Sometimes you just have to dig out your own luck, or blow it out, if you have some dynamite. Big Boom Riches takes us to the times when the gold rush was taking over the minds of Americans. Prospectors from far and wide came to look for gold and gems, hoping to strike a fortune. Slot players could be called the modern forty-niners as they too are digging down multiple spins, in the search for the hidden gold. The gold rush made people rich overnight, so perhaps Big Boom Riches can do something similar to us.
The Microgaming partner studio Just For The Win are no strangers to us. We have enjoyed plenty of good slots from them, so the reputation precedes them. They strive to provide high-quality video slots and no doubt that has been the case so far. For Big Boom Riches there is a lot of competition, as the gold rush theme is widely used by many different providers. Still, players never seem to have enough, and we too are glad to see some new titles being released. Pickaxe in one hand and dynamite in the other, time to conquer the day.

Big Boom Riches Slot Review
Gameplay and Payouts
Just for the Win, shall we say, have pretty good presentation skills. All of their slots are cartoony and quite lighthearted. They definitely don’t have slots like Mental and San Quentin, those ideas are best left with Nolimit City. Anyhow, Big Boom Riches looks quite alright. The local miner introduces us to the game and the fun can begin. The mountain range and the forest look wonderful, although the regular 5x3 layout is really compressed to the middle, which makes it seem even smaller than it actually is. A minor flaw in overall a very well-rounded presentation. Let’s not forget the wonky soundtrack, which just adds another layer of immersion.
Just For The Win keep their UI minimalistic, so once you do manage to get to the paytable, Big Boom Riches reveals 8 regular and 4 special symbols. As a minimum, you need three identical symbols to produce a winning line. There are 20 paylines in total. The values for the symbols increase fairly gradually. On the low side, we got J, Q, K and A, while with slightly higher values follow 4 gemstones in colours of purple, green, orange and red. Visually, these are not one of the most impressive symbols we’ve seen, but they do the job well enough. We’ll go more into the special symbols once we talk about the bonus features of the Big Boom Riches slot.
With pretty basic core gameplay, Big Boom Riches provides some decent stats. First off, we will take a look at the RTP. The default RTP for Big Boom Riches is 96.06%. Anything below 96 could be considered on the low side, so this RTP is just around that threshold. The volatility is high, so expect a good dose of action. For Big Boom Riches, the max win can reach 5,000x, which is a decent haul for a gold rush, although, not the highest we’ve seen for such a game. Big Boom Riches bet range is 0.20 -50 EUR/USD/GBP.
To get those explosive wins, you will need more than regular symbols. In Big Boom Riches there are a couple of special symbols. For example, you can take some TNT Wilds, which award various cash prizes. Thanks to the Rolling Reels cascade mechanism you can score more than 5 Wilds per bet. The rewards vary from 1x to 5,000x, which is awarded for 12 TNT Wilds. There is also the regular Wild, which works the same way as on any slot, substituting for all symbols, except scatters. Speaking of that, Big Boom Riches Free Spins are triggered by 3 or more scatters symbols. The old prospector assumes the role of this symbol. Initially, you will begin with 9 Free Spins, but each new scatter adds +1 Free Spins. Besides scatters, you also need to collect X-Wild symbols. Each X-Wild symbol increases the multiplier by 1x. Quick access to Free Spins can be bought for 50x if you don’t want to wait for scatters to land.
The gold rush slot collection is vast, so it’s starting to become harder to compete with some higher tier providers. Even though Big Boom Riches won’t top the charts, it’s still an enjoyable game, with some entertaining elements. Big Boom Riches focuses on collecting, which is emphasized during Free Spins, where you need to collect scatters and X-Wilds. The game looks alright, although we are not sure why Just For The Win felt the need to make the layout appear so small. It didn’t cause any problems for us, but you could imagine it being uncomfortable for someone with visual impairment. Big Boom Riches slot has some flaws, but most of them are minor, so the positives are surely in majority.
