All is not how it seems in the city of lights, Jacques the thief is on the town, and he’s after your money! Luckily, he’s also not a terribly good thief, so you may end up coming home with more than you planned. This video slot from Betsoft might be good fun and looks great, but let’s see how the financials work out over time.
This slot is laid out in the typical 5x3 fashion, with a noble 30 paylines. The volatility is low and the RTP a favourable 96.92%, signalling regular payouts that will go easy on your bank balance – in fact we played for over an hour without needing to top up, which is insane. It’s a very playable slot, with three good bonus features that you’ll see regularly enough to warrant the time put in.
Winning big in the city of love
The look and feel of this slot are very attractive, with a moonlit Paris providing the backdrop to a range of Parisian paraphernalia, which include croissants, the Eiffel Tower and lovers, amongst others. The soundtrack harks of romantic evenings in the French capital, and really gives a sense of being there – albeit stereotypically.
There’s no wild symbol in this slot, and to be honest we really missed it. The rest is a little too standard to lift it out of the hole the lack of wild leaves.
Chase the rewards
To its redemption, there are some cool features, and ‘instant coin rewards’ is one of them. Get the guard, badge and thief symbols across the first three reels and there’ll be an instant cash prize awarded.
Chase free spins is another nice feature. Get three or more badge symbols anywhere across the reels and this feature is triggered. It’ll give you five spins, but it’s not so common.
Get three or more painting symbols and ‘caught in the museum’ will be triggered. It’s a bonus round that takes you to a separate screen, choose between the artworks Jacques plans to nick and wait to see if he makes it out before Jerome Le Baste catches him. If it goes in your favour, you’ll get from 10x to 30x your bet, and it’s a nice cartoon to watch too.
A Night in Paris video slot is an odd one, at first it looks really appealing, but when you start to play the holes appear. Payouts aren’t huge and the battering your wallet takes depends on the time you’re willing to put in before you bail.
We felt it lacks a bit of personality after a while, but the theme is endearing, and the features do hit nice and frequently. Maybe the takeaway here is that first impressions don’t always last, but rather than being disappointed it’s best to just plough on until you start to love it. There, a romantic tip from Paris.
