Bust the Bank Slots

Bust-the-BankBust the Bank is a modern, gorgeous looking game, a slot machine that was created by Microgaming and which has many of the great features that they often include in their titles, along with graphics that are considerably better than you might be used to if you’ve played their slots in the past. While they have a lot of slot machines that are old and the graphics aren’t that great as a result, Bust the Bank is clearly one of the newer ones.

One of the newer titles to come out of Microgaming, it sports 5 reels and 243 paylines/ways to win. It also has multiple bonus games, a round with free spins with wild reels, scatter symbols and a regular wild. It sounds like a great game to play, and it has a $15,000 top prize.

Features of Bust the Bank

You get wild symbols, scatters, free spins, bonus games, so pretty much everything you could wish for. It’s going to be a wild ride, and luckily the features are just as good as the graphics.

First of all, we get the Bust the Bank Logo on the reels, the symbol acting as a wild and capable of replacing any regular symbol. Since the two bonus symbols and the scatter are not regular symbols, they don’t get to take advantage of the wild. The wild substitutes for another symbol only if its presence is in the right spot on the reels, otherwise it will not be of any use.

A black and round bomb, with a lit fuse and a skull painted on it, is what the image of the scatter symbol uses to represent it. This symbol can be useful in a couple of ways, the main one being through the guaranteed prizes that it offers when you get three to five of them in various positions on the reels. There are also free spins offered, but those don’t give you guaranteed prizes.

Free Games Feature

No matter how many scattered Bombs you get on the reels, the number of free spins remains the same, 8 of them being offered. You get two wild reels for the duration, the 1st and 5th ones, plus each appearance of a Bomb scatter adds one extra free spin to the feature.


Safe Bonus Game

The first of the two bonus symbols shows you an image with a Green Safe. Whenever you get one of these on either the first or the fifth reel, you will find that it will open up and it will award a prize. That particular prize is offered both for the safe symbol in question, and for the symbols that happen to be underneath it on the same reel.


The best possible situation is when you get the Safe at the same time on the 1st and 5th reels, and on the topmost position. If that happens, the prize is replicated to the four positions located underneath the safes, so you get 6 prizes in one go.

Piggy Bank Bonus Game

This particular symbol, with a Piggy Bank on it, lands on the 3rd reel when the bonus game gets started. You click on the symbol, and you get a Smashing Wild coin prize from it.

Betting options and jackpots

You can bet between 30 and 300 coins in this game, with 1 to 10 used for each payline. The denomination is $0.01 to $1, so you end up with line bets of up to $10, while the total reaches $300.

A 1,500x jackpot is going to turn into a 15,000 coins payout, which can mean up to $15,000.

Design and symbols

The clear winner in this game is the design. Microgaming did the best they could, and they insured that this is one of the better looking bank robbery themed slot machines out there (and there are a lot of them). There are no pesky playing cards here, only themed symbols of the highest quality, in a cartoon style that manages to make you smile once in a while.
