Gamomat is a game provider focusing on simple, high-paced online fruit slots.

The pumpkins, a lost bone, and maybe bloody sevens are all that is related to Halloween. Gamomat doesn’t like intricate themes.

Gameplay and features of the Xploding Pumpkins slot

Xploding Pumpkins is played on 5 reels with 3 rows of symbols. There are 10 fixed paylines.

Betting starts at a minimum of $€ 0.10. The maximum bet amounts to $€ 100 per spin.

What are the theoretical RTP, the variance and the maximum win of the Xploding Pumpkins Slot?

The theoretical payout percentage is 96.12%, which is pretty much the standard for Gamomat’s video fruit slots.

The maximum win is 1,000 x the bet, and you land it if you manage to spin a full screen of sevens (and/or wilds).

The variance is medium, as prizes of 500x the bet are the typical top prizes.

You need to be cautious, though.

Gamomat slots can be extremely volatile as the hit rate is low. It is possible to have dozens of spins without winning anything. As the slot is so fast, you could well lose your entire bankroll in a couple of minutes. On the other hand, don’t be surprised if you win two massive payouts in a few spins.

Symbols and payouts

The sevens are the highest paying symbol: a 5-of-a-kind on an active payline gets you a win of 100 x the total bet.

The melons and grapes are also lucrative. Five of these on a payline yields 25 x and 10 x the bet, respectively.

There are four low symbols: plum, orange, lemon, and cherry. If you manage to spin 5 of these on a payline, you get a win of 5x the bet.

The prizes are pretty high, as the hit rate is low. Remember that there are only 10 paylines.

As soon as the pumpkin appears on a roll, you’ll know there’s a nice, and sometimes even a very lovely, payout waiting for you.

Why? Because the pumpkin changes into a block of wilds. The pumpkin itself and all the surrounding (or touching) symbols, turn into wilds. The name Xploding Pumpkins could not be better!

If, for example, the pumpkin appears on the middle position of the 3rd reel, all three middle reels will change into wilds (9 wilds in total).

Our verdict on the Xploding Pumpkins slot

Xploding Pumpkins is a typical Gamomat slot.

There are no complicated features or free spins at the expense of pace.

Xploding Pumpkins has only one mini bonus feature; it is highly effective.

You shouldn’t expect too much on the visual side: what you see is what you get.

Nevertheless, it’s a slot where you can make substantial money within a few minutes. It’s ideal for impatient players.

We recommend using the hit-and-run slot strategy: this is a slot where your balance evaporates quickly. Make sure you limit your losses here.

3.5 out of 5 stars.
