The UK’s Push Gaming release another ‘Fat’ slot this May and it promises to offer thrills, spills, glamour and a whopping 25,000x potential.
Push are a slot studio renowned for their high variance slots where players can go from rags to riches in just a few spins when the reels land their way. Amongst their most successful slots are the ‘Fat’ series which include Fat Rabbit and Fat Santa. They add Fat Banker to the list, due for release on May 19th 2022.
Fat Banker has a retro art-deco feel to it that suggests it may be set way back in the 1930s jazz age in a city like New York. The action takes place on a 6×6 grid set amongst skyscrapers, then in the guilded lobby of a city bank in the free spins round.
For those looking to score a fat banker bonus when this game goes live at casinos with online slots in Canada later this month here are the key stats:
- Reels: 6
- Rows: 6
- Paylines: 50
- RTP: 96.43%
- Variance: High
- Top Payout: 25,000x
- Mininimum / Maximum Stake: 10c to $100
You’ll need to land three or more identical symbols on the reel set from left to right. Those symbols are made up of four low paying card suits and four premiums represented by the top hat, cigars, puppies and banker’s wife that pays out 20x for six on a payline.
There are also two wilds to help complete paylines – the banker himself who pays out 40x for six on a payline, and the money bag wild which comes with multipliers of up to 5x. These wilds can land anywhere on reels 2 to 6 during the game.
FAT BANKER DELIVERS THRILLS WITH FREE SPINS AND ROAMING WILD FEATURES
The success of Push Gaming slots is not just about their high-risk maths models, but also their clever features that drive the big wins. Here is a taste of what to expect:
Special Bullion Symbols – Bullions can land anywhere on reels 1 to 5, displaying a value of 1x, 2x, 3x, 5x, 10x, 25x, 50x or 100x. To unlock the win a silver safe needs to land on reel 6 at the same time. The bullion can combine with any multiplier that lands on reels 1 to 5 at the same time.
Red Car – A Red Car feature randomly adds Fat Bankers, Silver Safes, Wild Money Bags (with multipliers), Multiplier Symbols or Bullions to the reels to trigger more wins.
Gold Cars – During Gold Car features, at least one Bullion or Multiplier is added to the reels. It Gold Car is activated in the free spins round then random Wild Money Bags or Money Bag Multipliers are added to the reels.
Fortune Link – Fortune Links are triggered if a Silver Safe lands on reel six in a blue-outlined hot spot. Now 2 free spins are triggered with ONLY Bullions, Multipliers and blanks in play. As long as bullions and multipliers land the round continues, but if the reels fill up with symbols or the spins run out then the round ends. At that point, all the bullions and multipliers are combined for one big payout!
Free Spins – this is the feature that players will be aiming for in the Fat Banker game. It’s triggered by landing a banker on reel 1 and a wild anywhere else. Your banker stays on the reels for the spins and moves to collect any wild money bags that land.
As the banker moves around and collects more money bags he grows in size up to a maximum of 5×5, earning extra spins as he goes.
Bonus Buy Feature – In Canada it will also be possible to buy your way into the bonus round by paying 150x your stake. That gets you 5 free spins with up to 5 Money Bag Wilds in play.
WILL FAT BANKER BE A HIT?
Here at The Casino Heat Canada we are massive fans of the Fat … series from Push Gaming. The site of one of those iconic symbols growing as it moves around the grid, earning you big cash drops as it goes, is a massive thrill to any slot player. Fat Banker looks like it will take the series to new levels with a bigger range of features and the potential for some very exciting win sequences in the free spins round.
The 25,000x top win potential implies some lucky players are going to get fat balances, though the high risk maths model also suggests this will be a tough game to crack with some tricky dry spells before any big wins.
Fat Banker is due to go live at real money casinos in Canada on 19th May 2022.
