Money, Money, Money
The theme of Money Vault is, well, money! There are plenty of cash symbols and those linked to lovely moolah, including diamond rings, wads of cash and safes stuffed with money. Of course, these are supplemented by the playing card symbols Ace, King, Queen, Jack, Ten and Nine.
The 243 ways to win feature requires you to pick up matching symbols in any position on two or more adjacent reels, starting from reel 1 and moving to the right. Your payout will be multiplied should more of the symbol appear in the same reel.
There are 243 different ways to win….have you got 243 different ways to celebrate!?
The graphics offer a sharp burst of colour, it’s almost like the Wheel of Fortune game board, while the sounds add to the atmosphere – a countdown-like ticking sound keeping you on the edge of the seat. If you spin a win you’ll hear the glorious ‘victory tone’ which slot game players around the world love to trigger.
Bonuses and Features
The wild symbol in Money Vault is a stash of cash, and this will substitute for any other symbol when it appears on reels 2 or 4 apart from the scatter. Naturally, this creates more opportunities to hit one or more of those 243 ways in which to win.
The scatter icon is the blue Cash Pin logo, and if you spin three of these on reels 1, 3 and 5 you will trigger the Cash Spin Wheel Bonus game, which has become synonymous with many slot games around the globe. Here, you will spin the wheel and hope to land on either the money sign, in which you win the shown amount and the round ends, or the free spins logo. which launches the Free Games feature and can earn you between 200 and 20,000 in credits.
During the free spins round, you will have 12 freebies at your disposal, and each win here comes backed with a 2x multiplier. You can even win more free spins within the bonus round, which will be added to your tally.
And the bonus-based fun doesn’t end there! If you land three of the scatter symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4 then you will trigger the Money Bag feature. Here you will need to select one of the three money bags that are displayed on screen, and the credit value of that bag – which can range from 3 to 50 times your original stake – will be added to your balance.
Bally Technologies might be on the newer players in the game, but already they have come up with the goods in the shape of the Money Vault slot game.
It is a fun game to play that looks and sounds great on your chosen device. The traditional slot gameplay is fast-paced and action-packed, and with a number of different bonus rounds and feature games to trigger – more than most other slot variations – Money Vault boasts plenty of re-play value.
Of course, the 243 ways to win factor is another reason for Money Vault’s popularity, and it is this which ensures you are never far from a winning spin; which of course helps your kitty to stretch even further.
The only downside to Money Vault is that it seems to have a bit of a lag when the reels are spinning. It might be linked to an inconsistent broadband connection, but often there is adelay whilst waiting for the fifth reel to stop moving. This is a slight annoyance, rather than a major cause for concern.
All in all, Money Vault is a tremendous slot game that offers plenty of bang for your buck.
