Skull Duggery looks like a very elaborate slot from Microgaming, graphics wise at least, and it’s the symbols which have pirates in them that will get the most attention. The pirate themed part of the game is the better looking one, while the classic fruits shown in some of the symbols might not pay as much, or be as elaborate, but they will still look modern. The list of features opens with the Booty Bonus, and then moves to the wild and its multiplier, and then to the scatter symbol. Big payouts, as high as $60,000, are won from this game, which has just 9 pay lines and 5 reels.
Betting and Prizes
The line bet can get to a pretty normal size, of up to $5, doing this with a maximum of 5 coins that have denominations of up to $1. Since there are only 9 lines, the total bet is not going to be as expensive as in other slots, $45 being its highest value.
The top prize is one of the things that the game does very well. Offering a 12,000x jackpot, Skull Duggery is actually one of the games that can give you the most bang for your buck, at least if you’re lucky enough to land that top prize. The value will obviously depend on the type of line bet you used, the highest one being at $60,000.
Skull Duggery Slot Features
Look out for the Skull Duggery Logo, that symbol pays the most in this slot machine, but to get the 12,000x jackpot you will need an entire line of symbols to be of this type. Payouts are offered even for a single wild, though they will be small, and the wild needs to be in the first position of the line. As for the wild role, it will be the typical one, where the logo acts as a substitute for a regular symbol, but with a limitation, since it will only work with Food symbols, the ones which pay less. Wilds have an added advantage of being able to triple wins which form with help from them.
The Skull symbol, with gold coins all around it, is used as a scatter that will pay prizes, nothing else. Having it appear in two or more positions will be enough to trigger the prize, the value of which will range from 2x to 200x total bet.
Finally, we have the Booty Bonus feature, which starts up when 3 to 5 symbols with the treasure chest thief are present in the game. The feature takes into account the number of symbols and based on that, there will be a range for the prizes you can win. The best range, of 200x to 3,000x, is used when there are five triggering symbols.
Theme & Design
Skull Duggery slot has a pretty design, one which combines pirate themed symbols that are very elaborate, with fruit themed icons that look modern, even though they’re not as complex as the higher paying ones. The pirate theme, though not an original choice, still works very well and makes this an attractive slot machine.
Skull Duggery’s graphics and features are among its main attraction points, but the payouts are the ones that look best.
