Yggdrasil Gaming keeps releasing high-quality pirate-themed slots week after week. Recently, the company released Shadow Raiders MultiMax with skull multipliers and a top payout of 15,000x the player's stake.

Before players at regulated online casinos can get enough of this slot, Yggdrasil has partnered with Peter & Sons to debut Barbarossa DoubleMax. This pirate-themed slot features intense action with a 20,000x prize up for grabs. 

Forming a winning combination is quick and easy, with players only needing to match 3+ symbols to receive a payout of up to 1x the stake. You’ll find pirate-themed symbols such as anchors, steering wheels, bottles, guns, and pocket compasses. The red-bearded pirate (Barbarossa) and the male/female pirates are the high-paying icons. 

Meanwhile, Yggdrasil Gaming added its innovative DoubleMax Game Engagement Mechanic (GEM) to the game. This feature rewards players with a double win multiplier with each cascade. After the winning symbols have been successfully removed from the reels, a wild will replace them to increase the player’s monetary rewards.

As that continues, players can find at least three scatters to win seven free spins. That’s not all. Every two extra scatters in the bonus round will reward gamers with two additional re-spins. Furthermore, the game’s Multiplier Jumps can randomly activate at any given moment, causing the win multiplier to ascend one space, amplifying any gains.

Gamers looking to jump into the bonus game can pay an additional 0.25x to double their odds of unlocking the free spins. Alternatively, pay 100x to buy into the bonus with seven guaranteed free spins. Paying 200x the wager will grant you up to 11 free spins automatically.

Yggdrasil’s GATI technology powers the Barbarossa DoubleMax slot machine. This technology allows game developers to access a pre-set, regulation-compliant, standardized toolkit for creating cutting-edge online casino games. The platform also offers swift distribution to Yggdrasil’s casino network. 

Stuart McCarthy, Head of Product & Programs at Yggdrasil, stated:

“We’re delighted with this swashbuckling new slot. It’s another winning title that we truly believe will succeed thanks to its excellent features and mechanics, especially the DoubleMax GEM.”

Peter & Sons’ Business Development Manager, Yann Bautista, remarked:

“Working alongside Yggdrasil to develop new titles like Barbarossa DoubleMax has been fantastic for us as we continue our mission to deliver thrilling experiences and great artwork to players around the globe.”
