Booming Games launched Booming 7 Deluxe as a sequel to their 2015 title. Just like its predecessor, the 2016 title takes players to a brick-and-mortar casino with a 3x3 grid set within its interior. The slot boasts an impressive appearance and offers highly exciting gameplay with 10 adjustable paylines, substitutes, a 7x multiplier, the 2-Pay Way feature and free spins. The reels are home to old-school symbols including oranges, lemons, cherries, pineapples and bells paying prizes of lower values. The top paying symbols are Wilds and Scatters with Wild being the most lucrative icon paying 77 coins for 3 of a kind.
Before you start playing the Booming Games take on a traditional fruit machine, make sure to set your bet. A betting range is wide thus catering to both beginners and high rollers. Players can choose a bet per line from $0.01 up to $5, meaning that at all paylines active, you can wager from $0.10 up to $50 per spin. It is recommendable to leave all paylines active for the best odds of winning. The Max Bet button is also available letting you set your bet to the maximum value at once. You can push the Spin button to set the reels in motion or activate up to 100 automatic spins if you wish so.
The gold bar represents Wild that substitutes for all symbols except for Scatter to complete your winning combinations. If 3 Wilds appear anywhere in view, the 2-Way Pay feature gets activated. During the next 10 spins, all combinations will pay both ways and the feature can be retriggered the same way. If you trigger the free spins feature during the 2-Way Pay feature, it stops and the rest of spins will be played after freebies.
Look out for the Diamond 7 symbol as it acts as Wild with a 7x multiplier. It appears on the reel 2 only and replaces all the symbols bar Scatter. All winning combinations completed with this icon pay prizes multiplied by 7.
The Lucky Seven symbol is Scatter and once you land 3 of these on the grid, you will trigger 10 free spins and win a 70 coin payout. The free spins feature can be retriggered by landing another set of 3 Scatters.
On top of these, after each winning spin, the Gamble feature becomes available. Once you enter it, you will be offered to choose from cherries and oranges and if the selected symbol creates a 3 of a kind combination, your payout gets doubled. The Gamble feature is not available during automatic spins and within the free spins feature.
There is a lot going on in the Booming Games 2016 title and we enjoyed playing it. We particularly like a 7x multiplier as it boosts payouts substantially. However, a top payout of 77 coins seems quite low and applying a 7x multiplier won’t make it any better. While the RTP of 96.55% is above the average, we don’t find Booming 7 Deluxe as rewarding as it could be.
