Theme for Boom Pirates Online Slot

The Boom Pirates slot from Foxium puts players right in the middle of the action, as a rough and tumble crew of pirates sails out on the high seas. There are charismatic characters that each have their own personality in the game, which features vivid 3D graphics. Among the crew are Mary, a tough captain, and Ben, an explosives expert. Their adventure is also accompanied by a parrot who seems a little overexcited. I think Foxium has done a good job bringing life to this slot, and it looks great.


Boom Pirates Slot: How To Play

In what appears to be a series of slots called Wonderways, this is the first game. In a sense, Boom Pirates is similar to Megaways slots, in that the reels expand.

In the slot, there are 1024 winning ways, and if you're lucky, you can trigger over 10 million of them. In the paytable, it's not particularly clear how this works, but here's what you need to know:

The cannonball feature is randomly triggered, and it fires at the reels to activate more winning combinations. When the reels expand, more cannons expand the reels from 3,125 winning ways to 7,776 to 46,656 - and onwards until all 10,077,696 winning ways have been revealed. Adding 50% to your wager will increase your chances of expanding the reels if you "foxify" your spin.


Boom Pirates Slot RTP: What Is It?

The RTP (return to player) for Boom Pirates from Foxium is 96.19%. In addition, it is a slot with a higher volatility. We have found that the game does pay out quite generously, but the prizes are few and far between. During our session, we received payouts ranging from 4x to 40x, which is worth it when you have to wait for a while between wins. You should always ensure that you have an adequate bankroll for this type of play and that your bets are enough to sustain you.


Free Spins And Bonuses At Boom Pirates

Free spins are triggered when you land three or more scatters. By placing a wager worth 66x your stake, you can also purchase entry into the free spins round.

You have increased opportunities to expand your reels in this round due to the active cannonball feature. During the free spins, the reels will remain expanded for the rest of the bonus game, resulting in a greater chance of winning.

Boom Pirates Slot Review - Overall

This is the first game in the Megaways series to take on the Megaways series head-first, so Boom Pirates is certainly an interesting slot. There have been quite a few slots with expanding reels (like Monopoly Heights and Ecuador Gold), but none have positioned themselves against Megaways. Just to see how Boom Pirates stacks up, it's worth checking out.

Boom Pirates, however, isn't as thrilling as Megaways. Despite the great theme and impressive graphics, the actual gameplay is lacking. Due to the fact that you need to trigger a random bonus consecutively in order to expand the reels, you don't really get anywhere close to the 10 million ways to win throughout the slot.

Boom Pirates will keep you entertained if you play it for the payouts and the theme. If you want a unique new game format, however, you won't see it put too much effort into it.
