Bust the Bank Pokie

Microgaming’s Bust the Bank is a bank heist themed video slot, and also one of the more successful titles. It has aged rather well, and contains a rather comical theme. Amongst some of the icons on those reels include a rather vicious looking guard dog, a furious copper, and your stereotypical black and white stripe clad criminals, doing a runner with the loot. Bust the Bank may be predictable, but it is fun to play.

A total of 5 reels and 243 ways to win are present in Bust the Bank, although you don’t be able to bet on all of those paylines individually. You’ll get coin sizes which range from 0.01 up to 1.00, and the ability to wager up to 10 of them per line, though. In total you are looking at wagers that range from 0.30 per spin, up to 300.00 per spin on this robbery themed slot.

Special features

Wild symbol: Bust the Bank’s wild is the game’s logo. It is a basic wild, substituting for all other symbols in the game, with the exception of the scatter, and two bonus icons which feature in the game.

Scatter icon: The scatter icon is a bomb. It is the best paying icon in the slot, and can also offer free spins, when 3 or more are located in any position on the reels, as well as scattered wins.

Free spins: The free spins bonus consists of 8 free games in Bust the Bank. Both the first and fifth reels are wild during the free spins bonus, and every additional scatter you find adds one more free spin to your tally. Bonus rounds cannot be triggered during the free spins game, though.

Safe bonus: Should a green bonus safe land on any position on the first or fifth reels during the base game, players will trigger the Safe Bonus. They can then click on the safe and win a cash prize.

Piggy Bank bonus: A piggy bank icon located in any position on the third reel will trigger the Piggy Bank Bonus. In the bonus round, simply click on the icon to smash it and receive a wild cash prize.

Larry and Bob: At any point in the game, Larry and Bob may appear on screen. These two criminals will offer you a share of their loot at random when they turn up.

Maximum win

Bust the Bank is a non-progressive jackpot slot. In order to win the maximum amount it can pay, players need to line up 5 of the fat burglar on a payline, or they can win with 5 scatters located anywhere on the reels. This will offer players a cash prize of 15,000 coins, if they are playing on the maximum wager.


Bust the Bank is your run-of-the-mill bank heist themed slot, but it has so many awesome special features that you are never very far away from your next big win. Throw in the fact that the slot is played with cheap stakes, and you’ve got a real hit.
