Northern Boom Slot Review

Belatra Games welcomes you to the north pole in this quite simply, wonderful game. Don’t worry though, the wildlife isn’t extinct but it may seem so as the cartoonish characters won’t scare you at all.

Straight away, players will note the childish layout of this unique slot that easily stands out from the rest of the competition. It just is so playful and yet so interesting. Let’s start with the visuals. The reels appear in front of icy columns with pieces of iceberg hanging from the top. On top of the reel set, you’ll notice the 4 progressive slot jackpots.

The visuals reminded us of Amusnet Interactive’s (EGT) “Penguin Style” but regarding the gameplay, the slot weirdly plays like Pragmatic Play’s “Aztec Blaze”. The north pole theme used to be much more popular in the old days but now games like this one are a luxury for those of us who have loads of experience with slot machines.

Well, if Club Penguin turned into a gambling game it would most likely be Northern Boom. If you like the playful style then you’ll love this title immediately. The colors, visuals, features, everything screams “PLAY ME” and that’s exactly what we did.

How to play Northern Boom

This game does partly follow the fundamental characteristics found in the majority of Belatra Games but with a modern twist. Symbols of penguins with sexy underwear might look weird at first but you’ll get used to it fairly quickly. In fact, you’ll like it more as you get into the session.

The slot is based on the traditional 3-row, 5-reel arrangement which, if it wasn’t for the rest of the game, would make things dull. The UI follows the same old pattern as you can easily access the basic controls (spin, bet adjustment, autoplay with various parameters) that are neatly organized at the base of the screen. The table of information and various settings are located at the top right corner.

Given the 25 payline format, bets start at 0.25$ but you can stake as much as 50$ per spin. Moving on to the more technical stuff, Northern Boom is a slot of medium to high variance meaning that despite the playful looks, wins won’t come easy but they will be rather big.

As for the theoretical return to the player, that number sits at 94.14% (base game) which is rather low. However, if you take into account the progressive jackpots then the digits skyrocket. The max win “stands” proudly at 4.000x.

As we move deeper into the gameplay, it’s about time we tackled the symbols. There are 8 regular ones with just 3 low-paying (shovel, anchor, bottle) and 5 high-paying ones that come in the form of a crab, a rather sensual penguin, a seal, a submarine, and a fish wearing a fur hat. The special symbols are:

  • Wild – Represented by the “wild bear” sign, the wild (also one of the two highest paying) symbol acts as a substitute for creating or improving upon winning paylines.
  • Scatter – The polar bear is the game’s scatter symbol. Getting at least 3 of them will trigger the free spins mode.

Northern Boom Bonus Modes

Getting a reward, meaning entry to a bonus mode, isn’t as difficult as in other games since there are not one, but two available ones.

Northern Boom Free Spins

Players will be given 5 initial spins when the bonus is activated by getting 3 scatter symbols. Landing 3 more will reward you with 3 more spins up to a maximum of 101.

During the free spins, all 3 middle reels will be occupied by the same gigantic symbol increasing your chances of a big payout.

Northern Boom Bonus

6 or more credit symbols will trigger the respective bonus mode. This is your classic respin feature. You get 3 spins that reset with any new credit or jackpot symbol that lands. You can win 4 jackpots with the “Mega” labeled one worth 2.000x your bet.
