The Action Bank slot machine is a 2015 slot game by Barcrest that features unique gameplay with only three symbols in the base game, a symbol that doesn’t mean anything, a free spins game and a bonus game that can award up to 500x win. You may recognise the Action Bank slot machine from UK arcades which is available on a £500 jackpot, £2 price per play.
The Action Bank slot features something that is rarely seen, a symbol that doesn’t do anything! It’s a nought, O, and the only thing it does is that it has a certain random chance of transforming into a Vault Scatter symbol. This happens on almost every spin, and the more naughts you have, the greater the chance of getting some precious Scatters. The only three paying symbols in the game are, in order of significance, Cross, Bar and 7. They pay for three, four and five-of-a-kind. There is a Joker Wild symbol which substitutes for all symbols except for Scatter.
The graphics aren’t that good on the Action Bank slot machine and can tire the eyes quickly, as the naughts and crosses are huge, in high contrast, red, white and black. Also, during the reel spin it can get really ugly as the symbols aren’t blurred. The setup of this game is interesting at first sight, but can get tiresome afterwards. The only pleasant sight in the game, both because of graphics and the value is the Big Bank Bonus and its vaults that hold prizes.
Action Bank Slot Machine Bonus
The free spins game on Action Bank by Barcrest Gaming starts when you land 5 Vault Scatters, and you’ll get 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 or 30 free spins. You’ll click one of the Vault Scatters and will therefore pick a number of free spins. Interestingly, when the number of free spins is determined, you can collect or gamble to reach the next level of free spins. It is recommended not to do that, as the chance is probably 50-50 and you don’t double your spins if you win.
The free spins game is not particularly rewarding compared to the base game, it’s mostly just free spins, but there’s a second level that’s the real goal of this slot. If you get awarded a Big Bank Bonus, you’ll see a bunch of vault doors behind which are 4 Diamonds, 5 Rubies and 6 Sapphires. Revealing three of a kind wins the respective multiplier and ends the bonus game. This is where the main win is, and you can get up to 500x your bet in this feature, or if you are playing the £500 jackpot version, you will win one of the three progressive pots on offer.
The theoretical return to player (RTP) of Action Bank is 95.16% (92% in arcades), which isn’t much, but at least this is one of rare Barcrest games that doesn’t force a specific bet size upon you. So, the payout is the same regardless of your bet size, and your bet for 20 compulsory paylines can range from 0.20 to 400.
To conclude, the Action Bank slot is an innovative game that will appeal to players who want to try something new and who are tempted by that 500x possible win and the two bonus games. Action Bank definitely has a lot of things to offer to the players, and it’s a good pastime that can be very rewarding as well.
