Beat The Bank is an online slot machine from Nextgen Gaming which joins a small but growing genre of crime-themed games. There’s less humour in this slot than we’ve seen in others such as Cops N’ Bandits or Mugshot Madness but the subject is the same – a cunning thief is attempting to break into a safe to steal the goodies inside.
Beat The Bank is a relatively basic-looking slot featuring twenty paylines split between five reels; in the background we can just about see huge piles of cash behind some protective bars – clearly the target of our dastardly villain.
There are four main symbols, each related to the theme and we have some blueprints, a security camera, some sparkling jewels and a policeman. Playing card icons make up the low value symbols, the thief himself is the wild symbol which also triggers the free spins and the safe is the scatter which activates the second bonus feature.
The their is the key to the free spins and you need to land this bearded character on reels two, three and four at the same time. Fifteen free spins are now yours for the taking and any prizes you earn during the spins will be tripled.
It’s also possible to re-trigger more free spins while you’re playing this round.
Beat The Bank Feature
This is an interesting little mini-game in which it’s possible to earn a lot of money; three or more of the safe scatter symbols are required anywhere on the reels and you will then see two safes on the screen. Choosing the safe with the money in will double your scatter prize and you can continue like this until you pick the wrong one.
There’s an upper limit on wins unfortunately and it’s reached when you’ve won 1024x your triggering bet. This game can also be activated from the free spins round.
Beat The Bank Online Slot Playing Tips
Keep all those paylines activated to ensure the best chance of landing the free spins round – the Beat The Bank feature will be triggered by the scatters however many lines you are playing.
This is not the most engaging slot we’ve ever played but you should check it out if you want to complete your collection of crime-related online slots. The music cranks up a slightly tense atmosphere which can enhance the proceedings.
