Coming soon to some of our top-rated UK casino sites is the new Adventures of Doubloon online slot machine. This new Pirate-themed slot was developed by Triple Edge Studios, and it’s brought you by Microgaming. It will be released simultaneously on desktop and mobile, and it’s officially set to arrive in casinos on Tuesday, February 23rd, 2021.
The game has 5 reels and 20 fixed paylines, and it’s playable from as little as £0.10 per spin up to a maximum of £75 per spin. It comes with the HyperHold feature (a streak respins feature) and Free Spins Bonus, and the most important symbols to keep an eye out for are the HyperHold Symbols, the Skull Symbols, the Wild Symbols and the Scatter Symbols.
The Scatter Symbol is the Treasure Chest, and the Wild Symbol is the Female Pirate Character Symbol, and they can both land in any position across any of the 5 reels. The Free Spins Bonus will instantly trigger when 3 or more Scatter Symbols land anywhere in view on the same spin, and the HyperHold feature will trigger when 6 or more of the Gold Coin and/or Skull Symbols land on the same spin. Just 3 Scatter Symbols showing up on the same spin gets you a minimum guaranteed bonus of 10 Free Spins, but 4 landing gets you 15 Free Spins, and 5 landing gets you 20 Free Spins.
The Free Spins Bonus is played out on a slightly different set of reels. You’ll notice that the low-valued symbols have been removed from the reels, which means that only high paying symbols can land throughout the bonus, allowing for even bigger winnings combos to form. Additional Free Spins can also be retriggered.
When the HyperHold feature triggers, any HyperHold symbols that triggered the feature will immediately lock in place, and you’ll receive 3 guaranteed respins. The aim is to try and land as many of these symbols as possible before the feature ends. During the feature, only Blank Symbols and HyperHold Symbols can land, and each time the HyperHold Symbols land, they will also lock in place and reset to the respin counter to 3. The feature will only end when you have filled all symbols with HyperHold Symbols or when the respin counter reaches zero.
Each Gold Coin HyperHold Symbol that lands has a special cash value attached, and each symbol can be worth anywhere from 1X up to 50X times your total stake. If you manage to land a Skull Symbol during the feature, one of the jackpots will be awarded, and if you fill the entire grid with Skulls and Gold Coins, then you’ll be awarded the Mega Jackpot (the biggest jackpot), which is worth a cool 2,000X times your total stake. In comparison, the Major Jackpot is worth 500X, the Minor Jackpot is worth 100X, and the Mini Jackpot is worth 25X.
You can also increase the values of the jackpots that are up for grabs during the HyperHold feature by playing with the Win Booster betting option ENABLED during normal play. However, this will set you back an extra 1.5X times your total stake per spin. Playing with the Win Booster betting option enable means that the Mini Jackpot is now worth 33.33X, the Minor Jackpot is worth 133.33X, and the Major Jackpot is worth 666.66X, and the Mega Jackpot is worth 3,333.33X.
