NextGen Gaming La Bomba Video Slot Review

Take an explosive trip to Mexico in La Bomba, a beautifully designed 5 reel, 25 payline video slot from Side City Studios and NextGen Gaming. The highlight here is the Free Games feature which awards 5 free spins. Land a wild on 1 of the middle 3 reels during those free spins and big bonus prizes are on offer. Play on your desktop, tablet or mobile from between 25p and £62.50 per spin.

Side City Studios has created a superbly designed game in La Bomba. The action takes place in a dusty, colourful Mexican village. The reels feature lower value cherry bombs, Molotov cocktails, sticks of dynamite and barrels of explosive. More rewarding are the cactus plants and the feisty senorita who goes by the name of Guadalupe. Land 5 of these and you’ll pocket a 20 times bet award.

The standard symbols are joined by the bomb which is the wild. It can land on the middle 3 reels only and replace all other symbols. Hope to land 3 of these wilds on the same spin as you’ll trigger the game’s Free Games feature. On offer here are 5 free spins.

Above reels 2, 3 and 4 you’ll see boards showing amounts of cash. The precise values depend on the size of the win from the triggering spin. The total on reel 2 is double, the amount on reel 3 is treble and the figure above reel 4 four times the triggering win.

Land a wild on 1 of the middle 3 reels and you’ll win the bonus amount shown on the board above that reel. These bonus prizes are on top of anything you might win on a standard reel spin. If you get 2 or 3 La Bomba wilds on a free spin, you’ll win 1 or 2 additional free spins respectively.

We have no complaints about the design of La Bomba. The bright and colourful imagery is excellent and the salsa soundtrack has more than a hint of La Bamba about it. It comes together rather nicely. The gameplay here is pretty straightforward.

The number of free spins on offer isn’t large but the bonus prizes can get the coins moving. The variance here is in the medium to high range so expect plenty of swings. You can win a cool 7,945 times your bet on every free spin! There’s plenty to like about La Bomba.

The design is very classy and the simple gameplay offers some decent chances to live up to this video slot’s explosive name. If you’re impressed, take look at other Side City Studios/NextGen Gaming collaborations such as Wild Dodo and Venice Magic.
