Heist may have won plaudits from many top casino review sites, but to be perfectly honest, we couldn’t find that much to praise about this slot. Heist’s title says everything you need to know about this slot’s theme, and whilst its graphics are certainly thematic and wonderfully designed; the gameplay and excitement level in this slot ebbs and flows.
Heist offers your customary BetSoft Gaming designed 30-line structure, spread over 5 reels. This 3D video slot allows you to use levers to alter your bet, as well as choose how much you wish to stake per line. You can also alter the value of your coins. Heist is going to cost you 2p per line, per spin at its cheapest, or £150 per spin at its costliest.
Players can pocket around 250x their total bet in this slot machine game, and that is win a good run of form. They will need to land the thief (Neil) symbol on any active payline, and they will need 5 such instances of this symbol to pocket the Heist slot’s non-progressive jackpot.
Special features are notoriously hard to trigger in the Heist slot. If you want wilds, you will need to land the C4 symbol on the second position of the central reel (reel three). This can trigger an explosive wild reel which doubles the value of all wins in which it appears. It is sometimes possible for this reel to remain locked into place for the following spin, though don’t bank on it.
Scatter symbols appear as drills, as they can offer you wins worth 150 coins, 300 coins, or 750 coins for landing 3, 4, or 5 of them anywhere on the screen.
If players land 3 or more of the glass cutter icons on any active payline, they can trigger a Glass Cutter feature. In this bonus, players can select one of the three glass cutters to pocket either free spins, access to the bonus round, or an instant win cash prize.
Second Screen bonus
The main way to trigger the bonus is to land 3 or more of the vault icons on a payline. Yes, that’s on a payline, so the symbols don’t count as scatters. This will see you taken to a second screen, where you can break into a vault to win cash prizes before escaping from the clutches of Detective Kowalski.
It is not difficult to see why heist themed slot lovers might fancy this game. But let’s be realistic and look at it from a neutral perspective, shall we? Heist costs a lot of money to play, it offers only a moderate non-progressive jackpot for your bets, and has too many special symbols on the reels. The downside to the latter is that they tend to get in the way of the standard paying icons, without triggering the features at the same time. This is bad for business, and Heist ultimately leaves a sour taste in your mouth, good graphics or otherwise.
