Breakout Bob Slot Review

Join a grizzled old con attempting a daring jailbreak in the Breakout Bob slot, a prison-themed game from Playtech. Played using a 4 reel, 6 payline game engine, look out for some top extras including the Bomb feature that awards 4-6 free spins with expanding multipliers that can send payouts rocketing by up to 25x. In the Free Games feature, you’ll play 12 or 18 free spins. Each scatter that lands is collected then returns to the reels on the final free spin as a wild. There’s also the Fortune Wheel feature where you could scoop a jackpot prize worth some 10,000 x your stake. Find out more in our Breakout Bob review.

Breakout Bob Slot RTP, Details & Wager Limits

The Breakout Bob slot is played using an unusual 4 reel, 4 row, 6 payline game engine. Land 3 or 4 matching symbols on a payline starting from reel 1 to form a winner.

You can join the action here at all bankroll levels, from microstakes to high roller. Stakes start at 5p per spin, rising to a maximum of £500 per spin. Use the + and – buttons next to the total bet tab to adjust. As usual for a Playtech slot, you’ll be able to run between 5 and 100 autospins or leave them running until you trigger the feature. There’s a turbo mode available too if you want to ramp up the pace.

The Breakout Bob RTP is 96.52% which is above the 96% average. I found the volatility in this prison break to be high so proceed with care. To compensate, the maximum win is 15,000 x your total stake.

Theme – Audio & Design Features – join Bob in prison

Breakout Bob slot base game

The design in the Breakout Bob slot is done cartoon style and works very well. The setting is a prison yard. With brick walls, barbed wire and a watchtower in the background, the animated old lag Bob watches over proceedings.

The imagery here isn’t the most sophisticated you’ll see but it fits the prison theme perfectly. The soundtrack is pretty generic but again, that’s no bad thing. Overall, the rather basic design in Breakout Bob is nicely judged.

On the reels are handcuffs, piles of cash, a bulldog and a copper who looks a bit like Bob Carolgees (minus Spit the Dog). Bob himself is the most rewarding symbol, paying 30 or 120 x your stake if you land 3 or 4 across a payline.

There’s also an explosion wild symbol which substitutes for all symbols except the scatter. Highly reward in its own right, 3 or 4 in combination will pay 60 or 600 x your total stake respectively.

The cartoon-style design here works very well if you’re using a smartphone to play. Likewise, the relatively straightforward features. The Breakout Bob mobile slot is a perfectly playable one and very easy to use.

Bonus Features in Breakout Bob

The setting and design in the Breakout Bob slot might be relatively simple but there’s plenty of potential action on offer from the range of features. There are 2 extras that award free spins as well as a third that offers a shot at landing a potential jackpot prize of 10,000 x your total stake.

Bomb feature

This Bomb feature can trigger at random on any base game spin. You’ll be awarded between 4 and 6 free spins. On each successive winless free spin, a multiplier increases from 2x to 3x, 5x, 10x, 15x or 25x.

The feature ends as soon as you land a winning combination, or you go through all of your allocated free spins without landing a winner. Bob will lob the bomb onto the reels and that’s the multiplier that’s applied to your win. The ideal situation here is to lose on your first few free spins but create a big winning combination on the final free spin which brings the big multipliers into play.

Free Games feature

Breakout Bob slot Free Games feature

The lit bomb is the game’s scatter symbol. Land 3 or 4 of these on the same spin and you’ll trigger the Free Games feature with 12 or 18 free spins respectively.

Any individual scatter that lands during these free spins is collected in a meter. On your final free spin, all the collected scatters are transformed into wilds and dropped onto random positions on the reels. Needless to say, a good haul of wilds here can quickly get the cashier moving.  Landing 3 or 4 scatters on the same spin results in a retrigger and 4 or 6 free spins added to your total.

Fortune Wheel feature

Breakout Bob slot Fortune Wheel feature

Like the Bomb feature, the Fortune Wheel feature can trigger at random on any spin. As its name suggests, you’ll get to spin a classic bonus wheel that’s made up of 16 segments. 12 of these segments are blank. If the pointer falls on one of these, you won’t win a bean.

There are 2 Minor Jackpot segments as well as 1 Major and 1 Grand Jackpot segments. Land the pointer in one of these segments and here’s what you can look forward to winning:

  • Minor Jackpot = 50 x total stake
  • Major Jackpot = 500 x total stake
  • Grand Jackpot = 10,000 x total stake

Breakout Bob Review Summary – surprisingly good from Playtech

At first glance, the Breakout Bob slot looks like a rather old-fashioned school slot. There’s certainly a retro feel to the rather basic design and the 4-reel game mechanic. Dig a little deeper though and you’ll discover some very decent extras here.

The Bomb feature is the key to the bigger wins, especially if you get a win with the 25x multiplier. With the free spins also being lucrative if you get a good haul of wilds on your final free spin, the Fortune Wheel feature is appealing due to the 10,000 x stake top prize on offer. Overall, this is a prison visit you we certainly didn’t mind making.

If you like the prison theme, the Hellcatraz slot by Relax Gaming is worth trying as it offers wins of up to 51,843 x stake. Another option is The Great Chicken Escape slot by Pragmatic Play which is tongue in cheek like Breakout Bob.
