Boom Brothers Slot Review

There’s one more thing miners love almost as much as they love gems – explosions! This NetEnt release is called Boom Brothers slots and for a good reason – it features a wacky trio of mining dwarves and their love of all things explosive. Boom Brothers is NetEnt’s second platinum video slot (first was Gonzo’s Quest) and has a whole raft of animations and special effects. It’s appealing to all types of players as you can play from 20p to £50 a spin. Keep reading to find out more!

Boom Brothers Slots Overview

Boom Brothers slots introduces you to the story with a very realistically-animated scene set deep inside an underground diamond mining cave. The craziest of the three brothers, a red-headed dwarf with an impossibly huge grin, decides to speed up the mining process with a blast of TNT. After this short film, you find yourself on the playing screen which features turning gears and symbols set upon chains that roll down as if into the depths of the earth. A simple background track of outdoor noises coupled with pings of whimsical music complete the scenery. When the reels turn, they sound like lightly clattering chains.

This five-reel and twenty-payline slot is extremely mechanical in nature, with cogs turning slowly above the reels to the right and the left and the symbols being linked together by chains.

All the symbols are theme-related, rendered in an almost steampunk style. The lower-value symbols represent tools commonly used in mining and include a miner’s helmet, a bucket, a pickaxe & hammer and a glowing lantern. The higher value symbols are metallic representations of the Boom Brothers themselves. Special symbols are a ‘railtrack’ symbol which activates the bonus game, a ‘free spins’ logo and a fizzing bomb wild.

How To Play Boom Brothers Slots

Before you start spinning the reels filled with various mining-related tools and contraptions, you need to adjust your bet first. The “Lines” selector lets you choose the number of paylines played, while “Level” selects the bet level. “Coin Value” modifies the coin size ranging from 0.01 to 1. Pressing “Spin” turns the reels, “Max Bet” spins them at the highest wager and “Autoplay” allows them to spin a number of times uninterrupted.

How To Win Boom Brothers Slots

The fierce-looking helmet and the cracked bucket are the lowest-paying symbols, awarding 75 coins for a combination of five. These are followed by the pickaxe & hammer and the lantern symbols which are worth 100 coins for five. Then come the miners. Landing five of the greyish-brown metallic version of one of the brothers will award you with 125 coins, whereas the green one and the orange one are worth 250 coins for five-of-a-kind combination. The white dwarf symbol is the highest-value symbol of Boom Brothers slots, paying 500 coins for five on a payline.

Boom Brothers Slots Bonus Features

Second Chance

This feature perfectly shows why Net Entertainment is deemed as one of the more creative slots developers; on each spin there’s a random chance that one of the Boom Brothers will race out onto the screen and spin one of the reels again or explode a symbol to let another fall into its place. 

Free Spins

Landing three of the free spins logo symbol anywhere on the reels triggers the free spins round. When this happens, the symbols will start to spin and reveal numbers between 8 and 50, indicating the number of spins you’ll receive.

There’s a 3x multiplier for any prizes won here and each time you land another free spin symbol you’ll get one more spin. You can also re-trigger the feature by landing three more bonus symbols.

Railtrack Feature

Three railtrack symbols on an active payline will gain you entry into this mini-game; the first part is to help the dwarf cross the reels on his cart by landing pieces of track on reels four and five.

The second part shows the three miners on three tracks separated vertically. Your task is to click one of the three carts at the bottom of the screen to reveal a gold bar, a ruby or a diamond and the number of places to move. Each precious metal moves one of the brothers across the screen and the first to arrive grabs the prize which then becomes yours.
