Pirates – Smugglers Paradise is a 5 reel game that is 5 symbols high. You land wins when you form clusters of 6 or more matching symbols across adjacent reels. When you land a cluster of 6 matching symbols, that symbol will become the winning symbol for that spin. This means that any other symbols that match will also remain on the reels. All winning symbols will drop down and the losing symbols will disappear, with new symbols added. If you form another cluster of 6 symbols or add to the existing ones the drop down will happen again. If you form more than one cluster with different symbols in each then the cluster with the lowest value symbols will switch to match the cluster with the highest paying symbols.
This slot is pirate themed, taking a light-hearted cartoonish approach to the design.
Wild – There are no Wilds in this slot.
Free Spins – The “Scroll” is the Free Spins symbol. You need 3 or more of the Free Spins symbols to trigger the feature.
Multiplier – If you can fill a row with matching symbols then you will trigger the Win Multiplier. If you can fill more rows on the same spin then you will increase the multiplier further. The values for it are at the side of the reels and once your dropdowns have concluded for a single spin the multiplier will reset.
Free Spins – If you land 3 Free Spins symbols you will be given 7 Free Spins in total. There are 3 different Free Spins modes for you to choose from:
Win Fall – If you choose this modifier then 2 additional winning symbols will be added on each dropdown.
High Seas – If you choose this modifier then all the low paying symbols will be removed from the reels.
Multiplier Madness – If you choose this modifier then the multiplier will not reset at the end of each dropdown, and will instead accumulate throughout the Free Spins feature.
