With Sandra Bullock leading the way on Ocean’s Eight, there’s never been a better time to enjoy heist slots. Well, there was, back when George Clooney was leading the way on Ocean’s Eleven, but that’s by the by. Now we’ve seen what Microgaming and ELK have to offer with The Heat Is On and Lake’s Five, which of these slots gives us the ultimate heist experience?
Become A Slot Heist Mastermind
First off we take a look at Microgaming’s The Heat Is On and when we see the scantily clad, buxom police officer and similarly dressed career criminal across the five reels and 45 paylines, the heat is definitely on. Playing like an old arcade game with cartoon style graphics, it’s up to us to use the slot’s two Wild symbols and Free Spins feature to smash and grab at the bank and go on the lam.
This is very different to Lake’s Five, ELK’s take on the heist. Rather than robbing a bank, like ELK’s Wild Seas mobile slot this slot is story-driven and features a range of animal characters. The five in the title are all members of Lake’s gang and bring their own rewards as high paying symbols. As we work our way up the tower to find Lake’s Monkey companion, we play the Heist Bonus Game by triggering the Scatters and enjoy extra Wilds across the reels during our free spins.
A Word From NetEnt
Lake’s Five exudes class and sophistication, akin to the Oceans films which is what ELK was trying to replicate. It’s definitely our top heist slot at the moment but we have to spare a thought for the femme fatales of The Heat Is On, showing how car chases and high-octane thievery is just as enjoyable. Not that we recommend any forms of theft, other than massive slots wins.
