Here’s a quick peek at the different bonus rounds:
The Scuffle Shuffle bonus is played when a wild or any of the 4 kops pitch on the third reel. Just like a deck of cards, the symbols can be shuffled up to 5x times. The scatters, 5 low value and the kop symbols are transformed into the symbol that triggered it.
Second Chance Bonus Trigger
The feature is played when the Bonus symbols pops up on the second and third reel. The symbols that appears on the fourth reel, one of them becomes a bonus symbol that shoots through to the first and third reels. Basically all the symbols on the 4th and 5th reels are shuffled randomly.
On each winning spin the Symbol Upgrade feature can be triggered. The symbols that formed the winning combination are upgraded which gives you an even bigger payout. If the winning combination was formed with the most valuable symbol that symbol becomes a wild.
During this bonus feature the multiplier can be anything from 2x to 10x and it’s applied to the Scuffle Shuffle, Symbol Upgrade and Shuffle Up bonus rounds.
The Progressive Picks feature is initiated when the scatter (Keystone Kops badge) pitches on reels 2 and 3 and the Pilfering Pooch symbol on the 4th reel. A new screen opens up displaying vaults that showcases 1 of 2 fixed jackpots and 1 of 2 progressive jackpots. The silver and the gold coins pay as much as 700 coins while the silver or
gold bars triggers the progressive jackpot.
Pie Patrol Free Spins
The Pie Patrol Free Spins feature (played on a 100 payline set) is triggered when the scatter (Keystone Kops Badge) appears on the 2nd and 3rd reels along with the vault door scatter on reel 4 – 8 free spins is awarded. Should another 2 or 3 scatters appear you’ll get an extra 2 to 8 free spins.
This is where it becomes interesting. The free spins feature has 2 extra bonus rounds. If the chef’s hat appears on the third reel the Random Wild feature is played. Symbols that appear on the centre reel are turned into wilds. When the pie-man hurls dough at the reels 6 to 32 symbols can be transformed into wilds! Plus, there’s Random Multiplier on each free spin with multipliers from 2x and 10x. All in all it’s a very lucrative free spins feature.
