Boom Brothers Slot Review
Boom Brothers is a 5 reel 20 payline video slot created by the impressive Net Entertainment. It has a mining theme and is based on 3 industrious dwarves (the Boom Brothers) who are armed with explosives – their aim is to find the riches hidden in the mines. Boom Brothers is NetEnt’s second platinum video slot (first was Gonzo’s Quest) and has a whole raft of animations and special effects. It’s appealing to all types of players as you can play from 20p to £50 a spin.
You will notice that the symbols are suspended on chains – they work like reels but look pretty good and difference. Look out for the Bomb symbol which is the wild – if you get 5 of these, you will trigger an impressive 7,500 coin jackpot.
One of the main features is the Free Spins Bonus feature which you can initiate by getting 3 or more Free Spins symbols. Each free spin symbol will then reveal a random number with them being added together – you can get between 8 and 50 free spins. There’s also a 3x multiplier applied to your winnings too! Look out for the free spins symbol during the feature as it will give you 1 extra free spin every time it appears.
The main attraction is the Railtrack Bonus feature– you can trigger this is you get 5 Railtrack symbols. If you get 3 symbols, your wins will be multiplied by 2. If you get 4 symbols, your wins will be multiplied by 3 and if you get 5 symbols, your wins will be multiplied by 4.
You are then taken to a separate screen where each of the Boom Brothers appear on their own track – the aim is to select a card which will then reveal either gold, a ruby or a diamond. If you reveal a diamond, the appropriate Boom Brother will move along the track to collect the diamond prize. Whichever track you cross first (5 steps) will reward you with that prize – a cash prize is guaranteed here. Ideally you want the diamond as it will give you the highest prize (a cool 1,900 times your stake).
Finally, there is a 2nd Chance feature where a random no-win spin will trigger one of four 2nd win chance features. Basically, one of the Boom Brothers will appear and change some of the symbols – this may give you a winning combination. Boom Brother is an exciting slot game which is medium variance meaning that it pays out semi-regularly with decent win amounts. Since its launch in December 2010, it’s become a real favourite. You can win a maximum 112,500 coins which is rather good!
