Slot Captain Boom — Game Review

Boom Pirates Slot Review

Ahoy there! Foxium commandeers the reels, lifts the anchor and sets their sails for the seven seas in their slot, Boom Pirates!

Vast treasure awaits nestled amongst randomly activated features, captivating free spins, and a mechanic that is a similar yet alternative to the famous Megaways – Needless to say, it’s a pirate’s life for me.

Foxium is a relatively small developer compared to some of the big names out there that you might be used to, but with their engrossing mechanic and the might of Microgaming’s platform behind them, it certainly hasn’t stopped them from making a splash with this gripping and engaging slot.

Boom Pirates Slot Theme

There is an upbeat feel to Boom Pirates – The visuals on the right consist of an island covered in palm trees, a small wooden town and a treasure chest. On the left, you can see the deep blue sea accompanied by a Galleon, with none other than the classic black flag including skull and crossbones flying high!

This coupled with the pirate style music in the background creates an immersive experience – You can almost visualise the wind at your back, and the prospect of fortune being near, with the latter potentially being a truer statement.

Boom Pirates Slot: Betting and Symbols

Betting options vary more than your average slot, with the minimum bet on all lines being £0.10 and rising to £100.00 on the upper end, so there’s definitely something for all.

There is also the option to “Foxify” your bet which increases the odds of triggering the Boom Pirates feature. The “Foxify” feature however only applies to the base game, and it will cost an extra 50% of your stake per spin to utilise.

In terms of the highest paying symbols, the captain of the ship, Mary, will be your top paying symbol. In order, this is then followed by her first mate Ben, the parrot symbol, the cannon symbol, and finally the barrel symbol respectively.

The lower paying symbols consist of A,K,Q,J,10.

Boom Pirates Slot: The Base Game and Features

Kicking off with the basics, 3 or more matching symbols on consecutive reels from left to right will form a win – This applies to all symbols other than the bonus symbols, “Yo!” and “Ho!”. The base game has 5 reels.

If you are lucky, on any non-winning spin there is a chance for the Captain Mary to come swinging into the reels on a rope and randomly start slashing symbols which will then transform into a 5 of a kind win! It’s also possible to get other winning combinations in addition to the 5 of a kind..

Unlike most slots, Boom Pirates doesn’t actually have a wild symbol. Unlike most Megaways style games as well, the symbols don’t cascade either, and it doesn’t even appear to look anything like a Megaways style game at first glance. You might find yourself asking at this point “well, what is all the fuss about?”

Avast ye landlubbers, all is explained below…

Boom Pirates Slot Feature

The Boom Pirates feature is certainly similar to a Megaway, but also very different indeed – Firstly, Boom Pirates call it “Wonderways”.

When the random Boom Pirate feature activates, the camera pans out from your usual reels to reveal reels on a much larger 6×9 scale, with the extra symbols being blocked off by silver skulls.

At this point, for those of you with the volume turned up, you’ll hear a loud call from the Galleon shouting “Boom Pirates!”, and the ship cannons will proceed to open fire onto the reels. The amount of silver skulls destroyed is random, however when destroyed, they will reveal the usual symbols beneath them on the now larger reels, increasing the paylines and ways to win.

For those particularly lucky pirates out there, this actually has the potential to destroy all the silver skulls, which reveals the entirety of the massive reels with a gargantuan 10,077,696 ways to win – You read that correctly, it isn’t a typo! Blow me down, that’s a lot of plunder – But that’s not all…

Boom Pirates Slot Free Spins

The 3 scatter “Yo!”, “Ho!” and “Yo!” symbols appearing on reels 1, 3 and 5 will activate the free spins feature, and initially award 10 free spins. Any subsequent combinations of the same during the free spins will award a further 5 spins.

The gem of the free spins feature is that whenever the Boom Pirates feature is triggered, and the silver skulls blocking off the symbols are destroyed, they will remain destroyed for the duration of the free spins.

As you can imagine, this gives the free spins some huge potential, and definitely gives the bonus potential to go out with a bang – Or should I say, boom!

Bonus Buy

Another worthy mention is that if you are a non UK player, you will have the option to buy your way into the Free Spins feature. This will cost you x100 your current stake, and will award 10 Free Spins.

Boom Pirates Slot Review: Our Verdict

Boom pirates is an entertaining game with a certain fond familiarity to it, especially for those of you that are a fan of Megaways games, That said, it also has enough of a twist for it to keep things captivating and different to what you are used to.

