Novomatic Bank Raid Slot Review and Free Play

Bank Raid: Demo

Join a bumbling burglar trying to outfox the cops in Bank Raid, a crime caper-themed video slot from Novomatic. It’s a 5 reel, 25 payline game that comes with scatter payouts that can reach up to 200 times your stakes as well as a free spins feature with expanding wilds. Try and make off with the loot, on all devices, from between 50p and £100 per spin.

The design in Bank Raid has a cartoon feel – the lower value playing cards feature added torches, hand cuffs, hats and crowbars. The higher value symbols also match the cops and robbers theme.

You’ll see a newspaper front page, a police officer’s cap, a bag full of swag and a pile of gold bars. All of these symbols offer payouts of 20 times your total stake if you land 5 in combination. They’re joined by the bank which is the most rewarding standard symbol, offering awards of 3, 10 or 30 times your total bet if you land 3, 4 or 5 on a payline.

Helping to create those winning lines is the masked burglar who is the game’s wild – he replaces all other symbols bar the scatter. The burglar can be lucrative in his own right too – land 3, 4 or 5 wilds on a single payline and you’ll pocket 4, 20 or 40 times your total stake. The burglar can provide even more help during the feature too.

You’ll need to land 3, 4 or 5 scatters (the American-style cop car) on the same spin to trigger that Free Games feature. Complementing the impressive potential payout of 2, 20 or 200 times your stake is an allocation of 10 free spins. Not the most generous sounding offer at first glance – every time a wild lands though, it will expand and fill the whole of the reels. If 3 or more cop cars drive into view another round of 10 free spins will be added to your total.

Trying to rob this bank can deliver big rewards but it can be risky for your bankroll. We’d put the variance here in the medium to high range. The base game can plunder your buy-in but it’s possible to make off with plenty of lolly in the feature round, especially if you manage to land multiple stacked wilds on the same free spin.

Bank Raid is a typical Novomatic video slot – it’s not especially sophisticated as far as design goes but the feature round makes this battle between the cops and robbers a very playable proposition. If you like expanding wilds, Black Knight II from WMS offers you this and they remain locked for the duration of the feature!
