Red Tiger Gaming are known for producing slots that are beautifully designed with stunning animations, rich colours and intricate graphics and Pirates’ Plenty will not disappoint. The game window is set amidst a sunken ship complete with an oil lamp on each side providing some sparse illumination to the setting. Players will notice that the scenery changes when they reach the free spins round to show the ship on the sea bed with an abundance of gold treasures spread around waiting for the pirates to collect. There is a marching style soundtrack which combined with the usual reel and win noises providing the perfect ambience. The pay symbols are stunning, and it is obvious that the developers have taken care to continue with the intricate designs with the lower paying symbols consisting of gold coins complete with the card suits, clubs, diamonds, spades and hearts. These are then followed by a medieval pistol, a bottle of grog, the captain’s hat, a mighty cannon and the skull of a pirate.
The pirate skull can appear super stacked on any spin whilst all of the others appear singularly or in stacks of up to three symbols high. There are three wild symbols on offer these being a random monkey wild, a reel wild and a ship in a bottle and they can all appear in the base game, whilst there are even more wilds that can be unleashed in the Ocean free spins. The scatter is depicted by a round tile that clearly displays the word Ocean Spins.
The slot has three types of wild symbols. A random monkey wild and reel-tall ships in a bottle wilds appear in the base game, while extra wilds can be unlocked in the Ocean free spins round. Scatters are an intricate round tile marked with Ocean Spins. On the right hand side of the game window players will notice that the treasure reel is prominently features and this displays an old map complete with marker for seeing where the treasure is hiding.
This does need to be unlocked for each different bet range and this is done by landing the map symbols during the base game. For every symbol that lands on the reels the pirate ship will advance one step and when I played, I worked out that it would take about 200 spins to reach the target. Each bet size also saves the progress the player makes and once they have unlocked the feature the game window increases to show the six reels and the reel and tall bottle wilds are added to all of the reels. Each wild is marked with a multiplier that ranges from x1 to x5 when it lands during a spin.
Players need to keep watch for the monkey thief as he can randomly make an appearance on any spin in the base game and will steal the gold coins from the lower value symbols, whilst the higher value symbols drop into place and the monkey turns wild on the last place where he stole a low value symbol. This is a high variance slot with an RTP of over 96% and one that I enjoyed immensely and would highly recommend.
