Safe Cracker Slots

Safe-CrackerSafe Cracker takes a common theme, that of the bank robber, and puts it in a game with a classic influence. With about half of the symbols being money related, while the others are classic Bar symbols, Safe Cracker shows its pub slot influence, but it also does its own thing and manages to be an appealing title. It looks like a classic slot and it behaves like one, so there isn’t much doubt about what you’re getting here.

One of the simpler titles in the Cryptologic collection, Safe Cracker gets you only one payline to bet on, which is arranged on a classic layout with 3 reels. There are big payouts inside, the jackpot being worth $100,000, but no features whatsoever.

Features of Safe Cracker

The fact that it’s a true classic will tell you immediately that this is not the kind of game where you can hope for a feature to liven up the action. There are no features, of any kind. The only thing you can do is spin the three reels, and hope to get a good combo, hopefully the best one.

Betting options and jackpots

With $15 being the maximum bet you can place in Safe Cracker, this game is not that expensive to play. There are bets of 1 to 3 coins used on the only line that can be activated, with denominations ranging from $0.25 to $5. You decide how many coins you use and what value they should have, but it will influence the size of the prizes you’re getting.

It’s a good idea to always place bets of three coins, even if you have to reduce the denomination of these coins. The reason is the extra bonus that the top jackpot combo gives you, and the same happens for the second best paying combo. While using one or two coins gets you a jackpot of 5,000 or 10,000 coins, the use of three coins will give you 20,000 (instead of the $15,000 which would be the natural progression from 10,000). That’s an extra 5,000 coins that are offered as a bonus for the use of three coins. Since coins go up to $5, those 20,000 coins will mean $100,000.

Design and symbols

The theme might be related to safe crackers and money in general, but it also has a healthy dose of classic symbols as well. Not only do you get half of the symbols from the classic side, you also have an outer casing that surrounds the game area and makes it look like a slot machine you would play in a pub or a casino. The outer area is the one that’s dragging the game down, as the reels and the paytable parts look decent enough.

Symbols: Pot of Gold (20,000 coins), Banknotes (800 coins), Piggy Bank (240 coins), Three Bar (150 coins), Two Bar (60 coins) and One Bar (30 coins).

Is It Worth Playing?

You’d have to be a fan of 3 reel games to be able to enjoy a game like this, without any features, but there are more advantages to it than just the fact that it doesn’t have extras. It has a relatively low wager requirement with big rewards, $15 being enough to get you a prize of up to $100,000.

You will find Safe Cracker at any online casino which chooses to use software from Cryptologic, playable either for free or for real money.
