    Pirate Pays Megaways Slot - How to Play

    Betting in this game uses the Megaways mechanic, which features up to 117,649 ways to win.

    Main Game

    This is a six-reel slot game.

    Between two and seven symbols can land per reel.

    An extra horizontal reel is placed beneath the regular reels - on every spin, it will will add another symbol to reels one, two, three, four or five.

    The below features may trigger during your game:

    • Scatter symbols
    • Mega Scatter symbols
    • Wild symbols
    • Free Spins

    More information one each is available below.

    Reaction Mechanic

    This feature causes all winning symbols to disappear from the reels. 

    Those left will drop to the bottom of the screen, before new symbols fall from above to replace them.

    The consequential reactions can help you achieve several consecutive wins.

    Reactions stop when no new wins appear. 

    Wild Symbols

    The two Wild symbols featured in this game are regular Wilds and Compass Wilds.

    The latter can land on the extra reel only.

    Compass Wilds act like an actual compass - whenever one lands, it will spin to reveal a direction (north, east, south or west).

    Every symbol in the line of that direction will transform into a Wild.

    Scatter Symbols

    There are also two types of Scatters in Pirate Pays Megaways: normal Scatters and Mega Scatter.

    Regular Scatters can appear on reels one to five in the base game only; Mega Scatters can only appear on reel six during the base game.

    Land at least three Scatters to activate the Kraken Bonus; an enhanced version will play out if triggered with two normal Scatters and a Mega Scatter. 

    Kraken Bonus

    The Kraken Bonus plays out before Free Spins (below).

    20 outcomes will appear, each containing a hidden number of free spins and a multiplier value - the amounts vary depending on which version of the bonus you are playing:

    • Normal Kraken Bonus - between six and 25 free spins and a multiplier of between 1x and 10x
    • Enhanced Bonus - the 10 lowest outcomes will be removed, meaning you could win between seven and 25 free spins and a multiplier of between 3x and 10x

    Fire cannons will then be shot at the outcomes, removing them one-by-one. 

    The Kraken will make you an offer at various points throughout the bonus. 

    You can accept the offer of free spins and starting multiplier value; or you can reject it. 

    Rejecting the offer means you will carry on playing, with more outcomes removed until the Kraken makes you another offer. This repeats until you accept the offer or just two outcomes remain.

    If you get to the end without making an offer, you will be awarded one of the two remaining outcomes at random. 

    Free Spins will trigger at the end of the bonus.

    Free Spins

    The Kraken Bonus (above) will determine how many spins you start the round with, as well as the multiplier value.

    During Free Spins, the multiplier will increase with every reaction.

    The following rules apply to Free Spins:

    • Normal Scatters can land on the extra reel only
    • Mega Scatters cannot land
    • Three or more normal Scatters appearing will re-trigger Free Spins

    Each time Free Spins re-triggers, you will be awarded even more spins, as per below:

    • Three scatters = five extra free spins
    • Four scatters = 10 extra free spins
