Ghost Pirates Slot Review

Ghost Pirates has 5 reels and 243 ways to win and was created by NetEnt. The game has beautiful graphics and creepy sounds fitting the theme of phantom pirates and their surprise attacks on other ships for riches. Embark on the pirate ship and get part of the loot. Remain patient so as not to scare away the enemies and raise the Jolly Roger flag when you are ready to take on this hot game and grab a fortune.

This is a high variance slot machine - you get frequent small wins but it takes time to get good money wins. The anchor and the cannon form winning combinations with just 2 symbols but they are the least paying symbols of the game. What makes winning difficult despite the 243 ways to win feature is that the first symbol in a winning combination must be on the first reel and symbols have to be adjacent.

In order to profit from this game you must get the Free Spins feature where wins are tripled or get combination of 5 symbols with the scatter symbols where your win is multiplied by 50 while activating the free spin bonus. Using all 243 ways to win the minimum bet is 25p and the max bet is £62.50 per spin.

The 243 ways to win feature is much more rewarding than the traditional payline format because instead of a limited number of lines, you have 243 ways to win, as long as symbols in combinations are adjacent to each other from left to right you get a winning line. You can decide to lower the win ways to 3, 9, 27 or 81 bet ways but then your chances of winnings decrease as less squares are used on the reels.

The ghost pirate symbol is a wild symbol, that symbol only appears on reels 2 and 4. The ghost pirate wild symbol acts as a substitute for all symbols to complete winning combinations. Contrary to most slots, the wild symbol will substitute for the treasure chest scatter symbol to complete winning combinations and to activate the free spin bonus game.

The treasure chest scatter symbol can be placed anywhere on the reels to complete winning combinations, as long as at least three treasure chest scatters appear left to right in consecutive order, from reel 1 to 5. Scatter winning combinations are multiplied by 2 for three scatters, by 20 for four scatters and by 50 for five scatters.

Three or more treasure chest scatters found in consecutive order on the five reels activate the Free Spins feature. All winning combinations are multiplied by 3x too. The number of free spins won is proportional to the number of scatter symbols that activated the bonus. 3 treasure chests gives you 15 free spins, 4 treasure chests gives you 20 free spins and 5 treasure chests gives you 25 free spins. Additional free spins can be gained, the same rules apply as activating the bonus.

Ghost Pirates slot is a fun game to play. Just remember that big wins are possible but it may take you quite a few spins to get one. The maximum win is a cool 764 times your stake with my best being a nice 320 times my stake. Despite the newer NetEnt games having better graphics and animations, it’s well worth playing and I consider it to be in the same bracket as Piggy Riches and Dead or Alive.
