Fortune Games® Slots Review of Buckaneers Frenzy Slot Game
Review of Buckaneers Frenzy
Reel Time Gaming, a Blueprint partner studio, constantly recycles its iconic Fishin' Frenzy slot, popular for its clever free spins feature that created a real furor when it was first released back in 2014. There is no doubt that Buckaneers Frenzy slot is yet another title that adds to the range of titles similar to the Buckaneers One slot currently available on the market, as it hasn't lost its relevance and has spawned numerous makeovers that are based on the same game mechanics.
The Buckaneers Frenzy - The Slot Outlook
Buckaneers Frenzy offers little new in terms of gameplay and design. It is actually a slightly modified version of Reel Time Gaming's Pirates Frenzy slot. Unlike the former game, this game has a feature that allows the player to unlock the sixth reel in order to increase their chances of winning, which is why it is applicable in fewer jurisdictions. Anyway, we find ourselves once again in the same pirate atmosphere, only this time the reels are set against the backdrop of a sandy beach. It would appear that the developers have chosen to stick with a kind of old-school graphics style for some reason. As if it were a nod back to the past and a tie with its older brother, it's a nod to the past, but it still makes the slot look dated rather than stylish.
Featured prominently on the screen is a 5x3 grid producing 10 win lines, and players can set the amount they wish to wager between £0.1 and £10 per spin. In terms of the Return to Player (RTP), the game has a solid 95.49%, which is well below the value found in Pirates Frenzy, however, it has also been reduced to a medium level of volatility. It is important to note that the maximum potential is capped at £250,000, or 50,00x the stake, whichever comes first.
When we look at the paytable for the game, we will see that there are a bunch of recognizable symbols that are categorized into two different categories. It includes classic A-10 royals in the lower section, while the premium lot is made up of coin sacks, rum bottles, oranges, anchors, and parrots in the upper section. The symbols pay out when they are three-of-a-kind or more, except for the parrot which requires only two of them to pay out. Wins of five-of-a-kind for low-value symbols are worth 10x your bet, while wins of 10x to 200x for high-value symbols are worth between 20x and 200x.
There are a lot of bonus features in Buckaneers Frenzy
There is a significant amount of emphasis placed on the Free Spins feature in Buckaneers Frenzy. This feature comes with additional rewards in the form of cash symbols. In order to trigger it, players need to land at least 3 ship Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels to trigger it. Three, four, or five Scatter symbols will award the player with 10, 15, or 20 free games, respectively.
During the Free Spins Bonus, you will find coins sack symbols that are attached to random cash values. These cash values may be up to 2x, 5x, 10x, 15x, 20x, 25x, or 50x the stake, based on the winning combination. When these symbols appear along with a pirate Wild symbol in view, their values are collected and added to the total win counter whenever they land in view. Moreover, each time a pirate Wild appears, the cash values are upgraded to the next level for the remainder of the feature, plus you get +1 additional spin if it appears when it appears, there is no limit to how many spins you can get.
