Bompers is the third game in the ELK Gravity slot series from the developer. Inspired by the old arcade game, pinball, which it borrows its theme from, the slot is a mixed bag of unique bonus features such as shooting stars and the amusing bomper symbol. It also features a 6 column grid with up to 8 rows that are virtually tilted to replicate the real-life game.

Bompers Bonus Features
Bompers is a slot game full of dynamic and unusual bonus features. First up is the brilliant bomper, a sticky type of wild, then there are free drops, shooting stars and mystery bombs. Avalanches also bring the reels to life while the brand new X-iter feature allows you to trigger your favourite rounds for a fixed price. Though, this particular buy feature might not be enabled for UK players.
Wilds and Bompers
Forget the usual slot terminology, bomper is the new sticky wild. Standard wilds here substitute for any other regular symbols but ‘W’ bompers are sticky little things that stay in their initial place awaiting to become wilds. For them to turn wild, they have to be hit with another symbol to activate their meter. Once their inner meter is full, the bompers emerge as sticky wilds.
The little round bubbles bearing a B letter are the game’s scatters or bonus symbols. They don’t have to land in any particular way for you to activate the free drops bonus feature.
Landing 3 bonus symbols anywhere on the grid initiates the free drop feature with 7 free drops and up to 5 sticky bompers, which stay sticky for the round duration.
In contrast to the dropping symbols, and ignoring any gravitational principles, the Shooting Star always moves upwards. If it reaches the top of the grid, the star will spout a mix of up to 7 symbols with up to 3 guaranteed wilds, turning itself to a paying symbol in the process.
Mystery Bomb feature is one more opportunity for you to build some big wins in the Bompers slot. When triggered, it turns itself and all connecting symbols into a random paying symbol. Even better if the two bombs overlap. If they do, then all overlapping symbols turn into wilds.
It’s not a jackpot slot, but the intriguing bonus rounds and the max potential more than compensate for it. The max payout the slot awards is a feasible 5,000x your stake.
