The Boom Brothers Will Help You Find the Mother Lode!
Welcome to another fun instalment from NetEnt Gaming! The well-known gaming company has come up with yet another fresh idea for a theme, and they have packed it full of explosive fun. This 20 line, 5 reel, and 3 row slot is fairly standard in terms of design parameters, but the overall look and feel of it seems new. The artwork is amazing and the bonus round is great.
How to play
To play this game, there are only a few things that you will want to keep in mind. The first is the Wild symbol, which takes the place of all of the other symbols except, of course, for the free spins and bonus symbols. Getting 5 of these on the reels will yield 7.500 coins, making it one of the higher-paying Wilds around. There is also a free spins symbol that triggers the free spins round. Getting 3 or more of these will start the round and you will be pleasantly surprised to see that all of the winnings are multiplied by 3 for each free spin. Another fun symbol to be on the lookout for is the rail track symbol. Getting three of these multiplies your bet by 2, four of them landing on the reels at the same time multiplies the bet by 3, and getting five multiplies the bet by 4, plus activates the bonus game.
Another thing we really appreciated about this slot is the betting options that are available. You are allowed to control every aspect of the bet, which is great. You can decide on the number of paylines that you want to bet on, the level of the bet, and the coin value. The betting range per spin goes from 1 to 100, which is a fairly broad range, making this slot accessible to bettors of all different types.
Theme & Special Functions
Boom Brothers takes place under ground in a mine where several dwarves are looking to strike it rich. Seems to fit pretty well, since you are likely looking for the same thing as they are. The symbols and background of the slot are all really well thought out and the style behind the art is truly unique. This is one of the prettiest games we have seen in quite a while.
The rail track bonus game was a nice surprise when we saw it. It takes you away from the reels and into the mines with three of the dwarves. Each one sits in their own mining cart and tries to get to the other end of their track where a nice prize is awaiting them. The dwarf on top is trying to get to a diamond, the one in the middle is after a giant ruby, and the one on the bottom is looking for gold. As mining carts roll by the screen it is your job to choose them, and depending on the contents, you will send one of the dwarves a little closer to his goal. Once one of them makes it across, the reward is dished out, and it is a nice one.
If you like modern slots that come with their own style and remind you of the video games that are so popular these days, you are going to appreciate this NetEnt offering. We hope you have as much fun with this game as we had.
