High Street Heist Slot Review 2022
We love testing and writing slot reviews. We love the new concepts, the new themes, the new mechanics, and the unreal potential that some slots have. But we’re thinking its about time that we gave up the grind, put on a mask and rinsed the world-renowned jewellery store for all its worth instead.
Who within the Fruity Slots criminal enterprise do you think would in charge of driving the getaway vehicle? and who do you think would be in charge of crowd control, or safecracking? Now that we think about it, the logistics of the whole thing seems rather problematic considering our lacking experience, and we’d almost definitely end up in jail, but do you have what it takes?
Admitedly, we don’t quite have the minerals or the know how to pull it off, so perhaps instead of giving up slot reviews we could write one about those who do have the expertise instead? High Street Heist from Quickspin will have you joining a gang of criminals in the heist of a lifetime where you could be made for life, or put away for life. Sophisticated suits and creepy masks are a must have, but don’t forget your weapon, because you’re gonna need it.
Quickspin generally aren’t providers who put on a disappointing show, so we’re very much looking forward to being witnesses to the criminal gangs latest sting.
High Street Heist Theme
High Street Heist is pretty much what you’d expect from a game about a heist.
In the background, you’ll see an expensive and sophisticated store filled with glistening diamonds, but the shop is empty, and the glass strewn across the floor tells us that those good for nothing reprobates has arrived to take their loot.
In Free Spins, the forced entry is all but confirmed by motion detecting lasers that seemingly covers every corner of the store, but its childs play for our gang of experienced criminals.
High Street Heist has a great aesthetic to it, but that’s something that we’ve come to expect from Quickspin titles.
High Street Heist: Betting and Symbols
Betting options in High Stree Heist are as broad as they always are, with options that start from £/€0.20 per spin and top out at £/100 per spin. There are lots of different options in between the two, so there should be an ideal setting for all here.
In terms of symbols, the highest paying symbol in the game is the Diamond Symbol, followed by the Red, Orange, Green and Purple Robber symbols. Low paying symbols are the Gold rings with the red and green diamond, and the plain gold, silver and broze rings.
There’s also a Wild Symbol, which substitutes for all symbols.
High Street Heist: The Base Game and Features
High Street Heiest is a 5 reel slot with 32+ ways to win.
To form a win, you’ll need matching symbols to connect from left to right on adjacent reels, starting from the left-most reel. In the middle 2 rows, you’ll notice symbols hidden behind panes of glass.
Once the glass is broken, then the ways to win increases along with the potential to land larger wins.
Breaking the Glass
Symbols are stacked in High Street Heist, and landing stacked symbols in view is the key to breaking the glass.
One or more full stacks of any of the same symbol unlocks all positions on its respective reel and awards a re-spin. Re-spins continue as long as stacked symbols continue to land and clear glass panes.
High Street Heist Free Spins
Heist Free Spins are triggered by breaking all of the glass spaces on the middle 2 rows.
Heist Free Spins starts with all positions unlocked and 1024 ways to win. To aim of the game in Heist Free Spins is once again landing stacks, but instead of breaking glass, it fills the Heist Meter.
The meter takes 4 charges to fill completely, and when it does it will convert the lowest valued robber symbol into a Diamond symbol, and award +2 Free Spins.
When all Robber Symbols are converted, then filling the heist meter will award a +1x multiplier on all diamond symbols and award +2 Free Spins.
High Street Heist: Bonus Buy
If you’re outside of the UK then you can utilise a Bonus Buy option in High Street Heist.
The cost of this is 111x your total bet, and the RTP is 96.77%
High Street Heist: Our Verdict
We love Quickspin titles as much as the next person does, but High Street Heist just doesn’t excite us like Cabin Crashers, Cash Truck, Book of Duat or any other recent title.
We still think its a good slot, but it’s rather simple overall and it feels like you need a fair bit of momentum in order to get something good from the bonus round. Slots like Cabin Crashers can kick off at any given moment, but High Street Heist requries a fair amount of collecting before things really get exciting.
The Base Game seems a little bit dull too. 34 ways to win is the default setting, and it’ll grow as you unlock panes until it reaches 1024 ways to win and the bonus round, but 1024 ways isn’t exactly ‘massive’. In fact, it’s the default for many other titles without the need to unlock extra spaces.
We tested High Street Heist and we bought our fair share of bonuses to see what it could do, but often it yielded rather disappointing results. That’s just how it goes in slots sometimes though. At its best, High Street Heist is capable of some formidable wins with a 21,160x maximum capability, but we’re a bit sketpical about how realistic this is. Nothing about the gameplay we’ve seen really suggests that it could get anywhere near such a figure.
Overall, we think High Street Heist might scratch an itch if you’re jonesing for a Quickspin fix, but we think you’ll quickly realise that there’s much more alluring titles elsewhere.
