Head out on a seafaring adventure
The design in this seafaring adventure is terrifically well done. With a harbour shrouded in mist in the background, the reels are set against a wooden backdrop. There you’ll find a selection of pirate-related symbols. In order of value are bronze, silver and gold coins, a hook hand, a telescope, a treasure map, a ship and a parrot. The male and female pirates are the best paying symbols. They both award 0.1, 0.5, 2.5 or 12.5 times your total stake if you land 2, 3, 4 or 5 on a payline.
The treasure chest full of gold and jewels is the wild. This can land on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 only. As usual, it substitutes for all the standard symbols. Pirate Gold comes with 2 potentially explosive bonus features.
Unlimited free spins with extra wilds
Free Spins feature - land 3 of the scatter (the ship’s compass) on reels 2, 3 and 4 on the same spin and you’ll receive a payout equal to your total stake as well as 10 free spins. Any of the male and female pirate symbols that land on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 turn into wilds. Unlimited retriggers are possible here too.
Respins with huge cash prizes
Lucky Treasure Bag feature - on each spin, you could see bags of money, complete with cash and jackpot values attached. Land 8 or more of these on the same spin to trigger this second feature. The money bags are held and you’ll be awarded 3 respins on a new set of reels comprising blanks, money bags, multipliers and retriggers. If a new money bag hits, the respins reset to 3.
Once your respins are done, all of the money bags are added together. If a multiplier symbol landed, the money bag total is boosted by the amount shown. This can be anything up to 5x. If you manage to fill the whole of the reels with money bags, you’ll pocket the Grand Jackpot. This comes on top of any winning you might have already won – it’s worth 1,000 times your stake.
32,270 x stake wins possible
We really liked Pirate Gold. The design is as good as you’ll see anywhere and there’s a swashbuckling soundtrack playing in the background. The features certainly match up to the impressive sound and visuals too. The free spins with added wilds and the streak spins offer some serious potential.
These pirate-infested waters can be dangerous for your bankroll though. This is an extremely volatile slot game with possible wins of 32,270 times your total stake from the Lucky Treasure Bag feature! If you fancy some virtual adventuring on the high seas, then you won’t go wrong joining the Pirate Gold crew. I also suggest you try Wild Seas from ELK Studios which is also very good.
