Break da Bank Again is a game that’s coming to us via Microgaming, and it’s both one of their more popular tiles, and one of the less attractive ones, which is a bit of a contradiction. The theme for it is related to a bank robbery, and this is the second title of theirs with this name, the Again part being the one that lets u know that it’s a sequel. The game doesn’t have too advanced features, relying on the regular 5 reels and using only 9 lines on them. We know that we can get a top prize of 1,500x without the wild contributing, or as much as 37,500x if it’s participating, especially during free spins. As for the features, you get the multipliers, wilds and free spins that I’ve already mentioned, along with scatters.
Bet wise, you have at the bottom a total of three options that you can use, which will cover the 1 to 9 lines first, with up to 10 coins for each one. The final option is to modify the value of the used coins, which will go up to $0.25. In the end, you can spend at most $2.50 for one line and up to $22.50 for all of them.
The bank robbery theme that Microgaming chose in this case is by no means original. It’s been used in other slot machines, both from them and from other developers, and in fact this is the second title to use it from this series, the first one lacking the Again part of the title. The impression is that it’s a very old game of theirs, as both the themed and non-themed symbols don’t look very good. The lower paying symbols have for you the poker cards, standard ones which come in various colors and which have things like shields or crowns on top of them. The rest of the symbols are not that much more attractive, and they have for you things like cheques, gold coins, cash, gold bars, gemstones and game logos. The design style is an older one, and it’s quite clear that it can’t compare in any way with a modern slot machine. The background image is an abstract purple, with gold and green being used in a number of other areas, like the logo or the symbols.
If you look at the features, you will find that they offer you only things that you expect to get from modern titles, but that they also improved them by taking them one step further. They weren’t shy about using big multipliers, which is the defining feature of this game. The list of features starts with the wild Logo symbol, the one that is obviously going to be helping you get paid a lot more. The way to use this symbol is to have it land on one of the active lines, in a position which allows it to be included in another winning combination, as a substitute for a missing symbol. Not only is the wild going to bring you wins that aren’t possible without, it will also use a multiplier of 5x on those prizes, so you get paid a lot more with its help. The scatter symbol is the one showing you the Vault Door. The game considers it a scatter, so you need to have it appear on any position on the reels, and a minimum of three times, before you can get its 15 to 25 free spins. There are 5x multipliers here as well, and they can be combined with those that are offered by the wild symbols, so together they can bring you payouts of up to 25x higher than those from the base game. With each new Vault Door that appears as you use free spins, you get one additional free round.
The big prize of the game is normally at just 1,500x in the base game, so up to 15,000 coins. It can be increased in several ways though, starting with the multiplier that is applied by the wild, which can take it to 75,000 coins in the base game. During free spins, this can be increased further, to 375,000 coins. The cash values range from $3,750 in the base game, to as much as $93,750 during free spins. We’re getting an average RTP of 95.43% from Break da Bank Again, which might not be a huge potential return, but it’s pretty good.
It’s going to be an exciting game to play thanks to its multipliers, which can make your wins a lot better. Its graphics are on the older side though, and its regular payouts are hardly impressive if the multipliers don’t help out.
