Pirates Bounty Megaways Review
Pirates Bounty Megaways is another game in the megaways series from Blueprint Gaming, one of the major game providers in this field. You can already guess the theme of the game (pirates), but the game has plenty of unexpected things to offer! However, it also has enough standard megaways elements, so you will get the hang of the basic game quite quickly. In this review you will learn everything about this game, such as the symbols, features, and bonus round.
Where to play Pirates Bounty Megaways for real money?
RTP en Variance
The RTP, or return to player, for this game will be between 96.12% and 96.21%. This means that the casino returns this percentage of all bets back to the players. The volatility or variance is high. A high volatility means that you win less frequently, but large amounts.
The design of the game looks beautiful, and the pirate theme is unmissable due to the background and accompanying music! It also has a playing field of 6 reels, of which the middle 4 have an extra box on top. At the top left you can see the number of valid megaways, and below are a number of bonuses. You will also see a reference to the menu here, while on the right side you will find the button with which you start each turn. You can also determine your bet on the right or switch on the autoplay. The bottom edge of the game provides some additional information about your balance, bet, and win amount.
How does Pirates Bounty Megaways work?
There are a total of a maximum of 117,649 megaways per turn, thanks to the 6 reels with up to 7 symbols. The middle 4 reels have an extra box on top so that they contain at least 3 symbols, while the 1st and last reel have at least 2 symbols. Furthermore, combinations can only be made that start from the first reel, and often this requires 3 identical symbols on consecutive reels. Later in this review you can read more about the features (cascading and mystery symbols) and the bonus round! Before you start playing, you must first choose your bet. For example, the minimum bet is only 0.10 euros while you can bet a maximum of 100 euros! After this you can start the game by using the spin button or autoplay function. Unfortunately you no longer have any influence on the results, and hopefully you will unlock the features or bonus round!
The Symbols & Payouts
The symbols are divided into a number of categories, which are listed below. Each category has the necessary information about the symbols and payouts:
- 6 basic symbols that are formed by the card symbols 9 to A. These are the so-called low paying symbols.
- There are 4 premium symbols consisting of Ships, Mermaids, Octopi, and Skull & Crossbones.
- Of course there is a wild symbol, which can also replace all symbols (except the scatter symbol) in this game. However, this only occurs on the 4 extra squares in the middle.
- The bonus symbol can help you reach one of the bonus rounds.
This feature cannot be missing with a megaways version of Blueprint. Mystery symbols appear on the playing field in different amounts at random times. Then they all change into the same symbol, increasing the chance of large combinations.
This feature means that symbols of winning combinations give way to new symbols. This will increase the chance of new combinations. In addition, the cascades in this game function as a bonus symbol, with which you can unlock 1 of the 3 bonus round.
Pirates Bounty Free Spins Bonus round
Which bonus you activate depends on the number of bonus symbols you collect. With 4, 5, or 6 symbols you unlock the bonus, super bonus, or mega bonus respectively. You then continue to play on a bonus wheel, which will determine how many free spins you get. Below we give an overview per bonus what the differences are. Keep in mind that the outer edge is level 1, the middle circle level 2, and the inner part level 3 (20 free spins):
- Bonus: You can win 8, 10 or 12 free spins on the outer rim of the wheel. You can also take instant cash prizes of 12x, 16x, or 40x your bet! The green arrow means you level up!
- Super Bonus: With the middle circle you can win 12, 13, 15, 16, or 18 free spins. Again, the green arrow can help you to level 3.
- Mega Bonus: Level 3 immediately gives you 20 free spins.
When you start playing the bonus round with a certain number of free spins, you start with a multiplier of x1. This increases by +1 for each winning combination! You can also earn even more free spins during the bonus round by spinning at least 3 bonus symbols.
Max win & Rating
We estimate that you can win about 10,000x your stake with this game. In addition, we give it a rating of 3/5 stars.
The main reason Pirates Bounty Megaways™ only sticks to an average score is the fact that we already know most things from other games. Still, we really like the bonus round because of the wheel that has been added to it. There are also plenty of features that can help you win great prices. All in all, certainly sufficient!
