The Vault Slot (Microgaming & Snowborn Games)
Microgaming, in partnership with Snowborn Games, has developed a slot game titled The Vault.
As I came to find out, the Vault is a very generous slot game with the potential to award top payouts.
The storyline revolves around a burglar who goes by the name Jewel. As a player, I was required to join Jewel inside a Parisian art gallery, where we will embark on a mission to steal the world’s largest diamond.
The Vault comes to you on 5 reels with a total of 20 pay lines. There is huge potential here as prices can go to as high as $100,000 jackpot.
The features present here makes the game to be so much fun. These are multipliers, re-spin, stacked wilds, and free spins.
Betting and Prizes
Microgaming offers varying prizes on their many slot games. For the Vault, you can use a minimum of $0.01 per line, or $0.20 per spin.
In simple terms, you can use $1 per line, but the maximum amount allowed is $20 per spin.
Although the Vault is a highly volatile game, it has good returns and you can expect up to 5,000x the stake from a single spin. The Vault has an RTP of 96%.
However, to get to that level, you will need the assistance of certain features like the 3x multipliers that you get from the free spins.
The Vault Slot Features
The stacked wild is one of the most important features on the Vault. You can use it as a replacement symbol or better still, to create winning combinations.
For example, if you manage to simultaneously land five wilds on the same betting line, you can be able to form a combo that has the potential to award you payouts of up to 100x the stake on each one.
The other important features are the scatters. If you get enough of these scatters, you will be able to trigger the game’s main area.
Collecting five scatter symbols will allow you to trigger the bonus feature. The bonus will reward you with 10 free spins. This will also come with a 3x multiplier that will go a long way in boosting the wins formed inside.
Theme & Design
The Vault is an art heist-themed slot game, and although it’s coming from one of the most reputable developers, the design is not particularly well done.
The design is quite dark, and the boring symbols do not help to brighten things up.
High-value symbols include several gemstones, diamonds, and gold bars. There are some Royals as well, and these are used to represent the low-end symbols.
The Vault has a couple of feature symbols as well, and one comes with a logo, while the other one has a bonus scatter.
The Vault comes with very high volatility, but the high payout potential is what gave me the drive to attempt this slot.
It not one of the best slots that you can expect from a top developer like Microgaming, nonetheless, it’s a good game to keep boredom at bay.
