Five Pirates Slots

How many pirates does it take to make a truly swashbuckling slot machine? Well, if this Lightning Box game is anything to go by then the answer would be Five Pirates.

With 5-reels and 1,024 different ways to win, this game is sure to put the wind into your spinning sails. Plus, this video slot machine has more bonus features than you could shake a parrot at, including five different free spin options which give this slot machine its title.

Pirate Adventure

OK, so if you are a slot machine fan then you have probably played your fair share of pirate based games. Because, let's face it, pretty much all software companies have at least one buccaneering slot up their sleeves. Lightning Box's attempt to create a pirate themed video slot is a valiant one and they have done well to capture the sense of romance and adventure that goes with a life on the seven seas. As such, the game's reels are set over a bright blue sea with choppy waves while a golden sunset provides some calming contrast.

On the reels themselves, spinners will find all of the props and tool they need to find their sea legs with a navigation map, a locked treasure chest, a loaded cannon, a pirate's parrot and a golden doubloon decorated with an iconic Jolly Rodger skull symbol.

Five Pirates also features a couple of seafaring characters with a male pirate who acts as a wild icon and a female pirate who is the games scatter symbol. Both of these characters perfectly embody the graphical style of the game, which may not necessarily be to every players taste. That is because the 2-dimensional illustrations do seem a little bit dated and cheap in appearance when compared to many modern slot machines which go for 3D characters. In fact, with all that hair on show, these two pirate characters do look a little like they just stepped out of an 80s glam rock music video. And there's nothing wrong with that!

Spin Up some Bounty

When it comes to the business end of this slot machines, players should be remember that there aren't any particular paylines involved. Instead, there are 1,024 different ways to win by finding identical symbols on consecutive reels from the first reel on the left going to the right. When such a pattern of matching icons occur, a line bet multiplier will be applied to calculate the winning score. For example, two “9” icons on consecutive reels will multiply the line bet by 10x. That doesn't sound like a lot but that is smallest win available so they are only going to get bigger as you find more reels with matching icons.

Five reels with a cannon or parrot icon will pay a line bet multiplier worth 750x while five map or treasure chest icons will pay a prize of 1,250. The biggest line bet win of all is when five golden doubloons line up the reels to award a multiplier of 2,500x.

That isn't the biggest win, however – not by a Long John Silver. The biggest win is in fact rewarded by the scattered lady pirate who will multiply all bets when five of her appear on the reels, paying out a jackpot of up to 200,000 credits.

A Bonus with Five Pirates

Not only does this feisty lass give out the biggest wins, but she will also give players the chance to partake in some special bonus games in which they can lay their hands (or hooks) on even more bounty. Whenever 2, 3, or 4 scatters appear on the reels, the “Hold n Spin” side game will begin, during which all scatter symbols are locked in place before they extend to cover the entire reels. 3 free spins will be played giving punters a chance to lock in further scatters. If all 5 reels are locked in, then a special “Pirate Barrel Bonus” will begin.

This extra special bonus round asks players to select barrels from different levels to reveal arrows which will move up or down the prize tiers. The game will end when a prize is revealed, offering the respective amount of free games and multipliers for that level.

Hop on Board

Five Pirates may not be at the absolute cutting edge when it comes to graphics, but this 1,024 ways slot machine is certainly worth its weight in doubloons when it comes to bonus features. As such, every spin of this swashbuckling game promises the potential for some winning action, if not some exciting pick'em style gameplay. Plus, with a 200,000 credit jackpot up for grabs, you would be a scurvy-knave to turn down a few spins on this Lightning Box slot machine.
