Crazy Tooth Studio premiered on the gambling scene in 2011 and ever since it has been committed to delivering ingenious gaming solutions. With a focus on the slots gaming genre, the company has produced many memorable titles spanning various themes.
Build The Bank™ tackles the theme of humanity’s ideas and visions about the not-so-distant future where our lives would be assisted by robots in many different ways. The 5/5 grid is the bank under construction, with the main protagonist, a robot standing by its side. This configuration delivers a total of 3,125 possible paylines. It is worth noting that the slot utilizes the Any Adjacent Pays system, meaning that winning combos of at least 3 adjacent symbols can be anywhere on the reels.
The stakes range of Build The Bank™ from 0.25 to 50.00 would appeal to casual players and high-rollers alike. The game is equipped with the trademarked Mega Pile Bonus Feature.
Build The Bank™ Theme, Graphics, and Sounds
Build The Bank™ takes place in a fictional busy city, where construction works seem to dominate the whole area. The slot belongs to the futuristic spectrum of games with cars flying in between skyscrapers. An amicable robot accompanies players and hovers on the left-hand side of the grid while assisting in the construction of the bank.
The grid is set against the backdrop of a city with multiple high-rise buildings. The robot itself may fall asleep if players stop spinning the reels or show thumbs-up once they hit a win. As far as the slot’s symbols are concerned, they comprise low-paying card symbols, as well as high-paying symbols, all related to the theme of construction and material well-being. Their futuristic design is both slick and engrossing.
The audio background is on point as well, perfectly blending in the ultra-modern environment and state-of-the-art technologies that are expected to enter all aspects of our lives.
Build The Bank™ Symbols and Payouts
We are now going to focus on the slots’ regular symbols and their associated payouts. As we already mentioned, players can place stakes ranging from 0.25 to 50.00. In the following lines, we discuss payouts based on a $1 wager.
For the low-value symbols, Build The Bank™ makes use of card royals – Jacks, Queens, Kings, and Aces. When players form winning combinations of 3, 4, and 5 identical cards, their payouts will amount to 0.08 times their stakes.
Going up the paytable hierarchy, players will come across a shovel, gold bars, a claw hammer, and a helmet, all paying at a rate of 0.12 times the wager for landing combos of 3, 4, and 5 matching symbols. Reel spinners should note that a full gameboard of helmet symbols delivers prizes of 375 times their bet.
The regular symbols described above appear only throughout the base game. As a whole, the base game of the slot is not equipped with any special features. Players should not be disappointed though, as the Mega Pile Bonus round is what brings substantial rewards.
Build The Bank™ Bonus Mechanics
The Scatter symbols of the slot make an appearance only during the base game. They come equipped with one of the following – Credit Awards, Multiplier Symbols, Special Awards, or a Respin Upgrade.
While the Respin Upgrade appears only during the base game, the other three – Credit Awards, Multiplier Symbols, and Special Awards are available during MEGA PILE™ Feature. There are a total of 5 Credit Awards symbols. As for the Multiplier Symbols, there are 4 of them and their multiplier values are respectively 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, and 10x. The Special Awards are represented by construction bolts which come in handy to create joints between the structural elements of the bank.
Players should also note that Build The Bank™ features the so-called Passive symbols in the form of hex nuts and screws, which do not deliver payouts. They appear only during the MEGA PILE™ with Respin Upgrade and serve to bring an end to the respin rounds (when players spin the reels for three consecutive rounds containing no Active symbols).
Build The Bank™ comes with two forms of the Mega Pile Bonus round – MEGA PILE™ Feature and MEGA PILE™ with Respin Upgrade. Both features transform the playing grid into a 5-reel x 7-row configuration. The first feature, MEGA PILE™ Feature, is activated once players land 3 Scatter symbols that lack the Respins Upgrade and it is active for 3 rounds. The second feature, MEGA PILE™ with Respin Upgrade is triggered also by 3 Scatters, with at least one of them being with a Respin Upgrade. Thus, the MEGA PILE™ with Respin Upgrade continues until players spin three consecutive rounds containing only Passive symbols.
During the MEGA PILE™ Feature, three Bank prizes are available – Mini, Midi, and Max. The first one is awarded when the bottom three rows of the playing grid are filled with Credit Awards and Multiplier Symbols. The Midi award becomes available when the same symbols cover the bottom four rows, and the Max award is given when they occupy the bottom five rows.
Build The Bank™ stands out from the usual slot games thanks to its innovative Mega Pile Bonus round, Respin Feature, and Bank Prizes bringing all the substantial winnings to construction-minded reel spinners. Being a Crazy Tooth Studio production, the gameplay features a distinctiveness that must be seen personally to be fully appreciated. Playable on any device this game has solid entertainment and win potential.
