Take the classic game of noughts and crosses, the endless thrill of online slots, and one of the coolest bonus features you’ll ever see and - voilà - you’ve got Action Bank. Action Bank slot was made by SG and has twin themes: the game of noughts and crosses, and a bank robbery. It has a free spins round and the unique Big Bank bonus feature. The Bank part of it comes from the fact that money and vaults are key elements to what is a simple but potentially very profitable slot.
Those with a soft spot for all things retro will enjoy this online slot that has just four regular symbols in addition to two special ones- the Scatter (a Golden Vault) and a Wild (a cheeky-looking Joker). This game has been around since 2015 but at first glance has a look and feel about it that could make you think it was made twenty years earlier. We mean that in a truly positive way - ‘retro’ is making a come-back and this slot perfectly captures the nostalgia of early, classic slots, with both retro graphics and sound effects.
If you play enough slots, you’ll come across the same bonus features time and time again so it’s certainly a plus point that the ones in Action Bank are notably different to what else is out there. We’ll pique your interest with an explanation of these bonus features shortly. You can Bank on that.
Choosing your stake for each spin is far easier here than on slots made by rival provider NetEnt. There are always 20 paylines active so all you have to do is adjust the bet per line up and down, till you get to the amount you want.
You can make use of the Autospins function if you wish; it does what it says on the tin. So just choose a certain number of spins to be played automatically and you can also set limits on losses and wins so that the Autospins comes to a halt if that figure is reached.
One of the highlights of the Action Bank slot is that it’s introduced a completely new slant to its free spins round, as well as creating another totally novel Action Bank bonus feature. At a time where so many different casino slots tend to do the same thing when it comes to bonus rounds, SG deserve credit for being original and innovative.
Five Scatters anywhere on the reels will activate the free spins round. The Scatters don’t appear straight away but rather it’s the 0 (noughts) symbol that can turn into the Scatter symbol (the Vault), once the reels stop. And here’s where the game becomes one-of-a-kind.
First up, you’ll be asked to choose one of the five Scatter symbols that helped activate the round by clicking on it; once you’ve done that, the number of free spins awarded to you is revealed. So: 5, 10, 15, 20 , 25 or 30. Here’s where things get really interesting. You can choose to just play the ones you’re awarded or you can Gamble (it’s a 50/50 shot) to try to get more. So for example, if you got 15 you could try to get 20 by stopping the flashing light on ’20’.
The downside is that if you get it wrong, you’ll only be left with 10 free spins rather than the original 15. You can keep going till you get the full 30 but as ever, it pays to not be too greedy.
During the free spins round, more free spins can be activated by getting another five Scatters on screen. An extra bonus is that Reel 1 sometimes has symbols on it carrying a Multiplier.
Occasionally the Big Bank Bonus will be randomly triggered. You’re taken into a room with 15 different vaults. Behind these 15 are the following symbols in order of value, most valuable first: diamonds (4 of them), rubies (5) and sapphires (6).
As soon as you reveal three of the same symbol, that’s what you win, with each one representing a multiplier that results in a cash prize. Getting three diamonds is easier said than done but then again with a payout of 500x your bet, you only need to land one of these once in a blue moon to be in clover.
Wilds appear more often than on other slots which helps you pick up regular wins but the real money is of course made by activating one of the two bonus features. You may have to be a little patient to get them but it’s worth the wait.
Action Bank is also a mobile slot available on your smartphone, iPad or tablet, so you can try and activate the Big Bank Bonus while munching on your lunchtime sandwich or waiting in the queue at the…Bank.
