Highstreet Heist slot REVIEW
Highstreet Heist ReviewThe thing that makes heist movies so appealing is probably the fact that both the singular goal and the high stakes are crystal clear more or less from the get-go, and it’s a joy watching the robbery being planned and carried out with all sorts of unpredictable complications along the way. You get a sense of the same in Highstreet Heist from Quickspin, where a crew in spooky clown masks are robbing a jewelry store in an affluent part of the city.
They need your help to ‘break the glass’ to gain entry, however. You’ll be doing a lot of that in the base game, as this unblocks reel positions, increases win ways and awards respins. Break it all in one round to trigger the Heist Bonus Round, where you’ll convert the mid-level robbers into the lucrative Diamond symbol. A multiplier can also come into play after the conversions are finished, and this is how you’re most likely to close in on the 21,160x potential (varies with RTP settings).

Highstreet Heist Slot Features
The 4 masked robbers are the medium symbols, and they pay 2.5 to 5 x your stake for 5 of a kind wins. The high value Diamond symbol pays 12.5x for the same, and the gold bar Wild steps in for all regular pay symbols to help complete wins. A piece of glass covers the 2 middle rows across all 5 reels, effectively blocking those positions and giving you 32 default win ways that can increase up to 1,024.
The glass on a reel is broken when you land a full stack of matching symbols, and this also gives you a Respin. The process repeats if you land another full stack of matching symbols on a glass-blocked reel, and the Heist Bonus Round triggers when you manage to remove the glass across all 5 reels in the same respin sequence (or from a lucky single spin).
The Heist Bonus Round comes with 10 free spins, and the 4-positions Heist Meter gets 1 position filled for each full-reel stack of matching symbols you land. A full meter awards +2 extra spins, and this also converts the lowest value robber into the top-tier Diamond symbol. If you manage to convert all 4 robbers, a full meter increases the win multiplier by +1 and gives you +2 extra spins. Finally, non-UK players, and anyone eligible, can take advantage of the Bonus Buy feature. This will set you back 111x your stake, and it gives you a spin where all reels land full stacks of matching symbols that break all the glass. A bonus buy “discount” is thus possible, if the initial full-stack spin actually delivers a win.
The 200 Spins Highstreet Heist Slot Experience
We tried our best to break all the glass organically in the base game for a good while, but in the end we decided to purchase the bonus round instead. This gave us the glass-breaking spin we were looking for, and the feature starts around 1:22 into the 4-minute highlights video. You can see for yourself how we fared by hitting the play button below.
You can count on Quickspin to have the willingness to try new ideas and concepts, and the base game glass-breaking mechanic is Highstreet Heist’s most innovative element. It’s kind of cool to see the glass splinter, and satisfying when you finally manage to get rid of it all. However, it also blocks prime ‘reel estate’, making regular base game wins suffer. The good news is that you get plenty of respins with broken glass - and thus extra positions and win ways - and these are not paid respins either.
Some will probably find the base game experience frustrating however, with all the near and far misses you get, but the low/medium volatility keeps you afloat without too much trouble. Things take a highly volatile turn when you finally hit the bonus round though, which is all about converting symbols and increasing the global win multiplier. A solid 21,160x payout was achieved in 100 million simulated spins, at least for the 96.29 % RTP version, but the potential is a bit lower for the 2 lower RTP settings.
