Powered by Booming Games, Booming Bars is a pastiche to all the retro games back from the nostalgic 1980s. The game's symbols contain all the classic icons you'd expect to find on nostalgic slot machines - BAR symbols, gold and red seven's, plus a funky audio soundtrack to really get you into the mood.
Booming Bars has a conventional standard slots layout of three x three reels. The betting buttons appear like a standard offline slot machine, although the lightning symbol enables quick play if players are in a hurry to finish their spins. Pressing the Autoplay function allows players to spin the reels automatically up to 100 spins.
Various classic three-reel slots games online are relatively volatile. Like their bar and casino-based cousins, players will find themselves spinning away for ages before receiving any meaningful jackpots. Sadly, Booming Bars is no different - it does have a medium volatility yet this will still require some spins before players first payout is given.
Payouts are awarded for lining up three suitable symbols:
After these more basic wins, players obtaining combination symbols can obtain higher payouts:
When players land the Sevens, the payouts get even more serious.
Whilst there are no bonus traits in Booming Bars, there is a useful wild symbol. It's the BB icon and will substitute for all regular symbols in the slot. Players will win a 2x multiplier on all winning paylines completed by a wild.
Plus, if players land three BB symbols on a line, they will win the highest prize worth 500x their line bet. Not too many bonus features yet high-paying nonetheless; however, if players are expecting free spins with multipliers, they will go away well disappointed.
Booming Bars is a practical low limit online slot game that delivers enough gameplay to keep most punters happy. It's low on variance, but that's OK when you consider the game is played on only three reels.
