Maximum Play, Minimum Effort
Explodiac Maxi Play is about as simple as slots get, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. There’s no obligation for a video slot to be an all-singing, all-dancing affair for it to earn pass marks. In fact, when it comes to classic slots, less is often more. The less distractions there are, the easier it is to focus on the game. After all, who needs intricate animations and HD graphics when all you’re trying to do is match five identical fruit on a payline?
A 20-payline game, Explodiac Maxi Play allows you to play with just 10 active lines if you’re so inclined. Even if you’ve never so much as looked at a fruit bowl in your life, the symbols that surface here should be very familiar, as they’re the very same fruits that have been surfacing in slots for decades including melons, lemons, plums and oranges.
Most of Bally Wulff’s slots have disappointingly low line bets but Explodiac Maxi Play is a different breed. This slot doesn’t just want you to bet big – it’s urging you to do so. It’s possible to wager as much as 50,000 on a single spin, based on a 2,500 line bet and all 20 lines active. At the bottom end of the scale, you can bet as little as 50, but this will still cost you 1,000 per spin. Any time you record a win, you can gamble it using the card or ladder gamble.
The cherries, lemons, oranges and plums are all worth 2,500 for five. In the fruit bowl hierarchy they’re surpassed only by grapes, which are worth twice as much, and by melons which are worth 12,500 for five. There’s one more classic symbol that appears here, and it’s one that will be very familiar to anyone who spent their youth playing classic slots – or slots as they were simply called back then. It’s the red 7 and it’s worth a whopping 50,000 for five.
That just leaves the bomb, the game’s biggest, noisiest and most powerful symbol. It’s wild and when it kicks in it will detonate powerfully, turning adjacent symbols into wilds. To make the most of this feature, be sure that Maxi Play is activated. Click on the button below the reels to make sure of this. A German voice will inform you of it current status. You’ll be treated to more bombs and double wins with Maxi Play activated, even if it’ll cost you 50% more per spin. The bomb will appear on the first three reels only.
Full of Fruit
There are hundreds of slots in a similar vein to Explodiac Maxi Play, just as you’d expect. Fruit is the slots world’s de facto theme, and you could could play a different fruit-based slot every day for the rest of your life and still not even come close to sampling them all.
The closest game in terms of features and general feel is probably Novomatic’s Golden Sevens, another 20-payline slot which has an RTP of 94% and a single jackpot. Other similar games include Hot Shot Blazing 7s by Bally.
Bally Wulff’s Better Ones
Explodiac Maxi Play is undoubtedly one of Bally Wulff’s better games. It’s simple but it’s also maddeningly addictive due to the exploding wilds that liven this slot up no end. Just when you’re starting to tire of spinning for fruit relentlessly, those bombs detonate, sparking this game into life and making it all worthwhile. Explodiac Maxi Play is the sort of slot you could easily return to again and again.
