Loose Cannon has a wild, a scatter and a bonus feature. The jackpot payout is dependent on your betting amount; if you’ve bet the maximum amount then you will be paid out no less than 75 000 coins. This pirate-themed online slot machine game has a return to player (RTP) percentage of around 97%.
A Pirate-Themed Online Slot
Pirate-themes can go horribly wrong if not done correctly; thankfully Loose Cannon hits the mark. The colours across the board are bright and cheerful, of course sporting a few pirate-themed characters which make up the symbols. There is the Loose Cannon symbol that proudly carries an image of a cannon as well as the games logo, other symbols include the captain, the pirate girl, the monkey, a treasure chest, a treasure map, a bottle of rum (with a red crab on guard), and 2 pistol guns. Most other online slot games have card-style symbols, this one doesn’t.
The background ties in nicely with the theme which is set on the deck of a pirate ship. The sound effects are perfectly matched with a merry pirate jingle playing in the background, with a bit more hype when landing on winning combinations.
How to Play Loose Cannon
Playing Loose Cannon is as simple as selecting your bet size and clicking on ‘spin’ to get the reels rolling. The maximum bet is 5 coins, with a betting range of 0.01 – 0.25. There is also a bet multiplier of 30 with every spin. This game boasts 243 ways to win, and it’s a good thing to know that through each speech each of the 243 ways is enabled.
Winning combinations pay out differently depending on the symbol that comprises the combination. The highest paying symbol is the Loose Cannon symbol which pays out up to 25 coins. The other symbols follow suit but decrease slightly in payouts. This is where the 243 ways to win really comes in to play. The payouts per symbol might not be as high as other online slot games but with the 243 activate paylines there’s almost a win with every spin at River Belle Casino.
A Wild, a Scatter and a Bonus Feature
The wild symbol is the pirate ship symbol that clearly states ‘wild’ across the sails. As with most other wild symbols it can substitute for any other symbol on the reels to help complete a winning combination. The only symbol it cannot substitute is the scatter symbol. The pirate ship wild symbol can appear stacked and in this case will increase your chances of winning.
The scatter symbol is the compass symbol that clearly states ‘scatter’ along the bottom of the symbol. The scatter symbol appears on reels, 1, 3 and 5 only and also acts in favour of completing winning combinations. If you land with 3 or more scatters on reels 1, 3 and 5 simultaneously then the bonus feature will activate.
The free spin bonus feature will reward players with up to 15 free spins. All winning combinations whilst in the free spin mode will be claimed at the end of the round.
