In terms of central theme, The Vault is based around a fictional character named Jewel. Jewel is a mysterious, masked burglar, on a mission to swipe valuables from the wealthy, and the player can tag along, and possibly win a bit of their own wealth. This central character is where Snowborn Games have gone above and beyond, with a clearly very talented artist spending a great deal of time on bringing Jewel to life. Dressed from head to toe in black, and with face obscured by a reflective mask, Jewel almost seems to be the main character in noir heist film.
It seems that Jewel is on a mission to steal The Pink Dawn, the largest diamond on earth. However, doing so will require cracking The Vault, which is where the player steps in to offer a helping hand.
Looking beyond the visuals, The Vault features 5 reels and 20 paylines. The primary mechanics include stacked Wilds, respins, and free spins. The respins feature is perhaps the most innovative, granting the chance to win, and keep winning, as long as luck holds out.
If at least two bonus symbols land on the reels, they will lock in place, and a respin will automatically be taken. If another bonus symbol is added to the reels after the respin, yet another respin is taken. This process will repeat, until either no more Bonus symbols appear, or alternatively the Vault Bonus is triggered.
In order to take a shot at the biggest payouts, the player must land the The Vault Bonus, which grants 10 Free Spins, though with an impressive 3x multiplier attached to payouts. It doesn’t need explaining that The Vault Bonus is the ticket to the biggest payouts possible, with 5,000x the original bet being the highest. A win this big equate to helping Jewel grab the Pink Dawn, and sneak away into the night.
Snowborn Games seems to be on track to making their first official slot release something to be proud of. Though, it won’t be known for sure until the game goes live on desktop and mobile casinos on the 28th of April.
