Bar X Safecracker Megaways Slot Review
Bar X Safecracker Megaways is a somewhat sober Megaways slot from Blueprint Gaming, which despite the lack of bells and whistles is still fun to play. The theme is based on the famous Bar X slot machines, which are extremely popular in the UK in particular, especially in gambling halls and betting offices. The characteristic graphics (with only a Bar, an X and an O symbol as the highest symbols) seem a bit boring at first glance, but in practice it provides a clear Megaways slot.
What do you get at Bar X Safecracker Megaways?
As we already mentioned, this is not a Megaways slot with many extra features. There is no Buy a Bonus option, there are no level ups and there are no wilds with multipliers.
- Up to 117,649 Megaways
- 6 rolls and a top row a la Bonanza and Extra Chilli
- Mystery symbols
- Mystery free spins
- Unlimited multipliers during the free spins bonus
- A maximum win of 50,000 x the bet per spin
How to play at Bar X Safecracker Megaways Slot?
You can play Bar X Safecracker Megaways from 0.10 euros per spin and with a maximum of 10 euros per spin. Winning combinations disappear and make way for new ones: new symbols fall down on the large playing field, new symbols move from right to left on the top row. Every turn changes the number of rows of symbols, so you play every turn with a varying number of Megaways. The maximum number of Megaways is 117,649 units. The variance is high, which is not surprising if the maximum payout is limited to 50,000 times the total bet. There is also a monetary limit: everything that you win more than 250,000 euros will be canceled.
The theoretical payout percentage is 96.50%.
Symbols and payouts
The wild symbol replaces all symbols except the scatters. The premium symbols consist of the diamond, the seven, the BAR symbol and the X. The diamond pays the most out of all symbols: 50 x the total bet for a 6-of-a-kind. The other high symbols pay out between 2 x and 5 x the total bet with the same 6. Of course the card symbols are worth the least, although with a Megaways slot that never means so much. Spin 6 x a 9, 10, J, Q, K or A and you win between 1 x and 1.5 x the total bet. Golden circles appear on the reels every so often. These are mystery symbols, all of which change to the same symbol. This can be any symbol, with the exception of the scatter. A powerful feature, which can receive huge payouts especially during the free spins bonus.
Free spins bonus with unlimited multipliers
Collect 4 or more scatters (the gold vaults) and you win that oh so important free spins bonus. There is no Buy a Bonus option, so there's nothing else to do than spin and hope for as many vaults as possible. The free spins bonus is enormously erratic: both in terms of game play and que hit frequency. Don't be surprised if you need a few thousand spins before you finally get that free spins bonus. Once the time has come, you can first open one of the 8 safes. Behind every vault is a mystery number of free spins; the more scatters that have activated the bonus, the higher the numbers. During the free spins bonus, each winning combination produces an additional multiplier of +1.
You can also earn extra free spins: spin 3 or 4 scatters on the top row for 5 and 10 extra free spins respectively.
What do we think of the Bar X Safecracker Megaways slot?
Although Bar X Safecracker by Blueprint Gaming did not leave a smashing first impression, it soon turned out to be a damn good Megaways slot. It is precisely because of the simple design and the sober graphics that it is a pleasure to play and you will soon forget that this slot has no flashy animations or a special storyline. Add to that the fact that during the free spins bonus, through the wilds, extra multipliers and mystery symbols, you can make very nice ticks and you have a winner.
