- Slot played on 5×3 grid and 20 paylines
- The max win: 5,000x
- Release Date: May 19, 2022
There’s no doubt that Pragmatic Play is one of the leading providers in the iGaming business. Besides launching up to 5 new slots each month, this brand also develops high-quality bingo and virtual releases, as well as live casino games. Its latest release, The Great Stick-up slot will certainly capture the player’s attention with its interesting gameplay, bonus features and winning potential of up to 5,000x the stake.
Featuring the crime theme, the slot is set in a small North American town in the 60s on a 5×3 grid with 20 paylines and follows the adventures of the gangsters with police on their tale. Quite different from the theme seen in the slot launched just days before this one – Goblin Heist PowerNudge.
According to the paytable, the lady is running the gang as the most valuable symbol. The rest of her crew are also at the higher end of the paytable, as well as the revolver symbol.
Stacks of money bills, handcuffs and something resembling the treasure map bring medium-sized wins. Symbols with the lowest payouts include a smoking pipe, magnifier glass and a hat – everything a good detective will need to catch this group of rascals.
The volatility is high in this game, ranked 5 out of 5 by the developer. Regarding the theoretical RTP, it is slightly above the industry’s average at 96.30%. This slot is suitable for players with different budgets since the wagering starts from €0.20 bet per spin.
Catch The Gang In Free Spins Round
When it comes to the base game, there aren’t any special features to mention, though there is a Wild represented as a detective symbol with the power to substitute for all symbols except Scatters. Speaking of Scatters, the role of this special symbol belongs to the image of the police car light.
Landing 3, 4 or 5 Scatters pays out 2x, 10x or 100x the bet respectively and activates a bonus round with 7 free spins. The scenery changes a bit, with a small wooden prison cell and a Wanted sign appearing outside the right side of the grid. Some positions on reels are also replaced with wooden windows, matching the Sticky Mystery symbol appearing in a prison cell.
The newly introduced Sticky Mystery symbol comes along with a progressive feature since this symbol starts as the card with the lowest payouts and potential upgrades to medium and high-value ones. Whenever the Mystery symbol lands, it remains sticky in its position for the remainder of the free spins. As said, it always opens to reveal the symbol matching the one displayed in a prison box.
Another novelty randomly happening during free spins is the appearance of little overlay star symbols that can land on any normal-sized symbol. When it hits, this special star is collected until another one lands.
Two overlay stars collected upgrade the current Mystery symbol to the more valuable type and award one extra free spin. The progression feature cannot be triggered again and doesn’t reset when the Mystery symbol transforms to the most valuable symbol on the paytable (lady crime boss).
With its latest release Pragmatic Play has once again demonstrated its versatility by launching so many different games in a short while. Players had an opportunity to go on the Norse-inspired adventure with North Guardians, rekindle their passion for more classic games with Fire Strike 2 or help evil creatures in Goblin Heist PowerNudge.
The Great Stick-Up slot provided the opportunity to be a part of the crime organization while getting nice winning along the way. This is yet another high-quality game from a brilliant provider who doesn’t stop to surprise with its amazing products.
