If you think this is just another ‘bank heist’ slot, you’re in for a surprise. No title from Microgaming can be classified as regular or ordinary – the gaming giants set the standards. Bust the Bank slot comes with 3 reels and 243 ways to win, so rest assured there will be plenty of chances for you to win big. Just sit back and join the heist.
The experts from Microgaming wanted to bring something fresh to the table, so they added some flair to the whole lets-rob-a-bank story. The underlining comic tone brings out the fun in this adrenaline-pumped hot pursuit. The design of the Bust the Bank slot is brilliant. The backdrop that looks like the inside of a vault rounds up the experience.
The special symbols feature the characters from the story. Meet Larry and Bob, two wannabe robbers who are trying to rob the bank. However, a couple of cops and a dog stand in their way. When triggered, some of these special symbols become animated, which is a nice touch.
Other symbols of lower value are represented by the bank, a police bulldog, a clockwork bomb, and a security cash van. There is also the Wild symbol, represented by the Bust the Bank's logo and it is stacked. It substitutes all other symbols save the bombs with a skull mark- the Scatter symbol, which activates the main feature in the game.
As in typical robberies, Bust the Bank involves lots of explosives, gadgets, and adrenaline. If three or more bombs explode, don’t worry, you just triggered the Bonus Free Spins. There are 8 initial free spins, but you can trigger new spins with more bombs.
Don’t think that’s all. There’s an extra Piggy symbol that appears only on the 3rd reel which triggers the Piggy Bank bonus round - a chance for you to smash the piggy bank and get some more coins. The number of coins within the piggy bank can range from a handful of coins to some big sums.
On the 1st or the 5th reel of the Bust the Bank slot, a new symbol will appear too. The Safe symbol opens the safe and, again, gives you some handy cash prizes. Your win will be multiplied as the coins cascade down the symbols below.
Another way to win some bonus cash is to get Larry and Bob. From time to time they will appear during the game, spilling extra cash for you.
