The Boss gathered a slew of slots softwares ranging from NetEnt, IGT, WMS to Bally, must say we’re impressed by the operator’s sleek gaming interface. The slot games contain in-play bonus modes like free spins, substituting wilds, scatter pays as well as pick me features. We recommend NetEnt’s Gonzo’s Quest (high volatility), Finn and the Swirly Spin, IGT’s Siberian Storm and Playtech’s Justice League (https://casinowhizz.com/slots/justice-league-slot-review/). What we like about the games is that BGO gives a short description of each such as its RTP (return to player percentage), iGaming vendor and the bonus features.
If you’re not into slots you can head on over to the tables where you can play baccarat, craps, roulette and blackjack.
