Walt is an affulent, dapper, bank manager from the 1920's. Well at least we think he is, as the theme of this new slot by Magnet Gaming is a little confused. Whilst Bank Walt definitely delivers the glamorous and exciting vibes of the roaring Twenties, we're not to sure why this party seems to be taking place outside of a bank vault. It's probable that Magnet Gaming, the software developers behind this new game, simply want you to know there's plenty of riches up for grabs - and we suppose we cannot argue with that!
Although it may be a slightly obscure idea - a prohibition party in a bank - the good news is that this slot not only looks fantastic but is full of great bonus features too. It boasts two progressive jackpots, wild symbols, scatters and more, and Walt the bank teller-cum-party boy is there to help you along the way. Curious? Delve into the 1920's with Bank Walt at GoWin Casino now.
Game Mechanics - How to Play Bank Walt
Bank Walt is a five reel, twenty payline slot brought to us by Magnet Gaming. It's quite rare for Magent Gaming to produce a slot with a traditional configuration, as they usually go for a more quirky layouts, yet this does mean that the game is pretty easy to get to grips with, even with all the added bonus features that we'll talk about later on. What's more, it's playable from as little as 20p per spin, all the way up to £10, which makes it perfect for all sorts of budgets.
As we mentioned in the introduction, we have to admit that we found this slot's theme to be a little muddled. Whilst we appreciate the 1920's backdrop, we still don't really understand why we're partying in a bank vault. That being said, Bank Walt certainly oozes glamour and grandeur.
The reels hang on an Art Deco golden frame and symbols on the reels include cigars, gramophones and whisky - all the things you need to throw a great prohibition knees up. The highest paying symbol is the bank vault itself, which will reward you with 2,000x your wager for a five of a kind combination. The game also includes a wild symbol which will appear on reel three and which will substitute for any other symbol to form a winning combination.
Bank Walt RTP and Volatility
Bank Walt has a theoretical return to player rate of 96.5%, which is actually slightly above average. That being said, thanks to the large jackpots amount on offer, we'd classify this as a medium variance game. This means that players may find themselves spinning without winning for a while, but just remember that the wins will come eventually!
Alongside wild symbols, Bank Walt boasts two bonus rounds, each which is triggered by it's own scatter symbol. The first bonus round is called The Vault and this is activated when you find 4 or more Vault symbols anywhere on the reels. You will then be presented with 40 deposit boxes. You must click to reveal cash prizes, green arrows or gold coins.
Cash prizes do what they say on the tin, whilst green arrows will up the amount of these prizes. Furthermore, the gold coins will be collected and if you find five, you'll be given a bonus spin. Players are able to open five deposit boxes in the first two columns, four boxes in the third and fourth columns and three boxes in the final column.
At least one deposit box in the final column will contain a Super Jackpot Flash prize, which allows you to proceed to try and claim the game's progressive jackpot.
The second bonus round is the The Code Lock game and this is triggered when both halves of the game scatter symbol align on the fourth and fifth reels of the slot. This game is played on a circular board, and players are granted 10 dice rolls to start with. The aim of the game is to progress around the board collecting cash prizes and golden coins. Four or more gold coins will grant you a bonus roll of the dice and there's a maximum of 4,000x your wager to be won. Furthermore, reach the middle of the board and you'll be in with a chance of winning a progressive jackpot!
