If you've ever played any of Betsoft Gaming's great 3D slots online - particularly the crime-themed ones like After Night Falls - you'll probably get a kick out of this effort from prolific slot developer Microgaming.
Burglin' Bob - a 5 reel, 30 pay-line slot - follows the exploits of a hapless safe-cracker on a night-time mission to steal cash.
The jackpot symbol on those five reel pays the (funnily enough) jackpot of 30,000x your line bet if you hit five across the reels. Elsewhere, there's Burglin' Bob himself - paying 4,000x the line bet for five symbols - and a sturdy padlock, plus a burglar's torch and Q, K and Ace symbols. Burglin' Bob's bulldog is the Wild icon and replaces every regular symbol on the reels other than the Bonus and Free Spins icons.
Free spins can be triggered by hitting three Free Spins Alarm Bell icons on reels 2, 3 and 4. You can win up to 60 free spins this way, and all wins are doubled.
Three or more Safe icons left to right triggers the - wait for it - Safe Bonus where a jackpot of 2,000x your line bet can be won. Here, you simply pick three Safes and collect your cash.
Finally, hit three Manhole Covers icons on reels 1, 3 and 5 and you'll trigger the Escape Bonus. Essentially it's a Match Bonus where you have to match three identical amounts to win. Hit three icons with Bob poking his head out of the manhole and you'll sneak into the Smash 'n' Grab bonus round. This is a bonus Pick 'em round - simply pick four shops from a possible eight and win cash.
There's no doubt Microgaming have made Burglin' Bob a fun slot to play: the animation and sound FX when you hit winning combos are fun and the reels move pretty smoothly. But, despite there being three bonus features, they are pretty hard to trigger, and I'd be happier with the Scatters being just that - triggering bonus rounds wherever they land on the five reels.
