‘The Heat is On‘ at Microgaming these days, where the world’s oldest and largest developer of online and mobile casino pokies has just released its latest reel spinner, entitled – you guessed it – The Heat is On. (Not to be confused with NuWorks 2011 release of a studly fireman-themed pokies by the same name).
Microgaming’s new mobile casino pokies was recently released for all major operating systems, including Mac and Windows PC, as well as Android and iOS smartphone and tablet devices.
This is not your everyday cops and robbers game, either. It stars two beautifully buxom ladies – one being the cop, the other the thief – and up to 80 retriggerable free spins!
The Heat Is On Pokies
Microgaming is clearly appealing to both genders with this latest release – drawing in men who enjoy curvaceous females in uniform and/or villainous roles, while attracting ladies who appreciate a woman in a position of power (for good or evil).
The Heat Is On Pokies is packed with 5 reels and 45 paylines, accepting incremental wagers starting at $0.50 and scaling up to $100. It comes with a max 10,000 coin prize, plus dual wild symbols and free spin scatters.
Aesthetically speaking, Microgaming did a great job, using vibrant 2D (cartoon style) graphics, action-packed animations and dramatic sound effects to bring it all together. The symbols include two ladies, the Cop and the Thief, both of which are wilds, and the Bank scatter.
Players will also see (in order of value, greatest to least) Suitcases of Gold Bars, Helicopters, Police Cars, Motorcycles, Bombs (with a precarious 00:03 remaining), and generic card values of A, K, Q, J and 10.
The Cop and Thief are both wild, and work in tandem with each other to create winning combinations across the reels. As usual, they can substitute for all other symbols, except scatters.
When a player lands 5 Cop Wilds on a single payline, it pays the new mobile casino pokies’ highest prize of 10,000 coins. The same payout is available if 5 Thief Wilds land on a line. If a line is filled with a mixture of these wild women, the prize is still a generous one at 5,000 coins.
New Mobile Casino Pokies Best Feature
The Bank symbol is the Scatter, and awards anywhere from a lowly 5 to a staggering 80 free spins, plus up to 1,500 coins. Scatter pays are awarded based on how many land on the reels. Only one at a time can appear on each reel 1, 4 and 5, while up to two can land on reels 2 and 3, for a max total of 7 scatters per spin. That combination grants the 1,500 coin payout.
To trigger free spins in The Heat Is On Pokies, you’ll need to land a Bank Scatter in any position on reels 1, 2 and 3. Doing so is worth 5 free spins. If additional scatters appear on reels 4 and/or 5, the player receives 10 or 20 free spins respectively.
Now here’s the kicker. If the above occurs, and reel 2 or 3 strikes two scatters, it will double the total number of free spins awarded. Should reels 2 and 3 both have a pair of scatters, it will quadruple the number of free spins. With all 7 scatters lit up, players will get the max 80 free spins. And yes, those free spins can also be reriggered.
