Videoslots Casino had recently added a brand new online slot titled Buster Hammer from a less well know developer called Chance Interactive, their previous slot machine release was the cute and fluffy styled Lolly Land which was released some time ago and was a fairly low variance slot that didn’t really appeal to us.
Buster Hammer, however, is a much more interesting circus-themed 243-way online slot that uses a regular 5×3 reel layout. Buster is the main character who can be seen to the left of the slot machine and will strike down his hammer when the special hammer symbols land on the reels granting multiplier values up to 5x to any winning combinations.
If more than 1 special hammer wild symbol lands on the reels then these values are added together, which can lead to some huge wins and even more so during the bonus rounds.
The slot has a cartoon circus feel, but there is no clowning around in the bonus rounds with some serious wins to be had especially if you opt for the highest variance free spins mode which only grants 4 spins, but with some huge multiplier potential.
During base gameplay, there are a couple of special symbols to be looking out including special hammer Wild symbols on reels 2, 3, 4, as well as the randomly triggered Super Seal feature that can occur after any spin of the base game.
Buster Hammer Bonus Rounds
Super Seal Feature
During any spin during the base game the Super Seal Feature can be triggered, the seal attempts to balance a number of balls (cash prizes) this can be just 1 ball or several on top of each other.
The bonus round will award a minimum of 5x stake, but up to 3 multipliers can be applied by Buster Hammer to this win raising up to a maximum win of 75x stake.
Buster Hammer Free Spins
The main free spin bonus round is triggered by landing 3 of the special Circus Scatter symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5, once triggered the player then has to choose which of 3 free spins modes to select, they all differ in terms of volatility, and also the RTP (Return to Player) varies for each option too.
The 3 free spins modes are as follows,
- 4 Free Spins – Wild Multipliers values are quintupled – RTP 95.89%
- 6 Free Spins – Wild Multipliers values are tripled – RTP 95.83%
- 8 Free Spins – Wild Multipliers values are doubled – RTP 95.80%
Be aware though that the free spins can be very volatile, so it’s definitely a risk/reward choice if you decide to select the 4 free spins mode with the largest multipliers option.
Overall though we were quite impressed with the Buster Hammer slot, while it has a cartoon theme there is definitely some decent win potential in the bonus rounds, the theme and sounds are very fitting for the design on the slot and we enjoyed the option of testing out the different bonus option.
Whilst it might not be the next Immortal Romance in terms of 243-way slots, we definitely enjoyed playing Buster Hammer, and it was a pleasant surprise that it has some very decent win potential.
Our best win during playtesting was a 200x stake win in the 6 Free Spins mode, and a 35x stake win from the Super Seal feature.
