While most casino slot machines with a pirate theme see fictional characters take centre stage, Wild Seas by Elk Studios sees the Swedish based company kick off 2018 with a swashbuckling adventure that is based around the exploits of a real she-pirate who sailed the stormy seas.
Taking inspiration from the legendary Anne Bonny, an Irish pirate who operated in the Caribbean, you’re about to sail back to the Golden Age of Piracy to help the female protagonist reap revenge against a trio of rogue captains from Portugal, France and England by plundering their convoy of merchant ships – and she’s willing to share up to 178,000 coins of the spoils for your assistance!
Set around the tropical island of Port Royale, the Wild Seas video slot sees you join forces with the infamous she-pirate to search across 5 reels with 4 rows of symbols in the hopes of spotting galleons that can be raided for treasure chests filled with bronze, silver and gold coins, and to come face-to-face with the rogue captains across 178 connecting paylines.
The quest for revenge and loot begins from as little as 0.20 credits and increases to a high limit of 100.00 credits. Elk Studios report that it’s a medium variance slot with a payout percentage of 96.30%, but it’s the epic battle that plays out in the two-level free spins feature that will really immerse you in the action as you enjoy an assortment of Wild symbols, including Sailing Wilds and Sticky Wilds, while cannons erupt across the reels for titanic wins.

Set in the choppy waters that surround Port Royale, the transparent reels of this free Wild Seas slot machine provide stunning views of the background that showcases various bays where ships dock, and you’ll be hoping to capture a glimpse of plenty of galleons that belong to the East India Company fleet so that you can plunder them.
The multi-decked sailing ships have been loaded with treasure chests loaded with a variety of coins. Raid those containing bronze coins with octopus engravings and you’ll receive up to 60 coins, silver coins with the East India Company logo engraved on them are worth up to 80 coins, while getting your hands on shiny gold coins that have bandana-wearing pirate skulls engraved on them will see you secure up to 100 coins.
Capturing any of the three rogue captains that betrayed her father proves to be even more lucrative as she will reward you with up to 200 coins for delivering the Portuguese captain, bringing the French captain to face her sees you receive up to 300 coins and even greater rewards of up to 500 coins are on offer for serving the English captain on a plate.
Anne represents the highest-paying symbol on the pay table as she presents you with up to 1,000 coins whenever she makes an appearance, plus the Wild Seas flag flies proudly as the special Wild + Bonus symbol.
A Wild Seas flag flying on the second and fourth reels during the same spin will see the reels become shrouded in fog as you hear the thunderous blasts of cannons echo out – a sound which signals that you’ve triggered the dramatic, yet extremely lucrative, Break the Convoy feature.
This sees you receive eight free spins with one of the three rogue captains randomly selected as your opponent and the chosen one will replace the two others throughout the feature. This captain’s ships then cover the fifth reel and sail one reel to the left after each free spin, followed by pirate ships that can fire cannons and strike those on the same row. A strike inflicts damage that keeps that ship in place for one spin, while three hits see it sink to be replaced by a treasure chest.
Collecting as many of these treasure chests as possible is the main aim during the first level as you’ll need at least one to access the second level, titled Loot the Treasures. Those treasure chests become Sticky Wild symbols and the middle three reels are filled with them to further boost your odds of landing big wins, with the sticky fun only ending whenever a barrel explodes on the first reel.
Most pirate-themed slots available at online casinos are dominated by male protagonists, but Wild Seas sees Anne join a few other she-pirates in plundering their way across the seven seas.
Play Labs have introduced us to the heroic Lady Pirate who appears alongside her squawking parrot in 3D format to take on a sword-wielding, patch-eyed pirate in a battle for the riches of the sea. While the base game wins of up to 2,000 coins are impressive, things get even more exciting when masts appear as you win 12 free spins and explosive wins occur every time she blasts cannons at the enemy ship.
Another she-pirate you don’t want to mess with is the Pirate Princess. This protagonist is the creation of Eyecon and she is far more dangerous than she looks, but those who help her pillage merchant ships will be handsomely rewarded with lots of free spins and lucrative pick me games for showing some bottle.
Anne Bonny has bided her time to reap revenge on the captains who betrayed her father and it’s easy to see why so many players are flocking to join her on her conquest due to the combination of the powerful storyline, the exceptional graphics, the variety of Wild symbols that have been included and the dramatic free spins feature that sees the animosities come to a head.
However, it’s important to remember that this is an extremely volatile slot and if things don’t go to plan, you’ll be feeling as miserable as a freebooter suffering a bout of scurvy, so tread very carefully!
