I love watching detective and private eye's TV series. There have been lots of them and most of them are really fun and entertaining to watch. I especially love one old British TV serial, can't remember the name now, but his partner is a ghost, who got killed in one of their missions together, then came back to assist his partner as usual, in a ghost form that only his partner can see. Real fun that. Then there's that handsome hulk Tom Selleck with his Mike Hammer series. Must have made millions of gals swooned. Hahaha.

This Private Eye game isn't about Mike Hammer, or Jack Hammer, or whatever Hammer, but it's a game that will inevitably hammer your wallet in the long run. I got hammered in my first run. Damn! The logo 'Private Eye' is the Wild symbol, 5 of which pays a very low 1000x the line bet. It substitutes for other symbols except for the Scatter and Bonus symbols, doesn't do anything else, making it a dumb Wild symbol. The Detective is the Scatter symbol, paying 100x the total bet for 5 of him, but also doesn't do anything else. Yep, yet another dumb symbol. The Newspaper Boy is the Free Spins Scatter symbol, it doesn't pay for itself, but getting 3, 4 or 5 of them triggers the Free Spins game. Pick 3 newspapers to reveal more free spins, multipliers or cash prizes. The maximum is 20 free spins with a 4x multiplier, which isn't really good enough.

There is also a Bonus symbol. appearing only on reels 1, 2 and 3, and getting these trigger a Bonus Feature game. Pick clues to win cash prizes. Getting a Fingerprint symbol wins all the available prizes and award the Mugshot Bonus game, whereby you pick one of the 5 suspects to win additional cash prizes. A ringing phone ends the Bonus game. The other symbols in the game pay from a very low 500x down to 50x the line bet for 5 of each kind. A very low paytable, but a typical one for most 243-ways game. Not to my liking nonetheless.
My few plays on this Private Eye game didn't go well at all. I only managed to get very low payouts from both the Free Spins games as well as from the Bonus games, ranging from 10x to 20x my bet amount. In one instance, in the clues-picking Bonus game, I managed to get all the clues correctly, winning all the available prizes, including picking the correct suspect from the 5 Mugshot photos, but the total amount was only a miserable 44x my bet amount. Not even 50x. That was really disappointing, considering having won the maximum possible in 2 separate Bonus games, which should have paid at least a 60x to 75x bet win. Nope, no more future plays on this Private Eye game. It's just not worth it.

Private eye slot game is mainly based on the novels and movies which its main character, the confident and hard boiled Philip Marlowe epitomizes this genre. Thus this is also another piece of work of Microgaming. The available symbols for this slot game include Handcuffs, Chalk Mark around the corpse, Cash and Whisky, Suspect. The Private Eye Badge is the wild symbol and the Private Eye himself is the scatter symbol. The Free Spins symbol is the Newspaper Boy selling the extra edition with the latest crime news. The Bonus symbol is a set of clues under a magnifying glass. Both these symbols activate features linked to their content.

I believe you guys can see that many of the symbols have appropriate animations. The pistol fires a few shots with bang noises and this is something which I think is fantastic.The best animation is in the Private Eye symbol, where the private eye walks with a swagger typical of his ilk. Private Eye is a 243 ways to win slot game. Three or more like symbols appearing from left to right but in any position on the reels results in payouts. Players can wager up to ten coins per payline. 10 coins is considered a good betting amount per hand and I hope you guys can stand higher chance to win big amount. As is usual, I can see that Private Eye slot game has a free spins feature. It is triggered when the Newspaper Boy symbol appears on reels 3, 4 and 5. The free spins parameters are chosen through a random selection process. A newspaper rack with three rows is displayed. Selecting a newspaper on the first row reveals up to 20 free spins. Selecting a newspaper on the second row reveals a multiplier up to 4 times. Selecting a newspaper on the third row reveals a cash award. The bad part is that the free spins cannot be retriggered, this is something that makes me feel disappointed.

