Plunderin’ Pirates: Hold and Win Slot (IsoftBet)
Plunderin’ Pirates: Hold & Win offers a popular version of a story that involves male and female pirates. Alongside, there are the typical pets commonly associated with these aggressive warriors.
Pirate stories are very common as a source of inspiration for slots, and iSoftBet is still determined to make the best out of this theme.
Here is my full review of Plunderin’ Pirates:
The developer has opted for the common 5x3 reels, with only 20 active lines.
For the major features, there are explosive modifiers, wilds, and respins among others.
Betting and Prizes
The slot’s betting system isn’t unusual as this is a common level with many iSoftBet slots. To play for real money, you will be allowed to place wagers of between $0.20 and $20 per spin.
When compared to other slots with medium volatility, we can conclude that Plunderin’ Pirates does not do very well when it comes to payouts.
The slot’s top jackpot can only go up to 880x the fairly low stake. However, there is some fairness with the RTP of 96% that iSoftBet has given it.
Plunderin’ Pirates Slot Features
The slot's wild symbol is standard, nothing out of the ordinary, however, that doesn't mean it's not valuable.
These wilds can be used as substitutes, allowing you to incorporate them into regular symbols to create new combinations. They do not pay any cash directly though.
As you play Plunderin' Pirates, random modifiers may be triggered. This mechanic will involve the captain, who will add various modifiers to the game area. This is how it works:
3 to 5 additional wilds;
An additional 1 to 3 gold coins help trigger the respins;
Royals get an upgrade to a single premium icon.
Plunderin Respin’s real deal though is the Hold & Win style feature. To trigger this feature, you will need at least 5 scattered Gold Coins.
In addition to the regular gold coins, the slot also offers others that serve different roles. They include:
Silver: these unlock the symbol positions and gather the prizes associated with the current gold coins.
Purple: these collect gold and silver coins.
Green: they boost the prizes from closer coins.
Blue: they add between 1and 3 extra rows, enabling you to collect additional coins.
Theme & Design
It’s obvious that the slot borrows from the pirate theme, and regardless of this being a common theme, I appreciate iSoftBet for the effort that they have put into designing the game.
The symbols include Royals, plus several premium ones in the images of monkeys, parrots, pirates, plus the Jolly Roger Wild. The Gold coins serve as scatters which are the feature symbols.
The slot doesn’t perform very badly, but as an avid real money gamer, I’m not very impressed by its low-top jackpot.
However, the RTP is fair enough, with above-average graphics, and it is a slot that is suitable for casual gamers.
