Join a bungling cat burglar and try and make off with some swag in Burglin’ Bob, a 5 reel, 30 payline slot powered by 2 By 2 Gaming. This crime caper comes with pick me features that award up to 100 times your total bet as well as a bonus round that offers up to 60 free spins with all payouts doubled. Play from between 30p and £30 per spin.
The imagery in Burglin’ Bob has a light-hearted feel – joining the lower value playing cards are a range of objects associated with cat burglars. Look out for torches, padlocks and the dynamite chomping Burglin’ Bob himself. The most rewarding symbol is the Jackpot symbol – land 3, 4 or 5 of these in a single payline and you can look forward to a payout of 50, 400 or 30,000 times your line bet!
Joining the standard symbols is a guard dog which is the games wild, replacing everything apart from the bonus (manhole cover) and free spins (alarm bell). Land 3 of the safe symbol on consecutive reels on an active payline and you’ll trigger the Safe Bonus feature – just pick 1 of the safes and you’ll win a prize of up to 2,000 times your line bet.
3 manhole cover bonus symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 activate the pick me style Escape Bonus feature – keep picking until you find 3 of the same amount. You’ll then win that prize which can be up to 18 times your total stake.
If you find 3 of Burglin’ Bob making his escape via the manhole cover, then you’ll go forward to the Smash ‘N Grab Bonus feature. Here you have to choose from a selection of shops and break into them – prizes of up to 100 times your total stake are on offer in this round.
Burglin’ Bob also comes with a Free Spins feature which is triggered by landing the alarm bell on the middle 3 reels. You’ll then be asked to pick a symbol which will reveal the number of free spins awarded – this can be anything up to 60 free spins. All payouts during the feature are boosted by a 2x multiplier and doubled. It’s possible to re-trigger more free spins so hope to hear those alarm bells ringing!
Burglin’ Bob started life as a brick and mortar casino slot and the online version is a faithful translation – visually, it’s pretty good. The graphics are drawn 3D style and are nicely done. The backing track sounds a little out of place though. It’s the kind of thing we’d expect to hear in a fantasy style slot.
There’s a good range of features too, offering a little something for everyone. The pick is the free spins round where the doubling multiplier can quickly move things long. We found the variance to be in the medium range. Well designed and delivering a steady stream of action, Burglin’ Bob is an entertaining caper of a slot.
