Booming Gold Game Characteristics
Booming Gold has a 5X3 grid, seven symbols, 20 adjustable pay lines, a Wild reel, and free spins among its characteristics. The special symbols: a golden “$” necklace, which is a free spins-giving scatter; and a substituting close up image of a mouth ornamented with gold teeth and pink lipstick applied on the lips. The ordinary symbols of Booming Gold are: a half-naked woman wearing a golden bra and with her arms akimbo; three gold bars; one stack of golden coins; a sparkling golden eternity ring; and a golden luxury car.
The bet per line options in Booming Gold can be: $0.01 (also the minimum bet), $0.02, $0.03, $0.05, $0.10, $0.20, $0.30, $0.50, $1.00, $2.00, $3.00, $5.00, and $10.00. These are examples of Booming Gold total bets—for five, ten, 15, and 20 pay lines.
Five pay lines: $0.05, $0.10, $0.15, $0.25, $0.50, $1.00, $1.50, $2.50, $5.00, $10.00, $15.00, $25.00, and $50.00. Ten pay lines: $0.10, $0.20, $0.30, $0.50, $1.00, $2.00, $3.00, $5.00, $10.00, $20.00, $30.00, $50.00, and $100.00. Fifteen pay lines: $0.15, $0.30, $0.45, $0.75, $1.50, $3.00, $4.50, $7.50, $15.00, $30.00, $45.00, $75.00, and $150.00. All twenty pay lines: $0.20, $0.40, $0.60, $1.00, $2.00, $4.00, $6.00, $10.00, $20.00, $40.00, $60.00, $100.00, and $200.00.
Based on the $200.00 maximum bet, these are the Booming Gold payouts. Two, three, four, and five Wild ornamented mouths have $50.00, $500.00, $25000, and $250000.00. Three four, and five combinations: the golden “$” necklace pays $1000.00, $2000.00, and $3000.00; the three gold bars have $200.00, $500.00, and $1000.00; the stack of golden coins pays $100.00, $250.00, and $500.00; the golden eternity ring pays $70.00, $200.00, and $300.00; and the golden luxury car has $50.00, $100.00, and $150.00.
More than three golden “$” necklaces offer ten free games. The forth reel is mostly reserved for the Wild, but the scatter shows up there occasionally. The non-progressive jackpot of Booming Gold is $250000.00.
The Booming Gold software is good; its interface has three buttons (settings, autoplay, and “max bet”) along the grid’s bottom margin, three buttons (rules and up/down for total bet) along the top margin, and the spin button is at the center of the right margin; apart from the purple “max bet” button, all other buttons are golden. The usual 2-Way Pay and Gamble features are absent.
The jazzy ambient sounds are interesting, and the sound effects (like the woman catching her breath, screeching car, and coins jingling) are realistic. The animated 3D graphics are impressive, particularly the spouse inserting the ring onto his woman’s finger, gold casting, and the silhouette of the cityscape in the background.
