The Bomb Bonanza base game is simple. It plays out on a structure of 5 reels, 5 rows, and 50 paylines. Aligning at least three matching symbols from left to right, starting with the leftmost reel, constitutes a win. If you win on different paylines, all wins are added and paid together. The wild symbol is a crucial character in the base game as it can appear on all reels and substitute other symbols except the scatter.
It is no big surprise Pragmatic Play offers great bonanzas on this game with unique features. The expanding wilds feature occurs whenever a wild symbol hits all wilds on the screen. The hit wilds can expand top-right, top-left, down-right, or down-left in squares of 1X1 and 5X5. They replace all existing symbols on the screen, making it relatively easy to spot matching symbols.
The Bomb Bonanza bonuses start with a free spins round which activates when you hit 3 free spins symbol anywhere on reels. They award 6 bonus spins. As you enjoy the free spins, the generous Gold Nugget symbol appears.
Whenever the Gold Nugget symbol shows up on the screen in the bonus spins round, it accumulates on a progressive meter feature and eventually explodes. The remaining symbols fall to the bottom of the screen, and any empty position is filled with the falling symbols.
Players have different levels with various multiplier potential in the progressive feature courtesy of the accumulating Gold Nuggets.
• Level 1. Wilds expand with 1X1 squares.
• Level 2. Accumulate 5 Gold Nuggets to reach level 2. You get 4 bonus spins, and wilds expand in a 2X2 pattern.
• Level 3. Collect 5 more Gold Nuggets to reach level 3 in which you get 2 more bonus spins plus wilds expanding in a 3X3 pattern.
• Level 4. Players similarly need to collect 5 Gold Nuggets to get 2 more free spins while wilds expand with a 4X4 pattern.
• Level 5. Collect 3 gold nuggets to reach this level. You enjoy 1 more free spin while wilds expand on a 5X5 pattern.
Bomb Bonanza is a pretty easy-to-play game. It has a beautiful and easy-going design—the gameplay centers on spreading the wilds. Leveled-up wilds expand in various directions, with higher levels translating to bigger wild patterns and higher chances of matching similar payout symbols. Nevertheless, collecting golden nuggets is the right path toward hitting the game's maximum payout of 2,015X.
