About Pirates' Plenty: Battle for Gold

The swashbuckling fun, the danger, the gold! We all love a pirate ship adventure, so jump aboard and play Pirates' Plenty: Battle for Gold.
If this game sounds familiar that’s because it’s a sequel. Many of you may have fond memories of the orig-inal Pirates' Plenty, a game so popular that makers Red Tiger Gaming decided to produce a bolder and bet-ter version and even huge fans of the first edition will not be disappointed.

Pirates' Plenty: Battle for Gold – How to Play

Who to strike an accord with, who the enemy is, where to sail to in order to find treasure… Pirates have some pretty big decisions to make but, in this game, you have just one important one of your own to ponder and that is how much money you want to spin for.
The minimum bet in this slots game is €0.10 and the maximum is set at €20. This is also a high volatility slot, so do keep that in mind when you choose your stake. If you go too big, a failure to activate the bonus features we take you through below could mean your bank shrinks rather quickly.
You do have the option to go for the Turbo spin, which simply makes the game go faster when hit the ‘Play’ button.

Features of Pirates' Plenty: Battle for Gold

What do we associate with pirates? Rum, cannons, poison, maps, oversized hats perhaps? These familiar items are all present in the game as symbols along with the iconic Jolly Roger, or ‘skull and crossbones’ which is in fact the highest-paying symbol giving you anything up to 30x your stake if you get five of them in a row.
In all there are 20 paylines active, rising to 30 later on which we’ll explain soon, in this 5x3-reel slot game. The graphics have improved since the original game, appearing sharper and fresher.

Pirates' Plenty: Battle for Gold – the Wild Symbol

No story of pirates and their coveted treasure would be complete without an insolent little monkey skulking in the background, and there is of course one featured here. His job is an important one too; as he is the Wild symbol.
Triggered at random, whenever the monkey is part of a win combination on the reels, he steals the lowest-paying symbols and replaces them with ones of a higher value. After that, in the style of Starburst, you can claim a re-spin meaning with all of your high-value symbols that are in situ it can end up being very profita-ble indeed!
This is especially so when every different symbol, there being four possible differing symbols, that the monkey replaces you can be awarded an extra multiplier, up to 4 times, which is applied to any win you’ve amassed during your re-spin.

Features of Pirates' Plenty: Battle for Gold

The Wild symbol, and all it brings with it when it makes an appearance, is a feature of the game in its own right and is called the Wild Monkey Feature. That’s not terribly original of course, but at least it is not the only feature available as we’ll see.

The ‘Wild Island Row’ Feature

We touched earlier on the fact that there are occasionally 30 active paylines rather than the normal 20, and here’s how that can happen.
Each time a map symbol lands it is collected in the meter shown above the reels. This then sends the ship closer to its ultimate destination with the next stop being wherever our pirates are due to get up to no good. As soon as you have enough map symbols in place and reach your next destination a new, sixth row will reveal itself and there you have an extra 10 paylines.

Battle Spins – a Free Spins Feature

It’s time to get into the Scatter symbol now. Should you get three Battle Spins symbols, a rare occurrence in a slot game, you will get yourself a random amount of free spins instead of a predetermined number.
There is an important character in the game we’ve yet to touch on, and that is the infamous Blackbeard. The iconic pirate captain runs a very tight ship here and is very much the man in charge. He also happens to be the one throwing the bombs out during your free spins round.
These remain sticky for the remainder of the round and can either add free spins on your total or come with a Multiplier, giving you with up to 5 times the value of your original win.
Watch out for Fire! Symbols too. When they land, they can fire cannonballs and should they land on the reels they’ll change normal symbols to Wilds, Wilds into larger Wilds and increasing the Multiplier on your next win. They can also give you extra free spins.

Final Conclusion on Pirates’ Plenty: Battle for Gold

 

While some sequels only serve to ruin the success of an original slot, fans of the first Pirates’ Plenty will absolutely not be disappointed with this game and all it has to offer. Having had a face lift in terms of its general appearance, this game has vastly improved the bonus features on offer.
As a high volatility slot game, it will be the Battle Spins free spins that can make or break you. The bombs and the Fire! Symbols can cause some, in this case positive, damage putting multipliers in place, locking Wilds on the reels and delving out free spins which can make this one of the most lucrative free spins rounds available.
