Buster Hammer Slot, not to be confused with Bust da Hammer. Buster Hammer is a circus performer and the eponymous hero of this five reel, three row, 243 Ways online slot from NYX Gaming Group, the award-winning global gaming conglomerate that brought us such entertaining titles as Great Wild Elk and Foxin Wins.
Buster Hammer, a star of the circus, a strong man beyond compare! In full circus strong man regalia – off-the-shoulder leopard-print leotard and whopping great hammer – Buster stands by the reel case twizzling his hammer with interest. Not in a menacing way. In a friendly, “I’m going to smack the heck out of something to prove my strength” kind of way.
The reel case itself is styled like a stage with huge velvet curtains draped along the side, while the backdrop is resplendent as a brightly-lit circus tent and an eager crowd. Our gaming symbols are circus-styled 9s through Aces as our low-payers, and a circus Lion, Elephant, Sea Lion and Buster himself stand proud as our high-paying value symbols, while Buster’s ever-presence by the side of the reel case is explained when we land a Wild Hammer as part of a winning combination. Buster raises his hammer and smashes down on the High Striker by the side of the reel case. The lights spark and the bell rings, revealing a Wild Hammer Multiplier that multiplies our winning bet by up to x5. Smashing!
As though seeing Buster bash the High Striker isn’t bonus enough, the Buster Hammer online slot also boasts two bonus features. The first, the Super Seal Feature, triggers randomly. We win an initial payout of up to x5 our total bet, but then Buster gives his all at the High Striker one or more times with all the multipliers added together. All told Buster could help us clobber our way to a x75 multiplier! (No seals were harmed during the making of this feature.)
Landing three or more Circus Tent Scatters will also yield a Free Spins feature in which we could again win a total Wild Hammer Multiplier of up to x75. We must first choose our preferred bonus game – between 8, 6 or 4 Free Spins with Wild Hammer Multipliers doubled, tripled or quintupled! It doesn’t take a math genius to figure out that deserves more than one exclamation mark!
Buster not only brings personality to this medium-high variance online slot from NYX Gaming Group, he also brings his hammer. And boy does he bust it! There is plenty of action to keep our interest piqued here – as you would both hope and expect from the circus! – with the game design, betting interface and 243 Ways system working us nicely to the well-implemented multipliers. And when jolly big hammers and figures like x75 multipliers start being bandied round, it’s time for everybody to sit up and take notice.
