If you’ve always fancied yourself as an ace detective capable of identifying tiny shreds of evidence that could easily pass others by, you’ll love getting the chance to prove your worth in Crime Scene. A five-reel, 15 payline title from NetEnt, the game places players behind the police tape at the site of a grisly murder and relies on their sleuthing to unlock big prizes. Featuring sticky multiplier wilds that freeze in place for up to five spins and treble the value of any paylines they feature in and a bonus round in which you uncover evidence to solve the case, Crime Scene is a highly immersive title that will simultaneous shock and entertain.
As the name would suggest, Crime Scene features a slightly darker theme than the majority of NetEnt slots, with players having to search the site of a grisly murder for clues. The slot’s background features a seedy-looking alleyway complete with body-bag and police tape, while the unique icons that appear on the reels include bloody footprints, forensic kits and handguns. Though traditional ace-through-ten playing card symbols also feature, even these are written in chalk on the pavement to help keep the crime scene theme consistent. Additionally, the slot features a piece of mysterious background music that helps keep the action exciting as players sleuth their way to bonus wins.
There are two main bonuses in Crime Scene; one is present during the base game and the other is its own self-contained feature. Dealing with them in order, whenever a wild symbol appears during any base game spin, a number from 2-5 will appear on top of that icon. This number represents how many spins the symbol will remain in place for, with all wins that the wild features in being worth triple their normal value. The bonus round, meanwhile, is triggered by landing three handprint scatter symbols, with this taking players to a new screen containing 30 evidence folders. Here, players must simply click a folder to unveil a cash prize, a piece of evidence – which will boost their future winnings – or the red cross symbol, which will end the feature.
One of the more old-school NetEnt video slots, Crime Scene features a fairly simple user interface that allows players to use plus and minus arrows to control both their bet level from 1-10 and their coin value from £0.01-£1.00. When combined and put through the game’s 15 paylines, this makes the slot playable from £0.15-£150.00 per spin and players can also launch up to 100 consecutive spins at their chosen bet level by using the autplay button.
A dark and broody slot that’s dripping with atmosphere, Crime Scene will put players in the shoes of a lead detective as they sleuth their way to bonus wins. The game is simple enough to pick up and play in a matter of minutes, but the slot’s immersive sound and visuals and cool bonus features give it enough longevity to satisfy even the most hard-boiled investigator.
