Burglin Bob Slots

Burglin-BobBurglin Bob is a Microgaming slot which gives you action that puts you in the middle of a bank robbery, the way many other games will do these days. Despite this being a Microgaming slot machine, offered on their Quickfire platform, it doesn’t have the most modern design, not like their more recent slot machines tend to offer.

The 5 reels of Burglin Bob give you 30 paylines, access to up to 60 free spins, multiple bonus games, scatter symbols and wilds. You can also expect a top prize of $30,000.

Features of Burglin Bob

The game has a little bit of everything to offer. You have wild symbols inside, there are scatters, you can trigger free spins with multipliers and bonus games with high prizes.

The Dog is the slot’s wild feature, the one that can replace other symbols if this gets you a new combination formed. Wilds will not substitute for the two scatter symbols, the ones that trigger free spins and bonus features. If they land where needed, they can replace any regular icon though.


Free Games Feature

The symbol with Free Spins is easy to recognize, as those two words are placed on the top and bottom sides of an alarm. Appearing on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th reels, the Alarm will trigger as many as 60 free spins. You need the scatter symbol which will do this on all three reels where it is allowed. All the wins you get from the free spins have 2x multipliers, so you can expect double the usual prizes from them.


Safe Bonus

The slot’s bonus game needs a Safe bonus symbol to appear, with 3+ icons in consecutive order and on one of the active lines. This triggers the bonus game, where you can win up to 2,000x in prizes.

Escape Bonus

Another symbol that triggers a bonus feature is the one that has the Manhole Cover and the word Bonus on top. This symbol is a scatter, and you need it to be present on the reels 1, 3 and 5 during the same round.


You have to click on various parts of the image, and you get images from them. Get three that match, and that amount is your prize, as much as 18 times the bet.

If you located three symbols with the Robber, then you trigger the bonus feature called Smash ‘n Grab. This might give you the new feature, but it also cancels the wins you got along the way in the Escape Bonus.

Smash ‘n Grab

Should this feature be triggered, you will be asked to pick four shops, and each one will give you a prize. The maximum possible prize will be worth 100x the value of the bet. You can also get additional picks, so you can break into three more shops and win additional prizes.


Betting options and jackpots

The slot’s bets use low value coins, the biggest ones reaching only $0.10. You can use up to 10 coins per line though, so at least you can take the line bet to $1. With 30 lines used at all times, the bets range from $0.30 to $30 per round.

As for the rewards, the paytable promises a payout of 30,000x, which would mean $30,000 cash in this case.

Design and symbols

While the design of Burglin Bob isn’t the most impressive thing I’ve ever seen, it is interesting enough whenever the relevant symbols are visible. The boring ones are obviously with playing cards on them, the way so many symbols are these days. You will see plenty of dynamite in the logo area, and its effects are visible in the brick wall placed behind the reels, which has a huge hole in it.


Symbols: Dog (wild), Manhole Cover (scatter), Alarm (scatter), Jackpot Logo (30,000x), Bob (4,000x), Lock (1,000x), Flashlight (400x), Ace (200x), King (100x) and Queen (50x).

Is It Worth Playing?

The features of the game and the top jackpot of 30,000x are its biggest advocates. I’m not as much of a fan when it comes to the design, but I figure the pros outweigh the cons in this case.

You will find Burglin Bob at any online casino which chooses to use software from Microgaming, playable either for free or for real money.
