In today’s review, we are learning all about ‘Reel Banks’, set to release on December 5th across all sites!
What is hidden behind these bank safes? This slot uses a familiar bank/riches theme. The game background looks to be set inside a banking building, with a massive bank vault on the right side. The left side has a trolley, with containers filled with riches such as gold bars and stacks of bank notes. The building interior is well detailed, with metal railings above for the second floor and sleek floors and walls. The reel border is steel, with engravings and gold accents on both the top corners. Low paying symbols are the typical card suits, with vibrant colours used. Premium symbols are expensive items such as golden bars, stacks of cash and purses filled with golden coins. Animations that occur when you spin are well detailed, with money being added to above each reel. Each symbol has interesting effects which display when part of a win. There is nothing that really stands out visually with this game, except the colours used for the symbols artwork.

Including vibrant colours used within the symbols art work, making the reel set really pop and making the game background look rather dull. Lets move onto the Features and Mechanics;
There is a lot of different mechanics, all making this game perfect for high volatility players. Firstly there are money symbols which appear on 4 different reels, with values between 1x to 500x.
