Turn the Gulls Down!
Play ‘n Go have certainly pulled out all the stops with this slot machine because it offers crystal clear graphics, high definition visuals and a perfectly fitting soundtrack. If the seagulls annoy you whilst you are spinning the reels, like they do when you visit a seaside, you can use the control panel to switch them off – if only it were that simple in real life.
Hunting for Treasure
You are invited into the era of piracy, in the heart of the Caribbean sometime between 1500 and 1830s – where it eventually dies out. Buccaneers were lawless and did all they could to pillage and terrorise the seas in order to get their hands on as much produce and wealth as possible and you are invited to do the very same thing, in the Jolly Roger slot machine.
We love the design of this video slot machine, its reels are hammered into the side of the pirate ship with the paylines highlighted in various coloured viewing holes. Look beyond the logo and you’ll see the sea floating by and the clouds floating through the pure blue skies. The lower of the reels offers the control panel – which is easy to navigate and adjust your bets.
Treasure chests, treasure maps, parrots, jolly roger flag, diamonds, ruby rings, golden coins (reminiscent of the coin from the Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl smash hit movie), pirate, pirate ship, cannon and cutlass grace the reels of this slot machine.
Five of a kind of the jolly roger flags on your payline and you will activate the non-progressive jackpot of up to 10,000. Bet max stakes if you wish to get your hands on this cash amount. Each of the bonus features allow you to win up to 4,000 – but you’ll have to trigger them first.
Other symbols on the reels offer between 75.00 and 1,250 for 5 of a kind.
Jolly roger symbol is wild, replacing everything on offer (bar scatter and bonus symbols) to help fuse the gap between winning and losing paylines.
The squawking parrot is the scatter, two or more are required to receive a payout.
Three or more treasure chests and you will enter the bonus game. Deep in a hidden cave, with water dropping around your ears, you are required to pick two chests from the five on show. Each chest reveals a cash prize – the amount you win will be shown on your screen. Both amounts will accumulate to show your final prize and then you will need to click the ‘Back to Game’ message to head back to the reels. The amount you can win during this bonus is as follows:
- 40.00 to 2,000 for three chests
- 60.00 to 3,000 for four chests
- 80.00 to 4,000 for five chests.
Trigger the Map Bonus with three map pieces in your active payline. A map will be shown on your screen and you are required to pick three places to dig. Cash values will be shown and will be added to your bankroll. Just like the treasure chest bonus, you click the screen to head back to the reels.
Sailing to Victory
We won’t lie to you, the Jolly Roger slot machine can award some big wins but you may be playing a while before triggering any of the bonuses in this medium to high variance slot machine.
Bonus features are what we love and it’s these that can boost your bankroll drastically – especially with the cash amount of up to 4,000 that’s hiding within the treasure chests. The sounds, graphics and visuals are spot on – if you love pirates and big wins, you can find them whilst playing this slot game.
