Plunder the seas and score big wins in NextGen Wild Plunder online slot! The 5×3 slot is a favorite of many Indian players thanks to the clean and simple interface as well as the main “treasure” worth 250,000 coins. The slot has a visually compelling theme, with cartoony symbols on the reels including pirates and octopuses, all set against a background of blue seas.
The slot has 5 reels and 25 paylines. You can bet from as little as 25p per spin up to €625 – the range is pretty impressive. The pirate-themed slot has a clean interface that Indian players will love. Instead of stuffing the game visually with various objects, NextGen has opted for a clutter-free design which makes the slot all the more enticing.
Wild Plunder’s RTP is 96.272% and it has a low variance. Released in 2018, it’s available on desktop and mobile platforms as well. The game runs perfectly on smartphones thanks to the fact that it was developed on the HTML5 platform. If you’re into pirates, you’ll simply love Captain Jolly Rhonda and her ghost pirate crew.
The base game of the Wild Plunder slot promises a lot of fun. Winnings pay from the left to the right, with the bronze, silver, and gold coins providing small wins. The high-paying symbols in this game are pirate ghosts, treasure chests, pints of ale (of course), and octopuses. You’ll score the biggest wins by landing the red-haired captain Jolly Rhonda on the reels. Besides acting as a wild, this symbol will pay 40, 200 or 400 times your stake depending on how many of them land on the reels.
Due to the low variance, you’ll probably land frequent small wins instead of a few big ones. The low variance makes Wild Plunder perfect for beginners. However, due to the fact that the coin size goes up to €625 and the maximum win potential, you can also strike big. The real interesting stuff comes in the form of four bonus features.
With Wild Plunder’s four bonus features, you’ll certainly feel like a pirate plundering the seas. Some of the bonuses, such as Wild Currents, are triggered randomly. Notice the floating islands in the background? They aren’t there just to fit the design. They actually carry wilds which can be added to the reels randomly during stormy weather. In the slot, of course, not outside.
This can lead to 3 fully wild reels and amazing possibilities to score major wins. The Release the Kraken feature is also randomly triggered, adding Jolly Rhonda wilds on the reels that can possibly trigger Wild Spins.
The main pirate attraction in the Wild Plunder slot is the said Wild Spins feature. It is triggered when you land 2 or more Jolly Rhonda wilds on the reels. This will grant you 5 free spins. During this feature, the wilds will move to the left and possibly turn other high-paying symbols to more wilds. As soon as they drift away to reel one, they jump onto the next wild spin. If you only get 1 wild on the reels, captain Rhonda may lend a helping re-spin hand, giving you the wild you were missing for the wild spins.
All in all, we certainly liked what we’ve seen in Wild Plunder. Players coming from India will be thrilled about the possibility of landing big wins in the main game, but the real standout features are the bonus rounds. Jolly Rhonda is a friendly pirate who can swing in when you need her most. Trigger some of the four exciting bonuses and you may be in for a real pirate plunder.
