We’ve reviewed more than a few crime-themed online slots in the past and we are pleased to announce the release of Jewel Thief, a brand new online slot developed by Random Logic. Most of the games in this genre tend to have a cartoonish feel to them – perhaps to lighten the mood of what is, after all, illegal behaviour – and this slot is no exception, featuring a range of cheery characters.
Jewel Thief features five reels and fifty paylines and the reels are set against an almost real life background of gloomy streets and police cars. There’s a great range of crime-related symbols including handcuffs, a walkie-talkie, a gun, a police car, police dog and the three main characters.
As far as special symbols go there’s a police medal wild and a scatter which is a necklace on display (the target for our eponymous character).
The necklace is the focus of this whole game and it’s also the scatter symbol which triggers the free spins round. You can win the following by landing the necklace anywhere on the reels:
- Three necklaces – 10 free spins
- Four necklaces – 15 free spins
- Five necklaces – 25 free spins
The more spins the better of course but you’re more likely to trigger the lower number. More spins can be triggered during this feature and it’s also important to note that the Happy Run bonus can only be activated from the free spins.
Happy Run Bonus
As mentioned above, this feature can only be grabbed by first winning some free spins. It’s triggered by landing the thief on reel one and the police car on reel five and if you manage that you will get to pick items hidden by the thief.
Each pick is worth a cash prize but for the big bucks of course you need to locate the necklace.
Jewel Thief Online Slot Playing Tips
If you’re playing for the big money then you need to keep your paylines and stakes up; if however you just want to go for the bonus features you can reduce your paylines as they won’t affect the scatter symbols.
This is a well-designed and entertaining slot; the only downside is that you have to jump through a couple of hoops to reach the Happy Run bonus game but the free spins feature seems fairly easy to activate.
