Pirates and gold go together rather nicely, and while we have seen countless pirate-themed slot games online in recent years, we’ve discovered one here that could eclipse them all. Pirate Gold is a superb quality slot that delivers on many counts. Will it deliver everything you could want from such a slot game? Let’s find out from our Pirate Gold slot review now.
This one is going to land during 2019, and we suspect it might turn into one of the best slots of the year. If you think you have seen everything there is to see from this theme, make time to give this new version a try. The best outcome is to score up to 32,270x your wager here, and while most players won’t get anywhere near that, they will get the chance to enjoy a great title.
This is another new title coming from the creative team at Pragmatic Play. They’ve had some big hits already this year, and this new title looks set to continue or even exceed that trend.
There is a demo you can check out for this game. It comes loaded with $500 in practice credits. You cannot withdraw these, of course, and if you scoop any prizes, they will be in demo credits that are returned to the game. You won’t be playing to get prizes though – the demo merely shows how the game works.
Of course, we have pirates aplenty to contend with here. The game loads to reveal pirate ships on the waves and boy does everything look real. We’re heading back to pirates in the past in this game, thanks to the clothes and the buildings you will see in play.
Definitely. This could be one of the most impressive and detailed designs we’ve seen so far. Not just this year, but ever. It is that good.
We get five reels here, but with four icons per reel there are more lines involved than you might think. We’ll come to those shortly. Meanwhile, the game offers a Minor jackpot, a Major jackpot, and a Grand jackpot. These are all mentioned on the game screen.
The game also gives us a bonus symbol we can use to get through to the free game feature. It also offers a Lucky Treasure Bag round if we are fortunate to get that far.
It does, and there are 40 to place your bets on.
Choose coins worth as little as one cent each or as much as 50 cents. Meanwhile, up to 10 of those coins can be wagered on every line.
It appears in the usual place in Pragmatic Play games, tucked away in the bottom left corner of your screen. This reveals more details about what to expect from Pirate Gold slots. It shows you the treasure chest used as a wild, popping up on all the reels apart from the first one. This substitutes for all but the bonus icon and the money bag.
Eight money bag symbols must be discovered in a spin to trigger the Lucky Treasure Bag round. The bags that unlocked the round will remain in position for three respins. Other symbols are taken away and replaced by money bags, retrigger symbols, or multipliers. Some spaces may also be blank following a respin.
If another money icon appears, the respin counter goes back to three. The idea is that you carry on respinning the reels until all the spots have money bags on them or your respins end. If you did manage to get a money bag in every position, the Grand jackpot would be paid. If you don’t manage that, you still get the amount garnered from all the bags there added together.
Yes, you need three bonus symbols to get these. The bonus symbol is shown as a compass and can appear over reels two, three, and four. If this should occur, 10 free spins are given to you.
You will spot a male pirate and a female pirate in these games. If they should pop up on any of the reels except for the first one, they will transform into wild icons. Furthermore, another set of compass bonus symbols will add on more free games.
Pragmatic Play has designed this game with an RTP of 96.5%.
How could we rate this as anything less than 9 out of 10? We would have given it top marks, but we suspect the odds of getting through to the Lucky Treasure Bag feature will be quite long. That is where the jackpots can be won, but you could secure other prizes there instead. It all depends on how many money bags show up.
We will have more information about winning players once the game is released. However, we think the game will attract a lot of attention with those three jackpots in play. The slot is designed for players who like the volatility level to be higher, so not everyone will be pleased to see that level in play.
This game is good enough to play for a while just in demo mode. If you decide you want to do that, you can check out the various features without spending a cent to do so. It is a good way to see what you reckon and to figure out how the high volatility level works.
You can, of course, if you find enough here that appeals to you. Will you decide to play for real money? It’s up to you but do decide on an affordable budget and remember you may not win more than you lose.
Pirate Gold slots will be on mobile devices on all platforms if you would rather play this way. Of course, the usual desktop download and Flash play options will be available too.
