Bust the Bank
Bust the Bank from Microgaming
Like Avalon 2, another of the most recent additions here at Games Mania, Bust the Bank follows up on the success of one of Microgaming’s older titles by upping the ante when it comes to graphical quality and throwing in some great new gameplay options. Indeed, Bust the Bank is just like a thoroughly modernised version of Break the Bank, with new cartoon graphics that are of the highest quality. Another comparison between this game and Avalon 2 is that the number of winning combinations has been upped once more to 243 ways to win, so if you fancy fast paced action this game most definitely gets off to a great start!
A Trio of Board Based Action
There is absolutely no shortage of feature action on the game and three of the special bonuses are actually crammed into standard play on the main reels. First up is the Safe Bonus, which will require players to land a safe on either reel one or five. The safe will swing open and coins will pour out – coins that represent real returns. If the safe appears relatively high on the reels then you’ll bag an extra treat as the symbols below will also award extra cash, no matter what they happen to be.
Next up is the introduction of Larry and Bob, our resident safe crackers. They don’t even need to be successful in order to award a prize as they can randomly make their way across the board, leaving a cash prize behind for you to collect.
These three bonus games are rounded off with the Piggy Bank Bonus and it again relies on landing a certain symbol on the board. Indeed, it is the symbol of the same name and you’ll need to land it anywhere on reel three. A larger piggy bank will then take over the screen and you simply need to smash it by clicking on it in order to pick up an additional cash prize.
Bust the Bank Free Spins
Finally, we come to the main bonus feature on Bust the Bank and it’s pretty conventional in so much as it consists of free spins. Three or more of the scatter symbols on a single spin will trigger the bonus and you’ll receive eight free spins. While this might not sound like many, especially by Microgaming’s standards, the twist is that both reels one and five will be completely wild for the duration of the round. You’ll only need a single scatter to boost your total too, as every occurrence on the board is worth a single extra spin in its own right.
Bust the Bank successfully brings the original game bang up to date with more betting options and even more great features, all while retaining the safe cracking spirit that made the first game a hit. We’d definitely recommend giving it a go whether or not you’ve played the first game and you can do just that right now on this page with no deposit or download!
