Yo ho ho – it’s time to join up with the band of swag-seeking pirates in the Pirate Kingdom Megaways slot from Iron Dog Studio. There are adventures on the high seas ahead if you opt to join this ship of swashbucklers, and that could even lead to a top cash payout of x40,000.
Pirates are a popular theme with slot developers, and Iron Dog Studio have now tossed its hat into the ring with Pirate Kingdom Megaways. The large reels are in the centre but appear to be floating on a turbulent sea with large waves crashing in the backdrop. With barrels floating in the water and a ship visible in the distance, you’ll be able to make out the Jolly Roger on the sails marking the vessel out as pirates!
The Megaways layout means that there’s plenty of variation every time you spin the reels. The board delivers a different combination on every spin, with up to seven symbols on each of the six reels. This means a maximum of 117,649 ways to win if every reel contains the full complement of seven symbols. Betting follows the standard Megaways structure with a min bet of 0.20 and the top bet of 25.00 total per spin.
These pirates aren’t keen to give too much away, but with an RTP of 96.2%, it’s just a whisker over the average for the market. However, the volatility is as high as the wild seas, so you’ll need to hold on for dear life while waiting for the big wins to land.
The playing card royals open up the paytable in a rather mundane form, although they are offered in an embellished pirate-style font. The high pays include the ship’s wheel, a treasure chest and three different pirates. Two wild symbols can land on reels 2-6. Both of these can substitute for any of the regular pays to land a win.
The first wild is a simple wild, but the second carries a multiplier of x2. If more than one multiplier wilds land, they can be multiplied together up to a maximum of x8.
After every win, a tumble occurs. This means that the winning symbols are removed, and new symbols drop into position. This cycle will keep on repeating until no new wins are formed. After each tumble, an anchor will appear above the reels; if you get four consecutive tumbles and four anchors, you’ll unlock the free spins bonus.
During the bonus round, you’ll receive eight free spins; if you hit four consecutive tumbles during the bonus round, you’ll receive two extra free spins and two extra free spins for every additional tumble.
If seven symbols land during free spins, the reel is locked at seven symbols for the rest of the bonus round. A locked reel also adds +1 to the multiplier. Every tumble will also add +1 to the multiplier, which doesn’t reset for the bonus duration.
