Following the stratospheric success of the Pirates of the Caribbean movie franchise, NetEnt released a brand new slot themed around blood-thirsty pirates, sparkling treasures, and thrilling adventures. The new game has the mysterious name of Ghost Pirates. Let’s find out if it’s worth exploring!
The slot has an easy-to-follow plot line: ghost pirates on their deadly vessel are chasing a trade ship. Another routine day in the Caribbean… Just kidding! Despite its gloomy vibes, the Ghost Pirates slot is very fun to play.
Instead of classic paylines, the slot machine has the so-called Bet Ways. You can select 3, 9, 27, 81 or 243 Bet Ways.
The more Bet Ways you select, the more winning combinations you can count on. In the majority of slots, a player is not allowed to choose the number of Bet Ways. Ghost Pirates gives you this opportunity, allowing you to manage your winning chances.
To change the bet size, there are two buttons available. Click the Coin Value button to change the coin denomination. Click the Bet Level button to set the number of coins (1 to 5). The biggest wager per spin is $125, while the minimum bet is only $0.1.
To place the maximum wager, use the Max Bet button (you’ll find it right below the Spin button). Plus, the slot offers surprisingly flexible Auto mode settings.
Ghost Pirates is one of the few slots that lacks the omnipresent card symbols. Expressive and memorable characters are one of the slot’s undeniable strengths. Meet the pirates Peggy Rotten and One Eyed Ed, as well as Mad Monkey with a cannon ball and Polly the parrot. Other pirate-themed symbols include anchors, cannons, pistols, and amulets.
The highest multiplier is х1500. To get this juicy payout, you need to land five symbols with the scary captain Peggy Rotten. Two Anchors come with the lowest multiplier (x2).
In Ghost Pirates, payouts are determined by the number of selected Bet Ways. Naturally, if you’re using all the 243 Ways, you can enjoy the biggest cash prizes. However, this rule doesn’t apply to combinations consisting of the main symbols (pirates and their pets).
The slot features standard bonus symbols – Wild (The Skull and Crossbones Pirate) and Scatter (Treasure Chest). The Wild symbol has only one talent – it helps you land wins by substituting any symbols, including Scatter.
Scatter too has a magical ability. It triggers free spins. If your selected number of Bet Ways ranges from 3 to 81, you have a chance of getting 20 free spins with х3 multiplier. If you activate all the 243 Bet Ways, you can look forward to 25 free spins.
