Big Time Gaming has a ‘kraken’ time claiming SlotBeats’ SOTW award

Avast ye! It’s time to set sail as Big Time Gaming claims SlotBeats’ SOTW award with its swashbuckling title, Pirate Pays Megaways.

Big Time Gaming takes to the seven seas in its latest swashbuckling igaming entrant, which has seen Pirate Pays Megaways welcome SlotBeats’ Slot of the Week award onboard.

The 6×6+1 video slot features up to 117,649 ways to win and is packed with giant sea monsters, stacked wilds, mega-triggers and interactive bonus rounds.

“Pirate Pays Megaways is all about swashbuckling pirates, legendary sea monsters and a bounty of features, stacked wilds, mega-triggers and interactive bonus rounds,” commented Nik Robinson, CEO of Big Time Gaming.

“The game being crowned Slot of the Week is testament to all the hard work and passion our Big Time Gaming team puts into every single game we release.”

The game, powered by BTG’s Megaways mechanic, features a horizontal secondary reel which can be found below the regular reels. With each spin, this secondary reel delivers one extra symbol to reels two, three, four and five.

Moreover, there are two scatters in the base game – a regular gold chest scatter on reels one to five, and a purple chest mega scatter on reel six. Landing three or more scatters triggers the Kraken bonus round, and if one or more of the triggering scatters is a mega, then a mega feature offer is also triggered. 

Furthermore, there’s a range of 20 prize free spins and multipliers shown on the screen in the Kraken bonus round. Here, players can choose to accept or reject the Kraken’s offer of one of these prizes. 

The majestic Kraken will make another offer should the player rebuff the monster, destroying up to five of the remaining prizes. This will continue until an offer is either accepted or only two prizes remain, at which point the player can choose to open one of two mystery chests to reveal their final prize.

Meanwhile, to trigger the Enhanced bonus round, the player must land a special purple scatter symbol matched with two greens. This feature is the same as above except the lowest 10 prizes are removed.

Free spins will commence after the feature offer, beginning with a multiplier of between one and 10, increasing after every reaction. 

Finally, a basic wild can be placed in the secondary reel or the main reels by the compass wild. Whenever this appears (in an initial spin or a reaction), it will indicate a direction: either South, East, North or West. Symbols in the direction the compass indicates will turn into basic wilds. 

“Pirate Pays Megaways is jam-packed with the arresting graphics, sound and gameplay, and all the innovative mechanics and bonus games that we’ve come to expect from BTG,” added Pierluigi Rinaldi, head of exclusive content at Kindred Group.

“We look forward to treating our players with exclusive early access to what may become a truly classic game.”

The title comes with an RTP of 96.253 per cent with a high volatility level implemented within the gameplay. Readers who would like to experience a demo version of Pirate Pays Megaways can click here to be redirected to the supplier’s official website.
