The wombat says: Microgaming (of Silver Fang slot fame) has pitched Skull Duggery, their pirate adventure slot, at those who love a traditional slot. It’s like a colourful old-school classic but with the slick game play that this furry critter has come to expect from those slot wizards.
Set your course for adventure Wombat Fans because that is where Skull Duggery slot is intent on sailing you. You’re part of the pirate crew who are hunting for treasure at any cost!
Will this Wombat hit the jackpot and find buried gold? Or will the sneaky antics of my fellow crewmates going to leave me marooned? Let’s jump right in and see if x marks the spot!
Look and Feel
Skull Duggery is super colourful with it’s the animated cartoon pirate characters adorning the reels. These boys and girls have all been spending time on the Hot Ink slot by the look of their tattoos. The reels themselves are set on dark background and flanked by a ye olde wooden treasure chest that’s bound to be full of treasure.
This game transports you onto the high buccaneering seas with its soundtrack of splashing waves and dolphin calls, giving it an upbeat mood.
OK, there is no denying that this game isn’t as flash as others out there when it comes to the graphics, but Skull Duggery does have a look and feel of a good old pirate romp with a cast of comic mutinous characters to get you in the mood to capture your own pieces of gold! Oooh-aar me hearties!
Skull Duggery has 5 reels, 3 rows and 9 pay-lines- quite a few less than the likes of the Football Champions slot with 20, but interestingly this is still a pretty low variance game. The high value icons are the grinning pirate Red Beard (complete with parrot and a skull and cross-bone hat), a pirate map pierced with a dagger, and an overflowing flagon of ale – or maybe a generous rum (here’s hoping). The lower value icons are juicy tropical island fruit including an orange, grape, mango, banana and coconut, (that list’s enough to make this Wombat hungry).
The Wild is the Skull Duggery symbol and substitutes for fruit icons only – however on the plus side these wins are then tripled! The Scatter is a leering skull candle on a pile pirate booty.
Skull Duggery Bonus feature
The Bonus Booty feature comes into play if you are lucky enough to get your hands on 3x or more bonus icons of the sneaky thief creeping away with the treasure. Once you are in the Bonus round, you must choose which of 5 scurvy-ridden crewmates has stolen the gold and will walk the plank. Making a fellow buccaneer jump in the ocean is good fun, and this Wombat thinks it adds to the authentic flavour of this slot.
If you’re a salty sea dog at heart, then Skull Duggery slot might be just the game for you. This game looks and feels fun to play and its triple pay out for the Wilds is a good sweetener. This game isn’t the most up to date, but it does make amends with its satisfying game play and fun bonus. If, like this Wombat, you enjoy nothing more than high jinx and picking up pieces of eight – then make a date with this game!
