Graphics and Visuals
A completely frameless game window floats on top of the ocean with the pay symbols plunging into the sea after a spin. The background is a revolving globe with a number of islands passing the reels intermittently. The pirate theme extends to the pay symbols and the soundtrack, which is played on a flute and accordion and is interrupted only by cries of a pirate, scatter thumps as well as feature trigger and win count noises.
At the low end, you will find wooden, bronze, silver and gold coins with a bone cross, paying 2x your bet for a single five of a kind. They are followed by beer mugs, treasure chests, ghost pirates and octopuses. Pays for a five of a kind range from 6x to 14x the bet. The top symbol is the Jolly Rhonda Wild, awarding 16x your stake when five line up on a spin. The slot logo is a second wild symbol can appear on reels two to four in the Wild Current and Wilds Spins features only. There are no scatters on this slot as the Wild Spins round is triggered by the Jolly Rhonda Wild.
Release the Kraken Random Feature
The first and most common feature that you might trigger on Wild Plunder is the Release the Kraken. A giant octopus can appear after any spin in the base game to add Jolly Rhonda Wilds to random positions on the reels, increasing the chances to hit a win. The Wild Spins round is triggered when minimum two Jolly Rhonda Wilds are in view after the Kraken disappears.
Wild Currents Random Feature
This is the moment were the revolving islands are coming into play. A loud storm can trigger at the start of any spin in the base game. A cloud will appear from the right and blows the globe into a fast spin. If one of the islands stops above reel three, then three to nine slot logo wilds will be placed on random positions on reels two, three and four. Pays are evaluated and awarded once the reels stop. Don’t expect huge mega wins but they will be good enough to keep the gaming balance steady.
Rhonda’s Respin Feature
The respin feature is randomly triggered when only one Jolly Rhonda Wild lands on a spin. The reel with the Jolly Rhonda Wild symbol will be held in place after any potential wins are paid and the other reels spin one more time for a chance to hit more Jolly Rhonda Wilds and trigger the Wild Spins.
Wild Spins Feature
Two or more Jolly Rhonda Wilds in view on a spin, after a respin or after the random Release the Kraken feature will trigger three to five Wild Spins. Any further landing during the round will add +2 Wild Spins for each occurrence.
The Jolly Rhonda Wilds turn into walking wilds for the duration of the feature. On each respin, they will move to a random position on the reel to the left of their current position. But that’s not all. Once the reel stop, all beer mug, treasure chest, ghost pirate and octopus symbols adjacent to a Jolly Rhonda Wild will turn into a slot logo wild for the current spin. Any Jolly Rhonda Wild reaching the leftmost reel will fall off into the ocean. The feature ends when there are no more Wild Spins left.
Are the reels on Wild Plunder ground for vast treasures? To be honest, we were not that excited when we first saw the slot, mainly because of the low maximum win potential in a single spin. But that changed rather quickly when we tested the game extensively. It is action-packed and fun to play with features happening regularly and the Wild Spins gave us numerous 100+ times our bet wins. Doesn’t sound like much but it can increase a balance steadily as the free spins seem to trigger often enough.
