BountyPop Game Characteristics
BountyPop’s special features: potentially 5X9 grid, multiple picker wheels, buyable free games, win lines capped at 59049, maximal X100 win multipliers, X0.2 to X10 regular payouts, and eleven total bets.
BountyPop has a wispy basic 5X3 grid on a purple-and-blue background. Basically, the neon-framed grid uses 486 lines that pay left-to-right and vice versa. BountyPop’s total bets: $0.2 (minimum), $0.3, $0.5, $0.7, $1.00, $2.00, $3.00, $5.00, $7.00, $10.00, and $20.00 (maximum).
BountyPop has thirteen symbols: one special and twelve ordinary symbols. Special symbol: the free games-activating scatter is a petite cyan “bonus” pirate. Ordinary symbols: off white captain pirate; crown-wearing golden pirate; brown-lit handgun-wielding female pirate; purple-lit African pirate; violet-lit lean, bespectacled pirate holding a cannonball; aggressive muscular pirate in blue; dagger-wielding green female pirate; sword-carrying lime pirate; and fancy golden A, purple K, cyan Q, and blue J.
BountyPop has lowly odds.
Three A, K, Q, or J pay X0.2; four A, K, Q, or J pay X0.5; and five A, K, Q, or J pay X1.
Three lime pirates, green pirates, muscular pirates, and bespectacled pirates pay X0.5; four lime pirates, green pirates, muscular pirates, and bespectacled pirates pay X1.2; and five lime pirates, green pirates, muscular pirates, and bespectacled pirates pay X2.5.

There follows twice as many new cells as vacated cells after the disappearing winning symbols. Thus, the grid’s height starts increasing uniformly or irregularly and rightward or leftward. Regular game: 5X6 grid maximum. Free games: 5X9 grid maximum.
Three “bonus” pirates offer six free games. Four “bonus” pirates: nine free games. Five “bonus” pirates: 12 free games. The six or nine activated free games can be gambled in a cyan picker wheel whose (in claimable first gamble and, luckily, second gamble) blue “X” segment nullify and green segments offer “+3” free games.
The six buyable free games cost: $20.00, $30.00, $50.00, $70.00, $100.00, $200.00, $300.00, $500.00, $700.00, and $1000.00. The color-coded picker wheel-embedded multipliers: X2/X3/X5/X10 for 5X6 or 5X7 grids; X2/X3/X4/X5/X7/X10 for 5X8 grids; and X3/X4/X5/X7/X10/X100 for 5X9 grids. The X55000 win can yield a $1100000.00 non-progressive jackpot.
