The adventures of Pirates have been the theme of many slot games, and the Buccaneers Bounty slot is one of the best games in this genre. This game was developed by Wager Logic, but is now under the umbrella of the premier developer Amaya Gaming.
Buccaneers Bounty has five reels and up to twenty pay lines, and the graphics and animations are stunning. The setting is the idyllic tropical island, with palm trees waving in the breeze, and a pirate ship at anchor in the distance in the clear blue bay. An orchestra accompanies the reels as they spin.
Symbols are All Pirate Related
The symbols in the base game of Buccaneers Bounty are drawn in a cartoon like way, and all reflect the pirate theme. There is the glamorous red headed Lady Captain wielding a sword, a Scallywag the Island and a Map, a Skull with crossed swords and three gold Coins. There is also the obligatory Parrot and a Cannon, and several Barrels of Rum. The Captain is the symbol with the highest value, and the medium value symbol is the Scallywag. The Wild symbol is a Treasure Chest full of gold, and it will replace any other symbol in the game to form winning combinations, apart from the Scatter. The Scatter symbol is the black Pirate Ship against the blue sky, and that will activate the main bonus feature.
Treasure Chest Wild Bonus Coins
The Treasure Chest Wild will award bonus coins, depending on how many land on the reels in a single spin. One Wild will earn you two bonus coins, and two Wilds will give you ten. Three Treasure Chests appearing will award you with 175 coins, and four will reward you with a generous one thousand coins. If you manage to find five of the Treasure Chest Wilds appearing together in a single spin, you will be rewarded with a huge six thousand coins.
Shooting Cannonballs at Ships
There is a very interesting bonus game in Buccaneers Bounty. If you land the Treasure Chest symbol anywhere on reels one and five in a single spin, the Treasure Chest bonus game is triggered. You will be taken to another screen, where you can choose to be either an Island Defender or a Pillaging Pirate. The principle of the game is to have ten cannonball shots at various ships as they pass by. You just click on a ship and watch one of the cannons try to hit it. If it is a hit, a number will appear showing the multiplier that has been won. This number can be as high as twenty five times your initial bet. If you miss there will be a red X instead of a green check. When you have shot all ten cannonballs your score will be counted, and you will return to the base game.
The Free Spins round in Buccaneers Bounty is activated when you land three or more of the Pirate Ships Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. You receive ten free spins, and all wins made during this round will be doubled. You can reactivate the free spins round by landing more of the Pirate ships while playing this round.
Buccaneers Bounty offers players an action packed game with some unique and exciting bonus rounds, and should appeal to all slot players. This slot is available on your computer as well as on your mobile device in the similar way the FIFA Cup betting odds available online in NZ.
