Plentiful piracy Red Tiger Gaming has released Megaways, the third installment in their famous Pirates’ Plenty slot series. The first two parts of the series were titled The Sunken Treasure and Battle for Gold, respectively. This new installment keeps what made the previous games so enjoyable for fans, but also introduces enough changes to keep things interesting. The addition of Big Time Gaming’s Megaways mechanic is one of the most noticeable improvements, as suggested by the title.
Megaways Format With A Plethora Of Pirates
When you first start up the Pirates’ Plenty Megaways game, you’ll be at the foot of a pair of stairs heading up to the ship’s top deck. The setting is rich in detail, with gold coins strewn across the stairs, bombs lying about just in case, and a tentacle lurking menacingly off to the left.
Each of the game’s six reels can have anywhere from two to seven rows. Similar to other Megaways games, the number of rows changes with each spin; the more rows there are, the more ways there are to win. The middle four reels have a bonus row across the top that can be useful down the line. With that extra row in play, the total number of possible outcomes increases to 200,704.
The lower-value symbols are represented by four circular tokens, each of which displays either a club, diamond, heart, or spade. Bottle, pistols, cannon, pirate helmet, and skull and crossbones are all high-value emblems. The scatter symbol is the Free Spins logo.
The game’s symbols are shown on blocks due of the cascading wins mechanic. To make way for a deluge of new symbols to come into play, the screen will clear of any symbols that contribute to a winning combination. With this function, you can increase the number of possible winning combinations with each rotation of the reels.
In addition, the Wild Monkey icon is a possible grid component. By doing so, he will hide the lesser-value symbols that are currently in view. After that, he’ll stay put throughout the cascade, acting as a wild to boost your chances of winning.
Features the Wild Ways
The game may also feature the appearance of a map icon. If you collect enough maps, a ship will be able to make its way over the top row, which is located above the middle four reels. Reaching the other side will activate a special Wild Ways function. By doing so, the top reel is unlocked and the maximum of 200,704 ways to win are activated, with Lady Anne Wild expanding to fill it.
Lady Anne can only appear on the first, unlocked reel, but she will take up the entire reel when she does. She not only substitutes for other symbols (wild) but also serves as a multiplier (up to x8).
Bonus Round of Free Spins
Three or more Free Spins symbols anywhere on the reels will launch the bonus round. For the first three scatters, you’ll receive nine free games, and for each successive scatter, you’ll receive three more free games.
Here, a Rising Win Multiplier counter will show up above the sixth reel. The active multiplier will grow by 1 after each victory. That’s because the multiplier value can climb surprisingly quickly to help you land some incredible prizes, and it applies to separate cascade wins as well.
More Free Spins symbols can appear on the reels during this bonus game. If you get three more, you’ll retrigger the free spins with the Rising Wild Multiplier still increasing.
An Unbeatable Teaming
“Pirates’ Plenty has been hugely popular with players over the last year, and we’re sure the addition of MegaWaysTM to this latest title will further build on the success of this game series,” said Todd Haushalter, Chief Product Officer at Evolution. We can’t wait for Pirates’ Plenty MegaWaysTM to go live because we know it will be a huge hit thanks to the combination of a tried-and-true mechanic and a widely played gaming series.
