Retro style, three reels, ten stops slotmachine with comic skin. Pocketbandit is modeled after the classic, mechanical fruitmachines of the early 20th centuries and emulates devices such as:
- Mills Novelty QT Chevron
- Mills Novelty Vestpocket
- Groetchen IMP trade simulator
- Pace Comet
- Liberty Bell
Unlike the slotmachines, it is modeled after, PocketBandit also includes elements of skilled and strategic play:
- Spin the reels at different speeds by pulling the knob at different speeds.
- Stop a reel at will by yanking the knob up.
- Wager zero to three coins per round.
- Use no-wager rounds to skip over bad luck streaks.
