Free Pirate Kingdom Megaways slot
Please be patient, some games take longer to load than others!
Pirate Kingdom Megaways slot by Iron Dog Studio is their first use of the infamous Big Time Gaming licensed Megways mechanic. To be fair, it's not a bad first go at all, far better than Kalamba Games' Machina and more exciting than another recent Megaways debut game, iSoftBet's Aztec Gold Megaways. I reckon at this stage we're looking at an equivalent to Relax Gaming's first and well-received Temple Tumble Megaways which is a compliment to the design here. The game isn't too childish looking with gentle seafaring music as we play and a seascape background with many a barrel floating in the water, so will our bankroll be washed away with those or will we find treasure island?
On The Reels...
As there is no scrolling reel above the centre 4 we have a minimum of 64 to a maximum of 117,649 ways per spin here on Pirate Kingdom Megaways slot with random reel rows of 2 to 7 symbols. These can appear stacked and the best pay is 6-of-a-kind Pirate or Lady at 20x bet, Deckhand 10x, Chest or Wheel 6x with five card values of either 4 or 2x for a full way. You get single and 2x Wilds on reels 2 to 6 but can only get 3 of the 2x Wilds on any one spin for a potential 8x multiplier. All winning symbols disappear to be replaced by more cascading from above and you don't see any scatters but don't worry, we do get a good free games round!
You will see a meter of 4 anchors by the right of the grid. If you fill this by getting 4 or more winning actions in one game, you trigger 8 free spins. Any more than 4 actions will add 2 more spins to the trigger up to a maximum of 14 and during the free spins 4 actions in one spin add 2 more up to a maximum of 14 again.
There is the familiar increasing multiplier applied in the bonus, raising 1x for every action but we get another benefit too. Any full 7-row reel will remain at 7 rows throughout the bonus, including any present on the triggering spin. Further ones in the free spins do the same but will also add 1x more to the multiplier and if one comes in on the last spin it will award an extra spin and so-on. You don't get the 2x Wild though in the bonus.
Pirate Kingdom Megaways slot is an inventive addition to the Megaways format with an exciting new kind of free games variant and big win potential. You get an RTP of 96.20% but there are 5 different feature buy options in some jurisdictions ranging from 60x bet for a basic 6-spins to 260x bet for 10 spins and which start with one 7-row reel already in place. All the RTP figures for those 5 buy variations are less then the 96.20% for playing normally though, which is good. The graphics, sounds and animations are good and with the cumulative method of triggering the free games any win gives you a chance, although you may wait for a while. Yes, go get your bottle of rum and join these brigands, you may be pleasantly surprised...
