You’ve always known you can trust River Belle to bring you news of the best pokies, and that’s just what we’re doing now. First there was Break da Bank, then there was Break da Bank Again, and now there’s Break da Bank Again Respin! What is it about this classic pokies game that keeps us coming back for more, so much so that Microgaming rolls out new variations like this?
The basic premise that you’re working to execute a successful bank heist probably has a lot to do with it. After all, when you’re spinning the reels you’re hoping to get rich as quickly as you would while robbing a bank – the difference is that playing the pokies game is completely legal. And a lot less effort, obviously.
A New Take on Classic Design
Break da Bank Again Respin features 9 paylines spread across 5 reels and 3 rows just as Break da Bank Again did, and the graphics are very similar. The new spin on the game – the respin, if you will – has images that are a little more high-definition, and a few different symbols.
Lower-value icons on the reels are still represented by playing cards. Higher-value symbols include a glittering tanzanite jewel, cheques, stacks of coins, wads of cash, and gold bars. Exciting sound effects and animations will engage you more in the Break da Bank Again Respin action as they did in Break da Bank Again, with a more modern and polished finish.
Essentially, the players who loved the first two games are going to enjoy the third instalment in the series just as much. As you’ve grown up and become a more sophisticated pokies enthusiast, Break da Bank has evolved too. Who said you can’t teach an old gambler new tricks?
A Magic Collaboration
Speaking of new tricks, Break da Bank Again Respin is part of Microgaming’s initiative to partner with fledgling developers and release new content. This symbiotic situation gives the older company a chance to deliver fresh gaming innovations, and allows start-ups to benefit from the experience, expertise and resources that Microgaming has accumulated.
Plenty of original titles have already been released with Microgaming’s mentoring project, and sequels also seem to be popular. Agent Jane Blonde Returns, created with Fortunium, is a perfect example of this – the feisty female spy from the original Agent Jane Blonde is back, with a slicker look and lot more features.
In the case of Break da Bank Again Respin, Microgaming is working with Gameburger Studios. This is the very first game the new developer has ever released, and what a way to start! Seeing what this dynamic team does next will be very interesting, but for now let’s focus on the (also very interesting) details of the Respin version of Break da Bank Again.
The betting range in this pokies title is 0.09 to 36 coins per spin, with denominations of 0.01, 0.02, 0.05, 0.1, 0.2, 0.25 and 0.5 to choose from. The top jackpot is 4000x your total stake, and the theoretical Return to Player percentage in this very high-volatility game is up to 96.58%. Add a hit rate of 22.34% and you’re in for a wild ride.
To make gameplay even more exciting, Microgaming and Gameburger have added some fantastic special features. The Wild Symbol, able to replace all icons except the Scatter, takes the form of the game logo and adds a 5x multiplier to every win that it is a part of. The Scatter is the image of a safe, and will trigger 15, 20 or 25 Free Spins respectively when 3. 4 or 5 are seen anywhere on the reels at the same time.
Within the Bonus Round more Free Spins can be activated; you’ll get 1, 2, 15, 20 or 25 additional spins when you land another 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 Scatters at once. Wilds also add a 25x multiplier to any win that they help complete during the Bonus. Rewarding enough for you yet? No? Don’t worry, we haven’t even told you about the best part – the trilling Respin feature.
Respins to Level Up Your Wins
The Respin feature allows you to pay to respin as many of the reels as you’d like at the end of each round, while the reels that you don’t choose stay still. If you are close on a win, you can opt to do this and see if the new spin creates the right pattern.
We saw the Paid Respins, or Hyperspins game mechanic work very well in Microgaming’s Book of Oz pokies, and we expect it to do just as well here. After all, tinkering with the reels will give you the feeling of being a safecracker, which is very close to the spirit of this game!
