Released in September 2021 by Just for the Win on the Microgaming network, Big Boom Riches offers a somewhat simplistic slots gaming experience, lots of explosions, and a bonus round to keep you spinning while you mine for gold in the old west.

Players can pick up on the rules in a heartbeat, meaning you can focus on the satisfying explosions, the old-timey banjo soundtrack, and racking up wins while trying for that 5,000 times your stake maximum payout. The gameplay of Big Boom Riches grows on you despite it not breaking any new ground in either theme or visuals.

Big Boom Riches

If you re looking for a new slots game, and you re up for a western mining adventure, join the scraggly-toothed old-timer on your search for gold and big payouts.

Big Boom Riches Gameplay

Big Boom Riches plays as a five-reel, three-row slots board. The main objective is to land at least three matching symbols or wilds from left to right, starting from the far-left reel, which triggers a cash prize and an explosion. When symbols match and explode, new symbols drop on the reel, with new wins being triggered. An explosion also occurs whenever a TNT Wild lands, wiping out all symbols touching the Wild with new symbols dropping in a rolling reels fashion. Wins happen at about a 25% clip, and bets range from 20 cents to $50. Sounds simple, right?

Symbols include:

  • J, Q, K, and A,
  • purple, green, orange, and pink gemstones,
  • Wild, TNT Wild, and X Wild,
  • Miner Scatter and Miner Free Spin Scatter.

The gameplay at Big Boom Riches is quick, and explosions happen almost every spin, which is what tends to keep you addicted to this game, along with the rolling reels dropping new symbols down on each spin. The banjo music and the likeable gap-toothed old-timer cheering you on lends a nice atmosphere.

Bonus Round and Free Spins

Big Boom Riches scatterThe bonus round gets triggered when you land three Miner Scatters anywhere on the board at the same time. When this happens, the background changes to an underground mining scene, the banjo music tempo speeds up, and you get nine free spins, with the multiplier increasing every time you land an X Wild symbol. The old miner character becomes particularly vocal during the bonus round.

You can also buy the free spins bonus round.

Big Boom Riches isn t anything new or particularly inventive, but it is fun to play, the visuals are nice, and it s easy to get lulled in by the explosions and cascading symbols when you hit on a win.

The graphics are simple but effective. There are only two main background scenes, one above ground in the Rocky Mountains and one below ground in a mining scene during the bonus round.

Big Boom Riches wildWith the gameplay being so simple, the designers at Just for the Win could have added a few more interesting touches to the backgrounds. A smouldering campfire, rushing brook or waterfall, or even the odd roadrunner scampering around would have made Big Boom Riches a little more visually appealing. Still, what the game does offer isn t bad, and after a few rounds, you ll find yourself immersed in wins and explosions.

The 5,000 times max payout is just ok and could have been higher.

Final Word

Big Boom Riches is a solid if unspectacular take on the old western gold mining theme. The simple rules and gameplay mean beginners will enjoy this one without having to think too much, and the high volatility and max payout will keep more experienced players spinning as well.

What the game lacks in innovation or variety is made up for by a solid experience, decent visuals, a catchy banjo soundtrack, and satisfying explosions on every hit.
