|The high volatility of this game can mean that there are long gaps between wins. The RTP is within the average range, and the bet range suits casual players.
Lucky robbers who land the special symbols during the main respins round can expand the game’s grid from a four-reel, five-row up to a seven-by-seven grid.
Wilds, re-spins and other features
Ontario players will find the vaults have a wild and Hold and Win-style feature during the respins.
The bank robber is the wild and will substitute for all symbols except the bonus symbol. The robber wild can appear on all the reels.
Players in Ontario will receive three respins when they land three bonus symbols on reels one, three and five.
This triggers the Empty The Bank Respin feature.
Ontario players can buy free spins for 80x their bet with the bonus buy feature. They can also activate an Ante Bet for 25x extra, which increases the chance of landing free spins.
Hold and Win
The Empty The Bank Respin feature works like a typical Hold and Win round. Bonus symbols remain in place and become money symbols with random multiplier values as the rest of the reels spin.
During the respins, eight special symbols can land. When one lands, it resets the respins to three. If three safe door symbols land, the maximum win is instantly granted. The round will end if the grid is full of special symbols or there are no more respins.
