8 Golden Skulls of Holly Roger Megaways Slot (Microgaming)Microgaming has used a longer than necessary title on this slot, but it doesn’t mean that it is as boring as its name.

8 Golden Skulls of Holly Roger Megaways was made by Microgaming, in partnership with Buck Stakes Entertainment.

The slot uses a pirate theme with very good features and graphics: something that is appealing for real money players. I had an opportunity to play this title, and below is my unbiased review:

Game Set-Up

8 Golden Skulls of Holly Roger Megaways uses 6 reels, which are common with many Megaways titles. Up to 117,648 Megaways are active on the title.

On its list of features, I found things like the Firepot scatters, Free Spins (with multipliers), Mystery Symbols, and Rolling Wheels.

Betting and Prizes

The betting range is between $0.20 and $20 per spin, and the highest that the slot can pay is 6,000x the stake ($120,000).

With features like multipliers coming into play, 8 Golden Skulls of Holly Roger Megaways can get a huge boost to pay up to 10,000xs the stake.

It is a highly volatile game that offers a fair RTP of 96.86%.

8 Golden Skulls of Holly Roger Features

To form winning combos, you will need 3 to 6 matching symbols. These must also land on successive reels, left to right.

Each reel gets a random number of symbols, which is what determines the number of ways to win. With the maximum of symbols (7) appearing on each reel, you are likely going to get 117,649 Megaways.

The slot uses a Rolling Reels mechanic whose work is to remove the symbols that were involved in a win, and replacing them with new ones.

With 3 to 8 scatters landing on the reels, the slot will reward you with wins of up to 2,000x the stake.

Treasure Chest mystery symbols are also useful when you are trying to form wins. These will be changed to become a single type of regular symbol.

My favourite is the free spins, and these will come to you with the help of the Diamond scatters. The maximum that you can trigger with the free spins is 30 free games. There are 3x multipliers, and it is also possible to retrigger the free spins.

Theme & Design

8 Golden Skulls of Holly Roger Megaways has borrowed from the pirate theme, and this is evident from the symbols used on the reels.

These symbols include up to five female pirates (high value), and some Royals. Other symbols are Treasure Chests, a Diamond, and a Golden Skull.


8 Golden Skulls of Holly Roger Megaways may have a somewhat long name, but the slot offers s lot of nice things.

It has great features, an above-average RTP, and good payout potential. However, given its brutal volatility, I can only recommend it to more experienced gamers.
