Boom! Go the fireworks in the sky. And so goes Boomanji mobile slot machine, which with bi-directional paylines and expanding wilds, is a lot of fun.
Is it an exact copy? Well, no. The graphics are different. The return to player rate is also only 95.96% instead of Starburst’s 96.1%. So only a very small marginal difference.
Why are we nitpicking at the details? Because that’s what we need to do to compare these almost identical mobile video slots.
They both have Expanding Wilds with up to an additional 3 free spins (great feature). They both pay in both directions (we love it). They both have 10 paylines (which is more than enough with the two way spin). The return to player rate difference is so slight you won’t even notice it.
So let’s talk about the real differences between these mobile slots.
The graphics and gameplay. For one we really liked the firework theme. It might not be as familiar as the bursting gem in the famous NetEnt slot, but it works.
This Boomanji slot game whizzes, crackles and pops in the night sky, with the symbols cascading into place and the wins bursting into colourful explosions.
The gameplay is where you’ll notice the real difference here. You have to load the Expanding Wilds graphics once before they load seamlessly and the interface is not as intuitive. However, like we said, we are really picking at details here.

Expanding Wild Symbol and Free Spins: If a Fireworks Crate icon comes up in any of reels 2, 3 or 4, it spreads to the whole reel, giving you three wildcards instead of one. Then watch as every winning combination made possible by the wildcards adds more winnings to your balance and on top of all that, you get an automatic free spin too (up to three), which can bring you additional wildcards and wins.
As copycats go, this BetSoft Boomanji mobile slot holds its own against Starburst, who it tries to imitate in everything but its theme.
If we were forced to choose we would probably still go for the original, but diversity makes things interesting right?
And if we get a similar experience in another mobile slot, but with enough differences to feel unique and keeps us interested – then why not give it a spin?
