I Pirati del Bounty
The name I Pirati del Bounty means The Pirate's Bounty, and this title by Capecod Gaming uses a mix of 2D and 3D graphics to bring the pirate theme to life. The visual effects are solid, and there's plenty of action with two different bonus features and a ton of symbols that you'd expect from a pirate game based out on the sea. You'll see the horizon in the background with a beautiful sunset as you play as well.
The basic layout of this pirate-themed slot has three rows and five reels along with 15 paylines spread across them. You'll choose a bet size per line instead of dealing with coin sizes and a number of coins per payline, and it starts with a $0.01 line bet wager size at bottom end. The largest line bet wager is $1, so the total betting range for the game goes from $0.15 to $15. This will cover most players, but high rollers will probably want to find a game that has higher betting limits.
It's worth pointing out that players do have the option to play with fewer than 15 paylines since they aren't locked in this game. However, we strongly recommend against it since it will bring down your RTP percentage. If you need a smaller wager size, use the available bet sizes per line to pick something that fits your bankroll management strategy instead of cutting down on the number of paylines used.
Wilds and Wild Multipliers
There are two different wild symbols in a sense in this game. They are both a woman pirate with a skull and crossbones on her hat and an eye patch. However, one of them has a 2x symbol. These wilds show up on all reels, and they substitute for anything other than the scatter symbols. The key here is to recognize that the 2x wild gives you double the payout whenever at least one of them are included in a winning combination, and that gives you a chance to get even larger payouts than what's available from the regular pay table.
Free Spins Bonus Feature
In this video slot, you'll get a shot at some free spins if you pick up three or more of the scattered ship symbol. Three earns five free spins, four gets you 10 free spins, and five of them awards 20 free spins. These free spins can be re-triggered, giving you a significant boost to their value, but they don't have any extra features that make them more valuable than standard spins in the base game.
Cannon Bonus Feature
The cannon symbol shows up on every reel, and five of a kind gets you a shot at the Cannon Bonus Feature. You get eight shots to knock out cannons on the opposing ship. You'll get a random payout once you go through all eight cannon balls if you're able to knock out an enemy cannon.
Top Payouts and Wins
Other than the progressive jackpot, five of the pirate captain is the best win, and it'll give you 1,000x. You can earn 500x for five of the flag or 250x for five of the gold. The chest gets you 250x for five of a kind as well. A 150x win is yours for five of a kind with the parrot or the skeleton pirate, and that's the same payout for five of the cannonball symbol.
The lowest three payouts are the card rank symbols K, Q and J. They are blue, green and red, respectively, and they are decorated with pearls and gold. Each of them will also pay 100x for five of a kind, and that's reasonable for the lowest five of a kind win in a slot in general.
While these symbols aren't the best-looking in the industry by far, they do show more of an effort by Capecod Gaming than what we normally see in terms of rendered 3D graphics.
I Pirati del Bounty is a fairly mediocre slot overall. It offers a few different features with the wild multipliers, cannonball feature and free spins, but nothing about it stands out as being different than hundreds of other generic online slots. The pirate theme itself is also pretty generic, so we can't really say that this is in the top class of slots overall. With that having been said, it's not bad for what it is, and there are probably some players who will find enjoyment in this game in spite of its shortcomings. Overall, we would generally recommend that players seek out other games with a similar theme that have better features and graphics if they are certain they want to play a slot with a pirate concept.
