Empty The Bank Slot Review – Pragmatic Play
It has been nearly 2 weeks since my last Pragmatic Play slot review, the last was for the game titled ‘5 Lions Megaways‘. Which has a max win capped at 5,000x and a Free Spins feature with multipliers up to 40x on offer! Today we are learning all about ‘Empty The Bank’, which is set to release on July 1st across all sites.
This slot has a game theme based around a bank robber, stealing as many valuables as possible in the desirable vaults. The background art work is set in a city with a night sky and tall buildings. Premium symbols are represented by valuables such as gold bars, bags of gems and crowns. The visual aspects are well made but not really unique.
Empty The Bank has a setup of 5 reels by 4 rows, this includes 20 set pay lines. This slot is high variance with a set RTP of 96.48% and a max win capped at 10,000x. You can bet from £0.20 – £100.
Empty The Bank Pay Table & Symbols
There are 11 symbols in total, this includes 4 low-paying symbols. These are represented by J, Q, K, and A. There are also 5 premium symbols, these are represented by golden coins, banknotes, gold bars, bags of gems, and a crown. In addition to these regular symbols is a wild and bonus symbol. The highest paying symbol is the crown premium symbol, which pays 20x for 5 across a pay line. Wilds substitute for all symbols except bonus scatters and appear on all reels. The bonus scatter appears on reels 1, 3, and 5 during base game spins.
Empty The Bank Features
Landing 3 or more bonus scatters during a base game spin will trigger the ‘Empty The Bank Respin Feature‘. When this feature begins reels are replaced with a grid starting from 4×5 positions up to 7×7 depending on what hits during the round. During spins, only special symbols will spin and can stop on any open positions on the reel set. When the round starts the 4×5 grid with 3 money symbols with random value will be placed in the positions the scatters hit to trigger initially. You start with 3 Respins, all special symbols that hit after each respin remain until the end of the round unless they are removed by other special symbols. When any special symbol hits the number of respins will reset to 3. This feature ends when all respins have been used.
There are 9 different special symbols, these are;
Money Symbol – On every respin the Money Symbol will take a random value between 1x – 10x.
Walkie Talkie – Whenever this symbol hits it will take a random value of +1x or +2x and adds that valye to all Money Symbols currently on the grid and subsequent respins until the end of the feature.
Computer – When this symbol hits it will multiply the values of all Money Symbols on the reel set by 2x.
Burglar – When this symbol hits it will collect the value of all Money Symbols and other Burgular Symbols currently on the reel set. This will allow new symbols in those spots.
Alarm – When this symbol hits the number of possible respins is increased to 4 instead of 3 until the end of the round and awards 1x.
Drill – When this symbol hits, it will open closed spaces on respin reel 1 and awards 1x.
Hammer – When this symbol hits, it will open closed spaces on respin reel 7 and awards 1x.
Ladder – When this symbol hits for the first time it opens closed spaces on respin row 6. The second time it hits spaces on respin row 7 will open and awards 1x.
Safe Door – When you land 3 of this symbol you will win 10,000x instantly.
There is an Ante Bet option available. Bet Multiplier 25x = The chance to land the bonus feature naturally is higher as more bonus symbols are present on the reel set. Bet Multiplier 20x = Normal Play. There is also a bonus buy option if available in your country, costing 80x your chosen stake.
Overall, I think this slot is an interesting release by the studio and filled with features/mechanics. There is a max win capped at 10,000x and a Respin feature with 9 special symbols on offer. Be sure to try out the game for yourself and check out our exclusive casino offers!
