If you turn on your TV these days, chances are that the first thing you’ll see is a program like CSI or NCIS. Crime scene investigation dramas are all the rage these days, and Crime Scene brings this theme to the video slot format. The reel symbols include Bloody Shoe Print, Orange Forensic Goggles, Briefcase, Handgun and generic playing cards symbols from Aces down to Tens. The best paying symbol is the Bloody Shoe Print, which is worth 750 credits if you spin in 5 of them in to an active pay-line. The Orange Forensic Goggles is the next best symbol and it is worth the 400 coins if you spin 5 of them into an active pay-line.
The Police Shield symbol is Wild and will substitute for all other symbols except Scatters. The Police Shield Wild is unique in that it is a Sticky Wild that will hold its position on the reel for a number of turns, increasing your chances of spinning in winning combinations. The number of turns that it will wait on the reel for is random but is indicated by a number which you will be able to see when the Wild first appears. The Police Shield Wild also triples the value of any winning combinations that are made using it.
The Finger Print Scatter is the key to unlocking the Bonus Feature in Crime Scene. If you spin in 3 or more Finger Print Scatters, you will be taken to a new screen where you will see 30 Folders. You will be prompted to pick a Folder. Each Folder will either reveal a Coin prize, a piece of Evidence, an X or a V. When a piece of Evidence is revealed it is placed at the bottom of the screen along and given the value of the previous Coin prize as an Evidence Bonus. All Coin prizes revealed after this have the Evidence Bonus added to it. Revealing an X will end the Bonus Feature, although revealing a V prior to this will give you a second chance. The Bonus Feature is quite fun and a very lucrative part of the game.
The Return to Player (RTP) for Crime Scene is 96.7%, which is pretty good value for a Video Slot. The lack of a Free Spins Round is a bit of a drawback, but the Sticky Wild feature is nice and it can result in some good wins. The Bonus Feature is also good fun and can bring in a decent win.
