Theme, Gameplay, and Graphics

We have to admit, we all thought of how would it be like to become pirates, hunt for treasures and use dark magic to attain our wishes. The slot machine that we have here by Microgaming brings you that, it is Skull Duggery. In this slot machine, you will become a pirate, and look for long lost treasures as you use black magic to achieve that. Skull Duggery is one of the classic slots by the developer, so you should not expect animations and modern visuals that new Microgaming slots offer. On the other hand, the slot still manages to deliver an immersive and entertaining experience, and most of all, a rewarding one. Skull Duggery has five reels and offers a total of nine lines. The visuals are basic and have cartoon-style.  The reels take the entire screen leaving no space for background visuals or animations.

The figures that will spin on the reels include a treasure map, skulls, golden coins and treasures, a pirate with his parrot and the Skull Duggery logo. You will also find other symbols that pay tribute to classic fruit machines, so you will find symbols like bananas, peaches, oranges, and grapes.

Bonus Features and Symbols

Skull Duggery is a Microgaming slot machine, and therefore, you can expect to find high-paying bonuses and unique icons. It comes with a wild multiplier; a scatter symbol and the Booty Bonus feature.

The Wild:

Skull Duggery’s wild icon is the wild symbol. It is not your usual wild icon, as it can only substitute for the fruit symbols to help you complete a winning “Food” combo. While that may sound like a downside, it makes up for it by tripling all winning combos that it helps create. The wild can also give out the biggest line prize of the slot machine that is equal 12,000. You can claim that when you get 5x of the wild symbols on the same line.

The Scatter Skull:

The Skull icon that comes with the Golden Coins is the scatter symbol of the slot machine that will help you collect Scatter awards. You will need to get from 2 to 5 Scatters to achieve that. You will claim a reward that is a multiple of the stake that varies between 2x and 200x the stake.

The Booty Bonus:

The bonus icon is the pirate holding the treasure chest on his back. If you manage to get three of these bonus icons, you will trigger the Booty Bonus. You will find five scurvy shipmates on a deck, and you will have to decide which one you are going to throw overboard into the water. You will receive a varying award depending on your pick. The amount also depends on the number of bonus icons that triggered the bonus.