Furthermore, solving the Case bonus feature is one of the best thematic bonus games on the second screen. This bonus game is played over two levels, the first of which is the Clue Bonus. There are a number of clues lying on a table and the player has to keep picking a clue till the telephone rings. As the player picks a clue a record is made in the old fashioned type writer font and the player wins a cash award. Each clue picked by the player is examined under a magnifying glass by a cop sitting at the table. If the clue has a fingerprint mark then the cop informs his senior, who awards the player the credits for all the clues on the table and asks the cop to take him to the second level. In the second level the player has to identify a suspect. If the fingerprint of the identified suspect matches with that on the clue the player wins the top cash award. Otherwise he gets a consolation award. I believe those players who are the detective fans will utterly like this genre of slot game very much.

Private Eye is a 243 ways video slot that I described on "someone" that had to go out of his way to pull my chains (tease me). I used this video slot on him because it describes his helpful yet dark nature. As long as I keep him in a good mood there won't be trouble.

This is one of the video slots I played on that helped me earn my winnings to $330.30 on Allslots after some serious wagers and persistent efforts. That withdrawal came very neatly! Almost every time for bets of less than $1.25 there will most likely be 5 of a kind combinations such as 5 handcuffs, 5 cameras or 5 telephones. These combinations pay moderately well and they appear very commonly! It is that after very long persistent bets of $1.50 and $2 that I finally gotten a very well earned 20 Free spins at 4x WITH a $30 prize win! My wins inside free spins tallied to at least $100+. Having 5 of those small symbols (Handcuffs/telephones/cameras) were paying so sseexxiilllyy on most of my free spins!! The bonus round however, never came for my $1.50 and $2 bets! Hopefully next time I'll be much luckier for these two bets on Private Eye!
Be very careful betting $1.50 and $2+ on Private Eye because although, I played on these bets when I had roughly about $212, triggering the free spins were excruciatingly very long to trigger!!! It's easier on lower bets for some reason. The bonus round for those bets never hit a bonus feature which I wanted to for one of these bets! I already know what's in the bonus under smaller bets ($1 or less), it's almost like Cashanova's barn bonus! I would just pick evidence items, if I'm lucky then the next round will prompt me to choose a mugshot.

The only thing I hate about Private Eye is it doesn't have that Extra win like Cashanova's free spins, per free spin gives a bonus win regardless of the conclusion! Now that had a lot of passion in winnings!
Private Eye game is powered by microgaming. What a cool game. There are some games that you have to play at night or in a dark room to get the most out of the music and graphics, and this is one of those games. It is a cool story of a private detective on the hunt for a suspect to solve a case. The drawings are very cool and the music is cooler. Reminds me of the old movies, with a private detective narrating his every thought.

This is a 243 lines game with a minimum bet of €0.25. There is wilds, scatters a bonus feature and a free spins feature too. Anything you want is there. Each of the drawings represents daily uses of the detective. Money, guns, crime scene, women its all there. And that just in tense's the game experience.

To get the bonus feature you have to get three bonus symbols appearing on the first three reels. In the bonus feature you have to search for a clue. You will have to pick objects on the detectives table until the phone rings. One of the objects awards win all with a clue to the crime. If you find the clue you will be taken into the second part of the bonus where you have to pick one out of five mugshots. If you pick the correct one you will be awarded with a cash prize. I play this game on €0.50 bet and on average i win around €15 to €20.

The free spins feature is awarded if 3 news paper boys appear on the last three reels. This is a pick bonus, so the amount of spins, multiplier or cash you get is based on your luck. You can get up to 20 free spins with 4x. I have got that few times and i dont think its that hard to get. Max i got on free spins is around €60.

To be honest i dont play this game to win alot of money. I actually dont expect it to pay big, but i do play it because its a lot of fun. If you are playing just to win alot of money then this game is not for you. But if you want to have fun and enjoy yourself then give it a try. For me personally its 8 out of 10. Hope you enjoyed my review and have a nice day:)
