Wild Plunder is a 5 reel, 25 payline slot powered by NextGen Gaming that has a pirate theme. Playable from 25p to £625 per spin on all devices, join captain Jolly Rhonda where you can benefit from wild spins with roaming Jolly Rhonda wilds and symbol blasts for extra wild spins. There’s also a re-spin feature and 2 randomly triggered features which give you up to 9 Wild Plunder wilds or Jolly Rhonda wilds.
Visually, Wild Plunder has cartoon style graphics and sees the reels floating across a revolving globe. You’ll see places the pirates visit as you spin the reels – it looks superb and nothing we’ve come across before. Symbols on the reels include wood, bronze, silver and gold coins as well as beer mugs, treasure chests, ghost pirates and octopi.
The game comes with 2 wild symbols – you have the Wild Plunder logo wild which replaces all symbols except the Jolly Rhonda wild. It shows up on 2 of the features described below. The Jolly Rhonda wild replaces all symbols and rewards you 16 times your stake for 5 across a payline.
When it comes to bonus features, Wild Plunder comes with 4. During the base game, stormy weather can random spin the globe. If you spin up an island over reel 3, you’ll see between 3 and 9 Wild Plunder logo wilds added to reels 2, 3 and 4 – this can lead to 3 fully wild reels. This is known as the Wild Currents feature.
The main attraction is the Wild Spins feature which is played when 2 or more Jolly Rhonda wilds appear on the reels – this will give you up to 5 wild spins. You will benefit from extra wild spins for each new Jolly Rhonda wild that appears too.
Now, Jolly Rhonda wilds move/roam 1 reel left on each wild spin – they can also blast adjacent high value symbols (such as the beer mug, treasure chest, ghost pirate or octopus) to give you even more wild symbols! Once the Jolly Rhonda wilds reach reel 1, they jump off the reels on the next wild spin.
To help you trigger the Wild Spins feature, there’s Rhonda’s Re-Spin feature – this is triggered when you get just 1 Jolly Rhonda wild. The captain may swing in to give you a special re-spin which can you that the 2nd Jolly Rhonda wild in order to trigger the Wild Spins feature.
Furthermore, the mighty Kraken can appear randomly in the base game to add Jolly Rhonda wilds. Known as the Release the Kraken feature, Jolly Rhonda wilds will trigger the Wild Spins feature.
Wild Plunder is a lot simpler than it reads – basically, you have the randomly triggered Wild Currents feature which can give you up to 3 wild reels for big wins. It’s all about the Wild Spins feature where plenty of Jolly Rhonda wilds can lead to lots of wild spins.
If you were to fill the reels with Jolly Rhonda wilds, you’d win 400 times your stake so variance wise it’s low to medium. Saying that, if you get a few wild spins, it can lead to big wins. If you like the pirate theme, I recommend you try Quickspin’s Pirate’s Charm and ELK Studios’ Wild Seas which offer bigger winning potential.
