BountyPop Slot (Yggdrasil)
Yggdrasil's YGS Master’s program has a new 2020 release, and this is none other than the BountyPop, an AvatarUX title that is inspired by the PopWins series.
BountyPop has a lot in store, and from the big payouts to the impressive features, this is a great slot to try:
BountyPop offers 486 ways to win on its 5x3 design. It will pay both ways, and with the help of some of its features, this will deliver great payouts.
Among the symbols that Yggdrasil has considered is the Mystery Wheel, free spins, expanding reels, as well as multipliers (up to 100x).
Betting and Prizes
The betting range is quite limited, and it is unlike any that I have seen on Yggdrasil’s titles. To place a wager, you will need at least $0.20 per spin, and the maximum that you can use is $20 per spin.
The volatility is quite high, but I love the potential that BountyPop has, whereby, top payouts can get to as high as 55,000x the stake.
RTP is fair, and at 96%, it serves this level of volatility just fine.
BountyPop Slot Features
PopWins is a concept that the developer has used on several of their titles. This mechanism enables the winning symbols to pop, and expand because it is able to add extra symbols to the reel in question.
With the new symbols, a minimum of 3 reels will bring extra ways to win. During the regular spins, you will be able to expand the game area to 7,776 ways to win. However, with features like the free spin, this will get to as many as 59,049 ways.
With 3 to 5 scatters landing on the reels in a single round, BountyPop will reward you with 6 to 12 free games.
Mystery Wheel is another impressive feature here, and depending on the symbols that you get during the free rounds (7, 8 or 9 symbols), the wheel will appear in 3 variants. These are:
Bronze Wheel: offers up to 10x multipliers.
Silver Wheel: the outer reel offers 7x multiplier, while the inner one 10x.
Gold Wheel: outer wheel offers 10x, and 100x for the inner wheel.
Theme & Design
The pirates on this slot are armed mostly with bombs and swords, and they are quite similar to the those found on other slots.
I love the effort that Yggdrasil puts in the design quality of their slots, and BountyPop is no exception.
For the symbols, we have Royals, plus the main characters that appear as different pirates armed with weapons.
BountyPop is a great addition to the ever-growing portfolio of Yggdrasil slots. The title offers great potential and I enjoyed the bright design and simple layout that immediately sets you in the gaming mood.
The PopWins mechanic is slowing making its mark in this industry, and considering the success that Yggdrasil has had with it, it’s just a matter of time before other developers borrow a leaf.
BountyPop is a suitable game to all levels of players, provided you can tackle its high volatility.
