The colourful design here is nicely done. Set against an underwater backdrop, the reels include playing card suit symbols as well as a map, skull and anchor. The pirate captain, sporting a mighty red beard is the top payer. Land 3, 4 or 5 of these and you’ll receive an award of 1,5, 5 or 10 times your stake. Better still is the treasure chest which is the wild. This pays 2, 10 or 20 times your stake as well as substituting for all of the standard symbols.
In the top right-hand corner of the screen you’ll see a pirate ship. This can fire off Bonus Bombs on any spin and is the Bonus Bombs feature. If you land red skull bomb on the same line as the Bonus Bomb, it detonates and the prize is awarded. Here’s what’s on offer.
- Cash prizes - an award of up to 10 times your stake is made.
- Added wilds - between 5 and 10 wilds are added and a new payout calculation is made.
- Multiplier - a multiplier of between 2x and 10x is applied to any win from that spin as well as from any Cash Bonus Bombs that on active on that spin.
- Trigger All - this detonates all of the Bonus Bombs on screen and delivers all of their modifiers.
- Boombastic Free Games feature - 10 free spins are awarded. More Bonus Bombs are in play in this feature than during the base game. You can also retrigger the feature with a maximum of 70 free spins in total possible.
- Mystery Bomb - this can turn into any 1 of the Bonus Bombs.
When a Bonus Bomb is fired from the ship, you’ll have 7 spins to try and land the detonator.
If you wish you can pay an extra 1.5 times your stake in the base game and bring a second ship into play – this is called the Extra Ship feature. For example, at minimum stakes of 20p per spin you’d pay 50p per spin to add the second ship. This increases the number of potential Bonus Bombs in play. Just click on the Extra Ship tab to activate this option.
Bombs is quite an unusual take on the classic pirate-themed slot game. Design-wise it’s very good. The visuals are nicely done and there’s a jaunty reel playing as you spin. You can expect to land the Bonus Bombs regularly which means there’s a steady stream of action. It’s possible to detonate multiple Bonus Bombs on the same spin which can deliver some top action.
This pirate-themed slot game is a little different from the norm. Get lucky with the detonators and these Bombs can deliver some potentially explosive results – up to 4,000 times your stake with the potential 10x multiplier on each spin/free spin. If you like the pirate theme, Pirate’s Charm by Quickspin is 1 to walk the plank for.
