Leading slots developers NetEnt obviously have a good handle on history, as the 'digging for gold' theme has been well and truly 'mined' in their 5 reel, 20 pay-line video slot, Boom Brothers.
Pitching you as a member of a gang of bumbling TNT-wielding miners, Boom Brothers piles the dynamite high - but pack it well and riches could be yours. The betting starts at $0.01, but bet big and a 37,500-coin jackpot is there for the mining.
The slick animated intro reminds you that you're in a NetEnt production here. It leads in nicely to a game that boasts some beautifully-rendered graphics and lovely gameplay.
The reels here are filled to the brim with shovels, helmets, pickaxes and underground mine-cart tracks. Each symbol is nicely-animated (we mentioned this was a NetEnt joint, right?) and has a wacky sound effect when it plays.
The bomb symbol is the game's Wild and substitutes for all symbols other than the scatter and the Free Spins symbol.
Get three or more of those Free Spins symbols and you'll receive, funnily enough, free spins. Each prize also gets a 3x multiplier.
The 'Railtrack' sign acts as the other scatter. Get five signs and you'll trigger the game's bonus game, whereby one of our friendly Boom Brothers hurtles down the mine collecting diamonds, rubies and gold nuggets. Whichever character wins the race awards a different amount.
Free spins, nice animation, and a simple bonus game: Boom Brothers delivers on most levels.
In terms of the quirky tech feel, the steampunk-themed Nuts & Bolts from Gamesys, or the family-themed robot domestic drama of Sheriff Gaming's The Robets will satisfy slots fans who enjoy this game.
