Easy to Understand (10)
Buccaneer’s Bounty is very easy to understand. The bonus game on the second screen provides prompts to help new players.
Graphics & Sounds (10)
The graphics are clear and sharp and the animation is excellent. In most slot games the sound is the weakest link but not so in Buccaneer’s Bounty.
Theme and Concept (10)
Pirate themes are popular in any event. But when a pirate themed slot is crafted with such finesse playing the slot becomes the primary objective and winning takes second place. Some instances of details provided in the bonus game on the second screen are the recoiling of the cannons and the splashing of the water when the cannonballs fall into the sea. The sub theme of gaining control over the island adds interest to the game. This is illustrated through a duel between the pirate captain and the sailor, though the duel is of no consequence as far as payouts are concerned.
Game Features (9)
Buccaneer’s Bounty has both a bonus game on the second screen and a free spins bonus round, which is the desired situation. It would have been perfect had the scatter symbols really been scatter symbols. By requiring the scatter symbols to align from left to right it has made it a bit more difficult to trigger the free spins round and to collect scatter payouts. Another minor drawback is that the wild symbol does not multiply payouts.
Betting Options (10)
The coin size option in Buccaneer’s Bounty are unbelievable. In this respect it is a slot game that will please everyone. The maximum bet per spin is a whopping 800.00. The maximum line jackpot payout is 240,000.00 and the maximum scatter payout is 80,000.00.
The absence of a progressive jackpot will always be a drawback. A 6000 coin highest fixed jackpot does compensate somewhat. But the other fixed jackpots are disappointing.
