It’s about time that iSoftBet gets some spotlight on themselves. Looking back at all the other slot games they have produced, we have realized that they have developed many games after famous TV series and movies. 24 isn’t an exception. For us players, this is actually great news. More often than not, the best games are based on themes that are famous. Sometimes, it’s just mesmerizing to see flawless gameplay work hand in hand with games with an exciting theme and storyline.
24 features a standard 5×3 reel configuration and paylines are set at a fixed number of 10. In our experience playing this game over a couple of hours, we think that 24 has been designed to payout more frequently than the average rate. This may sound really good on paper, but almost all of the wins in this game are so small that it gets unexciting after a while.
Wager options start from a mere 20p per spin and goes all the way up to a respectable £20 per spin. In this game, placing high wagers on spins are not a bad idea as the payouts are frequent enough for you to recover you money back.

This game sports four different features. On par with the industry standard, 24 sports the basics: Free Spins Symbols, Bonus Symbols, and the Wild Symbols. Note that the Free Spins Symbols will only appear on the third reel and will trigger up to 10 free spins. This is where the game and the storyline gets interesting.
During the free spins, you can expect gun fights to break out! A machine-gun will appear and start shooting at terrorists, and as a result, it will turn the whole reel into Wild. This Wild Reel feature with then complete all winning combinations and you are up for a big payday.
Another sub-feature that you can anticipate during the free spin is Random Wild. A hand gun will appear and shoot symbols at random. As a result, the respective symbols will turn into Wilds. The final free spin feature is known as the Block of Wilds. In this sub-feature, the bad guys will throw a bomb, and a block of 2×2 symbols on the reels will turn into Wild.
In this department, 24 has performed flawlessly. Navigation across all the options in this game has been designed thoughtfully. Bet options are very clear and can be changed by just a click or a tap depending on the device you are playing the game on. Till today, other game makers still prefer the slider design for the bet options in their games that isn’t as accurate and smooth.
As expected, both the audio visuals in this game are crystal clear. Similar to other high-end video games, 24 comes with various keyboard shortcuts and hotkeys which enables us to easily navigate between options. Though hotkeys are a simple concept, they sure do help elevate the gaming experience, especially if you plan to game for long periods of time.

Now, we arrive to the star attraction of this game. In all honesty, the bonus game in 24 has to be the most exciting we have played in a long long time. If we were to give an award to a game for the best feature, this would be it. No doubt! To trigger the bonus game in 24, you will need three or more bonus symbols anywhere on the reels.
Depending on the number of bonus symbols that you previously got on you reels, you will receive the exact same amount in minutes to diffuse the bomb! Each wire you cut will decrease the time you have but any multiplier that you win will give you an additional minute. How fun is that?
This bonus game is also one of the highest paying that we have ever encountered. Here, you can win up to 100 times your bet, and as if that wasn’t enough, for every wire you cut you can win multipliers of up to 10x that will catapult your winnings to a staggering amount.
As of late, game developers are becoming more creative by the day. New themes and features are innovated weekly, but rarely do we see a theme that works so well with the features that are featured in a particular slot game. The developers of 24 have truly mastered the art of fusion between theme and gameplay, and hopefully, all their future games will be as good if not better.
