Booming Games launched Classico in February 2017. This game is classified under the developer’s bitcoin slot games. The images in the background of the Classico’s grid remind of Booming Seven Deluxe (December 2016); the classical element is replicated in Booming Seven (November 2015). Classico uses BARs, like Booming Bananas, Booming Bars, Wild Diamond 7s, and Disco Bar 7s.
Quick Hit Platinum from Bally, Triple Magic from Microgaming, and Blue Diamond from Red Tiger Gaming are rivals. The Classico players match three, four, or five symbols.
Classico Game Characteristics
Classico has a spacious 5X3 grid, alongside twenty adjustable pay lines. Nine symbols are used in Classico. The special symbols are two: a golden-brown “W” (Wild and substitute) decorated with cherries, a slice of watermelon, purple plum, and lemon; and a speckled golden-yellow bell (Scatter).
The ordinary symbols are seven: a stack of four purple BARs with a purple fruit tag; a stack of three green BARs with a cherries tag; a red 7; a blue 7; a purple 7; a stack of two blue BARs with a watermelon tag; and a single red BAR with a lemon tag.
The loading page shows Classico’s three main features: the free spins-activating Scatter, the “Gamble” feature, and the stacked Wilds. Players make the necessary adjustments using the icons along the bottom of the grid. The cog at the bottom left facilitates the bet per line, active pay lines, and auto play adjustments; an alternative is pressing “Bet Max” to bet the highest amount allowable.
Under the “bet per line”, the coin values are: $0.01, $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. Both the total bets and possible regular payouts either drop or rise according to the selected bet per line and the set number of pay lines. For example, a single pay line has the $0.01 minimum bet. Ten pay lines have this average betting range: $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. Bet sizes when using all 20 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 (maximum bet).
In terms of Classico payouts, the $200.00, as an example, has the highest payouts range in the pay table. Here are the maximum payouts for three, four, and five matching symbols, respectively. The “W” Wild pays $400.00, $4000.00, and $10000.00. The bell pays $2000.00, $10000.00, and $400000.00. Either the purple quadruple BARs or the green triple BARs offer $50.00, $200.00, and $1000.00. Either a red 7, or blue 7, or purple 7 pays $200.00, $1000.00, and $2000.00. Finally, either the blue double BARs or the red single BAR pays $10.00, $100.00, and $500.00.
More than three bells offer ten free games. During the gambling side game, players guess (by tapping the red or black circles) at the red/black color of an upcoming playing card. The cutoff for gambling is $10000.00, or ten correct back-to-back predictions. Classico lacks a progressive jackpot.
A turbo feature would have improved the Classico software, which is sluggish when playing the main game and the gambling side game. The sounds are interesting. The graphics are both old school and innovative, especially, the ultra-modern casino hall in the backdrop.
