Most of us would have seen movies based on bank robberies. Some of these are intense action packed affairs. Some are comic with spoofs on stereotypes. In its vast portfolio Microgaming has an online pokie Bust the Bank that looks at the funnier side of bank heists. You can play it at Australian online casinos like Casino Mate, All Slots and Platinum Play.
Bust the Bank online pokie has the popular 243 ways to win structure. This makes it suitable for conservative online casino players and ensures nonstop action on the reels in the form of outrageous win animations. The bank symbol blows its roof away and spews gold coins. The petite policewoman struggles to control her car while taking shots at the robbers. The police dog lifts its hind leg on the fire hydrant and relieves itself. For the bigger payouts you need to land the robbers Larry and Bob in winning combinations. The other symbols include fat cop, armoured vehicle and dynamite. The game logo is the wild symbol.
Coupled with the humour are plenty of rewarding gaming features. When the safe lands on any position in reels 1 and 5, coins from the safe pour down and award the payouts of every symbol below. In the Piggy Bank Bonus a piggy bank can randomly appear in any position on reel 3 in any base game spin. You smash the piggy bank by clicking on it and collect the bonus inside. Larry and Bob are large hearted robbers. They can randomly appear on the screen and share their loot with you.
The bomb is the scatter symbol. When three or more appear anywhere on the reels you are awarded payouts multiplied by the total bet. The symbol also triggers the free spins bonus round. You will be awarded 8 free spins, which does not sound like much to begin with. But these are free spins with benefits. Reels 1 and 5 are held as wilds during the free spins. For every scatter symbol that appears during the free spins, one additional free spin is awarded. But the bonus features cannot be triggered during the free spins.
In Bust the Bank online pokie you can wager 10 coins per payline with a maximum coin size of AU$5. The total bet per spin is 30 times the line bet. This gives a maximum total bet of AU$1,500, which is much more than any high roller could want.
