Booming Games Tops New Releases with Sphinx Fortune

Booming Games is one of those online casino developers that seems to expand with each year. Each game seems to bring better features and graphics than the last. Luckily, quite a few Aussie online casinos carry these games, as many of them tend to be wildly popular.

As the company planned for a big 2021, it had to do so with the coronavirus pandemic still prohibiting gatherings like ICE London. Without being able to showcase their upcoming releases to the industry there, Booming Games released this video with special sneak peeks.

Released in January: Book of Tombs

The main character in Book of Tombs aims to find treasures of Ancient Egypt. There are precious jars preserved through the ages and gold-plated statues, all holding the secret to fortune. The soundtrack easily melts into the background but delivers suspense similar to that of an action film.

As for the basics of the game, the RTP (return-to-player) is lower than normal but the number of features and max win potential make up for that.

  • 5 reels, 3 rows
  • 10 paylines
  • 42% theoretical RTP
  • 5,504x maximum win
  • $0.10 min bet – $75 max bet
  • High volatility

In this game, the Wild and Scatter are the same golden book, and it is one of the highest paying symbols at 200x for five on a payline. The only one higher is that of the Indiana Jones-type character, with pays at 500x for five on a payline. The other major symbols are the animal mask, the god mask, and the golden vase.

Some of the key options in Book of Tombs are the ability to easily start 50 automatic spins, bet max, and turn the sound effects and background music off or on. This game also enables left-handed play.

Book of Tombs Features

The aforementioned Wild/Scatter symbol is one of the most lucrative features, as it affords the player eight free spins. This can also retrigger during the bonus round.

At the beginning of the free spins, one symbol is chosen at random to be an Expanding symbol. The game may actually choose up to nine different ones. Every time the player retriggers the free spins, another symbol becomes an Expanding one. Their expansions can cover all reel positions, and they need not be next to each other to create a winning combination.

The Gamble feature is one common in many Booming Games titles. It allows the player to bet after any win in order to try to double or quadruple the win. The downside is that a losing bet erases the win entirely.

If the player does want to gamble, they can try to double their win by choosing red or black on the “Colour Pays” side. If the hope is to quadruple the win, they can choose from one of the four card suits on the “Suit Pays” side.

Released in January: Cash Pig

The Cash Pig is the player’s ticket to Las Vegas. From the iconic casinos to images of private jets and fancy cars, everything about the game exemplifies Sin City. The Eiffel Tower of the Paris Casino is front and center, with others like the Flamingo and Caesars making an appearance as well. The music is a bit of a piano-based jazzy number that feels very “Las Vegas.”

Again, the RTP is close to 95%, which isn’t great, but the max win and exciting features keep players coming back. This is also not the game for lowest of the low-rollers, as the minimum bet is $0.30, not the usual $0.10.

  • 5 reels, 4 rows
  • 30 paylines
  • 11% theoretical RTP
  • 8,000x maximum win
  • $0.30 min bet – $60 max bet
  • High volatility

The major symbols are the private jet, sports car, watch, and diamond ring. The payouts can be a bit lopsided, with the private jet paying $40 for five on a payline (at the minimum bet of $0.30) but only $1.75 for four of that same symbol on a payline. Even so, the payouts for the symbols can double if they are golden.

Some of the key options in Book of Tombs are the ability to easily start 50 automatic spins, bet max, and turn the sound effects and background music off or on. This game also enables left-handed play.

Cash Pig Features

The Wild, which is a sparkling diamond, substitutes for the aforementioned symbols. It cannot take the place of the Scatter or any Gold Coin.

The Piggy Bank is the signature feature of Cash Pig. It happens during the base game when gold coins can land on the first, second, third, and fourth reels. Each coin will display a dollar value or multiplier, the latter of which can range from 1x to 50x. The key to cashing out is to find the gold Cash Pig on the fifth reel, which allows the player to collect all winnings from the coins.

The champagne glasses are the Scatter symbols, which may land on the first, third, and fifth reels. Three of them in total award 12 free spins. If the Scatters appear again in the bonus spins, the player wins an additional six free spins.

During the free spins, there are two things to watch above the reels. On the left is the “Eliminated” box that shows the 10, J, Q, K, and A symbols. Each time one forms a win, an X marks it out on the “Eliminated” box so as not to appear again. And when those symbols disappear, cascading tiles create another chance for a win.

Again, during the free spins, the box above the reels on the right is “Upgraded.” This works in reverse of the low symbols. If a major symbol appears in a winning combination, it will upgrade to its golden version. As mentioned earlier, that doubles its payout value.

Just Released: Sphinx Fortune Hold and Win

In a different way from Book of Tombs, Sphinx Fortune puts players directly into Ancient Egypt, complete with detailed hieroglyphics on the columns and gold statutes that literally sparkle. The music is an ode to the time period, but the graphics are more impressive than anything.

Despite the RTP being under 95%, the game does seem to be a bit more payout-friendly than most high-volatility games.

  • 5 reels, 3-4 rows
  • 576 betways
  • 32% theoretical RTP
  • 8,500x maximum win
  • $0.10 min bet – $50 max bet
  • High volatility

The big payouts are not in the basic symbols, which is why the highest-paying one – the Egyptian queen – only pays 5x the bet. The animal gods are also among the major symbols. And there are no numbers or letters as minor symbols, they’re card suits on stone in hieroglyphic form.

Sphinx Fortune Features

One of the most unique and exciting features in Sphinx Fortune is the Nudging Wild Multiplier. When the golden mummy case, which is the Wild) appears, it can substitute for all other symbols except the Scatter and Bonus. When the wild appears on any spin, it starts somewhere on the reel. It will then nudge down, little by little, to cover the reel. As it does, it adds a multiplier for each nudge. That means the payout for that line can be up to 4x.

There are free spins as well. Three Scatter symbols on the middle reels will award eight free spins, which can then retrigger again during the free spins round.

During free spins, the Nudging Wild Multipliers are sticky, meaning they stay in place for the rest of the round. They can also award unlimited multipliers at this time.

The Pyramid Hold and Win feature is the highlight of the game, so much so that Booming Games put it in the title. When the Bonus symbol lands on the two outside reels, the Pyramid Bonus begins. The three respins on the special grid begin in a search for coins of various amounts. Each time a new coin appears, the respin count resets back to three.

When the spins finish, the game tallies them into a win total. At that time, the screen cracks open to reveal a multiplier wheel. That spins to multiply the win total up to 10x.
