In the world of online slots, there’s no shortage of pirate-themed games. It’s becoming a popular theme, especially since the Pirates of the Caribbean movies exploded onto the scene. The Skull Duggery slot is a pirate-themed game by Microgaming. We have to admit that we were pleasantly surprised at the amount of colour included in the game. It’s one of the brighter incarnations of pirate slot games that we’ve encountered. The slot is made up of five reels, with a total of nine pay lines. You’ll be able to choose how many of these nine pay lines that you activate during each spin. To do so, all you need to do is bet on it.
The symbols in Skull Duggery slot game are vivid and attention-grabbing; a far cry from what we usually see in pirate slots. There are no playing card stand-ins, every symbol is either pirate themed or fruit. The fruits such as the coconuts, bananas, oranges, grapes and mangoes are the less valuable symbols. If a symbol looks more ‘pirate’ related, then there’s a good chance that it’s valuable. Examples include the map, the ale tanker and the red-bearded pirate. As he’s captain of the ship, it’s only right that the pirate is the most lucrative regular symbol. Landing five pirates will multiply your original line bet by 750.
As the slot is one of Microgaming’s older games, you’ll find the betting sequence very simple to use. All you need to do is use the ‘+’ and ‘-’ icons to toggle the number of lines. Then select the number of coins. Under the ‘Bet’ column, you’ll see the total bet. When you’re happy with this amount, you’re ready to spin.
There are three significant symbols in Skull Duggery slot; the wild, the scatter and the bonus symbol. The wild symbol is the game’s logo. Its primary function is to substitute for all of the fruit symbols, where it can then be used to complete a winning combo. This combination will also benefit from a x3 multiplier.
The scatter is the green skull. The skull pays out whenever two or more land on any position on the reels. The bonus symbol is the thief. He’s cloaked in darkness, creeping off with the treasure chest.
Land three of the bonus symbols in the Skull Duggery slot game to active the bonus round. In a slightly cruel (yet funny) twist, you’ll be asked to choose a shipmate to throw off the ship. It functions like a standard ‘pick me’ game. You’ll be shown, five shipmates. Choose the one that has to go. Once he’s not so safely overboard, you’ll receive a prize.
