Breaking Bad was one of the most successful TV series made in the last decade and arguably started the current phenomenon known as “binge watching”, so it would only make sense for it to have its own slot game.
The Breaking Bad slot machine was developed and created by IGT in conjunction with the AMC network. International Game Technology (IGT) has a long history of making slot games based on popular TV shows, web series and movies – so it comes as no surprise that they took on the task of bringing Breaking Bad slots to casinos across the United States.
The Breaking Bad slot machine is only available in one variation which has 5 reels and 30 paylines. It is a penny slot that allows players to wager up to 600 credits for a $6.00 max bet.
The Breaking Bad themed slot machine features symbols for the main characters (Jesse Pinkman, Walter White, Hank Schreider and Skyler White) along with elements from the periodic table. What makes these symbols different from the show is that they are silver (Ag), gold (Au), platinum (Pt), nickel (Ni) and copper (Cu) – rather than the chemical elements used in the show to cook methamphetamine.
There are also wild symbols, which feature an image of the infamous RV that was used by the main characters in the show by Walter and Jesse to cook meth. The final symbol are the bonus symbols, which use the Breaking Bad logo, barrels of cash and other symbols from the show.
The Breaking Bad slot machine has a total of 30 paylines. Wilds can land in any position, on any one of the 5 reels and will substitute for any other symbol on a winning payline. There are no multipliers in the base game. The bonus symbol can also land on any reel/payline, but you will need to get 3 of them to trigger bonus rounds.
Unfortunately, Breaking Bad slots can never be played in denominations higher than $0.01, so the largest bet you will be able to place is $6 per spin. There are also some machines available with a $3.75 max bet. As always, we recommended playing max bet at Breaking Bad slots, since it will allow you to trigger any of the special game features. Without betting the maximum amount of credits on a machine, you will not be able to land bonuses or free spins.
There are a total of 4 bonus rounds in the base game that range from free spins to unique features.
Minor-to-Wilds: This allows the player to collect Golden Moths, and if they collect 5 of these symbols, it will reward them with bonuses. This will trigger the Heisenberg Super Free Spins Bonus. In this free spins bonus, a player will spin the reels trying to unlock Walter White’s personalities for the chance to land a big win.
Free Spins Bonus: Free games featuring the Minor-to-Wild (from the base game) on every spin. This gives players the opportunity to collect additional “Golden Moths” which can trigger even more Heisenberg Super Free Spins.
Barrel Pick Bonus: This bonus allows players to pick symbols for the chance to get rewarded with credits and/or reveal more Golden Moths.
Better Call Saul Bonus: When triggered, this bonus allows players to spin Saul Goodman’s rolodex. The potential prizes include credits or index cards that have anywhere from 2-5 Golden Moths.
The Breaking Bad slot game features a number of ways to win big – both in the base game and during bonus rounds. The biggest opportunity that a player has to win big is via the multi-level progressive (wherever it’s available). This is offered via the IGT progressive network, based on the location of the machine/casino.
Breaking Bad slot machines are generally not available to be played online. The only exception is in New Jersey, where you might be able to find the game at select regulated online casinos there. To play, you will need to physically be in the state of New Jersey and the online casino will need to have IGT slots available – and even then you may not be able to find Breaking Bad themed slots.
