Boomanji Pokie Review
Gameplay: Celebration never stops
Before looking at the control panel, one should pay attention to numbers from 1 to 10 in circles on both sides of the reels. They match the paylines from 1 to 10. Putting a mouse pointer on a number shows the way a line goes and it is something to note: paylines pay both ways, from left to right and from right to left. This means that payable symbols earn regardless the side they take on the line: be that at least 3 of a kind from left to right or vice versa, 3 of a kind from right to left, a gambler wins. A full payline, that is, 5 symbols of a kind, pays two times: from left to right and from right to left, thus doubling the win. The same does each 5-symbol winning combo on the reels, thus adding to a gambler’s cart. Having appreciated and remembered this, one may proceed to buttons.
To get started, you have to make only few steps. The value of coins is adjusted with the Choose Coin button within the range from $0.01 to $1.00. The Paylines button decides on paylines to bet on, from 1 to 10. This having done, you proceed to the Bet Per Line control to adjust the betting level that ranges from 1 to 10 coins, thus allowing a wager to stretch from a prudent $0.01 to an adventurous $100. The Spin button starts the firework and Max Bet Spin ignites it at the maximum bet, 100 coins on 10 lines in total. Done! Symbols on the reels disappear to be replaced with new ones that would shape winning combos. The more lines are engaged, the better your chances to score in a base round – you can earn up to $5000 at the maximum 100-coin wager.
Pokie symbols: Blow them up!
The symbols are different kinds of fireworks, and a win ignites the fuse and then BOOM goes. Winning fireworks go flaring in a spectacular true 3D with realistic crackling noise, and the win is paid out. The symbols are 7 types of fireworks differing in colors, shapes and payouts. There are Pink, Yellow, Green, Red, Purple, Blue and Red-Green-Blue or RGB fireworks. These pay when there are at least 3 of a kind on any active payline, from left to right or vice versa, it doesn’t matter – they pay both ways.
The paytable ranges from x3 to x250 at one coin per line and from x50 to x2500 at 10 coins per line. So the maximum win falling on a line in a base round would be $2500 but this is not actually the case. Lines pay both ways, so a complete 5-symbol combo pays out at double its normal value. So five RGB fireworks on an active line earn as much as $5000. This is a nice amount to add to your stash.
The design allows several winning lines in a single spin; therefore special rules apply, all to the benefit of a gambler. Firstly, coinciding wins (i.e. identical combos) on different paylines are added and paid all together, not a single coin is lost. Secondly, the highest win on a payline is paid. This rule means that if there is a winning combo stretching from left to right and another winning combo stretching from right to left (which might be the case with the central wild reel), then it pays the highest win possible. For example, there are 2 Purple fireworks from left to right, plus a wild reel, plus 2 Red fireworks. The purple fireworks plus the wild pay 100 coins, and Red fireworks plus the wild pay 80, so the highest win, 100 coins, goes to Aussie’s balance. The chances to score it explosively huge are further improved by the Exploding Wild feature.
All fireworks collected and ignited together mean a big boom. In Boomanji they mean a big win. A crate filled with fireworks is a wild symbol for all other types of fireworks on the reels, no exceptions. A wild may appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 (one, two or three Wilds at once) and then it explodes into an entire Wild Reel. Wins are recalculated and paid, and a free re-spin with a Wild reel is granted. If a Wild symbol is earned during a free re-spin mode, another re-spin is awarded with a Wild reel. Due to this Exploding Wild feature, an Aussie may score wins on numerous paylines in a single spin and get the most of them.
Bottom line on Boomanji
Boomanji is an explosive and spectacular 5-reel 10-payline video slot launched by Betsoft. It features the extreme of true 3D graphics, dynamic and entertaining gameplay and hypnotizing sound effects. The pokie gives you a fair chance of winning up to $5000 in a single spin at the max bet of $100. Paylines earn both ways, from left to right and from right to left, a rule to appreciate. The Expanding Wild feature with a free re-spin may turn up to 3 central reels into wild reels and earn it huge. Sure, it is a pokie an Aussie would not like to miss.
