Empty the Bank Review
The base game of Empty the Bank slot features five reels, four rows and twenty fixed paylines. Form winning combinations by landing three, four or five matching symbols on a payline, starting with the leftmost reel. You can bet between €0.20 and €100 per spin. Adjust the bet using the + and - buttons next to the spin button. You can configure the paytable to display payouts in both coin and cash values.
The RTP for Empty the Bank is 96.48 percent, which is slightly higher than the industry average. As with many slots from Pragmatic Play, this is a high variance slot. On a scale of 1 to 5, we would rate the volatility as 5. The maximum payout is 10,000 times your total bet in this game.
Theme and Design Elements
The Empty the Bank slot, with its murder mystery theme, features a cityscape at night as the backdrop for the reels. Alongside the cartoon visuals, you'll hear a cheeky Cockney-style commentary and cartoon soundtrack as you spin. When you get to the re-spin feature, this becomes more of a jazz funk backing track. Overall the game is quite well done.
You will find A to J royals, gold coins, banknotes, gold bars and a bag of gems on the reels. The most lucrative symbol is the gold crown, which pays 20 times your total bet when five of them appear on a payline.
The burglar is the untamed element of the game. He can appear on all five reels and substitute for all symbols except the bonus symbol (the safe).
Empty the Bank Bonus Features
Empty the Bank has another big bonus feature in addition to the three bonus features. However, this is a streak respin-like bonus that has a lot of potential. You can win up to 10,000 times your stake.
To activate the Empty the Bank Respin feature, land the bonus symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 during the same spin. They then enter a bank vault, which consists of a 7-square grid. Initially, only the middle 54 positions are available to unlock.
Three money symbols are inserted into the positions occupied by the triggering bonus symbols. You then play three respins. If any of the following special symbols appear, they award a cash prize or multiplier and remain for the rest of the round. In addition, the respins are reset to three. The symbols all award the following:
- Safe Door: This game pays 1x the bet. If you land three Safe Door symbols during the respins, you win the jackpot prize of 10,000x your total bet.
- Money symbol: This bag of bills contains bills with a face value between 1 and 10 times the bet.
- Walkie Talkie: This feature multiplies the value of all Money Symbols on the reels by one or two times the bet on each subsequent respin.
- Computer: This feature awards a prize equal to the bet multiplied by one. In addition, it doubles the value of the Money Symbols displayed.
- Burglar: This symbol accumulates the monetary values associated with all Money Symbols displayed. Additionally, it creates new positions for new symbols to land on.
- Alarm: This symbol also grants a 1x bet. Perhaps more importantly, it increases the number of respins available from three to four until the feature ends.
- Drill: this awards a 1x bet multiplier and also unlocks a blocked reel 1 position.
- Hammer: this also awards a prize equal to the bet. Additionally, the hammer unlocks and blocks positions on reel 7.
- Ladder: The first time this symbol appears, it unlocks a blocked position on reel 6. If it appears a second time on reel 7, a locked position is unlocked. In addition, each ladder pays 1x bet.
When all respins are used up, the cash values are added together to determine your final payout. Finally, and only in certain territories (but not in the UK), you have the option to buy the feature directly for an 80x multiplier of your total bet. This is known as the 'buy' feature.
Ante Bet Feature
You can increase your bet from twenty to twenty-five coins per spin and activate the feature Ante Bet. For example, a standard bet of €1 per spin becomes a bet of €1.25. In turn, your chances of activating the Respin feature are increased by double.
Empty the Bank is a well-made slot caper game. The cartoonish sound and visuals have a decidedly cheeky tone. This is not a game that is bursting with extras.
It's all about the respins, which can be a blast. I found it to be a feast or famine affair, which is not surprising given the extreme volatility. The ideal scenario is to land three Safe Door symbols to win 10,000 times your stake.
Respins are similar to the Money Cart Bonus feature in Money Train 2 (from Relax Gaming), which includes golden bonus symbols that award cash prizes and special character symbols that award various bonuses.
It is also similar to the Lucky Wagon Spins feature found in Fire in the Hole (from Nolimit City). The difference is that these two slots pay out up to 50,000 and 60,000 times the bet respectively.
