Are you one of the Good Guys or the Bad Guys? Well, you have no choice in this game as in the Action Bank slot you are about to become a bank heist master and safe cracker and hopefully make off with the goods! Grab your fatigues and let’s get to it.
Apart from the thrill of doing over the bank, this title has other attractions. How about 30 free spins and gems worth 500x your wager? Let’s chuck another sausage on the barbie and check it out.
This slice of thrills is one of Barcrest’s, part of the behemoth game giant Scientific Games- those people behind games like the 88 Fortunes slot and Rainbow Riches. You must have heard of Rainbow Riches, the slot with the wee Irish fella in it? Of course you have- well this game is made by them.
Look and Feel
The Action Bank slot is set in a metal underground bunker: I am going to take a wild guess and say that this must be the bank vault. This game’s overall vibe is industrial and dark (well, we are up to no good, after all).
It’s a criminal escapade that comes with a retro feel which is helped along with paired-down electronic flourishes and bleeps. Barcrest are good at retro- give the 7s to Burn slot machine a whirl if you don’t believe me.
Make a start on hitting the big time by spinning the reels over 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 pay-lines.
This game’s icons are simple and remind me of a mega-sized game of noughts and crosses.
First of all, a classic number 7 is the highest icon: 5 of these are worth a whopping 500x your wager. A retro BAR icon is the next highest icon on the reels with 5 of these rewarding you with a 100x your stake. These are all the kinds of traditional symbols that you’ll find on other games like the Mighty Hot Wilds slot. Well, why change a winning formula?
And you can’t miss the series of white noughts and red crosses on the reels. The noughts have no value but they do help trigger the bonus if you play your reels right.
There’s also a wicked looking smiling joker who is just the ticket for the Wild in a game that’s all about being on the wrong side of the law. The Bonus Scatter is a golden vault dial.
Land 5 Bonus Scatters to activate the free spins game. Before you get started, you will have to choose between a series of icons to reveal the number of free spins you are given. Up for grabs are between 5 and a very tasty 30 free games.
If having 30 free spins doesn’t float your boat, there’s also the chance to gamble your free spins before you start. If you land a further 5 Scatters you’ll be up for even more fresh free spins.
I was also nicely surprised to discover that there’s a trio of special double icons at play in this mode too: you can’t miss the enhanced lucky 7, a double nought and a BAR icon that lands on the first reel that should help you to build more combos.
Big Bank Bonus
At random, you can also trigger the Big Bank Bonus where you’ll get into a picking game. Choose between a trio of sparkling gems that award multipliers as hefty as 500x your stake.
Yes, this game is pretty simple, but what’s wrong with that? 3 shiny gems that give you a multiplier of up to 500x your wager ain’t half bad in my book. And don’t forget those 30 free spins that can be re-triggered plus the Big Bank Bonus- it all sound great, unless you’re the cops!
Wombat Score: 3.8 out of 5
A fantasy heist with bells on.
