Get ready for explosive action with Boom Brothers online slot, brought to you by leading software developer NetEnt. It’s a zany slot based on the gold rush and prospecting times of 19th century America. This well thought out game features some eccentric and peculiar dwarf characters that try to help you on your way to striking it rich. Unfortunately, Boom Brothers is not available to mobile users.
How To Play Boom Brothers Slot
Familiarising yourself with the paytable is always a good starting point and you can do this by clicking or tapping on ‘Paytable’ beneath the leftmost reel. Here you’ll find information on all of the features and prize symbols and what they represent when combined on a winning payline. You can see all of the bet lines mapped out on a table, noting that all winning lines are paid for symbols in succession from left to right.
The wilds are denoted by a bomb and substitute for all other symbols apart from free spins and bonus icons. Not only do these increase your chances of winning, but get 5 in a row and you’ll net a tidy 7,500 coin payout. If you’re lucky enough to get 3 free spins icons in a row, then you’ll get 20 free spins and all winnings during the free spins round will be trebled with the 3x multiplier. The ‘2nd Chance’ feature comes into play on random losing spins and gives you an extra chance of making a winning combination. The Railtrack symbols act as a multiplier of your stake, but get 4 or more will initiate the bonus feature.
It may take a while to happen but it’s great fun when the Railtrack feature unlocks the bonus game. You’ll create a path across the reels for one of the Boom Brothers to navigate along in his truck to enter the game. Then you’ll then need to pick from three trucks which contain different hidden treasures; Gold, Ruby and Diamond. Each precious item will help a different character move across the reels as each of the dwarves are in a race to make it to the other side. Whichever one makes it first will set off an explosive that triggers a win counter to tot up your bonus prize.
Setting up the game takes a matter of seconds and is made easy with the use of sliders. Firstly, click the arrows or slide along to choose an amount of bet lines you wish to play. Then select the bet level, this multiplies your coin value by the number displayed. You will then need to set the coin value, remembering that the overall bet per spin is affected by the number of bet lines and bet level. For example; bet level 2 and 0.10 coin value will result in a 4.00 bet per spin (2 x 0.10 = 0.20 x 20 bet lines = 4.00). The ‘Max Bet’ button will automatically set the bet value to 5 and bet lines to 20 before initiating a spin but you must remember to first set the coin value before you bet, as the cost per spin will be 100 times the coin value displayed.
You can also customise various other settings to your personal preferences. The spanner icon in the bottom left allows you to turn on/off the intro screen, ambient sound and sound effects. There is an option to reduce the image quality which will improve game performance over weaker internet connections. Clicking the speaker symbol will mute all sounds and there is a slider to control the overall volume level. The question mark opens up a help menu with game rules and other supporting information. Finally, clicking on ‘Auto’ will open up the auto-spin menu. Here is where you set an amount of automatic spins you wish to play, with advanced settings to stop the feature when certain thresholds are reached.
Once you have everything set up, just hit the spin button to spin once or select Autoplay if you don’t want to click each time.
Boom Brothers Slot Tips
Boom Brothers is a fairly popular slot and can be played at a number of leading NetEnt Casinos including Casumo and Secret Slots. It’s not featured in any welcome bonuses and is not as good as the likes of Bloodsuckers for playing through wagering requirements. This game is best if you’re looking for a good blend of entertainment and casino rewards. With the right stake settings and bankroll, you can enjoy a fairly long session when playing this slot, which offers comparatively medium wins against other online slots.
The bigger wins in this game come in various ways. Getting free spins is an obvious source as you’ll have 20 free shots at a prize which is trebled, leaving your betting bank unaffected in the meantime. Generally speaking, the wilds improve your chances of making a winning line but every now and then they will combine for wins of up to 7,500 coins. However, it’s the bonus round that is the most rewarding with the prize for a Diamond being as much as 1,900 times your stake.
Is Boom Brothers The Right Slot For You?
Boom Brothers video slot is a medium variance game that offers decent win amounts on an occasional basis. It’s the ideal middle of the road game if you’re looking for something that is in between big wins less often and smaller but more frequent wins. The RTP is 96.4% which is good for a video slot without being outstanding. This only gives the casino a house edge of 3.6% and allows you to play for sustained periods with good stake management and a suitable bankroll.
We had a blast playing this game and think it’s definitely worth checking out. Gameplay is largely uninterrupted unless it’s a notable win or bonus round, so you can keep on spinning until something exciting happens. When two free spins icons or Railtrack features spin in, the tempo of the game changes and the reels accelerate to really ramp up the excitement.
The animations and characters of Boom Brothers are comical to say the least. They really do add a fun vibe to what is a thoroughly entertaining slot game.
