Fat Banker slot REVIEW
Fat Banker ReviewIt’s not only the banker who’s getting fattened up in this money-themed installment, as the grid itself has grown to 6x6 instead of the usual 5x5 setup. This means that the growing bonus round symbol, that’s now back to being a wild again after the mystery reveal deviation in Fat Drac, can grow larger than usual. The Banker Wild can also accumulate a multiplier to further boost payouts.
The outside street setting in the base game is a bit strange in some ways, but it’s not something you care too much about either. There are plenty of distractions in the form of different features, and the Bullion prize collection/multiplier system can spike to solid amounts in the base game. The Fortune Link feature feels a tad unnecessary perhaps, and it doesn’t deliver much most of the time. Push Gaming is definitely back on track with their Fat series though, as this is a very solid installment.

Fat Banker Slot Features
The premium symbols pay between 10 and 20 x your stake for 6 of a kind wins, and the Fat Banker Wild pays 40x your stake for the same. He’s not in play until the bonus round hits though, but you got a regular Money Bag Wild that steps in for pay symbols to help complete wins. It pays 40x for 6-oak as well, and it can sometimes land with a multiplier value of x2, x3 or x5 attached. Wilds can appear on all reels but reel 1 in the base game.
Bullion symbols come with values of 1x to 100x, and they can appear on all reels except reel 6 in the base game. Landing a safe on reel 6 at the same time means all bullion symbols are collected, and you can also land multiplier symbols to boost the total collected bullion win. The possible multiplier values are x2, x3, x5, x10 and x100.
The Red Car feature can trigger at random times, but only if Safe, Fat Banker, Wilds or Bullion symbols are in view. If the feature is activated, you may get a Safe, Fat Banker, Wild, Multiplier Wild, Multiplier symbol or Bullion symbol added. This can help create a win, or trigger a feature. The Gold Car feature triggers only during the Bonus Round or Fortune Link features, adding Bullion and/or Multiplier symbols in the latter, or enough Wilds and/or Multiplier Wilds in the bonus round to guarantee a level-up.
Landing a Safe symbol in a Hot Spot position (blue frame), while Bullion symbols are also in view, triggers the Fortune Link feature. You start with 2 spins, and only blanks, bullion and/or multiplier symbols will land. The spin tally resets for each non-blank symbol you land, and bullion prizes are summed up while being multiplied by multiplier symbols. The feature ends when you run out of spins or fill the grid, and the total win is then paid out.
Fat Banker Slot - Fat Banker Bonus Round
The Fat Banker Bonus Round comes about when you land the Fat Banker on reel 1, while also landing at least 1 Wild anywhere. This gives you 5 free spins, and the Fat Banker will chase and collect all wilds that land during the bonus round. This is how the Fat Banker grows even larger, and it works as follows:
Collect 5 Money Bag Wilds to increase the Fat Banker size to 2x2, which also awards +3 free spins.
Collect 4 Money Bag Wilds to increase the Fat Banker size to 3x3, which also awards +3 free spins.
Collect 4 Money Bag Wilds to increase the Fat Banker size to 4x4, which also awards +2 free spins.
Collect 3 Money Bag Wilds to increase the Fat Banker size to 5x5, which also awards +2 free spins.
Collect 3 Money Bag Wilds to increase the Fat Banker size to 6x6, which also awards +1 free spin. The Fat Banker now fills the grid completely.
When the Fat Banker collects money bag Wilds with a multiplier attached, this multiplier is then added to the Banker Wild for the duration of the feature. There is no upper limit as to how high the banker wild multiplier can grow.
The Bonus Buy Menu (not for UK players) comes with 3 options:
Pay 150x your stake for the Fat Banker Bonus Round triggered by up to 5 money bag wilds (RTP of 96.65 %).
Pay 600x your stake for the Fat Banker Bonus Round with 5 guaranteed money bag wilds to trigger the feature, where at least 1 wild comes with a multiplier (RTP of 96.64 %).
Pay 30x your stake to trigger the Fortune Link feature (RTP of 96.63 %).
The 200 Spins Fat Banker Slot Experience
The red car passed by in our base game part of the video, and then we buy the Fat Banker bonus around the 1-minute mark. We purchase the super version of the Fat Banker free spins feature right after. Finally, at the very end of the 5:52-minute highlights video, we buy the Fortune Link feature, and you can check it all out by hitting the play button below.
Fat Drac has been a huge success for Push Gaming, despite deviating a little from the Fat-series formula with the growing mystery symbol and the Bubble Prizes. Fat Banker goes back to the Fat Rabbit roots in that regard, while making everything bigger and bolder. A larger grid means a potentially larger Fat Wild, and maxing out the banker wild to size 6x6 means you’ll land 2,000x your stake per spin that follows.
That is, of course, without any multiplier attached, which is also a very welcome upgrade of the concept. The whole bullion collect/multiplier system is a typical Push Gaming extra, but the 30x price of the Fortune Link feature does not indicate massive average returns. As usual with this developer, massive spikes can come out of the blue in several different ways. The 25,000x potential is more than solid enough, even if it’s only half of what’s on offer in Fat Drac.
If you love Fat Banker Slot you should also try:
Fat Drac - is the highly popular vampire installment in Push Gaming’s iconic fat range, and it comes with bubble prizes up to 50,000x your stake. The growing Drac symbol is not wild in the bonus round, but rather a mystery symbol, and it grows by drinking blood goblets to potentially fill the screen.
Fat Rabbit - is the iconic original release from Push Gaming that started it all, and it’s still a popular and highly entertaining game to this day. You get sticky wild carrots from the angry farmer at random times, and the rabbit grows to potentially fill the screen by eating carrots during free spins. The max win is 2,000x your stake.
Iron Bank - is a highly popular bank heist slot from Relax Gaming (together with the CasinoGrounds streaming community), and you get 3 randomly triggered features in the base game. There are 3 unique bonus rounds as well, where you can win up to 49,998x your stake.
