On May 16, 2023, Peter & Sons, a fast-rising online pokies developer, announced that players would go on a thrilling journey with Barbarossa Doublemax. In this highly volatile adventure, players are tasked with uncovering the ultimate pirate loot that can reach 20,000x the stake. But don’t worry because Peter & Sons will arm you with all you need to complete the mission, including wild Cascades, Free Spins, and the Golden Bet feature.
That said, Pirate Barbarossa Doublemax happens on a typical formation of 5 reels and 3 rows, where players have up to 243 winning ways. This means gamers don’t need to worry about bet lines because they only need to match symbols on 3 adjacent reels to receive a payout. The winning formation must start from the leftmost reel.
The developer did a solid job symbolically, as you’ll immediately feel the pirate vibe with a mere glance at the icons. The liquor bottles, pocket compasses, steering wheels, revolvers, and anchors are the low-paying symbols, rewarding you with up to 3x the stake for five of a kind. The two male and female pirates and the red-bearded captain (Barbarossa) are the premium icons, whereas the wild can substitute all icons except the bonus symbols.
Meanwhile, every winning combination on the reels will trigger the Cascade feature, replacing all winning icons with new ones. But before this happens, the game will add a wild symbol to a random position. Note that the Cascade continues as long as you have a winning combination. In addition, the game will reward you with a 2x multiplier for each cascading reel. Peter & Sons don’t rule out the possibility of the multiplier skipping to reward gamers with 3x the stake.
Another feature that will entice pirate-themed slot fans is the Free Spins bonus. Players can trigger the bonus mode after landing 3+ scatters anywhere on the reels. In return, the game will reward them with 7 bonus spins and 2 additional games for every scatter they collect in the bonus rounds. Even better, the reel multipliers don’t reset during the Free Spins mode.
Pirate Barbarossa Doublemax adds a Golden Bet feature to the gameplay to increase your chances of triggering the free spins. With this feature, you can double your free spins chances by paying 50% more than the standard wager.
Remember that the Golden Bet feature is separate from the Bonus Buy. Gamers can purchase 7 bonus spins for 100x the initial stake or 7-11 spins for 200x the stake. However, this feature isn’t available to all players due to regulatory restrictions for online casinos.
