Special Features

La Bomba features a selection of symbols made up of bombs, molotovs, powder kegs, cacti, dynamite, bells, and cherry bombs. The most valuable symbol is naturally Señora Guadalupe as if you land 5 of these symbols on an active payline then you'll be treated to an explosive payout worth a whopping 60X your bet!

The Wild symbol in this game is represented by a big black bomb with a blue background. This symbol only appears on reels 2, 3, and 4 and substitutes for all other symbols to help create winning combinations. Land 3 or more of these symbols on the reels and you’ll receive a fantastic payout worth 75X your stake!

The Free Games feature is the star of the show in this slot and to trigger it, you’ll need to land 3 Wilds on the 3 middle reels. Once activated, you’ll receive 5 Free Spins and the amount you win to trigger the feature is then displayed above reel 2, a double amount total is placed above reel 3, with a triple amount total shown above reel 4. In order to get one of these amounts, you will need to land a Wild symbol on reels 2, 3, or 4 during Free Games. You can also land an additional Free Spin by getting 2 Wilds in this feature and if you get 3 Wilds then you will be awarded 2 Extra Free Spins. This means you can benefit from lots of Free Spins with plenty of cash prizes up for grabs if you land enough Wilds in this bonus game.

Theme, Graphics and Sound

La Bomba features cute cartoon-like graphics as it takes place in a colourful and vibrant looking village with small houses and cacti everywhere. Symbols are wonderfully rendered onscreen and consist of Señora Guadalupe, a Bomb, a Cherry Bomb, Molotovs, a Venus Flytrap, a Bell, Cacti, a Powder Keg, and some Sticks of Dynamite. The animations are neat as symbols zip along the reels rapidly and enlarge and move about when part of a winning payline. If you look closely, you will even notice Señora Guadalupe’s pet rat ‘Flash’ scurrying along the ground while carrying an explosive device which explodes after a short while!

The music is lively with a distinct Latino flavour. It fits in really well with the fast-paced nature of the game.

Our Verdict on La Bomba

This game comes from top software provider NextGen Gaming and is a fun trip to a village where explosions happen on a daily basis! La Bomba features excellent cartoon graphics, a fitting soundtrack, and a few bonus features. The main attraction of this game is the Free Games feature which triggers quite frequently and if you land a few Wilds here then you will take home more than a decent cash payout. The top prize on offer in this slot is also worth a mention as it is a whopping 7,945X your stake which can be won in the Free Games feature. The only downside to this game is that it could have done with a few more bonus rounds or features to make it that bit more replayable. Variance-wise. I found this slot to be between Medium and High so be warned that you will have to endure a few dry spins before seeing a profitable return on the reels. For slots with a similar Mexican theme, check out Mexico Wins and ChilliPop.
