Booming Gold Slot Review
Isn't it amazing that throughout history gold had retained both its intrinsic value and appeal, irrespective of outside market forces? I mean its a pretty hunk of shiny metal! That's it! That's all! As a symbol of wealth, both the sophisticated rich and the tactlessly wealthy have embraced it. It's a little comical really: Hmm, like I'm going to respect you more if you have gold teeth! Don't get me wrong – I'd like to own some gold bars because they're valuable, but I've always laughed at those who have found ways to show it off. In fact, I once had a blind date with a woman who had two gold teeth. Sheer panic was my initial reaction and her personality induced even more fleeing instincts. The waitress seemed to receive my telepathic cries for help because when my date went to the ladies room, she told me to “hang in there, it's almost over”. Vivid memories of that traumatic night came flooding back to me with Booming Gold, a video slot created by, of course, Booming Games. It works on your gold encrusted P.C, mobile device or tablet. Let me start by saying anyone who takes this slot seriously is making a mistake: It's clearly a parody on our love for gold….I hope. Treating it as such let me find the tongue in cheek humor in the cheesiness that is Booming Gold. I got a chance to laugh at the fact that money can't buy you class.
Booming Gold is a 5 reel and 20 payline slot making it borderline high volatility. Every symbol is gold: Dollar sign pendant (scatter), golden teeth (wild – don't be coming near me with that mouth lady!), golden bikini girl, coins, ring, gold bars and a sportscar. The wild of the odious golden teeth can substitute for all symbols except the scatter. The controls are decorated with gold (surprise, surprise). Above the game screen: Paytable, Balance, Bet, Turbospin and Info. Down below: Bet Per Line, Lines, Win, Spin, Auto and Max Bet,
3 or more scatter symbols anywhere triggers 10 Free Spins which are re-triggerable. Your current number of Free Spins is displayed in a Free Spins counter.
The 4th reel is a Wild Reel in which all symbols are always wild, except for one possible scatter symbol. This was a nifty and innovative addition.
The graphics are well rendered and while they can be appreciated for their quality, it's tough to actually like the things that are on screen unless you've been a guest on the Jerry Springer show. The animations fall into the same category. The music and sound effects reinforce the fact that this slot doesn't take itself seriously. (PHEW!) Performance wise I had no issues on any device tested.
If you've got a set of gold teeth, I apologize for my disparaging comments, but please feel free to contact me for the number of a good dentist. Booming Gold is a parody which works brilliantly if you recognize it as such. The Wild Reel is a brilliant aspect and keeps players engaged in every spin. So give this slot a try – I promise: It's pure gold!
