Action Bank is something of a heist themed video slot, and one of the simpler games to be released by Barcrest. Don’t expect too much from this slot, as elementary is the name of the game here. The video slot features a total of 5 reels and 20 paylines, with players able to wager cheaply, and win as much as 500x their total bet in the game. What you will notice about this slot is that there are very few symbols on the reels. This is great news, since it means that you stand a lessened chance of unwanted symbols clogging up your reels. Wins are petite, but fairly frequent in Action Bank, then.
Action Bank does have a wild symbol, and it is represented by a joker. This joker icon can replace all other symbols with the exception of scatter icons. Wilds can replace all standard paying symbols in the slot, which include crosses, bars, and 7s. It cannot replace the other main special icon in the slot.
Scatter icons are present in the game, and as we’ve just said, they cannot be replaced by wilds. Scatter symbols are represented by the vault, and they can trigger a Big Bank Bonus round. Players will pocket between 5 and 30 free spins when they pocket 3 or more scatters on the reels, and they will also pick up scattered wins via multipliers.
In Action Bank’s free spins bonus round, players will get to choose the number of free spins they wish to play with, though they won’t be able to make an informed decision, because the options are hidden behind 5 bank vaults. They must pick a vault to see how many free spins they have won. Players can change their mind once. During the bonus, some symbols will display a 2x multiplier and offer doubled wins, but not all.
Action Ban is simple, it is basic, but it is also fun. Barcrest are not renowned as the biggest of online casino software developers, so to produce an enjoyable game like this we have to take our hats off to them.
