About Beat the Bobbies
In the Beat the Bobbies video slot from Eyecon, cat burglar Penny needs your help to steal the crown jewels and make a quick enough getaway that the Old Bill won’t catch her. Played on a five reel, three-row grid with 243 ways to win, this is a fun-to-look-at heist-themed game with a nice cartoon design.
Taking place in London and set against a Buckingham Palace backdrop, Penny not only needs to avoid the long arm of the law. But also the butler, a royal guardsman wearing a bearskin, the cleaning lady, an old man, another woman, the postman and even a British Bulldog all of which are joined on the reels by a ring, a tiara, a crown and some gemstone symbols.
The hapless copper is the game’s wild and can only appear in the middle three rows. This Bobby can replace all other symbols apart from Penny the cat burglar, who is the game’s scatter. Because Penny is all about sneaking in and getting out quietly, there is no soundtrack to Beat the Bobbies, but there is plenty of suspenseful noises when you spin the reels of this easy-on-the-eye game.

Beat the Bobbies Bonus Features
The game’s main feature revolves around free spins, the volatility of which is entirely customisable. By landing three, four or five, Penny the cat burglar scatter symbols on the same spin. You will receive 5X, 10X or even 50X payouts on your bet.

What’s more, should you happen to land the Penny scatters once again, you can trigger even more free spins. These spins could potentially retrigger the free spins up to twenty times which means you could end up winning 320 free spins with a 2X multiplier or 128 free spins with a 5X multiplier.
