When it comes to new online slots, there are several factors that could contribute to instant adornment from the pokies playing masses. It could be a massively popular theme, a fast-growing progressive jackpot or pristine aesthetic appeal. In the case of RealTime Gaming’s latest release, the whimsical humor of Cash Bandits tops the list.
The new Cash Bandits Slot was launched at RTG casinos in July, and already pokies fans are singing its praises… all the way to the bank! The playful cops-and-robbers theme is as eccentric as it is capricious, and when you throw in a generous progressive jackpot that can be struck at random, there isn’t much to avert players from this comical caper.
Cash Bandits Slots
Cash Bandits is a 5×3 reel, 25 payline video slot that features risibly suitable symbols, like sirens, handcuffs, and pink frosted donuts with rainbow sprinkles! The bank, the cop, the robber, a gun, megaphone, getaway car, money bag and pile of cash round out the rest of the standard paying symbols. But the ones you’ll really want to land on the reels are the Wilds and Scatters.
The Vault symbol is the wild, and takes the place of any necessary symbol to create the highest possible winning combination (except scatters). Lining up 5 Vaults on a payline will grant the highest standard payout of 2,500 coins.
The Cops & Robbers badge symbol is the scatter in Cash Bandits. Landing 3, 4 or 5 scatters anywhere on the reels will deliver instant payouts of 2x, 20x and 200x the triggering bet respectively. More importantly, when 3 or more Cops & Robbers symbol appear, the Vault Feature is activated.
Vault Feature: When the Vault Feature is triggered, the screen changes to reveal a series of 4 Vaults, each requiring a 1, 2, 3 or 4 digit code to open. The more scatters that activated the feature, the more numbers the player will be permitted to select. 3, 4 or 5 scatters grants 5, 6 or 8 numbers respectively.
By default, the player is awarded 5 free spins with a 2x multiplier. Unlocking any of the vaults will increase these rewards to as high as 90 free spins with a 12x multiplier. An additional 5 free spins can be retriggered during playthrough of free games.
Progressive Jackpots: The Cash Bandits Slot also features a duo of progressive jackpots; the Minor Jackpot and the Major Jackpot. There’s no specific combination players need to achieve to win these exponentially growing prizes. They can be randomly triggered after the completion of any spin, win or lose. Progressive wins are tacked on to any other wins associated with the triggering spin.
Additional Information: The new RTG slot comes equipped with the usual ‘Auto Play’ function, and includes a ‘Speed’ button to set the rapidity of automatic play. The minimum and maximum bet size is $0.01 to $0.25 per line, for a total max-payline bet range of $0.25 to $6.25. The maximum payout per spin is 50,000x the line bet.
