Pillaging Through the Caribbean
The sneak peak video for Boom Pirates gave us a broad idea of the theme, but not much else. If you haven’t already worked it out, this is a pirate-themed slot featuring the lovely but fierce red headed Captain Mary who pillages her way through the Caribbean, taking any treasures that catches her eye. One lazy afternoon, her first mate spots an unprotected port and the crew snap into action, ready to loot the village for whatever they can find.
Being a Foxium and Microgaming production, Boom Pirates is kitted out with fantastic graphics, excellent animation sequences and realistic sound effects to bring forth the pirate and pillaging theme. The game has a backdrop of the tropical port with the ship moored on the dock to the left. During active play, the backdrop changes from day to night showing a natural progression of your playing status.
Symbols and Bonus Features
On the reels, you will find a host of pirate-themed images with Captain Mary being the most valuable of them all. After Mary, Ben the pirate first mate will pay out the second highest, followed by the obligatory parrot, a cannon and a barrel of gunpowder. Foxium has gone with the standards set of high card symbols for the lower paying amounts.
In terms of bonus features, there are plenty to look forward to. First, there is the fantastic Wonderways reel extender feature that we will explain later. Then there is the Buy a Feature that allows you to purchase a free spins round. You can also expect Scatters and the Foxify feature that increases your chances of extending the reels.
The Technical Details
Boom Pirates features a setup of 5 reels with 4 rows that can extend to 9 reels with 6 rows. During regular play the game offers 1024 Ways To Win while the Wonderways feature increases this to 10,077,696 Ways To Win.
The coin value can be toggled from 20 to 5000, with the default size being 200. The game only allows for 1 coin to be bet per spin, which means the maximum bet is 5000. The highest winning amount you can earn on a max bet is 4000x your total bet stake. Boom Pirates comes with a 96.19% RTP and is rated as Medium High volatility so its guaranteed to offer an action packed and rewarding experience!
Wonderways Reel Extension Feature
At any point during the base game or bonus round, the Boom Pirate Wonderways feature can activate. When this happens, the slot extends to incorporate 9 reels with 6 rows. This increases the Ways To Win to the maximum amount of 10,077,696 and means even more chances to win big.
Increase your Chances with Foxify
If you have been playing for a while and the game is yet to trigger the extended reels mechanism, you can give it a bit of a helping hand. The Foxify feature is designed to increase the chances of triggering the Boom Pirate feature by 50%. You can activate it at any time for a small price.
Mary’s Five of a Kind
One feature in Boom Pirates that you may not expect is the Five of a Kind. This can take place after any non-winning spin. When triggered, Mary will swing on a rope into the reels and transform 5 symbols to instantly give you a 5 of a kind win.
Yo Ho Ho Free Spins
Boom Pirates features 2 Scatter symbols, the Yo and the Ho. If you want to trigger the free spins round, you need to spell out Yo Ho Ho on the reels with symbols on reel 1, 3 and 5. If you succeed, you are rewarded with 10 free spins and the chance to retrigger 5 more. The extended reel feature can also activate in the free spins round and when it does, it stays extended for the duration of the bonus.
If you are feeling like you need a bit of a bonus hit, you have the option of buying your own entry into the free spins round. This will cost you 100x your bet stake but may be worth a lot more if your luck is intact.
Get ready to don your eye patch and say ahoy matey! Boom Pirates is set to offer plundering fun galore and the chance to get your hands on the booty.
