Vault Cracker MegaWays Slot: If Cat Burglary Was a Game Show

There is a certain amount of romance in a masterful heist. They’re like magic shows, except the magician never brings the item he or she made disappear back. It probably also helps that these artists generally target those who can afford to lose what has been stolen. It feels a bit like karmic justice if you believe in that sort of thing.

Watch the artists at work in Vault Cracker MegaWays slot from Red Tiger Gaming.

Can you crack the vault?

Vault Cracker MegaWays slot does, as the title suggests, offer megaways. This feature randomly varies the number of symbols that appear in each reel in the range of two to seven symbols. The number of symbols that appear on the reels will determine the number of ways to win the slot offers, up to a maximum of 117,649 ways.

With each spin, there is a chance that bronze, silver, or gold safes will appear on the reels. If at least one of these symbols appears on the reels at the same time as a Hold-up Artist symbol, the safes will open, revealing mystery cash prizes. The color of the safe will determine the value of the cash prizes. Bronze safes will offer wins up to 5x your bet, silver up to 15x your bet, and gold up to 30x your bet.

When the Heist Master appears on the reels, he will trigger a round of the slot’s bonus game. It’s basically a hold-and-win bonus game with a slight twist. This means that all other symbols will disappear, and only safe symbols will appear with each spin. When a safe symbol appears on the reels, it will become sticky. The reels will continue to spin, adding new safes to the reels until the Cat Burglar symbol appears. When that happens, a jackpot wheel will be spun. If it lands on one of the green sections, your bonus round will continue. However, if it lands on a red section, your round will be over. Each time a Car Burglar symbol appears on the reels, the red section of the jackpot wheel will account for a little more of the available sections.

Is Vault Cracker MegaWays slot worth the risk?

Vault Cracker MegaWays slot offers medium volatility, which gives the gameplay a balance between small, consistent wins and the rare big wins. While the slot does allow you to play for up to $248,400 in winnings, thanks to the 2,484x max multiplier, you’ll have to be betting at $100 a spin to win that top cash prize. The slot has an RTP rating of 95.71%.

The slot doesn’t do anything out of this world with the theme or graphics. They’re not bad. They’re just a little predictable. The same, however, can’t be said for the bonus game. The twist that the Red Tiger Gaming team added to a standard hold-and-win feature was genuinely surprising and entertaining. I just wish the same out-of-the-box thinking was used for the rest of the slot. If that had been the case, this would have been one hell of a slot. As is, I give Vault Cracker MegaWays slot a seven out of ten.

If you’re looking for a few slots from Red Tiger Gaming that I think did nail the theme, I recommend trying out Cyber Attack and Golden Cryptex.
