What’s The Deal?
Who’s got time to watch TV? Not this Wombat! When I’m not doing odd jobs for Mrs W, I’m reviewing slots for you lot… Still, my mate Wesley just loves the telly box and reckons detective shows are the best.
So, he’ll be stoked with this new slot from Skywind Group, because it’s based on CSI – his fave crime drama show!
Let’s investigate the reels for hidden cash prizes, shall we?
Graphics and Theme
CSI: Crime Scene Investigation was a massive show in the early 2000s and ran for 15 years. The slot design here does it justice with stills and footage from the original show.
The reels are set on a backdrop of the Las Vegas skyline and your favourite characters make up the majority of your reel icons and the music is made up of the show’s theme tune.
There are 12 reel symbols in this slot, they include a handgun, a bullet, a magnifying glass, a test tube, a torch, some powder for finding fingerprints and the 6 characters from the show. These glossy-looking criminologists can also land stacked on the reels…
Your top paying icon is Jim Brass, homicide detective for the Las Vegas Police Department. He’ll scoop you x5 your bet for 5.
The wild icon is the black and yellow crime scene tape, which is a nice touch. While your scatter is the gold CSI badge.
CSI:Crime Scene Investigation Slot Game Play
CSI: Crime Scene Investigation slot comes with 5 reels, 3 rows and 50 pay-lines. Bets start at 0.50 coins per spin and go up to a maximum of 250.00 per spin.
Variance wise, this Wombat reckons the game sits in the medium volatility – category so you can expect both smaller wins often, and bigger payouts from time to time.
If you want a higher volatility slot then you could try the Reef Raider slot from NetEnt or many of the Play’n GO titles- they seem to like a volatile game.
Mega Stacks Bonus
Fill the reels with one of the character icons and you’ll get a bonus cash win of between 30x and 100x your bet (depending on how much that character is worth).
Crime Scene Bonus Game
Hit 3x of the CSI gold scatters on reels 2, 3 and 4 and you’ll set off this pick and click game. You’ll now get to visit a crime scene and choose from 10 pieces of evidence that will reveal one of the following:
A cash prize
A cash prize + extra pick
A cash prize + piece of evidence.
Find 4 pieces of evidence, and you’ll solve the case giving your cash win your total a 2x boost. Nice one!
Case File Free Games
CSI gold coins on reels 2, 3 and 4 can also set off the Free Games round (which bonus you get depends on which scatter is on the middle reel).
Pick a character icon who’ll be the only icon spinning on the reels, along with one lower value symbol. You’ll now get 8 spins that can be re-triggered an infinite number of times.
CSI: Crime Scene Investigation slot is a great branded game.
Fans of the show will love a spin, but for the rest of you, the bonus features will keep you happy too.
