If you know a little about MGA, the software outfit behind this release, you will know they are Spanish, and therefore bring some Spanish treats to their games. Bucaneros means Buccaneers, and we all know that means pirates and the chance to hit the high seas.
Pirating games may not be original, but this one is a real delight. When the game screen loads you may be surprised by what you see, but you will be delighted if you manage to play through all its features.
This game is about as simple as it gets in this respect, with three reels and just one payline in action.
You will play this game with tokens. Each one is worth 20 cents, so bear this in mind when playing. You will play with either one, three or five tokens per spin, so the lowest bet for the line is a dollar.
The gold bars are wilds in this game. Most of the regular symbols are gems or fruit of some kind.
Look out for the compass symbol too, because if you get three of these you can get access to some free spins and/or money prizes via a treasure map.
This is where things get a little more complex. The skull and crossbones symbol is the bonus here. You have to get enough of these to access another game beyond the main game. This is known as the upper game.
There are several bonus round possibilities here. The first option is accessible with three treasure chests that will unlock the chest game. The second option is triggered with three boats, which releases the bonus game of the same name. Finally, you get a chance to find three maps on the reels. If you do this, you will get the paths game, where you find a path to a treasure chest.
The best bet with this game is to check out the options via the pay table and the demo mode. This enables you to give the game a shot without actually spending anything. You can then decide if Bucaneros will deliver the kind of gaming experience you are actually looking for. You might actually really like this one once you have seen it.
