Players will have absolutely no trouble when it comes to getting straight to crime solving on Crime Scene the options are pleasingly simple. The win lines are fixed at fifteen so all players need to be concerned about is their bet level and coin value. As is often the case on this generation of NetEnt games, there’s also a Max Bet button that will take things straight to the limit, but those who prefer a little more control can adjust things to their liking and then choose between manual spins or auto play, where the game effectively plays itself until the features hit.
You’re firmly on the right side of the law here on Crime Scene, so the police badge makes sense as a wild card. It’s nothing overly special aside from the traditional substitution opportunities and is more there to keep things ticking over until players manage to land three fingerprint scatters. That said, it will remain on the board for the between one and five subsequent spins as a sticky wild and will then add a three times multiplier to any prizes that make use of it.
The aforementioned fingerprints trigger the Crime Scene Bonus. What makes this round so enticing is the fact that it is pretty much a pick a win bonus, yet far more involved than many of its contemporaries. Thirty different evidence files are displayed on the screen and the main idea of the game is to uncover cash. However, there are a few other pieces of evidence contained within these folders that can have an impact on your gameplay. The red cross is the one that you don’t particularly want to find as three of them will end the round prematurely. You’d much rather discover a fingerprint as each one is worth a cash prize. Rather than being paid immediately, this prize is added on to every subsequent folder prize that you find.
Completing the round are the V and X symbols. A V will cancel the next red cross found, essentially extending the bonus game, while the X does the same but in reverse, knocking an already discovered red cross off your total as you attempt to avoid finding all three.
Game Culture’s Opinion
Crime Scene sets the bar for pick a win bonuses with ease by combining a great graphical interface than more than the standard win or lose choices. Indeed, the bonus game is so dynamic that you’re unlikely to even notice the absence of a free spins round and if you want to see pokie gaming at its finest, this is one game that is definitely worth closer investigation.
