Does Bones & Bounty! Slot Overcome Very High Volatility?

When it comes to ghost ships, there is none more well-known than the Flying Dutchman. The story is literally hundreds of years old. As it goes, the ship was lost in a bad storm. To save his crew and himself from damnation, the captain made a deal with the devil, a deal that forced the Dutchman’s crew to sail the seas forever.

Now, Bones & Bounty! slot from Thunderkick certainly doesn’t have hundreds of years of history behind it, but it’s no less spooky.

Halloween is coming

The slot features a monkey ghost wild symbol that substitutes for all other symbols, except the bonus symbol, to complete winning combinations. The animation of the ghost monkey when it is involved in a winning combination is pretty terrifying.

In addition to the standard wild symbol, the slot also features stacked wilds that can be stacked two, three, or even four symbols high. When a stacked wild appears on the reels, it will be locked in place, and it will then trigger a respin.

The Cash Bonus Game is triggered with three or more bonus symbols. Once triggered, you’ll get three spins to add gold coin multiplier symbols to the reels. If you add a gold coin multiplier symbol to the reels, your three spins will be reset. However, if you go three spins without adding one, your round will be over.

In addition to resetting your spins, the appearance of a gold coin multiplier symbol will also shift all symbols on the reels one space to the right. Once a gold coin multiplier reaches the Ghost Reel on the far right of the reels, the multiplier will be multiplied by the Ghost Reel multiplier (say that five times fast) and thrown back onto the reels. There is also a persistent payer symbol that will continue to add its displayed value to all multipliers on the reels.

If you’re not keen on waiting around for a close encounter with a pirate ghost, you can select to purchase a round of the slot’s bonus feature. The “Buy Feature” button is in an unusual location, right next to the spin button (on the desktop version, at least).

Is Bones & Bounty slot perfect for Halloween gaming?

I’ll be honest: I think Bones & Bounty slot is ruined by its very high volatility. The slot is genuinely great otherwise. The graphics are fantastic, the format interesting, and the bonus features are engaging. As someone who enjoys a good pirate-themed slot, this is certainly one of the better ones. However, due to the very high volatility, the gameplay is slow and frustrating when it should be fast and enthralling. I would have taken a significantly smaller max multiplier to speed the gameplay up on this one.

If you’re curious, the slot offers a 25,000x max multiplier, which is great. It means that you can play for up to €250,000 in winnings when betting at just €10 a spin. However, as I have said, I think this slot would have benefited from lower volatility and a lower max multiplier. The slot has an RTP of 96.16%.
