Ghost Pirates is a cinematic slot, developed by NetEnt. It has 5 reels and up to 243 ways to win. With superb graphics, there are a couple of key pirate characters who you will meet up on the reels in your quest for treasure. As well as hundreds of ways to win, there are two special features which include free spins.
Hop on board the pirate ship for a swashbuckling adventure among the eerie, ghostly scene you step into. The Ghost Pirates slot looks as though it could be a cut from a hit movie. The logo certainly has some resemblance to a particular pirate-themed bunch of films! We’ve got pirate skeletons climbing top the wooden structure, wherever it may be. The flames firing out of the posts while you spin the ghostly reels are a great finishing touch.
Prepare to Set Sail
There are quite a few options for you before you get started. Firstly, there are 243 ways to win, but you can choose whether to play them all at once. Instead of paylines, it’s more a case of landing the same symbols on consecutive reels from left to right.
You can choose how many of these ‘pay-ways’ to play with; the options vary from 3 up to 243.
Once you have decided on paylines, you can choose your coin value. This can be set between 1p and 50p and will be multiplied by a figure which represents the pay-ways. It's best to have a play around with this first, so you can decide how to split your bet.
If you want to add an extra dimension to the bet, the bet level can be adjusted between 1 and 5. Whatever the bet level is set at will be multiplied by the rest of the bet to create the total bet.
Your total bet will be shown beneath the spin button, so check that you’re happy with it before you set sail on board this ghost ship.
Winning in the Rigging
Our ghost pirates and other characters are the most valuable on the reels. Regardless of how many pay-ways you have in play, the same values of prizes are up for grabs. Land three or more of the same symbols on an active pay-way and you will be rewarded.
Peggy Rotten can award you up to 1500 times your coin bet, should you land five of her across the reels.
Five green-faced One-Eyed Ed’s across the reels can award you up to 1000 times your coin bet.
Mad Monkey who has some very big ears and sharp teeth, if you can land five across the reels, awards up to 500 times your bet.
Polly the parrot can pay out up to 400 times the coin bet for landing five along the reels.
You will also see that there is some other pirate paraphernalia across the reels. From a map & compass to a canon and an anchor, these are the lower-value symbols in the game. Maximum payouts for these symbols range from 80 to 200 times the coin bet.
The Buccaneer’s Bonuses
The ghost pirates have got two special features to help build up that prize fund, if some lucky spins can trigger them.
There is a treasure chest Scatter symbol in the Ghost Pirates slot game which is your gateway to free spins.
Land three or more of the treasure chests from right to left on the reels and not only will you be awarded with a multiplier; you will be awarded free spins. Wins from landing multiple scatter symbols are multiplied by the total bet.
If all pay-ways are in play, you can get a maximum of 25 free spins. Otherwise, the maximum available is 20.
Any wins you make during the free spins feature are trebled!
Jolly Roger Wild
Perhaps the most recognisable symbol of pirates is the skull and crossbones. The Jolly Roger in this game is the Wild symbol, meaning it can substitute for any of the standard symbols in the game.
The Wild can appear on the reels at any time, no matter how many pay-ways you are playing.
It’s all about trying to extend the pay-way or build up some where there is potential!
A Ghost Pirates Life for Me!
The vibe of this game, thanks to the sound effects, is as though we are slowly sailing or even floating in an abandoned cave where pirates before us once ruled. The eerie creaks and squeaks definitely make you feel a little shudder every now and then.
This is, of course, great! The more like a movie it feels, the better the production and all-round enjoyment of it. Attention to detail is everything here, from the foreground all the way to the background. The Ghost Pirates slot in unique in its idea and appearance, bringing something new to the broad selection of slots out there.
The Return to Player (RTP) of this slot is 95.28%. We reckon it’s a medium to high variance slot, as you can get frequent small wins, but the free spins will be the decider on if there is to be a bigger payout.
Both ghosts and pirates are great slot themes, so NetEnt were bound for success intertwining them both here.
