Bounty Pop online slot by Yggdrasil and AvatarUX is the newest addition to the developer’s PopWins series and the newest release from its YG Masters programme. The slot has a magical pirate theme with ferocious buccaneers featuring as symbols against a nebulous background of shifting lights. The PopWins mechanic causes symbols in winning combinations to disappear and be replaced by two new symbols, increasing the size of the reels. Bonus features include free spins, multipliers, and a changing reelset.
Each winning combination you land will cause the involved symbols to disappear and be replaced by 2 new symbols each, which will increase the height of the reels to a maximum of 6 rows during the base game and 9 symbols high during free spins.
If 3 or more scatter symbols appear on the reels, you will activate free spins. Landing 3, 4, or 5 scatters will award you 6, 9, or12 free spins. You will also be presented with the option of a gamble wheel where you could increase your number of free spins or lose them all. With the reels being able to expand up to 9 symbols high, your potential ways to win are increased to 59 049.
If you get all 5 reels to 7 rows high, you will unlock a multiplier wheel sub-feature, the wheel spins to award you a bronze, silver, or gold multiplier prize worth anything from 2x to 100x your stake. If waiting for scatters is too much to bear, you can use the Bonus Buy feature to instantly access free spins for 100x your bet.
If you get all the reels to a height of 6 rows during the base game, you will activate the Mystery Wheel feature that can give you up to a 10x multiplier which is applied to your win.
Bounty Pop slot brings some fresh thematic excitement to an existing concept that still inspires thrills. The slot's theme is vibrantly, if somewhat loosely conceived, featuring entertaining illustrations of a range of exotic characters. The base game brings constant excitement as the reels expand to increase your winning chances and give you a shot at a multiplier to further swell your bankroll.
Free spins deliver even more potential with the multiplier wheel feature, giving you the chance to walk away with the slot’s maximum prize of $1.1 million. The theme isn’t much of an enhancement from previous titles in the series but the gameplay and potential alone make it worth popping in to take a spin.
