Foxium studio’s creative laboratory is led by Microgaming company, fulfilling its demands for new products. Another slot from the developers of this manufacturer was a gentlemen’s of fortune pirate story, called Boom Pirates.
Foxium is distinguished by the highest quality of graphics, which allows to regard as advantages of their products not only the content but also the form.
The game takes place on a tropical island, which the pirates have chosen as their land. Here they store the loot and players are offered to take some part of it.
The playing field has a starting format of 5×4, with 1024 paylines. However, the use of the increasingly popular Wanderways engine allows to increase the playing field to the 9×6 format, where 10 077 696 variants of winning combinations can be formed.
There are low-valued card symbols (from the 10 to the ace). The high-valued are barrels of gunpowder, a gun, a companion of all pirates — a parrot, as well as the main characters of the game, corsairs Ban and Mary. Mary, the leader of the sea robbers became the most valuable symbol, bringing x25 of the bet in a complete set.
There are no wilds in the game. Symbols YO and HO are responsible for activating the bonus round, forming a single pirate’s’ cry «Yo-ho-ho» from the famous song.
Players will have to choose whether to activate the Foxify feature manually. According to the manufacturer, it significantly affects the frequency of receiving the bonus round, but increases the rate by 50% at once.
In regular rounds you can hope for 2 random features:
The first is activated with the pirate’s cry, calling to open fire from guns on the playing field. These shots will allow the field to expand to its maximum size with 9 reels and 6 horizontals.
The second feature is possible only as a result of a winless spin. Mary will fly over the playing field using one of the ropes, included in the equipment of the ship, and will change the configuration of the symbols on the playing field so as to get a winning combination.
The main event of Boom Pirates slot will be a bonus round with free spins. When simultaneous scatters land on the first 3 odd reels, the word Yo-ho-ho will be formed and it will be activated.
In the received 10 free spins bonus feature from the regular rounds will appear much more often. All reels and horizontals, opened as a result of gunshots, will remain in the game until the end of the round.
The most impatient can buy this feature for 100 bets instead of waiting for it.
Microgaming has 3.81% of each bet in Boom Pirates slot, which is a typical fee of this provider.
