New BountyPop Slot From Yggdrasil & AvatarUX Uses The Innovative PopWins MechanismPublished December 9, 2020 by Arthur M
BountyPop is the latest slot from Yggdrasil and AvatarUx and it features the PopWins system that expands reels to give up to 59,049 ways to win.
Pirates fill the 5 reels of the new BountyPop slot from Yggdrasil and their partner studio AvatarUX. It's a PC and mobile optimised game where winning symbols split to expand the reels, boosting the number of ways to a maximum of 59,049.
Pop With The Pirates
The PopWins system used here has already proved successful with the Wild Pop and CherryPop games. Play starts out with 3 rows of symbols crossed by 486 ways to win. The various cartoon-style pirates return higher prizes, while playing card symbols are worth less. All symbols in a win 'Pop', splitting into 2, one above the other. This expands the number of ways to win and also triggers a respin of the reels.
If the respin creates a win, further Pops occur, and in the base games, it's possible to expand all reels to 6 symbols high. The reels reset to 3 rows on a losing respin.
Trigger The Bonus Wheel
Once all reels hit 6 rows, a 2-stage bonus wheel appears, awarding wins of up 10x. Any 3, 4, or 5 scatter symbols trigger 6, 9, or 12 free spins, during which the reels don't reset on a loss and can expand to 9 rows high. This activates further bonus wheels, where it's possible to claim wins of 100x.
The maximum win from the BountyPop slot is an amazing 55,000x the bet. It's a high volatility game with average returns of 96%, and available to play for between 0.20 and 20.00 per spin.
