Theme of the Game
Prepare for the biggest overseas adventure that awaits if you are bold enough to board the ghostly pirate ship on its quest for the hidden treasures with the Skulls of Legend.
You are in for one hell of a ride across 5 reels and 30 paylines stacked with guns, swords and unearthly apparitions. One thing is sure, you definitely won’t lack excitement in this slot with pirates running around shooting and bringing you four different rounds of Free Spins and sticky wilds to make your quest on the stormy sea bountiful.
When iSoftBet name comes up we have no doubt that we will see absolutely stunning graphics with special attention to every little detail, from sound effects to symbol animation.
Even though they have not been in the business for long, their approach to developing premium solutions and services focuses on innovation and full user experience, has quickly put them on the map. Apart from slots they also provide table games and their games are available across all devices.
How to Play It
The overseas adventure starts at $0.30, that is, $0.01 for 30 active paylines which are fixed so you can only bet on all lines. There is the option to stop your spin if you are impatient or choose Autospin option which can be set to a maximum of 1000 auto spins.
Whether you are a fan of pirate stories or not, you will not remain indifferent when you see the apparition of a ship sailing towards you or the pirate captain tempting you with a handful of gold. You will come across cannons, swords, guns and even captain’s parrot. Apart from these symbols we see typical playing cards symbols that fill up the grids.
If you prove to be a worthy mate, the Captain will reward you with 1,500 coins which is the most that any base game symbol will pay.
Beware of the sailing pirate ship because it can make this game a real conquest. Besides being the most valuable symbol paying 2,250 coins, it also triggers the Free Spins Round if you find three or more on the reels regardless of their position.
The menacing crystal blue skull acts as game’s Wild and while it does not make winning combinations it can replace any symbol (except for Scatter) in the game and also holds one special feature.
T&C Apply 18+
You know that your bounty is getting closer when you see three Scatters anywhere on the reels. The Pirate ships will pay generously for five of a kind, but also activate the Free Spins Bonus game which comes in four different variations.
Rhum Barrel grants 7 free spins and adds up to 5 sticky wilds that stay locked for next three spins. Then there is Compass which lands on the third reel granting you ten free spins and expanding wilds in the direction shown by the compass.
Another possible variation is to get the Storm, that is, 14 free spins and at least one winning combination on any losing spin.
The last but not the least is the No Quarter round which brings 15 free spins and the pirate shooting up to 5 symbols and turning them into Wilds. You are not able to choose the Free Spins round, because it is chosen for you randomly.
There is also the option to accumulate Wild symbols on the reels throughout the game. Actually, you will find a meter under each reel, which keeps count of the number of skulls appearing on the given reel. When that number reaches four, the whole reel will be covered in wilds to form one big skull that remains locked during four subsequent paid spins.
The game boasts a maximum win of 45,000 coins, while the Free Spins feature promises tons of payouts with guaranteed wins, stacked and random wilds.
The highest paying symbol is the Scatter with 2,250 coins which is not bad, especially when there is the option to get four sticky wilds during your usual spinning action. The bet ranges from $0.30 to $6, while the return to player is 95%.
What can we say here except that you should definitely not skip this slot. While we expect nothing less than superb audio-visual experience from iSoftBet, what truly immerses you in this game are the features that match all the excitement of a pirate quest for treasure.
The base game is spiced up with the sticky wilds feature while Free Spins have plenty of options to keep your balance alive and kicking. It is a low to medium variance slot that will pay often enough so we can say that Skulls of Legend is one well-designed video slot that you will enjoy playing this autumn.
