Money has never been more at the centre of a slot game than with Action Money. This EGT video slot game is all about banking, Wall Street and speculation. It goes straight to the point and focuses on the goal of every player: winning big!
Action Money is packed with cartoon-like graphics, bonus and extra rewards to keep you entertained for hours on end. And you might learn a thing or two about the biggest financing institution of the world along the way.
So put on your best suit and make sure to have your bank details ready, and let’s dive into the universe of Action Money.
This game is about big money, and everything screams along that line from the very first moment. The background is covered in towering skyscrapers and a lit-up cityscape.
Several other buildings of various styles are lined up along a coastline. The overall atmosphere is rather cold and dark, without any noticeable details present. The same can be said for the musical theme, which is limited to sound gimmicks played after each win.
In a nutshell, the theme of Action Money might be original but the realisation of the game is rather classic and devoid of interesting or beautiful features.
Action Money is played on five reels and a maximum of 20 paylines. You first obvious move will probably be to activate the number of paylines you wish to be on. In order to do so, use the tabs on either sides of the reels and activate 1, 5, 10, 15 or 20 paylines with a single click.
Repeat a similar operation to choose the number of coins to bet for your next spins: use the shortcuts at the bottom of the game screen to bet either 1, 2, 5, 10 or 20 coins per payline. The reels will start spinning immediately.
Another option is to use the orange Autoplay button on the left of the screen to let the game roll for as long as you like, with a constant wager. You can stop the spinning at any time by click that Autoplay button once more.
As usual with EGT games, you can gamble your latest wins in single spin mode by clicking the corresponding button. Guess correctly the colour of the hidden card to double you wager, while keeping in mind that the first mistake means bankruptcy!
Lastly, nothing the four growing scores at the top of the screen. Those are the indicators of the game’s progressive Jackpot, named Jackpot Cards. The jackpot is randomly triggered after a win. Once the game has started, you will be asked to flip over cards until you find three of the same suit. The corresponding progressive jackpot will then be all yours! A solid investment for sure.
Everything on Action Money’s paytable is related to the world of finance and banking. We start small, so to speak, with a stash of Dollar Bills, a Bag of money and a gold Credit Card. They are followed by the Bodyguard, an expensive-looking Limousine and a illustration of the Office: a tall, anonymous building.
All these symbols trigger cash rewards starting from three-of-a-kind combinations on an activated payline. The following two icons, however, are worth more and start with two-of-a-kind combos: the Secretary and the Banker.
There are three symbols left on the menu, and they bring their fair share of surprises and rewards to the table.
We begin with the Boss, a young man smoking a cigar in his office. He is the Wild card of Action Money, able to substitute for any of the other symbols described before. He is also the single most valuable icon, awarding a whopping x10,000 reward for a five-of-a-kind combination.
There are two scatters in play here. The first one is a signed Contract that triggers exponentially large rewards according to how many of them appear, regardless of alignment. It also triggers a Bonus Round named Bank Feature. Another way to trigger this Bonus Round is to obtain three Bank Scatters on the three last reels.
In Bank Feature, you must choose one of the five banks displayed to win a multiplier. Choose an envelope next to win a certain number of Free Spins, as well as an extra Wild for the duration of the free games (it can be either the Limousine, the Secretary or the Banker).
Action Money starts as an original game, but you might feel let down by the simple graphics and the not so loveable atmosphere. The Bonus game is certainly fun and rewarding, but its rules can be a little confusing and take a little getting used to.
