Empty the Bank Slot Bonus

Empty the Bank Slot Paytable

Gameplay in Base Mode

Empty the Bank is truly a high volatility game. A high volatility game will pay out less often than a low volatility game. However, playing a high volatility game means that your chances of winning big in a short period of time are much higher. And the slot offers three separate RTP settings. The theoretical volatility rests at 96.48% as it is when in Ante Bet mode. When using the Buy Re-spins, the RTP will sit at 96.44%.

In terms of base game gameplay, Empty the Bank has a fairly traditional setup. All icons pay from left to right, using a 5×4 reel set, 20 paylines, and 11 different icons to match up that include Wilds and Bonus. The reel display is super clear, with large icons that display lovely bold colours that really make the images stand out. There are a variety of payouts with the icons varying from 0.25x up to 20x your bet.

Other Icons to be found have special behaviours: There is the Thief icon which behaves like a wild. It can be substituted for any symbol apart from the Bonus. What is different about these Wilds is that they can be found on all reels. Most other slots would see limited Wilds, but not with Empty the Bank. The Safe icon is the bonus icon and can appear on reels 1,3 and 5 only. If you get 3 in view it will trigger the Empty the Bank Respin feature game and it’s time to go and play for big money!

Empty Safe Payout Symbols

  • J – J are the joint lowest payers of all but get a winning combination of 5 for 2x your bet. A winning combination of 3 will get you 0.25x
  • Q – Payout the same as J
  • K – 3 K’s in a winning combination will pay 0.5x your bet and getting a winning combination of 5 will pay you 3x
  • A – Payout the same as K
  • Coins – Stack of coins pay 1x for just 3 in a winning combination, while a combination of 5 will get you 4x
  • Cash – Wad of cash pay the same as coins
  • Gold Bar – Gold bars start at 2x for just 3 in a winning combination and for a combination of 5 will pay 10x
  • Sack of Jewels – Sacks of Jewels pay the same as Gold Bars
  • Crowns – these are the highest paying regular icon, paying 20x for a combination of 5. Just a combination of 2 will get you 0.25, getting 3 will pay 2.5x and 4 will pay 5x.

Bonus Feature

Entering the vault feels like you’ve just cracked Fort Knox! Upon arrival, you will be greeted by the thief who will be giving you both verbal and visual encouragement all throughout the feature. He will present you with a 7×6 set of safes with 20 of the safes already opened and 22 unopened. You get 3 respins meaning each opened safe can potentially be filled with a prize. If you do fill one of the unopened safes on any respin, then your respins will be filled up again!

The thing to note is, as well as multipliers, there are 7 special items that can be found in an unopened safe – each of the icons behaving differently, bringing huge benefits.

 A multiplier can be found in an unopened safe and range from 1x up to 10x. The multipliers found are added together and at the end of the feature round, the player is awarded the number of multiplier times their current bet. Note that if you are playing with the increased chance to win function, the multiplier will not recognise the extra cost as your bet, only the initial bet. So, if you are playing $100 spins and want to increase your chances, then you will pay $125 per spin. The multiplier will only recognise the $100 and not the $25.

  • Special Items: When in a high-paying feature game like Empty the Bank, every bonus spin really counts. This respin feature offers many an opportunity for the game to continue with a seemingly endless amount of respins on offer.
  • Alarm – Reel in the alarm item and it will boost your Respins up to 4! Over the course of a feature round, this is an extremely powerful icon to have behind you.
  • Ladder – Finding the ladder will open the row of safes above you, giving you up to an additional 5 boxes, presenting 5 more opportunities to find an icon!
  • Computer – A computer will double all the number of multipliers on the screen at that moment. Any multiplier found after finding the computer, will not be subject to a x2 value.
  • Hammer – will open row 7 giving you up to an additional 6 opened safes! With a guaranteed 3 spins to go, this presents at least 18 more opportunities to add to your winnings or even find the jackpot!\
  • Drill – will open row 1 giving you up to 6 opened safes presenting at least 18 more opportunities to land a prize!
  • Walkie Talkie – Finding a walkie talkie really gets your heart beating as it is guaranteeing you a great return on your bet. The cell phone will reward you with an additional +1 on to every multiplier, every spin, for every open safe box that you have until the feature is over!
  • Thief – if triggered, he will collect all prizes on the screen and store them in his very own safe. This could potentially give you 41 more opened safes. It would be like having a double feature!
  • Safes – Safes get you the ultimate prize of 10,000x your bet, meaning that if you play at $100 a spin, you will win One Million Dollars! That is what this game is all about – the chance at life-changing money.
