LeoVegas Casino has recently added Iron Dog Studio’s first Megaways slot to their casino titled Pirate Kingdom which is a pirate-themed slot with a few novel features and bonus functions that should hopefully set it apart from the ever-growing list of Megaways slots. Currently an exclusive until the 2nd of December for Leo Vegas, so if you are looking forward to checking this slot out for yourself Leo Vegas is your casino of choice!
At the core, this slot plays out like you would expect a regular Megaways slot to, with randomly determined winning ways created with each spin, and a maximum reel size of 7 giving an impressive maximum 117,649 winning ways and a stated 40,000x bet max win!
The key features to this slot that set this apart from other Megaways is the firstly the way that the bonus round is triggered, rather than regular scatters on this slot you are looking for 4 continuous wins in a row coming from the tumbling reels effect, this is tracked to the right-hand side of the slot making it easy to keep track of.
Secondly, Iron Dog has also included a buy a bonus feature, where you can skip the base gameplay entirely and jump into the bonus round feature, with the added twist that you can configure how many free starting free spins you get and if any reels will be initially locked with 7 symbols always showing.
It’s definitely worth taking this slot for a spin in test mode, to check through how each option affects the cost of buying a bonus round, as an example for a £2 stake, selecting the best option of 10 free spins with 1 locked reel costs £260 or 130x stake size, you can toggle on or off these options to tailor your bonus round.
There is no denying that most of the megaways slots are capable under the right conditions of producing some huge wins, but it is worth noting that many of the bonus rounds we had in our testing failed to come close to covering the cost of the bonus round, again further reasons to check this option out for yourself in fun mode first!
There are a couple of nice innovations in the bonus round, full re-triggers are possible with 4 successive tumbling wins, and if a 7 symbols reel is created during the free spins it becomes locked at this maximum setting for the duration of the bonus round, effectively permanently giving you extra winning ways!
It certainly isn’t the prettiest Megaways slot we’ve played, but we did love the innovation in the bonus round and obvious win potential if every reel gets locked at 7 symbols and you get a few re-triggers!
