Explodiac is a Bally Wulff take on an old-school fruit machine. Released back in 2015, the 5-reel 10-payline slot features graphics in vibrant colours with juicy fruits landing on the dark red backdrop. To keep things retro, the slot uses mechanic sounds of the spinning reels combined with a generic melody you would typically find in land-based cabinets. Although it offers straightforward gameplay, Explodiac comes equipped with the Bomb feature that boosts your winning chances by transforming neighbouring symbols into Wilds.
The reels are home to different kinds of fruits such as watermelons, grapes, plums, oranges, lemons and cherries. The top paying symbol is the lucky seven awarding 1,000 coins for a 5 of a kind combo. There are no playing card symbols in view, which we especially appreciate. The Bomb symbol is the only special icon in the game and you will love to see it landing on the reels.
Before setting the reels in motion, make sure to set your bet by choosing a coin value ranging from $0.01 and $10. Played at 10 fixed paylines, Explodiac allows you to set your bet anywhere between $0.10 and $100 per spin, which is suitable for both beginners and high-rollers. You can use the Max Bet button to set the stake to the max value automatically. The Autoplay feature is available too, allowing you to activate up to 250 consecutive spins and set the win and loss limits. To win a prize, you have to match 3 or more symbols across a payline in succession starting from the leftmost reel.
The Bomb stands for Wild and whenever this symbol appears on the reels, it will explode and turn adjacent symbols into Wilds. If you are lucky enough to land Bomb Wild on the central position, you can get a total of 9 Wilds stacked on the three central reels and complete multiple winning combinations at once. Thanks to this feature, you can easily win a maximum possible payout of 10,000 coins as Wild substitutes for all other symbols including top-paying lucky sevens.
The two Gamble features as on offer to allowing you to play the Card or Ladder game for a chance to increase your winnings. If you don’t feel like taking risks, you can simply collect your prize.
Those who like old-school fruit machines with no bells and whistles may find Explodiac an interesting offering. The Bally Wulff 2015 title comes with a solid RTP of 96.12% and medium volatility, so you can expect it to keep your bankroll balanced with regular wins. Look out for Bomb Wilds as this feature makes all the difference.
