Boom Brothers Online Slot Review
Progressive Jackpot: No
This game from NetEnt has 5 reels, 3 rows, and 20 paylines. The backdrop depicts an underground setting that would be familiar to anyone who has ever stepped on a mining location. You will also see cogs turning above the reels on both sides of the screen.
And in keeping with the mining theme, the symbols are all mechanical-looking. On each reel, these symbols are chained together and with each spin, they appear to continually disappear into the bowels of the earth.
The game layout is traditional, with the control panel at the bottom of the screen. Gameplay begins with setting the bets using the Coin Value tabs on the right side of the control panel and the Level tabs on the left. The Spin button is in the middle of the control panel. Max Bet allows you to wager the maximum number of coins per line, and Autoplay gives you a chosen number of uninterrupted spins.
All symbols in this game are theme-related. The lower-value symbols include a pickaxe and hammer, a lantern, a bucket, and a miner’s helmet. The higher-value symbols are mechanical depictions of 3 miners who are the game’s main characters—the Boom Brothers.
There are also special symbols, which include the bomb underneath the word ‘wild’ serving as the Wild symbol. You will also see what looks like a metal sign saying ‘free spins’, which is the Scatter symbol. Another special symbol is a railtrack with the word ‘railtrack’ printed across it. This is the game’s Bonus symbol, and is definitely something you should look out for.
One thing that makes this game unique is the Second Chance feature. At any time during the base game, one of the Boom Brothers could suddenly come out and re-spin one of the reels. At other times a brother could come out and explode one symbol to replace it with another symbol. Although this feature isn’t a big win kind of bonus, it could still help you land some winning combinations.
One traditional bonus feature that players always look forward to is the Free Spins feature. In this game, you just need to land 3 of the Scatter symbols anywhere to activate the free spins bonus round. Activating this round reveals any number between 8 and 50, and that is the number of free spins you get.
A 3x multiplier is also activated for any winning combination you land during a free spin, and if you land another Scatter symbol, you get another free spin. The entire Free Spins feature is re-triggered if you manage to land 3 more Scatter symbols during one of your free spins.
Finally, there is the Railtrack feature, which is activated when you land 3 of the railtrack symbols on any active payline. For the first part of the mini game, you need to land track pieces on the 4th and 5th reels. For the second part of the game, you’ll see the Boom Brothers separated vertically on three different track pieces.
To win the bonus round, you’ll have to click one of three carts found at the bottom of the screen. This will reveal a gold bar, either a diamond or a ruby, and the number of places the brothers can move. The first brother to get to the end of the track wins the prize, which he then hands over to you.
