Enthusiasts who have been active in the world of slots for a while are likely to have heard of Break Da Bank. It was widely popular in its heyday so it was only a matter of time before Microgaming followed up that success. Hence, Break Da Bank Again. Keeping true to the essence of Break Da Bank which initially spurred its success, Break DA Bank Again aims to improve the original by improving the graphics, expanding the pay-out potential and filling up with features and bonuses.
Brought to life through colourful representations of wealth, players can keep their eyes focused on the prize and endure the patient approach needed to really cash in on this high potential game.
A rich sight
Microgaming is known to create games with excellent visuals that capture the minds of players. When compared to other creations of Microgaming, Break Da Bank Again is not exactly impressive. Sure it has bright colours focusing on greens and gold, stylised card symbols and neatly designed symbols representing the end goal of the game, money, but it definitely lacks the panache of a Battlestar or a Jurassic Park. Still, it’s not unpleasant on the eye and should not take away from the overall enjoyment of the game.
Cheque the Reels: Wild Multipliers
The symbols of the royals, along with gold coins, gold bullion, a cheque, a stack of cash and a shiny sapphire play out on a 5 reel, three row, slot with 9 fixed pay lines. The symbol of the Break Da Bank logo is the wild symbol appearing on any reel and substitutes the other symbols, except the scatter, to complete winning combinations. The symbol of the vault acts as the scatter and when three or more scatters land anywhere on the reels, they trigger the free spins bonus round. The coin values range from 0.01 to 0.25 and, with a 90 coin bet limit, the bets range from a min of 0.01 to a max of 22.50.
Coining the max: Win up to 375,000 coins
While it is tough to hit, the max win can be reached during the free spins bonus where the 5x wins multipliers can be combined with the 25x multiplier attached to each wild during the bonus game. When enough multipliers and combined on a max bet the winnings can reach up to 370 000 coins.
Bonuses on the finance: Big potential on the Bonuses
The free spins bonus us triggered by landing enough scatters anywhere on the reels. 3 scatter symbols trigger 15 free spins, 4 scatter symbols trigger 20 free spins and 5 scatters increase 25 free spins. An additional free spin is added for every vault symbol landed during a free spins bonus game. All free spins are subject to a 5x multiplier. The wild symbol carries a 5x multiplier on any wins it contributes to during the base game and this multiplier is upped to 25x during the free spins game.
Additionally the game offers a Gamble mini game bonus after any winning spin. Players can double their winnings by correctly guessing the colour of a card and quadruple their winnings if they correctly guess the cards suit. This mode can be continued with successive guesses but a single wrong guess loses all the winnings of the spin.
With the initial success of the original Break Da Bank, this sequel is sure to attract some interest. The mild graphics and simple bonuses are may not be all that exciting however the high multipliers provide the potential for some big wins. Players with the patience and bankroll to survive a few hundred spins will probably be rewarded for their efforts in the end.
