A 5×5 grid, the Booty Bay slot is a cluster pays game with progressive multipliers on the wilds, sticky wilds, and potentially unlimited respins.
There’s always something fun about playing on a grid slot, especially with a great theme that takes the buccaneers to a square island.
That’s right. Square. Right in the center 3×3 is a little island surrounded by water. This island is the hotspot and 90% of the reason why you’ll get the top win of 20,000x your bet.
The treasure chest wild is your best friend in this Booty Bay mobile slot, mostly because you get no free spins but plenty of re-spins thanks to this symbol.
If it lands on the Hotzone, you’ll get a walking wild with an increasing multiplier for unlimited respins as long as it stays in the Hotzone.
If you get a locked wild symbol, on the other hand, all wild symbols will remain sticky for 3 respins. The swirling rapid symbols will move all wilds into the Hotzone, giving you sticky wilds with multipliers.
All this can lead to the Triple Wild Feature where you might get 3 respin with locked wilds in the hot spot zone and increasing multiplier on each spin.
So where are wild symbols in this Booty Bay slot game? Because for the most part, we found it difficult to find them when almost all your features and symbols are dependent on you having at least one or two wilds on screen.
We have no doubt that the unlimited respins with walking wilds and increasing multipliers can give you massive wins.
But as you need a cluster of 6 symbols to create a win, which is one more than the usual 5 of games like the Viking Runecraft slot, it’s hard to get wins.
You do get the pirate map feature which can give you wins of up to 5,000x your bet, which feels like the closest you get to those big wins. But the Booty Bay online slot is a volatile game that needs time and patience. Hunting for treasure is never easy.

Cluster Wins: Get 6 symbols or more touching horizontally or vertically and you'll get a win.
Booty Wild Symbol: The treasure chest is a wild symbol that substitutes for all other symbols. It can come with an attached multiplier that increases the win on any clusters and can increase on a win.
Hotzone: The central 3x3 position on the reel is the Hotzone. If you get a wild on the Hotzone, it triggers unlimited respins whilst the wild walks from one space to the next.
This continues for as long as the wild is in the Hotzone. If the wild moves to a random adjacent position in the Hotzone, the multiplier in that wild increases.
Locking Wilds Symbol and Feature: If you land a locking wild symbol on the reel it will stay sticky on screen. At this point, all wild symbols in the Hotzone also become locked in place for 3 respins. Locked Wilds increase their multipliers by one after every respin.
Swirling Rapids Symbol and Feature: Land the swirling rapids symbol anywhere on the reels and you'll get a respin of the reels. All unlocked booty wild symbols are moved to random positions within the Hotzone and all wilds increase their multiplier by 1.
Treasure Map Symbol and Feature: When the Treasure Map feature shows up, you'll get 6 possible prizes available to pick from a map. These can range from 1x to 5,000x your bet. You can also win one of the bonus symbols to trigger another feature.
Triple Wild Lock Feature: If you have 3 booty wild symbols on the reel, you trigger this bonus. All wilds in the Hotzone become locked in place for 3 respins and the multiplier increase by 1 after each respin. If a locking wild symbol lands during the feature, the response reset to 3.
This Booty Bay slot is ok. It should be better than ok because it has a 20,000x your bet max win, but we have no idea how you'd get that kind of win.
But we had to keep that sum in mind because at the end of the day, this volatile slot is a slow burner and only brave adventurers will get to where X marks the spot.
As Pirate slots go, this one is a well-themed game with lots of features and wins. If you are used to high variance machines that are a slow burn, you'll enjoy this Booty Bay game.
