Take to the high seas with Wild Jane The Female Pirate in this 5 reel, 20 payline slot from Leander Games. This pirate adventure offers plenty of chances to make off with some treasure thanks to the extending wilds, free spins with a frozen stacked wild and a pick me round. Set sail, on all devices, from 20p to £80 per spin.
Wild Jane is a well-produced slot – set against the deck and rigging of a classical pirate ship, the reels include lower value playing cards as well as a sextant, a telescope and members of Wild Jane’s all-female pirate crew. The pirate with the patch is the best of these, offering 2,500 coins if you land 5 on a payline.
Skipper Jane is the wild – she replaces all other symbols apart from the bonus and scatter. When she does land, she will expand and turn the whole of that reel into a wild. There’s also a scatter that offers payouts of up to 100 times your total stake. Wild Jane comes with a pair of feature rounds.
Shoot The Tankard Pick Me Bonus feature – land the pair of pistols bonus symbol on reels 2, 3 and 4 on the same spin and you’ll trigger this pick me round. You’ll be taken to a new screen and offered a selection of tankards. Choose 6 of them which Jane will then shoot to reveal cash prize.
Find The Treasure Free Spins Bonus feature – land the free spins symbol (the chest full of gold coins) on reels 1, 3 and 5 to trigger this round. You’ll get an initial 10 free spins but there are chances to add to that total. First pick 1 of the 3 pirates who offer a different combination of free spins and multipliers.
- Beth – up to 15 free spins with a 4x multiplier
- Eli – up to 20 free spins with a 5x multiplier
- May – up to 25 free spins with a 6x multiplier
You’ll then be taken to a new screen where you dig for extra free spins and multipliers. Watch out for the bombs though which can bring your shovelling to a premature end. Once the free spins commence, a stacked wild will be locked in place throughout the feature, filling the whole of reel 1, complete with the multiplier from the digs.
Wild Jane The Lady Pirate take a classic slots theme and gives it a sisterly twist – by and large it works very well. The glossy visuals are nicely done and there’s a suitably stirring soundtrack blasting away in the background.
The features impress too. The expanding wilds are central to the action, especially in the free spins round. We managed to land 250 times our stake after getting a good haul of extra free spins in combination with the 5x multiplier. It’s not the easiest to trigger but offers the potential for some spectacular action. The pick round doesn’t quite such a volatile mix. We enjoyed some solid results from it all the same, averaging around the 35x mark.
Pillaging pirates have been hugely popular with developers and players alike – Wild Jane The Lady Pirate is another good one. Combining high-end design with a pair of punchy features, this is a cracking little pirate yarn – I also recommend you try Novomatic’s Red Lady which has a similar theme.
