Burglar Bert and Sergeant Bell take a trip to Sin City in Cops ‘n’ Robbers Vegas Vacation, a 5 reel, 20 payline game from Novomatic. There are plenty of opportunities to make off with some swag courtesy of the 4 base game modifiers and the quartet of bonus features that offer free spins, pick me rounds and cash trails. Stakes start at 40p per spin.
Novomatic has really upped its game with the design of Cops ‘n’ Robbers Vegas Vacation which looks rather impressive. A night time Vegas street scene forms the backdrop the reels. You’ll see neon playing card symbols alongside a road sign, dice and the Cops ‘n’ Robbers logo. Helping to create those winning lines is a wild that substitutes for everything bar the bonus and awards payouts of up to 25 times your total bet per payline.
Burglar Bert is central to the action on this Vegas trip. He can conjure up 1 of 4 modifier extras during the base game:
- Dynamite Wins feature – if you spin is a loser, Bert can help things out by blowing up the reels. A new set of symbols drops into place, hopefully offering a winning combination.
- Bert’s Going Wild feature – watch as Bert sneaks onto the reels and leaves a trail of wilds.
- Reel Raider feature – Bert swings across the reels on a rope, dragging the first reel with him. Copies of that first reel are dropped into place on adjacent reels to create a new winning combo.
- Bert’s Wild Giveaway feature – Bert drops wild symbols onto reel 5. These move across the screen one reel at a time. More wilds are added until Bert is disturbed.
Land the bonus symbol on reels 1 and 3 then a special bonus symbol on reel 5 and you’ll activate 1 of the 4 features:
- Find Bonzo a Bone Bonus feature – choose from bones to reveal a cash prize of better still a bone which upgrades you to a better bonus feature.
- Spotlight Wilds Free Spins feature – you’ll be given 5 free spins here. Watch out for the spotlight which adds at least 1 wild on each free spin.
- On The Run feature – roll the dice to move Bert along the cash trail and hopefully avoid the attentions of Sergeant Bell. Win cash prizes as you go. Enter the Golden Trail for even bigger prizes. If caught, you’ll face an ID parade. If identified, its game over. If not, you’ll go again.
- Daylight Robbery Free Spins feature – watch out for the bouncing wilds which are in play here. You’ll get at least 4 to start with more added throughout. Payouts benefit from a 2x multiplier here too. The goal is for Bert to try and rob the casino. If he manages that, there’s a jackpot prize of 1,000 times your stake on offer.
Well we weren’t expecting this when we fired up Cops ‘n’ Robbers Vegas Vacation. The design is certainly a step up from Novomatic’s norm and the range of extras is much wider than we’ve become accustomed to. The features and modifiers come along at regular intervals making it a good pick if you like plenty of variety in your play.
This Vegas Vacation is an entertaining one – combining high spec sound and visuals with some interesting extras, the latest outing for these bumbling Cops ‘N’ Robbers is certainly worth a spin.
