Safe Cracker Slots

SafeCrackerSafe Cracker is a Playtech classic slot machine, offering its players a very limited number of paylines, but on the other hand managing to improve on the old recipe that is used for so many of these games. It does this by placing the reels in the middle of the action, making them look like they are used to open the bank’s safe. The safe cracking theme is a popular one, bank robbers being part of quite a few slot machines, no matter what developer we’re talking about.

This is a game with 3 reels and 1 payline, a classic layout for a classic game. The design is not a classic though and the same can be said about the bonus game, the slot’s only feature. A progressive jackpot is the biggest prize on the line, or up to $20,000 otherwise.

Features of Safe Cracker

Despite this being a classic slot, it still manages to offer one interesting feature to its players. I’m talking about the bonus game, which allows you to try and open the safe. The requirement is for three symbols with the Gold Key to be on the payline. When you get the three Keys, the door to the safe will open, revealing deposit boxes. You get either a bonus or an alarm to go off when you open these boxes. There are three alarms and seven bonuses, and you have to pick boxes without knowing what you’re going to find inside. Getting a prize is not a guarantee, since you could get the alarm from your first try, but then again you could get up to 7 bonus prizes from it.


Betting options and jackpots

You get only one line here, but it allows for up to three coins to be used in its bets. Each of these coins has a value of up to $5, the lowest denomination being at $0.25. If all the coins are selected, your bet is up to $15.

If the symbol with the cash appears three times on the payline, you’re in luck. It will give you the slot’s best payout, but the exact value will vary depending on the number of coins you used. For three coins, its payout is a progressive jackpot that is often close to $100,000 in value, or even goes above it. For two coins, it will be worth only 4,000 coins, or up to $20,000. The huge difference in value recommends that you always select all the coins, even if you have to reduce their value.

Design and symbols

Safe Cracker has a better theme than most slot machines that offer only 3 reels, one of the reasons why I enjoyed it. The screen you play on shows you the door to a bank’s vault, all the options being placed on it. You have the various displays on the door, plus a device that tries to find the combination to the door. This device is composed of a screen where you are shown your current bet, the reels which try to guess the right symbols and the betting options at the bottom. The paytable gets its own page, as it doesn’t fit on the same page as the reels.

Symbols: Golden Key (bonus), Cash (progressive jackpot), Dynamite (300 coins), Drill (225 coins), Crowbar (150 coins) and Keyhole (75 coins).


Is It Worth Playing?

It’s not a typical classic slot, using its design and its features to make sure you’re going to have a lot more fun with it than with most of the others that are considered its competition. Its progressive jackpot is another good reason to check it out, you will not regret it if you like 3 reel games.

This Safe Cracker slot is offered by all online casinos with Playtech software, playable either in practice or in real money mode.
