Pirate-themed slot machines are always attracting the attention of slot machine players due to their adventurous and rewarding nature. It becomes even better if the game houses thousands of winning ways from the Megaways engine from Big Time Gaming.
Well, on February 28, 2023, GamArt, a leading online slot developer, announced the debut of Pirate’s Pearl Megaways. This new slot machine features up to six cascading reels and the Megaways mechanic, allowing players to enjoy up to 117,649 ways to win.
This release follows the success of their recent title, Rosh Immortality Cube Megaways. Pirate’s Pearl Megaways is the first Megaways slot release in 2023 from the slot developer.
The game takes players to a bruising Ocean Battle, where they can be rewarded with features such as Yo-Ho-Ho! Megaways Respins, Free Spins Gamble, Buy Bonus, and Sea Storm.
Its six cascading reels give players plenty of chances to win, as winning symbols are blown out of the reels and replaced with new ones. Of course, this continues until no winning combination is on the reels.
The player’s main objective is to sink their adversary’s ship in the Ocean Battle feature. This bonus feature initiates whenever players collect 100 Mystery Ships.
Then, once the Ocean Battle has begun, the player and their adversary get six turns to strike and sink the other’s ship. Every time the player successfully lands a hit, they are rewarded with a random multiplier of either x2 or x1,000. If the player succeeds in striking four times, the sum of the multipliers doubles, and if they hit six times, they will receive x10,000 of their original wager.
In addition, whenever gamers collect 45 Mystery Ships, the Yo-ho-ho! Megaways Respins are activated. Each respin increases the Megaways, allowing players to gain up to 117,649 ways to win.
The Sea Storm is another feature to watch out for and is activated whenever 16 Mystery Ships are acquired. Once the storm is unleashed, all low-paying symbols will disappear from the reels, leaving only mid- and high-paying symbols to cascade and cover the empty spaces.
If the gambler can acquire five or more Scatters, they will get up to 22 Free Spins and a beginning multiplier of up to x10. The player can take a Gamble and raise the amount of Free Spins and the initial multiplier before entering the Free Spins round.
As expected, the Pirate’s Pearl Megaways slot offers players the opportunity to purchase Ocean Battle or Free Spins rounds with the Bonus Buy feature. However, this feature is not a part of the branded title because players in regions such as the UK cannot access it.
