The Heist follows the story of a professional bank robber, Neil Quayland, who is being tracked down by a detective, Albert Kowalski, all the while planning his biggest heist yet – a $9 million job.

Scatter symbol: The Scatter symbol is the the drill symbol and interestingly it doesn’t trigger any Free Spin features here. Instead it sees a payout in accordance to the number you spin, with three Scatters paying 150 coins, four paying 300 coins, and five paying 750 coins.
Wild symbol: The Wild symbol is the C4 symbol and when it lands on the centre of the middle reel, the entire reel explodes and turns Wild, with a 2x multiplier applied.
Bonus symbols: There are two bonus symbols to trigger their corresponding bonus features including the vault symbol, and the glass cutter symbol. You need three of each to trigger their corresponding features.

Heist in-game bonuses
There are two extra bonus features to BetSoft’s Heist, with extra bonuses available to activate within the Glass Cutter Feature.
Second Screen Bonus Round: If you spin at least three vault symbols you will trigger the Second Screen Bonus. Here, you will be prompted to choose your mode of entry to the vault and then follow Quayland around it as he stashes cash into a bag.
You will be alerted to when the detective has arrived and you need to decide when to escape before he catches Quayland, risking winning more or losing it all. The money Quayland escapes with is then credited to your account.
Glass Cutter Feature: When you spin at least three glass cutter symbols you will trigger the Glass Cutter Feature where you will be able to pick one of the symbols to win an instant prize, free spins (wins are doubled here), or a free bonus credit win.
Our thoughts on Heist pokies
Heist is the perfect theme for a pokie, provided the software developer executes the storyline well – and that’s exactly what BetSoft have done. The detailed video intro and the 3D graphics immerse the player into the story and the bonus features are quite exciting, unique, and generous.
The main bonus feature where we get to decide how to enter the vault – we chose explosives of course – and when to escape without being caught adds a thrill element to the bonus features, rather than just clicking to win. However, the click to win with the chance to win free spins, or instant credits is also just as exciting.
Overall, Heist is an incredibly fun pokie and if you’re into action-packed blockbusters, you’ll get your money’s worth here.
