Juicy Booty Slots
Before I go any further with this review, lets clarify the name! The booty referred to here is in fact pirate’s treasure. The juice component comes from fruit, which gets sliced with a cutlass and blasted with a cannon at various points in the game. This Ash Gaming slot game is smart and entertaining – giving you a new perspective on the pirate theme. It is not the only pirate themed slot from this slot software house, you can also enjoy the treasure map bonus on Chests of Plenty, also by Ash Gaming.
Before You Set Sail – How the Juicy Booty Slot Works
You will play this game as if looking length-ways down the deck of a ship. The reels are transparent, showing details of the ship, sea and blue skies while the reels are in motion. There are 25 lines in total, which are fixed in place for this slot. You can bet from just 1c per line and up.
On the reels you will see a mix of fruit and pirate related symbols. The special on-reel pirate feature can slice fruit into many extra pieces, giving you up to 15 of a kind of each one. What happens is that a pirate monkey, complete with cutlass, swings in on a rope, chops up various pieces of fruit, and then disappears. That fruit can be either 3 pieces or 2. This means you can get up to 15 pieces of each kind of fruit on each win-line.
If you get 15 pieces of pineapple, that will bring you 5000 coins, with 4000 for 14 – and down all the way to 15 coins for 3. There are also melons, mangoes, bananas, plums and oranges on the reels. Even the smallest prize for 15 pieces is 1,000 (for the oranges).
Pirate themed items do not get sliced. Here you can get a maximum of 5 of a kind. The best paying is a coin with a skull on it (presumably a doubloon), which is worth 5000 coins for 5. There is also a telescope, compass and hooked arm attachment.
You will find a wild, this is the Juicy Booty logo which includes crossed cutlasses. This will substitute for all the regular symbols. It also has the single biggest line prize – 10,000 coins for 5 of a kind.
Cannon Free Spins
Free Spins are triggered by hitting 3 of the scatter symbols, which are barrels in a red circle. These are different from the base game, as there are new mystery symbols – which get blasted by a cannon after you spin. These mystery symbols become any regular symbol, including pre-sliced fruit. This gives you a better shot at some of the bigger prizes for 10+ of a kind fruit symbols.
Fruit Shoot Bonus Game
The final bonus is entertaining, and is triggered by hitting 3 of the bonus symbols anywhere on the reels. You get to fire a cannon, by clicking your mouse, to try and hit fruits. The best thing about this bonus is that you get extra shots if you miss! Each time you hit a fruit, you win a cash prize.
There is also a progressive jackpot element to this game. If you manage to find three different looking keys during this bonus game, you’ll win the progressive jackpot prize.
Overall, the design of this slot is impressive – and different to any of the other pirate themed slot games around. The length-ways view of the ship behind the reels is really nicely produced, with details like the line markers going up the mast and ragged sails above the reels making a big difference.
Many slots have fruit on the reels, though these symbols look more like the real thing than the traditional slot symbols. When the monkey pirate comes and slices them, you’ll see smaller versions of the same fruit alongside. The pirate themed items and fruits are all animate when they are involved in wins.
My favorite animation is the monkey. This appears at random to slice the fruits. You will find the shooting game is also well produced – as are the on-theme sound effects and sea-shanty tunes.
Does X Mark the Spot for Juicy Booty?
For a humorous take on a theme which is usually more serious – Juicy Booty is a great slot. Game play is different to most games, with a shot at up to 15 of a kind for some of the symbols. There are also 2 entertaining bonus games – one where you get to shoot up the booty yourself to win extra prizes. Topping it all off is the shot at a progressive jackpot during the shooting picks game. Make sure you check out Juicy Booty for yourself soon!
