The start of the bonus feature in the machine is very strange: it is necessary to wait for two symbols (scatters) - ship and the island (there is a third scatter (compass), but it does not affect the bonus). After this, you will get ten free spins bonus, which can be retriggered. If any of the reels with ship symbol show up with a boat and a pirate Sharky, it begins to go from left to right, performing the role of Wild during every new spin. It replaces most of the other characters and completes winning combinations. Such Wild may fall a lot of times, but they can also disappear in two cases:
- If Sharky is hit one cell with a shark (then it just disappears)
- Or close to the treasure chest (if the player gets a random reward of from 0 up to 18,450 coins).
- The variance in the slot is high. The maximum payout is 50,000 coins (on the maximum line and rate).
