Bust the Mansion Bonus Features

A total of two Wild symbols can be found in Bust the Mansion. For five Wilds on a payline, you can win 400x your stake. Additionally, they can be substituted for all standard symbols except the Scatter to increase your chances of winning. During the Bonus Round, there is also another Wild symbol called the Wild Money Vault.

During the base game or Free Spins feature, the Link & Win feature is activated by landing six Money Vault Wilds. As soon as these Free Spins have been activated, the triggering symbols will remain locked until the round is over. Once the spin counter reaches 3, more Money Vault Wilds will reset the counter back to 3.

Additionally, four Jackpot symbols can appear during this round, a Mini, a Minor, a Major, and a Mega jackpot. Depending on how many Jackpot symbols you win, you will receive fixed payouts of 20x, 50x, 200x, and 1000x your stake. You will win 5000x your stake if you fill all the reels with Money Vault symbols.


Despite the fact that you can still win a Jackpot of 5000x your stake in the Link and Hold game, you can still win up to 10000x your stake in the Game of Chance game, which also features 4 Jackpots. As far as evening work goes, that’s not too shabby at all.

The Switcheroo

The Switcheroo  In the 1980’s two crafty blackjack players managed to find a way to win that it’s as simple as it was effective. The players (John Dixon and Robert Ailse) would sit side by side and switch one or their cards in order to make the best possible hand. This of course alongside strategic staking ensured that defeating the house edge was a simple formality.

To decrease their chances of being found out, the pair also had others involved in the scam, standing in strategic positions in order to obscure others seeing the card swap take place. To this day, it’s not known how much money this scam earned the pair.

Dominic the Dominator

Dominic the Dominator  Dominic “The Dominator” LoRiggio had his own unique take on how to fleece casinos. It didn’t involve card counting or transmitters or teams. Instead it was all based on the roll of the dice. Many assumed he must have been using loaded dice, when in actual fact he relied on a technique called ‘dice control’.

Essentially Loriggio was so adept with dice that he was about to largely predict how they would roll based on how how to turned and handled them during the roll. His dice skills has earned him an millions as well as several dice related world records. He now teaches his technique to others rather than uses it in casinos himself. I doubt they’re sorry to see the back of him!

Ken Uston

Ken Uston  Ken Uston was a larger than life personality who would, prior to his death, appear on TV detailing all of his various schemes and exploits. As result he was certainly more high profiles than most in the same ‘line of work’.

So what was the claim to fame that led to this public interest? Well it was his reputation for starting one of the first blackjack ‘card counting’ teams. He is known to have won millions and but in part responsible for casinos tightening the rules around individuals who came overcome the house edge through one mechanism or another.

His success resulted in bans in various establishments. He went to court over a ban at Resorts International Hotel in Atlantic City. The court agreed because the ban was based on his skills as opposed to him cheating. They instead further tightened their rules as result of no longer being able to ban card counters.
