Skulls of LegendPlay free game
Pirates have been the subject of a ton of different movies, books, television shows and the like. Skulls of Legend is a pirate-based slot by iSoftBet that uses a gritty, more realistic depiction of pirates than you normally get. It is completely feature-packed, and the gameplay is based on a somewhat medium-to-high level of volatility. Along these lines, players should be prepared to drop down to bet sizes that are a bit smaller than they are used to in order to smooth out the swings. This can also be accomplished while playing longer sessions than average.
With five reels, three rows and 30 paylines, this video slot has a layout that players will feel right at home with. Coins range from $0.01 to $0.20 each, and that means you can bet from $0.30 to $6 per spin. High rollers won't have many available bet sizes that make sense for them, but everyone else will be covered. It's interesting that they decided to limit the upper end of the betting scale here, but this company isn't known for targeting high rollers very much at all. As we mentioned above, the volatility is fairly high in this game as well.
Wild Symbols and Wild Reels
The skull is the wild symbol in this game, and it shows up on every reel. It doesn't count for the scatters, and it doesn't have its own payouts, so five of a kind will count as the highest-paying regular win for five of a kind. What is special about this symbol is that it increases a counter at the bottom of each reel whenever one appears. Once that counter gets to four, you will get an entire reel full of wilds on that specific reel for four real money spins, which is obviously great for hitting more winning combinations. This is a cool and atypical way of handling wild features that we can't remember having seen often in the past.
Scatters and Free Spins
The ship is the choice iSoftBet made for the scatter symbol in Skulls of Legend, and you get paid for two of a kind or more anywhere on the reels. Five of a kind pays a solid 2,250x win, and you can also get three or more to trigger one of four different free spins features.
The Rhum Barrel free spins gives you seven free turns with 2-5 random wilds, and all of the wilds are sticky for three spins. The Compass free spins pays 10 free turns with extra wilds. The Storm free spins feature gives players 14 free spins, and losing spins during this feature see the symbols switch around to give players a minimum of one winning combo. Finally, players can get the No Quarter free spins with 15 free turns with up to five random wilds on each spin.
The top non-scatter pay is for five of a kind in the pirate holding a hand that's full of gold coins, and that pays 1,500x. You can also earn 625 for five of the female pirate or 500x for five of the cannon. The sword and pistol combination pays 400x for five of a kind, and five on an activated payline of the parrot pays out 300x.
The bottom five symbols are A, K, Q, J and 10 rank symbols that are displayed in a style that really fits with the overall pirate theme. Five of the red A symbol pays a very solid 150x win, and either of the green K or purple Q symbols pay 100x each for five of a kind. Earning five of the yellow J is good for a 75x payday, and five of the blue 10x wins a 60x prize.
The gritty feel of Skulls of Legend is a welcome departure from the cartoony style of animation that we typically see from games that use the pirate theme. We can understand them not wanting to come across as taking themselves quite too seriously, but pirates were a pretty serious group, so treating them with a balance of seriousness and fun is a good way to go. Overall, this is a good game with several different bonus features, and the wild reels feature gives it a lot of long-term replay value. We recommend this game for players who like action-packed titles with chances for big wins.
