Lots of opportunity
There is a 5x3 configuration, and a total of 20 paylines, providing a generous amount of opportunity to make big wins. A minimum bet of $0.01 and a maximum of $5.00 means there’s plenty of range, and something for every kind of player. Even the lazier are catered for, with the option to automate 100 turns. Most of the symbols in the game are based on characters from the show such as Russell and Willows, along with standard CSI icons such as thumbprints and flashlights. The rewards vary depending on the icon, for example matching 5 Russells in a row will net you an impressive 50x return on your original bet, while a row of 5 lab symbols will only multiply your money by 0.75.
Bonus features galore
In addition to the standard slot features, IGT's CSI: Slots offers a variety of bonuses and additional opportunities for fun. The Stokes symbol is a wild, meaning it can stand in for any other symbol in the game, giving you that all-important edge. The Lock ‘n’ Re-Spin icon generates a free spin, allowing you to stack yet more wins on top of your existing pile of gold. If one spin isn’t enough, there’s also a Free Spin symbol, which does what you would expect and generates 30 free spins when it flashes up in a row of three on your screen.
The Crime Scene symbol multiplies your bet by five every time it appears, and if you’re lucky enough to stumble across three of these icons, you’ll unlock a neat mini game. In this interface, your task is to collect pieces of evidence which can then be exchanged for cash prizes.
Play on the road
The original CSI team were often on the road, travelling to far-flung places in their pursuit of justice. The game recognizes that its players may be in a similar situation, and as a result they have made it available on mobile and tablet devices as well as desktop computers. So whether you’re sat at home or chasing murderers across rooftops, you can still entertain yourself with some slots. CSI: Slots is well designed and great fun to play. The impressive range of bonus features means that boredom remains at bay, and there’s likely to be something to please everyone here. What’s more, it’s also significantly safer than engaging in the actual fighting of crime.
