Burglin Bob, released in March 2014, is a thieving man-themed video slot from 2 BY 2 Gaming in conjunction with BBI interactive. Wolfheart (June 2016), Fire N’ Fortune (August 2017), and Legends of Africa (February 2016) are other animal-themed slot games from 2 BY 2 Gaming. Rival games include Claws v Paws from Playson, Cat Burglar (August 2018) from Games Lab, and Burglar from JBD.
Burglin Bob’s storyline is all about a daring thief blasting his way into a bank and raiding its safe boxes, the presence of a fierce guard dog and alarm notwithstanding. The special symbols lack regular payouts. One symbol (the Q) requires four or five combinations while six ordinary symbols require three, four, or five combinations.
Burglin Bob Game Characteristics
Burglin Bob has a 5X3 grid, as much as 60 free games, twelve symbols, three bonus rounds, between 5 and 20 automated games, a choice of ten chips per line, 30 fixed pay lines, a win multiplier, and accumulating bet multipliers. It pays between X5 and X30000.
The five special symbols are: a burglar pushing aside a “bonus” manhole cover; a red alarm bell that unlocks the free games; a burglar peeping through a lifted manhole cover; a green safe box containing gold bars; and a fierce “Wild” dog that also replaces the ordinary symbols.
The seven ordinary symbols: a burglar called Bob with a red dynamite in his mouth; a maroon A; a chained padlock; a yellow K; a flashlight; a purple Q; and a golden brown “Jack pot”.

Four and five Qs pay X20 and X50. The following are the Burglin Bob payouts for three, four, and five winning combinations. The burglar pays X40, X200, and X4000. The A pays X10, X40, and X200. The padlock pays X30, X100, and X1000. The K pays X5, X30, and X100. The flashlight pays X20, X50, and X400.
More than three alarm bells offer free games and extra free games that can amount to 60 free games. Winnings resulting from free games are multiplied by 2. The three bonus rounds, their triggers, and payouts are: three partially opened manhole covers unlock an “escape bonus” round whose maximum bet multiplier is X18; three manhole covers with a peeping Bob unlock the “smash ‘n grab” bonus round that, although nullifies the escape bonus winnings, offers X100 maximum bet multiplier; and more than three safe boxes unlock the “safe bonus” round whose maximum bet multiplier is X2000.
The Burglin Bob software is good, with all buttons along the bottom. The ambient instrumentals are good and the sound effects include a giggling burglar and blaring alarms. The animated 3D graphics are refreshingly creative, especially the blasted wall and marauding guard dog.
