Yggdrasil Gaming’s Brazil Bomba Slot Review

Brazil Bomba is a carnival themed slot from Yggdrasil Gaming that is played on a 6x8 grid. Playable from 10p to £50 a spin on all devices, this grid slot comes with Dropdown Wins which allows you to win again and again. There’s a Bomb symbol which explodes nearby symbols so you can form new wins – every dropdown increases the multiplier infinitely too. In the Free Spins feature, you can carry over the multiplier from the base game and each win increases the multiplier – it cannot reset to 1x.

Brazil Bomba Theme/Symbols

The Brazil Bomba slot, as mentioned above, has a carnival theme – set on Copacabana beach in Rio de Janeiro at night, you’ll see Sugarloaf Mountain in the backdrop as well as a feathered carnival dancer to the left of the reel set. With a tranquil feel, the soundtrack is particular good and should have you tapping your toes in no time.

With a 6x8 grid, you’ll see purple, yellow, red, blue, green and pink diamond shapes – 48 of any of them will reward you with 100 times your stake. There are also blue, green, purple, pink, yellow and red drum symbols with the latter paying 1,000 x stake for 48 in combination.

Being a cluster pays slot, winning combinations are formed by getting 6 or more matching symbols in a cluster formation (i.e. next to each other side by side or diagonally next to each other). To get 48 matching symbols, you’d have to fill the grid with the said symbol. If you look at the paytable, you’ll see the reward for each symbol – as there are so many symbols on the grid, it does feel like you’re scrolling a lot.

Dropdown Wins feature

When you get a winning cluster of 6 or more matching symbols, you’ll benefit from the Dropdown Wins feature – the winning symbols are removed from the grid allowing new symbols to fall into the vacated spaces. This gives you the chance to form new winning clusters – the dropdowns continue until no more new winning clusters are created.

Bomb feature

Then you have the Bomb feature – the Bomb symbol can appear in both the base game and Free Spins feature. It triggers o the first losing dropdown. The Bomb symbol explodes all reel positions in a star formation which clears up to 16 positions on the grid – this allows for new symbols to land which can give you winning clusters/combinations. The Bomb symbol doesn’t remove free spins or bombs symbols from the reels.

Multiplier feature

Finally, you have the Multiplier feature – this is played when you get a dropdown win or land the Bomb feature. A multiplier is then applied for the following dropdown/spin. Every subsequent dropdown win or Bomb feature adds 1 to the multiplier value – the multiplier resets when you don’t get a winning dropdown/combination. The multiplier can increase infinitely.

Free Spins feature

There’s also a free spins symbol – when 3 or more appear anywhere on the grid, you’ll activate the Free Spins feature:

  • 3 free spins symbols = 5 free spins
  • 4 free spins symbols = 10 free spins
  • 5 free spins symbols = 15 free spins
  • 6 free spins symbols = 20 free spins

The free spins scatter can also appear during the feature meaning you can win additional free spins – so up to 40 in total. Both the Bomb and Multiplier features are also in play during the free spins.

However, the multiplier value doesn’t reset to 1 after a non-winning free spin – it stays the same and can only increase. If you trigger the Free Spins feature with a 5x multiplier for example, that multiplier is carried through to the free spins. There’s no limit to how high the multiplier can go.

Brazil Bomba thoughts

The Brazil Bomba slot looks good and is Yggdrasil Gaming’s first grid slot – it’s a decent effort too. Medium to high variance, the RTP is decent at 96.3%. The most you can win on each spin/dropdown is 1,000 x stake – by filling the reels with highest value drum symbol.

The Multiplier feature is the key to winning big as it can increase indefinitely – the chances of winning bigger amounts increases in the Free Spins feature as you can begin with a higher multiplier and the multiplier value only increases (doesn’t reset to 1x when you get a losing spin).

That said, the most you can win is 8,975.6 x stake on each spin or free spin. Brazil Bomba has a hit frequency of 22.81% meaning that you’ll get a win or some sort quite frequently – you will need to be patient if you want to play the Free Spins feature though as the probability of getting 3 or more scatters is 1 in 259 spins.

Overall, Brazil Bomba is a colourful and entertaining slot which can offer decent payouts if the multipliers work their magic. Worth trying, Yggdrasil Gaming’s first attempted at a grid slot is a good one. If you like these, Blueprint Gaming’s Dragonfall is recommended as it offers 50,000 x stake payouts per spin.
