If you’re looking for a classic style online slot game but you still don’t want to give up the sleek design of a modern title then we have just the thing; Safecracker is a title brought to you by software developer Playtech which combines the best of both worlds. First off, let’s cover the theme. It’s a fairly common one involving – obviously – a safe. The game revolves around what you might need if you were a burglar and you were trying to crack it, hence the name. Now as for the execution, it enjoys superb quality graphics that are sharp, polished and a pleasure to look at. The controls are also much more sophisticated than many other old school slots by the same developer. They fit in with the overall design very organically, and at the same time you still have everything you will need for a comfortable gaming experience within easy reach.
This brings us to the game’s structure, which is very basic as the genre would imply. The layout is a simple grid of 3 reels and 3 rows and there is only a single payline for you to bet on which simplifies things even further. There are, however, three coin values for you to choose from and the 3 coin bet obviously comes with the highest payouts. With all of that in mind, the betting range starts at a minimum stake of 25p per spin. The maximum bet, on the other hand, will only set you back some £5 per single spin.
Unlike in most similar online slot games, you won’t have the paytable on constant display on the main screen. But you will want to have a look at it, because it will remind you of the significance of betting the maximum amount of coins. The payouts for the different coin values vary based on the number of coins. But most importantly, if you land all three of the most lucrative symbols on the payline with three coins bet, you will win the Progressive Jackpot.
Now, there may not be any Wilds, Scatters or freespins bonuses in this slot, but there is a bonus game in it, nevertheless. And while that may not be something that classic slot machine purists will approve of, it does add a little extra kick to gameplay. Not to mention that it’s a nice way to boost your winnings.
Notice that above the reels, there is a box reminding you of the presence of a Scatter. If you land all three Scatter symbols on the screen, this will trigger the Bonus Game, which will take you to a new screen. Then, you will have a selection of 10 safes to choose from. Three of these safes have alarms in them. But the remaining seven all have different cash prizes. You can continue opening the safes and collecting rewards until you land on the alarm. At that point – the feature is over.
Safecracker is among the better classic themed slot games out there. It boasts great quality visuals and on top of that it has fantastic winning potential. The presence of a Progressive is surely what makes this offering very appealing. But in addition there’s a small bonus game to aim for, as well.
