The base game of Booty Bay is played across a 5x5 grid with low paying symbols being portrayed as bronze, silver and gold coins with the higher paying symbols being shown as the slots protagonist characters. The game requires 6 or more matching symbols to be formed in a cluster to award a win. The base game is also home to the booty wild symbols this substitutes all paying symbols, the wild has a multiplier attached with the multiplier increasing by one each time it is included in a win.
The Hotzone - The central 3x3 area of the game grid and has the ability to trigger unlimited respins when at least one wild is present within the hotzone. At the end of each spin if a wild is present in the hotzone a respin is awarded with the wild moving to any adjacent position.
Locking Wilds - Triggered by landing the locking wild symbol anywhere on the reels, any wild in the hotzone is locked into position for three respins its multiplier increases by x1 each spin and the wild will not move to any adjacent places.

Genius Gambling Review
Booty Bay's wild mechanic reminded us heavily off the original Jammin Jars bonus given that wild multipliers rarely move where you actually want them too. The game when it decides to can provide the player with huge hits, multiple wilds and trigger different features all of the one spin. However what we found during our time with the slot was that Booty Bay's mechanics sometimes felt they were actively working against us. Once a wild leaves the hotzone you will no longer get a respin with the hotzone being a 3x3 grid it only takes two respins for the wild to move from the centre and therefore the best position in the game to outside of the hotzone and at least in our experience this happened a lot. Just as the multipliers of the wild grew to a point of awarding a huge hit, frustrating but also to be expected. If you can look past this feature and see the game as a chance of landing a huge 20,000x and not focus so much on the smaller 10x - 100x wins you will really enjoy Booty Bay. Its high volatility will either award you a huge win or frustratingly tease you with a chance only to award a much smaller hit than expected. Because of these reason we give Booty Bay our Genius Gambling Rating of 6 out of 10!
