A Night in Paris

After being released by Betsoft in 2011, A Night in Paris
became popular due to its 3D graphics and Parisian angle.

Of course, 2011 was quite a while ago as far as slots
technology goes. So the question is if these 3D graphics can
still stack up to games that are being released today.

We’ll cover this question and give you an idea if A Night in
Paris is still worth playing these days. We’ll also discuss this
5 reel slot’s details, bonus rounds, and offer a comparison to
Betsoft’s After Night Falls.

Overview of the Game

This game opens with an introduction that takes you through
the streets of Paris during the daytime while a Frenchman
provides the voiceover. Day turns to night, and you get your
first glimpse of Jacques the thief, security guard Jerome
LaBaste, and his dog Pierre.

The story revolves around Jerome and Pierre trying to catch
Jacques, who’s been stealing high priced artwork from the
museum.

Given the story, it’s little surprise that the game’s
backdrop is Paris at nighttime, with the Eifel Tower and several
buildings decorating the landscape. Jerome and Pierre stand off
to the side and cheer for you during winning payouts.

We definitely like the music that plays since it’s an upbeat
tune that perfectly reflects both Paris and trying to catch the
criminal.

Symbols that you’ll see in this game include Jerome, Jacques,
Pierre, two lovers, doves, the Eifel Tower, various artwork, and
Jerome’s badge.

Many of these symbols perform animations when they appear in
winning pay lines. For example, Pierre growls and shows his
teeth, the doves fly over the streets of Paris, the Eifel Tower
is shown in a moving overview, Jacques sneaks around artwork,
and Jerome pulls down his sunglasses and waves his finger back
and forth.

Jerome is the highest paying symbol, giving you 500 coins if
he appears five times in a winning pay line.

A Night in Paris doesn’t feature any wild or regular scatter
symbols, which seems weird for a fairly advanced 3D slot like
this one.

As for betting options, you can change pay lines from 1 to
30, coin size from $0.01 to $1.00, and play 1 to 5 coins on each
pay line. This makes for a minimum bet of $0.02 per spin and a
max wager of $150.00.

You can also use auto spin to keep the reels going for 5 to
100 spins with your selected betting options. If you want to
play more than one pay line at a time, make sure that you select
this option because the auto spin default is just one pay line.

A Night in Paris Bonuses

This game offers three different bonuses, including a special
scatter option, Chase Free Spins, and Caught in the Museum.
Below you can see a detailed look at each bonus round.

Special Scatter

While A Night in Paris doesn’t offer a regular scatter, you
can multiply your winning payouts by getting one of two exact
combinations:

  • Jacques, the badge and Jerome consecutively on reels 1, 2,
    and 3
  • Jerome, the badge, and Jacques consecutively on reels 1, 2,
    and 3

When you land either of these combos in order, you’ll see a
sign that tells you to alert security guard Jerome to the thief.
Once you do this, Jerome will turn around and jump closer to the
reels, nabbing Jacques in the process.

Although the payout screen says that this feature multiplies
your bet, we only saw a total credit win of 150 coins flash on
the screen. Since we were betting 30 total coins per spin, we
assume that we earned a 5x multiplier by catching the thief the
first time, and a 10x multiplier of 300 coins the second time.

Chase Free Spins

The Chase Free Spins are triggered whenever you get 3 or more
badges on the reels.

Before your free spins start, Jacques sneaks out onto the
screen while trying to avoid being caught. However, Jerome and
Pierre see the thief, and then start chasing him back and forth
as your free spins are going.

At the end, you hear fighting off the screen, which is
followed by Jerome carrying the thief across the screen and
tossing him afterward. Your total win is then awarded and you go
back to playing the main game.

As you can see, these are just basic free spins. But in
contrast to most games, we like how A Night in Paris has dressed
them up with a chase scene going on the entire time.

Caught in the Museum

When you land 3 or more paintings anywhere on the reels,
you’re taken to the hall of a museum. This scene shows Jacques
standing in front of a statue, painting and vase while trying to
figure out which of the 3 items to steal.

We selected the statue and as Jacques crept closer to the
object, Jerome came around the corner, chased the thief down and
pushed him to the floor. It seemed like this was the wrong
selection, but we still earned 600 credits.

Overall, this is probably the best bonus round because it
takes you to a second screen, and the scene where Jerome catches
Jacques is entertaining.

Comparison to After Night Falls

In 2013, Betsoft released a game that’s very similar to A
Night in Paris called After Night Falls. The latter is also set
in Paris and sees Inspector Rousseau which is based on Pink
Panther’s Inspector Clouseau, trying to catch a serial cat
burglar.

While the setting and story are similar, After Night Falls
has better graphics and animations than A Night in Paris. Of
course, we can chalk this up to it being developed two years
later, but it’s still worth mentioning.

After Night Falls also adds more detail to its bonus rounds,
especially one where you gather clues in the apartment of an old
lady who’s been robbed.

A Night in Paris does a better job of working the Parisian
angle and making you feel as if you’re in the City of Love.
After Night Falls, in contrast, barely alludes to the fact that
the game takes place in Paris.

However, we wouldn’t quite say that A Night in Paris’ setting
makes it the better slot. After Night Falls has superior
graphics and more engaging bonus rounds, so we give it the edge
in most respects.

Conclusion

When compared to the newer 3D slots that Betsoft is
developing, A Night in Paris might get lost in the shuffle.
After all, its graphics don’t look as impressive as they did
several years ago, which is painfully apparent as you watch the
introduction video.

However, if we’re just comparing A Night in Paris to the rest
of the slots industry, it’s still a pretty good game. We really
like how apparent the backstory and theme are, making this feel
like a mini movie as you play.

The three bonus features are also more than adequate since
you have a special multiplier, second screen game and free
spins. As mentioned before, the free spins really stand out
since you get to see a chase scene unfold while you’re playing.

Summary

In summary, if you want the most detailed graphics and
animations, try some of Betsoft’s newer slots. But if you’re
just looking for a good slots game with above average graphics
and a fun story line, then you should be more than happy with A
Night in Paris.
