Enjoy some criminal cartoon capers in Cops ‘n’ Robbers, a 5 reel, 20 payline video slot powered by Novomatic. Available on desktop, mobile and tablet devices, the swag on offer includes up to 100 free spins with a 3x multiplier, pick me prizes and a hot pursuit where big bonuses can be won. Play from between 20p and £50 per spin.

Cops ‘n’ Robbers has a real cartoon feel – joining the lower value playing cards are female and male coppers, a gavel-wielding judge and a panda car. The guard dog is the game’s wild – whenever it forms part of a winning combination, that payout is doubled.

The only exception is if you land a full complement of 5 wilds. Manage that and you’ll pocket 500 times your total stake. There are a trio of bonus features on offer in Cops ‘n’ Robbers – they are as follows:

Free Spins Bonus feature – to trigger this one, you’ll need to land 3 or more of the flashing blue light symbol. 3 will get you 15 free spins. 4 awards 25 with a whopping 100 free spins on offer if you manage to hit 5 on the same spin. All payouts during the feature are boosted by a 3x multiplier. You can re-trigger more free spins here too giving you up to 200 potentially!

Safe Cracker Bonus feature – land 3 safe symbols anywhere on the reels to trigger this pick me round. Choose from 1 of the safes shown to reveal a cash prize which can reach up to 100 times your total stake.

Hot Pursuit Bonus feature – this round is triggered by landing 3 or more of the Cops ‘n’ Robbers logo. Move the robber along the board by rolling the dice. He adds swag to your total in the form of multiplier prizes depending on which square he lands on.

Keep on collecting until the cop catches up with the robber. The first time your robber gets his collar felt, he’ll face an ID parade. If he’s not identified, he’ll be freed and you’ll get a second shot at traversing the board. If the witness picks out your man, the feature ends.

We’re often critical of the design of Novomatic video slots but the look and sound in Cops ‘n’ Robbers works rather well. The visuals are brash and bold and the madcap, Inspector Gadget style soundtrack is a nice match.

As far as volatility goes, this sit somewhere in the middle. The features come along at fairly regular intervals. It’s unlikely you’ll win enough to retire to the Costa Del Crime, but Cops ‘n’ Robbers offers plenty of entertainment and the chance to win some decent swag if luck is with you. I also recommend you try some of Novomatic’s other offerings with Aztec Power a popular choice.
