Crack the Safe with Break da Bank Again Respin
Almost every major casino in the world has a mighty vault containing bundles of cash worth hundreds of thousands or even millions. Those vaults are as secure as can be, with some being described as impossible to breach, and that makes the idea of winning everything they contain – or cracking them and running away with their contents illegally – something that has been explored for entertainment purposes in countless books and movies.
There have also been plenty of slots games exploring similar theme, and the Break da Bank series of games from Microgaming is one of the most popular. Now that series has a new addition with Break da Bank Again Respin, which has been developed exclusively for the company by Gameburger Studios.
A Brief History of Break da Bank
The first Break da Bank game had three reels and five pay lines, and was a fairly simple affair that was created to look like a traditional Vegas slot machine. The only symbols in the game were pink BAR’s (albeit in single, double-stacked and triple-stacked versions), a golden dollar sign and a Break da Bank wild which could pay a top prize of 2,400 coins.
Break da Bank Again was the first sequel to that original game, and had a much higher top prize. This follow-up was a five-reel game and the symbols were more closely tied to the theme, with stacks of gold bars, bundles of bank notes and even precious gems appearing on the reels. A gamble feature was offered after each win to give players a chance to parlay it into something even bigger, and this game also boasted a free spins feature which could award up to 25 free spins.
The next game in the series was called Break da Bank Again Megaspins. The format and symbols here were much the same as in the previous game, but this title had a Megaspins feature which allowed players to play four slots at the same time. The free spins feature could also be triggered on all four machines at the same time, giving up to 100 free spins to the player concerned.
Break da Bank Again Respin
The latest title is Break da Bank Again Respin. This is a five-reel game with nine pay lines, and it remains faithful to its predecessors whilst delivering an improved audio-visual experience and giving players a very useful Hyperspins feature.
The symbols on the reels include the playing card ranks of 10, J, Q, K and A, a stack of gold bars, a cheque for a million dollars, stacks of gold and silver coins, bundles of bank notes, a purple gemstone, a Break da Bank 5x symbol, which serves as a wild and also multiplies wins by five times, and a huge metal safe, which serves as a scatter.
Much of this will be familiar to anyone who has played earlier versions of the game, but the overhaul of the artwork gives the visual experience a much crisper feel, especially on today’s high-definition screens. The soundtrack in this game is reminiscent of the kind of theme you might hear in a movie about an expert safe-cracking team, and incidental sound effects are nicely incorporated to help build the tension and celebrate wins without skipping a beat.
After every spin, you can pay to respin any reel. The cost required to spin a reel depends on its potential value, and whilst you probably won’t want to use it every time you spin, it can be very handy when you are just one symbol away from a big win.
Get 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols on the reels and you will trigger a Free Spins round which will give you 15, 20 or 25 free spins, respectively. The wild symbol is generous enough in the base game, but here it pulls out all the stops and will multiply any win that it helps you to achieve by a massive 25x! You can also trigger more free spins, which should come in handy as you pursue wins worth up to 4,000 times your bet.
A Rewarding Journey
‘Staying true to the popular Break da Bank Again game released in 2008, Break da Bank Again Respin revitalises a highly successful slot by incorporating engaging mechanics with enhanced audiovisuals,’ said James Buchanan, who is Director of Global Operations at Microgaming. ‘The high-volatility action, coupled with the Hyperspins feature, ensures players can expect a rewarding journey in this classic gem.’
Over at Gameburger Studios, Creative Designer Matt Carvajal said: ‘Delivering high-volatility action with crisp visuals and sounds, Break da Bank Again Respin is packed with great features. We’ve created a game that stays true to the essence of the popular Break da Bank series, building upon it with some core mechanic additions. We are particularly proud of the Hyperspins feature and we can’t wait for players to experience the game.’
Break da Bank Again Respins can be played at Royal Panda Casino and other venues offering Microgaming titles.
