There’s €250,000 in Booty to Be Won in New Game Pirate Jackpots Slot
Gold, booty, and rum a-plenty – what could be better than sailing the Seven Seas in search of fat merchant ships to plunder? Forget that 9 to 5 sitting-behind-a-desk-all-day thing – that ain’t living.
We’re all for adventure and thrills and risking it all for a pocketful of Doubloons. So join us now as we embark on a raucous seafaring voyage with Belatra and their latest release, Pirate Jackpots slot.
Immerse yourself in a world of wonder
This is a truly magnificent-looking game. The 5×3 reel grid sits against a backdrop of islands, azure water, along with a skeleton hanging from a tree and a sinking ship. Everything is popping with detail and vibrant color.
It’s one of the best-looking games to play on a mobile device. Everything scales really well – just look at how the jackpots are easily readable (especially when you compare this against the desktop version).
Other games don’t do this nearly as well and tend to lose the smaller elements. There’s a good balance between the background, which sets the scene, and the reels.
Shoot your canon and fill up those jackpots
This 20-payline game’s first feature comes in the form of Free Spins (or Free Games as they call it). As one would expect, you have to land 3 or more Scatters to kick this off. Three Scatters gets you 3 Free Spins; 4 Scatters gets you 5 Free Spins; while 5 gets you 7.
A nice touch is that these can re-trigger if you land an additional 2 or more Scatters on the reels. Each time you enter the Free Spin round, this will continue until at least one of the following symbols appears: a hatch, pistol, cannon, golden cannon, or skull and crossbones.
The hatch, which looks like a square of wood with a wig-wearing skull coin on it, will pop open to reveal either credits or nothing. The pistol triggers an additional Free Spin (up to a maximum of 10).
The cannon shoots the jackpot – you’ll see these listed on top of the grid. There are 5 types: Caribbean, Indian, Atlantic, Pacific, and North jackpots. The normal cannon shoots 1 shot, while the golden one shoots 3. After each shot, one of the jackpot meters fills up a little and the object is to fill it up completely in order to win.
Filling these jackpots happens throughout the Free Spins feature. Oh, and you can win a bunch of jackpots simultaneously!
Ain’t no watered-down wins here – there’s €250,000 for the taking!
Before we draw our conclusion of this game, let’s look at all of the technical aspects. The RTP is a really poor 92.13% and that’s coupled with a high volatility. The Multiplier is 2,500x while the bet limits range from €0.20 to €100. The top prize comes in at a mouth-watering €250,000.
So while the game is simply stunning, and the features are decent enough, the low RTP is a disappointment. Luckily, the high volatility and the excellent top prize make up for this, but it could take you a while – and a fair amount of cash – to clinch that booty.
There are other pirate-themed games to consider which have better RTPs, such as Pirates’ Plenty: Battle for Gold slot, or Caribbean Anne 2 slot. Having said that, Pirate Jackpots slot is still a pretty cool game, and definitely one to consider if you’re playing on a mobile device, because it looks so damn awesome.
