With an old arcade pinball-style, this Bompers slot game has a great theme and lots of fun features with a 5,000x your total bet max win.
With fruity symbols and neon lights, this Bompers slot isn’t as obvious as the 80s throwback that is the 3 Devils Pinball slot, but it’s still a fun theme.
It’s got fruits as low paying symbols, and horseshoes, 7s and clubs as the high paying ones. But what makes this particularly good fun is that with every win the reels get a little bit bigger.
Because on every win the symbols will disappear, and more will topple from above, giving you classic cascading reels. Only not quite, because not only will you get replacement symbols, but you’ll also get an extra row of symbols.
That’s right if you get 4 wins in a row, you will open up a 262,144 ways to win slot machine with lots of opportunities for a win. And you get up there sooner than you think.
Especially as you get two special symbols in the base game alone: first you have the shooting stars which move up the reels to the top area on every win and explode into a frenzy of symbols including wilds.
Then you have the Bomper symbols, which can appear at random, as 5 symbols bump into them on wins, you get sticky wilds. They are not as useful in the base game, but they really shine in the Bompers slot free spins.
The Bompers slot is different, fun and frustrating
You don’t get to have a 5,000x your bet top win without being volatile. And this is a volatile slot machine. What you don’t know for sure is how to get those numbers.
There are no multipliers, so we’d guess it’s in the free spins where you have 5 bomper symbols in place at all times, and if you turn all five wilds quickly you get 5 sticky wilds and lots of chances for big wins.
With only 7 free spins, getting 5 sticky wilds is hard work and you rarely get them short of the last spin. So it’s frustrating. But then again, that what happens with these new modern slots – in order to get something new and innovative you have to be willing to get used to new mechanics.
We weren’t sure about Megaways slots when they first came out, and now we love them. We suspect this Bompers game is much the same, and you’ll either get it straight away, or come back and try it a few times before making up your mind.

Wild: The W symbol is the wild symbol and can be used to replace any other symbol to create a win.
Bompers: In the base game, at random, up to 5 bombers can appear. These are black signs and when the meter is full (ie. you get up to 5 wins nearby) the wild will turn into a sticky wild.
Avalanching Wins and Expanded Reels: When you get a win, those symbols will disappear, fall vertically, slide to the left and then right repeatedly until they reach their resting place, and more symbols tumble from above. For every avalanche, the number of rows will increase.
Shooting Stars: When a Shooting Star appears, it will always try and move upwards if there is an empty space above it. If a shooting star reaches the top of the symbol area, it will generate a collection of up to 7 symbols including itself. This collection will always consist of a mix of payout symbols and a wild, and they will all fall downwards.
Mystery Bomb: This can be dropped in any symbol or be generated by a shooting star. It explodes and replaces itself and its connecting symbols with a randomly selected payout. 2 or more mystery bomb symbols explode at the same time, potential overlapping position will be filled by wild symbols.
Free Drops: 3 Bonus symbols anywhere in view during normal mode will trigger 7 free drops bonus. At the beginning of each of the Bompers bonus, you will always have 5 bomper symbols in view. 5 symbols bumping into it will turn that symbol into a sticky wild for the whole duration of the bonus.
We like the arcade-style falling symbols and those expanded reels on each win. But we suspect that this Bompers slot will be one of those that you'll either love or hate.
The avalanching reels add a little extra zest to this casino game as you get more and more symbols, though there is no doubt that a few of those special symbols more often would have livened up the base game.
The good news is that you have those ever-expanding reels and free spins with potentially up to 5 sticky wilds. It's great fun, it's highly volatile, it's got 5,000x your bet, and it's frustrating.
Elk Studio slots always give you something different, and this is true with Bompers.
Review by Lucky Mobile Slots, last updated: October 10, 2022 - Rating
The theoretical return to player rate is 95.8%, which gives this online slot game a 4.2% house edge.
This game is a high variance machine giving you the chance for big wins but wins are less frequent than other lower variance machines.
Yes, all the casinos with Elk Studios slots on our list will let you play for free in demo mode but you might have to sign up or login to do so depending on where you reside.
