Powered by Red Tiger Gaming with an innovative theme, Arcade Bomb is a combination of fruit and the vast reaches of space brought together in an engaging and creative online video slot called Arcade Bomb.
Arcade Bomb has five reels and three rows and twenty paylines with wins being formed left to right as well as the right to left. If players get matching symbols on the middle three rows, they can also win here! The grid-like reels drift against a background of small pixellated objects floating through space and are transparent.
Not only including all ways wins, but Arcade Bomb also has an awesome Locked Reel Bombs feature. This is where brightly coloured bomb icons on each spin lock in position. They can then explode with four varying types of bombs that create different blast patterns. All the symbols in the pattern modify to the same symbol for wins of up to 1,000 times a player's bet stake.
Symbols in Arcade Bomb
Arcade Bomb has the appearance of an old school fruit machine – the pixelated visuals are reminiscent of early console computer games of the 1990s. The gameplay is nothing arcade about it though, it's beautiful, and smooth play will delight more modern players.
A spectrum of standard icons occupy the reels, including watermelon slices, glowing red sevens, golden bells, strawberries, cherries, oranges and lemons. In ascending order of value players should look out for cherries, lemons, oranges, strawberries, melons, bars and bells.
The most rewarding icon is the lucky Seven. Landing three, four or five of these in a row will payout either a 100, 250 or 1,000 coins. Rather than landing symbols on paylines, winning formations are formed by landing the same icons on adjacent reels.
There are no wild icons in Arcade Bomb; however, the four coloured bombs do add to the game's innovative gameplay.
Bonus features of Arcade Bomb
Reel Bombs are where all the bonus action occurs, and it all blasts off each time a bomb lands on the reels; with four bombs of varying colours adding to the gameplay, each counting down to one with every reel spin. When the countdown hits zero, each bomb explodes and transforms all icons in its range into matching symbols. Each bomb has different properties when they blow. These are:
Purple Bomb – explodes in a star shape impacting adjacent diagonal icons.
Green Bomb – explodes in a cross formation affecting nearby icons.
Yellow Bomb – explodes up and down impacting neighbouring icons.
Blue Bomb – explodes right and left affecting adjoining icons.
Players will typically see more than one bomb on the reels, and they will detonate each other if they are in each other's range, resulting in several more matching symbols.
Arcade Bomb is a brilliant and engaging slot – it’s an all-action with bombs constantly exploding with the potential for big wins.
There are no standard bonus features on offer in Arcade Bomb as the gameplay is solely based on the colourful exploding bombs that occur frequently and offer players frequent and steady lower-value payouts. Ideally, players will want to see more than one of the same bomb with the same number detonate simultaneously.
Arcade Bomb is an original game – like an old-school arcade favourite.
