IGT Keystone Kops Slot Review and Free Play

Keystone Kops: Demo

Based on the slapstick adventures of the world’s most incompetent policemen, Keystone Kops is a 5 reel, 30 payline video slot from IGT. It comes with a pair of free spin rounds complete with added wilds, 5 base game modifiers and a progressive jackpot. Play on all devices from 30p to £120 per spin.

The Keystone Kops first hit silent movie screens in 1912 and now, over 100 years later, they’re still the byword for bumbling rozzers. That slapstick theme is evident throughout this video slot version. The reels include cartoon whistles, truncheons, handcuffs, telephones and a quartet of cops. There’s also a wild and a selection of police badges that are instrumental in triggering the main feature rounds. There are 3 of these – which feature you land depends on which police badge falls on reel 4 on the triggering spin:

  • Pilfering Pooch Free Spins Bonus feature – on offer here are 8 free spins on an expanded 100-payline reel set. Hope to see the dog’s bone which can appear after each spin to trigger the Snaking Wilds – a Keystone Kop wanders round the reels after the bone, leaving a trail of up to 21 wilds as he goes. You can also benefit from a random multiplier up to 10x on each free spin.
  • Pie Patrol Free Spins Bonus feature – you’ll get 8 free spins on a 100-payline machine here too. If the hat symbol lands on reel 3, it turns the whole of the reel wild. Extra wilds can hit on other reels here too. As with the Pilfering Pooch Free Spins Bonus feature, a multiplier up to 10x can be randomly applied to your winnings.
  • Progressive Picks Bonus feature – pick from the selection of vaults shown. Find 3 that match and that’s the award you’ll get. There are 2 fixed jackpots and 2 progressive jackpots to be won.

Keystone Kops also comes with 5 base game bonus features:

  • Scuffle Shuffle feature – land a full stack of 1 of the higher value cop symbols on reel 3 to trigger this. Symbols will then shuffle up to 5 times to create the optimal combination.
  • Shuffle Up feature – similar to the Scuffle Shuffle feature, this randomly triggered extra moves symbols on reels 4 and 5 into new and hopefully winning positions.
  • Symbol Upgrade feature – also triggered at random, this transforms the symbols into a winning combination to a higher value symbol win.
  • Mystery Multiplier feature – does exactly what it says on the tin, boosting payouts by up to 10x.
  • Second Chance Bonus feature – this offers a second shot at triggering the bonus if you land 2 bonus scatters but just miss out on the third.

As you can see, there’s plenty of variety on offer here. It’s not the most volatile game you’ll see though. In fact, the variance is in the medium range offering a nice balanced range of payouts. Keystone Kops is an amalgamation of 3 of IGT’s brick and mortar casino video slots. Some of the developer’s live casino conversions haven’t impressed visually but Keystone Kops is nicely done.

The anarchic theme will be an acquired taste for some. If you enjoy video slots that combine a comedic theme with plenty of extras then it would be criminal not to consider Keystone Kops. If you want something more volatile, Prowling Panther or Shamrockers Eire to Rock from IGT are worth trying your luck at.
