New Booming Games Online Slot: ShowMaster
Booming Games isn’t the kind of online game developer that releases a new game each week. Its creative team works on making unique games that stand out from their competitors. And its latest release for Aussie online casinos, ShowMaster, does just that.
With eight features and a variety of different combinations of wheel spins, ShowMaster keeps players consistently entertained.
Tons of Action
When Booming Games prepared to release ShowMaster, it noted in its press release that the new slot game is not for the “faint hearted,” that it is “super volatile.”
A first look shows a 5×3 slot with 20 paylines, and the grid is surrounded by Hollywood lights, ready to showcase a payout as a game show would for a winning contestant. The background music presents the mystery of a game show competition waiting to hit a feature, and there is even an audience track that celebrates wins.
However, one will notice the wheel at the top of the screen. This is where it gets interesting. That wheel contains eight different features, and the inner wheel offers six different payouts.
Booming Games Director of Product Shane Cotter noted, “This game will be one of the most enjoyed games this summer. It’s packed full of features, is visually stunning, and offers the opportunity to win some seriously big payouts!”
ShowMaster Payout Information
The big news is that a player can win up to 5,000 his or her bet. That may be quite the payout depending upon how much the player is willing to risk on each spin. Risks are inherent in this high-volatility game, though, with a 95.5% theoretical RTP.
The options for betting start at $0.20 as the minimum bet and increase to $0.40, $0.60, $1.00, $2, $4, $6, $10, $20, $40, and $60. The max bet is $100 per spin.
As for the payouts on the grid, if the bet is set at $0.20, these symbols will pay as follows for five on a payline:
- Wild = $5.00
- Red seven = $4.00
- Gold bell = $3.00
- Cherries = $2.00
- Lemon = $1.00
- Letter A = $0.50
- Letters K, Q, or J = $0.25 each
ShowMaster Features and Gameplay
There is a lot happening in ShowMaster, so let’s start with the basic features.
Players want to spin the wheel. They will want to see two bonus symbols land – one each on the first and fifth reels – to trigger the Wheel of Fortune spin. (Side note: The bonus symbol also serves as a wild symbol. Bonuses and wilds can substitute for all other symbols.)
Before the wheel spins, the host of the show will appear on a stage and spin the Wheel of Fortune as he says, “Showtime!” He then claps for the player, no matter what the they hit.
The wheel will stop on one of the following features:
- Four (4) free spins
- Eight (8) free spins
- Instant prize: smaller wheel spins to award 5x, 10x, 25x, 50x, 100x, or 5000x the original bet
- Wild multipliers: converts wilds on the reels to multipliers of 2x, 3x, and/or 5x
- Bursting wilds: converts up to 8 symbols into wilds
- Royal upgrade: upgrades all minor symbols into the letter A
- Major upgrade: upgrades all minor symbols into major symbols
- Wild reels: expands wild symbols into wild reels
It is important to know that free spins can be retriggered during that bonus round of free spins.
Also, symbols in the “major” category are the seven, bell, cherries, and lemon. Minor symbols are the letters A, K, Q, and J.
The symbols are reminiscent of a retro slot machine, and the theme of the game transports players back to the days of good television game shows. But the vibrant colors and number of features speaks to Booming Games’ ability to combine it all into a new hit game for a new generation.
Where to Play ShowMaster
Booming Games is one of the few developers that offers players the opportunity to try the game for play-money action before playing for real-money on your favorite Aussie online casino. The “games” section of its website offers the chance to play any of their games. And for those reading this before ShowMaster is released during the last week of June 2020 at your favorite Aussie casino, you can still play in preview mode for free on the Booming Games website.
King Johnnie casino, the number one Australian pokies site this month, along with Joka Room, always promotes Booming Games’ latest releases. Both feature ShowMaster in their promotions section. Top-rated CasinoNic also features ShowMaster, as do Playamo Casino, Bonza Spins, Pokies Parlour, and Woo Casino. Joe Fortune is likely to carry the game in the near future, too.
