New Boom Pirates Slot Coming Soon
Source: Microgaming Get ready to head to the Caribbean for crisp, clever online slots action at a time when swashbuckling buccaneers ruled the waves! Boom Pirates is set to go live as an initial exclusive release in a couple of weeks, and there are plenty of reasons to get excited about it. For starters, there isn’t a Jack Sparrow wannabe in sight. Instead, we get to meet Captain Mary – yes, Mary – and her first mate, Ben, who are only too happy to help you find their buried treasure. See what other riches you can uncover when you play casino games at Ruby Fortune. Possibly even more fantastic than a strong female lead character are the Ways To Win offered by the game developed by Foxium. They start out at 1024, and they can eventually expand to 10,077,696. You also can look forward to three exciting special features.
Female Pirates Not Far-Fetched
The push for greater inclusivity in many countries around the world might lead you to think that Boom Pirates is a modern feminist take on a popular slot theme. After all, everyone knows that only men could be pirates, right? The truth is that Captain Mary’s character is based loosely on Mary Read, who lived from 1685 until 1721. Read was one of the most famous female pirates during the Golden Age of Piracy. What makes her story even more interesting was that she dressed as a man to join the British military when she was a teenager – and that’s not all. When she joined the crew of Jack Rackham in 1720, she was the second woman to have done so. Rackham’s crew also counted Anne Bonny among its number. Read enjoyed some success in her new career, but it was brought to a swift end when she was arrested in November 1720. Read lived an adventurous life, but was it as action-packed as the new online slot to be released by Foxium in the coming days? That remains to be seen!
Symbols On the Seven Seas
Glorious animated sequences set the scene of Boom Pirates. The ship’s captain is awakened from her rum-soaked sleep when the first mate spots a port that is open for the pillaging. Your task will be to spin the reels and land the symbol combinations to get your hands on some of the loot. Source: Microgaming The themed symbols include Captain Mary, first mate Ben, Mary’s green and orange parrot, cannon, kegs of gunpowder, and YO HO icons. The standard symbols are colourful 10, J, Q, K, and A playing cards. As many as 9 symbols can create a winning combination, and the most generous combinations are created by none other than the captain. Land 9 of her icon, and win 2500 coins. 9 of Ben will pay out 2000 coins, while 9 parrots will award you 1500 coins.
Amazing Special Features
Considering Boom Pirates is a casino game about a wild pirate woman, we expected to see a Wild symbol on the reels. There isn’t one, but what you will find is even better. Landing a spin that does not win can trigger a feature that sends Mary swinging across the screen. With a few slashes of her cutlass, she can produce a 5-of-a-kind combination. When Yo Ho Ho Scatters land on reels 1, 3, and 5, you will want to start chanting along with the captain and her crew, because exciting things are going to happen. The playing grid expands from 5x4 to 6X9, and a round of 10 Free Spins triggers. The grid will stay in its expanded form for the duration of the round. If you land more Yo Ho Ho symbols on reels 1, 3, and 5, you win 5 more Free Spins. The Boom Pirates feature includes Foxium’s Wonderways™ mechanism. It can be triggered randomly at any point during the base game. If this happens, you will see Mary’s ship near the shore. Cannons will blast, and the grid will expand from 5X4 to 9X6. This means the ways to win expand from 1024 to 10,077,696. The maximum payout you can win when this happens is a whopping 4000x your total bet. You can use the Foxify™ feature to increase your chances of triggering the feature. If you take the option, it will increase your bet by 50%. The game even will allow you to buy 10 Free Spins, played at 100.00 per spin, at any time.
What Else You Should Know
Boom Pirates has a RTP of 96.19% and a 19.94% hit rate, which makes it a highly volatile online slot. You can adjust the coin values to play within the range between the 0.20 and 50.00 minimum and maximum bets. Source: Microgaming We have no doubt that Foxium is going to impress players with this game. You definitely do not want to miss out on it, so be sure to give it at spin at Ruby Fortune soon!
