Boom Brothers on Slot Review
Boom Brothers by NetEnt offers something sorely lacking in many a video slot: Thematic originality. Boom Brothers has such fleshed out characters and worlds, you’d swear it wasn’t made specifically for this slot. It somehow works too, like Overwatch having RPG-like characters in a first-person shooter kind of game. This mine-themed game is like a cartoony version of Minecraft.
Place your bet, push the Spin button, and let the reels randomly land on the different themed symbols until you get a winning combination. You have no control on how the reels will land by RNG or software-induced random chance. You can choose the number of active paylines to bet against (requiring you to win the same amount to break even and beyond).
You can also select the Betting Level (from 1-5 coins per line), the Coin Value of each coin you bet on per line (0.01 to 1 coin), or the Max Bet that allows you to spin the reel at the maximum wager. Autoplay, meanwhile, involves turning the reels for a set number of times without interruption. You can also win a Jackpot of 7,500 coins if you’re lucky.
Boom Brothers Bonus Rounds
Although there’s no Progressive Jackpot, the game comes complete with Free Spins, Multipliers, Autoplay, Scatters, Wilds, and a thematically consistent Bonus Game. Trigger 3 or more Free Spin symbols will activate the Free Spin round, which involves revealing random numbers that are added together, which are the total sum of Free Spins awarded to you.
During this round, your bet is tripled. The appearance of 3 Railtrack symbols on the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd reels initiates the Railtrack Feature that creates a track and allows 2 reels to be respun in case you got a bad deal. Once you complete the rail track, you then play the Bonus Game where you’ll get the opportunity to win even more money.
Pros and Cons
The game lacks a Progressive Jackpot that would’ve made it all the more exciting and rewarding. Then again, it has a standard but acceptable RTP of 96.4%, which means that you’re around that percentage likely to break even or profit from this game in light of its RNG and game design. Boom Brothers could be classed as one of an increasing number high variance slots being relased.
The 5-reel, 3-row, and 20-payline game oozes charm and personality with its mine-themed gameplay filled with well-designed miners, their multiple tools and gadgets serving as the symbols of Boom Brothers. The well-developed iconography of this video slots offering by NetEnt makes the gameplay even more compelling.
Most other slots are either licensed games using popular shows or franchises to sell themselves or have window dressing themes that barely even synergises with the reel-on-reel gameplay action. This game has appealing and interesting characters in a mining setting that could work well as a cartoon show or the concept of a platform game. The gameplay is also as well-developed as the Boom Brothers world with its many different bonuses and rules.
