Bar-X Safecracker Megaways Slot

The simplicity of the original Bar-X slot made it a firm favourite with many players in pubs and clubs around the country, and later in the best online casinos when it transitioned to the virtual world. Now Blueprint has given it a Megaways makeover, so has it become a force to be reckoned with in the new universe of Megaways slots?

About Bar-X Safecracker Megaways Slot

If you’ve enjoyed Blueprint’s previous Bar-X slots or Big Time Gaming’s now legendary Megaways slots like Bonanza or Extra Chilli, there’s a clear feeling of déjà vu when this game loads! The styling is very ‘Bar X’ – simple and retro like a pub fruity – whilst the reel layout is pure Megaways, with six main vertical reels augmented by a horizontal reel that can display four symbols sitting atop that. The set of paying symbols comprise six Royals, from 9 to A, whilst the famous Bar and X symbols are joined by a Lucky 7 and Diamond to deliver the bigger pays. Assisting the action is a Wild that can substitute for any of the previously mentioned symbols and, making sense of the Safecracker part of this slot’s title, a Safe symbol that functions as the game’s Bonus Scatter.

Like BTG’s breakthrough Megaways slot, Bonanza, the base game’s thrill lies in the dynamic nature of the six reels to display between two and seven symbols when stopped creating the opportunity for between 64 and 117,649 Ways to Win per spin. That is then boosted by a cascade mechanism, or ‘reaction’ as it’s described in the rules, that sees winning symbols replaced to create possible chain reactions of new wins. Everything that made that a winning combination with Bonanza is right here with Bar-X Safecracker Megaways too.

Bonus Features

Beyond its base game, it’s the Safe Scatters that can reel in the big bonus feature of free spins. The deal is four scatters in view opens the door to the free spins bonus. Picking one of the Scatters ‘cracks’ that Safe symbol open to reveal the number of spins you win. Should you land more than four Scatters in view, the surplus ones come laden with extra spins to be added to the tally stashed inside your chosen Safe. Putting extra paytable-punishing power into these free spins is the additional activation of a Win Multiplier feature in this bonus. This increases after every reaction that follows an initial spin, and can do so without limit creating mouth-watering possibilities of extremely big wins flowing from just a single free spin.

The Slot Professor’s Summary

Bar-X Safecracker Megaways is a cracking online casino machine like Bonanza Megaways before it. But then again, that’s hardly surprising since in truth it’s little more than a re-skin of Bonanza! Whilst I can’t really fault this slot for the gaming experience it delivers, I’m scratching my head as to why I’d choose to play it rather than Bonanza or Extra Chilli on which its underlying game is clearly based. I was hoping to find some interesting new twists to the Megaways experience here, but maybe Blueprint simply didn’t want to mess with a winning formula? Whatever the reason, Bar-X Safecracker Megaways is a bit of a curate’s egg for me. It’s got all the goodness of the best Megaways slots, but nothing truly original to make it stand out unless you feel a Bar-X theme has a uniquely lucky charm to it.
