Premium paying symbols comprise of a ships wheel, treasure chest, deckhand, female pirate, and the main pirate, with a 6 of kind win paying 4x, 4x, 10x, 15, and 50x respectively.
You can get into the action on Pirate Kingdom Megaways™ for just €0.20 a spin, whilst the maximum bet on the slot comes in at €20 a play. In total there are 7 bet sizes that range from €2 down to the minimum stake, so this means that the size of your bankroll won't be an issue if you wanted to try this game out on a budget.
PIRATE KINGDOM MEGAWAYS™ CASCADING REELS
WINNING SYMBOLS WILL BE REMOVED AND REPLACED WITH NEW ONES ON PIRATE KINGDOM MEGAWAYS™
NEW SYMBOLS WILL CASCADE DOWN TO FILL THE REELS AFTER A WIN ON PIRATE KINGDOM MEGAWAYS™
Pirate Kingdom Megaways™ is Iron Dog Studio's first Megaways™ Slot outing, and to follow the trend set from other software providers in their first attempt at this gaming mechanic, they too have decided to add the cascading reels feature to this game.
Most are now familiar with how this exciting feature works having seen it in action in previous slots such as Extra Chilli Megaways™. Each time a winning combination is made on the reels the symbols that help to make up that win will be removed, and new symbols will cascade down to replace them. This can be particularly effective if you have a spin at the full Megaways amount, hitting a string of consecutive cascades can lead to a good set up of premium symbols, and potentially a huge base game win.
We previously encountered on Deal or no Deal Megaways™ the use of the cascading reels to trigger the free spin bonus, and this has also been used in Pirate Kingdom Megaways™ which we will now learn more about.
PIRATE KINGDOM MEGAWAYS™ FREE SPIN FEATURE
4 OR MORE CONSECUTIVE REEL CASCADES WILL TRIGGER THE FREE SPIN FEATURE ON PIRATES KINGDOM MEGAWAYS™
REELS CONTAINING 7 SYMBOLS WILL BE LOCKED AT THAT AMOUNT FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE FREE SPINS ON PIRATE KINGDOM MEGAWAYS™
To trigger the free spin feature on Pirate Kingdom Megaways™ you will need to hit 4 or more consecutive wins via the cascading reels. To the right hand side of the reels you will see 4 anchor symbols, and these represent the 4 reel cascades that you need to achieve to unlock the bonus round and be awarded with 8 free spins. Players should note that for each additional successful reel cascade after the 4th, they will be awarded a further 2 extra spins for the bonus round, with this being capped at a maximum of 14 spins.
EACH SUCCESSFUL REEL CASCADE WILL INCREASE YOUR MULTIPLIER BY X1 ON PIRATE KINGDOM MEGAWAYS™
MULTIPLIER INCREASING AFTER A WIN ON PIRATE KINGDOM MEGAWAYS™
Once the free spin bonus is under way you are hoping to achieve as many winning cascades as possible, this is something that we have become accustomed to in previous Megaways™ slots like Diamond Mine Megaways™. For each winning cascade that you accomplish your bonus round multiplier will increase by x1 in value.
There is however more to this bonus round than meets the eye, and Iron Dog Studios have added a nice little feature to spice the free spins up a little. Each time that a reel lands holding the maximum amount of symbols possible, which is 7, a skull and bones will come down and lock that reel into place so that it will land 7 symbols for the entirety of your bonus. Furthermore each time this happens it will also add an extra x1 to your bonus multiplier. Players should note that if a locked reel lands on the last free spin, then it will also award you 1 additional free spin.
The free spins can be re-triggered, and to do this you will again need to hit 4 consecutive reel cascades and fill the anchor symbols to the right of the reels. Every time the anchors are filled successfully you will be awarded an additional 2 extra spins.

PIRATE KINGDOM MEGAWAYS™ SLOT REVIEW FINAL THOUGHTS
For a first attempt at a Megaways™ slot it has to be said that this is an impressive attempt from Iron dog Studios. Whilst there are many features that we have seen on previous slots in this niche, the addition of a locking reel during the bonus is something new, and it offers up some huge potential for hitting a big win.
We have thoroughly enjoyed playing this game and Iron Dog Stuidos have hit the Megaways™ market with a bang, we can't wait to see what their further releases have to offer.
