Break da Bank Slot Review

- Video review
Break da Bank is very basic and classic slot game with 5 paylines, created by the popular game developer Microgaming. This is a very straightforward slot game, without a scatter, bonus game, multiplier, free spins or gamble feature, but it does have a wild, which comes in form of the Break da Bank Logo icon. Choose if you want to play this game for free or play with real money. Those who opt for the real option can win up to 2400 coins or a jackpot of 160 coins.
Symbols and soundtrack
As mentioned, this game only has three symbols, so it is easy to keep track on the winning combinations. You have the Break da Bank logo (wild), the dollar sign (highest payout) and three different versions of the BAR symbol. And the BAR symbol is something that we love to see in these back-to-basics games – it is almost like seeing an old friend.
The simplicity of this game might take some getting used to, especially for the younger players who weren’t active at the casinos back in the day when slot games was all about the BARs and the dollar signs, but once you get in the groove of Break da Bank you might find that it is a very charming game to play every now and then, as it offers an alternative to the more complex gaming experiences that are available all over the casinos online.
Classic sound effects
The sound is of course also just like on a retro slot machine, without any unnecessary extras. You have the spinning sound, the reel stop sound and the sound that a machine most often makes when there is a win to celebrate. In all honesty, what else do you need? We find that simple soundtracks often makes it easier to sort of zone out and tune in to a game, and this often happens when we play Break da Bank.
It has to be said that there are not many bonus features to look forward to in this game, and that is also the whole point about this charming, basic retro game. Play this game when you’re looking for exactly that, and play something else when you’re in the mood for buzzing beeping and shiny bonus features. All you have to look forward to here is big wins through simple combinations of symbols.
The Break Da Bank logo is the highest valued symbol, and if you get three of those on one of your active paylines, you are rewarded with 1600 – 2400 coins. This symbol is also wild, meaning that it can substitute for both the BAR and the dollar sign. One wild doubles the win, and two wilds doubles the win twice (x4).
Whenever we play Break da Bank we have been lucky with the wilds, and we hope that you have the same experience when you play. Just remember to keep an eye on your bet, especially since it goes all the way up to £250, meaning it can easily add up to a hefty sum if those wilds aren’t as frequent as one would wish them to be.
Pros and cons of the slot
This game is a gem for the old timers who want to remember the good old days. It is just like being back at the casino, only you can cash in from the comfort of your own living room sofa. It is also a choice for the high rollers, and if you are more interested in small bets, this game may not be for you. There is a place and a time for everything, so even if it may look like this game has a bunch of “cons”, they are just there to illustrate what the game does not offer. It doesn’t mean that we necessarily need to have those functions in order to be satisfied with the gaming experience.
