Booming Bars Slot Review
When I'm in a grocery store and I see the words “new and improved”, I can't help buying the product. While I've never actually stopped to think how chunky Peanut butter could be both new and improved, I purchase every time. I can understand it being either a brand new product or an old product that's improved – But NEW AND IMPROVED? Nonetheless, I'm a sucker. I think I've found an accurate definition of “new and improved” in the online casino world though: take a tired variety of game or slot and use it as a base, then proceed to improve every aspect and viola – new and improved! Booming Bars falls slap bang into that category. This Booming Games video slot is a total re-invention of a standard 3x3 mini-slot. It's available for enjoyment on P.C, mobile devices and tablets. Minimalist elegance is the first impression I got when playing this stunning video slot. It's sorta like when I got my first proper car – a feeling of “how the heck was I driving that old hunk of junk for so long?” You feel like you are in the V.I.P room of a world-class casino while the hordes of smaller gamblers are fighting for standard slots on the general casino floor.
This 3 reel slot has 10 paylines and souped-up versions of traditional slot symbols. The single, double and triple bars are joined by glitzy 7's of three colors and a “BB “ wild symbol. The controls blend seamlessly into the slot - from left: Bet per line, Lines, Win display, Spin, Autospin, Bet max. Uppper left is a paytable info and on the right is an info button. The Autoplay has only bet and spin number parameters.
I'm a big free spin fan, so initially, I was disappointed with their absence, but being a traditionally based 3x3 slot, it's understandable. The wild symbol more than makes up for it though, substituting for all other symbols and multiplying your wins by 2. If you're lucky enough to land 3 wilds, the payout is not doubled but is rather an astounding 500 times your bet stake!
Like my car upgrade, this slot speeds along beautifully. The graphics are the best versions of symbols we've seen plenty of times before while the music is original and entertaining (for a while).
Booming Bars scratches any itch you might get to play a slot at a casino in Vegas. In fact, this gem will no doubt be ripped off by some land-based casinos. If you wanna feel like you're a high roller, then this one's for you. Streamlined and sleek, it's slots at their core – with a lot of syle thrown in.
