Yo Ho Ho and a Bottle of Rum! Prepare yourselves for a swashbuckling adventure, me Foxy fans, ‘cause Pirates’ Plenty is back and has been given the Megaways slot treatment!
The original online slot and its sequel Pirates' Plenty Battle For Gold were a big hit with all me slot-lovin' fans. So the developers, Red Tiger Gaming, have released the third version, Pirates' Plenty Megaways, which takes all the best bits from the first two games and adds some of that Megaways magic.
Before you try to get your furry little paws on any of the pirate's gold, let's take a look at the symbols that are going to be landing. Silver coins decorated with card suits are the lower-paying symbols. The premiums are just what you'd expect to find on a pirate ship; a bottle of rum, crossed muskets, cannons, and the captain's hat. The highest paying symbol is the pirate's skull, which pays 3.5 x the stake if six land on a payline.
The game itself starts off with the standard six reels for Megaways game. Wins are formed by landing three or more matching symbols on adjacent reels, starting from the left. Any lucky foxes who complete the Wild Ways feature will have one more reel added to the grid.
The bet range for this high-volatility game is from 0.20 up to 40.00. Like all Megaways slots, the number of ways to win changes with each spin. Each reel can hold between two and seven symbols, and when they're all completely loaded there are 117, 649 ways to win available in the base game.
But once the Wild Ways bonus is triggered, this grows to a staggering 200,704 ways to win, a lot more than most Megaways games. Cascading reels also feature in this game, so once a win of three or more matching symbols on adjacent reels is formed, they explode off the reels, and other symbols tumble into their place, which can result in multiple wins from one spin.
The cheeky Monkey Wild from the original Pirate’s Plenty also appears in this game. He’ll substitute for all regular symbols to help form winning combinations. And when he appears, he’ll steal all the lower-paying symbols off the reels and grant a respin while sticking in place for that and any resulting cascades.
At the top of the grid, there's a map, with a ship on it. Any ship symbols landing on the reels move this forward one place. When the ship reaches the end of the trail, the Wild Ways extra reel is unlocked, giving up to 200,704 ways to win, and the Lady Jane Wild comes into play.
The Lady Jane Wild; this swaggering pirate princess can only land on the top position on the centre four reels. But when she does, she'll expand to cover the entire reel and grant random multipliers of up to 8 x the stake.
When three Scatters land, the Free Spins bonus round is triggered. The round starts with nine free spins, and three more are added to the total for every Scatter that lands during the round. Every win in the Free Spins increases the multiplier by + 1, and they don't reset until the round ends.
Pirates’ Plenty Megaways is just what Foxy likes to see in a sequel, all the best bits from the original game, with new features and twists added to the gameplay. Try it out today here at Foxy Bingo!
