From novels to movies and from movies to video slots: this has been the trend across all themes. The theme of private detectives is no different. There are many famous fictional detectives that were the rage in the middle of the last century. The stories included iconic symbols from the middle of the last century. The video slot Private Eye from Microgaming is set in this period. You can play it at online casinos like 32Red, Lucky Nugget and Platinum Play.

The period symbols that are obsolete now include rotary dial telephone, box camera, old car and pistol. The other symbols recreate the theme and are handcuffs, chalk mark around corpse, whisky, suspect and gangster’s moll. The private eye badge is the wild symbol. The detective is the scatter symbol. In order to further add realism to the theme, there are some suitable win animations. Private Eye is a 243 ways to win slot game. The total bet is 25 times the line bet.

The video slot has two bonus features. The free spins feature is triggered when the newspaper boy symbol appears on reels 3, 4 and 5. First, a newspaper rack with three rows is displayed on the screen. You have to pick a newspaper from each row. You will be awarded up to 20 free spins, a payout multiplier up to 4 times and an instant cash award. The free spins cannot be retriggered.

Solve the Case is a two-level bonus feature on the second screen. It is interwoven completely with the detective theme. It is triggered by the magnifying glass symbol. The first feature is the Clue Bonus. There are a number of clues on a table at the scene of the crime and you have to keep picking clues till the telephone rings. You will be given a cash award for each clue picked. Many video slot bonus games offer a Win All feature that awards payouts for all objects displayed. This is done in an interesting manner in Private Eye. Each clue is examined under a magnifying glass. If the clue has a fingerprint mark then the player is awarded bonuses for all the clues on the table. This also initiates the second level of the bonus. You are taken to an identification parade and pick a suspect. If the fingerprint of the suspect matches with that on the clue then you win the top bonus. Otherwise you get a consolation payout.
