Pirates' Plenty 2: Battle for Gold does include wild symbols, although not straight out of the box. There is a Wild Monkey symbol which may appear on any spin in the base game, stealing all low-value symbols visible on the reels to allow new premium symbols to take their place. The Wild Monkey will then remain in the position of the last symbol removed, and a multiplier value will be applied.
To receive the full wild treatment, however, you need to collect 50 Map Symbols - this will unlock an extra row to give you a total of 30 paylines as well as introducing extra wild symbols to the reels. As if not enough, these wilds may carry win multipliers of 2x, 3x, 4x or 5x and if they stack up on a payline, they'll add up together (for example, 3x * 3x = 9x multiplier). The Wild Island Row remains unlocked for all future spins at the same stake.
Three Battle Spins bonus symbols anywhere in view triggers the Battle Spins Free Spins feature. With a random number of free spins awarded, you'll benefit from sticky wilds that lock in position for the duration of the feature. Keep an eye out for the Fire! Symbol - when it appears on the reels, one or more cannonballs will be fired which can either turn into wilds or hit the enemy ship to award 1+ spin. Finally, Captain Blackbeard himself may also appear to give you some backup. When he does, he'll throw wild bombs onto the reels, which also become sticky.
Keep in mind, if you head into the Battle Spins with the Wild Island Row unlocked, there's a chance for you to land sticky multiplier wilds.
For the most part, the nuts and bolts of Pirates' Plenty 2: Battle for Gold work as they did previously, keeping enough of the original appeal intact while folding in elegant new ideas. Moreover, we've found the sequel to have more personality weaved into it whilst also boasting an even bigger and more impressive production as a means to help you escape to this fantastical world. The art and visual presentation of the game stands abreast with its entertaining features, making this sequel worth looking into.
