Pirates’ Plenty Battle For Gold Slot – Gameplay and Features
|Pirates' Plenty Battle For Gold – Technical Summary|
|Re-Trigger Bonus Round||Extra Spins|
|Special Features||Wild Monkey
|RTP (Return To Player)||96.10%|
The wild monkey is present in base gameplay only, randomly triggered he will move across the reels and collect all of the lower-paying symbols from the reels, occasionally revelling multipliers on his journey, new high paying symbols are then dropped in to fill the reels back up and any wins are then paid out.
The slot starts with a regular 20 paylines active, once you have reached the map piece by collecting special symbols in the base game you can unlock the Wild Island row which increases the reels to a 5×4 layout and adds an additional 10 paylines into the mix.
The free spins or battle spins feature is triggered with the 3 regular scatter feature on doing so you are then awarded a varying amount of starting battle spins.
In this bonus round, sticky wilds are the key to the biggest wins and these can arrive in a variety of ways.
The wilds can land regularly from the reel strips and be held in place, or by landing a special “fire cannonball” symbol you will initiate a fight between ships where the cannonballs can either land on the reels and become sticky wilds or hit the other ship and grant extra spins.
Finally on rare occasions Cpatian Blackbeard, himself can join the battle and toss extra cannonball wilds onto the reels.
When wilds land in positions where a sticky wild is already present then this becomes a multiplier wild that can rise in value up to a 5x multiplier!
Pirates' Plenty Battle For Gold Slot
Pirates’ Plenty Battle For Gold Slot is another nice addition to Red Tiger Gamins portfolio of slots, the main negatives from our extended playtests are the unlocking of the extra paylines, which really seems like an afterthought and some kind of gimmick to hold your initial play to preserve with this slot and unlock it and the difficulty in actually triggering the bonus rounds (higher than average for us).
With those minor niggles out the way, the slot completely comes to life during the bonus round, sticky wilds alone are exciting, but with frequent additional bonus spins being awarded, wilds turning into multiplier wilds, and Captian Blackbeard throwing extra wilds onto the reels all makes for a very exciting and very rewarding bonus round feature.
In our extensive playtest we never really had a totally shocking bonus round end result, which is a nice compromise for a difficult to trigger bonus round, with bonuses varying in the range of 40x stake to well over 200x stake and obviously lots more potential if you do manage to complete full wild lines with multipliers too!
If you are a fan of high variance, sticky wilds, or pirate themed slots then this release will tick a lot of boxes for you, worth checking out purely for the exciting bonus round!
