Are you ready to breach some rules (in a fictional fashion) or take the other side of the thin blue line and nab some fake baddies? Unusual Suspects from Games Global partner Northernlights may be the spot. A moustachioed investigator fights a band of evil guys—if one foot soldier and four bosses are a gang—in a swinging atmosphere. Wannabe heroes and villains can activate Wild Sticky Frames, nudging, collecting, free spins, and extra buy/gamble choices.
The base game is played downtown, so initially. However, activating the bound round takes play to a detective’s office, which slows the game considerably. Odd, but if we want to make the game phase shift positive, this manner boosts the detective angle. The soundtrack is a jazzy big band piece that gets the foot tapping. First, there hasn’t been a particularly unique whole. The night is young.
uncommon Suspects’ gamble feature adjacent to the buy function is uncommon. After choosing a wager of 10 p/c to £/€20, players may buy 38.6x free spins or gamble for bonus round admission. An customizable odds and costs wheel determines whether free spins are awarded. Unusual Suspects’ collecting feature might upgrade free spins. Changes in bets save level progress. Although lesser models are available, Unusual Suspects is a medium volatile game with a default RTP of 96.05%.
On a 5×4 game panel, players have 20 paylines to evaluate wins. Line wins start on the left reel and pay left to right. Striped 10-A card royals pay 1 times the bet for a 5 OAK hit, while handcuffs, a gun, dynamite, and a bag of money pay 2 to 10 times the wager for 5 premium symbols.
Unlikely Slot Features
Unusual Suspects relies on all-reel wilds. A line of 5 wilds pays 10x the stake and can substitute any pay symbol. Wild symbols also leave a frame around their landing. More wilds or another Golden Wild symbol appear when a Golden Wild lands. Wilds in framed positions raise the multiplier by +1 up to x5.
Detective Wild Bonus
The Detective symbol fills all framed spaces with wild symbols. A payline’s multipliers apply to any win. After the Detective Wild bonus, all sticky frames are removed from the reels in basic game. Free spins have sticky frames till the round concludes.
Free Spins Boost
Scatters can appear anywhere on the grid. They contribute 1 token to the Booster Meter, which needs 50 tokens, when 2 are visible. If 2 scatters land on top 3 rows, Nudging Respins begin. Any scatter-containing reel is held and shoved down 1 row while the others respin.
Big Boss Free Spins
3, 4, or 5 scatters provide 10, 15, or 20 free spins. The Bonus Trail collects Detective emblems during the round:
Finding 3 Detectives unlocks Big Boss 1, which gives +5 free spins and x2 multiplier.
Six Detectives unlock Big Boss 2, which gives +5 free spins with x3 multiplier.
Catching 9 Detectives unlocks Big Boss 3, which gives +5 free spins and x5 multiplier.
Unlock Big Boss 4 with 12 Detectives for +5 free spins and x10 multiplier.
Big Boss 1 unlocks after free spins and a full Booster Meter.
Strange Suspects: Slot Verdict
Unusual Suspects’ ‘unusualness’ may not have excited us at first, but it has a few elements that could. Framed posture may throw potential players. Many mechanisms are bound to a fixed number of spins and activate on the last spin. No, Unusual Suspects keeps onto them (in the standard game) until the Detective symbol hits to add wilds to each framed cell. Great when a nice stack of frames is filled and something interesting happens. This may not be ideal for clockwork players who don’t want to hold till framed spots are utilised. Wilds that re-land on framed positions get multipliers, making the wait more bearable.
Free spins are increased since frames stay on the grid until the round concludes. Whatever number of Detectives hits and is gathered Big Bass Bonanza-style on the progress meter. Still not happy with the basic game location. An office, so much paperwork? Somewhere more exciting could have boosted enjoyment. We may be nitpicking, but Unusual Suspects’ features flow well despite the dull bonus round. Not bad a top win at 12,500 times the bet, so fingers crossed as many multipliers gather together when playing Unusual Suspects.
When examined individually, the traits may not be exceptional. Combine them, and Unusual Suspects gives keyboard cops ‘n’ robbers something new to flare up.
