Cops n Robbers Safecracker was the second version of this amazing fruit machine to launch online. This was a move more towards being a slot machine rather than a fruit machine, yet has all the charm of the pub and club fruties we all played. Cops n Robbers Safecracker was launched as a normal fruit machine and was situated around the UK, popular in snooker halls, pubs, clubs and even in some people homes.
Cops ‘n’ Robbers is one of more modern Novomatic titles, though it’s still a classic slot, and it was released in 2014. This is a fun game with cartoonish characters and three different bonus games. You can win up to 100 free spins!
Apart from the three Scatter symbols which trigger the three bonus features, the game uses a Wild and nine more normal symbols. The Wild doubles all wins, so it is expected that the paytable isn’t very generous when no Wild is in the winning payline. Most prizes will just get you your stake back or a portion of it, and for a significant prize you need five-of-a-kind of one of four main symbols.
The game uses 20 paylines on a 5×3 board, and the lines are selectable so any number between 1 and 20 can be played. The game has theoretical return to player (RTP) of 95.03%, not too bad, and variance seems to be medium as there is more than one way to get that big win. Players who enjoy higher variance won’t be disappointed either, as the best possible win in this slot is 500x your bet, plus a chance to win 100 free spins with prizes tripled.
Cops n Robbers Safecracker Bonus Rounds
The main bonus feature is the free spins game, which is triggered when you land three, four or five Police Siren Scatters. You’ll get 15, 25 or 100 free spins respectively, which means there’s a huge payout for landing five of those Scatters. All wins are tripled except Wild wins which carry a 5x win multiplier.
There are two more bonus games. Safe Cracker Bonus is triggered by landing three, four or five Safe Scatters. The way to win a prize is simple, just click one of the Scatters and the prize will be revealed, up to 100x your bet. Hot Pursuit Bonus is much more interesting, and it’s triggered by landing three, four or five Cops ‘n’ Robbers symbols. When you click the Start button you’ll roll the dice and move your Robber around the board. Stay ahead of the Cop and earn rewards as you go. When you are caught the Cop will ask you for your ID, and you might even get away with a warning! Maximum win from this feature is 500x your bet.
Safecracker Pros and Cons
Cops ‘n’ Robbers Safecracker has three bonus games, which is plenty, so a big win can strike anytime. The free spins game is very rewarding as prizes are at least tripled and you can win whopping 100 free spins, so this game can pay very well if you’re lucky with the variance. Plus the game is a lot of fun, especially the Hot Pursuit feature!
When you make a slot game with cops and robbers you ought to provide fun and some humor, and a hint towards it’s iconic past, and that’s exactly what Novomatic – more specifically their child company Mazooma Interactive Games – did in this slot game. It’s a very decent classic slot which can provide both big wins and a lot of fun.
