Boom Pirates Slot from Microgaming
fri 1 nov 2019
Boom Pirates Offers Over 10 Million Ways to Win!
The pirate-themed slot genre continues to grow at a seemingly exponential rate, and developers are having to work particularly hard to come up with ways of making their newest offerings stand out from the existing fleet of titles. Boom Pirates
, which was developed exclusively for Microgaming
by Foxium, is the latest seafaring newcomer, and what sets this slot apart from the rest are a couple of brand-new features that you won’t find anywhere else. One of those features is Wonderways, which is worth taking particular note of because it can give you over ten million ways to win!
Meet Captain Mary
When you first launch the Boom Pirates game you will be treated to a superb animated sequence which sets the scene very nicely indeed. A pirate ship is sailing across the ocean and all appears to be calm, with even the ship’s parrot sleeping soundly in his cage whilst one of the pirates sleeps off a rum-fuelled hangover in a hammock. That’s when Captain Mary notices that there is land in the distance, and the ship quickly comes to life as the prospect of some serious pillaging takes hold.
The game itself is gives you a bird’s eye view of the land, with the pirate ship just offshore. Five reels, each with four rows, are superimposed on the land, and this default mode gives players 1,024 ways to win
. Symbols appearing on the reels include the playing card ranks of 10, J, Q, K and A, a barrel, a cannon, a parrot, a character called Ben, Captain Mary herself and YO HO HO scatter symbols.
The visuals in this title are of the highest quality, and there are plenty of animations involved which help to give it an incredibly immersive feel. Add in a swashbuckling soundtrack, as well as a plethora of realistic sound effects, and Boom Pirates is sure to be a big hit with anyone who has ever dreamed of embarking on the pirate’s life.
Boom Pirates Feature
The Boom Pirates feature can be triggered at any time during the main game, and you will know when it happens because Captain Mary will announce the fact with her call for the ship to shoot its cannons. You will then see cannonballs being shot into the reels, and as they land the number of reels and rows that are in play will increase. There can be as many as nine reels and six rows in play, and if you manage to extend things that far, you will have an incredible 10,077,696 ways to win
. Such is the magic of the new Wonderways mechanic from Foxium.
Mary’s Swashbuckling Attack
This feature is one which can be triggered after any spin in the main game which did not result in you achieving a winning combination of symbols. When it is activated, Captain Mary will swing into action on a rope and will transform as many symbols as required to give you a five-of-a-kind win.
When you are playing the main game, you can choose to play in standard mode or activate a special Foxify feature. Should you wish to activate it, you can do so at any time by clicking the Foxify button on the right-hand side of the display bar below the reels. Activating the feature will cost you 50% more than when playing without it, but it will also increase your chances of triggering Boom Pirates and Mary’s Swashbuckling Attack, as well as the exciting Free Spins feature.
Should you prefer to take the element of surprise out of the equation altogether, there is also a Buy Feature button on the left of the display bar, and pressing this will instantly activate the Free Spins feature for a cost of 100 times your total bet
Free Spins Feature
Assuming that you don’t buy access to it in the manner described a moment ago, the regular way to trigger Free Spins is by getting three scatter symbols on the reels at the same time. This will spell out YO HO HO and award you ten free spins.
During this part of the game, the full nine reels and six rows will be shown, and inactive cells will initially appear as grey skulls. It is possible for dormant cells to be activated as the free spins proceed, which will obviously increase the number of ways to win that you enjoy. Any cell which is activated in this way will remain so for the duration of the Free Spins feature.
An Explosive Success
‘Boom Pirates is full to the brim with thrilling features, new mechanics and a soundtrack of sea shanties not to be missed,’ said James Buchanan, who is Director of Global Operations at Microgaming. ‘Captain Mary takes players on an exciting adventure as they navigate the game’s cannon fire, swashbuckling pirates and quests for treasure. The Boom Pirates feature expands the reels to an astounding nine-by-six grid with over ten million ways to win, offering players the potential for substantial rewards.’
The entire team at Foxium is equally excited about this new release. ‘Boom Pirates is set to be an explosive success and marks the maiden voyage of our new Foxify and Wonderways technologies, which we believe will transform the player experience and enable our creative teams to take game development to the next level,’ said Foxium CEO, Åke André.
