Pragmatic Play, a leading developer of award-winning Online casino games, has kicked off June on a high after announcing a relaxing experience in Pirates Pub. This game follows the exciting adventures and theatrics of pirate life inside a pub where the mean-looking pirates could create rewarding chaos at any moment.
Pirates Pub is played on a traditional 5×3 game board where gamers can match winning symbols on up to 9 bet lines. It’s a highly volatile experience, although the 96.03% house edge should offer some consolation to casual slot machine players.
Players can match low-paying symbols, including spades, hearts, diamonds, and clubs, to receive a 0.22x to 4.44x payout for at least three of a kind. You may also be lucky to match high-value symbols such as beer cups, swords, golden coins, bottles, and pirate hats. These symbols can reward you with 0.66x to 33.33x the stake.
Meanwhile, players can land the wild scatters to trigger a payout of up to 55.55x the stake. But this symbol is special. Landing at least three wild scatters will unlock the free spins mode, with players accessing the free spin retriggers if they collect additional scatters. Remember that the maximum respins you can get in this pirate-themed experience is 15.
As that continues, players can land wilds during the first free spins stage, where they receive 8 bonus spins. If this happens, the game will use a frame to mark the locations of the Scatter Wilds that initiated the bonus. In addition, extra wilds that land on the gameboard during the bonus rounds will also be marked. Then, if a wild icon lands on the marked frames, its multiplier value will increase by 1x to 5x.
A second stage of the bonus round will begin after the first free spins round concludes. In this case, players can get up to five more bonus spins, during which all previously created frames will transform into sticky wilds or multiplier wilds. Ultimately, you will receive the total value of all the multiplier wilds contributing to a winning spin.
It’s vital to note that players can retrigger the first stage by collecting at least three wilds. However, you cannot retrigger the second stage.
In an official statement, Pragmatic Play says: “True to the treasure loving ways of pirates, Pirates Pub offers players a buildable initial bonus where their progression carries over to a second round, providing more winning potential.”
Pirates Pub is the latest addition to the developer’s fast-expanding slot library. The company releases eight slot titles monthly, with Pirates Pub joining other recent releases like Jewel Rush, Zeus vs Hades – Gods of War, and Sticky Bees.
