Cash Bandits is an animated take on the perpetual battle between cops and robbers. On the reels you’ll find a cop in sunglasses talking into his walkie-talkie while a hapless looking robber, complete with an eye mask, carries a sack full of dollars. Getaway cars, guns, money, handcuffs and a half-eaten cops donut all appear too, giving the game a fun and frantic feel.
The main bonus feature is where the big money is – it just depends how good a robber you are. Here are the highlights of this classic RTG gambling machine:
The scatter symbol shows the copper’s badge with the words ‘Cops and Robbers’ on it. Land 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols anywhere on the reels and you’ll enter the free spins feature. You’ll now be presented with a screen showing a series of four different vaults. The vaults have combinations of 1, 2, 3 and 4 numbers respectively and your aim is to reveal the combinations.
You’ll unlock the vaults by picking numbers – with 5, 6 or 8 picks based on activating the feature with 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols. Here are the awards for unlocking each vault (which are added to your initial 5 free games and a 2x multiplier):
It is possible to unlock more than one vault. For example, if you were to unlock both the 2 digit and the 4-digit codes, you’d be awarded a total 65 free spins (the initial 5, plus 10, plus 50) and an 8x multiplier (the initial 2, plus 2, plus 4).
Once you’ve finished the unlocking the vaults part of the feature, the free spins will start, where hopefully you’ve got a nice number of spins/multiplier combination. Any time you retrigger the free spins you’ll find 5 free games added to your existing total.
The highest paying symbol in this RealTime Gaming designed pokie is the wild which features a golden vault. Land 5 vaults in a row and you’ll win 2,500 coins, while it will also substitute for any other symbol apart from the scatter. The bank itself is next on the pay table, worth 1,500 coins, while the cop pays 1,250 coins and his rival robber is worth 800 coins.
Other themed symbols include the getaway car, handcuffs, piles of cash and that donut with bite marks!
As well as the standard wins, you can also pick up the minor and major jackpots after any spin – these are awarded at random.
Cash Bandits features a 5×3 reel configuration and a total of 25 win-lines that pay from left to right.
Cash Bandits plays out against the backdrop of a bank with a single teller window. In the foreground there is a table which can only be described as a very expensive and dangerous mess – on the table is gold and cash, alongside guns, bullets, handcuffs, knives, masks and more. The reels themselves have the blue of the law as a background colour, while the cartoon style symbols add a nice sense of humour to the game, as does the fun soundtrack.
RealTime Gaming has developed an entertaining and enjoyable pokie in Cash Bandits. The base game offers up the chance for a series of impressive wins, while the two progressive Jackpots ensure a big prize can be won after any spin. You’ll certainly want to land the main feature of the game, due to the exciting and adrenaline adding safe unlocking opening. Land the right combination of numbers and you could easily find yourself with more than 50 free spins and an equally impressive multiplier. That would make for quite a heist!
