Baam Boom Slot Games
Baam Boom is one of the latest releases from the software gaming developers at Playtech. The slot can be played on every device giving the player freedom to play whenever and wherever they wish. The game plays out on 5-reels and 30 pay lines with a bet range that starts at just 30p per spin, and a superb pirate theme that is simply portrayed but really works. The slot centres around the Treasure Chest feature where players have the chance to land as many as thirty free spins and the feature is activated when the player lands 3, 4 or 5 skulls which are the games scatters and can appear on any of the reels with players being rewarded with x5, x50 or x100 of their stake as well as 10, 20 or 30 free spins respectively.
Baam Boom is a super looking slot with the reels being set in the porthole of a classis pirate ship with the usual lower paying playing card symbols, Ace through to 10 there are also wooden kegs, flintlock pistols and jugs of ale. The most rewarding symbol is the crossed cannons symbol and players that land 5 of these on their pay line will be rewarded with a cash price equal to x16.6 of their total bet. The first things that players will notice about Baam Boom is the extraordinary soundtrack, personally I suggest hitting the mute button before it really gets going! Set amidst murky waters as the backdrop players can expect to come across the usual playing card symbols including Ace through to 9, beer mugs, barrels, cannons and guns. The wild is represented by the ‘X’ but this only appears when playing the base game and it can substitute for all other symbols with the exception of the scatter and it can pay out up to x33.33 of the players stake if they land five across any of their pay lines.
Another great bonus feature offered in Baam Boom is the Cannonball wilds and players need to collect these and then fire them at the treasure maps as this will provide cash rewards, there are five separate maps so there are plenty of cash bonuses up for grabs. Each of the maps have eight different prizes and players that manage to land five, are taken onto another map, the further the player gets the bigger the prizes awarded. There are wins of up to x166 of their stake to be won. Baam Boom variance wise would be medium with the biggest winnings coming from the treasure chest feature as there are not only 30 free spins but cash prizes available to win too. Despite the rather dodgy soundtrack, Baam Boom is a decent slot that offers a funky design and great range of features.
Pirate themes are a highly contended niche and Baam Boom has provided a solid take on this classic theme. For those looking for a seafaring adventure then this slot will fit the bill. If you find a liking for this theme and style you should give Wild Seas by ELK Studios, Red Lady from Novomatic and Pirate’s Charm from Quickspin a spin as they are also jam packed titles. Personally, I enjoyed playing Baam Boom, although I did find the treasure maps a bit hit and miss, more miss for my liking, however players that are patient and work their way through the maps will certainly see the gold mounting up.
