Wild Pirates

International Game Technology

This pirate-themed game, available on IGT’s CrystalSlant 32 and CrystalDual 27 cabinets, is centered around frequent wild symbols on an expanded reel array.

The base game is a 50-line, low-denomination video slot featuring a 75-credit cost-to-cover. The base reel array, positioned over an underwater scene on the high-definition monitor, is a five-by-five setup—five reels, with five symbol stops per reel.

The main bonus is the frequently occurring Wild Stays Explodes ‘N Pays feature. Each bomb symbol that lands on a reel will stay in place as a sub-symbol. Players continue to collect bomb sub-symbols until a bomb with a lit fuse lands on the reels. After a random number of games, the fuse will ignite the bomb and any adjacent bomb symbols, turning them all wild.

Three bonus symbols trigger a free-spin round. During the free games bonus, players collect bomb sub-symbols until the final spin, when a super bomb will land and detonate all of the bombs for even more wilds.
