Get ready for a heist done right. Charging in guns blazing and hoping to score some small cash is for amateurs. In this slot, we are working with professionals: real Vault Crackers!
With their aid, we do not have to worry about any high-risk action. Instead, the online slot offers a medium variance and a jackpot worth 1410x your total stake.
Helping you achieve the top prize are cash safes, the Hold-Up Artist, and the Heist Master!
Theme, Graphics and Sounds
We love the background image in this release. It really gets you in a bank-heist mood. We see detailed floor plans of the building we will be infiltrating.
Scattered across the table are tools used for cracking safes. The background is static but more than makes up for it with the extra details. Hats off to the artist team at Red Tiger. This slot looks incredible.
You play Vault Cracker on a five-reel, three-row board with ten fixed paylines. The number of paylines cannot be changed.
Find at least three identical symbols to win, which follow an active payline. Winning combinations must have matching icons in adjacent positions and have to start with the leftmost reel. If these conditions are met, you will receive the associated cash prize.
Cash safes are non-paying symbols that can appear in any position on the board. Safes can appear as steel, bronze, or gold.
The colour of the safe tells us what kind of prize we can find in it. Steel, bronze, and gold safes pay up to 5x, 15x, and 30x, respectively.
To win the prizes hidden within, you need to land the Hold-Up Artist or the Heist Master.
If the Hold-Up Artist lands, he will open all safes to reveal and collect the cash prizes within.
If the Heist Master appears on the middle reel, he will trigger the Heist bonus instead.
During the Heist special feature, all safe symbols lock in place. A re-spin is played, during which all non-locked positions can display a safe or a blank space.
If another safe lands on the board, another re-spin is granted. When no new safes land, all safes on the screen will open and grant their cash prize.
If all possible positions are covered by a safe, it will reveal a multiplier diamond. The diamond’s multiplier will be applied to the total Heist bonus win.
After Heist finishes, it triggers the Second Chance wheel. If the wheel lands on green, it gives you another go at the Heist bonus.
If it lands on red, the special feature ends. Each time the bonus retriggers Heist, an extra quarter of the wheel turns red.
You can retrigger the special feature up to four times in one bonus activation.
Where To Play Vault Cracker?
RTP, bet sizes and volatility
Red Tiger’s game comes with a 95.66% RTP. This is below the current industry average of 96%.
You can bet between $0.20 and $60 on each spin.
The developers went with a medium variance that fits better with a 1410x jackpot.
Vault Cracker is the perfect example of a simple slot done right. It has just enough bonuses to keep you engaged without feeling overwhelming.
The game is all about getting as many instant wins as possible. If they stopped there, this would be an okay release and nothing more.
When you add Red Tiger’s telltale polish, it becomes something better. While the criminal duo may not persuade high rollers, they make a convincing argument for everyone else.
We rate the slot 4 out of 5 stars.
