Heist, an online slots game developed by Betsoft Gaming, is exactly what the name suggests. The theme of the game is a bank heist and the developers have ensured that every aspect of Heist adds to the character and atmosphere of this theme. The thief in Heist is Neil Quailand, a bank robber who is attempting to break into the vault of a bank in order to steal 9 million pounds in cash.
You will play as Neil and your goal is to get into the vault before the police, lead by detective Albert Kowalski, stop you. Similar to other slot games, the aim of Heist is to match as many symbols as you can across the paylines. More matches lead to more winnings. What makes this game different to regular slot games are the cinematic quality 3D graphics, the font used, the catchy background music which fits in perfectly with the theme, and of course the symbols which add to the bank robbery motif.
Symbols used in Heist
Every symbol in Heist relates directly to the bank robbery theme. Symbols include items that one would use to rob a bank, such as guns, bank blueprints, a ticking clock, the vault itself as well as the lock and money bags and diamonds. Certain symbols are worth more money than others. High earning symbols include the main characters, Neil Quailand and Albert Kowalski themselves. Should Neil land on all five reels of an active payline you win up to $2,500 from one spin.
How to Play Heist
Heist has five reels and thirty paylines. You can place your bets underneath the reels of between 0.05 and 150 credits for each time you spin. Even the wagering area takes on the theme of a bank Heist as the buttons used to place bets resemble a security system panel. Different winning combinations will pay out various amounts in the base games but there is a Wild symbol and bonus rounds which will ensure you have more chances to win big.
Heist has several bonus features that make it similar to the most slots at River Belle mobile casino. The first bonus round is called the Glass Cutter game. Three or more glass cutter symbols on a payline will trigger this game. You will have to choose one of the three glass cutter symbols to discover a prize hidden behind it. These rewards include free spins, extra credits or a prompt to take you to one of the other bonus rounds. The second bonus feature is the Wild Reel. This bonus round activates when the explosives symbol lands in the centre of the middle reel. When this occurs, the wild reel will reward you with a 2x multiplier which ensures greater winnings.
As an added bonus, the centre reel, otherwise known as the wild reel, will sometimes lock in place which calls for a re-spin and will double the winnings. An unexpected feature is the scatter symbol, the drill. If three or more of this symbol land anywhere on the reels you will instantly win a prize. Lastly, should you manage to evade the police and break into the bank vault then you get to play the role of Neil and have the chance to grab as many valuable items as possible. This happens when you hit three vault symbols on a payline. You will also be able to choose which escape plan Neil should take. Bonus credits are awarded if you are successful.
