The Boom Pirates is a 5-reel slot, offering 1024 ways to win in default mode but it offers up to 10,077,696 ways to win when fully expanded. We just can’t help but notice the similarity to BTG’s Megaways mechanics. Other than that, the slot has plenty of features that will keep you on the edge of your seat for hours on end.
The symbols that will appear in view include low-value A to 10 royals, as well as better paying parrots, canons, pirate, captain, and barrels. There is a scatter symbol triggering the free spins, but there is no wild.
If you decide to take advantage of the Foxify feature, you will boost your chances of triggering the free spins round, but that will result in a 50% stake increase.

Mary’s Swasbuckling Attack – A feature randomly triggered after a losing spin and awarding a 5 OAK win
To trigger the feature, you must land three scatters on reels 1, 3, and 5 and these scatters must spell YO-HO-HO. If you do that, you get 10 free spins. Extra paylines may be added during the free spins round.
The Boom Pirates slot has a Buy Feature that enables you to get instant access to the free spins round at the price of 100x your stake.
Despite the few shortcomings such as the absence of a wild, the Boom Pirates is a brilliant slot. It is a major step forward for a small studio like Foxium and a breath of fresh air for Microgaming that was criticized for the release of uninspiring, dated slots. Stay tuned. We will update this review once a release date is specified.