It doesn’t feel like a grind at all in the base game, with the potential for the Mary’s Swashbuckling Attack or Boom Pirate Bonus to activate at any moment. This certainly doesn’t take anything away from the bonus Free Spins either, as when it does hit, the potential of 10,077,696 ways to win coupled with a jackpot of x3800 your stake is sure to raise some pulses!

DraftKings XFL: Championship Game Breakdown

The XFL’s return season closes Saturday night with the championship game kicking off at 8 p.m. EDT. The D.C. Defenders are 6.5-point favorites over the Arlington Renegades, with a game total of 46.5. The matchup pairs contrasting styles, as the Defenders were the highest-scoring offense in the league during the regular season while Arlington was the lowest. Conversely, the Renegades allowed only 19.4 points per game, while the Defenders allowed opponents to score 24 points per game. Given that, we can likely expect DC to try to push the offensive pace while Arlington will try to play a slow-paced game and limit the chances for the Defenders to put their explosive offense to work.


Jordan Ta’amu ($10,800) was named Offensive Player of the Year and averaged 20.9 DK points per game. As would be expected based on the introduction, Arlington was among the better defenses in the league against the pass, so it wouldn’t be surprising to see Ta’amu slowed a bit. He is priced at $16,800 for the captain slot (1.5x points), the highest of the slate.

Luis Perez ($10,000) took over under center for the Renegades midway through the season. He’s been a boom-bust option and delivered an excellent performance in the semifinal matchup against the Roughnecks, throwing for three touchdowns and 289 yards. The Defenders were the most generous defensive unit to passing attacks this season, so Perez should be in a position to post another strong performance.

Ta’amu is the safer option, but we aren’t likely to see one of his top-end performances. Perez brings a lot more volatility, but the matchup and his performance against Houston last week are reasons to believe he will play well this week.

Running Back

Both teams have workhorse backs that deserve significant consideration. Abram Smith ($10,600) has consistently been the top-priced back during the season and his high cost has continued as he’s sandwiched between the quarterbacks. Volume and role will certainly be on his side, but Arlington allowed the second-fewest rushing yards during the regular season. In his game against the Renegades in the regular season, Smith managed only 56 total yards and 8.6 DK points.

De’Veon Smith ($8,400) comes at a more palatable price, but the Defenders were the toughest matchup for running backs during the regular season. We can expect him to have a massive workload, particularly if Leddie Brown ($6,600) remains sidelined by a knee injury.

Even in a showdown format, I have no interest in looking beyond these two players at the position. Both of the run defenses in this game are stout so rostering a player that is projected to get limited touches isn’t likely to be a profitable decision.

Wide Receiver/Tight End

The D.C. receiving corps features are a trio of interesting options. Lucky Jackson ($9,600) is the steadiest among those, as he tied for the team lead in targets while leading the team in both receptions and touchdowns. However, paying up for him and one of the two running backs is difficult to work out from a salary perspective, so it may be more palatable to find pay-down options among pass catchers. Chris Blair ($8,200) isn’t cheap by any means, but he offers more explosive ability than Jackson. Despite seeing six fewer targets than Jackson, Blair out-gained him by 21 yards. Finally, Josh Hammond ($7,600) matched Jackson for the team-lead in targets, but he was an underneath option and lacks upside.

Things have changed rapidly on the Arlington side. After dominating targets and being the steadiest producer for most of the season, Sal Cannella ($7,400) has taken on a lesser role in recent weeks. Meanwhile, JaVonta Payton ($6,000) emerged out of nowhere to post five receptions for 121 yards and two touchdowns in the semifinal round. It’s unclear whether he’ll carry that over, but he’s among the cheapest viable skill-position players available. Arlington is a run-heavy offense, which means that Tyler Vaughns ($6,400) and Brandon Arconado ($5,200) will be frustratingly inconsistent.

The Defenders ($4,600) started the season as the premier fantasy defense, though they posted three or fewer DK points in three of the final four regular season games. The Renegades’ offense isn’t particularly explosive, however, and Perez is prone to make mistakes. They’re a fine play, particularly if it opens up salary for a coveted skill-position player.

The Renegades ($4,200) have been a bit more consistent across the second half of the season but still offer upside. Ultimately, the choice of whether to roster them likely will come down to your prediction for the game. If the Renegades are going to pull a significant upset, they’ll likely need contributions from their defense.

When considering rostering kickers, remember that there are no extra points. Taylor Russolino ($1,000) is a decent option for extreme savings, as he’s made multiple kicks in four consecutive games. Matt McCrane ($1,000) did so in three of seven regular-season games.
