The leading developer of online casino content Microgaming has announced the launch of the latest addition to their lineup of high-quality slot games.

Developed exclusively for Microgaming by their partners at Foxium, the new game invites players on an adventure of epic proportions, as they embark on a quest to uncover hidden pirate treasures.

An Epic Adventure on the Horizon

Titled Boom Pirates, the fresh release boasts stunning visuals and top-notch animations, and centres on Captain Mary and her gang of fearless pirates. The immersive gaming experience offered by this game is further enhanced thanks to a number of exciting and potentially lucrative features, including the new Wonderways and Foxify.

The Wonderways game mechanics has the power to change the layout of the grid, turning the five-reel four-row screen into 9×6, which in turn offers a staggering 10 million ways to win – meaning there are no traditional paylines on offer.

Using the Foxify feature, players significantly boost their chances of activating the slot’s three treasured features. Increasing the starting bet by 50% awards additional gunpowder to cannons, which can help punters to create a grid explosion.

Thrilling Features

Captain Mary appears throughout the game, randomly turning now-winning spins into winning combos!

The Yo-Ho-Ho Scatter symbol appears only on reels 1, 3, and 5, and whenever they manage to land there at the same time, they will trigger the game’s Free Spins round. This will take players on a treasure hunt. Watch out for the Boom Pirates cannon firing, as this can leave activated Wonderways open for the duration of this feature, which has the potential for fantastic prizes. Landing additional 3 Scatter will add more spin to the count.

Players can also buy free spins whenever they feel like during the game – for the price of 100 times their initial bet.

Ready to set sail? Your band of pirates is waiting for you at any Microgaming casino.

James Buchanan Director of Global Operations at Microgaming said Boom Pirates was full to the brim with thrilling features, new mechanics and a soundtrack of sea shanties not to be missed. He explained that Captain Mary took players on an exciting adventure as they navigated the game’s cannon fire, swashbuckling pirates and quests for treasure, while the Boom Pirates feature expanded the reels to an astounding nine-by-six grid with over ten million ways to win, offering players the potential for substantial rewards.
