Key to Success Review
Light & Wonder (formerly known as SG Digital) is making waves within the iGaming world through its innovative mechanics. Key to Success features the impressive unlimited free spins mode.
This crime slot plays on 5-reels with 1,024 ways to win and the slot is all about breaking into a bank vault. To do this, players need to trigger the unlimited free spins mode to gain wins of up to 2,756x the stake.
When the slot opens up, players will find themselves in a decadent looking bank vault. In the middle of the screen, there is a golden door as well as an elegant-looking interior.
On the reels, there are various symbols relating to the slot such as piles of cash as well as bank vaults to fit in with the theme. Sadly, there's nothing animated and nothing overly stand-outs as unique but it all looks decent enough.
The music is the best thing about this slot as there is the grooviest track playing throughout. It feels like something you'd hear in a 1960s heist movie but perfectly builds up the atmosphere for the slot.
During the base game, there isn't anything overly impressive going on and it's just like any other slot. However, the free spins round is where the excitement happens as the free spins only end when a certain criteria has been met.
The spin and bet level is to the right side of the screen, whilst the general settings at hidden to the left. There is a special button in settings that can actually change the screen to be left-handed which is a cool addition.
Key to Success is quite middle of the road when it comes to the win potential. On the one hand, there is a decent RTP of 96% at the average level and a medium volatility level giving players a mixture of high and low volatility wins.
However, the maximum win is a measly 2,756x the stake which is low for a modern online slot and players would expect at least 5,000x the stake for a medium volatility slot.
The overall concept and premise of Key to Success is an admirable one and there was the potential for this slot to be a new classic. Sadly, the maximum win is just a little bit too low to make Key to Success into a masterpiece.
Despite this, Key to Success is still worth a spin for the unlimited free spins mode and can lead to some thoroughly thrilling moments.
