Smugglers Cove Slot Conclusion

In this slot, the pirates have certainly hit the jackpot, as the cove turns out to be filled with valuable treasures. Pirate themes are something that have been used on numerous occasions and Pragmatic Play themself have used it in the past. But despite the heavy use of this theme, it is always just as exciting with these slots, as they usually contain a great mix of features. This time around, the Treasure Bonus can help create big sudden wins and this can be activated within both the base and bonus game. Within the base game, 5 or more-coin symbols are required to activate it, where depending on the number of coin symbols, you will receive an instant win of up to 1000X which can also be combined with multipliers. But by activating the Free Spins feature, you get the opportunity to win much more. Only 3 or more-coin symbols are required to trigger the Treasure Bonus, where you can get an instant prize of up to 10000X the bet.

This size of the game's maximum potential win is great, which is a doubling from the otherwise usual max win limit of 5000X from this game provider. An increase that is certainly appreciated and combined with a high RTP of 96.50% by default, the gaming experience is very enjoyable. The RTP is admittedly by default and some gaming operators may choose to use a lower RTP, which can lower one's winning chances, so one should check what applies before spinning the reels. Although the theme is well used and its associated features don't spark innovation, these do coalesce in a pleasing manner. Where its high volatility can result in sudden big wins and thus provides an entertaining moment in front of the screen.

Smugglers Cove is a slot where we join some pirates in the search for gold coins, where the right amount of these can yield gigantic payouts.
