Dark Cartoon Fun
Not many people would have thought of a war ship as a fun theme but developer Cayetano have managed to create a light and entertaining game with an unusual background.
The cartoon like graphics take any sinister connotations out of the game while the simple design and structure of the game will appeal to all players, even those who are new to slots.
You’ll be playing aboard a warship and in the background, you’ll be facing the big, wide ocean.
The set up is much simpler than in other games, and there’s no complex calculations when setting the stake. Rather than choosing an amount per line and multiplying it up, you’ll simply pick how much you want to bet in total. This is a much easier option for those who are new to online slots and rules out any chance of misunderstandings.
You’ll be playing on 5 reels with 20 fixed paylines; as described above the total bet must be chosen rather than a value per line. This total bet can be as little as 0.20 or as much as 1000.00 providing plenty of scope for betters of all levels.
On the reels you’ll find an array of military-type symbols including bombs, missiles and grenades as well as representative symbols from high value cards.
To get a win you’ll need to match at least three symbols; the more you match on an active payline the bigger your prize will be. The top value symbol pays out 500 if you match five.
The top value symbol also doubles up as the wild, substituting for other symbols and making it easier to create a winning line.
The recorded Return to Player percentage for this slot is 94.4%, putting it at the lower end of average-good statistics.
Dropping the Bomb
As well as regular wins, there’s lots of other ways to play including the special bonus round. You won’t need to line up a row of bonus symbols; simply land a single bonus icon on the middle reels. But be warned, this isn’t as easy as it sounds!
If you manage to unlock the bonus game you’ll be faced with a screen full of locked safes. Out of the nine safes in front of you, your job will be to pick the one that you think will give you the biggest prize. Select your choice carefully because you could receive a multiplier of up to x40!
There are more extras than just the bonus round though, and if you’re lucky you could win one of the jackpots.
The progressive jackpots are tracked on your screen and throughout the game you’ll see their value clearly displayed on the windows in the relevant reels. As well as the current value, you’ll be able to check the top value of each of the jackpots so you’ll know if you’re starting to get close to their maximum capacity!
As a progressive jackpot, the more you bet with the more quickly the jackpots will rise so it’s up to you how much you dare to play with.
You will never want to see a bomb so badly as you will during this game! When one randomly appears on a reel and explodes, that means you have won the jackpot attached to that reel – it’s that simple.
Explosion of Fun
Bomb the Jackpot by Cayetano is an online video slot but with some distinct differences. The simplicity of the game design plus the way in which the stake is calculated make this slot particularly suitable for newbies, or those who prefer a less complex set-up. But don’t be completely fooled by what seems to be an underwhelming game, as there’s some really top features crammed in. With no less than five progressive jackpots and a bonus round, even the high rollers might find this game is worth a few rounds of play.
