Bust the Bank Gameplay and Symbols
Bust the Bank puts you in the middle of a bank robbery and the slot face is built on an iron clad safe. The slot design is remarkable and the 3D cartoon style icons really jump off the screen.
The main icons include two thieves, Larry and Bob, and two cops, an enraged male, and a female in a car. Lower paying symbols include a bank, armored car, alarm clock, and a police dog. The animations when you hit a win are slick and fun. Unlike many slot machines, Bust the Bank doesn’t use any numbers for symbols. All of the game symbols fit the overall theme.
The wild icon is the Bust the Bank title logo. It substitutes for any other symbol that you need to get a win, except a scatter or bonus.
The sounds in Bust the Bank are pretty good and the ambient sound track is filled with comedic stealth and intrigue. This really puts you in the middle of a clumsy bank robbery and makes you feel like at any moment you could get busted or get away with the cash.
Bust the Bank Bonus Features
Skull Bomb Scatter Free Spins Bonus: The scatter icon in Bust the Bank is a bomb with a skull and cross bones on it. If you’re lucky enough to get three or more bombs you’ll be awarded with eight free spins.
The scatter symbols also award a win based on how many you get. During the free spin round your trusty bank robbers will drop their bombs onto reels one and five, making them completely wild. This really increases your chances of hitting a big win during this round. If you hit a scatter icon again during the free spins you’ll earn one more free spin.
The Safe Bonus: If you get the safe you can win up to six prizes. You’ll win when the safe bonus icon lands on reels one or five. It also converts all of the other icons below it to the same random prize by opening and allowing the gold coins to waterfall down over the rest of that reel.
The Piggy Bank Smash Bonus: The piggy bank icon will award the piggy bank smash bonus if it hits on the third reel. When you hit this icon all you need to do is click on it to crack it open to be awarded with your win.
Larry and Bob Random Bonus: Every now and then our two favorite bank robbers get chased across the screen dropping their loot for you, awarding a random win.
Bust the Bank Conclusion
This is a fantastic slot with lots of good game play and opportunities to win. Although the bank-robbing theme has been done many times, Microgaming has come through with the goods on this slot machine.
The bonuses are generous and with 243 active lines on every spin you’ll find plenty of ways to win. Although the minimum bet is a bit higher, it means you’ll win whenever anything hits. You don’t have to worry about activating pay lines or missing out on a win by forgetting to activate a line. All in all, this slot is lots of fun to play.
