Thief is a science fiction themed online video slot from NetEnt. The game centers around helping a good looking female thief crack a vault to get to what is inside. This game works best with browser based casinos. Thief uses a five reeled twenty five pay line system, with wild symbols, scatters and free spins.
Futuristic Feel and Shiny Symbols
As expected, Thief is set at night, when all good burglaries happen. Not expected is the futuristic side to the game. The background setting ranges from rainy streets to hallways to outside the big vault itself. The game features the regular mundane symbols from the deck of cards, (9, 10, J, Q, K, and Ace) which have been given a shiny and rain slicked look to them.
The rest of the symbols are from the games theme. In the reels a player can find professional burglary equipment of the likes of headgear, grappling hooks, vault locks and watches. The female thief herself makes an appearance as an expanding Wild, found only on the center reel.
Expanding Wilds and Bonus Features
The female thief in Thief is the games expanding wild, and as previously stated can only be found on the center reel. She expands during normal play to take over other positions, and also triggers the free spins bonus round should a player find three or more of her. She can substitute for any other symbol in the game except for the scatter symbol.
There are two types of free spins in Thief; found from the two types of scatter symbols, the regular blue scatter and the red adrenaline scatter. These can be found anywhere across the reels. Three regular scatters or a combination of regular and adrenaline scatters will reward the player with a regular ten free spins. Once the free spins are triggered, you have the opportunity of hitting three more scatters too win an additional ten free spins on top of the original ones.
Adrenaline scatters are a unique feature in Thief, and three combined will land you the game’s premier feature, The Adrenaline Free Spins. This feature begins with ten free adrenaline spins, in which only the thief tool, adrenaline scatter and diamond symbols can appear, either contributing to big wins or more free spins. The Diamond symbol can only be found in this feature and is thus one of the highest symbols in the game.
Additional Game Play Options
Another feature is the skill stop button. This button allows you to spin and stop the reels as you wish, so not only leaving things up to chance. This is extremely useful if you see a combination that could lead to a big win.
The new auto play button is also a great tool in the slot Thief. This tool allows the player to set the parameters for the game that they wish, and then leave the game to spin itself. Like checking bet values in Crown Oaks Day betting, in this mode you can also check on the value of a symbol simply by clicking on it instead of having to go back to the paytable to check.
