The classic Cops ‘n’ Robbers fruit machine has entertained pub-goers for decades and has already served as inspiration for more than one online slots rendition. Now slots developers Inspired Entertainment are bringing this beloved brand back with a shiny new Megaways version. The graphics are true to the familiar old-school style, but the action has been brought bang up to date with up to 117,649 ways to win and all the exciting bonus features you’d expect from a quality modern slot. Grab your loot sack and get ready to help Bert, the robber, outrun the cops to earn yourself a cut of the spoils!

Pros & Cons

  • Retro aesthetics
  • Choice of two free spins games
  • Free spins win multiplier is not limited
  • Multipliers in chase bonus are limited to x5
  • Slightly below-average RTP
  • Competing against many other Megaways slot options

How to Play

Select your stake from the stake menu, hit spin, and symbols will drop on the reels, including the horizontal reel at the top. Just like in the original smash hit Bonanza Megaways, the vertical reels will randomly display between 2 and 7 icons, resulting in a grid of up to 117,649 winning ways. Wins occur when matching symbols line up from the leftmost reel, with each winning combination triggering a cascade. Wins greater than 5x activate the free spins gamble feature, where you can risk everything for free spins or more coins. And that’s not all there is to the base game. The police lamp perched on top of the grid will randomly flash and either add Mystery symbols if it flashes blue or trigger a sequence of games featuring increasing Megaways if it flashes red.

Symbols

Cops ‘n’ Robbers Megaways’ symbols are rendered in a colourful retro style that fans of the original legendary slot machine should instantly recognise. There are playing card symbols from 10 to Ace, which provide the game’s lowest wins, and these are joined by more thematic symbols like Police Cars, Loot Bags, and Cops. The Cops ‘n’ Robbers logo is the game’s highest paying symbol and the Bulldog is Wild, substituting for any symbols except the Bonus Scatter symbol.

Bonuses

Cops ‘n’ Robbers Megaways offers a choice of two main bonus games, triggered by landing three or more Scatters.

Bonus Name Bonus Explanation
Free Spins

If you select the Free Spins bonus round, you’ll get 8 free spins, plus an extra 2 free spins for every Scatter above three that you land.

  • Every winning combination increases the win multiplier by +1 for the rest of the bonus round.
  • Bonzo the dog can randomly wake up and move across the top reel. If a Wild symbol lands in the reel beneath him, he’ll turn the whole reel Wild.
Chase Bonus

If you select the Chase Bonus, you’ll move to a new board to play a special bonus game.

  • Roll dice to move the robber around the board and collect wins.
  • You get three free moves before the cop starts to chase.
  • The bonus round ends when the cop catches up to the robber.
