If you enjoyed Starburst, chances are you’ll love this new slot from BetSoft. 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 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 the 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. Boomanji 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.

• 5 reels
• 10 pay lines
• Jackpot: 2,500 coins
• Min coin: 0.02
• Max coin: 0.50
• Coins per line: 2
• Bonus Game
• Wild symbol
• Scatter symbol
• Free spins

As copycats go, Boomanji 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?
