Boom Brothers is a video slot, developed by NetEnt. It has 5 reels and 20 paylines, with bets starting at 1p per payline. These three amigos could be the key to bringing you some very special bonuses in the pick and click bonus game. There are also Wilds, Free Spins and even a randomly-activated second chance feature. Explore the underground with brilliant visuals in this light-hearted casino game.
Each of the three brothers has a different personality. We’ve got a sensible one, a curious one, and an overly-excitable one. In the intro to the game, we see the three of them deciding whether to blow up the mine. The excited one, obviously, grabs the lever and pulls it. Boom. Hence, Boom Brothers.
Prepare to go Underground
We’ve got 20 paylines here, but it’s up to you how many you want to play. You could opt for just one, the entire lot, or somewhere in between. Underneath reel 1 there are some arrows you can use to choose the number of paylines.
Once you’ve done that, cast your eyes over to beneath reel 4. This is where you can set the value of coins to bet against each payline. This varies between 1p and £1 per payline, so whatever you choose here will be multiplied by the number of paylines you’re playing.
To step things up another notch, you can ramp up the level of your bet. Under reel 2, the arrows take you between 1 and 5, which adds extra weight to your bet. Your payline x coin value bet will be once again multiplied by the number in this box, so make sure you are happy with the total bet before you start.
The total bet is displayed just below the big green spin button. When you’re all set, hit that.
Booming Marvellous Wins
You will recognise a likeness from the characters at the start to the symbols on the reels. Land three or more of the same symbols on an active payline to win.
The silver head shape is the most valuable, offering up to 500 times your coin bet for landing 5 on a payline.
A rusty orange head shape depicts that of the big-mouthed ginger fella, and the green one illustrates Mr Sensible. Both of these have equal value, offering up to 250 times your bet for landing five-of-a-kind on a payline.
The little figure with a massive moustache pays up to 125 times the coin bet.
Lower-value symbols in the game include the lantern and axes, equal in value of up to 100 times your bet. The bucket and helmet are also equal in value, paying out 75 times the coin bet for five-of-a-kind.
The Brothers’ Bonuses
The bomb symbol is Wild in the Boom Brothers slot, meaning it can substitute for all of the standard symbols in play. If you are lucky enough to land two or more Wilds on an active payline, you could be in for a payout of up to 7500 times your coin bet!
Free Spins symbols are easy to spot – it’s written on them.
Land three of them anywhere on the reels to trigger the free spins, during which your wins will be trebled.
If on a spin, there is no win, there is the chance that this random feature will be activated. There are four different second chance win features, one of which can be triggered on any non-winning spin.
In some instances, one of the brothers will come out and fiddle with a few things on the reels to help you make a win.
There are some pieces of rail track which hang amongst the reels. Land 3 of them and you will win double your bet back. Land four and you will win three times your stake. If you manage to land 5, you will win quadruple your bet and trigger the bonus game.
If you land two, you may be given a chance to try and land some more to work your way across the rest of the track and into the bonus game.
When triggered, you will be transported to some tracks, each of which has a different guy on, and each is associated with a different kind of prize.
Some carts will pull up at the bottom of the screen. Click on a cart to reveal the prize. Whichever prize appears, the corresponding brother’s cart will move along. The first to move five steps to the other side is the prize you will get.
An Explosive Experience
There are some great animations in the Boom Brothers slot, making it quite an immersive game. It’s almost as though we’re taking part in some kind of cartoon show. The background that the game is laid out on looks different, NetEnt have gone the extra mile to add extra layers to this game.
Light-hearted, fun and exciting, Boom Brothers has got a fabulous concoction of features and visuals to keep you entertained.
The RTP (Return to Player) value is 96.4%, and with a low variance, it is likely that you’ll see smaller rewards more often as opposed to one big payout.
For more NetEnt specific action, why not take a look at the fantastic Gonzo’s Quest, which is a firm favourite among many players.
