We’ve seen pirates before, but who are the ice pirates of this game, we wonder? They certainly appear to be a motley crew, as shown in the loading screen of this game from Endorphina. We soon find ourselves on the chilly seas, with chunks of ice floating in the water. Where are those pirates and what do they hold in store for us?
Some of Endorphina’s games are based on a simple five-reel, 10-line format. This one is just such a game.
Change the coin value in the top left of the screen, using coins from one cent to a dollar a time. You’ve also got an option to increase the playable coins from one to 10 per line.
The mustachioed pirate is the wild in this game, replacing everything except for the skull and crossbones wearing a scarf and hat! We guess he must be feeling the cold. As you might suppose, the skull and crossbones are the scatter symbol.
Twelve free games will be yours whenever you manage to find three of the skull and crossbones characters in one spin.
There is another intriguing feature here too. The fifth reel shows various icons with multiplier values next to them. Frozen ones are not active for that spin. If you score a winning line with an active multiplier of 2x, 3x, or 5x next to it, that amount is applied to your prize.
All the multipliers on reel five are active throughout your free spin feature. Furthermore, you will get two additional multipliers worth 10x and 20x apiece. That means you could end up with some hefty wins if things go your way during that round.
Ice Pirates is a charming game, well put together, and providing players with some interesting features. We’ve never seen a fifth reel occupied by multipliers before, and certainly not with frozen ones in play. This ties in nicely with the theme and makes the game even better than it would otherwise be. Will you meet the Ice Pirates to see if they are feeling generous today? You can always try it free to start with to see what you think. We doubt you will be disappointed when you play.
