With The Big Hit slot you get a 5×4 reel game with 40 paylines that promises you a heist big enough to make everyone rich. But can you get away with the cash or will it keep hiding on the five reels?
The Big Hit by SlotMill is a high variance video slot with a huge top win of 20,000x your bet and a high RTP of 96.21%. It manages the high RTP by giving you three potential bonus free spins, each with progressively bigger multipliers and wilds.
It helps that the slot theme is well designed – set to the heat of Miami, you are being chased by the cops (the bonus symbols) all for trying to do one last heist with your crew.
The team members are the getaway driver, the enforcer, the safecracker, the tech-savvy backup, and the slick conman. Add Ace to J, and that’s 9 paytable symbols that can pay out at any point.
During The Big Hit slot base game, there’s only one feature that shows up with any regularity; crowd control.
Here, bullets will fly at the screen, adding 3 to 12 wild symbols onto the screen. Wild symbols can only land on reels 2, 3 and 4, but enough of them help bulk up some nice wins.
However, you’ll need the multipliers in the free spin bonus games to get ahead, much like in the Cash Truck slot.
The feature you’ll get more often than not is the Heist Respins with 2 scatters on reels 1 and 5. The respins can continue indefinitely until the big hit symbol lands.
Meanwhile, each wild symbol that lands on the screen create a sticky frame that also increases the multiplier on the frame. When the big hit slot symbol hits, those wilds returns, with the glorious multipliers attached.
The second Bonus, the Getaway bonus, is triggered by three bonus symbols on reels 2, 3, and 4. Here you get all the same features as in Heist, but you have a Limit meter (if you hit it, the bonus game ends) and special power-ups that can make the free spins feel like they are going to last forever.
But that’s not even the bonus that will get you the top win of this The Big Hit online slot. Instead, it’s the APB bonus triggered by 5 scatters that gets you the major wins.
Again, you get all the same features as in Heist and Getaway bonus combined, only this time the total win multiplier increases by 1x on each spin, and the limit meter is set at 70x your bet.
In other words, by spin 20 your may have a 20x multiplier and you are guaranteed a minimum of 70x your bet max win, probably a lot more.
With all these features, how come we only gave The Big Hit slot review 3 stars. Because in order to get anywhere near the top win you need to get 5 scatters on screen.
Guess how often that happens?
This is a stupidly high variance slot. And for some, that’s all they need to know, and the betting range of 0.10 to 30 a spin, to play.
As long as you set a more realistic goal (ie. move on if you win over 100x/200x/500x your bet), you’ll enjoy this one of a kind heist. It probably won’t be your last heist, but that’s why you’ve got video slots like the Wild Chase Tokyo Go slot or Agent Destiny slot to try right after.
Still, a fun way to pass an afternoon, all with the hope of catching those 5 scatters jackpot.

Boost: Fast Track gains direct access to the game's features. You'll play super fast, without the reels spinning, the game telling you what you won after X amount of spins.
Buy Bonus: For an X amount of cash, you can buy entry into any of the special bonus features.
The Big Hit slot surprised us. We expected nothing, and instead got a fun Heist slot with three possible bonus features.
Getting anything more than the Heist Respin is difficult, so you just have to face the fact that the high volatility makes this game crazy and unpredictable.
Once you accept that and don't get too tempted to buy the bonus, you'll want to keep spinning to see if the diamonds on the reel will pay out 20,000x your bet.
A great companion piece with the likes of the Great Stick Up slot or the High Street Heist game.
A fun surprise at any of the best sites for slots.
