ABOUT PIRATE KINGDOM MEGAWAYS™ SLOT
There is certainly no shortage of pirate slots out there, but it’s a theme most providers have fun with. We can only assume that is why more software studios are choosing it for their new products; even large brands keep coming back to it over and over again. Take Ghost Pirates and Hook’s Heroes by NetEnt, for example, or Lucky Pirates and Loose Cannon by Microgaming. After all, both pirates and slot players seek treasure – that must be what’s bringing them closer every time a new pirate-themed machine is launched. Pirate Kingdom Megaways™ is exclusively available at Leo Vegas from November 11th2019, but its official release date is December 2nd, 2019 when it will appear on all the best slot sites.
Starting with reel cascades, though Wilds, free spins and multipliers, to locked reels and Feature Buy options, Pirate Kingdom Megaways™ is about to crush ye barnacles!
Pirate Kingdom Megaways™ Themes, Gameplay, Symbols and Pay Tables
Well, the theme is revealed in the title – this is the kingdom of pirates! They rule the 7 seas and you will see their mighty ships in the background exchanging barrels of rum. You can see the effort that went into designing the backdrop, as well as the assortment of symbols presented in the paytable. The standard selection of playing card Royals stands for the lower payout values, whereas symbols such as ship wheels, treasure chests, male and female pirates and the pirate captain deliver higher winnings.
The captain will reward you with the booty of 500x your stake if you manage to land six of his identical icons on a single spin. However, combinations with fewer symbols will pay significantly smaller sums, so you’ll need to be persistent and spin those reels for a good while to accumulate a decent bankroll. Pirate Kingdom Megaways can be played on all devices from 20p to £25 per spin.
Pirate Kingdom Megaways Features
Two pistols play the role of a standard Wild, a substitution icon. It will appear on all reels instead of the 1stone and replace regular symbols to help form winning combos. Wild action is supported by another symbol, a multiplier Wild. It also appears on reels 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 and it is depicted by a x2Wild sign. When more of them take part in a winning combination, their multiplier values are added (2 of them will give you a 4x multiplier, while 3 will multiply your wins by 8x).
This is a familiar mechanism also known as “Collapsing Reels”, “Avalanche” or “Cascading Reels”. It’s when the winning symbols disappear with new ones dropping from above to replace them. This can lead to new winning combinations and the tumbles continue until no more new wins are formed.
After 4 consecutive cascades the free spins round is automatically triggered. It starts with 8 free spins awarded and each new tumble will add 2 more. A total of 14 additional spins can be won, which means you may get to play up to 22 freebies in the bonus feature. That’s not the end of it – during the round, any reel containing 7 symbols will lock and each time this happens the multiplier is increased by 1. If you don’t wish to wait for the feature to get triggered, you can pay a fixed fee to enter the Free Spins round and you can choose the number of freebies you want to purchase.
