The SafeCracker slots game can be found at Playtech casinos. Playtech do not publish the house edge of their games, however several established Playtech casinos have started releasing this information and on the CasinoMeister forum, the Boyle Casino Manager confirmed that Playtech slots games are not configurable at the operators end. As such, it is possible to identify that the house edge of SafeCracker is 6.09% if you play one or two coins and 4.09% if you play three coins and should be valid at all Playtech casinos.
Poster 'thelawnet' from the CasinoMeister and Wizard of Vegas message boards has looked at these figures and believes there to be an error. By their calculations given the seed level (6000 coins) and contribution rate (3%) the figures should be 6.09% for 1 and 2 coins and for 3 coins when the Jackpot has just been reset. On average across all values of Jackpot playing 3 coins should result in a house edge of 3.09%, however this value is entirely dependent on the size of the Jackpot. If you play when the Jackpot's recently been won the house edge is likely to be a lot higher and if you play when the Jackpot is larger than average it is possible that the house edge will be a lot less that 3.09%.
Break the safe open and get the loot without triggering the alarm.
SafeCracker had 3 reels, one payline and you can bet up to three coins on the payline.
There is no wild symbol when playing SafeCracker.
There are two bonus features when playing SafeCracker. The first bonus feature is activated when you receive 3 or more of the ‘Key’ symbol on the payline. When this happens you will be taken to a new screen showing a vault with 10 deposit boxes. Pick the deposit boxes one at a time to reveal prizes. 3 of the deposit boxes are alarmed and when you select one of them the bonus feature ends.
The second bonus feature is activated when you receive three of the ‘Cash’ symbol on the payline. When this happens you win the progressive jackpot.
An entertaining enough game with a nice jackpot if you like to chase big wins, however the house edge is higher than some other similar progressive games and you need to make sure you always play the full number of coins.
