About The Game

4ThePlayer have established themselves as a provider that chooses to go in an entirely new direction, rather than following the crowd. They have previously brought us games such as 6 Wild Sharks and 2 Gods: Zeus vs Thor, which both established this pattern. 6 Wild Sharks put the slot in the hands of the player, allowing players to choose the bonus they received, allocating up to 6 wilds on the reels, in exchange for forfeiting spins. 2 Gods: Zeus vs Thor splits the symbols on the reels into red and blue, and gives players the chance to double their win if they choose which symbol will create the next win.

The newest offering from 4ThePlayer continues this trend, with 123 Boom. Their CEO Andrew Porter states: “I have always loved cascading games but find them frustrating as cascades rarely bring in any better wins and end very quickly and disappointingly. I wanted to change that and so have revolutionised this mechanic to give more cascades and chained wins than ever before, with frequent big wins after the initial win.” As a result, 4ThePlayer are bringing us Slot Slider™, with the potential of 107 wins from one spin, and multipliers up to x99 in the bonus.

The RTP of 123 BOOM! is 96.44% , with 1,024 ways to win and medium to high volatility.

Paytable

The 123 BOOM! pay table is made up of 10 symbols. At the lower end of the pay table, the wheel and telescope pay 0.8 and 1x bet respectively for 5 of a kind, and the map and skull and crossbones flag pay 1.2 and 1.5x bet, again for 5 of a kind. Swords and guns both pay 2x bet for 5 of a kind, and 5 of a kind gold coins pay 2.5x bet. The treasure chests and two pirates make up the premium symbols, with the treasure chest and female pirate paying 3x and 5x bet respectively, for 5 of a kind. The top paying symbol is the male pirate, paying a whopping 20x bet for 5 of a kind.

Gameplay

As mentioned before, 123 Boom! says goodbye to the cascades that we know from Megaways slots, and instead introduces us to the Slot Slider™ mechanic. There is an option for Slide Spin or Top Spin. Within Slide Spin, reels spin from right to left, wins are removed from the reels, and symbols then slide in from right to left in their place, with wins paying from left to right. In Top Spin, the reels spin from top to bottom, symbols are removed and replaced, and wins pay from bottom to top. In both modes, there is a potential for 107 wins from one single spin, and payouts and game features are unchanged. Also on the reels are Cannonball Wilds, which blasts away symbols until a win is formed, or they reach the end of the reel. Playfully, if a wild is part of a win it counts 1-2-3 BOOM! on the reels. Cannonball Wilds substitute for all symbols except Scatters.

Whilst playing 123 BOOM! players may notice that certain wins do not pay out, and this is because only the highest win in view is paid. If multiple wins have the same payout then the highest number of symbols, followed by the highest “of a kind” win, followed by the symbol with the best pay table payouts is paid. To trigger the Bonus feature, 3 scatter symbols are required. Scatters are easily recognisable, with a cannon and “Bonus” written on each.

Bonus

After landing 3 Scatter Symbols, the bonus starts. The 3 cannons required to land the bonus wait at the right hand side, and the bonus starts when the first cannon fires a wild onto one of the reels at random. This wild acts the same as a Cannonball Wilds, blasting symbols away until wins are formed. Each wining combination increases the win multiplier, which starts at x2, and has the potential to reach x99 within the bonus. When no more wins are possible, the second cannon fires another Cannonball Wild onto another reel at random, forming as many more wins as possible. The bonus ends when all 3 cannons have been used and no wilds remain to blast onto the reels, however Scatter Symbols continue to land within the bonus and are collected to provide more Cannonball Wilds. Up to 50 wins per spin is possible during the bonus feature on 123 BOOM!

My Thoughts

123 Boom! is a interesting slot to add to 4ThePlayer’s catalogue. As with 6 Wild Sharks, that put the player back in control, we have options within this slot to allow players to determine how their game is played. That said, the choices within 6 Wild Sharks affected the volatility of both the base game for players outside the UK, and the bonus for players worldwide. In 123 BOOM! the choice of Top Spin or Slide Spin do not affect the game payout or features, so the choice is really just aesthetic. It can be hard for players to accept something new like Slot Slider™, particularly with cascades being such a popular aspect of pre-existing slots, but we do suspect that this will be one of the more popular offerings from 4ThePlayer. The potential for 107 explosive wins from 1 spin, a x99 multiplier in the bonus and a win of over 14,000x bet means this game packs a punch, and we expect to see some great things from it.
