The launch of a new casino is always the start of an intriguing journey; one from scepticism (does the world really need another online casino?) to, hopefully, the realisation that the casino in question genuinely does have something to offer to those who choose to visit. With Boom Casino, I quickly realised that the casino is quite capable of standing out even in a huge marketplace. While the lack of a sportsbook will disappoint anyone seeking a Boom Casino sports betting review, I nevertheless immediately saw a huge amount of potential in this sleekly-designed website. As someone with a passion for all aspects of casino gaming, and who has penned more than a few reviews in my time, I was excited to explore further and learn more about what seemed to be a very worthy new addition to the gambling galaxy.
- 31. JANUARY 2020: Boom Casino starts its journey.
- 23. MARCH 2020: The Boom Casino brand expands into new territories, including a dedicated Finnish site.
- 23. APRIL 2021: We updated our Boom Casino test
It’s time to enter a new stratosphere. Boom Casino has amazing bonus offers available, way above and beyond the bounds of us earth-bound types. Although there is no sportsbook on this craft, even then there’s plenty of opportunity to indulge in some sports-related games and slots for a bit of variety.
Boom’s current bonus has an exceptionally high cash value, alongside multiple opportunities for free spins and an unearthly free bonus opportunity for one of the best-known slots on the planet.
I won’t give you specifics, as Boom truly works in many parallel universes and changes its availability constantly, but suffice to say you won’t be disappointed by anything you’ll find as you embark upon this cosmic operation.
What I can say though is that, within my epic space/time observations of Boom Casino, there are more than enough ways to make the most of any bonus offerings here.
The PlayersBest Lab is specifically designed to offer something genuinely new and interesting to our readers, and over the course of my Boom Casino review, I have strived to meet the same goals. My intention was to spend time with Boom Casino and peer beneath its impressive surface, to understand the inner workings and take a player’s-eye-view that provides the kind of analyses casino players actually want to learn about. To give you a greater insight into my journey, let’s quickly look through all of the different elements of the Boom Casino site that I will ensure are included in this endeavour…
Starting with the first steps
Before I can begin to assess a casino, there’s one small step (for a reviewer, one giant leap for reviewerkind…) that I have to take: registration. As this is the same process you, our readers, will go through, this provides me with a handy first glimpse at how Boom Casino works. I’ll run through the account setup process, and see how smoothly it runs.
The good news is, it’s incredibly simple. On the left-hand sidebar is the option to “Register”. Click that, and you’ll be prompted to fill out a few details in a pop-up form. Once you’ve given your email address and password, and chosen a phone number, you’ll just need to set some account details and upload some ID, and you’re on your way.
Discover the bonuses and offers available
Sign up offers are a key part of any casino offering, so this is an area I’ll be paying close attention to. I’ll look at how the bonus works, whether it matches up well to competition, and the necessities that must be met in order to use it. What’s more, I’ll delve a little deeper still, looking for loyalty programs and VIP clubs that can be used if you decide you like what you see and want to continue to return to Boom Casino in the future.
I’m pleased to be able to say that Boom Casino has a wealth of useful recurring offers that make things fun for returning customers, but the star of the show is their signup offer, which compares exceptionally well with the competition. There’s also a genuinely beneficial VIP program, where Boom Cash is paid to you for each bet that you make. 0.5% of the total amount you bet is returned to you, and can be cashed out or used as playing funds. Just a brief note of warning here: while 100% of your bets on slot games count towards your VIP tally, the amount is on a sliding scale for the rest of the site. Blackjack earns you 10%, Roulette 5%, and you’ll win nothing back for your efforts if you wish to try out your favorite Baccarat strategies or play at the Craps tables.
Focus on functionality
As well as checking to see if the website looks good, I also need to take a peek beneath the hood and see if Boom Casino is in good shape to fly. I’ll look at how the site loads, whether its navigation is intuitive to use, and really put it to the test to ensure its performance is as good as is necessary for space travel.
A pattern is beginning to develop here, as the site’s functionality is splendid. Loading times are warp-speed fast and navigation is easy thanks to the left-hand sidebar, which is a user-friendly home for all the links you’ll need while using Boom Casino. You’re not going to be lost in space here — the design has usability at its heart at all times, eschewing needlessly flashy elements in favour of a better gaming experience. The Boom Casino online casino shows a finely-tuned sense of priorities, and gamers are sure to appreciate that.
All being well, any time spent at an online casino will be smooth and trouble-free, but we all know there might be times you need to reach out for help. If that happens, you need to know that the customer support will be second to none, which is why I’ll assess this entire aspect of the service. I’m looking for quick responses, comprehensive guides, and as many options as possible for getting in touch with the all-important customer support.
What I find is a genuine triumph of service — Boom Casino betting customers will find a Live Chat option available from 9am to midnight (CET), staffed by knowledgeable and polite operators. They’re skilled at dealing with any problem you may have, and most queries should take no more than a few minutes to solve. If you have a query outside of that timeframe or have a more intractable issue, there’s an email address you can use to ensure your questions should be answered within a 24-hour cycle. All in all, it’s a successful mission on this score.
