Ghost Pirates

Ghost Pirates
Here’s a game loosely based on Pirates of the Caribbean if you’ve ever seen one. Explore the gloomy underworld of the ghost pirates in this spine-tingling 5 reel slot game from market leaders NetEnt. There’s a huge 243 ways to win in an online slot where you must match ghostly pirate Wilds, duelling pistols and submerged canons to unearth the sunken treasure and steal your fortune and a whole load of free spins.

About the Developer
NetEnt is a Swedish company that was founded in 1996 and is among the most successful online casino software providers. Boasting over 300 fully licensed portals, it is clear to see how the developer has maintained a strong reputation over the last 21 years. Over the years they have overtaken other casino industry giants such as Microgaming, IGT and Novomatic. They also maintain that they always deliver innovative designs with their own slot-games and ghost pirates is no exception to this rule!

About the Game
There are no tricks to be had here, only treats to devour in this ghoulish-ly themed slot-game. It offers you up 243 ways to win – much better than the typical 5-slot, 25 paylines you would expect in most other slot games! It has no bet lines and instead there is a button panel with 3, 9, 27, 81 and 243 different ways to win. You have 1-5 bet levels and this allows for a maximum win of £45,750 if you are playing for real money. Wins are calculated on consecutive left to right symbols however what makes winning more challenging is that the first symbol in a winning combination must be on the first reel and symbols must be neighbouring. This is a main difference between your standard 15-25 payline setup that you will have seen in your other familiar games, where you could win if 3-5 symbols appeared anywhere on the reels. Yet NetEnt wants to create a refreshing way to engage your interest and win money and we think they do this spook-taculary in Ghost Pirates!

The scatter symbol is represented by the Treasure Chest which activates the Free Spin Bonus game. This symbol does not have to appear on the same payline, and you just need to have 3 or more in consecutive order to trigger this bonus game, whether that be vertically or horizontally aligned. If three of more of the scatter symbols appear anywhere on the five reels it activates the Free Spin Bonus Round Game. Up to 25 free spins are up for grabs and as even better bonus, if you discover 3 or more Treasure Chest symbols within these free games, you can earn even more free spins. A haunting x3 multiplier is also activated during any wins you acquire during these free games. This is undoubtedly our favourite feature of the game as it means the rewards are potentially endless!

If you are just starting out as a new player in the world of online casino games, you can decide to lower the win ways to 3, 9, 27 or 81 bet ways instead of 243, but then your chances of winning decrease as less squares are used on the reels. However, with the minimum bet of just 25p a spin, there is very little to be missing out on! Plus, with a max bet of £62.50 per spin, there really is something to offer for every type of gamer out there!

The Verdict
The Free spins feature is by far our favourite part of this ghoulish-ey slot-game! being able to continuously receive free spins joint with the fact that the minimum bet starts at just 25p per spin, you would have haunted dreams if you didn’t just give this game a go!
