Low value symbols come in the form of the high end of a deck of cards, from nine through to Ace. These symbols can provide wins between x0.3 and x3.2 the player’s bet, depending on the number of matching combinations that land on a single spin. 

Next up, maps, sand timers, telescopes and compasses depict the medium value symbols, offering between x1 and x7 the chosen wager.

High value symbols are represented by pirate captains that man the ghost ship. If the right number of winning combinations fall at once, these symbols can offer between x1 and x10 the chosen stake. 

Bonus crab coins are available, triggering the cash bonus game when three or more land on the same spin. 

Finally, ghost monkey wilds can drop into play, substituting for all symbols other than the bonus crab coins. Additionally, stacked 1×2-size ghost pirate symbols are available, triggering a free respin in which they stay sticky on the reels for one enhanced spin. 


Each time a ghost pirate wild appears, it will award one free respin in which it stays sticky in its cell to award further wild wins. This can be repeated if another pirate wild drops into play on the free respin.

In the cash bonus game mode, players are given three spins where gold coins displaying monetary values between x1 and x10 can drop into play. Each coin, or other bonus symbol, that appears will reset the number of spins to three. 

Sitting to the right of the board is a ghost pirate multiplier reel. Each time a coin drops into play, all symbols will shift one space to the right to get closer to this multiplier reel. 

Starting at x2, the multiplier reel will enhance all coins that eventually slide over to it, before placing the coins with increased values back on the main part of the reel in a random position. 

The ghost pirate can also place coins on top of other coins to add their values together and make room for more coins. 

Available bonus symbols include a ghost monkey and a treasure chest. The ghost monkey will reveal a multiplier value between x1 and x3 that will be added to the ghost pirate’s multiplier which will subsequently increase, further enhancing the next spins. 

These ghost monkeys will then turn into gold coins after performing the additional multiplier feature. 

Additionally, treasure chests will reveal a monetary value between x1 and x3 that will be added to all coins once they reach the ghost pirate reel. 

Furthermore, players can buy access to this bonus cash game mode for the price of x100 their stake. 


Mike Collins, Product Owner at Thunderkick, stated: “Get ready to set sail on a hair-raising journey… Bones & Bounty is full of thrills, and we’re delighted to welcome players aboard our pirate ship headed straight towards big wins.

“Stacked respin wilds keep the momentum high during the base game, with a multi-faceted and unique bonus round that packs in plenty of excitement – and abundant chances to take home a hauntingly good prize.”
