Play Pirates Plenty Megaways™ At These Slot Sites
About This Slot
Red Tiger’s Pirates Plenty series, including Sunken Treasure and Battle for Gold, is popular enough and using the Megaways™ engine for the next sequel makes perfect sense. Back on board the ships deck you’ll be reminded a little of Blueprint Gaming’s Pirates Bounty Megaways™ or Pirate Kingdom Megaways™ done by Iron Dog Studios as well. The swirling staircases that frame the reel set, the super soundtrack, and the dark imagery on the reels themselves certainly give the game an edgy feel that reflects its high risk maths model. And make no mistake, this game is highly volatile – it will plunder your wallet in no time if you’re not careful, so tread with care.
Bets start at 10p per spin and the wins stack up by landing identical symbols on the six reels across any of the variable paylines. Try this game from April 2021 at al the best UK slot sites.
RTP, Variance and Top Payout
Like all good Megaways™ games, Red Tiger have cranked up the variance on Pirates Plenty to the very max. So be ready for some torrid times before hitting any big win sequences. Of course, the flip side to this is that when the wins trigger the impact can be seismic – look out for crazy combos of free spins and cascading wins to get close to the 10,000x top payout. Find out more in our guide to slots variance.
The RTP is set at a pretty sensible 96% which puts Pirates Plenty Megaways™ in the mid range of video slots right now.
Symbols and Graphics
Low value icons on the reels here are represented by the playing card suits imprinted onto silver coins with payouts of 0.4x, 0.5x, 0.6x and 0.7x the bet if 6 form a win. Meanwhile, the premium icons issue from 0.8x to 3.5x your wager for 6 of a kind and are depicted with a Rum Bottle, Pistols, a Cannon, Captain’s Hat and a Skull.
There are two wilds in the game: the Monkey and Lady Anne, both bringing their own valuable contributions which we explain below, as well as stepping in to substitute for other symbols to form win lines when required.

Gameplay and Features
Besides the 200,704 ways to win available when all the rows are in view on the reels, Pirates Plenty Megaways™ also offers a good set of features to help boost wins, including the classic Cascading Reels, the two Wilds, and a free spins round that can trigger a progressive multiplier win sequence with re-triggers. Here is how it works:
Fans of all Megaways™ slots and NetEnt’s classic Gonzo’s Quest will know how the Cascading Wins features works – just wait for winlines to form and watch all the winning symbols drop off the reels and new ones come in to replace them. New winlines form and the process continues until no more wins are triggered. This gets even more interesting in the bonus round where a progressive multiplier is attached to the feature.
The Monkey Wild symbol not only replaces other icons in completing win combinations, but can, when randomly appearing, remove all low-value symbols and become Sticky on the reels, enhancing your win chances!
Above reels 2 to 5 there is a map with a boat depicted on it – every time you land a map symbol you will move the boat one space along the map. When you reach the other side, the Wild Ways feature is unlocked and one more row appears above the middle four reels. This can produce up to 200, 704 win-ways when all six reels have maximum rows.
Lady Ann Wild
When the Wild Ways feature is unlocked, Lady Ann symbols can appear on that 1×4 reel set at the top. When she does the wilds expand to full reel height and come with a 3x to 8x multiplier. And .. if Lady Ann does not lead to a win she remains in place until she does.
Free Spins Feature
Scatter is represented with the Free Spins symbol which activates the Free Spins Round when 3 or more are present anywhere on the grid. 3 Scatters grant 9 freebies, while each extra adds 3 more spins. Mega prizes arrive owing to a growing Multiplier that this Bonus features. The greatest potential of Free Spins lies within the fact that they can be re-triggered for an unlimited number of times.
Pirates Plenty Megaways™ will feel familiar to many slots players – if you have played the others in the series, or indeed a lot of Megaways™ games, then you will be at home in this set up. What is nice about it is that as well as keeping the best parts of the design and gameplay, Red Tiger have also added some bespoke features that work well with the narrative of the game. The Wild Ways map and boat set up is fun and the Lady Ann that comes into play when the 1×4 reel is in play can add potential, particularly in the bonus round. So all good stuff – just remember that this game is operating at a very high variance – so don’t expect an easy ride! So, good luck and play responsibly!
