Every now and again a plot or romance will lend itself to deifying the bad guy. It makes for a rather adventurous notion; getting away with the cash and the beautiful woman and not being caught – living out loud in lavish riches for the rest of your days on a remote island where the summers never end. It is exactly this unorthodox and exciting notion that is at the heart of BetSoft Gaming’s Heist.
Heist is a 3D video slot featuring 5 reels and 30 paylines. In addition to stunning true colour 3D graphics, catchy background music, and an intriguing plot, the game also boasts a variety of special features.
Heist Reel Symbols
Symbols include a blueprint of the vault, shimmering diamonds, stopwatches and a security system, not to mention the two main protagonists, namely the smooth and slippery Neil Quailand and his more honourable counterpart, detective Albert Kowalski. Landing a combination of 5 in a row of any of the symbols secures a handsome payout, with Neil Quailand being in the top spot at a fiendish 2 500 credits. The scatter is represented by an image of a drill. Landing a combination of 3 or more of the scatters anywhere on the reels will secure an instant cash prize, based on the size of the bet for that particular spin of the reels.
The Glass Cutter Bonus Game
The glass cutter bonus game is activated by landing 3 or more of the glass cutter symbols on any of the active paylines. Each of the glass cutter symbols conceal a different reward, and the player is now given the choice to select any one of the three. Free spins, extra credits and access to the other bonus rounds are all part of the possible kitty.
The Wild Reel Bonus Game
As a twist befitting to the storyline, the wild reel bonus game is activated by landing the C4 Explosives symbol in the centre position on the centre of the 5 reels. This causes the C4 Explosives to ignite, and the entire centre reel to become wild. In addition to a grand animative display, all winnings are doubled.
Breaking The Bank
Arguably the grandest of all the special features is awarded when landing a combination of 3 or more of the vault symbols on any active payline. The screen is transformed into a life-like bank vault, and the player is given the role of Neil Quailand himself. The best combination of entry and escape routes must now be worked out and decided on, with a handsome reward offered as compensation for the successful fulfilment of thievely duties.
Heist Hi-Tech Interface
The game interface is finished in brushed steel, and game info is displayed in digitised writing, lending a nifty Hi-Tech edge to the experience.
Heist runs smoothly on all major operating systems, including Mac and Linux systems, and a version suitable for mobile devices is already being developed.
The Jackpot yields a maximum return of 500 credits.
