Break da Bank Pokie

Online Poker machines come and go, being popular for a while, and then largely forgotten by players, but Break Da Bank, from Microgaming, is one of those games that has had an enduring appeal for a number of years.

This is despite of, or maybe because of, it’s simplicity, as Break Da Bank has just 3 reels, a grand total of just 5 symbols and even a bet range with a high entry point to tempt players with, but many people like exactly this type of game as it lets them just sit back and spin the reels for those hoped-for rewards.

Looking at the game itself reveals this to be a traditionally styled pokie where the reels are confined to a corner of the screen, while the rest of it is taken up with a logo, paytable and various images related to the theme, in this case, lots of lovely cash. There’s no need to check out any other screens to see exactly what this game is all about, and that suits lots of people just fine, as all the required information is right in front of them at all times.

The colour scheme is all about greens and golds and in typical fashion, all the graphics are very plain, with an easy to follow layout that’s not going to challenge anyone.

Playing Break Da Bank

First things first, and players need to decide how much to wager and understand the paytable to see what they can expect to win with each combination of symbols.

Not a tricky one this, as the paylines run from left to right across 3 lines, with the other 2 being diagonals and the symbols are simply Bars and Dollar signs, with the number of coins won for each displayed next to them.

Simple + and – buttons are used to adjust the bet size, with the minimum being $1 which activates a single coin on a single line, so to ensure all winning combinations are hit, players need to stake $5 per spin. ‘’Wait a minute!’’ I hear readers shout, ‘’$5 minimum stake?’’ Yep, this isn’t a game for those with small bankrolls, it’s definitely aimed at serious gamblers and those who like to take risks. That’s just the minimum however, as Max Bet equals a substantial $125, so choose your bet size carefully or you could be in for a nasty shock.

A single Bar across an active payline equals a reward of 10 coins, the Double Bar is worth 40 coins, while the Triple Bar icon landing on a line will result in a win of 80 coins.

The Any Bar symbol means that lining up different types of Bars will still be worth doing, with a payout equal in value to the amount staked per spin, and in practice this is a very frequent occurrence, effectively being a free spin.

On to the Dollar symbol, and this is the highest paying regular icon, being worth a nice 160 coins should 3 of them land on a payline that has been activated.

There’s also the Break Da Bank logo wild symbol in play that can boost the number of winning spins by substituting for any other and thereby helping to complete winning lines. If a single wild symbol is all that’s needed to complete the line, the value of the subsequent payout is doubled, but if 2 wilds work together, completing a line is inevitable and the win is multiplied by 4 times.

Should a full line of wilds appear across the fifth payline that runs from bottom left to top right, then it’s happy days, as the maximum jackpot prize of 2400 coins has been won, although even getting a line of wilds on the first payline from top left to bottom right is still worth a very nice 1600 coins.

Break Da Bankroll?

This is generally a perfectly good Poker machine that’s nice and straightforward to play, without any complications along the way, but a huge number of players are excluded from it simply because the absolute minimum bet level is $1, and even that will only activate a single line, which is never a great idea, as most winning combinations will be missed.

If this was addressed, perhaps it would be even more successful than it is, but the very fact that it has been such a popular pokie for so long must mean that there are plenty of people willing to make bigger wagers.
