There is only one bonus feature when playing Art of the Heist and it is active on every spin. The robber starts in the top left corner of the reels and will snake across all the symbols as you spin. The robber moves forward 3 spaces if the ‘Phone’ symbol lands where he currently resides. If the Chest Wild symbol lands on the robber either 1 or 2 free spins will be added to the free spin counter at the bottom right of the reels. If the ‘Painting’ symbol lands on the robber you trigger the bonus feature and are taken to screen with a map of the museum. You start with 7 keys and four lives. Move through the rooms using your keys to find treasures. Each room costs one key. If you are found by the security guard you lose a life and an additional key. Some rooms contain additional keys. The bonus feature ends when you run out of keys, run out of lives or find the room with the switch to turn off the alarm. If while traveling over the reels the robber crosses a ‘Mummy’ symbol he will move back two spaces. Likewise, if he crosses a ‘Security Guard’ symbol he will be detained and unable to move for the next three spins. When the robber reaches the bottom right corner of the reels you are awarded all the free spins that have been banked. During the free spins stacked Wild symbols are present on the reels. Free spins cannot be retriggered.
Art of the Heist offers an interesting selection of bonus features, even if they aren’t the most original we’ve ever seen, combines this with an attractive House Edge and wraps all this up in a user interface that is visually attractive and appealing. Overall this is s a good game.
