Our first encounter with Big Bounty Bill took place in 2019 and this trigger happy cowboy from the future was a popular character. Come to think of it, maybe we should refer to him as the Terminator of the Wild West.
You know the expression “don’t bring a knife to a gun fight”? Well, it’s not really fair to bring a laser gun to the dusty streets of a cowboy town either, now is it?
Kalamba recently brought him back in a sequel known as Big Bounty Bill Boom Boom and today, I’ll strap on a vest and see what this guy is up to.
🎵…I’m gonna take my horse to the old town road…🎵
Mixing the future with the past is always an interesting topic and it’s been used in both movies and games. Is it a guaranteed hit? Far from it and based on my first impression of this game… let’s just say the jury is still out.
Paylines: 16,807 Ways
Release Date: August 17th, 2023
Features: Free Spins, ReSpins, Gamble Option
How to Score Respins
In terms of features, Respins is one of them and you can get them in the base game. You’ll need to find the gun symbols (Expansion symbol) to get them and it takes 3 of them to trigger the Respin.
When activated, you can get a different number of Respins depending on how many of the gun scatters you land.
- 3 Expansion symbols – 3 Respins
- 4 Expansion symbols – 5 Respins
- 5 Expansion symbols – 7 Respins
The beauty of Respins is that the height of your reels will increase, giving you a bigger shot at winning.
Get Free Spins Via Hyper Bonus
We all have days where you feel like you must be wearing some scatter repellent perfume or something. What I’m saying is that it can feel impossible to get Free Spins the normal way.
The Hyper Bonus feature will let you pay for Free Spins and you can choose 8, 15, 20 or 25 of them. As I’ve mentioned many times before, I think every slot should have the option.
Big Bounty Bill Boom Boom Free Spins
Landing 3 Bonus symbols will trigger 8 Free Spins. When you have been transferred to the bonus round, get ready to shoot your way to expanding reels.
You will see a counter on each of the top 3 rows and when you score a gun symbol, it will fire and subtract from the number. Once it’s been removed, you will not only get an increase on the reel, you will also see a +1 Free Spins sign poppin’ up on your screen.
Obviously the more layers you can remove from the reels, the better it is for you. The fact that you will get additional spins is even more helpful.
I was able to secure a nice $60 Mega Win in the bonus round during my trial run, which I was very happy about.
How to Double Your Winnings
Having the opportunity to double your winnings after each and every win is definitely a plus in my book. Usually choosing the gamble feature means you will be asked to pick the right card. However, Kalamba has let the creativity flow this time and sticking to the theme, you will be playing a game of Russian Roulette.
Ok, that’s not entirely true but you will see the cylinder with 6 chambers. 3 of them will be empty while 3 will contain a bullet. After you have clicked on Gamble, the cylinder will spin and if it stops on a bullet – you win! You can choose to either spin again for more money or collect the cash and head back to the game.
Should the spin instead land on an empty chamber, you will unfortunately lose your money.
Big Bounty Bill Boom Boom – Pass or Play?
Even though I’m not sold on the theme, I had a fun time playing Big Bounty Bill Boom Boom. Let’s just say that I prefer “regular” cowboys instead of these Star Wars wannabees.
It’s easy to feel there’s a lot of action in this game and that’s because of the Expansion symbols firing shots. It does add some extra excitement to each spin, which is always appreciated.
The fact that you can score some big wins through the Respins as well as via Free Spins does change the way I feel about the game but is it enough? I have to say despite enjoying some of the features, it’s not a slot that I will add to my top 10. Could I see players liking it? Definitely.
