What Is Boom Galaxies™?

Boom Galaxies™ is the second online pokies game in New Zealand from Microgaming to feature the lovable cast of alien creatures (Jeff, Pip, Pap and Pop), set in the same universe as the previous title, Boom Galaxy™. In the world of books and movies, it’s quite normal to find sequels and spin-offs, follow-ups and more. Similarly, in  online casino games, we often see the same characters or universes of previous titles being returned to, whether as a means of expanding on an existing story, or exploring other avenues within it. This is a trend we have seen more than just a few times in the past, with examples including Avalon and Avalon II, Thunderstruck and Thunderstruck II and more. As such, Boom Galaxies™ takes the best of what made the original Boom Galaxy™ so popular, and simply expands upon it, giving players more of what they want, and less of what they don’t. We take a hearty look at what this mobile casino game has to offer players in New Zealand, and beyond!

Theme And Design

Similar to the first title, Boom Galaxies™ is designed to emulate the look and feel of outer space – in a tongue-and-cheek fashion, of course. The reels are set against an infinite, starry background, which certainly helps set the mood and tone of the game, giving the impression of endless possibilities and opportunities. The audio accompaniment, both that which plays in the background and during the animation effects, is a most fitting combination of futuristic and familiar, and exactly what you would expect from a game that’s set in the great beyond. In keeping things both exciting but also simple, the design and presentation of this online pokies game are quite straightforward: there are no over-the-top cutscenes or intricate mechanics to try and get the hang of. You simply fire it up, place your wagers and spin the reels – nothing to it!

Paylines and Bet Sizes

Boom Galaxies™ makes use of a standard 3x5-reel structure, which should be familiar to most fans of online pokies in New Zealand. There are 9 fixed paylines, and players can choose to play with either coins or credits. Some players definitely prefer to use credits, as they tend to give a clearer indication of what’s happening in their casino balance, but it really just comes down to personal tastes. If you’re looking at coins, the bet sizes range from between 0.09 to 45 coins, while the credits range maxes out at 45.00. Admittedly, this isn’t very high, which means that those players who like to bet high might be a little put off, especially when they’re used to placing wagers with triple digits. That being said, even high-rollers are sure to enjoy kicking back and having a few light-hearted spins on this title, where the max payout potential is a very decent 150 000.00  credits. If you’d like to, you can make use of the Autoplay feature, which means you will be able to sit back and let the reels spin on their own.

A Word On Volatility

Boom Galaxies™ is considered a game with ‘high volatility’, which means that it has the propensity to pay out less often than a low or medium volatility game, but when it does, it is usually in higher increments. This fact actually balances out the low betting range quite nicely.

The symbols you will encounter across the reels of this online pokies game in New Zealand might be familiar to you if you played the original, and they include the wacky cast of characters: the hyperactive (yet clumsy) Jeff, the gentle giant Pop, the one-eyed Pip, the charismatic Pap and the bold Pep. Each character has been lovingly designed to stand out from the rest, and you’ll quickly come to recognise their differences as you play. The lower values are represented by various, different coloured crystals, in shades of purple, red, blue, green, aquamarine and amber. There are two other crystal-like symbols, easily identifiable as the Wild and Scatter, respectively – thanks to those words being emblazoned on them. Each of these has a special function, which we will take a look at below.

Far Out Features

While many mobile casino games and online pokies in New Zealand might come with a host of intricate and interactive bonus features, this is not the case with Boom Galaxies™, and we see this as a good thing. While some players are drawn to complex bonus rounds, this is not the case with everybody. For many players, the pleasure of playing online casino games comes from their simplicity and familiarity, and Boom Galaxies™ shines in this regard. The burning red crystal symbol is Wild, which means that is has the ability to take the place of other symbols on the reels, as a means of increasing your chances of hitting winning combinations. Any wins you incur as a result of a Wild substitution will double, so it’s a great symbol to look out for. The only symbol the Wild cannot substitute for is the Scatter, denoted by a green crystal with a ring around it. Landing 3, 4 or 5 of this Scatter symbol will trigger a round of 15 Free Spins, during which all wins will be tripled, and which can be re-triggered if you land more of them during such a round. Included in the game is what’s called a Free Spins Thermometer. This meter simply indicates the probability of triggering a Free Spins round, and adds an extra element of entertainment to the game.

Mobile Magic

As with any Microgaming title these days, Boom Galaxies™ has been optimised to run on mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets. As such, there is no compromise on the quality of the gameplay, even on platforms with smaller screens. Just be sure to have a stable internet connection, or enough mobile data to run the game without interruption.
