Pirates Smugglers Paradise
Pirate Smugglers Paradise is a low variance cluster pays slot game with 12 symbols that link up into clusters of 6 to 25 symbols. This impressive game will take you on a journey through 3 free spins modes with high seas, win falls, and multiplier madness along with cascading reels.
Theme and Story Line
This is an entertaining pirate story with hook clawed crabs, a band of merry pirates, pistols, and swords played out near a paradise island somewhere in the Caribbean Sea. The reels are the sails of a ship that comes with a single cannon and a box of cannonballs.
Graphics, Sounds, and Animations
Yggdrasil has gone all out with 3D graphics and bustling animations on a colourfully designed slot interface. The backdrop sets the scene with moving palm trees and vegetation as well as butterflies flying behind the reels while a crab sits on the slot’s pirate ship bobbling around and encouraging you to spin the reels. With all that going on before even spinning the reels, Yggdrasil has made it obvious that this slot is going to be full of 3D animations.
Linking up cluster wins and dropdown wins, which are effectively cascading reels, will trigger more moving graphics while you can expect yet more animated effects when one of the slot’s many features are triggered. Of course, with such quality in design, you can also expect a crystal-clear pirate-themed soundtrack and some bubbly sound effects with lots of clicking and clunking.
Top Casinos to Play the Game:
The Pirate Smugglers Paradise online slot game comes with 5x5 reels and cluster wins. You will need to link up a minimum of 6 symbols in adjacent positions to trigger a payout while the reels can be filled with up to 25 alike symbols giving you clusters of 25!
Clusters can be made using any of the 12 regular symbols. These are the female pirate, a pirate wearing a purple hat, a young fresh-faced pirate wearing a green headscarf, a parrot, musket, sword, bottle of rum, pirate’s hook, hearts, clubs, diamonds, and spades.
When you land a cluster win the ‘Dropdown Wins’ feature is triggered. All symbols that are not part of the winning cluster combination explode. The symbols that formed the cluster win will drop to the bottom of the reels giving you vertical lines of symbols. Next, new symbols will drop in from above filling the spare spaces on the reels. If an alike symbol lands in one of those spaces and extends the value of the original winning cluster, you get paid for the new larger cluster win and the entire ‘Dropdown Wins’ process repeats itself.
Bonuses and Free Spins
Multiplier: Every time a row is filled with symbols to create a cluster win, a multiplier is applied to the next ‘dropdown’ wins feature. 2, 3, 4, or 5 rows filled with symbols awards x2, x3, x5, or x10 multipliers to each ‘dropdown’ result.
Free Spins: Get 3 free spin symbols to trigger 7 free spins.
- High Seas – All hearts, clubs, diamonds, and spades are taken off the reels leaving only high paying symbols.
- Multiplier Madness – All multipliers won by filling up rows with symbols are added to the top of the reels. The multipliers then accumulate so each new dropdown will have larger multipliers applied compared to the standard multiplier feature.
- Win Fall – 2 additional winning symbols are added to the reels at the beginning of every dropdown. All you need is 1 more symbol to increase the value of the cluster to trigger another win and another dropdown. The next dropdown will add 2 further symbols. Therefore, this feature helps you reach a 25-symbol cluster win at a faster rate than normal.
Bet sizes, RTP and Variance
The Pirates Smugglers Paradise video slot makes betting and payouts reasonably easy. Adjust the ‘coin value’ to between 0.01 and 5.00. As each spin has a fixed 20 coins, this gives you a min-max bet of 0.20-100.00. You can simply press ‘Max Bet’ to spin at 100.00. Yggdrasil has rated this slot’s volatility at 37/100 making it a low variance slot game which stands to reason because of the high regularity cluster win payouts are awarded, yet the RTP is surprisingly a lot less than you would think at 96.3%.
Pirates Smugglers Paradise is a low variance slot game for good reason. Most cluster pay slots that use cascading reels, which is named ‘Dropdown Wins’ on this video slot, usually eliminate the symbols that were used to create the winning cluster. However, Pirates Smugglers Paradise does the opposite. This style of gameplay guarantees that you will be showered with regular wins from a single spin. That said, the payouts for cluster wins are much less than most other cluster pay slots – most likely because Yggdrasil has had to balance the high number of cluster wins awarded during the gameplay by lowering the payout amount for each cluster combination in order to maintain the slot’s RTP.
