The Heat is On Slot Game Review

This crime-based slot game brings a whole new meaning to the game of cops and robbers. The heat is on refers to the outfits the characters sport in this game, rather than the amount of trouble the robber is in. This release from MahiGaming is already proving a popular slot on online platforms.

This entertaining crime game resembles more Miami Vice than it does to the dark police thrillers we are used to today. Let’s look through the evidence before playing.


The Heat is On gives you a front row seat to the action as behind the reels a police chase takes place with helicopters weaving between building on the hunt for the criminal. The soundtrack of this game is so exhilarating, it will have you on the edge of your seat with every button press. You can feel how light-hearted and fun the developers were being when they put in symbols like a superbike for criminals to ride around! And if that isn’t enough excitement for you, their outfits are anything but conventional – I don’t think any police force would approve! This image is further completed with a pair of fluffy handcuffs, its easy to see this slot does not take itself too seriously. The lower value symbols are your standard 9 – A, with minimum effort being put into their design.

Apart from the sense of excitement from the imagery this slot has a rather simple design. With 3 rows and 5 reels offering players 45 possible paylines this is very much standard for a game of this type. The features in this slot are quite limited, with the exception of two wilds: the cop and the burglar. These could effectively double your chance of hitting the 2,500x your stake top prize. Both of these symbols substitute for others making it easier to gain consecutive lines and the fact there is 2 of them could be just what you need to score that big win. The RTP (Return to Player) of this slot is slightly above average at 96.01%, there is also a bonus feature that makes scoring higher wins possible with this slot.


By landing 3 of the bank scatter symbols you can gain up to 20 free spins plus five symbols, if this isn’t enough it is relatively simple to re-trigger this feature to claim more free spins in game. The number of spins can be doubled by landing a further 2 bang symbols on the second or third reel, if both symbols appear on the same reel (2 or 3) the number of free spins can be multiplied by 4.

CasinoNZ Verdict

Like the robber in this game there are big rewards if you can play it correctly, the top prize in the main game is great and the free spin bonuses are just the icing on the cake.
