This seafaring slot machine gives all of you spin pirates out there the chance to grab a big old bounty of 2,500,000 doubloons. Shiver me timbers, indeed! No matter whether you are a landlubber, scallywag, a buccaner or a son of a biscuit eater, this slot machine is really easy to get the hang of and you will be hoisting your bets and spinning the reels in no time.
With 5 reels and 21 paylines, Pirate's Treasure Deluxe offers a fairly decent amount of winning chances. What's more, with a wild symbol, free spins and some bonus games, there is every possibility that you will lay your dirty mitts on that legendary Pirate's Treasure.
You better find your sea legs if you want to spin this slot machine because you will be joining a merry crew of pirates. On board the ship is a the captain himself (who looks like he could do with a nice long bath), a fair wench, and the captain's parrot. All of these character icons are presented in great graphical detail and they will come to life with brief animations whenever they line up in on a winning line.
Players will need more than just some shipmates on their quest for the Pirate's Treasure, which is why the slot also features a couple of important tools. First of all, there is a golden compass to help you find out where on earth you are going. And secondly, there is a great big cannon s that you can send your foes to Davy Jones' Locker!
The rest of the game's screen is filled with visual wonders. For a start, the reels are set in front of a sublime scene of stormy seas and choppy waves, while the reels themselves are framed in gilded wood. Also, all of the action takes place while a tropicana-style score plays to place players right into the heart of pirate infested Caribbean waters.
Now that you've met the crew, let's talk about the really important business – what this slot machine will pay in prizes. Well, the line bet multipliers begin from as little as 3x for finding three Q, K or A symbols on a payline. Five of those generic icons will pay 20x, which is quite small – even for such a commonly occurring reel symbol. The bigger wins are found when player line up five symbols depicting props and characters. For example, five compasses and cannons will pay out 100x the value of bets per line, while a parrot will pay 500x and the lusty lady will pay 1,000x. The biggest win of all rewarded by the captain who pays up 5,000x the line bet when five align. Even if one of these captains appear on the reels, then spinners will receive a 2x multiplier.
The game allows spinners to play on either 1, 5, 9, 13, 15 or 21 lines, and the available bet sizes start from as little as 1 credit per line to 500 per line. So, players will find that they can set up the game to sail smoothly and conservatively, or they can go into riskier waters and throw everything they have into getting that big bounty. If you were to throw 500 credits at a spin, then you could end up with 2,500,000 doubloons in treasure.
No matter how many pieces of eight you win, there is always a chance to double it with the gamble feature. During this side game, the ship's lady will deal one face up card and four face down cards. You simply have to pick a card with a higher value than that shown to double your wins.
Pirate's Treasure does offer some bonus bounty, courtesy of some special symbols. First up is a wild symbol, which is no other than our trusted captain character. So, whenever this swashbuckling seadog appears on the reel, there is every chance that he will complete a winning line on behalf of other symbols.
In fact, the wild captain will replace all icons except for the scatter symbol – which is the chest of treasure. That is because this icon doesn't need to appear on paylines to pay a total bet multiplier worth up to 50x. Plus, three or more of these bounteous bonus icons will trigger 10 free spins, during which punters can unlock a special bonus game by finding two ship symbols on reels 1 and 5.
Pirate's Treasure Deluxe serves up some top-notch swashbuckling adventures with its vividly designed symbols and exciting bonus features. Admittedly, there are lots of other slot machines of this theme and calibre available on the market, like Pieces of Eight for example. However, you would find it difficult to find a game which offers more adrenaline than this one with it's massive potential top prize of 2,500,000 smackers.
