Boom Pirates Wonderways Slot Review
Foxium and Microgaming teamed up to develop a brand-new video slot that will take us on a small island, which is being attacked by pirates. Boom Pirates Wonderways is a six-reel, four-row slot that benefits from Wonderways game engine. This means that the reel grid can expand up to 9×6 and offer from 1,024 to amazing 10,077,696 ways to win. Apart from that, the 2019 release offers several rewarding features, including the Free Spins feature, Boom Pirates feature, Mary’s Swahsbuckling Attack, as well as Buy Feature and Foxify feature, which increases your chances of triggering the Boom Pirate feature, but for a certain price.
The reels of the Foxium product are set on a small island in the middle of the sea. The island is the home of a little town, which is attacked by pirates. Mary is the captain of the ship (which is located on the left side of the screen), and is also the highest-paying regular symbol. Her faithful Pirate will make sure that there are enough Cannon Balls for the attack, while her Parrot is there to keep her company. Also, they will need plenty of Cannons and Gun Powder Barrels. The Yo Ho Ho symbols are the Scatters that trigger the Free Spins feature.
The Wonderways game engine will definitely remind you of the Megaways game engine, only this time we have plenty more ways to win. The 2019 release starts with a 5×4 reel grid and offers 1,024 ways to win. If you are lucky enough, the Boom Pirates feature, which is triggered randomly, will fire cannons on the reels often and expand the reel grid up to the maximum 9×6, which will then offer 10,077,696 ways to win. After every spin in the base game, the reel grid is reset to the staring 5×4. The Foxium title pays left to right, starting from the leftmost reel, with three of a kind being the minimum for landing payouts. Bet as low as £0.10 and as high as £30 per spin.
We have already mentioned the Boom Pirates feature, which is triggered randomly. To increase your chances of triggering the feature, it is recommended to activate the Foxify feature, which comes with a certain price. When Foxify is activated, the bet is increased by 50%. After any non-winning spin, the Mary’s Swashbuckling Attack feature can be randomly triggered. Mary will swing on a rope and change some symbols to reward gamers with five-of-a-kind win.
The Free Spins feature is triggered when 3 Yo Ho Ho Scatters appear on reels 1, 3 and 5. The other way to trigger freebies is to buy the feature, which will cost you 100 times the bet. Gamers receive 10 free spin, while 3 extra Scatters landed during the feature will secure you 5 more freebies. The Boom Pirates feature is active both during free spins, but this time the reel grid will not reset after every spin, it will stay active until free spins are over.
The maximum possible payout is set at mouthwatering 3,800 times the bet. Try to expand the reel grid as much as you can, in order to reach the maximum 10,077,696 ways to win. This is achievable during the Free Spins feature. Mary, the captain is the symbol that pays the most, offering 2,500 coins for nine of a kind. Boom Pirates Wonderways’ RTP is 96.19%.

A fantastic pirate tale brought to us by Foxium and Microgaming! Even though the visuals could have been done a little better, the 2019 release is one of the best video slots we had the pleasure of testing of late. The Wonderways game engine is very good and extremely helpful during the Free Spins feature, when the reels cannot be reset. The betting range is not as wide as high rollers would have liked, but, all in all, Boom Pirates Wonderways is definitely worth your attention.
