Crime Scene slot
If you like pick and click bonus feature you should check Crime Scene slot from NetEnt. It became a continuation of the already existing line of games which is devoted to various TV shows. This time, the plot was taken from a program called “Crime Scene”, where you are invited to try yourself as a detective and conduct your gambling investigation. This slot machine is an excellent idea for those who are always dreaming about being a detective. We hope that the role of Sherlock Holmes will be appropriate for you.
Personal testers opinion about Crime Scene slot
Crime Scene is an old and unpopular slot. The bonus feature is triggered in every 217th spin (statistically 0.46%). 30% of the pool is reserved for the payouts during the bonus feature; rest is for the usual spins. My average winning in the bonus was 20x. The maximum winning during the tests was 151x. Very strange that our testing data differs so much from information that is declared by Netent. Possibly, the reason is an empty prize pool.
Review and recommendations of the testing team
It is a standard slot from this provider, except for the missing of free spins feature.
- In the main game, the slot quite good keeps the balance, by reducing it to the average value of 20x - 50x total bet then compensates for it by triggering a bonus feature or a combination with a win of 15x - 30x total bet. Sticky wild symbols, although they appear very often on gaming reels, usually, do not bring a good result, giving out combinations with a minimum payout. It is only possible in rare cases to get a good arrangement of wild symbols and a winning combination of more than 30x total bets.
- The slot rarely gives a bonus feature. The potential for a big win here is low, and the average value of winning is 40x - 80x total bets. More successful bonus features can bring 150x - 250x total bets. The relative advantage is that slot extremely rare gives minimum winnings during the free spins feature. Usually, the player will progress to 2nd or 3rd level for sure, generating some average winnings. This is the main difference of this slot from the other where winnings from the feature can be between 0x - 10x.
- On the one hand, this slot can be recommended for games with bonus money, but in short sessions, on the other side, there is a risk that the slot will not compensate for the loss in balance by giving a good combination or a bonus feature. Therefore, the recommendations are neutral. When playing with real money, we would recommend trying no more than 100 spins to check the slot (hot or cold), and if the balance losses are not large, you should possibly continue the session and expect a bonus feature.
