Get ready for a big boom as you turn into a superhero to bust the bank robbers on the slot from Booming Games. The thieves hatched the perfect plan for their next heist but you will come to the rescue with random bomb wilds in the base game and a free spins round with a combination of random and multiplier wilds that can lead to wins of up to 1,200 times your bet on a single free spin.
Super Boom is a video slot with five reels in a 4-3-4-3-4 layout and 12 fixed pay lines. The bombs at the bottom of reel two and four will launch random stacked wilds. Wins are paid for three to five matching symbols on a line from left to right only. Your thief-busting tour on desktop, mobile or tablet starts at just 0.12 credits and can go up to 120 credits per spin. The game has high volatility and an RTP of 96.00%.
The skyline of a metropolis can be seen in the background of the game window with cartoon-style characters dominating the reels. The columns of the bank building are flanking the reel set while the robbers are about to execute their plan. A James Bond or Pink Panther-like soundtrack keeps things lively and moving at all times.
The pay symbols start at the low end with gold coins, cash bundles, money bag and gold bars, paying 1.25x to 2.5x your bet for a single five of a kind. They are followed by a safe, a girl, the bank robber and the superhero at the high level. Hit five on a line to win 5x to 8x your stake.
There is also a wild symbol, which can appear as simple all reels or as an x2 and x3 multiplier wild on reels one, three and five only and paying 10x your bet for a single standard 5OAK. All multiplier wilds in a winning combo will be multiplied by each other. The scatter is a newspaper with the wanted photo of the bank robber.
At first, the bank heist goes according to plan and the robbers will randomly set off bombs on reel two only or on reel two and four to create a stacked wild for the current spin. It will be removed after before the next spin starts.
Newspaper scatters appear fully stacked on reels one, three and five. You will need to land minimum five to trigger the free spins feature. The number of free spins is equal to the scatters in view on the triggering spin. For example, six scatters landing will award six free spins. The maximum is 12 free spins, which cannot be retriggered.
During the feature, the superhero will bust the robbers and randomly trigger the stacked wilds on reel two and four. They will also have an x2 multiplier attached. All multiplier wilds in a winning combo will be multiplied. The best case scenario would be x3 multipliers on reels one, three and five as well as x2 multipliers on reels two and four. Having all on a payline would lead to a 3x2x3x2x3 = 108 multiplier awarding a win of 1,080x your stake.
Having never been a big fan of Booming Games, mainly because of their usually rudimentary designs and mediocre win potential, we were actually pleasantly surprised when we played Super Boom for the first time. So much, that we actually decided to give it a full review. At last, we have seen something interesting coming from this provider that is fun to play and has good win potential. Who know, we might see us “forced” to do more reviews in the near future, if they start releasing other interesting slots.
