We Go in Search of Even More Treasure in Pirates’ Plenty – Battle for Gold Slot
Videoslots Casino has recently added Red Tiger Gamings latest slot titled Pirates’ Plenty – Battle for Gold to their casino, this is another Pirate themed slot from Red Tiger with the inital title Pirates’ Plenty – The Sunken Treasure being the first in the series.
Firstly you will notice that this slot come with an initial 20 fixed paylines which after base gameplay can be unlocked to reveal a larger reel set along with 10 extra paylines “Wild Island Row” that becomes a permanent unlock on this slot for that particular bet size.
Whilst looking like an interesting concept for a slot, after a thorough playtest sessions it actually feels more like a necessary chore to go through in order to reach this slots full potential, for players who like to vary bets this will seem like an even more frustrating feature.
With that said, it did only take us a few hundred spins each time to be very close or fully unlocked on the wild row, but it is worth noting that you will need to persevere on this slot to reap the full rewards.
Along with this feature, there is also a randomly activated Wild Monkey feature that can trigger and remove all of the lowest paying symbols from the reels, potentially revealing multipliers along the way too, the main free spins round, however, is where this slot really does shine.
Triggering the bonus round does seem on average to take slightly longer than many other slots, the good news is that generally, the bonus round does tend to be very exciting and rewarding too. Triggered by landing 3 of the special scatter symbols you are then awarded a starting amount of Battle Spins.
Things to get excited about in the bonus round include sticky wilds, added wilds, multipliers and extra spins with the occasional assistance of Captain Blackbeard throwing extra sticky wilds on the reels.
For players who enjoy sticky wild slots, you most certainly will want to check this slot out as with the added excitement of wild multipliers and added extra spins this bonus round is very entertaining.
You can check out the full bonus round features in the gameplay video below.
|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!
