Money Vault Slot Review
This is a nearly one-off creation of Bally Technologies in terms of the mechanics applied, particularly, a 243 ways to win approach. This model is typical for some of industry giants like Microgaming or Playtech but the U.S. developer rarely if ever opts for this no-payline concept. Anyway, all winning combos in Money Vault count on adjacent reels left to right and the position of matching symbols on the contributing reels is not the determining factor.
Low-value symbols, as it happens more often than not, are plain card values from 9 to A. Payouts for these symbols vary between x5 and x100 a line bet (or up to 2.5 times a total bet). Other regular symbols include a stack of golden coins ($800), a big diamond ring ($1000), a money clip made of gold ($1200) and a safe stuffed with dollar bills ($2000). The payouts given in brackets above are for five of a kind and on the maximum bet. Bet sizes are flexible ranging from $0.4 to $160 per spin.
Though having an ability to sub for regular pictures, the wild represented by the word “Wild” against masses of coins and dollar bills appears on the second and fourth reels only. Wilds cannot create their own payable combinations but they are really helpful at times.
Money Bag feature
A money bag symbol lands on three middle reels only. To kick the titular feature into action, you need to spin in three money bag symbols at a time. You will then be invited to pick 1 out of 3 bags that would reveal an instant award from 3 to 50 times a total wager in the current game spin.
Wheel of Fortune and free spins
A Cashspin symbol depicting half a sectored wheel lands on reels 1, 3 and 5. Three of them landing simultaneously give you one wheel spin performed on the second screen. The wheel is split into 30 spaces marked with two kinds of prizes: instant cash values and free spins. The total number of credits varies between 200 and 20,000, which translates into a hefty $80,000 at the maximum. If free spins are awarded as a result of a wheel spin, you get 12 re-triggerable free spins. Besides, players will see a x2 multiplier attached to all winnings earned in the feature. Better yet, a money bag feature is also available during free spins, which can result in big wins when free spins expire.
Money Vault shines at features. It has a wild symbol, a pick-to-win bonus and an enticing wheel of fortune that unlocks free spins and cash awards. Recommended for low stakes players and high-rollers alike.
