Boom Casino is the latest addition to the portfolio of the acclaimed Hero Gaming Group and among others sister site to Casino Heroes and Simple Casino. With a mission statement stating to have the player at heart, the crew set out to establish a gaming hangout that will deliver a unique online casino experience. The ingredients for their daring endeavour are an extensive game choice from 40+ providers, an adaptive player dashboard, a generous loyalty program that returns real cash to the punters, a Blitz mode for lightning-fast gameplay and an Expert’s Area with a wealth of information for anyone looking for more detailed reporting about the games on offer. Couple that with the pedigree of Hero Gaming, fast payments and professional support, and Boom Casino is indeed a superb choice for a thrilling online gaming journey.
Opening its doors in February 2020, Boom Casino is owned and operated by Hero Bet Ltd. under licenses from the MGA Malta and the Swedish Spelinspektionen. Currently, there are no plans to acquire a licence for the United Kingdom and considering that the group pulled out of the UK market in 2019, I doubt they will change that anytime soon.
Update 22nd September 2020: Boom Casino is now accepting players from Canada. Accounts can be registered in CAD and funded with regional payment options such as Interac and MuchBetter.
The GMBLRS Detective
Visiting a new casino for the first time makes me feel like a true detective. There are tons to go through and discover, all in the hope that it won’t be just another generic gaming site with, well, games and some promotions to entice us to make our next deposit. Boom Casino went out of their way and prides itself in consulting with players in the preparations for their launch, allowing real experiences to flow into the development of the site. The result looks sleek at first view, surely reason enough to go for a detailed examination.
Loading Boom Casino brings up a mobile-optimized site in pleasant blue and deep purple colours that are easy on the eye. The menu on the left is taking you to all vital parts of the casino and allows for easy navigation. What is quite impressive is the soon you click on Casino it will display the game page with no clutter, promotions or other distractions. A clear tab system allows you to toggle between the sections while a search bar lets you look for a specific title. The choice is massive with over 40+ game providers being listed. Among them are legacy developers, newcomers and rising stars, making sure there is something for every taste and budget.
Blitz games are an in-house development from Hero Gaming. In case you wondered what that means, these are selected slots which can be played in the so-called Blitz mode which is six times faster than the default spin speed. And because it is so quick, the reels are not shown, only the spin results. You choose the number of auto spins and the game will run through them with lightning-fast speed.
An express registration allows you to sign up at Boom Casino in less than 1 minute. However, only players from countries listed in the drop-down menu will be allowed to register an account. Going by its sister site, the list of restricted countries is rather long. Once signed up, we strongly recommend completing the KYC verification at your earliest convenience to avoid any potential delays when it comes to withdrawals.
An extensive list of payment methods based on your country of residence is at your disposal for funding your casino account. Credit/debit cards, E-Pro, e-wallets and instant bank transfers are accepted. The casino currency is generally Euro although some others like CAD and NOK are offered too.
All players at the casino are enrolled into their loyalty program called Boom Cash. A varying percentage from each bet you make on any game will be accumulated in your very own Boom Cash Pot. You can redeem the amount at any times as a real cash reward with no wagering requirements attached to it. For me personally, a perfect solution as it bypasses any type of prize wheels, free spins thingies and other rewards that are rarely direct cash going back into your account.
Customer support is available via Live Chat and email. Similar to its sister site, the response times are very short and the support agents are knowledgable, friendly and helpful. The website can be loaded in English, Finnish, German, Turkish and Swedish languages.
Boom Casino is committed to providing an entertaining and fun gaming experience. Part of their commitment is to endorse responsible gaming as a policy of customer care as well as social responsibility. All players can control their spending at the casino by setting various limits for deposits, losses, wagering or session length. Alternatively, they can take a break, close the account or self-exclude from the casino.
