Xploding Pumpkins is a video slot from Gamomat that was first released in 2019. The game is Halloween-themed, and while the graphics are somewhat basic, there’s a nice ambient soundtrack accompanying every spin – something we’re always appreciative to see.
Xploding Pumpkins slot game is built around a 5-reel, 3-row format with 10 paylines. These paylines are non-adjustable, so you can’t change how many active lines there are. In terms of betting limits, Xploding Pumpkins allows you to wager as little as 1 credit per spin – and there’s a maximum bet of 5,000 credits. These betting options mean that the minimum bet is quite high – so low rollers may not find the game to be overly appealing. The maximum bet, however, is more than enough.
In terms of the game’s symbols, most of them are fruits; you’ll see cherries, lemons, oranges, plums, and grapes. The cherries are the lowest paying symbol, awarding a payout of 50X your bet for a 5-of-a-kind combo. There are two higher-paying symbols – the Red 7 and the watermelon. The former is the top-paying symbol, and a 5-of-a-kind combo of it awards a whopping 1,000X your total bet!
Xploding Pumpkins is classed as being a medium variance video slot, which means wins are fairly consistent – although rarely too big. The slot machines’ RTP is 96.12%, which is quite healthy for a Gamomat slot, and is well above the industry average.
Unfortunately, there is no conventional free spins bonus round in Xploding Pumpkins; nor will you find a “pick me bonus” or an RHFP mechanic. In fact, the only bonus, per se, is the wild mechanic. The Pumpkin symbol is the wild and can land on all five reels. When it does, it substitutes for all of the game’s other symbols.
However, it also has one more unique feature; the pumpkin symbol will explode when involved with a win. It then transforms itself – and all surrounding symbols – into wild symbols. This means if you manage to land a pumpkin symbol in the middle position on the third reel, the three middle reels will transform into fully wild reels!
In some versions of Xploding Pumpkins, there is also a gamble feature. However, this doesn’t always appear to be the case, so it’s best to check with the online casino you’re playing at to see whether it’s on offer or not.

Xploding Pumpkins, like most of the video slots from Gamomat, has a high RTP – it’s set in place at 96.12%. When we say set in place, we mean that Gamomat only offers one version of Xploding Pumpkins. In other words, unlike game developers like Netent and Play’n Go, Xploding Pumpkins isn’t available in different RTP settings.
Xploding Pumpkins is developed around a 5-reel, 3-row format. There are 10 paylines, all fixed in place – meaning you cannot adjust the number of lines active on each spin.
Any time you land a wild symbol on the screen, it will explode. The adjacent symbols will then all be transformed into wild symbols, making it possible to get up to three full reels of wild symbols!
No, Xploding Pumpkins isn’t one of Gamomat’s slots to have the RHFP mechanic built in. As a result, there are no progressive jackpots on offer.
