Burglin’ Bob online slot is a revival from an old machine game. It is highly enjoyable to play and packed with bonus features to keep you spinning for nights as you try and crack the safe to obtain your loot. It is a 5-reel, 30-payline slot about the capers of a mischievous cat-burglar Bob and his faithful dog, who spends his time breaking into shops and cracking safes, making off with some really impressive loot, all the while avoiding getting caught by escaping through manhole covers. The slot offers great animations and graphics, along with a fun backing track.

Game Symbols

  • There are a total number of 7 main symbols used in this slot, with another three bonus features that will be discussed below. These symbols exclude the jackpot symbol that is worth a whopping 30000x the line bet for 5 on an active payline.
  • The normal low valued cards are the Queen, King and Ace.
  • Higher value symbols include a torch and keys, a padlock that is locked and Bob himself holding some sticks of dynamite.
  • The manhole cover, old-fashioned ringing alarm and safe symbol is instrumental in activating bonus features which we will discuss below.
  • Bob’s crazy looking Boxer dog acts as the Wild, substituting all other symbols bar the bonus symbols mentioned above to help you form winning combinations.

Bonus Features

Escape Bonus

This is triggered when you land three of the manhole covers anywhere on reels one, three and five. You will then need to choose from the icons displaying various amounts until you find three of a kind, which will be your loot. Should you be lucky enough to find three  Burglin Bob’s under a manhole cover you will trigger the Smash ‘n Grab bonus which will allow you to pillage four shops, grabbing whatever worthwhile prizes are available in each, as well as possibly the chance to add some further shops to the list!

Free Spins 

When you land the Free Spins symbol in any position on reels two, three and four, you will trigger the free spins bonus feature. Here you will be asked to choose one of these symbols which will reveal the number of free spins that you will be awarded. This tops out at a maximum of 60. While you are in this phase of the game, all your wins will multiply twice and it’s also possible to re-trigger them.

Safe Bonus

For immediate cash prizes, you need to land three or more safes on an active payline consecutively. Then pick one of those safes to reveal your loot.

Our Verdict

If you were a fan of the original game that used to be found in an actual physical casino, then this version won’t disappoint. It has some pretty good graphics and animation with some light-hearted comedy thrown in. As this is a high-volatility slot, the biggest drawcard is the payout action. Tip: When playing the bonus features rounds, make sure your paylines are completely maxed out, as this is the best way of triggering the Safe Bonus in the most advantageous position.
