About the Company
Booming Games is an online real money gambling game developer with headquarters in Douglas, Isle of Man. The company, co-founded by CEO, Max Niehusen in 2014, has offices and team members around the globe including Malta, UK, Germany, Poland, Romania, China, and elsewhere. The RNG has been certified in multiple jurisdictions across Europe. QUINEL, with labs in Italy, Malta, UK, and Argentina, has been issuing test reports and certificates for about a decade and is a PCI Security Standards Council qualified assessor and assures multiple jurisdictional compliance.
The company has signed several strategic partnerships over the last few years that have seen their games find much wider distribution. Today, they are available in regulated markets worldwide thanks to deals with turnkey solutions providers, game aggregators and platform providers such as BetConstruct, Oryx, and Slotegrator, and certifications in new markets like Italy and Denmark.
The portfolio comprises over 60 titles. Most of the games are slots but some scratch cards can be found. Interestingly, the scratch games can be incorporated into a slot bonus round, showing just a glimpse of the imagination behind the growing company. Some of the many online casinos offering their games include mBit, La Fiesta, NetBet, Videoslots, DasistCasino, and Babe to name a few. While US players are welcome at Vegas Crest Casino, they will not see Booming Games among the providers. However, players in regulated jurisdictions will.

Software and Games
While the company itself is young, the depth of the team's experience can be seen in their games on the surface and deep within. All games are designed by the company, rather than jobbed out, so complete control is exercised from idea to concept, and on to launch. The full catalog was developed and deploys in HTML5 so players will get the same experience on a mobile device as a high-resolution desktop monitor.
The slots catalog is extremely diversified with unique features in nearly every game. The combinations and innovations seem nearly endless and the designers seem to have a knack for bridging and melding genres and styles. Booming 7's Deluxe is a good example of "old meets new" with classic fruit symbols on the strips of a three-reel, 10 payline game set on an opulent casino floor.
Grids currently range from the 1x3 King Panda to a 5x4 layout for Heroes and Beasts, set in the Coliseum. It appears as if they have a 7x3 under development but it doesn't appear in the demo portfolio yet. Most of the games are built on a standard 5x3 like the Japan film noir-inspired Gangster Gamblers and the more recent Lava Loco.
Payline configurations run from 1 to 50 with nine variations in between and some of them paying both ways (L-R/R-L). The list of features is extensive and some games use more than one. These include 2-Way Pay, 4-Way Pay, Double Symbols, Expanding Symbols, Free Spins, Gamble, Interacting Symbols, Level Multiplier, Multiplying Paylines, Multiplying Wilds, Paytable Selector, Perma 2-Way Pay, Rotator, Split Gamble, Stacked Wilds, Wild Doubler, Wild Reel, and x7 Multiplier. One word, WOW!
Regarding themes, they have taken most of the tried and true possibilities such as myths and legends, space, oceans, and fruit and forced them through a sieve of evolution to come out new and fresh. Some of their truly innovative original themes nearly defy description, but you'll know them when you play them. Freemasons Fortunes is one bold example.
While the volatility index is segmented into high, medium, and low, it will take quite a bit of play to get a feel for hit frequency and how much of the RTP comes from the base game and certain features. Try Harvest Fest if you like Asian-themed tough nuts to crack with big potential payouts. Stellar Stones offers mid-level play with plenty of small wins and more medium size pays than its more volatile cousins. And if you want to play a long time on a small deposit and experience a barrage of innovative features, but slimmer chances for a huge jackpot, try Flaming Dragon, Chicago Nights from the Rotator series, or Classico and Wild Cherries for retro playtime.
The Final Analysis
While the artwork and front-end feel of many games may not be for everyone, each has its own artistic merit from 3D side characters, to animated features, and unique color schemes. However, it's the magic under the hood that can hook players with supercharged moments of adrenaline or long, satisfying game sessions.
The innovation and diversity of the catalog, mixed with astute business acumen in getting their games to so many casinos indicate a potential sleeping giant. Regardless, the games are worth more than a passing glance and will continue to become the favorites of many more players as time goes by.
