60 Second Heist slot REVIEW
60 Second Heist ReviewThis is not the first time 4ThePlayer messes around with time, as you basically got base game wins rewinded and repeated during the bonus round in the time-traveling effort, 10x Rewind. 60 Second Heist is more focused on speed than time travel though, and it comes with ‘Miami Vice’ and/or ‘GTA Vice City’ inspired visuals. The soundtrack is a bit annoying to be honest, and we wish it could be turned off independent of the game sounds.
‘Gone in 60 Seconds’ with Nicolas Cage also comes to mind, but this is no branded effort. The base game grind is broken up on a regular basis by the Turbo Lock Respins feature, and it can lead to solid payouts if you come close to filling the screen with matching symbols. The big highlight is the 60-second countdown Win Time Bonus Round, where special scatters buy you extra time as well as boosting the multiplier and spin speed.

60 Second Heist Slot Features
The premium symbols consist of 2 characters as the top-tier symbols (they become masked robbers in the bonus round), as well as their loot, and these symbols pay 2 to 4 x your stake for 5 of a kind wins. The cocktail lady Wild is an undercover FBI agent apparently, as that is what she turns into in the bonus round. Both wild versions step in for regular pay symbols to help complete winning combinations.
The Turbo Lock Respins feature triggers randomly after a base game win, and this locks all winning symbols in place. The remaining positions then respin, and all new winning symbols that land also become sticky. The feature goes on for 5 seconds, and then the final payout is calculated.
The Win Time Bonus Round triggers when you land 3 scatters on reels 1, 3 and 5, and you start with exactly 60 seconds of free spins time instead of a specific amount. You will always get the winnings from your final spin after the countdown has finished though. A light moves around the frame of the grid throughout the feature, and it increases the global win multiplier by +1 per lap it completes.
You can land a Boost Scatter during the bonus round, and it increases the speed of the automatic reel spins each time it lands. In addition, it increases the win count time, as well as the speed of the multiplier upgrading light doing laps around the grid frame. The speed boost of the latter only lasts for a brief moment though, and Extra Time Scatters can also land to add crucial extra seconds to the countdown clock.
A Bonus Bet feature may be included in certain jurisdictions, and it allows you to adjust a slider that increases both your stake and your bonus round chances.
The 200 Spins 60 Second Heist Slot Experience
You get to see a larger character symbol win in the base game, before we trigger the bonus round close to the 2-minute mark. The feature plays out for the remainder of the 4:31-minute highlights video, and you can see how much we got away with in 60 seconds by hitting the play button below.
For a release so focused on speed and time, we found the base game pace to be a bit slow and awkward. We get that this is calibrated with the Win Time Free Spins round in mind, but still, more thought could have gone into it. The Turbo Lock Respins feature can certainly lead to solid base game payouts though, not least due to the 1,024 win ways. You’ll get top-up wins from it most of the time, of course, but 4,096x your stake is possible on a very lucky day.
Closing in on the solid 60,000x potential will thus only happen in the 60-seconds bonus round. With this battle-against-the-clock setup you would want to feel that the game is “on your side”, so to speak, and lengthy Extra Time animations and win calculations doesn’t help in that regard. Being at the mercy of the 2 special scatters is okay, but we do feel that the overall game pace should have been higher to match the ‘fast and the furious’ image.