Giving the games a spin
With the nitty gritty examined and Boom Casino’s ratings seemingly heading towards the sky, it’s time to give the core function of the platform a try. Alighting upon my favourite slots and table games — and hoping to discover a few new favourites too — I’ll play the games, assess how they work, generally judge how well this online casino does when it comes to playing online casino games.
The first bit of good news is that Boom Casino has amassed a solid crew of software providers to supply the best games for slots and table game fans. Industry titans such as NetEnt and Microgaming are present, along with innovative developers as diverse as Blueprint Gaming, Red Tiger and Play ‘n’ Go among many others. As a result, there’s a wide and wondrous galaxy of games to play. Whether you want to play a trusted classic, or check out what the more independent developers are serving up, you’ll be delighted by the offering here.
Perhaps the outstanding part of the offering, though, is in their Live Casino section. Unlike other sites where the live games can feel like an afterthought, Boom Casino has given them pride of place in their own section, and entrusted the development side to Evolution Gaming. The choice of developer is inspired – the Live Casino comes through every test we have with flying colours, games moving along at a superb pace and without a flaw in sight.
Looking closer at funding
Of course, to play those games at Boom Casino, I’m going to need to have a funded account — which makes for a perfect opportunity to see how all things related to funding work. I’ll browse the deposit and withdrawal options and check how quickly everything works, hoping for a smooth, seamless process that lets me move quickly through the process and turn my focus to the casino itself.
The first thing I see is that the payment options are relatively sparse: credit and debit cards are the main method, with MuchBetter and Interac the others. No crypto option is currently on offer, but in truth the relatively narrow range of payment methods isn’t the end of the world, or even a mission failure — the options that are available will cover the vast majority of those who want to play, and once you’ve chosen your funding method Boom Casino stands comparison with any competitor. The minimum deposit is a standard $20, and the minimum withdrawal is the same amount. If you’re a high roller, the most you can deposit is $5000, although the maximum withdrawal is twice that amount at an impressive $10000.
Deposits should show on your account balance immediately, and when it comes to withdrawing, your transaction should be processed within 8 hours on the casino side — hopefully showing up in your own account within a few short days.
Can I take Boom Casino with me when I travel?
It may be conventional to play an online casino at a desktop computer, but times are changing, and any good casino will move with that change and embrace new players’ habits. As a result, I’ll definitely be taking a look at how well Boom Casino performs away from home, namely by assessing the app (or the mobile website, if the app isn’t available) at great length. Does the app work well? Is it available on both Android and iOS? Is there anything I can’t do on the app that I can do on the desktop site? I’ll be finding the answers to these questions, and more, as I put the Boom Casino mobile options through their paces.
The first thing I find is that, at the time of reviewing, there is no Boom Casino app — which is not that uncommon for online casinos, and not a big problem when the casino in question offers a mobile website. I can happily report that Boom Casino sticks the landing on that front, with a mobile site that is perfectly optimised and works equally well on iOS and on Android phones. If you want to hit the slots while you’re out and about, you lose nothing in terms of experience — the online site is as smooth and as intuitive as the desktop one, and a real joy to play on.
Safety and security at Boom Casino
Last but very definitely not least, I always turn my attention to something every online casino player wants to know: can the site be trusted? Of course, I’m not just going to trust my gut instinct on this matter: I’m going to look for hard information that verifies Boom Casino is the kind of site where I can play with confidence.
Thankfully, I don’t have to look too far to find the reassurance I am looking for. Boom Casino is licensed by the Malta Gambling Authority, one of the most reputable names in the gambling industry, so we’re off to a good start. Next, in the handy “Security” section — which it’s always good to see a casino provide, evidencing their focus on displaying the credentials that players care about — I learn about independently audited games to ensure fairness and the use of HTTPS to ensure maximum security. It’s everything I wanted to know, and leaves me with an excellent impression of Boom Casino, both for the security facts being true and also their willingness to share them with their users.
The next leg of my Boom Casino journey was to look at how innovative the website is. Given its relative youth, I’d expect Boom Casino online casino to be right at the cutting edge of the latest developments — and I was glad to see this expectation more than met.
The live casino at Boom Casino is one of its strongest areas, representing the perfect blend of new technology with an old-world experience that dates back decades. Evolution Gaming are behind the offering, and the entire live casino section is placed in its own section so it can shine as brightly as possible. Game choice is plentiful, ranging from tried and tested favourites to newer choices such as the interesting “Game Show” options. It’s clear a lot of work has been done here to ensure a good product, and I was impressed with the many options, the gameplay, and the general look and feel of the entire area.
Away from the live casino, Boom Casino’s quest for innovation is further confirmed. Innovatively, the site highlights interesting games with reviews on the site, giving you the lowdown on the games before you try them for yourself. I thought this was a nice touch that should be especially appealing to anyone visiting for the first time and unsure where to start. In addition, the background story to many slots are covered extensively, which really helps to round out the experience and cemented my overall strong impression of the brand.
