake depending on which character is the trigger.

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation thoughts

The CSI: Crime Scene Investigation television show is a middle of the road show. You could say the same about this slot version. It’s all perfectly solid but it’s not really cutting edge. The pick me round and the free spins with limited symbols both offer some decent potential though.

Medium variance, you can win up to 200 times your stake on each spin or free spin (by filling the reels with the highest value Jim Brass character). With an RTP of 95.18%, this slot will be appealing if you are a fan of the crime scene TV series. If you want a high paying slot, NetEnt’s Vikings offers 10,000 x stake wins on each free spin.
