Game of the Week – Cash Bandits 3
If you loved Cash Bandits and Cash Bandits 2, we have good news. Cash Bandits 3 is now available for play at Australian online casinos. The popular Cash Bandits pokies franchise rolls on with the latest installment.
This game features a fun cops and robbers theme with massive prizes and an awesome bonus feature that can result in insane prizes. Continue reading to learn more about the game and how I hit my largest non-jackpot win since I’ve started writing Game of the Week.
The Cash Bandits are at it Again
Cash Bandits 3 is the latest in the Cash Bandits saga from Real Time Gaming. If you have never played Cash Bandits before, it is a 5-Reel 25-payline pokie that is based on the classic cops and robbers troupe. The difference is that you’re the robber.
For this game, you have a mix of high and low paying symbols such as money, loot bags, hostages, newspaper headlines, doughnuts, handcuffs, cop cars, crime scenes, and cops. The Cash Bandits are the wild for this game. The highest paying symbols and Cash Bandits pay on two or more symbols on a payline while others pay three or more on a payline.
The animation and the theme music reminds me a lot of The Incredibles with the police officer looking a lot like Frozone. This game has one primary bonus feature that can generate insane big wins.
Win Insane Prizes With Vault Feature
The Cash Bandits 3 symbol serves as the scatter for this game and when you land three or more on the board, you unlock the Vault Feature. At the start of this game, you will be presented with six vaults and a keypad. The number of scatters determines how many numbers you get to guess.
When you land three scatters, you will get 5 or 6 guesses. For four scatters, you get 7 selections and for five scatters you get 8 selections. Each time you guess a number that number will be entered into each vault. If the number matches a number in the combination, that number will pop up.
When you complete a password for a vault, that vault will open and award you both free spins and a multiplier. You can get up to 390 free spins and a multiplier of up to 23x. Also, during the free spins, if you land three or more scatters, you will get additional free spins.
I was able to trigger the vault feature relatively quickly and was able to unlock four vaults. I received 70 free games and a 9x multiplier. During the spins, I landed three scatters twice, giving me 80 free spins total.
During the free spins, I was insanely lucky and ended up racking up $1,031.60 in winnings. Playing at $1 a spin, that was 1,031x my initial bet. This was easily the biggest non-jackpot win I’ve hit while testing a game.
Did We Forget to Mention the Jackpots?
Cash Bandits 3 also features two progressive jackpots that can be triggered at random after any spin. The Minor jackpot is generally a few hundred bucks while the Major jackpot is a few thousand.
While not life-changing money, these jackpots will provide a nice boost to your bankroll. No, I didn’t hit the jackpot, but the Vault Feature win was like winning the Minor Jackpot twice.
Cash Bandits 3 Offers Insane Prizes But High Volatility
If you love the Cash Bandits franchise, then this pokie is going to be a winner. It is a fun game that can generate some huge prizes. However, I would be remiss in not warning you that this is a jackpot pokie, meaning it has very high volatility.
Cash Bandits 3 is available at Ozwin Casino and any online casino offering RTG pokies. It is definitely a game worth checking out for those that don’t mind bankroll variance.
