Pirate Gold Slot Review Features And Bonus
One feature you can benefit from is called ‘Lucky Treasure Bag‘, this feature is triggered when 8 or more money symbols land during a spin, all normal symbols will disappear leaving room for money bag, retrigger, multiplier symbols and empty spaces. You are awarded 3 respins, every time a money bag symbols lands the re-spin counter will reset to 3. This feature will continue until all spins have been used or all spaces have been filled. This feature plays identically to the base game feature in Wolf Gold also produced by Pragmatic Play. These bags have different values based on the stake and also can be each jackpot value, multipliers can be 2x,3x or 5x, total amount won is multiplied by these multipliers if they land. When a retrigger symbol lands a new feature is awarded which starts from the beginning with the same starting grid from the previous round.
To trigger the bonus feature you need to land 3 scatter symbols on reels 2,3 and 4. This will award 10 free spins, during these spins the 2 top symbols will transform into wilds on reels 2,3,4 and 5. You can also retrigger these spins by landing 3 scatters again on reels 2,3 and 4 for an additional 10 free spins. Also, special reels are used for this feature.
Pirate Gold Slot Review Conclusion
Overall, this game does have some old features reused but the slot itself is very volatile and fun. The theme is saturated but the visuals and artwork are very well made. I look forward to Pragmatic Play’s future releases and hope they continue making volatile slots. Remember to check out all the offers we have on hand, as well as checking out our Twitch stream.
