Booming Games have decided to spice up their arcade-like slot that revives the feeling of playing at a brick-and-mortar casino. Booming Seven Deluxe is an upgrade of the namesake so this time we will see 10 instead of 9 paylines and a couple of tweaks added to make this simple game more exciting.
The theme is set in the old-school casino with standing slot machines all around while the reel set resembles the display of a one-armed bandit.
Despite the retro feel of the theme, the graphics sport premium quality of the cutting-edge HD technology. Don’t get fooled by the simple 3×3 grid, as it hides many lucrative features such as Multipliers, Free Spins and two-way wins.
Booming Games is an Isle of Man-based provider of online gaming content, primarily video slots. They boast a portfolio of around 50 in-house developed games which are available on desktop and mobile platforms.
Booming Games have been in the business for only a couple of years, but they are growing rapidly by providing quality and flexible content. Booming Seven Deluxe is a good example of their games, which usually sport a similar design.
How to Play It
When it comes to the controls and functionality Booming Games like to keep it standard and recognisable, so if you have played any other game by this developer you will be familiar with the navigation of the game. Even if this is your first Booming Games slot you will catch the ropes pretty easily as the menu board is pretty intuitive.
Booming Seven Deluxe comes with 10 variable paylines, meaning that you can choose the number of active paylines. Additional options are to use Betmax if you wish to bet the maximum possible amount or to switch to Autoplay. There is also the Gamble which allows you to gamble each time you win some money.
The reel set and the music are completely the same as in the predecessor Booming Seven. Typical fruity symbols will roll on the reels, so expect to benefit from matching combinations of BARs, 7s, lemons, oranges, cherries, pineapples and bells.
In comparison to the older version of the game, this time we will see the addition of one special symbol – a multiplying 7. It acts as both Wild symbol and the multiplier.
Regular 7 acts as the Scatter that triggers Free Spins, while the golden Bar will appear as the Wild which can replace any icon but the Multiplying 7 and the Scatter.
What may come as a surprise here is that you don’t expect a range of special symbols an features in a simple 3×3 fruity machine. Well, this is where Booming Games make a difference and we must say that they have done a good job proving that an old-school video slot does not have to be reduced down to a single feature.
As in most Booming Games slots, there is a chance to benefit from Free Spins. In this case, three 7s will trigger 10 Free Spins with the possibility to re-activate the feature, should you land another three of these icons during the free play.
The most interesting feature is definitely the addition of a multiplying 7 which appears as a Wild able to replace any symbol but the Scatter. However, this is only a part of what this icon can do. When appearing as a part of the winning combination it will multiply the win by 7.
Another interesting feature, which we had a chance to see in the previous version of this game is two-way win. Actually, when three wilds appear across the paylines they will activate the two-way win feature for the next ten spins.
This means that the winning combinations are counted both from left to right and right to left and that if you find a winning combination that counts in both directions, both ways will count. In case that you activate Free Spins while two-way win feature is active, the feature will be paused and resumed after the free play is over.
While you are waiting for these bonus features you can have your fun with Gamble feature available from the main menu, which can be applied to any win.
After a winning combination you can start Gamble feature and try your luck with a double-or-nothing game. Pick one of the two offered fruits and wait for the machine to land on one of them. You can gamble up to ten times or until you win 10,000.
The maximum amount you can get from the winning combinations is if you land three Wilds or three Scatters which pay 7.7x or 7x your stake, respectively.
However what may boost your chances of winning is if you manage to land a winning combination with a Multiplying 7 which will multiply the win. The bet ranges from $0.30 to $30.
What at first sight might seem as another old-school video slot with nothing much to offer but nostalgia for the good old fruity machines turns out to be brimming with features and winning potential.
Though, the payouts are not promising of hefty prizes, features like Multiplying 7, Two-way wins and Free Spins offer plenty of chances to win and have fun along the way.
