Break Da Bank Again Slot Game
Break Da Bank was a rather old fashioned 3 reeler from Microgaming which proved popular in its day. Popular enough for an updated sequel in fact, which is why Microgaming decided to Break Da BankAgain in 2008.
This time the game featured a standard 5 x 3-reel format to give it something of an update.
The reels are populated with the kind of imagery you would imagine, so the high value symbols are a jewel, gold bars, stacks of cash, cheque-book and gold coins. The rest of the symbols arestandard 10 to A symbols.

Showing Its Age
At first glance, Break Da Bank Again is showing its age a little. There are games from 2008 which still retain a fresh appearance, but this particular slot is looking a little shop-worn. The gameoffers a maximum pay-out of 375,000, but we warned that this is a very high variance game. What that means is that you may have to endure long barren spells before you hit on a winningcombination.
Not a surprise when you consider there are only 9 winning pay-lines available here. When you do get a winning line, you will have the option to gamble. You can double your money by guessingwhether the next card turned will be red/black. If you are feeling even luckier you can x4 your winnings by guessing the suit.
Breaking the Bank
The wild symbol is the Break Da Bank Again logo. This can replace anything except a scatter, and it multiplies winning lines x5 in the base game, and by a generous 25 in the bonus rounds. Thosebonus rounds arrive when you get three or more safe symbols. Three scatters give 10 free spins, 4 will give 20 and 5 safes gives 25 free spins.
Every win is multiplied x5 during the free spin rounds. Every safe that appears during bonus rounds earns an extra free spin. This means that even if 3 more appeared on the reels it does notretrigger 10 free spins, but just gives an extra 3 free spins. As you can tell from all of the above, the free spin rounds are where the money is at. That is where – if you will excuse theobvious – you can ‘break da bank’.
The problem with this is that it takes a very, very long time for bonus rounds to appear, unless you get very lucky. Until you hit those scatters you will spend a long time fruitlessly spinningthose reels watching your bankroll decline. The dated appearance of this game and the uninspiring gameplay make it one whose time has probably come and gone.
While it is true that those bonus rounds can be hugely rewarding, they just don’t show up often enough. If you fancy trying a few spins and are lucky enough to hit a bonus round, then best adviceis to make a quick getaway, like a true bank robber! Otherwise, maybe it’s time to Close Da Bank!
