Detective Frank Drebin is back! He and his Police Squad will again try to discover who is trying to assassinate Queen Elizabeth II, and the main suspect is once again his old enemy Vincent Ludwig, a successful businessman.
No, this is not yet another sequel of the famous Naked Gun film series, but the latest Blueprint product that features 5 reels, 3 rows and offers 20 fixed paylines. The reels are set in the very police department where Leslie Nielsen used to solve numerous cases.
His sweetheart, Jane Spencer, is there to help him, but he will need help of all available gamers out there. Don’t worry, if you decide to join his squad, you will be generously rewarded for your trouble, due to four types of Free Spins features, Roaming Wilds feature, and the life-changing Jackpot King feature.

How To Play It
You don’t have to be an experienced detective to figure out the rules of the 2017 release. Even a mere rookie will be able to figure everything out in a matter of seconds, it’s that easy! The Naked Gun is a five-reel pokie with 20 fixed paylines, which pay left to right, starting from the far left reel. Punters will start winning once they manage to land at least three matching symbols on an active payline.
Before that, players will have to set the desired bet, which goes from $0.20 to $200. Since you are required to place 20 coins per spin, it is easy to determine the coin value as well ($0.01-$10). If you get tired of hitting the Spin button, you can always activate Autoplay and set up to 100 automatic spins.
When it comes to symbols on the reels, spinners will notice lots of familiar faces. The Logo of the movie, Detective Frank Drebin and his sweetheart Jane Spencer, Captain Ed Hocken, and Vincent Ludwig serve as high-value symbols, while J-A playing cards represent the low-paying ones. The famous Police Siren acts as a Wild that substitutes for all symbols except Scatter, which is actually the Police Badge that triggers the Free Spins feature.
First on the list of many additional features is the Roaming Wild feature, triggered when three or more Wilds land on the reels. Players will win free re-spins with roaming Wilds that move around the reels. The feature is over when there are no more Wilds on the reels.
Three or more Police Badge Scatters trigger the Free Spins feature. Players can benefit from four different types of free spins. In Home Run Free Spins, punters will get 10 freebies with roaming Wilds. That means that all Wilds that land on the reels will move around the reels until the feature is over.
With Stake Out Free Spins gamers also get 10 free spins, but this time with multiplying roaming Wilds. Again, all Wilds that appear will roam around until the feature is over, but if two of them land on the same position, they will award a win multiplier ranging from 2x to 5x.
There is also the On the Edge Free Spins feature, where you get 10 freebies and expanding roaming Wilds, which move around until the feature is over. They become expanding once two of them land on the same position. When that happens, the Wild will cover the entire reel.
The Crime Scene Free Spins get you 10 free spins, and multiplying expanding Wilds. As the Wilds roam around throughout the feature, it may occur that two of them land on the same cell. This is when the Wild will cover the entire reel and award a win multiplier, going from 2x to 5x.
Last but not the least is the Jackpot King feature, where you can win a life-changing progressive jackpot. Once you get five Jackpot King Crowns, you will start the feature. While you spin the reels, try to collect as many crowns as you can, because the more you get, the bigger the multiplier is. If you get 15, you will spin the Wheel King and hope for the progressive jackpot.
Due to the Jackpot King feature, all detectives that join the police squad can go home with insane wins, but don’t expect to win the progressive jackpot anytime soon. Gamers can really win a lot in one of the Free Spins features. Our personal favourite is the Crime Scene Free Spins, which offers multiplying expanding Wilds and offer lots of opportunities for hefty payouts.
Frank Drebin and Jane Spencer will get you 200 coins fro five of a kind, the Logo offers 400 coins for the same combination, while if you land five Wilds, you will get 500 coins.
The pokie is definitely not as funny as the original movie, but it is packed with exciting features, so we expect plenty of action junkies in this weird police squad. Prepare to spend hours playing this great game, but also prepare cash, because it can do serious damage to your balance, especially if you don’t manage to trigger the Free Spins feature for a while.
In our humble opinion, the 2017 release is certainly worth both the time and the money, because it can prove to be quite generous. We are positive you will enjoy the adventures of the famous police squad.
