The criminal underworld is out to make a profit, with the long arm of the law chasing them down! Will you side with the bandits or with the police? Whatever you choose, this choice will be profitable in the Cops 'n' Bandits slots machine game!
Like other cartoonish games such as "Funky Fruits" and "Desert Treasure II", "Cops 'n' Bandits" features original cartoon art describing a colorful world of cartoonish crime and wild antics. The game will easily tug on your heart strings, but the art serves mainly as a backdrop to a highly profitable game that will let you steal a fortune and get away with it.
"Cops 'n' Bandits" is a 5 reel 30 line slots machine game. The game is based around 5 spinning reels, each emblazoned with the symbols of the game across its face. When the reels spin they randomize the board, creating different combinations of matching symbols. The goal of the game is to have a matching set of symbols form across one or more of the pay-lines, from left to right – whenever this happens, you win a prize! The prize is based on the amount of money you've been betting, multiplied by an amount based on the chance that each specific combination will appear, with the highest being 5,000 times the original bet. With 30 individual pay-lines, each capable of winning a prize of up to 5,000 times the original bet, this is one game you should play till you win.
To make sure you have the edge on the game, the game features free spins with a special locked wild system.
Whenever three police badges appear anywhere on the reels, the klaxons will howl and you'll get to choose one of the badges (or two, if four or more badges appear!) –each badge hides a number denoting the amount of free spins you get to make. These spins are based on the bet you have when you won the feature, and will spin without the need for more bets.
During the free spins, the special wild lock is activated. Whenever a police constable symbol is adjacent to one of the criminal symbols, the criminal symbol becomes a locked in place and gains the "Wild" attribute, substituting for all other symbols as needed and making it easier to form combinations. These symbols will remain locked until all free spins have been spun, and all rewards have been claimed.
Another bonus feature is the lineup feature. Whenever three "lineup" symbols appear across the board, you get to go to the police lineup. There, you will see six suspects, and will have to figure out who the real criminal is. When you do, you will get a bounty based on the number of guesses you needed to figure him out. So guess carefully!

Tips from the pros
Mastering "Cops 'n' Bandits" means mastering all its different features. The first thing you need to realize is that the big money is in the extra spins – the locked wilds make sure you finish those spins with a huge fortune. However, since those free spins are based on the bet you had when you won them, the higher the bet the more you'll win. So be brave and bet high, and it will all be worth it.
It is also very important to understand the lineup feature. In it, the less guesses you need to figure out who the real culprit is, the more money you'll win – so you need to watch the criminals closely and try to ascertain who of them is giving the right tells. Ask yourself, who of them looks the guiltiest?
