I have said it many times before and I’ll say it again. Exclusive releases are a perk as a player and if your casino does them, they are doing it as a gift to the players. I mean to be able to play a game a week or sometimes even two before other players can get their hands on them is fun.
BitStarz is one of the crypto casinos that does it most frequently and this week there are actually two of them – Pirate’s Legacy and Golden Strawberries.
If you want to try these ones out before the official release dates, you’ll have to do so before a certain date.
Official Release Dates
The official release date for Pirate’s Legacy is this Thursday, February 2nd. For Golden Strawberries you have another week as the general public can play it on February 9th.
Here’s what you can look forward to as a BitStarz player!
1) Pirate’s Legacy – Platipus
There were a few different reasons why pirates wanted to sail the seven seas but the biggest one was of course G-O-L-D. If you can access the gold without having to risk sea sickness and other deadly diseases, not getting aboard the ship is a no-brainer. The solution to that problem is easy – Pirates Legacy!
How About Some Rum?
Detailed graphics and with a Captain Hook wannabee in charge of the action, there’s no telling what can happen. Graphics are always one of the first things about a slot I look for and I really enjoyed the 3D-details in this game.
For example, it’s hard to tell from an image but the bottles of Rum actually tips and pour some of it out.
Time To Collect Your Jackpot
One of the most important symbols in play is the skull-decorated chest known as the Collect symbol. When this guy appears on reel number 5 in the base game, get ready to cash in on the bonus symbols on screen, big or small.
Your bonus symbols can give you cash prizes of 30x up to 450x your bet but the biggest rewards are of course the 4 Jackpots:
- Grand Jackpot – 15,000x
- Major Jackpot – 7,500x
- Minor Jackpot – 1,500x
- Mini Jackpot – 750x
Use the Buy Bonus to get to the Free Spins faster than normal and there are 3 different levels at your disposal:
- 3+ Free Spin Symbols – Between 3-12 Free Spins will cost you 100x your bet
- 5+ Free Spins Symbols – Between 5-12 Free Spins will cost you 1500x your bet
- 7+ Free Spins Symbols – Between 7-12 Free Spins will cost you 250x your bet
How to Maximize Your Free Spins
I really like how Platipus uses the Free Spin symbol in this game because of the different amount of spins. If you manage to trigger them with the help of the Collect symbol on the 5th reel, the number of spins will be added up and become yours.
You can see in the image above how I managed to get 11 of them.
Remember how you had to land the Collect symbol on the last reel? Well, during Free Spins it doesn’t matter where it lands because anything goes. For example in the image above, you can see the Collect symbol on reel 1 and a Free Spin symbol on the middle reel. This got me an additional 3 spins, so it’s quite easy to pick up some extra along the way.
Massive Mega Win
Betting as low as €0.30 doesn’t usually get you a lot of money even if the wins are big but my bonus round got me a tasty €35.55 which I’m very pleased with. If I can do it, so can you!
Pirate’s Legacy is a very good game that looks great and plays great. You should definitely give it a go and remember, if you want to play it before everyone else gets access to it, head over to BitStarz before Thursday, February 2nd!
2) Golden Strawberries – Booming Games
If you’re expecting the same action from the Golden Strawberries, don’t. This is a completely different game and not quite as exciting as the pirate party above.
I wish there were Golden Strawberries in real life because they look really cool but you’ll have to settle for the ones on the screen. On the other hand, they can make you some extra cash. Maybe not a ton of it but enough to get you some real strawberries at least.
Golden Strawberry Payouts
The headlining act here is known as the Golden Strawberry Payouts and it all comes down to how many of them you can collect. You’ll see the entire prize collection on the left side of the reels so it’s easy to see how much you have to look forward to.
At the most, I managed to get 5 of them, which paid out €3.00. It doesn’t sound like much but considering I only bet €0.20 I guess it’s ok.
Wheel of Fortune – Unlimited Free Spins
Any slot featuring a Wheel of Fortune gets me excited as I think it’s something outside of the ordinary, which is fun. In order to trigger it you need to Bonus scatters to land on reels 2, 3 and 4.
You will only get 1 spin at the wheel but each wedge contains a number of Free Spins as well as a multiplier.
Re-trigger Your Free Spins
Free Spins can be re-triggered and if you do, it will be the same amount of spins as your initial trigger. I wasn’t able to get to the bonus wheel but I’m sure you can get the job done.
Slow and Steady Wins the Race
If you are looking for the big payouts, Golden Strawberries might not be the game for you but if you believe that slow and steady wins the race, give it a shot. The game is a bit slow for my taste but that doesn’t mean you won’t like it.
BitStarz does have the exclusive release all the way until February 9th, so if you want to find out if you can spin the Wheel of Fortune as well as you think you can, you know where to find it.
More Exclusive Releases Coming Up
These types of releases are getting dropped from time to time and I will let you know when I become aware of them. Once again, an exclusive release is a treat to players and you don’t even have to be a VIP.
