Rounding Up Smugglers Cove – A Real Treasure Treat!

This title may not exactly have the Christmas spirit like Pragmatic Play’s, Christmas Big Bass Bonanza, but it certainly provides something different for the holiday season. Graphically, this title is pretty outstanding, with a detailed backdrop and a stimulating soundtrack. The gameplay is pretty standard with the biggest money coming after landing the scatters, but having the Treasure Bonus makes the base game more exciting with the chance to win 1000x on any spin. To take home the 10,000x max win, then the only realistic chance is via Free Spins, which kicks off with a heart-pounding free spin wheel to get you ready for the high tension ahead. Overall, an enjoyable slot with smart graphics, and high payout possibilities.

The great thing about Pragmatic Play slots is that you can use them for many bonuses and promotions. Most will contribute 100% to the wagering of deposit bonuses, while the developer also runs its own promotions, such as Drops & Wins, that could land you random cash prizes as you play the firms slots.
