9 Skulls of Gold Slot Overview

9 Skulls of Gold is a new casino slot from Buck Stakes Entertainment following four pirate women in their hunt for treasures. The game and its features are almost identical to the recently released Money Mines, where we explored a fantasy world beneath the earth’s surface. The female pirates can award spins in the base game and cash prizes in the free spins, where you can start with up to 30 spins and a 3X multiplier. You’ll also find the Firepot feature, where 9 Skulls of Gold award 2000X the bet in one spin.

Base game

9 Skulls of Gold is a video slot from Buck Stakes Entertainment with 5 reels, 3 rows, and 20 paylines. The Min.bet is 0.2, and the Max.bet is 125. The game’s RTP is a pretty solid 96.33%, and the volatility is high. Landing the perfect combination will result in the max win of 2000X the bet, and the hit frequency of 36.91% means that over every third spin results in a win.

On this pirate adventure, make sure to look for the features Wild Symbol, Scatter Symbol, Golden Scatter Symbol, Firepot Symbol, Bonus Wheel, and Free Spins.

9 Skulls of Gold Slot Information

9 Skulls of Gold takes place in a beautiful setting. We’re standing on a beach, looking out to sea where the sun is about to set. Small waves are rolling in, and we can see a few peaky rock formations sticking up like small islands. It’s almost like we’re on the Phi Phi Islands in Thailand, the location where The Beach with Leonardo DiCaprio was shot. The reels are placed to the right, and to the left is a display of the wins in the Firepot feature, where you can win up to 2000X the bet in one spin. The music has a cover band touch, sounding like a sing-along tune, although there are no lyrics. To make a win, you need to land at least 3 of the same symbols on a payline going left to right, starting on the first reel to the left. 9 Skulls of Gold is available on all devices, such as desktops, notepads, and mobile phones.

The lower-paying symbols are, just as in Money Mines, the four main characters. The female pirates are a dark-haired woman with a green bandana, a red-haired with a blue bandana, a browned-haired with a yellow bandana, and a captain with a purple hat and a parrot on her shoulder. Landing a win of 5 of these women will pay between 1 and 2 spins in the base game, and between 1X and 2X the bet in the free spins. The higher-paying symbols are three versions of the number 7. Landing a 5-symbol win containing singles (7), doubles (77), or triples (777) will award between 7.5X and 37.5X the bet. If you make a 5-symbol win combining the 7’s in any way, you’ll be awarded 2.5X the bet. The Wild Symbol substitutes all mentioned symbols and also pays up to 125X the bet on its own. It doesn’t substitute the Scatter Symbols or the Firepot Symbol.

You can win up to 2000X the bet.

What features are available in the slot 9 Skulls of Gold?

The features are Wild Symbol, Scatter Symbol, Golden Scatter Symbol, Firepot Symbol, Bonus Wheel, and Free Spins.

Firepot Win

Wild Symbol

The Wild Symbol is depicted by a W. It substitutes all regular paying symbols but not the Scatters or the Firepot. It also pays on its own, awarding 6.25X, 25X, or 125X the bet for a win containing 3, 4, or 5 symbols.

Scatter Symbol

The Scatter Symbol says free spins and appears on reels 2, 3, and 4. Landing 3 will activate the free spins and pay 1X the bet.

Golden Scatter Symbol

The Scatter Symbol randomly changes into a golden one. The golden scatters are collected in a chest next to the reels, awarding up to 5 extra spins in the free spins.

Bonus Wheel

Firepot Symbol

The Firepot symbol is a death skull with a red bandana. It can appear on any reel and awards a cash prize for 3-9 symbols, wherever they land. This is how much they pay:

3 Firepot Symbols = 1X the bet

4 Firepot Symbols = 5X the bet

5 Firepot Symbols = 15X the bet

6 Firepot Symbols = 40X the bet

7 Firepot Symbols = 100X the bet

8 Firepot Symbols = 500X the bet

9 Firepot Symbols = 2000X the bet

Landing 3 or 4 Firepots in the base game will award 1 and 5 spins instead of 1X and 5X the bet.

Bonus Wheel

The Bonus Wheel kicks in as soon as the free spins are activated. It will give you one spin, landing between 10 and 30 free spins, with a 2X or 3X multiplier. The free spins start as soon as the Bonus Wheel feature is over.

Free Spins

Free Spins

The Free Spins start with anything between 10 and 30 spins, depending on what the bonus wheel gives you. You can also get up to 5 extra spins from the chest, depending on how many golden scatter symbols you collected. You’ll also have a 2X or 3X multiplier that is applied to all wins except the Firepot. The free spins can be retriggered by landing 3 scatters. You’ll get the same number of spins as the wheel awarded you.

9 Skulls of Gold Slot Conclusion

9 Skulls of Gold is a pretty good-looking casino slot with a female pirate theme. The music sounds like an intro that never kicks off to a proper song, and the game suffers from the same symptom. It’s pretty cool, but we can’t help to notice that it’s pretty much the same game as Money Mines. The only thing that has changed is the four main characters.

The Firepot is a pretty solid feature, and we appreciate that it starts paying as long as you land 3 symbols anywhere on the grid. That’s a blessing compared to features where you have to land at least 6 special characters, or they won’t do anything, which often results in the special symbols being in the way since you can’t make regular wins with them. Unfortunately, that little perk isn’t enough to make this a fantastic game. The max win of 2000X the bet, which you can achieve in the Firepot, isn’t impressive either for a highly volatile slot. The RTP of 96.33% is a lot better, though. Firepot is an Epic Strike feature that has been included in several other games. If you want to check out another game in the genre, we can advise you to have a look at Jade Shuriken or Wild Marlin! - Big Game Fishing.

9 Skulls of Gold from Buck Stakes Entertainment is a pirate adventure with four wild females where the player can land the Firepot max win of 2000X the bet in one spin.
