Thus, you can wager from 0.01 to £5 on each of the 15 bet lines. The wilds with 3x boosts, the scatters, and free spins with up to 6x multipliers grant massive cash prizes.
Through the top player from the standard symbols and the wild in a combination, you can win 400 times your stake. This is possible as your payout will be boosted with a 3x multiplier. You can win 2,000 times your stake which is £150,000 when you use a stake of £75. Thanks to the presence of wilds and free spins with multipliers, you can add up to 2,400 times your stake.

The slot takes place in the open sea on the board of a pirate ship. Around the playing window, you see the clear light-blue sky and sea. You will hear the waves and the sounds of the spinning reels. The playing grid is in the centre with each of the 15 pay-lines numbered on both its sides. On the reels, there will be a wild male character and a female scatter with a gun.
There are Japanese sake and a treasure chest full of gold. You can land red ships in Japanese style with hieroglyphs, and pistols with knives. The 10 to A royal cards also take part in the game. The background of the reels set represents a parchment. Each of your Wins will signal a ringing bell and a quick tune.

The symbols taking part in the game are the standard 10, J, Q, K, and A royals. There is Japanese sake, a pistol and knife, a treasure chest with gold, and a pirate ship. The treasure chest is the most profusely rewarding symbol. Landing 2, 3, 4, and 5 of it give you 0.33, 1.66, 20, and 133.33 times your stake respectively.
The wild is the boy pirate and this is the most important symbol in the game. As normally, it substitutes for all missing ones except the scatter. The pirate boy wild gives you an extra benefit. It increases your bet line wins with a multiplier of x3 when it is part of a winning combination. The best payout you can get with it is 4 treasure chests plus a wild. This would equal 400 times your stake (133.33 multiplied by 3).
The scatter is the girl with the hat and gun which lands in the main game and free spins. Its payout is 2, 4, 15, and 100 times your stake for 2, 3, 4, and 5 symbols respectively. Landing 3 or more of the girl scatter in a single round gives you the Free Spins and a multiplier boost. The maximal number of free spins you can add is 28, while the highest multiplier value achievable is 6x. If you land one or more scatters during free spins, you will get an extra free round per each symbol.

The September release of this Japanese-inspired game offers you good payouts. You can win 400, 2,000 or even 2,400 times your stake per spin through the wilds and multipliers.
