Empty the Bank Review
It's not every day that you get the chance to be a world-renowned thief on the run, Pragmatic Play's Empty the Bank finally gives you the chance. This crime slot plays on 5-reels with 20 paylines, but really kicks in with the Empty the Bank Respin feature that can award players up to 10,000x their stake.
Embrace the life of crime for an exciting slot experience in Empty the Bank - who knows, you may even get away with the crime.
Set amongst a stunning backdrop of a metropolitan city, Empty the Bank starts on the roof of a tall building. It's an animated background with various things going across such as stray cats or animals lurking about on the roof. Similarly, the symbols on the reels fit in with the world in a cutesy and bright style - which makes the crime element a little softer (aka more like a children's heist film).
There is charming and whimsical heist music playing in between spins to build up suspense. Amazingly, the reels have a spin round attached that sounds like a safe breaking. It's only a subtle detail but greatly appreciated.
Empty the Bank is an uncomplicated game that focuses on spins and wins. The only change is through the respins round in which the reels change into a grid instead - but the core mechanics stay the same.
The spin button has the trademark Pragmatic Play crown can be found to the bottom right of the reels with the bet level and autospin next to it. To the left of the reels, you can find the other settings or even Ante Bet to increase your chances of winning by increasing the bet.
Empty the Bank is a high volatility slot with a solid RTP of 96.48%. The maximum win for this slot is 10,000x your stake, which can be won through the Empty the Bank Respin feature by filling the reels with the safe door symbol.
Whilst the respin feature is incredible, it does feel a little lacking. Empty the Bank looks and plays so well but there are barely any features to assist you aside from the respin feature. Perhaps, if they added an additional free spins mode or even high multipliers for an even better way to win.
Empty the Bank is a thoroughly enjoyable slot filled with decent wins through the respin feature. The full charm of the classical bank heist isn't lost and Pragmatic Play successfully delivers something that feels original. If you love crime slots or Pragmatic Play titles in general, then definitely give this one a spin!
