8 Golden Skulls of Holly Roger Slots

The 8 Golden Skulls of Holly Roger is an incredible rip-roaring MegaWays slot. It was developed by Big Time Gaming, in collaboration with Buck Stakes and Microgaming.

With those three globally respected developers on board, this slot game promises treasure status already! But does it hold up to scrutiny? Our slot review team took a cutlass to the innards of this mile-a-minute slot. All with the aim of seeing exactly how it works, and what's in store for you the players.

Let's dive in and find out, with our 8 Golden Skulls of Holly Roger review.


The 8 Golden Skulls of Jolly Roger has reasonable graphics. Nothing hugely exciting, but they look good enough! The real attraction though is the MegaWays engine and the huge list of gameplay features.

This game has an incredible 117, 649 ways to win! That's because there's no traditional reel structure. Every time you spin the reels anywhere between 1 and 5 symbols can appear on each of the six reels.

That means you could, potentially, fill a full 30 of the same symbol for a huge win. Very unlikely but you never know!

Other features include:

  • Mystery symbols
  • Collapsing reels
  • Free spins round with cool minigame
  • Firepot jackpot symbol

That's a lot of features in one game!

Mystery symbols appear on the reels as a treasure chest, before popping open to potentially reveal a win!

Collapsing reels occur after a win. Your winning symbols will collapse and disappear and then more symbols will fall in to fill their place. This can happen again, creating a chain reaction of wins!

That can be extra useful for getting you into the bonus round as well.

Before we talk about that though, see below, there's one more symbol to mention!

The all-important 8 Skull firepot jackpot! This one's easy, as you can see the tracker on the side of the game screen. Just hit 3 or more flaming skull symbols to win the corresponding prize. Get all 8 and you'll hit the top prize of 40,000x. Not bad, eh?

Flaming Skulls - It's the Bonus Round

To hit the free spins bonus round in The 8 Golden Skulls of Holly Roger, you have to collect four diamonds in one spin - or in one go of the collapsing reels. Like any self-respecting pirate, of course it was diamonds!

Once you do a cool skull-centered wheel pops up, with loads of multipliers and numbers on it. Spin it and whatever two wheels match up on your arrow you'll get that many spins and the same multiplier.

The best you can get is 30 free spins with a 3x multiplier. Tasty!

This is a high variance game. So, a lot of the payout you'll potentially make will come from this free spins round. And it doesn't come up that often. But when you do, you'll usually be in for a good payout.


  • Loads of features, and a bonus round minigame
  • Megaways format and a jackpot
  • ·Decent theme and graphics but nothing spectacular

Our 8 Golden Skulls of Holly Roger review verdict? A great slot game overall.

There are loads of ways to win, and features, so it feels exciting.

It's not the easiest title to understand, with a lot going on. And the variance is very high. But generally, we just enjoyed playing it!
