Shiver Me Timbers, Matey! Let’s Find Some Treasure on These Reels!
Ghost Pirates is set out on a five reel interface, which is accompanied by three separate rows. This, therefore, offers players a familiar layout to play on. As mentioned, it contains some very thematically appropriate imagery, including crossed pistols, a compass and treasure map, a skull-marked pendant on a chain, an anchor, a lit cannon, jugs containing the pirates’ grog, and of course, the aforementioned pirate characters. Each of these four have been given a name, starting out with the captain of the ship, Peggy Rotten. There’s also One-Eyed Ed, and a vicious-looking, fanged primate known as Mad Monkey. Rounding out these icons is the parrot of the vessel, Polly.
Gamers choosing to play this game will see initially that there are 243 ways to win activated. This can be changed around at the bottom of the reels, with all players getting the choice of selecting three, nine, 27, 81 or the full 243 to be in play. This, of course, will alter your bet amount as well. And speaking of changing your wager, this can be tampered with even further, first of all by changing the actual bet level between one and five, and in the second instance by switching around the coin value. This begins from its minimum level of $0.01, and will increase up to a total of $0.50 per line. Therefore, if you set everything at its maximum level, you’ll be able to place an overall wager of $62.50 per spin.
What Ghostly Treats Exist in the Game?
Like most other online video slots, this game features its very own wild icon. This is represented by the pirate-hatted skull and crossed swords image, and as a wild icon, it will substitute for all others on the reels in order to create a winning combination. This symbol can appear regardless of how many lines are active.
There’s also a scatter icon, which is represented in this product by the gold-filled treasure chest. Coin wins on these symbols are calculated by multiplying the total bet for the round by a certain value, which increases depending upon the amount of scatters in view. Spinning three or more of these icons in any position will trigger the game’s freespins round, where all prizes are tripled. The amount of freespins you’re able to receive depends upon how many pay lines are active and how many scatter icons show up.
With three, nine, 27 or 81 ways to win active, you’ll receive:
- 10 freespins and a multiplier of two for three scatters
- 15 freespins and a multiplier of 20 for four scatters
- 20 freespins and a multiplier of 50 for five scatters
With 243 ways to win active, you’ll receive:
- 15 freespins and a multiplier of times five for three scatters
- 20 freespins and a multiplier of times 20 for four scatters
- 25 freespins and a multiplier of times 50 for five scatters
Dig Up the Gold and Sail Home!
This game isn’t specifically overflowing with innovative special features. After all, a freespins round and a wild icon aren’t exactly different to what can be found in many other games. However, when it comes to Netent’s products, it’s not really of any issue. The graphics, audio and intriguing game play alone are enough to keep us hooked, so the specialities still come as extra perks to us, regardless of how standard they are.
