Funny Cops And Robbers Tales In Online Pokies

May 28, 2016

 

All online pokies give you a chance of winning. But some bring a smile on your lips while you are doing so. Two online pokies have taken up the theme of bank robbery with such a hilarious angle that they can give slapstick comedies a run for their money. This article briefly reviews those video pokies.

The online pokie from Microgaming is titled Bust the Bank. The architects of the robbery are Larry and Bob and they award the highest line payouts. Bust the Bank logo is the wild symbol. The thematic symbols are crafted in a comical manner and include fat cop, armoured vehicle, dynamite, bank, female cop and police dog. The win animations are even more hilarious. The female cop barely manages to control her car and the police dog heads for the nearest hydrant. The 243 ways to win structure ensures more frequent wins and therefore something is always happening on the reels. The action continues in the bonus features. In the Piggy Bank Bonus, a piggy bank can land on any position on the middle reel. You smash the piggy bank and take out your bonus. Larry and Bob are bank robbers with a big heart and will share their loot with you from time to time. The bomb symbol awards scatter payouts and triggers 8 free spins in which reels 1 and 5 are held as wilds. Additional free spins can be won.

Cops N’ Bandits is the bank robbery themed online pokie from Playtech. The introductory clip introduces the characters and narrates their tragi-comic story. Skinny Larry and Tiny George are chased by policeman Slim McThin after they rob the bank. Later they get identified from a line up because of George’s rubber duck. The win animations re-inforce the tale. The Wild logo is the wild symbol and it awards the highest line payout. The bonus game on the second screen recreates the line up part of the story. Six people are paraded in the line-up and you have to select the right one to win a cash amount. You keep making choices till you identify the culprit, but the payout is reduced with each choice. The police badge triggers the free spins feature. There is an interesting locked wilds mechanism in this feature. If the cop appears next to one of the bank robbers then the robber is locked in that position and becomes an additional wild symbol for the remainder of the free spins.
