How to play
When playing Bust the Bank, there are some other symbols to watch out for, as they open up interesting parts of the game. You should be on the lookout for the Safe Bonus symbol, which lands on either reel 1 or 5, the Piggy Bank Bonus symbol that lands on reel 3, and, of course, Larry and Bob, who will pay you off for keeping your mouth shut about them. There is also the cherry bomb scatter symbol that can land anywhere on reels 3, 4, or 5 and which brings the Free Spins round, and finally, the Bust the Bank Wild symbol, which takes the place of every other symbol except for the scatter. Though this game is loaded with extras, they are all very easy to understand and pretty much happen on their own, without a lot of extra work or decision-making on the part of the player.
The betting options with this game are very simple. You bet anywhere from 30 coins to 300 on each spin, making this a no-brainer in terms of bet styles and strategies.
Theme & Special Functions
The theme of Bust the Bank is – you guessed it – bank robbers and cops. All of the symbols and bonus games are connected to the theme, and they look fantastic. The best symbols in the game, other than the Wilds, Bonus symbols, and Scatter symbols, are the cops and robbers. Getting 5 in a row of one of these can reward you anywhere from 500 to 3.000 coins. The lower tier of symbols is fun, too. Here you have a bank, an armoured truck, some dynamite, and a trusty police dog. Rewards from these go from 100 to 300 coins. All of these symbols work together to create a fun ambiance of cops and robbers that you are sure to enjoy.
A couple of things to keep in mind while playing this game is that the Free Spins feature and Piggy Bank Bonus have their own set of features. The Free Spins mode starts off with 8 free spins, and for every scatter symbol that shows up during these free spins an extra free spin is added. This is always nice because when you are lucky, you can get quite a few free spins to increase your chances of winning. Another nice thing about this mode is that reels 1 and 5 are Wild, further increasing your winning chances. As far as the Piggy Bank Bonus symbol goes, if it lands on reel 3, you have to click on it for it to reveal the money hidden inside. We never mind a little interactivity in our games, and this is a nice touch.
If you are one who loves brightly coloured, animated slots that focus on simplicity and fun, this is definitely a slot that you should give a try. Out of all of the slots that we have played, we really liked the style of this one, and hope that that it sticks around for years to come.
