Stuart McCarthy, Yggdrasil’s head of product & programs was similarly delighted about the partnership with Peter & Sons that resulted in the release of the new pirate-themed slot game. “It’s another winning title that we truly believe will succeed thanks to its excellent features and mechanics, especially the DoubleMax GEM,” he said.

Lucky players of the new pirate-themed slot game can tap into huge prizes of up to 20,000x of their bet. Landing three scatter symbols awards the players seven free spins. During that round, every two additional scatters help bring two more free spins. According to Yggdrasil, there’s also an “opportunity for Multiplier Jumps to activate randomly at any time, seeing the game’s win multiplier jump up one position and increasing the size of wins.”

Additionally, players can buy their way into the bonus action by paying an x0.25 on their bet for a double chance of hitting free spins. On the other hand, they can also pay x100 to directly tap into the free spins bonus round that offers seven free spins.
