Plunder Ahoy! Thundershots Review
There is a hidden treasure all other the place in Plunder Ahoy! Thundershots and it's up to players to try to find it. Developed by Playtech, this pirate slot plays on 5-reels with 40 paylines but contains a huge amount of gameplay.
Firstly, there are modifiers that can attack the reels with wilds. Players will also be delighted to find free spins, multipliers and even a Thundershot wheel leading to some mighty wins fit for a pirate.
In terms of the design, the background is a beach setting with treasure maps and other items associated with pirates. On the reels, there are skulls, pirates, telescopes and other related items that fit in well.
The free spins music is definitely a knock-off of the Pirates of the Caribbean theme song but with a different ending. This is exactly what we expected whilst playing the slot so it fits in perfectly.
The base game music is just a generic pirate track with drums and stringed instruments creating something epic. However, it is worth mentioning that there is a voice-over from the pirate throughout free spins and also when players click on the symbols which is a cool attention to detail.
There is certainly no shortage of features in this slot starting with the amazing free spins round leading to multipliers, wilds, cash prizes and the Thundershot Wheel. In the base game, players can also trigger the modifiers leading to wilds added to the reels.
Everything the player will need can be found at the bottom of the screen with the spin button and bet level. There is a big button that says 'HELP' that features the paytable and other useful information that may help players.
Sadly, the RTP for this slot is under the expected average at 93.13% which is ridiculous considering there is no progressive jackpot or big payout in this slot. This high volatility slot only features a mediocre base game win.
With a name such as Thundershots, we expected a new type of progressive jackpots like Age of the Gods or Sporting Legends Jackpot which meant we were a little disappointed with the win potential.
Plunder Ahoy! Thundershots definitely had the potential to be a classic online slot but sadly fails with the win potential. Everything else in the slot is absolutely brilliant.
From the charming design to the vibrant gameplay, this slot almost has it all to keep players entertained. Ultimately, this is perfect for fans of pirate slots but definitely stay away if you are looking for crazy huge wins.
