Stunning artwork and animations are the foundation for Microgaming’s latest release, Boom Pirates, created exclusively for Microgaming by independent developer, Foxium.
In this dynamic online slot, Captain Mary hoists the Jolly Roger along with her crew of pirates who, along with players pillage the seven seas in their ship loaded with treasures including the all-new Wonderways™ and Foxify™ features.
During the Boom Pirates feature the playing grid in the base game can expand significantly from 4×5 up to a huge 6×9, while the ways to win increases from just over 1,000 to a maximum of 10,077,696, with a payout of up to 4,000X the player’s total bet.
Powered by Wonderways, the feature can be randomly triggered on any spin during the base game.
The Foxify feature can be activated by players in order to increase their chances of triggering the three-treasured feature; by raising the initial wager by 50 percent the pirates’ cannons will receive extra gunpowder, improving the chance of a grid explosion.
Captain Mary being the fearless leader she is, is a strong presence throughout the game, randomly swinging into action turing some non-winning symbols into a five-of-a-kind win. The brave captain also takes the lead as she and her faithful band of pirates give way to a round of yer fine sea chantey while scatter symbols landing anywhere on reels 1, 3 and 5 activate five extra bonus spins.
When the Boom Pirates cannon has fired, activated Wonderways (exploded cells) remaining open and active during the bonus. The two combined make for huge win potential.
In the buy-in feature, players can also elect to buy bonus spins for the special pirates’ price of 100x their initial stake. The intriguing feature allows buccaneers to rummage the bounty of bonus spins any time they choose to during the game.
The new slot will be available exclusively to select Microgaming operators for a number of weeks, before going live for all to enjoy.
Commenting on the new slot, Chief Executive Officer for the Tallinn-based creative game production studio, Åke André, said in the official press release…
“Boom Pirates is set to be an explosive success and marks the maiden voyage of our new Foxify and Wonderways technologies, which we believe will transform the player experience and enable our creative teams to take game development to the next level.”
Director of Global Operations for Microgaming, James Buchanan, added…
“Boom Pirates is full to the brim with thrilling features, new mechanics and a soundtrack of sea shanties not to be missed. Captain Mary takes players on an exciting adventure as they navigate the game’s cannon fire, swashbuckling pirates and quests for treasure. The Boom Pirates feature expands the reels to an astounding nine-by-six grid with over ten million ways to win, offering players the potential for substantial rewards.”
