Even in the early days of settlement in Australia, bank robberies plagued the new frontier. In 1828 five robbers tunnelled through a sewer drain and entered the vault of the Bank of Australia in Sydney. They succeeded in stealing coins and promissory notes and fled. They were eventually captured but their exploits became legendary and many bandit wannabees tried to copy their technique and style.
Over the course of the following decades, Australian banks were robbed with varying degrees of success. Some Aussie bank robbers were crafty and others were simply lucky. One, Gregory David Roberts managed to walk out of the police station in broad daylight after his arrest. His luck eventually ran out and he ended up serving time back in Australia where he wrote a book and inspired a movie about his adventures.
Another famous Australian bank robber was nicknamed the “Post Card Bandit” because he sent postcards of himself to police Brenden Abbott pocketed about $5 million AUD – most of which is still hidden somewhere in the outback. Abbot used disguises, high-tech weapons and electronic gadgets in order to collect the loot and managed to stay on the lam for years before he was caught.
The hapless bank thieves in the Break da Bank Again online pokies don’t have Robert’s luck or Brenden’s gall, but they do manage to sock away significant sums of dosh and have plenty of fun at the same time. You can join them when you play the entertaining Aussie online pokies at the Australian online casino.
The new Break da Bank Again video pokies features five reels, 90 coins and 9 paylines. You don’t have to enable all of the paylines in order to compete, but wins are paid out only if they occur on activated paylines, so it’s worthwhile to activate as many lines as possible.
To play, open the game and click “Bet” for each payline that you want to activate. Click the Plus sign to increase your wager and the Minus sign to decrease your wager. As soon as you click “Spin,” the reels begin to spin, with each spin bringing you closer to the game’s maximum payouts. Every time you achieve three matching symbols on an enabled payline, with the first symbol on the left-most reel, you earn a payout. Game symbols include piles of banknotes, glimmering mounds of gold coins, a check waiting to be cashed and traditional pokies letters and numbers.
If a Break da Bank Again Logo emerges on an enabled payline, it substitutes for other symbols and completes combinations. Winning combinations that include a Logo symbol are multiplied by five.
The Break Da Bank Safe is the game’s Scatter. Two or more scatters, emerging anywhere on the reels, create a Scatter Symbol Combination. The Break da Bank Again Logo Wild doesn’t substitute for a Scatter symbol. It’s not necessary for the Scatter symbols to appear on an enabled payline in order for them to form a scatter combination. Scatter win payouts are determined by multiplying the pre-set scatter symbol combination payout times the number of coins that were bet on the spin in which the scatter combination occurred.
Whenever three scatter symbols occur concurrently on the reels, in any position (not necessarily on an enabled payline) they activate the Free Spins Game. The pokies awards you 25 free spins, with extra free spins presented if a Safe symbol appears on the reels (in any position; on an activated or unactivated payline). Each extra Safe symbol delivers one extra Free spin. Free Spins wins are multiplied by 25x your wager.
Free spins wins are added to regular game earnings. When you’ve completed your free spins you can click the “Back to Game” button to return to the regular game.
Every online pokies regular game win carries with it an extra feature – the chance to gamble. You can gamble up to five times but you aren’t obligated to take the gambling challenge. You can skip the gamble and continue to play the regular game, you can gamble once or twice, you can spread out your gambles or you can gamble five times, all at once.
Click “Gamble” after a regular game win to Gamble. Choose your gamble – “Suit” or “Colour.” To gamble on the colour of a concealed card, pick either red or black. If you guess the colour correctly you’ll double your existing wins.
To gamble on the suit of the concealed card, choose hearts, diamonds, clubs or spades. If you guess the suit correctly you’ll quadruple your existing wins.
