The Bombuster slot one reminds us of an eighties arcade game in some respects, Wombat Fans, but it is hiding some high tech in its game engine! It’s not all cherries and lemons.
Bombuster Slot Facts
Bombuster is a 7×7 Cluster Pays slot game with Avalanche wins, Random Wilds, Symbol Swaps and Wilds. It’s a medium variance game with a maximum win of 2020x, somewhat calmer than something like Western Gold 2 from Just for the Win.
Although there are plenty of classic fruity symbols in this game, it also packs an explosive punch with bells, bombs, explosions and stars firing off. It’s highly entertaining!
The game was launched in August 2020.
The idea is to pull together high-value symbol combinations in this explosive slot release.
This title from Red Tiger Gaming uses a 7-reel ad 7-row slot grid on which you need to land symbol combinations of 5 and above to score payouts. So quite a bit different to more traditional games like the Diamond Royale slot and others.
The cluster-pays mechanic means you must land the same symbols in a group of 5 or more to land payouts; hence the large playgrid used.
With classic fruit machine symbols straight out of Reel King Mega and a simple, futuristic setting, the visual features in Bombuster are a sight to behold. The game mechanics aren’t bad either; with up to 200 Free Spins available, there is a lot of potential in play here.
Can you land explosive clusters here and score the high payouts on offer? Let’s hope so!
Whilst the visual features of this slot are simple enough, the gameplay looks great in this release, with the filled 49-space playgrid dominating the screen. This square playgrid is filled with colourful symbols that are engaging, entertaining and filled with potential rewards!
The playgrid is framed by a metallic square that breaks up the screen between the bright symbols and the simple backdrop.
Behind the playgrid, Red Tiger Gaming has opted for a futuristic, Tron-style feature that fans of the sci-fi classic might recognise. A grid pattern is used on all sides of the play table, moving into the middle of the screen. I thought it looked 80s!
To score payouts, you must land clusters of 5 matching symbols or more that have varied payouts depending on the symbols you drop in. The old-school symbols that fill the play table here vary in value, with some great payouts on offer.
The lower value symbols here are made up of fruit, including Cherries, Lemons, Oranges, Plums and Watermelon, with maximum payouts varying from 200x to 500x the stake. To score these high payouts, players must land a cluster of 40 or more symbols, a very lucky spin of the reels.
Higher value symbols here are made up of the Star, Bell and seven symbols with maximum potential payouts from 800x to a whopping 1,000x the stake. All the symbols are given a 3-D design with bright colours that make them stand out in the grid.
There is also a Wild symbol in play designed as a bright gold ‘W’ that can be used to make up winning clusters by substituting for any of the main game symbols.
With 3-different coloured bomb symbols potentially landing across the reels, players can access bonus features providing more winning possibilities.
The gameplay of Bombuster is compatible across desktop and mobile devices.
Bombuster Bonus Features
The bonus features in play are all about the bombs; these symbols can help you to land more clusters across the grid.
There are three bomb symbols that, when they land, introduce varying Free Spin features: the Yellow, Green and Red bombs. These can access the Wild, Swap and Destroy bomb features that should help score payouts.
– The Wild Bomb bonus feature is triggered with the Yellow Bomb and provides a random number of Free Spins capped at 200 for players to use. After these spins, the bomb will explode, turning any symbols it comes into contact with into a Wild.
– The Swap Bomb feature can be activated by the Green Bomb with up to 50 Free Spins available. After the Free Spins, this symbol explodes, making all of the base game symbols in its path into the same, randomly selected symbol.
– The Destroy Bomb feature can provide a seemingly small three spins to the player before exploding. When it explodes, all the symbols it comes into contact with are removed and replaced with new symbols from above; much like a cascading reels slot mechanic.
This simple slot game is great for new and seasoned slot players; the three bonus symbols and features in play here provide some good winning potential.
The simple visual features have been give a futuristic twist. With explosive gameplay on offer and a nice-looking play screen, the Bombuster slot is highly entertaining.
Remember, slots should be fun. Only play with what you can afford, and please gamble responsibly.
