We’ve seen quite a few online slots being turned into scratchcards. For example, Blueprint’s popular King Kong slot now has a scratchcard version in King Kong Cash. But it’s not often we see things going the other way.
But that's what happened with Big Banker, another Blueprint title that started out as a humble scratchcard and is now a 5 reel, 3 row slot with 10 paylines and some exciting bonus rounds.
All the trappings of the high life that helped make the scratchcard so popular are present in abundance on this luxurious slot. And with a betting range of between 0.10 up to 50.00 per line, or 1.00 to 500.00 per spin, it caters to players on all types of budgets.
The slot comes with only six regular paying symbols since there is no room for low pays in the world of the Big Banker. The paytable starts with a silver coin, then a champagne bottle, a golden watch, a cash stack, a diamond, and finally a safe. This is the highest paying symbol and only needs a combination of two to award a prize. Payouts for all the other symbols start with three of a kind.
The Big Banker slot has two feature symbols. There is, of course, a Wild which will stand in for all other symbols to help form wins. And the game’s logo acts as the Scatter, which will trigger the Big Banker bonus round. But be prepared, we’re not looking at the usual Free Spins here, and I’ll tell you all about it below.
Big Banker is all about the money, and players who are prepared to stake a bit more can take advantage of some extra bonus features. Using the optional Hi-Roller Feature, can pay 20, 30 or 50 for 5 spins.
For a stake of 20, players get a stacked Epic Wild covering the entire third reel. 30 buys an Epic Wild and one guaranteed Scatter on each spin. A stake of 50 will add more Epic Wilds and Scatters to the reels.
After every win, players can gamble it by spinning a wheel. If the arrow lands in a green section, the win is boosted. The player can then select the “Take Win” option, or spin the heel again for a chance at an even bigger prize. But if the arrow doesn’t hit green, the entire win is forfeit.
Three or more Big Banker logo Scatter symbols landing anywhere on the reels triggers the Big Banker bonus round. But there are no Free Spins involved; instead, the player is taken to a new screen with a selection of prizes lined up along the sides. These light up in random order, and the player has to decide to bank or reject the offer in the hope that the next one will be higher. The round only lasts ten seconds, and if the player misses their chance to make a choice, they walk away with nothing.
The Big Banker slot is a fast-paced game that can provide some nail-biting moments thanks to the very original bonuses and features. And you can play it today here at our online casino! Just remember the Big Banker operates a merchant bank, not a savings one, so never risk more money than you can afford to lose.
