Naked Gun Slot Review
From the files of Police Squad comes another adventure for Lieutenant Frank Drebin in the shape of The Naked Gun slot. Taking inspiration from the first movie of the series, this slot features images of Drebin (Leslie Nielsen), Jane (Priscilla Presley), Vincent Ludwig (Ricardo Montalbán) and Captain Ed Hocken (Alan North).
Naked Gun slots is a 5 reel, 20 payline slot from Blueprint Gaming. Wagering is set via the button on the left of the game and you can choose to spin from 20p to £200. An Autoplay button is available - down at the bottom right of the screen. You can opt to set the number of plays as well as loss limits.
The slot features a Detective bonus round which results in free spins. There are four potential bonus rounds and these include Home Run free spins with roaming wilds, Stake Out free spins with multiplying roaming wilds, On The Edge with expanding roaming wilds and Crime Scene free spins with more multiplying roaming wilds. When the bonus is activated you're given a choice of accepting an offer or gambling for a better one!
When three or more wilds appear on screen then a roaming wild feature is activated. This results in respins and these will continue until no more wilds land in view. Naked Gun slots also is part of the Jackpot King progressive slot group and this can activate at any time with any wager.
Police Squad Theme Tune
Naked Gun slots is a lot of fun and is graphically pleasing for a Movie Slot. The game play is smooth and the features available are excellent. However the game loses points due to the sound track. It sounds like the familiar Police Squad theme but it isn't and it rapidly becomes annoying. There's also no sign of OJ Simpson - although his off screen digressions may well explain his exclusion.
The game does contain a few soundbites from the original movie, but it's calling out for a couple of clips, just to immerse us firmly in the world of Drebin. Overall we like the game and had fun playing it, but the soundtrack gives it more a Naked Gun 33 and 1/3 quality rather than the brilliance of the first movie.
