Game in Action
Most Betsoft slots are pretty beautiful, because they do 3D so incredibly well. As far as firework slots go, Boomanji is certainly great to look at and comes with a lot of very colourful variations of fireworks. We wouldn’t have minded a few more explosions on the reel, mind you.
The background sound is also apt, because there’s definitely a lot of firework going on, though you’ll also notice a non-descript ambient sound.
The look of the thing is definitely the main difference to Starburst, which was released a year earlier than Boomanji. But the game’s mechanics are virtually identical. Given how popular Starburst has proven, you can’t blame Betsoft for trying their hand had something similar.
That being said, you know what to expect here. Boomanji comes with 10 paylines, which pay both ways. That’s a good thing, because it doubles your chances at getting a winning combination.
Once a wild hits reels 2, 3 and/or 4, it will expand to cover the whole reel and hang around for on free re-spin. Since you can get a maximum of three wilds, you can also get a maximum of three re-spins, one for each wild.
And that’s about it. Thankfully wilds hit frequently, but they don’t always result in wins. This is a low volatile slot, so life-changing wins are incredibly rare here.

Boomanji is a decent attempt by Betsoft to emulate the success of NetEnt’s Starburst. This isn’t the first slot to try and it won’t be the last. Given how popular Starburst has proven to be over the years, Boomanji certainly brings in a bit of a different theme here, which has been gorgeously adapted.
Apart from coming with a different theme, Starburst has a marginally better RTP with 96.1%. The difference is rather negligible and Boomanji proves a diversion from the better known slot more than anything else. Check it out yourself and see whether you like it or not.
