Pirate Pays Megaways is an upcoming slot from Big Time Gaming, where they are mixing the hugely popular pirate adventure theme with the equally popular Megaways system. Designed to create highly volatile and highly entertaining slots, this engine is used in hundreds of games right now, and rightfully so. As you will see in this case, it has great winning potential and the features tend to contribute a little to the fun too.
6 reels are featured in Pirate Pays Megaways and can be used to deliver anywhere from a few hundred to as many as 117,649 ways to win. Through them, and the rest of the features included, you could claim a higher max win worth 15,500 times your stake (€ 310,000 in cash). The slot has high volatility, but with the Return to Player at 96.23%. Several excellent features are included, such as wilds, cascading reels, free spins, a growing multiplier and scatters.
You can spend between 0.20 cents and 20 euros for each shot of Pirate Pays Megaways. This will give you line bets of 0.01 to 1.
You will find a standard Megaways configuration, with 6 regular reels and with an extra horizontal reel placed at the bottom of reels 2-5. Up to 117,649 Megaways are available each round, with 2 to 7 symbols randomly assigned to each of those reels.
Cascading Reels will activate after each win, so you have the option to continue forming new combinations, when the symbols involved are removed and replaced with new ones.
The jokers are landing both in the normal playing area and on the horizontal reel from below. They’ll be used as standard substitutes, so it’s easier to make combinations when they’re out and about.
It’s a pirate-themed game, so its design typically goes one of two directions. Either we are on a tropical island and we are digging for treasures, or we are on a ship. It is the latter here and the 6 rollers are positioned on the rear side of the ship, with the ocean waters visible on the sides.
Among the symbols of the slot, we discover a collection of Royals in the low paying positions (9 to A). The best ones feature gems with pirate motifs (crossed swords, ship’s rudder, etc.). Wilds and scatters are also in play.
