The heat is on! Get in, buckle up, and get ready for some serious fun. This is a new slot game from Microgaming and is complete with police cars, motorcycles, bombs, suitcases full of gold, and last but not least, helicopters. It is a cops and robbers game, plus more!
The Heat is On is a 5 reel 45 payline online slot. It has mixed wilds and free spins. Selina, the bank robber, is up against Jean, the police woman. Both represent wilds in the game. They substitute for all other symbols in the game except other wilds, and the scatter symbol. The bank symbol itself is the scatter symbol and you’ll need three or more of these for your free spins. Now these women might be on opposite sides of the law, but if you are lucky enough to get both in a payline, wilds pay mixed, and substitutes for all other symbols except scatter.
The free spin feature is triggered by 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols. They must start on the left most reel and be adjacent on reels 1,2 and 3 and so on. It will trigger 5, 10 or 20 spins respectively. If lady luck is on your side and you are able to get scatters on reel 2 or reel 3, your free spin number will be doubled giving you up to 40 free spins. Wait, there’s more. Then if you are able to get 2 scatter on reels 2 and 3 your free spins quadruple up to a total of 80 spins. Free spins can re-trigger one more time for the chance of receiving 160 free spins in all.
Although there is no progressive in this game, and no bonus round besides the free spins, it is fair to say that the free spin bonus round is quite a thrill and you find you don’t miss an additional bonus round all that terribly bad. I found the game theme fun as I am always an easy catch for the theme of this game. The games free spin rounds can really add up. With a maximum bet of $125 a spin, I’d love to see this if someones spins went up to 160. The Heat is On is a winner of a game in my opinion.
