In a theme that we can't remember having seen before, Capecod Gaming has the Arsenio Lupin (or Aresene Lupin, depending on your language and location) slot based on a character who is supposed to be a sort of gentleman thief. This game is all about a wealth-based concept, which has been done several times before, but what sets this particular title apart is that it's based on a thief who is trying to steal it all from the inside. This game has above-average graphics with the two key characters flanking the sides of the reels at all times.

Game Layout

Three rows of symbols are spread across five reels of action and 15 paylines in this game. It's enough paylines to give you plenty of ways to win without being so many that it's hard to remember exactly what they are, if you're into that sort of thing. Coins start at $0.01 for a minimum wager of just $0.15. You can also play with coins that are worth as much as $1 for a $15 maximum, which gives a wide enough betting range for most, but high stakes players may want to find something with larger available bet sizes. You can lay with fewer than 15 paylines if you're really determined to, but we suggest to keep it at 15 to maximize your RTP percentage.

Scratch Bonus Round

One feature in this game is about scratch cards, of all things. Get five of this symbol anywhere on the reels for a play at the scratch bonus feature. This is essentially a lotto-based mini game with chances to win extra prizes, and we're not entirely sure how it fits into the high class theme of the game since we don't really think wealthy people sit around playing scratch-offs in their mansions all the time. It's an odd choice, and while it's definitely a different style of feature than we've seen used much in the industry as a whole, we can't say that it fits this particular game very well.

Poster Bonus Feature

The poster symbol is another scattered bonus symbol. Five of it on the reels bring you to the poster bonus feature. This is also another mini-game that basically amounts to chances to win random prizes as you stop posters from spinning on different rows in an effort to match them up. the posters have different pictures and concepts on them that seem to show some kind of burglary in progress, but again, there's no much context given, so it's hard to tell what's really going on. We think Capecod Gaming could have used this as an opportunity to tell a story of some sort in this game, but again, it just seems out of place and lacks meaning.

Safes Bonus Feature

If you get five total scatters between the scratch card symbol and the poster symbol, then you get a play at a third bonus feature. Naturally, and we say this completely sarcastically, the logical combination of a poster and a scratch-off ticket is a chance to crack open some safes. You get five attempts to open different safes. If it holds a ring or a necklace, you get a payout. If not, then you get a chance at another safe. This feature fits the idea of a gentleman thief, which is what the slot is supposed to be based on since that's who Arsenio Lupin is supposed to be, but using scratch-off tickets and posters as scatters to activate the feature doesn't make much sense.

Wilds and High-end Payouts

There are two wilds. One is a wild bracelet, and the other is a joker car symbol. They both operate as regular wilds that do not substitute for scattered bonus symbols. The highest-paying regular symbol is the titular character of Arsenio Lupin, and he gives you 1,000x for five of a kind. The woman in red gives you 500x for five, and you can earn 250x for five of the cop, who is presumably trying to catch Lupin.

Our Thoughts

When we first looked at this game, we thought it had some potential to give players a pretty cool experience because the theme was a bit different. However, as we dove deeper into the bonus features of the Arsenio Lupin slot and how little sense any of it made, we changed our mind. We have no idea what Capecod Gaming was thinking other than they must not put much emphasis on things making some degree of logical sense in a video slot. Along these lines, while we like the graphics and the general theme, we can't get behind two of the three bonus features because they don't fit the concept of the game at all.
