A firm favourite of ours in it’s online format, The Amsterdam Masterplan kept enough of it’s original features to keep us happy and spinning away.
We were a little worried when we started reviewing The Amsterdam Masterplan. First of all, we’ve always enjoyed this online slot and were worried how they were going to turn this incredibly graphical 3D video slot into a much simpler mobile format. Secondly, we recently reviewed Spartania, the first of Sheriff Gaming’s mobile slots and frankly… we were a little disappointed.
So imagine our great and wonderful surprise to find that we actually enjoyed this mobile slot! Sure, it doesn’t have the great video intro of the original, and the sounds during the standard game could have been a little more exciting, but when the bonus features hit, it brings back all the glory of the original heist. From the expanding wild in the middle column dropping one of our thieves on a wire, bringing the thrill of Mission Impossible on our tablet, or the random ‘extra cash bonus’ bringing all the glory of hitting a jackpot to the small screen, we thoroughly enjoyed it.
Other than the great theme (three guys, hitting the biggest casino in Amsterdam for the heist of their lives), this little slot has a great Free Spins feature, which might be hard to hit but can lead to some decent prizes. Granted the free spins numbers are small (5, 10 or 15 depending if you get 3, 4 or 5 scatters respectively) but they can be re-triggered and the symbols can be anywhere on the reels, not just on an active payline. Plus the lead up and graphics when it hits brings all the excitement of the heist straight to your small screen.
This game is let down by a relatively low return to player rate of 94.75%. It requires a little patience to win big, but with a jackpot of 40,000 coins available, winning big is a possibility. And as everyone knows anyway, half the thrill is in the execution of the heist, as much as the payload at the end.

Expanding Wild: The most frequently hit feature, this little baby will give you a small thrill everytime it hits. Whenever the 'casino entry ticket' wild appears on the middle reel, it will expand over the whole section, with a little animation of the tech guy dropping from the cealing. Entertaining and with good wins.
Free Spins: The bank vault is both your aim and your scatter symbol. Get 3 or more to get 5, 10 or 15 free spins. They do not need to be on an active payline and, if you hit 3 or more bank vaults during your free spins, they are re-triggered. The graphics are fantastic, with a loud 'This is it Guys' voice-over from the clever guy making you feel like you've hit the jackpot before you've even hit your first free spins. Hard to hit feature, but fun whilst it lasts.
Extra Cash Bonus: Want some extra cash? Who doesn't? Get the tech guy, the clever guy and the inside guy appear in this exact order on reels 2, 3 and 4 and you will receive extra cash that the guys will throw at you. The sounds are great, exciting and you'll be watching those number's rise with excitement.
Wheel Of Fortune: When the SPIN symbol is in the center position on the fifth reel, you may spin the Wheel Of Fortune once. The prize that you win on the Wheel Of Fortune will be multiplied by the number of active win lines and by the active line bet.
Double Up Feature: A simple 'red' or 'black' card game, its a nice feature when you fancy an extra gamble.
With a low RTP rate, this game isn't for every player. You'll need a little patience to hit some of the bigger bonus features. But with exciting graphics, a wide variety of features and a great theme, we are very happy that The Amsterdam Masterplan has finally made it to mobile and tablets.
Get ready for the heist of your lifetime!... Or the heist of an afternoon... which is more likely. Still an afternoon well spent in our books.
