Strap yourself in, put some cool shades on and prepare yourself for Sonic Boom, a class video slot from Microgaming. Although the three reel format may put some people off, let us assure you that the inclusion of a two tiered paytable and multiplying wilds set this aside from many other classic slots. The prizes are equally impressive with a 2,500 coin jackpot which can reach the dizzy heights of £12,500.
Sonic Boom Slot Theme
The reels, paytable and logo are all shown on the same screen which eliminates the need to switch to any other screen for important information. There’s plenty of room for the large log despite there being multiple functions in one area.
The logo shows a cartoon jet breaking the sound barrier and leaving a mottled ‘sonic boom’ text behind it. The boom part reminds us of the text used in the hit video game doom as it uses a pixilated design.
The jet also makes an appearance as an icon as it joins logos, bars and cherries on the reels and paytable.
The paytable provides a visual aid to see the various prizes and combinations. These are marked by an audible ‘whoosh’ and a flashing icon on the paytable. It’s all very retro, but that’s completely in keeping with the classic slot theme.
Betting Options and More Functions
You can use the slot for as little as 0.10 or ramp up wagers to a maximum £/$/€10 which means you can enjoy the fast jet action with a bet which suits you.
A button marked ‘expert’ adds auto play options to the reels. After pressing this button you will notice spin 10x, spin 5x and auto play options are available with all other options remaining the same as the regular control area.
Sonic Boom Slot Features
The circular Sonic Boom logo not only awards jackpots but also is wild for other icons. Whenever a paying combination is made using one icon the prize will be doubled and if two wilds are used the resulting prize will be quadrupled.
Our Take on Sonic Boom
The title is daring, the theme is too but you won’t be blown out of your seat by the format. Three reel slots aren’t meant to do that, but the addition of wilds and multipliers do provide an additional element of excitement when compared to similar slots. If you like themed classic slots with a pinch of spice then Sonic Boom is for you.
