Red Tiger has consistently delivered on awesome online slots for the last couple of years. The fact they were bought out by the legendary NetEnt just shows how talented the studio is!
Not that new management has slowed the team down any. They are still producing some of the best games our industry has to offer. You will see it for yourself!
That is, after facing off against symbol collection, icon substitution, the Wild island row and free spins bonuses.
Theme, Graphics, Sounds
When it comes to picking a theme, you cannot go wrong with pirates. Plundering riches and living a life of ultimate freedom? It is a dream of many, and Red Tiger uses incredible graphics to sell it.
Gorgeous visuals are par for course for this software provider. However, they have outdone themselves with the ship battles during free spins!
Animations and art style come together to create something magnificent in that all too brief special feature.
The developers decided not to rock the board when it comes to the reels. The way they have been styled is quite cool.
Functionality wise, it offers a familiar five-reel, three-row playing field we often see. Special features allow three rows to turn into four.
The number of paylines also increases, from twenty to thirty! To win, land three or more identical symbols in adjacent positions, starting with the leftmost reel.
Ideally, you want to unlock the extra fourth reel as soon as possible. However, this all comes down to how lucky you get.
To unlock the Wild island row, you need to collect fifty map icons. This unlock is only active for your current bet level.
You cannot unlock it by betting $1 per spin, and then increase your wager to $20. It will remain unlocked only for the wagers you have already unlocked.
The benefit of unlocking the extra row is that it also introduces new Wild symbols to the reels. These Wilds can appear with or without win multipliers.
Multipliers range from 2x to 5x. If more than one multiplier is present in a winning combination, the multipliers stack.
For example, two 3x multipliers will result in a 9x multiplier being applied to the final win.
All good pirate captains have their own Wild Monkey. This trained primate will rush to the reels, removing all low-value icons from the board.
This allows new, higher paying symbols to appear and take their place. The last removed icon transforms into the Wild Monkey. This bonus cannot be activated during free spins.
Pirates Plenty Battle for Gold Free Spins
Join Captain Blackbeard in a battle against his rivals by landing three Battle Spins Scatters. These Scatters can appear anywhere on the playing field.
They do not need to be adjacent to one another to activate the special feature. A random number of free spins are awarded and are played immediately. Any Wilds that appear during Battle Spins will be locked in place.
Occasionally, you will see the Fire symbol land on the board. This will fire one or more cannonballs at the enemy ship.
If they hit the reels, they turn into Wilds. If they hit the enemy ship, you get an extra free spin!
If a cannonball lands on an existing Wild, it increases its multiplier by one. A maximum of two Fire icons can appear simultaneously.
The Captain is also active during the battle. He will randomly appear on screen, throwing Wild bombs at the reels. This increases your odds of forming a win.
Where To Play Pirates Plenty Battle for Gold?
RTP, bet sizes and volatility
Nothing is perfect, no matter how hard it tries to reach that goal.
With an RTP of 95.72%, Red Tiger’s release falls just under the average of 96%. While disappointing, the rest of what this slot has to offer more than makes up for it.
You can bet between $0.20 and $20 on each spin. This is a good betting spread for casual audiences. However, we had hoped to see some bigger bets made available for high rollers.
Make no mistake; this is an awesome game for advantage players. It has a high volatility that makes it difficult to land impressive prizes.
However, its top prize is slightly more than 5000x your total stake. Very tempting loot for any prospective pirates out there!
Pirates Plenty Battle for Gold has kept us glued to our screens for days. It does not bring anything revolutionary to the table.
However, its combination of mouth-watering animations and excellent special features will attract many players.
Really, our only complaint stems from a slightly below average RTP. Everything else is top notch.
This game is not one to be missed! All aboard sailors – the treasures await!
We give this slot 4 out of 5 stars.
