Relax Gaming’s New Iron Bank Pokie Goes Live

Elouise Spencer - 10 November 2020

Not long ago Relax Gaming officially collaborated with CasinoGrounds, with the two organisations committing to creating the world’s first community led pokie. The idea was that the companies would give the iGaming world exactly what it was looking for, simply by using community feedback to guide the title’s design. Now, the fruits of the collaboration are here; Iron Bank.

At first glance, it is easy to see that Iron Bank has had an enormous amount of effort poured into it, with an extremely diverse range of gameplay, an eye-catching central character, and incredible payout potential.

The theme is that a criminal mastermind, referred to as Jaguar, is attempting to crack the notorious Iron Vault. But how he goes about doing so is up to the player, with his heist plan dictated via in-game choices.

Incredible Variety

In more detail, Iron Bank features 6 reels, 4 rows, 4,096 Ways to Win, and high volatility. The Jaguar character appears exactly as his name suggests. as a muscle bound, cigar smoking animal that clearly doesn’t take any nonsense. All in all, the pokie’s art style, animations and general visual design are extremely impressive. Jaguar animates beautifully, and a slick, cinematic interface never stops being engaging.

In terms of gameplay, there are a few special features to take note of. The first is referred to simply as Mystery Symbols, which help to keep the base game interesting. The feature works as follows; at any time the reels can be flooded with face down playing cards, which will take the place of any existing symbols. When revealed, the playing cards will all transform into the same high paying symbol, offering enormous payout potential.

Cracking The Vault

But what most players will be interested in, of course, is cracking the Iron Vault. Landing at least 3 Bonus symbols will grant Free Spins, but the specifics of the round being variable. Prior to the spins sequence occurring, the player is granted a choice; how will Jaguar crack the vault?

The Mystery Symbols option grants 9 spins, but with a random symbol chosen to be a Sticky Mystery Symbol. Expanding Wilds grants 10 Free Spins, but with any Wilds landing on reels 3 and 4 expanding to occupy the entire reel. Lastly, Multiplier Collect grants 12 spins, but with a multiplier gradually climbing as the sequence progresses.

Iron Bank is an excellent effort from Relax Gaming, with the CasinoGrounds influence clearly showing. All in all, it is a pokie that is almost certain to gather a firm fan base.
