Pan for Gold in the New Game Big Boom Riches Slot!
There’s gold in them there hills! Welcome to the California Gold Rush, or the Klondike if you’d prefer. Set in a time when success looked like a snaggle-toothed Santa, Big Boom Riches slot from Quickfire, aims to replicate the feel of hitting pay dirt. So, be prepared to get your hands dirty coz the payoff could be worth your while!
And the Wilds went Boom!
This game is Wild! In fact, there are 3 Wilds that you can potentially land: namely a stock-standard one, a TNT Wild, and the X-Wild.
Any line win, or TNT Wild, will trigger the Rolling Reels feature. Now the winning symbols will disappear and that lets new ones in, which means you could land consecutive wins off a single spin. Land 3 or more TNT Wilds during the base game, and you’ll be awarded a cash prize. It breaks down like this: 3 TNT Wilds get you 1x your stake, and it goes all the way to 12 TNT Wilds awarding 5,000x the stake.
During Rolling Reels, a landed TNT or X-Wild will be removed from the grid, and all symbols (other than Scatters or normal Wilds) next to the TNT or X-Wilds will also disappear. The feature continues until there are no more winning combos or TNT/X-Wilds on the reels.
Just like the Wilds, the Scatters in this slot also love company.
You’ll find two types of Scatters (that’s our grizzly prospector) in this game; one has a blue background and is the regular Scatter, while the red one is the Free Spin Scatter. Landing a Scatter during free spins doesn’t pay immediately; it simply awards an extra free spin.
Land 3 to 5 Scatters and you’ll get 9 free spins. And there’s the potential to win an extra free spin for each subsequent Scatter. Free spins start with a 1x multiplier, and these increase by 1 for every X-Wild that you get during free spins.
Now if you want guaranteed free spins, you can always use the Buy feature. All you need to do is select your bet value (from €0.20 – €50) and that awards free spins as a multiple of the current bet. When using this feature, you’ll see 3 Scatters that are randomly placed on the reels. But beware. You’ll need to balance the amount you pay for a round of free spins with your potential payout.
Rack ’em up with Rolling Reels
Big Boom Riches slot offers up the prospect of landing a massive €250,000 top prize, due to very high volatility. Thankfully, the 96.06% RTP does help to even things out a little bit as regular wins won’t be making an appearance all that often.
One unfortunate thing is that the grid is really tiny. It’s this little box-like structure that’s set against sprawling mountains and train tracks, which doesn’t make for the greatest experience.
On a mobile device, like a smartphone, the experience is better, but if you’re viewing in horizontal format, you still lose a lot of real estate to the background.
The gold-digger (no, not that type) theme is a popular one. So, if this is your vibe and you’d like to explore more of the same, then we reckon Wild Wild Chest slot, Gold Hunter slot, or Goldstruck slot is probably a better fit for you.
The first one has a super crisp and clean design, while the last two aren’t old America types, so they have a bit more of a modern spin on the theme.
