Pirate Themed Online Slots

Published on: April 4, 2012 

Every generation has its own conception of the pirate theme. The younger lot will picture Johnny Depp playing Liar’s Dice in Pirates of the Caribbean. The older generation will bring to mind the character Long John Silver from the classic Treasure Island. Software providers have tried to capture all these various images in the pirate themed online slots games. This article described four of the best from different software providers.

The pirate captain is often portrayed with a parrot on his shoulder whose pet phrase is “Shiver me feathers”. This is also the title of the Microgaming pirate themed online slot game. The avatar of the parrot as the captain is the wild symbol and offers the top jackpot of 6,000 coins. In the animation the parrot explains where the treasure is buried using a map. The deckhand is depicted as a crow. The other thematic symbols are treasure chest, Jolly Roger and treasure map. The free spins are triggered when the treasure chest appears on reels 1 and 5 at the same time. Players have to pick from three red chests to determine the number of free spins and from three gold chests to determine the multiplier. Shiver Me Feathers can be played at Microgaming online casinos like Spin Palace and Platinum Play.

The software provider Realtime Gaming has a pirate themed online slot titled Goldbeard in its portfolio. Goldbeard is the wild symbol. It appears only on reels 1 and 5 but doubles payouts when it substitutes in winning combinations. The other symbols related to the pirate theme are gold coin, pirate ship, parrot, cannon and treasure chest. The gold coin is the scatter symbol. When Goldbeard symbols appear on reel 1 and reel 5, each symbol awards from 2 to 4 free spins. The payouts are tripled during the free spins and additional free spins may be awarded. Goldbeard can be played at Realtime Gaming online casinos like Aladdin’s Gold and Slots Jungle.

The Playtech pirate themed online slot game is Captain’s Treasure Pro. The highlight of this slot game is that the graphics are crafted in 3D graphics, which creates a better visual appeal. The background audio has the sounds of the sea and the ship’s wheel, which add to the realism. The usual symbols like the pirate captain, treasure chest, parrot, ship and cannon are employed, but the animations make them stand out. The treasure chest is both the scatter symbol and the wild symbol. It also triggers the free spins round that awards 10 free spins. There is no payout multiplier in the free spins but one of the regular symbols takes on the characteristics of the scatter. Captain’s Treasure Pro is live at Bet365 Casino and Paddy Power Casino.

The Cryptologic pirate themed slots game is titled Buccaneer’s Bounty. The unusual feature is that the captain is a female pirate. Buccaneer’s Bounty has even more amazing animations than the Playtech game. When the ship’s cannons fire the reels vibrate and the cannonball leaves black holes on the screen. The bonus features are also visually appealing and remunerative. Players can choose from Island Defender or Pillaging Pirate. Island Defender is more exciting. The player gets 10 cannon shots to bring down ships from the attacking pirate fleet. Buccaneer’s Bounty can be played at Cryptologic online casinos like InterCasino.
